It Feels (And Is) Cheap – Compass Keychain with Thermometer Reviews

-Its good value. -Its a nice idea to combine a compass with a thermometer. -The keyring feels quite strong for a cheap product -There is an adjustable dial around the compass for setting a bearing.
-I really would not want to depend on either the compass or the thermometer. The compass is unrealiable and has difficulty finding magnetic north. The thermometer is fairly accurate (give or take five degrees) - Consider it just as a novelty product.
-The compass part arrived with a hairline crack in it, wasn't worth a support ticket.
-The construction is cheap and basic. The compass is supeglued on and the thermometer is held in place by a piece of card at the back of the keyring.
At this price its worth it for its novely value, but don't expect it to be very useful.
