    Handy little lights

    posted by VillageIdiot on 09/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These things are great. I got every colourand they all still work 100%. I gave five away to friends and family and kept the chrome and blue one for myself. Good for looking around a house at night and stuff. Switches interchangeable between the old and new ...
    Cons:
    Not as bright as the new version. Head doesn't unscrew, only the tail.

    Noice.

    posted by VillageIdiot on 08/20/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing works great. It fits tons of 2 x cr123 flashlights and 1 x 18650's, it'll fit a 2AA maglite really well head down, and I even squeezed my spiderfire c-r8 into it. It's nice and stretchy and will stretch to a reasonable size. It's pretty rugged, ...
    Cons:
    There's not really many cons a holster can have, and this holster has none of 'em. It hasn't broken or anything, and everything...

    As good as I expected =D

    posted by VillageIdiot on 08/20/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fit and finish is really good. O-rings, lubed threads, flawless anodisation. Aeshetically, really good - looks more expensive than what it is with the tactical bezel. Perfect size - just big enough to fit your palm (well, my palm anyway) Good output wit...
    Cons:
    Came with no instructions as to battery polarity (it turns out it's positive towards the head) Difference between high and lo...

    good tripod

    posted by VillageIdiot on 07/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing worked great straight away and I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Painfully simple to use. YOU HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY DIM TO THINK OTHERWISE. =P Works great with attachments (my camera and camcorder, universal clamp sold on this website) Wi...
    Cons:
    None really. I might have preferred it if the legs were a tiny bit wider but it's fine as-is.

    Nice pocket torch

    posted by VillageIdiot on 07/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -This thing provides all the light you will need for looking in your trunk for something, looking at your engine if you break down, lighting up a room or cupboard, any normal task. -Easy as all hell to use. Circuit board and spring are cheaply-built but wo...
    Cons:
    -If you want a 1000-lumen uber torch with great throw, this is definitely not for you. -Feels a little light and cheap. -Tiny...

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

    Pros:
    -Batteries fit in snugly and charge well. -LED indicator is cool -Simple and compact -Lulz at the Engrish instructions. -Fit my adapter nicely and the outlet folds up for travel or whatever -Awesome price for what it is!
    Cons:
    -Looks... well... cheap -Engrish instructions. I don't really need any instruction to use a battery charger so it's ok I suppos...

    really good magnets

    posted by VillageIdiot on 05/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    So many uses! They can be used as fridge magnets, extending batteries and chargers, holding stuff in place, killing boredom sitting at your desk, and plenty more... Amazingly strong. You cannot get two apart, I swear. You need a really steady hand and some...
    Cons:
    They break so easily! Be really gentle. They snap into pieces from impacts.

    Good batteries. Great price.

    posted by VillageIdiot on 05/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These things are really great. When I got them I was amazed at how small they were!! God they're tiny! When I put them in a DX 200mW red (sku.11315) they work tops. They look good too, I like the green colour =] I had trouble finding CR2s at local shops, a...
    Cons:
    They don't have a fancy brand like Energizer, Duracell or Sanyo. My friends think they look dodgy. They're wrong :D

    Good matches! Unbeatable price.

    posted by VillageIdiot on 05/21/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All the match boxes I got were full to the brim, almost so much that it was difficult to open! Thumbs up. All matches lit REALLY quickly and easily. Red ones you buy at local shops require a little bit of effort but no! Also tops. These are perfect for ...
    Cons:
    Packaging and match boxes themselves were clearly made from low-quality paper/cardboard, but it's okay as long as they don't fa...

    Good charger. Nothing special, but works fine.

    posted by VillageIdiot on 05/21/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It worked straight out of the box. Fits every plug type there is. Sockets slide in and out with relative ease. I like how you need to hold a button and then slide the sliders to get your sockets out. I've tried it with every kind of plug, and it works t...
    Cons:
    The simple cardboard box with no markings on it was scuffed and dented. It was okay though... the product was in good condition...
