5.0 out of 5 stars Space and weight saver!, 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried it out,and works perfectly!Bought mainly for trips abroad,as two 'phones,two tablets and a Kindle,not to mention two cameras,all travel with us,and all need charging at some stage during the trip.This little beauty means that we only need the requisite cables(all USB fed),and this single charging unit.Also means only one power socket needed;-an important fact,as we all know a lot of continental hotel rooms are well short-changed in the mains socket area!Other upside is,this charger weighs considerably less than the five units it replaces,and needs less room when packing;-a vital point in these days of ever decreasing baggage allowances.(Ryanair please note!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little piece of kit!, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my son,for Xmas.He's hooked it up to his Panasonic plasma T.V. and his WD NAS drive,and he assures me that it's the dog's nuts!Can't say fairer than that! He says he can access masses of internet "stuff",and lots of it is free,so looks like it was a good choice for a prezzie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth paying a bit more!, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've used,abused,and fairly rapidly discarded, loads of the cheap and cheerful styli,so decided to go for these as a better quality,and,hopefully,longer-lived option.I am happy to report that, so far, they are brilliant!They are,despite their slightly longer length,very light and comfortable in use,while still feeling very solidly made.They come with spare tips(piece of cake to fit!),which,because of their smaller diameter, are much more precise in use,particularly when using a"virtual"keyboard.With my iPad it was not an issue,but the smaller 7" screen on my wife's Nexus is now a joy to use,whereas with the bigger tips,a considerable amount of editing was frequently necessary!Bought spare tips,just in case,so on current usage,we should be set up for ages.Bonus is,you get another screen cloth with the spare tips.With several touch-screen devices, including iPods,'phones,and tablets in use daily, they get regular punishment, and are a worthwhile long-term purchase.P.S.The supplied mini-bungee lanyards are particularly useful in preventing my wife's stylus from doing a disappearing act down the side of her chair!(Once,a frequent source of annoyance!)

This review is from: The Long Earth (Kindle Edition)
Excellent!!!Quite a departure for Terry Pratchett,but,from this book,could be successful!Look forward to the Long War.Just hope the momentum is maintained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy ball, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ball is well made,quite thick material,and inflates to somewhat more than the stated diameter.Only gripe is the flimsy pump,but,hey!,it does the job,regardless,so four stars anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extras for the spiral., 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Already have the spiral habitat set for my grandson's Xmas present,but it only contains two bugs.These five will populate it perfectly,and,contrary to others experience,they are all different!Result!Batteries are not a problem,as they are available in most 99p or pound stores,and I assume they will not be running continuously,with various other prezzies to investigate. Tried one on the(hard)floor(N.B.They will not function on carpet!) and our dachshund couldn't get enough of it! Hilarious fun;-we may have to get him one of his own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value !, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived today,via Royal Mail,very rapid delivery.Considering the relatively low price,it contains quite a large and varied selection of magnets,(horseshoe,bar,wand and ball shapes). I anticipate that my seven-year-old grandson will have a great time experimenting with these,and probably learn a lot about magnetic fields in the process.I remember being absolutely fascinated by magnets at his age,so I have to give five stars for these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for new Nexus (2013HD model) which was,until now,living in a case for the earlier model.This is a super little case,perforated and cut away in all the right places,so now both the cameras can be used, and BOTH speakers heard,while the unit remains securely inside the case.The case closes around the tablet with an effective Velcro tab,and the sleep function also works perfectly.Generally a really well made case,and unbelievably cheap!Difficult to believe the quality for only around a fiver,inclusive of delivery.Various colors and patterns,so for anyone with a new Nexus tab,it's got to be a no-brainer! Incidentally,we have a NFC charger,and the tablet charges on this,quite happily,while remaining inside the case,so no wires,and no need to remove the case!Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars For my wife's Nexus 2, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant piece of tech!Previous tablet finally gave up the ghost,as continually plugging in the charger eventually damaged the socket.This unit simply remains plugged in,and you just plonk the tablet on top of it,and it charges!Apparently it will work with any device equipped with NFT,and that means most newer smartphones as well,and as it has no moving parts,it should be future-proof.
