    Pros:
    Small and light compass.

    Looks like a real compasses

    posted by FatalErr on 11/29/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Well, they are compasses, and they are VERY cheap - even if they don't do anything, they would be a nice souvenirs. And they seem to even work (this is not a miracle though :) ).
    Cons:
    Very small, looks almost as cheap as they cost, and are hardly usable for any purpose beside the toy/decoration, because they h...

    Great compass pack!

    posted by ddsab on 11/03/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    For the price, it's unbeatable! You get 10 mini compasses (only eight or so working, though) for the price of one.
    Cons:
    It's great it is a pack because not all of them worked, at least for me. So you can buy them already counting on that.

    Mini Compass Rocks

    posted by Namors on 11/08/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    They are only 16 cents each, so if one breaks or gets lost (as they are quite small) it's no big dilemma. Because they are so small I can keep one in my wallet.
    Cons:
    Needle gets stuck sometimes but a tap will loosen it. can crack and dry out, and some times gets demagnetised. Also I lined all...

    Pros:
    Small, 5 from 10 (50%) are working properly.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Cheap way to make few single-use compasses:-)

    posted by Syccullus on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very cheap gadget. Ten of them is enough for almost everyone's need. You will get tiny cute toy.
    Cons:
    In my case 2 of 10 actually working on horizontal setting (table:-). Some other work with elaborate finding of their equilibri...

    Useless trinkets

    posted by mairas on 02/02/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The size of these compasses is quite nice, if you value really, really small ones. They could be put just about everywhere. As an added bonus, a few of them actually function properly. Also, they're really cheap. Even if only a few worked, they still don't...
    Cons:
    Only three out of ten compasses actually functioned properly. The others have the magnet disk touch the casing, rendering them ...

    Cheap mini compasses

    posted by dealer33 on 11/13/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    These are really cheap! Some of them didn't point to the north, not even near, but some were actually quite exact! You can even turn them a little bit to the side, they don't need to be on a perfectly flat surface.
    Cons:
    Some of them did not point to the north. Actually about 5 of them pointed really somewhere else. The build quality could be bet...
