2.0 out of 5 stars It's a great little gadget, 6 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great little gadget, but I've bought two over the past couple of years, as a fairly flimsy internal structure seems to make bits prone to falling off. I really love what it does, but I wish it was tougher.

5.0 out of 5 stars feels good to the touch and is more scratch-resistant than anything ..., 6 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried several screen protectors. This outshines the rest, as it's ultra-clear, feels good to the touch and is more scratch-resistant than anything I've used previously. No, it doesn't go right to the edge of the phone, but as the iPhone 6 curves at the edges, any screen protector that extended further than this one would no doubt have peeling-off issues.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can get one full recharge (from 7% to 100%) of my iPad mini, plus one full recharge of my iPhone 6 from this battery. It takes about 7 hours for the unit to charge up, which I don't think is excessive. It's small for what it does - just a little larger than my phone - and looks smart too. I feel it's an excellent compromise between size and power output.

Sadly all too effective. Peanut butter is the best bait.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish I could write a review about the actual stories, but I found reading them too stressful: incorrect punctuation and a disregard for something as basic as the paragraph caused me to give up after three pages. I'm really sorry if Richard Wilson reads this, as I'm sure the ideas behind the stories are fine, but this selection is evidence that self-publishing does not always benefit either author or reader. My journey would have to be particularly long before I would risk a second attempt.

5.0 out of 5 stars It looks so large and so much can fit inside ..., 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks so large and so much can fit inside! I was certain that EasyJet would query the size, so I tried it out (twice to make sure) in those airport luggage-measuring-things, and sure enough it fitted. The check-in staff didn't even bat an eyelid. The only thing to watch is the handle: in order to reduce the overall size, the handle fits completely inside the case, the slot being closed with a zip. This slot opens directly into the case's interior, so when it's zipped shut (with the handle inside) all is well. However, when the handle is extended, the zip (obviously) can't fully close, so you have to be sure that items inside the case don't poke out. I've taken this case as hand luggage with BA, Lufthansa, Germanwings and EasyJet.

5.0 out of 5 stars It had to be sturdy, but easy to put together, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted something substantial, but that didn't draw the attention. It had to be sturdy, but easy to put together. About 5 minutes after it arrived, I had the ideal compost box. It sits under a tree in the corner of the garden, and because the treated wood is natural in colour, it blends in perfectly. I have a smallish lawn (15m x 5m) and this box has easily accommodated a whole year's grass clippings along with other garden trimmings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well built and sturdy (what is it about yellow that seems so serious, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well built and sturdy (what is it about yellow that seems so serious?). I was a bit worried about it not having a wooden handle, but it has taken everything I threw at it: clearing old concrete; digging up old roots; making trenches. In fact, it made me feel like a real workman (I kept having to stop for cups of tea).

Another hard week looming in front of the whiteboard? OFSTED in the offing? I'm a teacher, and I can reveal that the advice on this mug is engraved on every teacher's heart, and what's closer to a teacher's heart than a cup of coffee? The smile on the recipient's lips may be a wry one, but it'll be there.
