The product itself when the sticks are not faulty is excellent.
on 28 September 2015
I have been buying these refill sticks for several months now from Amazon and have found that 1 in 4 sticks (on average) don't work. They don't absorb the urine and therefore no reading comes up. However, I have never had this problem with the sticks bought from Boots. With the Boots sticks I get 4/4 that work! I am not sure if this supplier gets counterfeit sticks (if such a thing is possible) or if they are passed their use-by date but re-labeled, or it is just a fluke that in using 80+ sticks from Amazon over the last 4 months, 20+ have not worked, but when using Boots-bought ones for several months before this and a month after this (so c. 80+ sticks too) I have not had a single faulty stick. The product itself when the sticks are not faulty is excellent.
