4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but stand-by time is not as advertised, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I should start by saying this device is one the best for it's price range. If it is going to be used in a static environment, where it is constantly powered and in a good phone reception area it is excellent. The clarity is as good as products much more expensive.

But - if you plan to use it in an area where you can't keep it powered you will not get the 1-2 day stand-by time nor the 1-2 hours constant use - or at least I don't. After leaving it on charge for 2-3 days the maximum standby I've had is just under a day. The max on constant is under an hour.

I've also never managed to get the map link that the device texts to your phone to work - even after installing google maps. But that could just be my phone.

All that said - it is a brilliant little device and the online support is one of the best I've come across.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best cover I've found so far, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had several of the 'hybridised' hard shell covers which are ok but tend to break quickly at the corners. This took a while to arrive but is well worth the wait. It's a softer rubber - with a much better grip and the cut-outs are perfectly positioned.Very attractive design too. On the front the sides are slightly raised too - which means if you put your phone face down the screen is not touching whatever surface it is on so saves scratches. Recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars It seems to work....., 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't know whether I have particularly hard stubble but the first few times I tried to use it - it didn't remove the hairs from inbetween the blades. I had always used a cotton bud to remove the hair that builds up during a shave so carried on doing that and then used the sharpener after cleaning with a bud at the end of the shave. it did seem to make a slightly blunt blade smoother next time - but I don't know that I would get the multiple re-uses some people claim. It's early days - maybe there is a technique for using it. Will persevere.

Update: So a week or so into using it - there is definitely a technique to getting the best out of it. I use a SMALL amount shaving cream as it allows the friction between the blades and the rubber and also I run it upwards about 10 times not the 4 or 5 suggested.

This is definitely a 'get what you pay for' device. It isn't the cheapest on the market but it works perfectly. Great sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ran it with two teenagers and an 8 year old in the car - I even used a 4-way adapter and it coped with powering two ipads and a laptop for a 3 hour journey. The fan is noisy, and it does get hot so be careful not to obscure the fan outlet. Recommend it.

This review is from: Joker Wig and Makeup Kit (Toy)
The wig is great. You get a bit warm when wearing it - but then, that might be the same for all wigs! Can't comment on the make-up as I used some professional latex scars and make-up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does work with Surface Pro - BUT.........., 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't rate the quality of the cable as I couldn't get it to work. It clearly states it is a cable for Apple products but I bought it anyway - thinking all mini display ports are the same. This is not the case - or rather the case of the Surface is the issue! It slants inwards which means the cable does not plug in all the way and hangs loosely.
As I say - not a comment on the product itself - just a note to Surface users that I couldn't get it to work.

UPDATE: I have managed to get this cable to work with Surface Pro - and link to TV. Audio and video quality good - BUT - the same problem remains that it doesn't fit the minidisplay port well and hangs loosely. I suspect over time it would damage the connections on Surface and / or keep falling out. But as I say - it does work.
