    Perfect fit for DX 289154 torch

    posted by Ricnz on 04/17/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This was purchased to hold a 289154 touch on a Police style duty belt. The belt loops easily fit wide belts. The 289154 torch fitted perfectly in this pouch with the torch sticking out enough to grab it even with gloves on. When comparing this one to b...
    Cons:
    None.

    Perfect fit for my Samsung S7500

    posted by Ricnz on 04/17/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have tried a number of holders that put pressure on phones power button so the phone goes on and off as you drive :-( This holder touches the S7500 well clear of its buttons, is easy to fit into and out of the holder and has plenty of adjustment. I was n...
    Cons:
    The swivel mechanism felt a bit weak and took a few attempts to get tight. Probably easier with small hands.

    Quite a distinctive sound

    posted by Ricnz on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great for the emergency kit or in your pocket. This will not be mistaken for a bird call so great if you need to 'call for help in the bush' or just to attract attention. Uses less energy than yelling for help would so you could do it for longer. Three s...
    Cons:
    A neck strap would be useful but easy to attach one to the existing hole.

    Pevent loose batteries shorting out

    posted by Ricnz on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This case so much better that the brittle cases DX supplied 18650 batteries come in. The 18650 batteries rattle in the case and for me that is a plus. I shake my kit bag and can hear my spare batteries are packed in there. Have not tested if they are t...
    Cons:
    Could always be cheaper but I keep buying them :-)

    It works on 230 volts OK

    posted by Ricnz on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Seems to be solid, well made, no sharp edges and mains pins fold flat to allow easy packing for travel. Pretty good value The charger contacts adjusted perfectly to fit my battery. Spring loaded contact pins are great. The slide holding section was tensi...
    Cons:
    No English instructions. No indication of which charge pin is +ve or -ve Had to plug use a multimeter to ID those pins. +ve is ...

    Great value mutimeter

    posted by Ricnz on 11/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    At this price you can buy some spares. Have one in each car and toolbox. Nice large clear display. I have known brand meters and find the look, feel and operation of this one to be very similar to Fluke without the huge investment.
    Cons:
    Test leads were stiff so not expected to last long. Cheap to replace with good ones.

    Good for security work

    posted by Ricnz on 11/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This torch is big, solid and very bright. Tried testing the light output but it overloaded my lux meter on high. Brighter than many car headlights. Memory mode is very useful and necessary. Belt holder seems light duty but it works well. Torch gets wa...
    Cons:
    Have had this torch switch off in use after running 15 minutes. Recommend carrying spare batteries and a backup torch. Curren...

    Thanks DX for verified cell capacity

    posted by Ricnz on 11/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This order just arrived but have purchase many sets of this same model. Was previously keen on the manufacturer claimed 3000mAh version SKU: 26249 but got failures and low capacity.
    Cons:
    They all came in a broken two pack plastic case :-( The remains of the case was still keeping the batteries together so of som...

    Far cheaper & easier than USB camera cables

    posted by Ricnz on 04/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Camera cables were a pain to read the onboard SD card. This SD to usb adapter make it all very easy. Photo management becomes simply a mater of transferring files, something most of us do all the time.
    Cons:
    None at all.

    Power pack for SKU 58695

    posted by Ricnz on 08/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This battery pack solved an issue I had with another DX product. It holds 4 2800 mAh rechargeable NiMh easily without binding in battery slots and provides USB power. The power switch is helpful.
    Cons:
    The usb socket being on a flexible lead may not last but it suits my needs perfectly for now.
