Panasonic CR-2032 Lithium Coin Battery - Twelve Pack
Panasonic CR-2032 Lithium Coin Battery - Twelve Pack
Offered by Babz Media
Price: £2.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever had a coin cell run out? Miles from anywhere? This is THE solution!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If like me you never remember to replace or even carry spare coin cells because (a) they last so long, and (b) the packaging is so gross that you need a pick-up truck, or so flimsy that the cell has shorted out long ago. These Panasonic cells are individually encapsulated onto tough perforated card measuring 4x5 cm. Slip one into wallet or purse, put one in your PC case for your motherboard, slip them in your cutlery drawer (for scales, thermometers and a host of other tasks) and, of course, slip one or two into your Kindle case for your clip-on reading light!

Buying these cells in 'bulk' cards means you get a really keen price, so I would recommend these cells and seller.

I have the 2032 style, but there are others in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Pen/Pencil Holder for Your Desktop!, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clear Acrylic Pencil Holder
This chunky and heavy sparkling-clear acrylic pencil cup is very good. It stands some 10cm (4") approx and is 9cm by 6 cm approx in width and depth. This means it is very difficult to tip it over when grabbing for that pencil. It does mean, however, that short pencils can be difficult to extract as they are below the rim. But hey! That's not what this piece is about! There are nice scalloped and bevelled edges, "turret-type" ends - all this makes the humble pencil case almost a piece of modern sculpture! At the price you cannot beat it. I understand that Tennessee also have other desktop items with very similar design lines - check 'em out! :)


Philips Travel Shaver with Twin Rotary Heads and Travel Pouch PQ203/17
Philips Travel Shaver with Twin Rotary Heads and Travel Pouch PQ203/17
Price: £14.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery Powered Rotary Shaver from Philips? Yes Please!, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this battery shaver as I use its 'big brother' on a daily basis and I wished for something to give me a close shave on my frequent stays in hospital. The shaver is a dinky little thing packed into a semi-hard zipped clam-shell. Having only 2 heads, it takes a little care in travelling (!) around your face, but you soon get used to it. The shave is fully adequate and comparable to its bigger 3-head brothers, even though you do not get the "lift and cut" complexity. But hey! You're on holiday/hospital/? and you probably don't *really* need the 'extra close' shave, unless one is with special company. At these times, nothing beats the shave from an open razor! Just a note, fellas, hospital nurses will confiscate your open razor and look upon you as a "crazed lunatic"! Leave it at home and take this little gizmo instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Battery Version of Oral B's Brilliant Toothbrush!, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this battery-powered toothbrush to pack into my "hospital case" for my too-often stays in hospital. It saves packing extra chargers or trying to find a manual toothbrush because the NiNiMH is flat. It works exactly the same, except doesn't "buzz" every 30 seconds. Not really a problem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy, buy, buy! Dimple are discontinuing this rad, so you could get a bargain!, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This rad replaces one that lasted for 5 years (at 20% load using Dimplex controller). It has a very nice powder coat white colour, fits easily in my just-finished wet room. It completes the suite and 'mirrors' my shower chair and WC arm rails. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent design classic!!!, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This phone is sooo good, I mean really sick! It's heavy (so doesn't fall off the bedside table), receiver sits naturally in hand between mouth and ear (unlike the micro mobiles!) and has a delicious ring tone! The cream colour is again spot-on: a nice retor look with a push-button dial cunningly superposed onto the rotary dial base! Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always good value for a gift!, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my in-law-sis' parents. Always nice to have as you get to select your desire - no more trudging to the store and trying to swap when you've got no receipt! Also, you can time redemption for a "special" in your desired tastes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brill!, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap to buy, but robust (daily use for quite a while now). Easy to add names/numbers, but follow instructions so you don't bend page hinge "pins". Tip: iron them flat if bent with medium cotton + a squirt of steam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Tapes!, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These tapes are excellent value for money. Delivery was quick and efficiently packed. Importantly - *no* duff tapes, completely successful when 'ripping' Sky+ hard drive James Bond films to tape to free up space. Easily handles approx "521p" type resolution provided by the Sky+ box.
