5.0 out of 5 stars Small On Price, Big On Options., 26 Aug 2014
The significant detail here uis the nice heavy cable which means there wont be any overheating that thin cables suffer from. There is overload and overheating protectuon which is useful with three or four items being charged at the same time.
There are sticky pads on the back which allow the item to be stuck to the dashboard, but I prefer th items to be out of sight on the floor of thecar when there is no passenger.
The adapter lights up as soon as the plug is in the socket so you know the power is on and three more lighter sockets plus a usb sockets should be more than you would ever need even with satnav and phone charger connected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Real Imperial - Not the Most Accurate., 25 Aug 2014
These actually have Imperial measurements which means 1/32 of an inch,Not 1/100 of an inch etc, Not very accurate but would suit most engineering tasks requiring approximate measurements prior to a final a metric check

5.0 out of 5 stars Largest Sound for the Smallest Price., 25 Aug 2014
This speaker has to produce the largest sound for the smallest price. The bluetooth connected immediately to my nephews ipad and music was blasting out loud and clear. A few hours later it was connected to my Samsung Galaxy with the same performance, After I got bored with music I connected it to my phone and waited for a phone call. I find my phone is still to quiet for me because my hearing is not what it was; here is the solution to that problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars One Star Too Generous., 25 Aug 2014
This is a waste of money as it does nothing. I went to the site to download the latest software and the sponsors of the site had a query asking if anyone knew a link to a working download. Pathetic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Backup Toothbrush, 25 Aug 2014
I found this slightly better than a manual tothbrush but less effective than a Braun ral B. Obviosly at a fraction of the price it should perform nowhere near as well but it is a good backup for when the oral B needs charging overnight.


Understanding Miniature British Pottery and Porcelain: 1730-Present Day
Understanding Miniature British Pottery and Porcelain: 1730-Present Day
by Maurice Milbourn
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 13.19

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Small Format and Lack of Colour., 24 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author is careful to define the subject; not childrens and not dolls china.
I am disappointed at the small format as a larger book would have allowed all the items to be shown lifesize which does not seem much to ask given the subject matter.
Only fifteen colour plates and two hundred black and white seems mean especially given the intricacies of some of the pattern which end up looking like a small grey blur. Most of the items could be covered up with a matchbox so the details are lost for research purposes.
As a general gide to factories and shapes it is quite good and I imagine a collector of miniature china would be glad of the book but this format is one of the most disappointing publications the Antique Collectors Club has ever issued.


Llestri Cymreig/Welsh Pottery (Cyfres Cip Ar Gymru / Wonder Wales)
Llestri Cymreig/Welsh Pottery (Cyfres Cip Ar Gymru / Wonder Wales)
by Chris S. Stephens
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.43

5.0 out of 5 stars Slim,Qaint Item, 24 Aug 2014
I have at least twelve books on Welsh ceramics but this is the oddest. It is bilingual in welsh and english, and why not as its primary purpose is a guide to a specific collection. of items of welsh interest rather than just welsh manufacture. There are a few stafforshire flatbacks of welsh personages plus a wels souvenir jug manufactured in Germany.
There seems to be a preponderance for transfer printed especially temperance and morality subjects. One example is 'the death of Eva' from Uncle Toms Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Apparently she visited england to garner support for anti slaver and temperance. She was a bit late for the first and deluded for the second.
There is quite a lot of items that could be mistaken for staffordshire or even scottish wares, especially the mocha and sponged items.
Then there is the 'gaudy welsh' problem. The items shown here were all probably produced in Wales but the genre mostly embraces items made in staffordshire.
Al in all this is a nice little item adding slightly to the knowledge of welsh china

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile and Mobile Enough To Cure Annoyances, 24 Aug 2014
I keep moving the transmitter according to purpose. I have a camera set up for watching the foxes but I found four hours of nothing annoying if I left the camera switched on instead of using this as a warning system to save time.
Then there were the dodgy builders next door. I made sure they saw me installing this on the wall and there wes no more trespassing in my garden.
And I moved it again for the purpose of catching the particular postman who left the gate open but does not any more..
And the dog that urinates against the gatepost every day has found a new toilet since I have this.


Shelley Potteries: The History and Production of a Staffordshire Family of Potters
Shelley Potteries: The History and Production of a Staffordshire Family of Potters
by Chris Watkins
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars good Text, Needs More Colour, 24 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a book of one hundred and seventy is h pages there are seventy monochrome plates and only sixteen pages of colour. I am not a Shelley fan but the wares deserve more colour. Too much emphasis on indifferent items and a few colour pages of Mabel Lucie Atwell and Foley Intarsio does not show The best od Shelley. Then there are a few items that could be taken for Moorcroft, a few more resembling wedgwood Fairyland lustre and all could have done with more colour plates.
The history of the factory and various partnerships is covered well and there is adequate material on the artists but overall the book is wanting in colour


Collect British Postmarks: Handbook to British Postal Markings and Their Values
Collect British Postmarks: Handbook to British Postal Markings and Their Values
by Dr J. T. Whitney
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Addition to The Field of Postmarks, 24 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not the only book on postmarks but it covers what some previous books have omitted. A list of numbers that enable you to look up the name of the post office of origin was usful, A list of all the travelling post offices and sorting vans helps a lot but one list stood out. During the first world war all mail from troops was renderd geographically anonymous so that troop movements and emplacements could not be gleaned from intercepted mail. We hav here a seies of numbers which enable the actual regiment of the sender to be identified which must be of great use to a military historian.
There is more, and nearly all have an illustration sufficient to identify the cancellation without any confusion.
Useful for more than just the philatelist and collector of postmarks.
