[Official Shop] BXT Colourful Ultra Slim 2000mAh E&hellip by BXT

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 15 Aug 2014
I bought this to replace a very similar phone case (the outside of it had cracked in 25C-26C heat, I hope this one doesn't!). First thing to say is that the case I was sent was 1900mAh, not 2000mAh as described. I don't know if this is standard or due to a slightly unscrupulous third-party seller. I decided 100mAh wasn't a big enough difference to complain over or return the case.

This is a decent case that fits an iPhone 4/4S very well, and provides probably around 60% of a full charge for my phone. Other people may get more as my phone is a couple of years old and the battery not quite as efficient as it once was. One minor problem is that although there is a hole around the… Read more

Despite the big drum, it is apparently energy efficient compared to other similar dryers, with a B rating opposed to the usual C (I'm taking Beko's word for this!). The power is 2700 Watts. You have the option of connecting the drain hose to your waste pipe or emptying the 4.8 litre capacity water tank regularly. Being a condensing tumble dryer not needing necessarily to be connected to any plumbing was ideal for me as it meant I… Read more
Master Class Double Oven Glove RED, Silicone by Master Class
I've had many substandard oven gloves over the years that were not fit for purpose. You would think that being somewhat heat proof would be a useful property for oven gloves to have but it is amazing how many are not! That certainly isn't a problem with these Master Class double oven gloves. You can stand there holding a cast iron casserole fresh from the oven and not begin to feel any noticeable heat for a considerable time. I found the silicone to be a little stiff at first, which wasn't a problem, then gradually becoming more flexible. There is a 100% cotton lining inside each glove, which gives a nice feel.

If you extend the gloves out, they stretch 95cm from tip to tip, with… Read more
