    Used to open MacBook Air 2013

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 09/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Exactly as described; a pentalobe screwdriver. I used it to open a friend's MacBook Air 2013. The end of the handgrip rotates, thus you easily hold the screwdriver in place. The grip also has two rubber rings for a better grip.
    Cons:
    No cons.

    Pretty good but black top layer gets damaged

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 05/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The holder on the inside is made from soft silicone plastic, and also covers top and bottom! I haven't found any case that does this. It even nicely covers the power button, which is really necessary with the fragile coating of the iPhone. The iPhone is wel...
    Cons:
    The black top layer will damage around the top and bottom of the spine. It looks like leather, but the black top is sprayed on....

    Pretty good headphone

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 04/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's big enough to fully fit over your ears. It's not too tight. Still comfortable after a couple of hours. Has good enough sound quality for me, very natural without excessive bass or high tones.
    Cons:
    The charge port is not micro-USB but rather a very small bus. The build quality is not rock-solid but okay for the price. Canno...

    Pricier but very good quality so far

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 03/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compared to normal length Lightning cables (such as SKU 163395), the build quality of the connectors is much nicer. And since the connectors are very thin and almost exactly like Apple's own cables, this cable is so small that it could fit in the small chan...
    Cons:
    Even though the cable itself is only 10 cm, it's more than twice the price of lightning cables such as SKU 163395 (100cm).

    Excellent, with varying quality

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 02/10/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's nice to be able to charge your iPhone anywhere. If you're the forgetful type like me, it's very useful to put a charging cable like this one at work, in your car, with your parents, etc.
    Cons:
    One of the three cables I ordered, has a slightly loose connector shield. The other two are fine. So be prepared for a varying ...

    The best, just what you expect from Pisen

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 10/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very, very good battery for my Samsung Galaxy Gio. It's actually slightly better than the 1300 mAh-rated battery that I got with the phone. I can nicely do a full day (8 AM to 9 PM) with this battery on medium usage.
    Cons:
    No cons that I can think of.

    Works fine

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 07/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very small, easily fits in your hand Powered via micro-USB, which is the standard for EU The range seems fine, at least 4 meters indoors; if I move to another room however, the signal breaks
    Cons:
    The plastic cover seems rather flimsy, but since I basically do not move it once installed, this is not a problem

    Also suitable for Samsung Galaxy Gio

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 10/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Also works with the Samsung Galaxy Gio! You can charge your battery without leaving your phone in your hotel room. It has an extra USB connection so you can charge something else as well.
    Cons:
    The battery holder doesn't have an edge, so the battery could fall out. This hasn't happened to me, though. Note that if you ha...

    posted by bvankuik1977 on 03/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very small and easy to put on your keychain, so you have it available whenever you need it. My iPhone 3G its battery is often quickly emptied.
    Cons:
    The USB side does not seem to fit in well. The plastic is too thick. It might damage your USB port. The build quality doesn't s...
