These air stones work very well and are great value. Why pay more for less? Despatched from Germany very quickly.


Braun Oral-B Advance Power Toothbrush
Braun Oral-B Advance Power Toothbrush
Price: £8.43

5.0 out of 5 stars Squeeky clean, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My only experience of electric tooth brushes was with a cheap conventional type with a battery that was not replaceable. This produced a vibration that was different but not wholly effective. The Braun Oral B is a whole new sensation and really does remove the plaque from the teeth so that they meet the squeeky clean finger test every time.
Do be aware that the head is replaceable and this is recommended to be changed every three months as the bristles wear down. I have bought a set of eight that will last me for two years.
I can recommend this toothbrush for those who do not mind the weird sensation of a rotary vibration against their teeth and gums. The proof of the pudding will be during my next visit to the dentist for a check up. Hopefully the scraper will not be required to remove any hard deposits that have formed as is usually the case even though I brush up to four times a day. buy with confidence.

2.0 out of 5 stars Burned out after 3 months, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This aquarium heater began to look worn out soon after installing in my aquarium. The elements are visible through the glass cover and I noticed after a few weeks that discolouration had occurred inside the cover. Not long after one of the elements flashed and was destroyed, breaking the circuit and rendering the heater useless. A replacement was obtained under the manufacturers guarantee (2 years) following many e-mails and fruitless telephone calls to both shop and manufacturer. I had to invoke this as I bought the unit and did not install it straight away and when it died it was just out of the 1 year shop guarantee period.
To do this meant obtaining a returns note with number and filling out a form detailing the problem. The return postage was down to me and this cost over £4. Any dearer and it would not have been worth the bother. This burn out problem has happened before (see other reviews) so the quality control at the factory making these heaters needs looking at sooner rather than later.
On my experience of the product and the shop where I bought it from I would not recommend either to prospective purchasers. I will write additional notes to this review after a reasonable length of time has elapsed providing the heater lasts that long.


GP 1300mAh AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries 4 Pack
GP 1300mAh AA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries 4 Pack
Offered by Fast Batteries UK
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable source of energy, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used GP batteries before in my radio controlled models and trust them 100%. You never get a second chance if receiver or transmitter batteries fail while you are operating rc models, especially aircraft, so they have to be beyond doubt. These will power a transmitter for a nitro powered off road buggy that hurtles about so I am confident they will not let me down. NiMH do not suffer from the memory effect and can be charged at any point in their cycle. In other words they do not have to be completely discharged before you recharge them. Buy with confidence.


K12 Auto Red Rubber Grease 20g
K12 Auto Red Rubber Grease 20g
Offered by Turtle Products
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Made for the job, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: K12 Auto Red Rubber Grease 20g
Brake grease is a must when replacing disc pads. Not all callipers are noisy but those that are prone to squeek really do need some lubrication on the back of the pads and shims. Guide pins in rubber boots need some of this stuff also to enable the callipers to slide too and fro'. Think about the next time you do the job and how much easier it will be if things move and come apart without sticking and seizing up. Recommended to be used sparingly and with much caution to prevent contamination of the brake pad friction material and braking surfaces on the discs. If in doubt, take your car to a garage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short story of courage, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sniper (Paperback)
Fiction based on fact. Probably. It certainly gives the reader an insight into how barbaric things got in Stalingrad during ww2. Not a book that lasts if you are a page muncher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Accurate temperature reading, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have this in the top corner of my aquarium away from the filter, heater and air bubbles. The fish seem to like it and nudge it against the glass. It is a simple device that verifies quite accurately the set temperature to be achieved when used in conjunction with the heater I have installed in my aquarium. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sticky stuff, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These glue sticks work very well on most materials. The trick is to make sure the glue stick has reached operating temperature before trying to 'gun' it out using the trigger. Usually can tell when its ready when the glue starts oozing out of the tip of the gun.
I use it a lot on my rc models and all sorts of jobs around the house. Highly recommended.


API Fresh/Saltwater Nitrate Test Kit
API Fresh/Saltwater Nitrate Test Kit
Offered by The Aquahut
Price: £4.38

4.0 out of 5 stars Peace of mind, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have found this test kit easy to use and have confidence in its accuracy to detect nitrate in the aquarium water. Knowing what the nitrate level is to begin with in the domestic tap water supply I have been able to gauge the increase by comparison following the aquarium water test. I have found that the colour achieved from the two tests is very similar so from this I deduce that the aquarium water is being well filtered, ammonia/ammonium levels are low and that safe nitrate levels are being achieved. The tap water where I live has reasonably low levels of nitrate so any large increase would indicate a problem in my aquarium. You must make this comparison as you cannot be sure without it if the nitrate is being 'manufactured' by the fish or is already in the water. The test card with the colour comparison check list is quite difficult to read at low levels where the orange colours are so close together. However, the very low and very high readings (colours) would be easy to differentiate as they are so different in colour. Inspect under natural lighting conditions and hold the test tube to the side of the test card as holding it against the opaque test card makes the reading look darker than it actually is. The kit will enable many tests to be carried out so it really is value for money.


Ebest - 6" Lot of Classical Wooden Pepper Spice Salt Mill Grinder Muller, BLACK
Ebest - 6" Lot of Classical Wooden Pepper Spice Salt Mill Grinder Muller, BLACK

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor design - hardly any output, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compared to my old pepper grinder that had 4 adjustable output settings this grinder only has the one setting. This setting is useless as it hardly emits any ground pepper. What does come out is hard won by and constitutes a paltry fine dusting of pepper. The outward appearance is ok but its performance is shockingly poor. Leave well alone.
