I don't often make bad buying decisions but this definitely counts as one.

Despite what you might believe by reading the product name it's not made by TeckNet - it's an import which they can't even be bothered to repackage. It's called and Allkit, there's no information about who actually makes it (it's made in China, of course) so you don't know if it's CE stamp is real and the instructions are in appallingly translated English that is barely comprehensible.

The vendor doesn't bother to send you a dispatch notice to let you know it's on it's way, which is only slightly useful so you know when to have to be in to accept it from the post man.

The grips don't, the sliding supports to hold the bottom of the iPhone up let it just slide off and the only things holding your iPhone to the device are the connector at the bottom, which only supplies power, and the audio 3.5mm cable to connect the earphone socket to a socket on the side of the transmitter. Pathetic.

Cheap, yes, cheerful, no - with the P&P on top of the cost of this it's a waste of £17.48. I'll be buying a Griffin product now - at least they're built properly.

Bought this for my new 3G iPhone and mentioned it to a friend who has a first gen iPhone so got him one too. Both phones work with this no problems. So down to the review - Good points: You will be amazed at how good this is especially for the money! For the price it is worth it just to have something that will charge your phone in the car and hold your phone, but this does way more! The handsfree part is just that - If you are listening to music through your car speakers using the FM transmitter and a call comes in it will fade the music and let you answer handsfree just like a kit that would normally cost 5 times this amount! Build quality is pretty good and it does what it says on the pack. Bad points: not many! The little plastic holders that stop the phone sliding off the holder seem a bit fragile. The unit emits the odd beeping sound now and then when listening to music? Sound quality is average. The flexible neck works well in some cars and not so good in others - lucky dip I'm afraid! Overall worth a gamble at this price!

I am very happy I bought this product. I was very skeptical about purchasing one of the iPod FM Transmitters but this slick piece of hardware is well worth it. It was very easy to setup and get working. I don't have any issues driving to and from work (60 minutes 1 way) with static from nearby station frequencies. The holder for the iPod and the connector into the jack are sturdy and won't come free easily which is nice

I don't usually write reviews, but I was so pleased with this product that I had to do it. I have owned several FM transmitters (Griffin, Belkin) and always found them to be very annoying with having to change channels constantly. With this one I drove all the way across Manchester and never changed the channel once. Moreover, the holder is very handy and adjusts to many different sized ipods. I have a Touch, I didn't try it on other kinds. Great product!

Well it works, but.... Every time I go around a corner it rotates around the cigarette lighter socket, it's only point of contact with the car and flings the iphone against the gear stick or the floor. I now have an unsightly piece of string holding it in place. There must be better somewhere!!! ALso a bit of a pain that you have to plug in the power socket at the bottom and the audio jack at the top. Surely they could have done it all with one socket. And it keeps on turning off even though powered and in use.......

This product does exactly what it says on the tin! Despite it's suprisingly modest price, it performs extremely well in all aspects. I purchased this unit over 4 weeks ago and have had it in daily use with my iphone 3G in my 4x4 every day. The unit provides a sturdy and sensible height hands free cradle, whilst enabling you to either listen to your iphone's itunes or to receive/make calls completely hands free, using your existing in-car stereo speakers. The unit even lowers the volume automatically when you are listening to itunes on the iphone when you either make or receive an incoming call.

In summary, I have found this unit extremely good value for money and the only tip I would pass on when using it is to ensure that your iphone volume is set to the max before you plug it into the device-that way the output signal is maximised into your car stereo, which avoids any distortion when adjusting the car stereo for volume on playback or 'phone calls. With regards to the 'beeping' reported by some other reviewers, this is simply the digital phone signal from your device 'cross talking' into the car stereo when in close proximity-I found that by simply moving the unit a couple of centimeteres either way by bending the adjustable stalk slightly cured this problem straight away.

All in all - an excellent product!

This product is OK. It works well as a charger and FM Transmitter. The side holders do not hold the ipod particularly well as it doesn't grip the ipod that well - I have cut some of the foam away to get a firmer grip but fail to see why this hasn't already been done. As there are only 2 prongs to plug into the cigarette lighter I do find it a bit fiddly when trying to gain a connection within the lighter before getting a good position.

The remote doesn't seem to work with my Ipod classic and there were no instructions so can't see why this is.

For the price a competent product but with a few negatives.
