OptiMATE SAE USB Charger with USB Adapters (O100 or SAE-101)
OptiMATE SAE USB Charger with USB Adapters (O100 or SAE-101)
Offered by SPORTOURING
Price: £20.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to plug in to your (already pre-installed) SAE socket, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to plug in to your (already pre-installed) SAE socket. Connected to the bar-risers on the motorcycle, is small enough to not get in the way of any equipment already on the bike and the supplied connectors are a welcome addition (mini and micro USB cables as well as an extension cable).

Good sealing on the cable connections makes the device water resistant although a massive downpour may get the better of it.

I use an iphone 5s (lightning port) with the ultimate add-ons hard case for maps and navigation when needed and the supplied cables do not fit through the gap in the case as I had hoped to just be able to use a micro usb to lightning port converter. I have had to use a standard lightning port cable and fit a small piece of rubber tubing around the usb end so it forms a seal with the female port and wont let water in. A little bit of a botch job but it seems to do the trick.

Overall a lovely and easy to use piece of kit, I just wish apple would conform to standard an use micro usb like everyone else out there... oh well, cant have it both ways!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed and perfectly fitting, 15 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully designed and perfectly fitting. The white plastic back of the case has a nice design logo and also a semi rubber strip to stop the case from sliding whilst flat. The integrated flip cover for the front has a magnetic strip so unlocks the ipad on opening.
Very light and adds to the look of the ipad even though it covers most of it up.
The only negative thing i would say is that the screen cover, although it folds up to create a stand for different viewing angles, it folds in such a way that the inside of the cover is in contact with the surface you are resting it on. This then poses the possibility of it picking some debris and scratching the screen. Just be aware of this and give it a wipe before closing.
Otherwise an excellent case/cover.


BikeCONSOLE Waterproof Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 / Note 2 / Note (5.5" Screens) with RAM Motorcycle Mount Adaptor
BikeCONSOLE Waterproof Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 / Note 2 / Note (5.5" Screens) with RAM Motorcycle Mount Adaptor
Offered by Buybits Addons
Price: £44.99

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit mis-sold. Not really for the Galaxy Note 3..., 1 Aug 2014
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 only just fits in, and don't even think about being able to use the attached power and earphone connectors at the same time - if at all... should not be advertised to work with such a large phone as it turns into just a big case and you lose the benefits of USP which were the included and integrated cables.
Basically, the phone's 3.5mm earphone jack sits at the top of the phone whilst the power socket sits at the bottom... as the phone only just about fits into the case itself, to have 2 protruding cables at the top and bottom makes it unusable.

Case gets 2 stars as it is sturdy and well made and will protect the phone in a fall.

5.0 out of 5 stars clean,simple, great, 1 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awesome - simply awesome - for a bit of plastic to be this good...and for me to get so excited about it - only due to the fact that I've had some crap ones in my time... fits in with the style of the phone, see through at the back, nicely padded bumpers around the edges that do not detract from the look of the iphone. Easy to remove and put on, but will not just fall off when dropped.
And.... its bloody cheap as well compared to what else is out there. Best bumper for lowest price

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 1 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ram mounted iphone 5s case. Very well constructed, touch screen works through the see through plastic cover (but not with gloves on), holds the phone very securely using 2 clip locks on the side. Inside is padded so you wont scratch the back of the phone and all physical phone buttons are accessible when in the case.
Only thing i would recommend is that you put a protective screen cover on the iphone before using this product just in case a bit of grit does get into the casing to prevent any unwanted scratches.
Overall a great product and very sturdy - only a pit they don't include the attachment arm to attach it to the ball socket on your bike - oh well... minor quibble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and easy customisation, 29 July 2014
Beautifully fitting design (one design of many available). Covers all aspects of the PS4 including front and side panels. Easy to apply and removes with no trace of residue. Package comes with 2 versions of the main design based on how you have your PS4 set up (ie standing or lying down) so the design is always facing the correct direction.

Package included an application card to roll out creases, an anti dust wipe to get rid of dirt, and it was packaged very nicely with bubble wrap in a solid cardboard sleeve so there were no curled corners or crease marks.

If you want to customise your PS4, this is the way to go without buying all the special editions that sony release...

3.0 out of 5 stars A sub-par GTA with all the rubbish bits from Assassins Creed thrown in..., 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watch Dogs (PS4) (Video Game)
So - what to say that hasn't been said before... ehm. Not much.
It's ok. Its a fairly pretty game, gameplay is standard sandbox fare with the hook of hacking into things.
Hacking is a novel tool at first but quickly gets annoying and distracting when all you see is the city's population broken down into who they are and what they've done previously... good at first but gets boring.

Pros:
Fairly decent graphics - city is well realised and is busy
Side missions provide good distraction
Hacking (at first) is cool
Lowering and raising bridges and bollards to aid your escape, changing traffic lights, and controlling the skytrains are all cool at first but there doesnt seem to be a learning curve with them.

Cons:
Driving
Driving
Repetition
No ability for hand to hand combat outside of scripted battles or when you're supposed to
Stealth/Eves-dropping missions
Dont really care about the character who is presented as a hero but is about as heroic as a fat Steven Segal - also very morally ambiguous... and this isnt really dealt with in the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy Return to Wolfenstein...Aufwiedersehen!, 24 July 2014
Love it. Single player game, lots of things to shoot, brain off - control pad in hand - let's go nuts.
Been a while since the single player game has had any love in the FPS world and the story just continues the Wolfenstein arc from all those years ago. Graphics are great although my review loses its final star due to sometimes craggy draw distances and the blurring effect used for distant models - takes me out of the moment sometimes and a bit annoying.

Game-play is as you'd expect: run, gun, stealth, knife, kaboom... Nice progression arc unlocking new abilities by performing in-game kill types etc (these include knife throwing for ranged stealth kills, silencers for pistols, faster health regeneration and so on). Ability to change the difficulty mid game should you feel you are getting pounded too much - although on the 2nd hardest setting it isnt really that difficult!

Action very rarely lets up and you need to make a pretty harsh call early in the game which affects the story arc - so plenty of re-playability for when you choose the other arc.

It is cartoon violence, but sometimes can be pretty brutal especially when things are shown up close, and even when they are not shown on screen (you'll know what I mean when you get to it).

Favourite part of the game so far? Going toe to toe with crazed commanders as you try and stab each other to death - hilarious yet ridiculously violent at the same time. And a final word? Panzerhund... only in Wolfenstein!


Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (PS Vita)
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (PS Vita)
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good companion game to the Arkham Series, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A 2d platformer in 3d clothes, this is a fun game which, if played through properly and with attention can be very rewarding. I will agree with some other reviewers that it can be a little difficult sometimes to know where to go next, but that is half the fun as you upgrade Bats's accessories and weapons allowing you more access to the levels which would not have been previously accessible (the Gel explosive for example to blast through walls and find Wayne Tech upgrades).
The general gameplay consists of running around Blackgate in 4 separate areas in order to save people, restart power supplies, pick up useful objects, and generally stop the Joker, Penguin and Black Mask. The combat system is a la Arkham series with flo-mo action enabling you to combine combinations together with some of the harder thugs requiring a little more tactical thought. The grapple gun is in place but as this is not really a free roam game, your use of it is restricted to where you NEED to go rather than using it as a tactical advantage to get away from things or survey the landscape. It's basically an elaborate jump button.
The detective mode of the game is fun but I did find myself using it all the time so as not to miss the clues left around the maps to unlock extras such as artwork.
There is a good upgrade progression as long as you take your time to find the Wayne Tech boxes containing weapons and suit upgrades and the enemies are thrown at you in good proportion (although I feel there could have been a few more).
Boss battles are fun, but you will need to play them a couple of times until you figure out how to beat them.
All-in-all a decent solid actioner which will last several solid hours of gameplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand-Alone or PS4 Companion Piece, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's pretty much all been said before - a great piece of kit at the right price. Touch screen is responsive, thumb sticks are well positioned (although for people with slightly bigger hands maybe get the handle cradle accessory as I did). the touch pad on the back is responsive however as a replacement for R2 and L2 triggers if playing PS4 games over the wi-fi link, it still needs a bit of work.
The screen is crystal clear and glare is minimal.
Nice user interface with customisable Wallpaper and ability to group icons and move them on to different screens.
Link to PS4 is solid and remote play is very responsive (can be used as a second controller as well).
All-in-all a solid package and the PS4 connectivity is what turns this into more than just a handheld gaming console.
