2.0 out of 5 stars NOT TEMPERED GLASS REAR COVER., 24 July 2016
Description is front and back covers, this is not the case. The front is tempered glass and the back a standard protection foil.

Having dropped my phone a couple of times whilst on holiday the tempered glass I had applied to the back of the phone cracked, so chose this as a replacement thinking I was buying tempered glass front and rear, OK my fault for not reading the description properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solar project battery., 23 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great little battery.

I'm using this battery on a small solar system in a garage with no power, it powers a couple of strips of 12 volt LED strips perfectly, I have a solar regulator to prevent over charging and a 50 watt panel on the garage roof.

This battery is Lith-ion which means it will hold it's power longer when not in use, it is also lighter in weight to conventional lead acid batteries.

There are a couple of precautions with this battery, the first is that is does not come fully charged so must be charged before use, I used my trusty Ctek charger to charge the battery. The second precaution is the charging voltage must NOT exceed 14.7 volts as permanent damage could occur.

The terminals on the battery are bolt on style and terminals are supplied.

A great little battery that suits my needs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Illuminated mirror, 16 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Decent mirror for travel, illuminated with 4 bright white LED's that are operated with a tiny switch on the side of the mirror, batteries are supplied. Features a standard mirror and a 2x mirror. Would have like the mirror to illuminate automatically when opening and a switch to turn them off if not required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart brushing., 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A toothbrush with a difference!!

OK, so if you like gadgets/gimmicks then this Oral-B toothbrush will be right up your street.

Whist this looks like any other powered toothbrush there is a difference, this brush has blue-tooth capabilities meaning you can monitor your brushing performance via your smart phone if you so wish, personally I find this feature a little OTT but it does have some useful features.

This brush cleans teeth well, just like any other powered tooth brush, but has several different functions. The brush head oscillates up and down as well as back and fourth and there are different heads for different uses and modes to suit the heads !! Sounds complicated............then add in the Braun App and you could spend all morning in the bathroom trying to work it out!!

The Braun App is can be customised so that brushing time is extended, the LED colour on the top of the toothbrush can also be changed and you can monitor cleaning areas that you miss or over clean, this LED also flashes red when you apply too much pressure.

This brush cleans very well, but I think sonic slightly edges it, though I have been using my sonic brush on full power for months now, the next dentist appointment will tell me if this Oral B brush is working well.

A good feature is the storage case that incorporates a USB charging socket for your phone, also supplied is a mirror mount again for your smart phone.

So, if you want an all singing all dancing toothbrush then look no further.


Vax U85-ACLG-BA Air Cordless Lift Solo Upright Vacuum Cleaner, 1 Litre, Graphite/Blue/Black
Vax U85-ACLG-BA Air Cordless Lift Solo Upright Vacuum Cleaner, 1 Litre, Graphite/Blue/Black
Price: £179.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Cordless power gets better., 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Cordless cleaner have come along way since the hand held little vacuums of days past and this Vax Air Lift Solo upright proves just that.

This cleaner is very convenient to use on a daily basis due to it not having a cord, so easy for those little mishaps as this cleaner picks up as well as a regular mains powered vacuum. There are two power modes, standard and a boost button for harder to pick up dirt, the brush head can also be switched on and off.

The tools supplied are easy to release from the hose, the clips are also easy to release without being weak. There is a light on the front of the cleaner for picking out dirt in those hard to see areas, a great feature. A 2 in 1 crevice tool and a small brush head are supplied.

The cleaning head is smaller than a regular cleaner and is also powered, this means it is easy to get under raised furniture but just as powerful especially on pet hairs, maneuvering the cleaner is easy due to the body being extremely flexible.

Run time is around 30 minutes so long enough for regular clean, this cleaner is supplied with just ONE battery so when this one runs out of juice your stuck unless you use the voucher Vax conveniently supply in the packaging giving 40% off a second battery, we ordered one for £40 instead of £80, I do feel that this cleaner should be supplied with TWO batteries.

The cyclone body detaches from the main cleaner for cleaning in awkward places or in the car, but does feel a little cumbersome and heavy.

As with most other bagless cleaners regular cleaning and emptying are required to get the full performance from the cleaner, there is also a filter that needs to be cleaned under running water regularly.

Time will tell if the tools/clips or hose fail after a while but Vax have supplied this cleaner with a 5 year warranty for piece of mind.

This cleaner is a great alternative to mains powered cleaners, it's powerful and convenient and has some great features.

Love it............


Jam Audio 2.0 Classic Speaker - Black
Jam Audio 2.0 Classic Speaker - Black
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Jam speaker., 3 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've had the chance to bring this little marvel with me on holiday, this speaker is about the size of a jam jar and is not too heavy to pack in your hand luggage.

Blue tooth pairing was simple and straight forward with my Sony Z5 compact, range is good as well. You can also use an aux input too.

The sound from this speaker is crisp and clear, it's not going to shake the walls but does have a respectable output and can fill the room.

The speaker is charged via a USB charger or computer USB socket, battery life is OK and will last for around 5-6 hours at a medium volume.

The speaker looks well made and should withstand knocks and scrapes whilst on your travels.

A decent little speaker.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't keep cats interested., 14 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our two 1 year olds loved this for all of a day, whilst they both love their food they seem not to love this toy that much.

I filled the toy up with their favourite dry food, one in particular got the idea of this feeding toy straight away and was spinning it happily and being rewarded for doing so, whilst the other just watched his brother doing all the hard work and then nicking the odd treat. After around and hour the interest dropped and now a few days later they hardly go near the toy, we have even tried it with their 'special' treats but again not a lot of interest. One thing I don't like is the dry food sometimes comes out and is not seen, so food ends up being trod into the floor or even carpet, not good.


Home Discount 30 Litre Stainless Steel Pedal Bin With Inner Bucket FREE DELIVERY
Home Discount 30 Litre Stainless Steel Pedal Bin With Inner Bucket FREE DELIVERY
Price: £24.89

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality but serves its purpose, 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Larger than expected, build quality is flimsy especially the pedal mechanism which seems to have a lot of play in it. The lid shuts with a tinny sound, this I'm going to resolve with some car sound deadening under the lid.

The bin we received also had some small scratches in the stainless steel finish, but they are on the back of the bin so not really visible.

We use bin liners inside the plastic inner bin but when removing the liner there is a hole inner bin that creates a vacuum so making it difficult to lift the inner liner out with it's attached handle without tearing a hole in the bottom of the bin liner, a little piece of duck tape will fix the problem.

Not overwhelmed with this purchased but it serves it's purpose but for how long is yet to be seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the price., 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These scales are OK but having inserted the batteries into the rather tight battery compartment for the first time the scales just kept throwing an error, I removed the batteries and started again and the scales then started working ok.

Four different measuring scales and a maximum of 500gm possible, the scales also have a tare button so you can zero them when weighing items in a container ETC. The LCD readout is clear and backlit by a blue LED.

Not the best of quality but I wanted something cheap and cheerful to weigh out 60g of special dry food for our cat, for the price you can't really go wrong.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Light & Silky Protection Lotion SPF15 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Light & Silky Protection Lotion SPF15 200ml
Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasent and not sticky., 30 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A pleasant lotion to use, and as the manufacturers describe is quite light and not sticky it also has a nice scent to it.

This lotion is quickly absorbed into the skin and provides a 15 factor protection rating, I am fair skinned so know the dangers of burning and a factor 15 is the lowest I use and I apply on a regular basis.

A good quality sunscreen from a trusted maker.
