ButterFox Car Charger with Integrated 3in1 Lightning, Micro USB and iPhone 4 Charging Cable - 4FT
ButterFox Car Charger with Integrated 3in1 Lightning, Micro USB and iPhone 4 Charging Cable - 4FT

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightning sync and charge issues, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fine if you don't want to use the lightning charger/ sync.

Started off OK then got the typical sync issues many 3rd party lightning chargers have and then unable to get phone to even charge sometimes and with increasing frequency over time and use so stopped being useful after about 5 weeks. USB and standard iPhone connections were non problem but there are cheaper options if you are effectively writing off the lightning capability of this device

Like many 3rd party lightning chargers this worked for a while and then refused to sync before finally failing completely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. Issues charging. Jail break error with Sky Go etc., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seemed OK but had comparability issues due to these tablets being flagged up as jail broken by Sky and some other streaming services so could not use Sky Go etc.

Issues with charging.

Overall poor quality compared to others of similar price in my opinion.


Britax Prince Group 1 Toddler Car Seat (Black Thunder)
Britax Prince Group 1 Toddler Car Seat (Black Thunder)
Price: £49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great seat for occasional use or small cars., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made as you would expect from Britax and an absolutely brilliant price.

Shame there is no padded head support included on this model but there are cheap aftermarket supports which work well with this product.

Fits securely in our Fiat Seicento (many seats are too big) and also my mum's Mk 2 Corsa, although it does take some effort to get the seat at the correct angle and the belt tight enough to prevent to much latteral movement. Once secured it stays that way though.

Straps are easy enough to adjust with a little patience.

Main downside is that the seat can't be reclined when in-situ and so coupled with the difficulty in getting the seat secured as mentioned his loses the Prince a star in my opinion.

A good seat though at a very good price. Ideal for occasional use and small cars.


Britax Head Support (Black)
Britax Head Support (Black)
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to lower end seats which do not have padded support as standard., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stops slumping and does exactly what it is meant to. Great addition to lower end Britax seats which do not come with a head support as standard.

A great addition to our occasional car seat in my wife's car (greatly improves support when our toddler is sleeping in our Britax Prince car seat).

Contrary to other reviews, the support fits nicely and is quite secure once fastened on properly. The support has slots to feed the straps through as well as an elasticicated band held by a press stud to keep the support in place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eliminates odours effectively but new car smell?! No chance!, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Eliminates odours very well but smell is rather like witch hazel when first sprayed and then wears off altogether quite quickly - certainly does not smell of new car!

Fiat Brava, Bravo, Punto, Tipo, Cinque, Seicento Colour Workshop Manual (Lindsay Porter's Colour Manuals)

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets 3 stars because it does what Haynes doesn't (cover the Fiat 600) bit otherwise disappointing., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good for Seicento owners frustrated by the lack of a Haynes manual for their car but frustration will not be far away for those expecting this to be anywhere near the standard of Haynes!

Does the job on account of my Seicento not having an owners manual but some of the diagrams are poor and the way the manual is organised is not great. There are sections for servicing, bodywork etc and instructions for each job they cover in that section of the book e.g. In servicing there are instructions for changing the oil but the instructions are somewhat cluttered with all of the diagrams/ pictures for all of the cars covered on the same page. It would be so much better if the manual was divided by car as will as the job categories.


Accessotech Motorbike Motorcycle Bicycle Scooter Moped Dust Rain Snow Cover Case Sheet
Accessotech Motorbike Motorcycle Bicycle Scooter Moped Dust Rain Snow Cover Case Sheet

1.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, very poor quality. Not fit for purpose., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to cover a child's buggy in the knowledge from past reviews this is not a high quality product but was still shocked by how flimsy this product is.

The is no tailoring to help make the cover secure or stay in place and I would say that this is not at all suitable for what it is advertised.

Thankfully the product just about suffices to help protect my buggy whilst it is in my shed! Certainly would not use this on anything outdoors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, easy to fit. Excellent product., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to fit on my Mothercare Mickey Mouse stroller and the design looks like it would fit most standard strollers.

Better quality and a better fit than some tailored covers I have come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin. Great for motorway driving., 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says on the tin.

Reasonably well made.

Easy to fit and fits well on both large and small door mirrors (fits both my Insignia and Seicento with no issues).

Only drawback is that to tighten the screws sufficiently on both my cars it has marked the door mirror slightly (only visible if the blind spot mirror is taken back off) but otherwise a great product. - especially for the motorway.
