    Cheap, good for non-serious use

    posted by Littletip on 03/02/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap. They work though. Of course you get what you pay for. The real capacity is about 1/10 of the stated, or about 300mAh. The capacity depends on how you charge it - if in high current (e.g. 1A) the battery gets "full" charged very quickly, but the...
    Cons:
    Not a decent 3000mAh, only about 300mAh. Don't know why the manufacture does this kind of "self-degradation" thing. This makes ...

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

    Pros:
    I have several old electronis devices like alarm clocks and game machines that use C size batteries. Nowadys those C size rechargable batteries are often expensive compared to AA ones with lower capacities. These adaptors convet AA batteries to C size there...
    Cons:
    None really. If really trying to find fault with it, then the flip hinges between the two halves of the adaptor seem somewhat t...

    A Universal Power Supply!

    posted by Littletip on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have 5 different laptops at my home and over the years some of the power adaptors are too old and the power cables/leads are worn out. With this replacement cable set I can make a "universal" power adaptor which works for any of those laptops. T...
    Cons:
    No cons at all.

    The sound quality of the speakers is not that good, especially when in high volume, distortions are apparantly noticeable. The ...

    posted by Littletip on 10/09/2012 Certified Owner

    The wall of the holder could be slightly thicker for better durability. The power leads are somewhat thiner than expected. They...

    Good Quality and Good Price

    posted by Littletip on 07/22/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The build up and sound quality are very good compared to other earbuds with similar prices. For listening music the frequency response of the sound is somewhat limited but more than good enough for listening audio books. It is also very good to use with cel...
    Cons:
    The cord is somewhat weak. In one case is was broken after a couple of months. Sound distortion increased with increase of volu...

    A very useful tiny tool

    posted by Littletip on 07/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As an electronics hobbiest I often need to extract IC chips from circuit boards. Before I got this tool I used a screw driver to do the job and the electric pins of the IC are very easy to get bent due to uneven forces were applied to the IC chip. With this...
    Cons:
    It can only work for IC's of certain range of sizes. It won't work for too small or too large IC chips. A set of such extractor...

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

    Pros:
    The build-up of the charger is acceptable. The charge current is about 220mA per battery and seems charge in constant current model.
    Cons:
    There is a power cord attached to the charger which makes the charger bulky and not convenient to use and carry. The batteries ...

    Good Batteries!

    posted by Littletip on 07/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are the AAA version of SKU #91886. Like the AA version, they look very well built low self discharge NiHM batteries. Stated capacity is decent. Tried in an electronic dictionary and performance is very good and similar to those "Recharge" brand LSD Ni...
    Cons:
    Nothing can be thought as cons. Every aspect appears perfect.

    Good Build-up 9V Rechargable Battery

    posted by Littletip on 07/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Actual voltage is about 8.35V right after charge and drops to about 7.6V after standing up overnight. Tried on different analogue devices and found it works well regardless the low norminal voltage of 7.4V. Devices tried include digital alarm clock, stud sc...
    Cons:
    Low norminal voltage (actually this is not a real con, as nothing can be done for Li-ion type batteries). May not function prop...
