5.0 out of 5 stars The economics of jam, 28 Aug 2014
My fruit tends to be free. Provided by Nature. For the low pectin fruit (like raspberries or strawberries) I previously had to use pectin sugar at 2 for a kilo bag. Now I use 69p ordinary sugar with the recommended 8g of this pectin. Result is that my jam now costs just under half of what it did before. And there is also the flexibility of using smaller amounts for mid pectin fruit.
I am still in the trial and error stage but after a batch each of raspberry, apricot, plum and strawberry I am pretty confident that I will now get it right just about every time.
I have also discovered that it's best to pre-mix the powder with some or all of the sugar before adding it. That way there… Read more
Hama Extension Cable for Cigarette Lighter, 1.5 m by Hama
This is a pretty good quality extension. A possible problem for some people would be that the male end of the cable is 82mm long (not counting the depressable contact). If your only 12v outlet is near your gear lever this might be a problem. For squeezing into tight spots the minimum clearance (allowing for the cable to exit) is 91mm. I am using this from an outlet in the boot to provide power to the rear seat passengers.
The cable is of an ample gauge to handle the rated 8amps and this means that there are little or no overheating issues or loss of power over the length of the cable.
I have used it to power (simultaneously) 2 iPhones, a satnav and a games machine which together… Read more
Apple iPod Lightning to Micro USB Adapter-ZML  (La&hellip by Apple
The reviews for this item are clearly divided into those pre Spring 2014 and those post Spring 2014. Nealy all the early reviews were poor. Which strongly suggests a poor quality fake. The later reviews are nearly all favourable - so I decided to try it out.
I bought from Mobile Gadgets UK. The delivery was very fast. And the little (it is tiny) adapter simply works.
I'd put the quality of this adapter at around 8/10. I put the genuine thing at 6/10 for quality. And it cost 3 times as much.
That's a no brainer!!!! My recommendation is to buy this using a supplier with a high star rating and do Apple out of their monopolistic profiteering.
