    Handy converter to AU sockets

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 01/20/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, easy to use and a great way to convert your 2 prong plugs to the AU style. Will work with flat or round 2 prong (non earthed) plugs.
    Cons:
    None so far and hard to see how there could be any, unless you are concerned about how this adapter ads about 2.5cm to the size...

    Waterproof your digital camera

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 04/27/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Made of soft, yet tough flexible plastic. Welded seams look good, even and strong. Make sure you order the right size for your camera and it seems to do the job. I tested mine by placing camera inside and then sitting the whole thing in a bucket of water...
    Cons:
    Was a bit worried the seal on the screw thread to attach the lens cover would leak, but once done up tight, it did not leak

    Small and handy travel scales

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 04/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a convenient sized, hand-held luggage scale which is a good size to be able to take in your suitcase for weighing your bags for the return journey. Make sure all those souvenirs you bought wont put you into 'excess baggage' fees!
    Cons:
    Apart from the display screen feeling a little soft and, looks like it will easily scratch and damage, I haven't found any othe...

    Consistently good quality

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 11/16/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Useful travel mug with a real novelty value. The stainless steel lining makes it a bit more classy than competitors and the attention to detail is fantastic. Looks just like a lens.
    Cons:
    The insulation still allows the plastic cover to get quite warm.

    Great copy of a lens - to drink from!

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 10/11/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing is well built, great copy with plenty of detail. I expect it will fool a lot of my office mates on first glance. Inside is Aluminium (I think), but some sort of shiny metal, so better than those plastic interiors.
    Cons:
    The little sealing flap on the lid leaks a bit, so if you tip the mug over, it will leak. But wont most of them in this price ...

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

    Pros:
    Fairly well made Good looking Doesn't look cheap and nasty Came in full retail packaging Genuine HUGlight (or at least a VERY good copy)
    Cons:
    Mine arrived and had a dead short straight out of the pack - batteries heated up to almost burning within seconds of insertion ...

    Pros:
    Very bright for the size. Very flexible. Many uses. Will be a great camping light.

    Good Reflectors

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 09/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive, self-adhesive, good reflectivity.
    Cons:
    Mine arrived folded in half, which exposed some of the glue to air and made getting them to stick flat a challenge. Other than ...

    Good for joining wires

    posted by AussieSoco01 on 09/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quite low cost. Reasonable quality for the job. Can be cut into smaller groups, or even singles, if need be. As good as you will buy at most local electronics stores, but cheaper!
    Cons:
    None that I have found yet.
