3.0 out of 5 stars High quality build - but some drawbacks., 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent construction. These batteries would have received 5* but for a few niggles, not the fault of the seller.

The Fire button on these models is awkward and could do with standing a little prouder or recessed, have to grope around for it.
A "nipple" fire button would have been better. Hope Aspire redress this issue.

Also the voltage readout is a bit small and could be marked in a different way. I use an indelible marker on the silver base and line it up with the yellow "Aspire" printed on the CF body @3.8v. That way I know roughly where I am without looking at the tiny readout.
I didn't expect the "barber-shop" two-tone grey/silver stripes to be go garish/effeminate . Should have looked closer @ pics. Monotone looks better.

Last the same time as my Aspire 1300mA/h CF vv attys. The spring loaded center pin is good quality but not really required as I don't over-tighten and can use a screwdriver!

A mechanically well constructed item with a few design flaws.

The1600mA/h is a little cumbersome, so I would definitely recommend the 1300mA/h instead!

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware! - 4.2v NOT 3.7v output., 24 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are not 3.7v fixed output as advertised.
Just like all the others that look similar they are 4.2v FIXED output cells.

I have bought 6 (returned 4) from different retailers, they just have their own name printed by the Chinese suppliers.

You can find them on Alibaba.com usually advertised as 3.8-4.0v - but actually 4.2v fixed. NOT 3.7v as advertised so be aware!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value., 24 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived very quickly. 3 wkg days to outlying part of UK (normally +1 day).

Great value compared to superstores like Tesco/Argos who charge almost £5.00.

Only reason I didn't buy 10 is that it would take 2 lifetimes to use them!
As it included P&P - fantastic value!

Traditional Beige Brown Medallion Runner Rug 63cm x 240cm (2ft 1" x 7ft 10")

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong width advertised/invoiced., 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Runner Rug was 60cm x 240cm. Not the advertised 63cm wide. Otherwise excellent value for money.
Just remember, 3cm can mean a lot to some people for a proper lay.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST QUALITY IN 12 YEARS!, 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality!!!!
The packaging is a little smaller and cheaper than the expensive so called "high quality" ones supplied by local pharmacies, but it's the contents that matter!

I have been getting 6-8 different brands from local pharmacies for 12 years now, Top names - Usually Mediskin/Bodyguards/Fortuna/Cyraguard/Braun.... etc.
They have just got worse over the last few years, guess even the chemist shops are giving fakes.

Have I just touched lucky? Tried stretching and purposely trying to split/break - no chance. These are the nuts!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad design., 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally impossible to see how much water it is holding. Guess work only.
Very flimsy water fill hatch, looks easy to break and had to re-insert it correctly from box.
Looks like this item has been designed for left-handed use.

On the plus side - quite heavy and does a great steam job. Just run a garden hose from the sink to the refill inlet?

4.0 out of 5 stars Just OK., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather larger than I expected (I did measure compared to my usual bags) and require a large cup/mug. Best suited for my teapot.
Otherwise they are fine.
Why are these things so expensive? Too few makers/lack of competition?
I prefer the Simpli-Special (filters-4u).

3.0 out of 5 stars Repacked?, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More expensive than buying individual 5x10x boxes, but no choice as all local stores are either out of stock or selling the "New improved version" (yep... less content - more watery...Yuck!).
These boxes were scuffed as if kicked around and appear to have been packed by hand as all the individual sachets looked as if they had been "clawed". Looks like "bankrupt/repackaged" stock to me. That's only MY impression.
I could smell the coffee from 20+ feet away before I even opened the Amazon box, suggesting the individual sachets had been crumpled/pummeled. Poor value.
Still, better than the "New" product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good., 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for small carpets and rugs. Removed all stains and cat gunge!
Nice long handle and easy to use.

Shame Amazon won't send the Refill aerosol to Northern Ireland but quite happy to send full kit. So not for flight security reasons!
