    Cute novelty item for a toothpick user

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This works well if you know how to use it, just play with it a little and you'll figure it out. The build quality is pretty good and it's got a nice, solid feel to it. It's a great way to keep toothpicks in reach and not have them get dirty/dusty or handled...
    Cons:
    It isn't obvious that it you need to use reasonable care when getting a toothpick out.

    DX has better lighters for the same price.

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The novelty value of this lighter is pretty much the only thing I'd recommend about it. It really does look cool and the lighter part does function well. The LED flashlight works OK too. Well, it does work and it works well as a lighter but...
    Cons:
    ...I had to use tape to hold it together. The build quality is pretty miserable. The LED flashlight is extremely dim and defini...

    Great novelty item, works well!

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is pretty reasonable and I think the phone works fine. It's a very unique type of phone and the novelty value alone is worth the price!
    Cons:
    It's awkward and uncomfortable to use AS a phone. The build quality isn't great (but it still works fine). You'll want another ...

    Great necklace with the look of amber

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The necklace does a good job giving you the look and feel of pressed amber or "ambroid". The quality and construction are very sound and the catch is easy to operate.
    Cons:
    Well, ultimately it's cheaply made necklace with plastic beads....

    Great little buy for this item.

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very well constructed keychain/doll that's just perfect as a present for someone who loved Nightmare Before Christmas. The build quality is very solid and it's cute and goofy at the same time.
    Cons:
    Well, it's a little bulky for a keychain if you are a guy who keeps his keys in his pocket. It really doesn't serve a useful pu...

    Great batteries, I love the price!

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These batteries have worked well in the few lights that I have that will take them. I used them in a "hotwire" mini-mag mod and they give a good run time and have been reliable. I use them with sku 39191 and I love them!
    Cons:
    Well, it's not really a con of the batteries themselves, but it's not always easy to find a device that requires 3.7 volts in a...

    Works well, very simple and reliable

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These chargers do work very well, and even if you don't have an outlet for a regular charger you may have an open USB port on your computer. The price is dirt cheap, buying three of these brings them to under $2 each! If you travel with a laptop and you hav...
    Cons:
    The build quality is a little flimsy and the slow charging current makes them really best suited for AAA batteries rather than ...

    Great for actual ear sanitation, very medieval!

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well, these are super cheap when you buy more than one pack (and you NEED to!). They are better than q-tips which just push the gunk back into your ear, this will actually scoop it out. Plus, they are passably medieval (or earlier) if you want something for...
    Cons:
    The horn is fragile, and it also doesn't take to washing with water too well if the water's hot. I've broken a few of these, bu...

    Great batteries, better price!

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These batteries are perfect if you're using a flashlight or other device that will take them. They are slightly taller than a standard 123 cell but I haven't had a problem getting them to fit in every device I have that'll use them. They've been reliable, a...
    Cons:
    Slightly taller than a standard battery. Might be too much voltage for devices meant for a standard 3.2 volt primary lithium ce...

    Very hard to find batteries that are reliable/work

    posted by SirNomad on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These batteries have been seeing frequent use since being purchased nearly a year ago. They work well and hold a charge, and the protection circuit doesn't shut it off under load when I don't want it to, only when it needs to. They hold a charge well in a f...
    Cons:
    The price could be lower, but these are very hard to find batteries!
