Clipping dogs nails is terrifying for me and my dog, but these work really well. No mishaps.

It might not be clear from the picture but there is a little guard that can be moved out the way if needed but when in place only allows you to cut a couple of mm from the end of the nail.

These are top of the line 300mAh. @2mA they should last ~150 hours

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tough Phone, 4 Mar 2014
This is much like any other high end android phone. As of now it runs KitKat 4.4.2

It is in theory slightly slower than the non 'Active' equivalent. but in reality you wont notice this, to all but the most nerdy of users the specs are basically the same. But the IP67 rating is a big deal.

So dust proof doesn't matter to most people, if it does you likely have the kind of job where you know about IP67 ratings. What does make a big difference is it's just tougher. As someone who has smashed the screen on an SII and an SIII I've dropped this a few times and it hasn't broken. It's presumably not bomb proof, but that little bit of extra resistance makes a real difference.

A lot of the bad reviews are based on the sellers. Don't let that detract from a great phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the nightmare reviews on this product. I'd bought some before so i couldn't understand what had happened, thought they might be a different batch or something.

Nonetheless i bought another pack half expecting to have to bin them. But they are fine. Yes they will fail mechanically. But you are talking a couple of months by which time you should be replacing them anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks nothing like a TV, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is well made and the lights are bright. But the problem is it doesn't look anything like a TV. And this is fundamental.

It only has blue and white lights. And it cycles very slowly between the two. Nobody would be fooled in to thinking this was a TV; worse having a fake tv, to me looks like there's nobody home.

real TVs have different colours, flash at high speed, go dark. This looks like you've left a set of flashing christmas lights on. not a tv.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Performance for Such a Small Drive, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So i bought the 16GB version. actual size 14.6GiB, 15,716,286,464 bytes

I expected some compromise in performance for being so small, but i needed it to be that size. I was pleasantly surprised. i bought a sandisk 16GB last year that only manages about 2MB/s so i had expected something similar. best i have achieved over a sustained write is about 18MB/s read speed is around 19 for all but the smallest files.

My full speed test result performed on a half full drive, FAT32 are here. [...]But you are looking at around 12MB/s write and 19MB/s read for files down to about 0.5MB in size. smaller than that and things slow down quickly as with all flash drives.

Difficult to review a dog collar obviously. It's good quality and well made. Really suits a long haired dog like my sheltie.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome maps, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HERE Maps (App)
The detail in the maps and the supplementary information is really class leading and by some margin.

If Nokia would release a turn by turn navigation app I'd give them a hug.
