3.0 out of 5 stars Very useful light, not sure about it's durability!, 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use with a USB battery pack as a nightlight in our bathroom. It clips nicely onto the shelf above the toilet, and on the 3 LED mode, it is easily bright enough to guide the kids to the bathroom, use the toilet and head back to bed without the need to put on the eye blindingly bright "proper" lights.

However, after about a month of use (maybe not even that) the cable has developed a bit of a wobble, and you have to arrange it "just so" to make sure the electricity flows and the light comes on. It's also stopped working properly on the 3 LED mode, and now we have to use it on 6 - which is fine, but if it carries on at this rate, it'll be completely broken by Christmas!

It is a great solution (for us) - just a shame it doesn't seem to be very robust.

Amazing. The flickering is very realistic, and these little beauties won't blow out on a windy, autumn night - so they are perfect!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I want to love it, but..........., 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I want to love this water bottle. It's orange (I love the colour), it's got the "no need to tip" thing that my previously beloved Camelbak drinking bottles have PLUS it's got a clever little cover thing that stops the mouth piece getting covered with cr*p when I take it out on my bike with me.

However, having had a couple of trips in a bike bottle cage the plastic is really badly scuffed (bad), and for some reason, the thing has started leaking really badly from the lid somewhere, so unless you keep it bolt upright, everything gets soaked!!

So, unfortunately, I will be taking my custom back to Camelbak.......

5.0 out of 5 stars A little leakproof lovely :), 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally leakproof - I throw one of these in my bag with some toasty tea in, and it stays toasty for about an hour, which is fine by me. Most importantly, despite not being careful about keeping it upright, it hasn't (so far) leaked. Not a drop.

I also like the drinking mechanism, and the fact that you can pop open the lid innards and stick that in the dishwasher.

A real winner for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in the colour - not like the pictures!, 8 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My case didn't arrive (not a great start) but having contacted the seller, one turned up a couple of days later (this was ~3 weeks from order date).

Unfortunately, it isn't anything like the case in the picture - I ordered the "zesty orange" case (although I see now that the description says "burnt sienna" - the option choice was definitely "zesty orange") and it is more like......well, it's not very zesty, or even all that orange to be honest!

Anyway, it's rubbish. So I've bought a very orange case from Tesco, which is lovely and complements my (orange) Hudl beautifully.

The photos show the difference between the case I bought here, and the Tesco one.....

5.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable, 30 Aug 2014
Not too taxing, a bit different - I really enjoyed it. True that it's a bit predictable and occasionally cheesey, but forgivabley so.

2.0 out of 5 stars Has not gone the distance, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had an Adidas green watch that I loved, but it fell apart and I couldn't get another - so I decided to try this Timex instead.

It's a great looking watch - to start with - but 3 months after buying it, the strap has started to discolour. I looks filthy (it's going black) but it's not out the outside, it's somehow in the plastic. Once I can find a replacement, it's gone.

Also, I've never really liked the buttons - too small, and too difficult to press. Overall - it's a fail.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm less muddy than I was, 25 April 2014

Not perfect, but it's nice looking, light, easy to fit and it definitely reduces the amount of mud that gets sprayed up my back - so a success I think :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great & has saved my phone., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like these cases, but there just wasn't a colourway that I liked - so I ended up buying this one, and the purple / turquoise one. I now have a purple outer (black was just too dull) and black inner and I like that very much.

I have dropped my phone twice since having this case and it's still fine - difficult to say whether the case saved the phone, but I like to think it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great salad box, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this a lot - salad in the bottom, cottage cheese in one of the top compartments, chicken or something in another. Everything stays fresh, crisp and separate until lunchtime - even having been carried in my rucksack on my cycle to work.
