Silva Ranger Compass DA Silva
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
A great compass ideal for walkers who know how to use it. Take reasonably accurate bearings, find your position or find the correct direction. It feels well built, and the rubber bezel is easier to use than other compasses I've had to use.

Why not buy a cheaper version> because on the cheaper ones the needle takes longer to point north when disturbed and they get stuck when held at a slight angle. This one doesn't have that problem.

Tiny negatives: the glow in the dark isn't bright enough to be worth while, and the neck strap is a bit short.

Received two of these as gifts. One worked the other didn't. I'll review the one that worked...

It charges well, even in indirect light on a bright day. I've used mine to charge my Sat Nav, which it did really quickly and still had spare capacity left. On the down side, it only charges items that have a USB charger input, which my phone doesn't have. And the light is tiny, they could have put a few more LED bulbs on it. AS for the "lightning cable" it's just a cable with an integral winder on it.

I feel that it's a good solar cell, and a good battery, but it's the accessories that let it down a bit.

I had seen and loved Spirited Away so I looked into other Japanese films and bought this. I gave spirited away a 5 star and now I think this film just beats it - so another 5 stars!

I wondered if this film inspired Avatar - there are common themes but Princess Mononoke came first. I think it would appeal to anyone who like Avatar, or Lord of the Rings.

A word of warning, I think it should be a 12 cert. rather than a PG. There are some decapitations, and if you show to younger children you'll have to explain what a brothel is!
