4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money socks, 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
According to the packaging these are made in the USA and imported by Costco UK, and are US sizing. A fine, soft, warm, well-elasticated sock that keeps the toes toasty without feeling like you have carpet rolled round your feet. I like them so much I ordered another two packs, should keep me going for a while....

3.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap, and just as well, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If these had cost more than £0.98 for two I would feel a bit miffed. They quite often cause "Charging not supported with this accessory" messages and you have to be careful when removing them from your phone since the cover has a tendency to come off the plug.
However, some fiddling back and forth with different USB ports generally gets things charging, and so far I have always managed to reassemble the plugs. And each cable cost me as much as a packet of crisps! For that kind of money, you can't really complain, but be aware that you are venturing into the bargain basement and I really wouldn't recommend relying on one of these as your sole charging cable. However as convenience spares they work fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope you weren't using those retinas..., 29 Mar. 2013

This thing is scary bright - be careful when pointing it at other people since especially in the dark it is very easy to leave them completely dazzled for quite a while - not so good if they are e.g. cycling at speed. Similarly, when dialled all the way up you can find that you blind yourself to anything outside the illuminated area, so for most usage it is actually best to have it on about half-power and max beam width. You then get a large well-lit patch, but still have some peripheral awareness of what is outside the illuminated zone.
For longer distance work, wind the brightness up and narrow the focus and you can illuminate a very impressive distance, handy if you e.g. need to work out how you are going to cross a boggy field or locate a gate.

Recharging works very well - it comes with a usb transformer thing (similar to the old blackberry ones where the UK three-pin bit slides off) plus a cable with a flat USB plug on one end and a round headphone-jack type thing on the other which plugs into a little rubber-sealed orifice on the headband. This means that if you are travelling with e.g. a phone charger you only need the cable, which is very convenient. When charging the headlamp flashes green and then stays green when charged. This plus the ability to swap out the rechargeables for ordinary AAA batteries in an emergency gives you a lot of flexibility.

For some reason the on-off switch is very small, while the focus lever is larger - can make it a bit awkward to switch on/off when wearing gloves, but the focusing works well, as does the big dimmer switch on the back of the head. The angle adjustment on the lamp works well too, easy to move but staying in place if you want to shine it down at your feet or straight ahead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, gets the job done, not brilliant but will keep your toes warm for a winter., 29 Mar. 2013

Some wool stuck to a foam/latex backing. Have a tendency to shift about a bit inside footwear. Nothing spectacular and I have doubts about the durability, but certainly enough to get you through the cold months at least once. And dirt cheap - for this price you can't fault them even if you have to buy two new pairs each year.

5.0 out of 5 stars I should have bought this years ago., 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't believe I wasted so much time and money on various rubbish bags and wasted so much effort packing and carrying them. This thing is no bigger than the old targus bag I got from work, but seems to have 10x the internal volume.
It also has pockets inside the pockets, with more pockets on them - massive amounts of storage and organisation. I flew off with a laptop, a netbook, a kindle, a (paper) pad, a wireless mouse and a bunch of assorted chargers and cables. When unpacking I found one of the larger compartments was completely unused except for my umbrella I had forgotten was in there!
Nice comfy straps, well-padded back, bomb-proof quality, padded carrying handle and a strong wide loop-thing for hooking over the handle of a trolley case save you carrying it through the airport. I can't recommend it enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's cheap, I'm cheerful, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very very simple to operate - just to echo other reviews, you need to stick the prongs a few mm into the wood to get a sensible reading since the surface will often show as 2-3%.
This does mean that if you have a lot of very hard wood, you will not get much joy out of this gadget unless you aggressively stab the logs - which probably won't do much for the lifespan of the meter.

Measurement points are pretty sharp and seem reasonably sturdy - don't let small children near this or they may be tempted to measure the moisture content of your ankle, which would be painful.

4.0 out of 5 stars It does the job nicely, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Caveat - I have no way of testing whether the thing is accurate, since it's the only stove thermometer I own.
Having said that, I have no reason to suspect it of being inaccurate. It appears well made, within the constraints of being made out of thin sheet metal and a big springy coil of something temperature responsive.
The magnet was powerful enough to yank it out of my fingers and slam it onto the cast-iron stove, where it has clung like a limpet ever since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice snug fit on my passport. Holds lounge pass and frequent flyer cards without the extra bulk of the travel wallet thing I used to use. Nice solid leather holding up well to spending considerable time in my back pocket and being stuffed into bags/coats etc.
Looks smart and reasonably discreet.
No quibbles from any border people (even the ones at Heathrow) everyone just folds it back and stuffs the 'magic page' into the reading machine.
Basically, its exactly what I wanted and at a bargain price. Can't fault it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I know nothing, but the recipient loved them, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My other half is a keen (and very skilled) knitter, and I got her these as a gift since I know she had been looking for a modular set with mix-n-match lengths of cable and needle sizes. These were a huge hit since the coloured plywood needles are bright, nicely pointed, and very very smooth - apparently this is important for knitting.
The screw-on cable attachments are very solid and high-quality, and the caps are dead handy - just swap them in for the needles and no need to transfer the knitting onto one of those keeper thingies, it can stay on the cable while another bit of the garment is being worked on. No problems with anything coming unfastened when it shouldn't, despite much mileage being put on the things in the last 3 months.

She says the only thing that could be improved would be if needle sizes were etched on the metal rather than stamped on the wood where it can be hard to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good piece of equipment, with a small bit missing..., 11 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Light, cheap and effective. When using the lopper, make sure to remove the sawblade and associated wingnut as suggested by someone else. If you concentrate on cutting on the pull rather than the push, you can go through a 10cm thick branch without too much difficulty, although your arms get tired fast.

When using the saw, I was initially a bit disappointed by how shaky it all seemed until I realised that the bolt which is supposed to run through the metal head and the middle of the pole was missing, and the head was creeping off the top of the pole. I loosened the two pinch bolts on the side, resettled the head ino the right place, put an old bolt through the middle, tightened it all up and went back to massacring the neighbours leylandii - much better. Also the example I received was very dusty and gritty on the inside of the telescoping sections, meaning it tended to stick a bit. Although I think I got a bit of a sub-standard one I don't mind giving it four stars because it's very cheap for what it is, and it got the job done effectively enough.

BE AWARE: When using any of these devices, bits you cut tend to come sliding down the pole straight at you. If you are cutting a branch thick enough to need the saw, it is most likely going to be heavy, and sometimes they drop cut end first straight down. The aforementioned 10cm branch left a very impressive dent in the ground, I'm glad it missed me.
