    Handy sized pack.

    posted by Criggie on 02/25/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works fine - the tube shrinks up perfectly well in an electric heat gun, a butane hot air torch, a hair dryer, and a lighter.
    Cons:
    Don't use a lighter for this if you can avoid it. There is no adhesive or sealant inside, so if you heat shrink two or more ...

    It shrinks when it gets hot

    Nice warm yellow-white lamps

    posted by Criggie on 02/25/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its a light bulb, you plug it in and it gives out light. Not a lot to say here. The bayonet fitting actually fits, which is good. Many LED lamps flare out rapidly from the base and can be blocked by a light-fitting's casing.
    Cons:
    Not a con, but the cooling slot holes in the end do look a little odd when the lamp is off. You can't see them when the power ...

    My new favourite camera

    posted by Criggie on 01/13/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent vision both day and night mode. Good colour rendition... there's no purple grass like cheap nasty IR cameras!
    Cons:
    Downsides so far... 1) the lens FOV is a little narrow at 6mm.. would be better with 4mm or 3.6 mm for more width, but then it...

    Works for me

    posted by Criggie on 01/08/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The description is wrong - this is a spiral cable suitable for using as a replacement brake cable. I fitted this to an older 10 speed road bike and its working nicely. The inner wires came with both sorts of connector, so you snip the wrong end off. Also...
    Cons:
    The end cable crimps - could do with a better way to put them on, and a couple more would have been a handy idea. Also the fer...

    Does the business.

    posted by Criggie on 10/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this for my boy's cell phone, because it kept doing dumb things, and not turning the display off once it had been taken off charge.... almost as though the original battery sometimes told the phone it was still being charged. This new battery appe...
    Cons:
    None.

    Nice light

    posted by Criggie on 10/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its low power, fits the socket nicely, and provides a nice clear light.
    Cons:
    The field of illumination is a bit smaller than I expected, a cone of about 25 degrees. So it produces a pool of light, great ...

    Excellent

    posted by Criggie on 09/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I couldn't find this in my country - its simple enough though. This is in my SFF Desktop and holds a fast 64 GB SSD and a slow 1TB hard drive (5400 RPM, out of a USB caddy), both 2.5". And it fits into a 3.5" disk space. You don't need to take...
    Cons:
    None. It was a bit bent when it arrived, but nothing that couldn't be tweaked back into shape.

    OMFG this is bright!

    posted by Criggie on 09/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Damn this is bright! And being blue it totally kills your night vision. I use it while walking my dog at night - cars backing out driveways stop really fast when theres a big blue light behind them.... much better than getting hit by a car.
    Cons:
    Blue lights are illegal on vehicles in my country, they're reserved for police only. So I never used it even on my bicycle, an...

    Excellent EDC torch

    posted by Criggie on 09/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    ITS BLUE! My wife loves the colour. It takes batteries you can actually buy pretty much anywhere. And its excellently bright.
    Cons:
    None so far - the threads were a bit odd and galled easily, until lubed with torch grease like SKU:47418
