    Works quite well.

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

    Pros:
    Looks almost exactly like the OEM power adapter, save for some trademarked insignia. Extremely low ripple as shown by my test-equipment, and it supplies a solid 12.0V even under load. Costs less than an OEM adapter. It even came in a retail package with a ...
    Cons:
    The Wii-side connector rattles on mine, I don't know if all of them do this, but I'm assuming it's just a defect. It still func...

    Great low-cost tri-wing screwdriver

    Pros:
    Cheapest I've seen these, including shipping costs. They're magnitized, but that's not really a problem, as no Nintendo products which use tri-wing screws use magnetic media. Steel tip appears very resiliant and resistant to damage.
    Cons:
    The plastic handle was a little rough. The flash/burrs from the casting process are to blame for this.

    Great cells. Will buy more

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

    Pros:
    Low-cost. They're 18650 cells. Other places sell these for over $10 each. Can also be used to re-cell laptop batteries. They last just as long as my name-brand cells. I use them in my Spyder II 300mW Green laser.
    Cons:
    After fully charged, some read at 4.2V, which is still within tolerance. The DX stock number sticker can be hard to peel off.
