    Impressive for its size

    posted by Sherlock3 on 05/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little torch throws out a lot of light for its size. It is just as bright as other torches that I have that are the same size but claim more lumen - and it is cheaper. The switch has a solid action and overall quality and construction is good consideri...
    Cons:
    Would have been happier if the lens was made of glass instead of plastic, but for the price I was not expecting a glass lens

    I am impressed

    posted by Sherlock3 on 05/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This cloth works better than I expected. Compared to other cleaning cloths for lenses, touch screens etc. this is the best I've found. At first I thought the price was a bit high, but considering how well it cleans, I now think it is worth the money. Other ...
    Cons:
    None so far

    Handy and surprisingly bright

    posted by Sherlock3 on 04/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is very cheap and performs better than I expected for the price. When you switch it on it goes always to high mode, then, when you half-press the switch it goes low mode and if you half press again it goes to strobe. Fits nicely in your pocket you you ca...
    Cons:
    Quality of tail switch could be better - maybe I just got a bad one but sometimes it jams in the off position. However, I greas...

    A versatile adapter - good quality

    posted by Sherlock3 on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is quite a versatile adapter - it accepts a variety of plugs - it fits snugly into wall socket. Construction is quite solid but materials could be better.
    Cons:
    I only gave it four stars for quality because the plastic the housing is made of feels cheap and the prongs are not the best q...

    Great Price - good multimeter

    posted by Sherlock3 on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is good multimeter for diagnostic testing on your vehicle, or if you are just starting out with hobbies like electronics. Best price I've seen for entry level multimeter. Quality of casing is pretty good for the price. Easy to use. Quality of leads is ...
    Cons:
    At this price there are no cons - obviously not intended for professional use

    A must have for electronics hobbyists

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great little tool - better than I expected for the price. You can adjust it to just about any angle you want. The spring in the crocodile clips are nice and strong. The magnification is strong enough to see all the detail you need to see.
    Cons:
    I am not aware of any cons although it is smaller than I expected, however, it is big enough for my needs

    Good value for money

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A very handy set of tools - a good variety of tips - useful for other things apart from soldering. These tools feel reasonably sturdy and should last a long time if they are not abused. The package they come in has pictures on the back that show what each t...
    Cons:
    The tools are advertised as stainless steel but I do not think they are. The knife tip is not very sharp.

    A good set of tweezers for the price

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    made of stainless steel - cheap price - handy for hobbies that require delicate work - good set of tweezers when used for the purpose they are designed for
    Cons:
    the tips of the T-12 were bent when they arrived. It was easy to bend them back into shape which shows how soft the metal is. t...

    Well worth the money

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap price reverse clicky switches for DIY torches or replacement switch. Solid clicking action. Springs are not soldered on so they are easy to replace if you need to use a shorter spring - you could of course just modify the one it comes with
    Cons:
    spring is too long for my purposes. These are reverse clickies - My personal preference is for forward clicky switches because...

    I'm glad I bought 3 of these

    posted by Sherlock3 on 03/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The consistency is very good - not too thin, not too thick so it is easy to apply. I bought this brand because Yezl make torches and I wanted silicone grease for the O rings on my torches. The containers are filled to the brim and one container will go a lo...
    Cons:
    I am not aware of any cons
