5.0 out of 5 stars Two cables nicely finished., 1 Aug. 2015
In the box, I received two cables. The first is a very nice quality silver braided cable. It's sturdy and good quality and nicely made.It is designed and certified to work with the iPod the iPhone and the iPad. It's 3 m long and both heads are securely fixed to the cable which is flexible yet durable.
The second cable, a white one is a standard USB regular ended charging cable. This doesn't fit iPhones et cetera but it does fit android devices such as phones and tablets. It's a nice strong but flexible cable which looks good quality.

The set come well packaged and nicely boxed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 1 Aug. 2015
This charging cable, which I was sent for review, is nicely made, sturdy and good quality. It's 1 meter long. It's flexible yet strong and looks like it's going to be hard wearing. One end is a standard USB fitting the other end is only going to fit certain appliances. And when it describes itself as a micro-USB it doesn't mean the regular type of Micro USB means this specific type of micro-USB. See picture for A closer look at the connector. If this cable fits your appliance, it's a good buy.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a two pack set of 9 ounce plastic BPA free feeding bottles. There are three parts to the bottle top, the screwcap, the silicon teat and the lid. There aren't any adapter rings to clean or fiddle about with. The bottles are well made and sturdy. They are marked on the side with fluid ounces and millilitres. They are compatible with the whole event Phillips bottle range including their breast pump. The bottleneck is nice and wide and easy to clean. This particular pack is suitable for one month on.

5.0 out of 5 stars 22mm diameter, 31 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are a great device. They can really help to cut down on pain during breastfeeding and definitely worth a try. That and liberal applications of lanolin. The only problem is that different manufacturers seem to vary in fit and size. What fits one person may not fit another. The ones I received are labelled as '2, standard, 21 mm.' The 21 mm measurement equates to the diameter of the protector, minus the surrounding shield. I can't see that Phillips do any different sizes other than standard. So, if these don't fit, you may have to go with a different make. (Aunty Barbar.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Can go in microwave and dishwasher., 30 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice little cup. Just the right size. Suitable for 12 months onwards. BPA free. Holds 9 ounces Has ribbed sides to help with grip. I like the slight purple tint: makes it look a bit more jazzy. There's just four Parts. The bottle itself, the plastic lid, the screwtop and the sippy insert. It's fairly thick silicone. My niece gets on with it fine.
Comes with instructions inside. It's okay to go into a microwave. It all goes in the dishwasher. This is designed for water and milk. It suggested that anything pulpy like juiced fruit may block the valve.
My only gripe is with the protective packaging. There isn't any. I would have liked a bit of plastic wrap over it, hence the four stars. Amazon packed it in a cardboard sleeve. Postman shoved it behind a plantpot containing an ant's nest – 'nough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the bright colour!, 30 July 2015
I'm very impressed with this cable. I have the blue one. It works with my iPod. It's really nice quality. Very substantial and looks like it will be hard wearing. It's the noodle type cable that doesn't tangle and it's extra long. I will just say that this is just for Apple and does not work with android. This would not fit an android tablet or phone.

The thing I like about it is the bright colour. It's very easy to spot and if it's plugged in with a load of other things it's easy to see what this blue cable is attached to without me having to tangle through a load of black wires. Is also a rather like the cheery colour. It brightens things up. It's nice quality and very good value. It's a thumbs up from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rolls-Royce of power packs, 30 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had quite a few battery packs over the past six months. I have to say that this is one of the nicer ones. It comes sealed. In the box you get a user guide which very clear, easy to follow and partially pictorial. The power pack itself feels nice quality. It has a very tactile, rubberised, soft-feel grip to the outside as an attractive metallic interface on the end. The finish is probably the best I've seen. It comes with a charging cable and standard suedette pouch.

Size -wise, it measures just over 3" x 5.5" x 0.75" approx. Its capacity is 10,000 mAh.

It's simple to operate. There are three ports. The small central port you use to connect the pack to your main supply either by USB to your PC or by adapter (you need to supply this yourself) to your wall socket. The other two ports are labelled 2A, for devices such as your tablet and 1A for devices such as your phone. Although it does say in the instructions that the 2 amp port is able toautomatically adjust its voltage to charge 1 amp devices, so it looks like a pretty safe piece of kit for your gadgetry.

The on button is flush to the side. Four green LEDs down the centre light up with regard to how much battery charge is left. When it is charging, the LED lights flash in sequence. Usage wise, mine charges both my phone and my tablet quickly, with no problems. That said, it doesn't appear to do anything a battery pack half the price doesn't do…

This power pack just screams quality and gets the thumbs up from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do the job ok., 30 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These scales are lightweight but there are little bit of a space hog if space is limited, measuring 22 cm x 13 cm. They came with batteries supplied. There is a button on the back that lets you can change it to pounds and ounces if you prefer. There is no cushioned top (I suppose wipe-clean is best) so you might want to place a towel under baby. It's best to do this before you switch on because it doesn't add the towel's weight to the baby. There is a TARA function if your towel is heavy (the facility on scales where it takes the towel weight away from the baby weight.) The weight is only displayed when baby stops wriggling. There is a hold facility which displays the previous weight when you switch on, so you don't have to memorise it from the last time. They switch off automatically after a few seconds. They begin at 50 g and go up to 20 kg – according to the back.

Looks wise, they aren't anything to get excited about they are functional. The instructions are clear, although it doesn't explain what the 'TARA' facility is used for. Just how to use it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very impressed with this LED rope light. It's quite heavy duty and sturdy for the money. It has the standard solar powered charging panel on it. But the actual rope light is a little bit thicker than some I've had previously.

It's a good long length at 33 feet, which equals around 100 LEDs. I chose white. It gives a good bright illumination. It comes with full, easy to understand, clear instructions which explain the functions. It comes complete with outdoor stake. You can also wall mount the solar panel.

The box says that these are fine for outdoor use. There are two function buttons on the back. One is on/off and the other is the mode button. With mine being white, you can choose either blinking or constant. The great thing about LED solar powered lights is, of course, they don't cost you a penny.

I will just mention that these don't come on until dusk and switch themselves off automatically, but if you want to check they are working during daylight, just put the battery box undercover and it will think it's got dark and come on.

These really are very attractive and I'm very pleased with them. This is a good quality LED rope light, highly recommended by me.
