    Great bit of Bling for your car

    posted by GarryJSmith on 09/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Ordered 2 of these - already have 2 silver ones and wanted to upgrade those to Golden. Arrived individually packaged and WITH 3M tape backing as advertised.
    Cons:
    Absolutely no cons in this one - made of metal and with the 3M tape on the back for sticking to your desired surface. The silv...

    Excellent Device for Car Battery maintenance

    posted by GarryJSmith on 08/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent device for keeping a car battery topped up. I have this mounted on a visor and running directly to the battery using the cables provided. I can now leave the alarm on for several days without running the car and the battery is always topped u...
    Cons:
    Not a con - but it would have been nice if this came with a Waterproof option or sealing package - it recommends that you can w...

    Not as Robust as it looks

    posted by GarryJSmith on 02/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This item arrived looking exactly like it does in the images. However, not nearly robust enough for the intended use. The "bearing" is actually a piece of chromed metal through the middle of the handle with a fat screw and washer at each end. With the...
    Cons:
    "Bearing" is overlong and makes the handle excessively loose and therefore it is very loose and rattles - I disassembled it and...

    Works Fine for Me

    posted by GarryJSmith on 02/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent little device - took it and the accompanying cable out of the box and plugged it in - Bong went the computer - slipped in an SD 4GB card - no worries. Wrote just under 1GB of MP3 files to the card in what I thought was a very quick time - no trou...
    Cons:
    No Cons - worked straight off the bat for Windows XP

    This one is a little confused

    posted by GarryJSmith on 02/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little compass is a little confused - it thinks North is South and East is West - and visa versa. I think someone stuck the round label on without checking the compass points :-) Cute little case and would have been a fun addition to my old car - but...
    Cons:
    Shame but not a very useful compass - not unless you want to give it to someone you don't like and want them to go bush with it...

    Good bit of Bling

    posted by GarryJSmith on 01/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice bit of bling and it seems to work as advertised. Tested it with a USB flash chip and also tested it to charge my mobile phone - all fine. The bling bit is that it looks good in the cigarette lighter for my old 1981 Benz :-)
    Cons:
    No cons - you get what you pay for.....

    Absolutely Perfect

    posted by GarryJSmith on 01/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I purchased two off these as some additional brake lights - fitted them easily just behind the rear seat headrests in my old 1981 Benz. Sufficient wire to reach into the boot and out to the brake light fittings. These, plus SKU_10527 now light up the rea...
    Cons:
    None - work exactly as advertised

    Very Good Product

    posted by GarryJSmith on 01/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Exactly what I expected - nice size nice look. Fitted to my old 1981 Benz with just a few problems.
    Cons:
    3M tap had a bit of a problem sticking to the right angled curves of the bumper on the Benz - the chrome bits would not stay in...

    Absolutely Perfect

    posted by GarryJSmith on 01/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Took only minutes to mount in my old 1981 Benz - mounted at the top - ran wiring around window, down through a hole in the rear panel straight into the boot and to the brake light fittings and bingo all working just fine. Had to add a couple of meters of w...
    Cons:
    Watch out for the 3M tape - when it grabs it is on for life :-) - I have a tinted rear window and the 3M just grabbed as I was ...
