5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Leads, 9 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basic leads which appear to work as required. The micro-plug is accepted readily by my devices, not always the case with spare leads.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Convenient and Efficient Charger, 22 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item is conveniently small. The input socket and USB ports are it opposite ends and thus they don't physically impose on each. Obviously to fit in six charging ports, they necessarily have to be close together, but I have not found any difficulty in using the sockets with at three USB plugs simultaneously. It's finished with a rubber-plastic coating, quite pleasantly-tactile, and also there is the advantage in it does no slip around on a smooth surface.
The mains lead is ~1m long, fitted to a conventional British 3-pin plug. The disadvantage is that this is yet one more wire trailing around the work-surface. However, there is a considerable advantage to this arrangement: it has no bulky integral plug-and-transformer so one can use it in an extension block without it making the sockets on the block to either side unusable, thus saving space in the long run.
I have only been using it for a fortnight: thus I have no comment on its durability. However, I can confirm that it appears to charge two 2.1A tablets successfully and simultaneously. There are so many reports of chargers exploding and overheating, I note that this charger remained cool whilst servicing two tablets. This seems to me to be of the utmost importance, but I repeat that I've only used it for a relatively short period of time.
Given that caveat, I could recommend this item. It appears to function as described, and is quite convenient in use, reducing the number of separate chargers on one's desk.

For such a basic item there is little to review apart from the fact that it is as described, and it fits the purpose. The screw threads are accurately machined.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Device, 20 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The device is made from light grey plastic but it appears robust enough for casual desk-top use. I suspect it would not survive many falls, or being lugged around in a kit-bag.
I use it for checking rechargeable batteries, AA and AAA primarily. For this it works quite well as described, indicating as to whether they have been charged or not.
The battery under test fits quite firmly between the spring-loaded terminals, enable good positive electrical contact.
There is no numerical reading for voltage, instead a scale of 'weak' though to 'good'. However this is perfectly adequate for my purposes.
It does cater for a good range of battery types.
In all, it works quite adequately: it's quick and easy to use..

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Kit, 20 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They function as described. The adhesive held during some heavy rain, and also during hot days. Careful cleaning prior to application is obviously necessary.
For the price (approx £3.5), it's cheaper than an argument with a potentially-awkward French Gendarme. It's an argument that I wouldn't win.
It's also approximately half the price of that in the local stores.
The instructions are detailed and comprehensive: they do enable accurate and correct location.

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient Device., 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this in conjunction with my Panasonic FZ200: setting the latter on a tripod near to my bird-feeders, excellent close-up photos can be taken. The birds soon become familiar with this set-up.
I have used it some 8 metres range: I've not checked the maximum range. It works through double-glazed window.
The auto-focus function operates. The time lag for the shutter response appears no significantly slower than manual operation of the shutter button on the camera. Fitting it to the camera and then becoming familiar with the system took very little time.
I note prices fluctuate, but I thought this an excellent item at the price I paid at the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Device, 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lead enables me to transfer images, via a card reader, from camera cards onto my Hudl. Whilst on long trips away from home, I find it useful to be able to look at my images on a screen larger than that of the camera. The Hudl is perfectly adequate for this purpose.
The lead appears to be well-made and works well. A minor point: a super-flexible wire might have been an advantage.
It is worth remembering that offering a male lead into the Hudl micro-USB socket does need CAREFUL but FIRM force to ensure contact is made. Do not assume that your items or systems are faulty.
I use it in conjunction with the Integral USB Single Slot Card Reader.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The device works well. It appears well-made and adequately robust.. A transparent cap protects the USB contacts, but this fits firmly and will not accidentally become detached in transit.
The indicator diode is a useful feature in confirming that the SD card has been recognised, and then by flashing it indicates that transfer of images is being effected.
In all,the reader does the job for which I bought it, which was to enable me to download images onto a tablet whilst on trips away from both home and PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, and genuinely Free Software, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The various Lexar cards have proved to be reliable and good value. This type in particular appear to quite fast enough for my FZ200, when taking successive action shots.
I would also recommend the free Lexar software 'Image Rescue 5'. It is indeed totally free, and didn't come with any baggage such as malware, as far as I could see. Download the software onto your PC, then use the code on the front of the leaflet enclosed with your card. Full access is then enabled. Ignore the suggestions that you pay: just enter the code.
This software enabled me to recover some important and irreplaceable images which I had accidentally erased from both card, laptop and backup!!!
It is of course better not to use the card again before a recovery is attempted,to avoid overwriting. In my single experience the several hundred images were recovered successfully. The software does add some weird and wonderful numbers to each image, bearing nor resemblance to the file number produced by the camera: this a small price to pay for the successful recovery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic, Effective, Cheap, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It appears basic because it is, but it does the job more effectively than a screwdriver, and rather more safely. When a screwdriver slips towards and into the other hand, it can be unpleasant to say the least!
With this simple tool, sufficient leverage can be generated to push off the back with no problem.
My wife has just restored three watches to working order using this tool with no howls of pain.
