5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Upgrade, 13 April 2015
IXOS cables are a legend for quality and this is no exception. You can see the difference the moment you plug in and will probably want to discard ever other cable in the house and replace them with these immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Performance, Endurance and Adapability., 13 April 2015
Nephew borrowed this to test it out for me. I did not know he was going on some sort of adventure weekend. Artificial ski slopes as a helmetcam was the first trial. That seemed too easy so he fixed it to the front of the snowboard, his kneepad, his elbow pad, his boot and the speed and crashes looked spectacular.
Dirtbiking next and after a helmetcam trial the handlebars and of course the front forks to catch all the water and mud. Then the last trial he fixed it to the back of the bike " to show the rest of the mob what losers look like". To me they mostly looked like a bone jarring blur.
Offroading in 4x4s was next so obviously it had to be fitted to the front bumper to take full advantage of all the ruts and mud.
The camera took a lot of punishment, was able to be fixed to anything, lasted for ages before the battery gave up and generally excelled.
Next will be a drunken stag night but I do not want to see film of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Sound for Small Money, 11 April 2015
I am baffled as to how Poweradd can produce a quality bass response from such a small enclosure. Another factor is how they manage it at this price.
There would be those who would resent the lack of a line in facility but the amount of items without bluetooth capability shrinks daily.
The orange colour makes me smile and some would resent it; try finding a black version in the garden at dusk when it is not playing.
The ability to answer and speak on the phone while the music is paused is something we all take fro granted by now, so we can consider this a standard feature rather than an exotic optional extra.
A loop fastening for attaching to a belt or backpack is an added bonus reducing the possibility of losing or forgetting it..

5.0 out of 5 stars Gppd Looks and Shock Absorption, 11 April 2015
The mechanism for absorbing shock in this case is similar to the arrangement that made shock-proof wristwatches possible by not allowing mechanical impact pressure to be transmitted to the delicate parts. And similarly the item is simple and cheap to produce so protection comes at a low price.
The gold and black colours are a match for most peoples taste and make the case look much more classy and expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Can't Solder, 10 April 2015
Cheating at soldering when you are unable to solder is easy with this stuff. For four decades I have been told that soldering was easy; if that was true then how come I never managed it after dozens of attempts with several soldering irons?
Anyway I needed some 4pin din to phono connectors and at fifteen quid a pop I decided to make my own. The phono wire inside a short length of heat shrink tubing and popped over then pin then some of this dripped in via a toothpick gave me a connection which was sound when dry.
The content of the tub are in three state when opened. Thin liquid at the tp with thicker consistency lower down and a blob of sludge at the bottom.
This requires stirring to even it out but I found the consistency improved after a couple of days with the lid left off. It then assumes the consistency of single cream and does not run everywhere..
If you can hold the joint together while it sets this is the way to cheat at soldering.

5.0 out of 5 stars DoorBell in Your Pocket., 10 April 2015
This item has learning capabilities which hold no real interest for me as it performs two much more important functions.
I was wondering why people were knocking on the door or tapping the glass when we have a doorbell. It dawned on me that our classy looking black gloss door bell push was invisible on our glossy black pained door
This solves that problem perfectly as you would have to be blind to miss it.
Spring has finally sprung in London so it becomes vital to make a start on the garden before it turns into a jungle. Being behind the back of the house and up to one hundred feet away would. defeat most doorbells but this is loud and clear at that range and I would trust it at twice that distance..
And just small enough to keep in ones pocket while moving around the garden or all three floors of the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Heavy Drain Items., 10 April 2015
I have an Antex battery soldering iron which kills inferior batteries if they actually work at all because the current drain is so large. Some have been drained after two attempts, so the twenty joints I managed with these batteries were a revelation.
I can think of no harder way to show the weakness in a battery than a cordless soldering iron but these passed the test with flying colours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Favourite and Impossible to Lose., 10 April 2015
I judge by observation, not theory. The baby grabs the bear, stares at it from arms length for a few seconds, dummy straight in mouth, takes bear out and looks at it as if it had never been seen before, shakes it and dummy back in mouth.
A walk around any shopping centre will usually produce a dummy on the floor. This is the result of swinging arms and loosening the grip before the age of coordination. A fluffy toy is much easier to grip than the ring of a dummy, and obviously more satisfying for an infant.
I have no statistics for the number of dummies a baby will throw on the floor to be discarded but if I was a manufacturer I would be worried about sales if these cute creatures catch on..

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Worked For Me Before; This Did, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After four decades of attempting to solder with half a dozen different soldering irons and failing I managed for the first time with this. Low temperature solder and an hour getting four connections right that looked as rough as a dogs backside might not seem like a triumph but after all my previous failures it was.Anything less than top quality batteries just leaves a smell of burning was my first discovery, and failure.
Nothing worked for me before; this did

5.0 out of 5 stars Stomach Settled First Time, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these on a whim for the alleged teeth whitening properties. I absent mindedly sucked on one for ten minute while I was doing something else. Without noticing it and inside half an hour the bubbling sensation in my stomach subsided.
One tablet, one result is not much for proof in the long term but I am initially impressed.
