4.0 out of 5 stars Chillax, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slim mat (approx. 18ins x 12ins) which feels cool to the touch. Does not cause any discomfort to lie on if slipped inside pillowcase or I've used it on top of the pillowcase to cool my head without any problems. It's good because it's so portable - you can move it around the bed and put it under your calves if your legs are hot, I also use it under my ankles when lying on my side.
I also bought one for a friend who takes it to work (easily folds into a medium size handbag) and she uses it at the back of her computer chair and she has been known to push it down the back of her top to cool her down when she's driving as well!
It stays cool for approx. 4 hours then I turn it over and use the other side where it keeps cool for about 2 hours more. There are no leakage problems like you get with "cooling pillows" It's not the panacea for all menopausal flushes but it certainly helps and I'll take that any day.

Great for alerting me if my elderly parent has wandered out of their bedroom in the middle of the night confusedly thinking it is time to get up. I use it on a windowsill at the top of landing / down the stairs and it is an extra warning system to me to get up. The light is quite adequate and the sensor is very quick to work.
PS The sticky pads would not be durable outdoors.

Nice to re-visit this and laugh out loud. It was supposed to be a gift for the other half but I got just as much enjoyment out of it as he did.

Great to be able to play all my vinyl, tapes and cds on one system again. The copying facility via USB stick is easy if you follow the instructions. System is a neat size and would look ok in any setting. Sound quality is good and volume is more than adequate.
My only quibble is that the lid on top is designed with gaps on all 4 sides and it would have been better as a "sealed" lid to keep dust off the turntable.

Prompt despatch and well packed. Very soft leather and was just what I needed to replace identical old one that was falling apart after many years use. Plenty of room for coins, notes and cards.

This review is from: 5 x Interior Dehumidifier
Was unsure about these as I didn't have a clue how they worked and whether they were safe to use but I must say after checking them out I have been pleasantly surprised. At first I thought they were useless as there was no visible improvement but after a couple of days the "nuisance" window and sill were dry. The 5 pack is extremely good value and should be sufficient to last all winter as 1 lasted approx. 7 weeks.Glad to have found them.

Prompt delivery and well packaged. Excellent product, good fit with plenty of slip under the mattress. Washes well. Quilting is adequate but this should not be confused with mattress topper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable product and value for money, 13 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a repeat customer as I always get excellent service from this seller (PC 247). Well packaged, prompt despatch and arrived before time.

Battery slotted in seamlessly to my Inspiron 1545 and had approx. 60% charge to start. Fully charged it gives just over 3 hours use. I use battery every day for a couple of hours and the previous one lasted approx. 18 months. This probably would have lasted quite a bit longer had "someone" not drained it completely .... twice! Hey ho.

I've been caught before with cheaper products that died after about 3 months and then seller tells me it's the adapter. It turns out to be nothing of the sort just a crap battery that I can't get a refund on.

Dell charge too much for replacements and why bother with them when this is a perfectly acceptable alternative.

Update Feb 2013 - battery still gives 2.5hours use from full charge.
