1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible! Probably the worst product I've ever bought., 25 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a dreadful product!!

To start with, it doesn't work at all when plugged directly into my car's cigarette lighter socket. The plug simply doesn't go in far enough and doesn't make a connection.

I tried plugging it into the two-way adapter that I had also ordered, and it only worked when pushed in REALLY hard. So hard that I had to use a pair of pliers to remove it.

And when I did get it working, the sound quality is appalling, with a constant background hiss. It doesn't matter what frequency I choose - the hiss is always there. It's like listening to cassette tapes - back to the seventies! The radio reception in my car is excellent - the sound system is superb. I can only assume that the signal transmitted by this device is either very weak, or very poor quality - or both. I cannot understand how some people are saying that this thing gives good sound quality - they must have very poor hearing!

This piece of crap is going straight back. Very, very disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good torch, but RUINED by stupid modes., 8 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The torch has five modes: bright, medium, low, strobe, and "SOS". Unfortunately, every time you switch this torch on it goes to the NEXT mode in that sequence, so if you always want to use it in "bright" mode you have to half-press the button four more times to cycle back round all the modes. How incredibly stupid and annoying!!

The seller's customer service tried to fob me off by telling me that it doesn't have a memory function and comes on in a random mode, but that's rubbish. It consistently comes on in the next mode in the sequence, every time - so yes it DOES remember the mode it was in, but instead of going back to the same mode it stupidly chooses the NEXT mode.

I can't live with that, it's just such a moronic design. It'll have to go back.

Pity, because in all other respects the torch looks and feels good quality. Hence I'm giving it two stars rather than one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for one-handed web surfing., 18 Sept. 2016
At last! This product is what I've been waiting for. Whenever I'm furiously masturbating to internet porn and want to type an email to my mum at the same time, this keyboard lets me carry on pounding away while I type simultaneously. Now I can compose an email or write a Word document all the way through to the 'vinegar strokes' - with a perfect happy ending every time. I've used mine a lot and some of the keys are getting a bit sticky, but it's still a great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality light. Here are the exact dimensions..., 30 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The light seems very well built and good quality. By my reckoning it's about 800 lumens, so slightly less than a 15W T5 fluorescent tube.

I was unsure whether it would fit my tank, because it's hard to know exactly what the 360mm length refers to. To help anyone else, the precise dimensions are as follows. My light is the 2x36cm version. The 360mm length includes the black end caps, but there are also two flanges with screw mounting holes that project further, thus increasing the overall length to 380mm. These flanges could be sawn off if you don't need them and if space is an issue - there's a choice of clips to give other mounting options instead. The cable comes out of one end and can easily be bent to remain within the 380mm, but if you're relying on fitting within 360mm then the cable entry could be a problem. The length of the glass tubes themselves is about 293mm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective. Delivered quickly., 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This pillow has been in the external filter of my 25 litre nano tank for only about 12 hours, and it has lowered the GH from at least 180 mg/l (the highest my test strips can measure) to approximately zero! In a normal size tank it wouldn't have quite such an extreme effect as this. As I expected it has no effect on KH: this pillow performs ion-exchange of the calcium and magnesium ions, replacing them with sodium ions, but has no effect on the carbonate and bicarbonate ions - hence the reduction in GH but no effect on KH. If your aim is to reduce KH (and hence reduce pH) then this isn't the right product for you.

In future I might not keep it in the filter because I don't really want zero GH, and instead drop it into the bucket of water overnight before doing a water change. My tank is newly set up and currently doesn't have any fish in it, so I'm experimenting with my water management.

The instructions say to recharge it using a salt solution (sodium chloride), but I intend to try recharging it with a solution of potassium chloride instead. I think this should work, and will result in the pillow releasing potassium ions into my aquarium instead of sodium ions - which will be good for the plants and better for the fish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but good, with built-in rechargable battery, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inexpensive but good. No need for a coin battery, as it seems to have its own rechargeable battery built-in. Fairly easy to program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sticks well, and easy to use., 11 Nov. 2015

Quite easy to use, and sticks well. Dip your finger in soapy water, and you can smooth the finish without your finger dragging at the bead of sealant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good. Easy to use. Recommended., 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to touch-up a small damaged patch on the silvered reflector bowl of one of my car's headlights. It obviously isn't as reflective as the chrome-plated surface, but it's really rather good and much better than I thought was reasonable to expect. Gives a surprisingly shiny finish. Easy to use as well.

Price: £14.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Eheim are the "Apple" of aquarium products. Not cheap, but it works well., 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all Eheim products, these work perfectly. They really make it much easier to establish the siphon when you're setting up your filter, and will hold water in the hoses while you do filter maintenance so that you don't have to re-establish the siphon again. They're quick and easy to disconnect, and only a few drops of water escape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but good, and safely delivered., 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pipes were considerably cheaper than others I have seen, but they are good quality and were delivered in very robust packaging. The funnel-shaped pipe gives good surface movement without creating a jet-like blast of water, which is exactly what I wanted. The pipes also visually disappear in my nano tank.
