5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Gem, 22 July 2014
I had very low expectations from the size and weight of the packing. When opened there was this tiny little cube which could not possibly produce any volume or quality of sound. Except it can and does. Already with sufficient charge to run for a couple of hours and a system setup so simple and immediate it was up and running immediately. The quality and volume was startling and seemed to appear from nowhere. There is a small lanyard to be attached which is a good idea as this little gem is small enough to get lost if it is not switched on and producing sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shirt Pocket Power Pack, 22 July 2014
Small enough for a shirt pocket and with enough power to recharge anything this is an impressive little item.I tried it on the usual items but it really came into its own on an odd occasion. My doctor does not know what a shambles his waiting room and receptionists are running and thinks I exaggerate when I complain. I use one of those cameras disguised as a pen in my shirt pocket to record the shennanigans but the battery runs out too soon. With this in my top pocket recharging the spypen I will be able to show that doctors receptionists see the main aim of their job is to prevent patients from seeing their doctor.
The capabilities of this little charger with its usb connectors are so numerous it would be easier to list what it can't do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight, Quick, Comfortable and Adjustable, 16 July 2014
One tree and one drainpipe and five minutes later I am lounging comfortably. The sun shifted so I made one end slacker and the other end shorter. This is easy because of the amount of slack there is to play with. the thing weighs nothing, fits into a tiny bag and can be taken down or assembled in mere minutes. Because hammocks by design mould themselves to the shape of your body the possibility of them being uncomfortable is highly unlikely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Miraculous etc., 16 July 2014
I would just as soon eat nuclear waste as practise yoga and the beach is a source of torture for me so why these towels? I have occasionally to take medicine which produces night sweats. I know beforehand so i am in the habit of sleeping on a beach towel. This feels like sleeping on sandpaper even though they have never been near a beach. These towels feel like sleeping on velvet, they are that soft. The next morning they get a quick rinse in the shower, get thrown over the side of the shower and by nighttime they are bone dry. I dont know the technical explanation for that and could care less; they work brilliantly

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny Size, Massive Sound, 16 July 2014
The instructions on this item are a bit small and complex.The buttons all have more than one fuction which have to be learned when using the phone to make or receive calls.I find it difficult to manage the phone functions because I need two pairs of glasses to do anything but persons with average eyesight should be able to manage ok
The bluetooth connection occurs easily and has a reasonable range.
A micro sd card just slots straight in and the backwards and forwards button selects the tracks but it actually starts playing on insertion.
Straightfroward connection via 3.5 mm jack is the most immediate and most satsfying and the ammount of bass produced from such a tiny unit is astounding. i always connect to my laptop to test the sound as the inbuilt speakers are absolute rubbish but it is where I store most of my music.The sound was impressive for something ten times this size and has to be heard to be believed. Usb charging in a couple of hours and a good few hours of listening on each charge.
If I retailed laptops, tablets or smartphones I would have one of these permanently on display to make the items on sale sound alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Get You Out Of Trouble, 16 July 2014
hammering a device all day and ending up on a train with stuff left to do is where this item comes into its own. With connectors able to power anything and a heavy charge capacity this will be the solution to a power problem that will allow you to keep working untill you can get to a mains outlet.
With a keyring and about the same weight and size as a bar of Yorkie chocolate and cool looks this item is a must have and goes with me everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start., 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good start for the subject but slightly outdated. Most of the manufacturers, even the minor ones cited here are considered scarce by todays standards and having so many marked examples illustrated here is a great help.
There is a great deal of snobbery about moulded glass among glass collectors but a gentle reminder that Lalique is just moulded with a great deal of superior finishing usually puts thing in perspective. The byword for moulded glass was affordability but cheaper imports tolled the deathknell in a short time.
Hardly any of the examples pictured here would be easy to find these days, though saying that, although I do not collect the stuff and have little interest in it I found two examples I have were illustrated here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small But Full, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ceramics Book (Paperback)
I was initially disappointed with a pocket sized book but it is brimming over with content. Another reservation I had would be how much would be a tribute to Leech, Cardew, Rie etc but there is precious little evidence of their existence here let alone homages to them.
I have been a dealer in antique ceramics for decades and have little interest in modern ceramics so I had little interest in the contents of this book before I owned it. . This little book is a delight;although I know nothing of the criteria required for selection in this book the choices are amazing. I especially love the amount of humour shown in ceramic form and wonder whether it is a British thing. Over three hundred and fifty pages of colour, albeit in small format make a pleasant guide to recent ceramic artists

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Stars, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Too many "Star Lots" from specialist auctions showing the absolute cream of the title. None of the items would be available to a collector as they would, or do, grace a dedicated museum. for a general feeling or zeitgeist primer, the book would be difficult to surpass.Tiffany, Lalique, six pieces of Stickley furniture show how exotic the selection of plates are.
I would have liked a few of the photos to be more "vin ordinaire" but this book os for ogling, not a guide to collecting. A good production , enjoyable, but with negligible application.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Sockets + Lead is Winning Combination, 14 July 2014
Having three lighter and two usb sockets is a grat combination but to add a lead for total flexibility is the masterstroke with this design. No strain or weight on the lighter socket dangling from the dashboard and five options for charging seem more than generous. Solid construction plus springs that are positive so the plug wont flap around in the dash leading to bad or intermittent contact is a bonus.
