    Great tool for occasional use

    posted by JimJunkie on 06/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works great where you don't need a 100% accurate reading. As far as I can tell it is pretty accurate, I'm just not sure how much I'd trust it. Easy to use Has held together well for over 2 years now Battery lasts a long time Laser sight is handy
    Cons:
    Feels slightly cheap, but it has held together well and nothing has broken in the few years I've had it. Storage is a bit troub...

    posted by JimJunkie on 06/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compact, discreet and it works. Charges phones (iPhone, Lumia 920, Desire HD) just fine, runs small usb appliances.
    Cons:
    Not enough juice output to charge my Asus Transformer Tablet, but that takes a LOT of juice. Does charge phones a touch slowe...

    Great torch

    posted by JimJunkie on 06/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright Solid Build Zoom is good Not too many functions (Bright, Dim, Flash), so you don't have to cycle through them every time Runs off AAA batteries
    Cons:
    None come to mind, it's done everything I've wanted it to.

    Looks nice

    posted by JimJunkie on 06/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Looks great, practical when using just the tablet. Seems to be pretty sturdy construction with a good finish. Folding into a makeshift stand and the magnetic seal is a nice touch.
    Cons:
    I didn't really think of it to begin with, but it doesn't accomodate the keyboard for the Transformer, so you can only use it w...

    Does what it should

    posted by JimJunkie on 11/14/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's the right size, it's small & light so you can just jam it in your backpack & forget about it. Basically, it works as a survival tool - you don't think about it until you need it, then it's just there & works
    Cons:
    Nothing really, maybe a cover for the striker or a little box to fit it all away in so it didn't tangle with other things would...

    Can't beat it for price and quality

    posted by JimJunkie on 08/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright Cheap compared to traditional ultra bright lights Durable Long battery life
    Cons:
    Heating (on original model, has now been fixed I believe) Lead is a bit short (can be fixed with extension cable SKU32751) Diff...

    Pretty cool

    posted by JimJunkie on 08/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use Great functionality - min/max, multiple external sensor support Information clearly visible Intuitive to use Doesn't look or feel to 'cheap'
    Cons:
    You have to 'reboot' (i.e. remove and reinsert batteries) the main unit every time you change the batteries in a sensor. A bit...

    Good solid cable

    posted by JimJunkie on 08/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Durable construction Good terminations - plugs won't fall apart like some No problems with signal quality Looks good
    Cons:
    Only thing I can think of is that it doesn't have re-usable end protectors. Well, you could re-use them, if you could ever fin...

    Perfect for looking into walls

    posted by JimJunkie on 08/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid construction Swivel on end means maneuvering mirror is easy, and it can be pointed in any direction at any angle easily. Mirror is a good size Plenty of length
    Cons:
    None that I can think of. A bigger mirror might make it easier to see sometimes, but it also wouldn't fit into all the same sp...

    Light is a little dodgy

    posted by JimJunkie on 08/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good strong magnet Solid construction - telescoping doesn't slip Light on end is useful
    Cons:
    The light on the front doesn't always work easily. You have to fiddle with the screw end to get it to stay on at full brightnes...
