3.0 out of 5 stars It's Only a Car Alarm!, 3 Nov. 2014
I have now had extensive use of this item and yes, I do enjoy the positive benefits of the Hornit cycle Horn stated by other customers. But there is a downside...

The Hornit Horns' sound is comparable to that of a 'car alarm' in both sound modes! Now you may think, 'Well that's great. So what's the problem?' The problem, from my experience is, BOTH motorists & pedestrians seem to have become "desensitized" to this type of sound and (I can only presume) associate a car alarm 'sound' to a stationary, parked vehicle and therefore...
==> TAKE NO NOTICE!! <==

A 'deeper' sound, like the Air Zound cycle horn (again, from my experience) would illicit a greater response!

1.0 out of 5 stars AN OPPORTUNITY TO SCAM UNSUSPECTING CUSTOMERS OR A DESIGN FAULT?, 3 April 2009
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Competition Pro Wii Sports Pack - Pink & Blue (Wii)

Competition Pro Wii Sports Pack - Blue (Wii)
Competition Pro Wii Sports Pack - Pink (Wii)

It's funny how you can generally point your TV's remote in the opposite direction of your TV, press a button, and your TV responds! But what happens when something gets in the way of your Wii Remote Controller's infra-red Sensor?

Once I had purchased the Wii Console, I wanted as many accessories as possible to enhance game play for my children. So amongst other accessories, I purchased the Competition Pro Wii Sports Pack in both Blue & Pink. This would (hopefully)prevent fights between my girl & boy who were born 1 year apart. And if they did
decide to use the accessories in battle, the bodily damage would be minimal! For months I never once tried the accessories as they didn't appeal to me. Then one day I saw my son playing tennis with the Wii Remote. So I quickly unpacked the blue Sports Pack and secured the Remote into the Tennis Racket...

ALL PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE:

Once the 'Wii Remote Controller's infra-red sensor' is obscured (covered) by any attached accessory that *DOES NOT HAVE A HOLE for the Remotes infra-red sensor to connect to the 'Wii Sensor Bar'* [the one that generally sits by your TV/LCD], then the Wii Remote Controller WILL NOT WORK WITH YOUR Wii CONSOLE!

Accessories that Didn't Work:
(they DON'T have a hole for the Remote Controller's infra-red sensor)

* Tennis Racket
* Golf Club
* Baseball Bat

ACCESSORIES THAT DO WORK:

* STEERING WHEEL
(This provides a 'CLEAR PATH' for the Remote Controller to synchronize (connect) with the Sensor Bar!)

CONCLUSION

So who's at fault here?

Well, One would think that the makers of accessory products would thoroughly test their goods with the product they're made for.

The Nintendo Wii controller DOES work with the Wii Console - as do many other Controllers [I have controllers in black, pink, blue, white/grey to complement accessories such as Competition Pro' Wii Sports Pack, and they ALL work well alone or in conjunction with each other, with the Wii Console].

So is this an opportunity for accessory product makers to relieve us of our well earned cash in exchange for products that DON'T WORK?

If you've read and fully understood this review, then the response below is all I have left to say...
...but you don't have to take my word for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars SILICONE SKIN CASE FOR NINTENDO WII REMOTE CONTROLLER AND NUNCHUK, 1 Dec. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
You have many competitive family members and friends who like to pit their skills against each other, so you invest in a Nintendo Wii. Past experience has taught you that precision and subtlety are not some of these individuals strong points, so you afford additional Wii Controllers & Nunchuks. Predictably you envisage the yet to come arguments and fights over these identical items, and realise to prevent this, they need to be personalised.

The Silicone Skin Case:

' Silicone Skin Cases add that personal touch to both your Wii Controllers & Nunchuks.
' They come in an assortment of colours
' They gently stretch to smugly encase the Wii Controller & Nunchuk
' Non silicone areas provide full use of controls on both the Wii Controller & Nunchuk
' Skins provide a high degree of grip through their non-slip rubberised surface (ribbed in areas requiring additional control) compared to use of Controllers & Nunchuks without them
' Durable, can withstand long periods of use and still provide degree of control as above
' Skins can be removed an washed with soap and warm water
' Some skins provide an additional silicone layer around the front area of the Wii Controller, which acts as a shock absorber.

For a pair of these silicone skins, I suggest you pay [Please Note, this is simply my view as a customer] NO MORE THAN £3.99 (when you see these skins I think you'll agree that the trader may pick these up for pennies, and sell them for pounds). Postage & Packing - no more than £1.99.

So if you're looking for a supplement to provide that personal touch to your Wii Controller & Nunchuk, and to increase your handling during prolonged use, the Silicone Skin Case is the proper kit!

5.0 out of 5 stars AirZound 2 Rechargable Cycle Horn, 1 Nov. 2008
AirZound 2 Rechargable Cycle Horn

If you're a cyclist looking for a horn that connects nicely to your handle bar, is loud enough to hear for both pedestrians and motorist alike, then the AirZound 2 Rechargable Cycle Horn is the one!

When fully charged, this little monster can blast around 120dbs of (what sounds like) sound from a fast approaching vehicle - enough to make any grown man shudder, and then swear after you with the sudden realisation that you're `that cyclist' a few yards down the road he stepped out in front of (or he's yet another pedestrian on his mobile who fails to look before crossing the road)!

An ordinary pump just won't do for this baby. If you want to make the best of the AirZound 2, you'll need a high pressured cycle `Shock' absorber pump [it's small, portable and costs around £34.00 - but worth every penny]. It has a standard car valve connection - the same as the AirZound 2. Although the AirZound 2 instructions recommend the maximum air input as 80psi, during winter months you can actually go up to 120psi. This is at your own risk! And I would strongly recommend you don't go there during hot summer days, as warm air expands and your AirZound 2 will pop as it exceeds the bottles ultimate pressure, thereafter being rendered useless!

AirZound 2 Good Points:

' The actual `horn' is small and unobtrusive.
' You can regulate the sound volume (high/low) by simply turning a small red knob located on the horn's side.
' You can replenish the superior sound quality with regular air via a cycle pump (though would recommend a high pressured `Shock' pump).
' The sound (when the volume regulator is on high) is louder than some car horns!
' The AirZound 2 bottle which contains the pressured air, fits snugly into your water bottle compartment, thus giving many individuals the impression that this is simply what it is - a water bottle (so it's less likely to be stolen)!

Recommendations from my Experience:

' Secure your AirZound 2 horn to your handle bar at around a 45 degree angle. This reduces pressure placed on the top grey front section in front of the red button pressed to activate the horn. This is the weakest part of the AirZound 2.
' When replenishing the air pressure for your AirZound 2, firstly unhook the horn from your handle bar before screwing on your pump valve. As above, this also reduces pressure placed on the top grey front section of the horn, and helps to prevent damage to the AirZound 2 valve threading.
' Don't put too much air in - pump in more than 80psi at your own risk!
' Take your pump with you when out cycling. When cars are in the cycle lane and you start tooting your horn, that air in your AirZound 2 won't last very long!

Follow these basic recommendations above and your AirZound 2 should last for many years.

If you're anything like me and sometimes get breathless during cycling [and no, I'm not unfit..., I'm just getting old!], once you get an AirZound 2, you'll find that cycling is not cycling without it! You'll take great pleasure in tooting that horn and watching the teenage generation [you know how they stay. They stroll into the path of motorists/cyclists as though they own the road] jump to avoid damage to themselves from that 'oncoming vehicle' that's almost upon them. You'll chuckle as you see that motorist swerve to avoid hitting the `car' he/she's about to cut off [call me wicked!]!!

So would I recommend this product to any cyclist out there?

Hell yeah!
