    Not as bright as it could be

    posted by Stokie on 06/14/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Not real parachute cord, but good enough for the job as a cord that "by-the-way" happens to glow.
    Cons:
    Not real parachute cord, and far from true glow in the dark cord. Left in the sun (>1000 lux) for a few hours, lumination weak ...

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

    Pros:
    Nice compact device with really clear image and good strong illumination from the LED. Great little product which has been fun for the kids just starting in science projects.
    Cons:
    For an adult a little too small to use for a long time, ok for smaller hands. Bigest problem is the 60x to 100x focus wheel whi...

    Simplies battery choice

    posted by Stokie on 04/07/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have opted to standardise my choice of battery, I've selected AA and AAA. Also I have a smart charger BC900, which only takes those two batteries. This and the C size convertor allow me to maintain a standard stock of AA's yet covers both C and D size, gr...
    Cons:
    None really, have had some jams will certain rechargeable batteries which are a little fatter than others and have gotten stuck...

    Does the Job well

    posted by Stokie on 02/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's small handy little gadget to throw in the laptop case, take no room and weighs nothing. Charges all of my other gadget from my laptop. Why carry different chargers when one will do.
    Cons:
    Really need to find a way to keep the other heads from getting lost within the abyss of my laptop case. Does not have a head fo...

    Why not

    posted by Stokie on 01/12/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As a glasses wearer I regularly need to clean my glasses. Trouble is I don't always have my case and cloth with me. And frankly my shirt or towel really don't do the job. No with this set I can have cloths all over the place and never need go hunting for my...
    Cons:
    What cons how can you possible have any cons, it's a cloth, you wipe stuff off your glass's.

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

    Pros:
    As a gadget geek a laser is a must have, as a beginner with lasers then this seems as good a start as any. Hope to try to use this to etch holograms will try and see if it's powerful enough. It's great for pointing to star constellations the beam is clearly...
    Cons:
    Only that even at this rating it's a bit of a hazard treat it with respect. The hazard being the reflection into one's own eyes...
