Drift Innovation Compass Action Camera - Black
Drift Innovation Compass Action Camera - Black
Price: £99.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A good video camera for most uses, plus stills etc, 25 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Drift camera came in a nicely designed and attractive box, it's easy to set up which is handy because the directions are not very good, basically charge it fully using USB port and put SD card in slot and away you go, I had no problems downloading app etc onto my (Android) phone and the camera does what it's told although there's a knack to tapping the camera body to stop/start, it's easy to get used to it

I clipped it onto the sun visor in my Jeep and recorded my first journey, got home and watched it, good crisp video! I want to do the same with my motorbike as the narrow lanes can be dodgy (already had a car hit my Land rover in front wing, I was parked in a passing place waiting for him to pass me! It was still judged as 50/50 fault as narrow lane, I wasn't happy, camera can be a good witness) but so far haven't found a suitable mount, even after buying the Drift accessory kit, but at least that's got a good box, I will sort it out though

I think it's a decent camera, compact and reliable, and at a very good price IMO, just wish they did a suitable handlebar mount that allows it to fit magnetically in verticals position for us motorcyclists and bicycle riders

Price: £68.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent smart battery charger/tender., 14 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These units are USA based so can be relied upon as our American friends won't put up with poor performance!

I used mine to keep the battery ready for occasional use on my Harley motorbike, these bikes these days have a complex security system which puts a drain on the battery if left much more than a week without use, I fitted a plug to the power leads to make life simple but kept the clips to use on other batteries

It works reliably and my bike is always fully charged, a neat little unit from a well known maker, very easy to use and recommended by many manufactures including Harley Davidson

I would recommend it to maintain your car or bike

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent polish!, 8 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am fussy about polish for my Harley motorbike, I have seen this polish advertised before but still bought my usual brand, that has now changed as this if the best I have ever used, it's more expensive but in my opinion it's worth every penny!

It comes in a pack with a large multifibre buffing cloth and a small round application sponge in one compartment and the plastic polish bottle in the other, just the job to keep them clean

My bike has all black paintwork and black rubber trims on fuel tank etc, in the past polish has always left white chalky smear on the trims which are a pain to get off, no problem with Meguairs though as no chalk content, so easy to apply and buff off, even in hot sunshine!

It was almost therapeutic to polish bike with this product, I will be doing the car next, I tried it on the bonnet already, again superb results and very easy to obtain a real gleam to the paintwork

Five stars, I would give more if I could, great quality polish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good microwave bowls, 8 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First thing I noticed was there's a big difference between the size of outside of bowl compared to the inside capacity, it has to be that way to keep cool, which It does but don't expect it to be cold after cooking, it's warm but still comfortable to pick up

The lids slide off very easily so not good for carrying the bowl with food inside, but ok for use inside the microwave oven

I like these bowls and have used them a lot already, easy to wash too, the only reason I didn't give five stars is I think they should have a handle or at least a lip of some sort as they can be awkward to pick up from a soapy wash bowl, or it might be me that's awkward!

Good quality and I would recommend them, in fact I'm buying another of their products today

Sol Republic RELAYS SPORT In-Ear Headphone with Noise Isolation, Black
Sol Republic RELAYS SPORT In-Ear Headphone with Noise Isolation, Black
Price: £39.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound quality, 29 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I looked forward to these but have been disappointed, firstly they came in smart packaging, but it's also the most ridiculously fiddly to unpack, silly little sticky bits, I had to use a knife to untangle the wires from the cardboard! Not best with thin delicate wiring involved, but I managed with no damage.

Once ready to use I plugged them into my HTC10 phone, they were pretty awful to my ears, tinny and very poor bass, to be honest the HTC supplied set are far better.

They came with a variety of ear pieces which fitted well though

Not much more I can say apart from I wouldn't recommend them really, I tried them on other audio equipment, still poor


Honeywell HDE010E1 Dehumidifier, 10 Litres/24h
Honeywell HDE010E1 Dehumidifier, 10 Litres/24h
Price: £149.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent unit, good value for money, 21 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A well designed and efficient machine from Honeywell, I didn't find it heavy to move around but I don't have stairs so no problem, it has very simple controls and easy to understand, on off and choice of humidity level

It's reasonably quiet in operation and removes an impressive amount of water from the room atmosphere, it comes with a 10ltr container and also an optional plastic pipe to drain it, it could probably need an extension to the plastic drain pipe though, I only use the supplied internal container which is also very easy to empty and replace

The power cord is about the right length, it came well packed and reasonably easy to unpack, once out the box it's ready to go and can be plugged in to do it's job, just remember to check water level if you use internal container option

Don't forget to close door and windows if it's one room, which it is in my old flint walled cottage, with poor ventilation

I would recommend this dehumidifier with confidence

5.0 out of 5 stars Great western series, 6 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this series of westerns, couldn't stop watching it! I am biased as a big fan of Gunsmoke, a few old timers like Jack Elam join James Arness in some episodes
