5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coils for an Excellent Tank, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the Herakles Plus tank very much and I prefer these 0.2 Ohm stainless steel coils. I received the 316L 35 to 80W coils as expected and the pack validated as authentic on the Sense website.

These Herakles Plus coils are shorter than the original version 1 Heracles tank coils. I mistakenly bought the version 1 coils but they do not fit Herakles Plus tank. Version 1 coils are too long for the Heracles Plus tank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Herakles Plus Tank, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These coils are longer than the coils used in the Herakles Plus and do not fit the Heracles Plus tank. I didn't realise that there was a difference and so bought the wrong ones. The coils I received were the 0.2 Ohm 30-75W that I was expecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Learning With, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am new to 3D printing and this is the first spool of filament that I have bought. I found that I needed to change the default temperatures that worked with the sample supplied with my printer and I am currently using a hot end temperature to 210°C and the hotbed to 65°C on my Wanhao i3 printer.

Initially I found that the filament would crackle when printing but this has got less frequent as I have gone down the spool. I have had no issues with the filament itself. For my purpose of learning about 3D printing this filament is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Way to Start 3D Printing, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first 3D printer. I had it printing within an hour of taking it out of the box and that was because I had to make space to place the printer. The printer comes in three parts all of which are joined by cables so care needs to be taken when unboxing the machine. Two of the parts need to be bolted together. There is also a filament spool holder that needs to be bolted to the printer. The printer comes with a sample of PLA filament that is more than enough to print the sample GCODE file that comes on the supplied microSD card. I would recommend buying a spool of PLA filament at the same time as the printer because the supplied sample will only print two or three small items. There is no need to buy any blue painters tape as the print bed already has a surface design to print on.

The version of the Wanhao i3 printer I got at the beginning of May 2016 is the i3 version 2.0. There has very recently been released an updated version of this printer which is the version 2.1. The nice thing about these open source printers is that the user of a version 2.0 machine can do the same modifications to upgrade to the equivalent of a version 2.1 machine. The majority of the changes are very subtle such as rounded corners on the print bed and the butterfly screws used to adjust the print bed have been replaced by circular nuts. The Thingiverse website has a lot of modifications freely available that can be downloaded then printed by the Wanhao i3 printer to upgrade the machine such as the wheel nuts for the print bed. These are not essential but slight improvements. One thing about doing modifications to the machine is that by doing them you learn more about it.

The supplied microSD card also contains a Windows version of Cura software which is used to convert 3D STL files into the GCODE needed by the printer to print the objects. The Wanhao website also has a free OSX version of the software.

There are many videos on YouTube showing how to modify and set up the Wanhao i3 Duplicator. There is also a very good Google Groups site with lots of help and information. One thing about 3D printing is that time needs to be given to learn how to get the best out of the machine and how to adjust it to get the best quality prints.

I am very pleased to have purchased this printer. At times it can be very frustrating trying to get the settings in Cura right to print an object but it is also very rewarding when the print comes out how you want it. I do feel that you need to be willing to learn and willing to keep trying to get the best out of this machine. In that, it can be very greedy of time. It is not like sending a file to an modern paper printer where you click the button then pick up the print out. With a 3D printer you need to learn how to adjust the machine and the software settings to get a successful output. That said it's amazing what such an inexpensive printer can produce. If you're wanting to get into the world of 3D printing, this is excellent machine to get started with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Flavour and Clouds, 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm using these coils with the Micro TFV4 tank that came with Micro One Starter Kit. I get much better flavour from these 0.3 Ohm Clapton coils than the 0.25 Ohm stainless steel coils. The pack of five coils that I received, sold by DC Vapes, validated as authentic on the Smoktech site.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best Value, 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This German packet of Euro 2016 stickers contains the exact same stickers as in UK packs with a very similar spread selection of player stickers. I bought two of the blister packs. Each blister pack contains 16 packets for a total of 80 stickers per blister pack. The breakdown of stickers that I got are from pack one: 1 logo sticker, 5 shiny stickers, 3 action stickers, 15 two-player stickers and 56 player portrait stickers. The second blister pack contained 2 logo stickers, 1 shiny sticker, 3 action stickers, 14 two-player stickers and 60 player portrait stickers. This was a particularly disappointing pack with having only one shiny sticker out of 80 stickers. I would normally expect to get at least two shinies out of such a pack.

I wondered whether these German packs would give a different variation of stickers from the UK packs but found that this is not the case, both are very similar.

Given the current pricing I feel that the 15 packet UK tins, which include a metal storage tin and cost less than the face value of the sticker packet content, are a much better value than these German blister packs which offer no discount over the price of stickers packets bought individually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Tin To Store Swap, 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got two tins sold by Amazon, each tin had 15 sticker packets inside. The breakdown of stickers that I had are from tin one: zero logo stickers, 2 shiny stickers, 2 action stickers, 15 two player stickers and the rest, 56 players portrait stickers. The second tin had: 3 logo stickers, 2 shiny stickers, 3 action stickers, 12 two player stickers, and the rest 55 player portrait stickers. Neither tin had any swaps from the packets contained within each tin.

The tins have a hinged lid and can accommodate two stacks of stickers once the stickers have been removed from the packs. A tin can store several hundred swap stickers. I found this a good value way of getting a booster set of packs with the advantage of having a useful tin to store swaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got, Got, Still Need, 13 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box is only small but it contains 100 individual packs, each pack contains 5 stickers. The box is sealed with a holographic, Euro 2016 official licensed product sticker. The box I had contained 100 swaps in total, 81 two-player stickers, 15 action stickers, 19 shinies and 5 Euro logo stickers. The rest were made up of player portrait stickers. It is luck of the draw how many swaps you get. There are 680 stickers in the complete collection, so this box will not give you every sticker, even without swaps. On the back of the shiny stickers are codes to get extra online packs for the Panini online sticker album which can also be played by a mobile app. This seems a good way to start the collection, now all I have to do is stick them in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, Useful Selection Of Tips, 16 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stronger than I was expecting, they have a good hand weight about them, not light and flimsy, but comfortable and solid. They are not heavy. They look and feel of a better quality than I was expecting with no sharp edges. There is a nice light spring to the tweezer motion with a clean ring from the metal when the tips tap together. All the tweezers come with a plastic safety cap that completely covers the tip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable In The Hand, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well made and nicely finished portioner scoop. There are no sharp edges or seams. It is not heavy in weight nor heavy to squeeze. The scoop is the standard silver colour of stainless steel. The flexible, plastic material of the handle is a 'U' shape not the 'Y' shape illustrated. The operation is smooth and works with either a thumb press or a palm press. I have uploaded a photo of the one I got to show the different handle and steel colour.
