In My Own Words:
Work in adult education, mostly as an e-tutor in Maths. I love the job and also the fact that I work from home.

I would rather post a good review than a bad one, but I do believe in honesty.

I keep saying I don't like sci-fi, but I adore Terry Pratchett's work.

I used to say I didn't like folk music... then I opened my ears and now there's nothing else that I'd rather listen to. I do not e… Read more

Wish I had more time to read and listen to music, love watching sports as well - particularly horse racing and athletics.
Not a great film buff, was a sit-com addict in the days when we had great sit-coms. Sometimes go a day or two without watching … Read more

1Byone Easy Chime UK Plug-In Wireless Doorbell Doo&hellip by 1Byone
This plug-in doorbell was very simple and straightforward to set up - all was done in five minutes.

Unlike wireless free-standing units you don't have to supply the batteries for the receiver; the mains plug function makes this an ideal purchase if you are worried about batteries running down without you noticing.

I found that I had to use it on a socket tower extension as the majority of my spare sockets are very close to the floor. The receiver unit is slightly larger than a pack of cards and couldn't be fitted into the floor level sockets.

There is a CR302 lithium button battery supplied for the bell push unit. Opening the bell push unit to fit the… Read more
[Apple MFI Certified] 1Byone Lightning to USB Cabl&hellip by 1Byone
Anyone who has owned an iPhone or iPad for some time will know that wear and tear to the charging cable is a particular problem with these as they age. Typically the cables show the greatest wear at the lightning end of the cable, they seem to crack just above the joint.

Replacement 'official' Apple products are not cheap. There are also a lot of allegedly genuine products out there at ridiculously cheap prices that don't work.

This cable is well made, fully compatible and looks as if it will last every bit as long as the cables supplied. No 'not genuine' messages when not plugged in.

The 1byone cable is actually slightly easier to use as the lightning… Read more
Vinsic Tulip 3200mAh Power Bank, External Mobile B&hellip by Vinsic-PB
Disclaimer: I received this product free to review, this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

This Vinsic power bank charger is visually very attractive, mine came in a pinkish-red finish of an aluminium brushed metal case. It's the same size as a small tube of boiled sweets or dextrose tablets; about half as large again as a lipstick.

No instructions are supplied but it isn't difficult to work out what to do - this is the sequence.

A USB cable is supplied to initially charge the Vinsic device. The cable connects to the Vinsic charger via a mini USB.
To charge your iPhone, iPad etc from the Vinsic charger, you will need to use your own charging cable… Read more
