Squatty Potty Ecco Toilet Stool - 7inch
Squatty Potty Ecco Toilet Stool - 7inch
Offered by StressNoMore
Price: £30.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, unobtrusive and -- best of all! -- it actually works!, 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent. The sitting position really does ease and speed your motions. It's much more robust than a child's toilet step-up stool - and, let's face it, you don't want to feel uneasy when sitting on the toilet! When not needed (ie for any gent who wants to stand for a pee) it slips back out of the way.


The High T Shebang (The Baby Troll Chronicles Book 1)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read from start to finish., 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read from start to finish. This book set in a world not too different from our own; one in which gods, trolls, imps play their part alongside humans. The plot's backdrop is a powerplay between different factions of the gods who have their own views on what part (if any!) they should play in the affairs of humans, but this is driven along by the main characters as they run to keep ahead of forces chasing them.

I liked the way that this 'world' is only partially explained. People inhabit this world, they do things, they interact; they don't stop to explain to the reader why things are the way they are. In this, it's quite like the Culture books by Iain M Banks.

All-in-all, it's a good read, not an easy book to put down and it leaves you anticipating the next in the series. What more could you want?

2.0 out of 5 stars Tight over the bridge of the foot., 4 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They were the correct length but if you look closely, you'll see that they are very tight across the top of the foot. Not enough room for a foot with normal socks let alone when wearing thick socks.

It's a little stiffer than most micro-USB connectors.

Philips Saferide 40 LED Bike Light - Battery Driven with UK Charger
Philips Saferide 40 LED Bike Light - Battery Driven with UK Charger
Price: £28.11

2.0 out of 5 stars Lamp great: battery pack poor, 4 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery clip is attached by Velcro strap and it's easy to misalign the hooks and loops in the dark. Why, you ask, would you want to remove the battery AND the clip from the bike? Well, it's easier to take off the whole thing rather than separate the battery from its attachment clip. The tiny release trigger is a real nail-breaker. And when you leave your bike round here, you have to remove everything or it gets nicked! Yes, you can clip the lamp and the battery together -- but they don't click/lock. As you go over bumps, they slowly separate! And the combined battery+lamp can only be fastened to the bike with the dreaded Velcro strap. Overall, it's a pity because the lamp is a superb beam pattern and decently bright without being dazzling. The battery though... No.

3.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: Be careful when opening the cute packaging., 19 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're supposedly not quite as bright as some 'equivalent' bulbs but that's not really a problem for me. I bought them for their longevity. Changing a bulb on my Ford means I have to take the headlight out (Thank you, Ford!) so it's something I don't want to do very often.

However, be very careful when opening the packaging. The cute little plastic box is made of 2 interlocking parts and when you finally manage to wiggle it apart - suddenly both bulbs pop out onto the table, your lap, floor, whatever. Very poor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for the price, but poor tolerances., 19 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice feel to them but cheap metals used and poor tolerances mean that they're more awkward to operate than other (admittedly more expensive) brands. Notice how (in the photo) the locking pawl doesn't fit completely inside the retaining notch. That's adjusted to the best it can do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Averagely good., 19 Dec. 2015

Exactly the same as all the others. Price is good. It all depends on how long the batteries last.
