AmazonBasics Wall Charger with One USB Outlet 2.1 &hellip by AmazonBasics

Bad points:

1. I can confirm that it does emit a high pitched whine when on but with no devices attached. The whine is audible from 1-2 feet away so not great if you charge your device overnight on your bedside table.
2. I get a very mild i.e. 'prickly' electrical shock from touching just the outer casing of the micro USB cable (the device cable end). Happens on multiple cables.
3. Ordered a second one on 2nd August and its expected delivery date is 29th Oct-7th Dec! Maybe for the above reasons this unit has been withdrawn? Have now cancelled the order and don't know why it's still being offered on sale with this kind of fulfillment time.

Good points:… Read more
Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3  - In Ear Studio Headphon&hellip by Ultimate Ears

I recently purchased a pair of these (the clear model) after quite a lot of research, to replace an aging pair of Sennheiser MX500's. I listen mainly to indie rock. It took a few days to get the right choice of plugs to fit my ears and I tried the various different ways of wearing them (detailed on their website).

The headphones were very uncomfortable to wear with the broken wire, so I decided to return them for a refund as I don't feel entirely confident that the same problem won't happen… Read more

I bought this Professional Care 5000 TwinPack to replace a single Braun electric toothbrush that was getting old and failing to hold much battery charge. The new twin set works great, and these brushes do a good job. There is one downside - despite having the same model number as the unit I replaced (Type 4729), these new toothbrushes have a single-colour LED charging light that only glows orange during charging - it doesn't change colour when the unit is fully charged. The old brush had a 2-colour LED that indicated when it was fully charged. This is actually quite annoying, especially since a) it has the same model number and b) a full charge cycle takes 12 hours. Hence I deducted one… Read more
