RAVPower® Luster 6000mAh Portable Battery Charger (Power Bank, iSmart 2.1A Output, LED Indicator, Flashlight) - Black
Offered by Sunvalleytek-UK
Price: £49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 1 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Charges my S3 mini roughly 2.5/2.75 times with something left over (charging from 15% to 98%) which is not far off what I'd expect given the battery pack is supposed to be 6A with the 'phone's battery being 1500ma (as the portable battery is 6000ma against the 'phones 1500ma after three charges they will have balanced - the battery will no longer be able to 'shove' juice into the phone but if you leave the pack connected the 'phone can still draw from it [one also has to consider manufacturing tolerances and other variables that reduce efficiency]).
Purchased from Sunvalleytek-uk, ordered on a Wednesday, chose super saver free delivery, arrived following Sunday via courier, For £10! So nice to have something inexpensive that does what its supposed to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hunter, really?, 17 Feb. 2015
The image etched on the case is that of a Harrier, a very different aircrat to the Hunter. Someone's going to be upset.

Gold Label - Waterproof Wax x 400gm
Offered by CISSBURY RETAIL
Price: £7.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, easy to apply., 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Returned home to find tub of wax on doorstep (circa 5 deg. C). Wax near odourless so laid full length blotchy wax cotton jacket on dust sheet indoors (cold outside, remember). Used heat gun on 10 inch squares to GENTLY warm fabric until I could feel the surface soften - become a little more oily (it's cotton, it won't instantly shrivel like a synthetic). Applied wax sparingly using dish sponge, passed heat gun over area again (even though appearance was uniform). Did not pre-heat wax. Took just under two hours, jacket looks better than new.
The tub I received is sturdier that that showed in the image, with a screw cap. There's enough left for another twenty or so applications.


HDanywhere IR over HDMI Injector Kit
HDanywhere IR over HDMI Injector Kit
Offered by HD Connectivity
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought to inhibit CEC function - Perfect., 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love it but have no idea of the IR functionality as I bought this solely to get my hands on the HDMI adaptors which feature a switch that gives a CEC/IR option in order to block the CEC aspect (Samsung Anynet+, Sony ARC etc). The problem I had was that the recently added Humax Youview+ box would sometimes play nicely with my smart (albeit with learning difficulties) tv and Sony Blueray but sometimes would spit its dummy and mess everything up (common volume and multiple device power on/off). This could be fixed by completely powering off and restarting in the 'right' sequence but what a faff. Given that I spent a couple of hours bludgeoning my system into submission I don't really have the enthusiasm to test the IR function just for the sake of it.
Ordered on a Friday pm, received following Monday (standard delivery) would have preferred to buy a single HDMI adaptor but there's probably not much of a market for single items as I suppose few people want to nobble CEC, still, very happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but perhaps not truly smart, 5 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as smart as my CTEK XS 3600 which stays permanently hooked up to the toy in the garage cycling through modes but for a third of the cost I'm very pleased with this charger. Given it's output it won't fast-charge a flat battery but that's not what you should be doing anyway (other than in extremis). Has a slow or (relatively) fast charge, maintenance and 6v modes. The book of words says to disconnect when the battery is charged, despite having a maintenance mode, which, I feel, tells you that it's not truly 'smart' hence the four stars. On the other hand, it could merit five stars as it does what anyone can reasonably expect of it at this price (£19.99 delivered since you ask). Unit feels solid, crocodile clips sturdy enough but not as 'nice' as the CTEK, but, £60+ vs £20.

BREAKAWAY USB CABLE LEAD for XBOX 360 WIRED CONTROLLER
BREAKAWAY USB CABLE LEAD for XBOX 360 WIRED CONTROLLER
Offered by GamersGear_Ltd
Price: £3.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to do., 5 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With the passing of my third wireless controller I was left with my prized Halo item as the last man standing. Not wanting it to fall victim to game rage I bought a wired item not realising that they don't all have usb connectors as per both my xbox 360 consoles' (no proprietary controller ports - usb only). Ordered this cable on a Monday, arrived four days later, £1.95 incl delivery. No packaging/branding, you could pay more if you want to.....

Yuzet Blue 3.5m x 5.4m Heavy Duty Waterproof Tarpaulin Ground Sheet Cover
Yuzet Blue 3.5m x 5.4m Heavy Duty Waterproof Tarpaulin Ground Sheet Cover

Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars 12' x 18' 'Tarp' (can anything not canvas be called a tarpaulin?)., 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect for my intended use - waterproof protection over soft car cover ('Maypole', not claimed to be waterproof) in leaky garage.
NOTE, I would not describe this item as heavy-duty I'd suggest it's durable enough for a fortnights' use as a groundsheet whilst camping (providing you're 'in' bare feet) but I wouldn't expect it to survive a winter unscathed if lashed over something in the garden.
As stated above, perfect for my use, it'll last and cost £7.60 all in, was delivered in four days.

A washing machine valve just like any other. Used to replace seized item therefore mounted on existing olive & nut (without problem). Arrived four days after ordering. Why would you want to pay more than £2.49 (inc. del.)?


Opinel Outdoor Trekking Knife - Purple, 7.5 cm
Opinel Outdoor Trekking Knife - Purple, 7.5 cm
Price: £10.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Not too big, not too small, 27 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent, just-about right-sized knife. I also have a no.8 and 9, the 8 you don't need as it feels little larger than the 7 whereas the 9 is significantly larger and could potentially get you into trouble as an illegal carry. The blade is reasonably sharp as supplied and although carbon steel is harder and will hold a (slightly) sharper edge it will stain/corrode without attention. This is effectively all you need unless you're a Ray Mears wannabe.
