5.0 out of 5 stars Functional and Lightweight, 25 Jan. 2015
This case is designed specifically for the Go Pro Hero camera range. It consists of a fairly solid, although not waterproof case and a foam insert with cut outs sections for the camera and four accessories. The outer case is well made, I also like the net at the top to store additional accessories, such as cables, memory cards etc.

The foam insert fits the space well and has five slots. The main one is for the camera itself, two are for batteries, a battery pack and an LCD screen.
Overall, a good case for the Go Pro camera, providing you don’t have too many accessories.

These hangers are designed for travelling or household use. They are well made and have a good grip, whilst the rubber end makes them suitable for hanging damp and wet items.

A single hanger will hang light items such as dish clothes etc, whilst two can be used to hang heavier items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for charging on the go, 25 Jan. 2015
In recent years Smartphone’s have become increasingly large and powerful. Unfortunately, the batteries have not kept up and now I am finding that my phone is struggling to make it through the day.

This device provides a solution to that problem, allowing you to charge Smart Phones or other portable devices on the move. Most mobile phone batteries are around the 3000 mAh size and so a 11200 mAh battery should provide around 4 charges. Tablets tend to have larger batteries and so you will get fewer charges.

The Power Bank has a display telling you how much charge remains, two USB ports, one for tablets, the other for phones and a small light. It also comes with a storage bag and a USB to micro USB cable.

The Power Bank takes about 2 hrs to charge and is reasonably compact, about the size of an external hard drive.

Overall, I have been impressed with this device. It is compact and looks good. I like the metal finish on the case. It charges reasonably quickly and is easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, 25 Jan. 2015
This iClever product is designed to connect a phone or mp3 player via an FM transmission to your car radio. It also has a USB port allowing you to charge your device at the same time. I have a 7th Generation iPod classic, a great device but like all iPod classics it does not feature Bluetooth. This makes it difficult to connect to the car radio system. Admittedly I could just use my phone but on longer journeys I appreciate the greater range of music that the storage capacity of the iPod provides.

To connect the iPod classic to a car radio you basically have three options.

1. A jack to jack aux cable, providing you have an aux in port.
2. A Bluetooth transmitter, which plugs into the iPod headphone socket and then transmits the signal via Bluetooth. Obviously you need a car with Bluetooth to make use of this option.
3. Transmit the signal via FM to the car radio.

This device does the third of these, making it compactable with any car which has a cigarette lighter socket and a radio. For older vehicles it may be the only way to connect an iPod or Smartphone to the radio.

The device plugs into the cigarette lighter socket. The connection is solid and features a second USB port for charging a device at the same time as using the transmitter. Next you set the radio and transmitter to the same frequency. This simple to do with the auto-scan function. As long as you don’t retune the two devices will now be effectively ‘paired’ can play music, audio books or listen to a call via the radio speakers.

Overall, a good and relatively inexpensive way to connect a phone or MP3 player device to a car radio if Bluetooth is not available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight with decent sound quality, 18 Jan. 2015
These Soundpeats in ear headphones use Bluetooth to connect the headphones rather than the traditional wired approach. The headphones are lightweight and easy to pair with the Bluetooth device. The headphones are charged via a micro USB (wire but not charger provided) and each charge provides approximately 6-8 hours of listening time.

The sound quality provided is good, especially for Bluetooth headphones. Sound is crisp and clean, with the higher ranges coming through well. Bass is a bit limited, but that is frequently the case with in ear headphones due to the size of the speaker. I have a pair of Sony over ear Bluetooth headphones and with the exception of the base the sound quality is very comparable.

The headphones also feature, volume control, a microphone for calls and a function button, which allows to skip tracks etc.

Overall, these are a good value pair of Bluetooth headphones. The colour and design is great and the sound quality very good for the type of headphones and price paid. In addition they are comfortable to wear and the ear buds fit well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both practical and durable, 18 Jan. 2015
This Fried wallet and phone case is well made and relatively compact. The case and the wallet are in fact two separate entities held together by a magnet.

The phone case is made of black plastic moulded to fit the phone. The case provides a good grip on the phone and in no way hinders the phones operation. It also features cut out slots appropriately placed to allow the camera to function and access to all buttons. However, to make use of the camera you will need to take the phone case out of the wallet.

The wallet features three compartments, one for credit cards, one for tickets or pictures and a long slot to hold notes. When closed the wallet provides protection for the screen of the phone.

Overall, this is a compact phone case with accompanying wallet. The wallet takes up little extra space and does provide room for a credit card or two and cash. However, I personally would struggle to manage with a wallet this small on a day to day basis, but then I do carry a ridiculous amount of stuff. On the other hand for a quick trip to the shops it is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and Functional, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Huskk iphone case and wallet comes packaged in a stylish black box, with the Huskk logo prominently displayed on the front, a real plus if you intend to give it as a present.

The phone case is made of black plastic moulded to fit the phone. At the back is a material finish which provides additional grip for the phone. The case provides a good grip on the phone and in no way hinders the phones operation. It also features cut out slots appropriately placed to allow the camera to function and access to all buttons.

The wallet section is attached directly behind the phone case. It is a leather and nylon construction and consists of two compartments. The first is a large pocket direct behind the phone. This could hold business cards, credit cards or other items of a similar size. The second compartment is a card holder at the rear of the phone. This would hold one credit card, train tickets or similar sized items.

Overall, this is a nice product. The card slots are well located to prevent the screen of the phone being scratched. The phone case is nicely designed and appears both durable and stylish. The wallet is a nice addition, and takes up little additional space. However, I personally would struggle to manage with a wallet this small on a day to day basis, but then I do carry a ridiculous amount of stuff. On the other hand for a quick trip to the shops it is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for paths and driveways, 12 Jan. 2015
This is a fairly compact solar powered spot light. It is designed to be placed in the ground rather than wall mounted. The light is kept in place via a stake and is powered via a solar panel on the top of the device.

The light is not motion sensitive, instead designed to provide illumination through the night. The light appears to be lasting a little longer than the stated 9 hrs at the moment, but the level of illumination is significantly lower after 10 or 11 hours than it was the night before.

The light has two settings, high and low. The low setting give around two feet of illumination, whilst the high about four. The light also appears `whiter' on the high setting, but this could just be due to the increase in brightness. I currently have the light illuminating the path to the garage. The light is ideal for this type of area, too far from a power source to run an electric cable.

I can also testify to the waterproofing of the device. Since it arrived it has rained almost continuously and the light shows no signs of water permeating the case.

Overall, I have been very pleased with the device. It is incredibly simple to use, simply attach the stake and stick into the ground, whilst providing a reasonable level of illumination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, average execution, 26 Dec. 2014
This Hoont device is designed for training and repelling dogs. It also features a small LED flashlight. The device is compact and easy to fit in a pocket. It is made from moulded plastic with the light located at the front. The device is operated via two buttons on the side and a switch mounted on the top for the flashlight.
The device does appear to have some impact on dogs, causing them to slow down or stop. However, I am not convinced what impact it would have on a dog truly determined to bite you. Hopefully, I will never find out.

The one drawback of the device is the poor design of the battery compartment. It is difficult to get the battery in place and the lid of the compartment is difficult to remove and replace. Further the leaflet provided is not 100% clear on what type of battery is required simply stating a 9V battery. A standard square 1604 battery is the required type. This is the most common type of 9V battery but not the only type.

If it were not for the poor design of the battery compartment I would have awarded four stars. However, as the device currently stands I think it is only worth 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, 26 Dec. 2014
This Hoont pest controller is designed to discourage a wide range of pests using a combination of ultrasonic waves, electromagnetism and ionisation. The device also features a night light. The modes are operated via four on/off switches, two on each side of the device. Further, the device appears to be well made, and is simple to operate. Simply plug in, select the mode that you want and leave it. The pest repeller is accompanied by a brief instruction booklet on its usage.

How effective is the device? This is the difficult question. We occasionally have issues with field mice coming into the garage from grassed area behind our house. This mainly occurs at the end of autumn when the weather turns. I have been using the Hoont device for about a week and garage appears to be mice free. To what extent is the Hoont device responsible for this, I simply don’t know. For now I am giving the device the benefit of the doubt. I will update my review in a few months time when I am able to draw better conclusions.
