    Well made, simple solar vibramotor

    posted by Googlyhead on 11/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simply a 'phone vibramotor connected to a pretty decent solar panel in a well made and considered package. Nicely designed, decent materials and components. Can't really be faulted for what it's designed to be.
    Cons:
    I guess it's no hexbug! There's no directed motion; just vibrating on the spot with the odd random movement by pure chance. It ...

    Pros:
    Umm. They're a pair of cute soft hollow bunnies with suckers on the back. Pleasing production quality; not a single mis-mould. English wording! Makes it useful for valentines' day! ;-)
    Cons:
    Detailing (eyes etc) is all printed onto identical shapes. Printing lacks sharpness in places, but only upon close inspection. ...

    Amazing.

    posted by Googlyhead on 01/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Relatively cheap for a 5-mode Q5! Bright, nicely made, quite tight focus and efficient. Lasts more than 24hrs on medium beam with a partially discharged battery!
    Cons:
    Thread conductivity was a little iffy, but cleaning and ensuring well-tightened takes care of that.

    Chunky, well made and durable

    posted by Googlyhead on 01/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pretty much the ultimate when it comes to secure bike mounting for a torch. Over-engineered with no weak points - it'll hold over more bumps than the rest of the bike! Can't fault if this is what you're looking for. Plenty of adjustment thanks to the long s...
    Cons:
    Not quick release by any stretch of the imagination! For a knobbly torch, it takes a lot of unscrewing. Small amount of rotatio...

    Just works, plus it's compact and protected.

    posted by Googlyhead on 01/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Can't argue with the functionality; works with everything with no special drivers. Compact sturdy case and plug / reader.
    Cons:
    USB end is left open, so potential for fluff / dirt. Can get warm (but not hot) with intensive use.

    Simple variation on the mini flip-flaps

    posted by Googlyhead on 01/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice variation on the flip-flap theme, with the wings replacing leaves. Same / similar size design to the other minis. Acumulative movement from very little light.
    Cons:
    Simplistic mechanism - two wings pivoted within the pot (seperate from body) that only move together. Not the highest build qu...

    Simple but nice. And it's an air-scenter too.

    posted by Googlyhead on 01/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice (cute) design head shaking (side-to-side) Works with minimal light Also comes with scent pad (place in base) and foam to stick it down.
    Cons:
    Not the best mechanism in the world - when sufficient power has been captured, the head is 'jerked' to make it sway, only this ...

    Design, painting, quality, subject - all great! Stiff shiny spring.
