4.0 out of 5 stars Pvc-backed tough polyester money/valuables belt which will survive damp or humid conditions, 17 April 2015
Length:: 2:09 Mins

This is a good quality money/valuables bag to wear around the waist when traveling.

The belt is made from elastic to give a comfortable fit and it is fully adjustable to fit. There are two compartments - the main one running along the full length and height and is ideal for a passport, driving licence and other travel documents while the shallower front pocket, which also runs along the full width, is ideal for carrying money and other valuables.

It fits neatly and discreetly beneath clothing and has a mesh-back for comfort.

Made from a pvc-backed polyester, it's quite tough and should stand up to a lot of use and abuse while traveling and will also survive wet conditions.

It's good quality and well-made with smooth-running zips. My only slight gripe is the pvc-backing to the fabric which makes it less wieldy and flexible than other money belts but the latter would be less-suited to a damp or wet environment, so for a damp or humid environment then this is the winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very lightweight, practical and functional sports/travel bag, 17 April 2015
Length:: 3:59 Mins

This is a very lightweight but roomy, 3-compartment bag ideal for all types of sports or travel.

It is made from a tough polyester fabric with a water-resist PVC backing and a further PVC layer to the base and lower sides. The main compartment is accessed via a 2-way U-shaped zip which runs right along the top opening flap ensuring extremely easy access to the bag's contents. Directly beneath the opening flap is a small pocket suitable for a wallet, purse, phone, keys, MP3 player or similar items you need to retrieve quickly and don't want to fall to the bottom. To each side is a further compartment, all sealed from the main section, and these are ideal for storing wet clothing, shoes or a towel - particularly in the compartment with the ventilated mesh top.

There are secure webbing carrying handles plus an adjustable, removable shoulder strap with padded, non-slip section for very comfortable carrying.

The bag is lightweight, spacious, folds away for storage and will withstand a shower or being stood in damp conditions eg a swimming pool changing room. It would have been good to see studs fitted to the base to raise it from the ground but this is just a very minor observation and doesn't detract from the 5-star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm white light at just 10% power consumption of a traditional reflector bulb., 17 April 2015
Length:: 2:44 Mins

I ordered this LED light bulb to replace a standard 40w reflector bulb. There was nothing wrong with the latter bulb but we are gradually fitting out our house with LED bulbs to replace the power-hungry and heat-generating traditional bulbs.

This arrived promptly and is the perfect replacement for the old original bulb. Build quality is good and the E14 fitting was perfect.

As for the light, it produces a very pleasant warm white light equal in output to the previous 40w bulb but our leccy meter no longer spins around but ambles at a sedate pace with only 5w being consumed. The bulb is used in our house-rabbit's quarters with a low ceiling. He doesn't like heat so this is perfect for him because it doesn't become hot and should he accidentally touch it then he's not at risk of burning himself - in contrast to the heat produced by the previous reflector bulb.

I am most impressed by the performance of this bulb, the light it produces and most of all the economy justifying its 'A' rating for energy efficiency backed by a 5 year (limited) warranty. I would have no hesitation in fitting out our entire home with these bulbs. They're brilliant - in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact, easy to use and reliable laminator, 17 April 2015
Length:: 2:31 Mins

This is an exceptionally easy to use laminator. Simply plug it in, switch it on, wait for the 'ready' lamp to illuminate and feed through your documents from credit-card size through to A4 and all sizes inbetween. It works both with and without a carrier but I found the results were better without.

It's made wholly from plastic, is lightweight, compact (unlike many including my previous bulky machine) and won't take up much space on a desk. It warms up quickly and is ready for use in just 3-4 minutes and should there be a misfeed or blockage then the ABS lever should release it. I couldn't test this, however, because none of my documents jammed but passed through smoothly.

It's a good machine, ideal for home or small office use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well designed 6-port USB charger, 16 April 2015
Length:: 3:03 Mins

This is just the product you need if, like me, you have multiple USB gadgets which need daily charging .

It's a compact, neatly-designed charger with a footprint just under 11cm square which runs from the mains and will charge up to 6 devices simultaneously. An especially good design feature is that the charging ports can be concealed when not in use: on opening, the silicone-lined aluminium covers form cradles suitable for standing a tablet or phone either horizontally or vertically (which is also a very good angle for using phones/tablets) and devices can be used while charging.

The unit feels solid and well-built, is highly practical and helps reduce clutter on a desk but most of all, it is such a practical solution for charging one or multiple USB devices simultaneously. It has well and truly proven its 5-star worth on my desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well-designed, usable and bright headtorch offering very good value for money, 16 April 2015
Length:: 2:32 Mins

This is a very handy headtorch which I use for walking down our dark, unlit, rural lane at night but also take camping.

Powered by 3 AAA batteries (supplied) it has 4 power modes - full power/bright, lower power, 2 red LEDS and a 4th mode where the central white and two red LEDs either side operate in a strobe effect.

It's comfortable to wear with a secure and highly-adjustable elasticated headband which doesn't slip and, thanks to its practical design and ribbed silicone power button pad, it is very easy to operate while worn. The power button is one of the easiest to find of any headtorch I have used and it can be used with cold and/or wet fingers. so many have a tiny, fiddly button which require the headtorch to be removed simply to operate it so this scores very highly for its practical and usable design, along with its tilt to adjust the angle for walking or cycling. It is also weather-resistant: it will withstand a shower or drips from a cave but it is not sufficiently waterproof to use for swimming.

The light is clean and bright and the flashing/strobe mode increases the wearer's visibility without the strobe being uncomfortable, unpleasant and feeling as though it's going to induce an epileptic fit.

Of all the headtorches I have used, and there have been a great many, this is one of the best and it's also one of the cheapest to my surprise. I've happily paid twice the price for a headtorch of a poorer design so this is one I can very confidently recommend as being very well designed, very practical, very comfortable and also very good value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - a well-designed, (almost) pain-free facial epilator with bonus facial cleansing brush, 12 April 2015
This is an exceptionally well-designed facial epilator which works very effectively in removing the shortest and finest hairs with the minimal amount of pain. A slight pinprick sensation and the unwanted hairs are plucked out and after a few uses, this is barely noticeable - but the results are very visible with hair-free skin in a matter of minutes

The facial epilation is gentle and does have the aggressive 'tearing hair out' feeling from body-hair epilators which are not intended for facial use. This is pleasant and comfortable to use, has a simple switch to adjust the epilation direction and it doesn't have a bright, blinding, LED light producing spots in front of the user's eyes

It is very easy to use by simply running along the skin while held taught. It's quiet, easy to carry and includes a top for carrying in a bag and thanks to using a single AA battery, which are available almost everywhere, is ideal for travel.

I have never used a facial brush before but was surprised how effective this is on my greasy skin. It swept away dead skin cells revealing fresher skin beneath while feeling tingly-clean and replacement brush heads every 3 months don't cost a fortune either.

This is a definite 5-star epilator ideal for anyone with any unwanted facial hair.
