Belkin Genuine Premium Leather Tab Cover for iPad Mini with Moulded Corners for Secure Hold - Brown with Magnetic Closure

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing case - Works with iPad Mini 2 (retina), 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice leather case. Holds the iPad (a Mini 2) firmly with a reassuring snap! The two external corners are protected by the way the case holds the iPad. The case offers multiple viewing angles and has a nice microfibre lining, and best of all it has magnets to automatically switch the screen on or off. And it costs less than the plastic smart cover from Apple. Great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Li-Ion Charger, 10 Dec 2013

Well made, intelligent charger for 14500 and 18650 batteries. Not the cheapest but worth it IMO. Delivery from Germany not the quickest.

Keeps bananas fresh and stops them over-ripening. If you keep them in the fridge too long the skins do go a bit grey, but better than black squishy bananas. Still not sure what the string is for, as it isn't a draw-string and the loop is on the other side!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good but pricey!, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried to buy some aftermarket LED T10s to replace my sidelights. They were cheap but far too blue and looked chavvy. These on the other hand have a very bright, 'clean' light, not too warm perhaps, there's a slight pink/mauve hue, but it's not a cool 'blue' white either so doesn't look silly with normal headlights. Overall, expensive but good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says., 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used as a replacement for ordinary AA batteries (in combination with a dummy battery to bring the combined voltage to 3.7v (3.7+0) instead of 3.0v (1.5+1.5)) it powers my digital camera like a dream. Seems to hold its charge well as opposed to NiMH batteries which loose their charge quite swiftly on standby. Well made and importantly, protected from over-charging *and* over-discharging. PS - Remember to always use a LIon charger. They're not compatible with other types!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, effective, cleanable can opener, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a Magican can opener for ages. It was good, it did the job but it was a devil to clean properly. In the end it just got too manky and I had to get a replacement. After lost of searching online, I chose this OXO good grips opener and I'm very happy with it. It works well, it holds onto the cut lid and because the workings are on the side, it can be cleaned effectively. Recommended.

These are excellent headphones, but check the prices. They are available direct from Amazon for 20. Sennheiser CX175 Ear Canal Earphones Also, they are also NOT noise cancelling. They are noise ISOLATING because you jam them in your earholes. They are no more sophisticated than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle, essential bath moisturiser, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Started using this in our baby's bath after he started developing eczema on his legs. Used in conjunction with Oilatum Junior cream it cleared up and has never returned. Leaves skin soft and moisturised but not greasy. Essential for dry or sensitive skin and much better value in this large size than the smaller bottles found in high street chemists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 'phones, 21 Dec 2012
I'd previously owned some CX300-IIs and was very pleased with them. So when they eventually died I was interested in something similar.

From what I could find online, the CX175s are supposed to be the replacements for the venerable CX300s, and my impressions seem to back this up. The sound is incredibly impressive: clear and open, allowing me to hear detail in familiar songs I hadn't heard previously. But it's also surprisingly bassy for an in-ear headphone.

One of my only bugbears with the CX300s was the asymmetric cord which is mercifully absent on the CX175s.

Better still, Amazon currently seem to be selling these 'phones at 30% off the RRP.

One last word of warning. If their predecessors are anything to go by, there may well be quite a lot of fakes about, especially of they become popular, so be careful if buying from unscrupulous 3rd party sellers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great baby bath, 21 July 2012
Ignore the poorly translated 'product features', this is a sturdy plastic baby-bath with a non-slip pad and central plug-hole. Dimensions: 73cm x 42cm x 22cm high. Suitable for 0 to 2 yrs according to the manufacturer. Fits our 7 month old (who was too big for the bath support but is a bit lost in a full size tub) with room to spare. Fun colour and easy to fill and drain. We had a bit of a problem with the plug . After a while it kept popping out by itself, which was annoying. Fixed by using a Dremel to take some of the plastic off. Generally, recommended.
