  • Bad build quality

    posted by geirlk on 06/13/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Easy to use

    - Takes 4 standard AA batteries

    Cons:

    - Really bad build quality

    - Lacks screw for the lid to the battery cover

    - Part to cover the wiring and on/off-button on the inside was entirely loose. Which turned out to be a good thing, because A) the on/off button didn't work, and B) the wiring was soldered on so it actually short circuited the batteries!

    - Loose USB cable just barely attached by the inner cables.

    - No voltage adjustment

    OtherThoughts:

    With a soldering iron, a strip to fasten the USB cable and some epoxy glue I easily fixed all problems. All these things are so simple, I do believe they could _easily_ have done it at the factory!

    Bottomline:

    It's worth it's weight in plastic, barely as is. With a little fixing and patience it's usable.
