    ~ Fantastic AA & AAA Battery Cases! ~

    posted by ddublu on 01/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These little cases are strong, well designed battery cases. AA atteries fit nice & tight, not loose at all. AAA batteries (will hold 5 of them) will rattle very slightly but not a problem whatsoever. The hook-together hinges were a nice surprise & a...
    Cons:
    Can be a little bit difficult to open, though this is actually a plus, as this keeps them from spilling out of the case. Once y...

    ~ Needs Further Quality Control Measures ~

    posted by ddublu on 01/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is right, they are easy to read with their contrasty green/black dial & are compact & portable. They have a convenient band on the back to help facilitate fastening on to various pieces of equipment. They look very cool too!
    Cons:
    3 of the 5 we received have air bubbles in them (1 has a huge bubble) & not so much as one of ours will work, no matter how...

    ~ Great Value & Acceptable Functioning ~

    posted by ddublu on 01/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very affordable & apparently quite sturdy enough. The needle is very steady & moves to magnetic north smoothly & reliably.
    Cons:
    Not liquid filled, for those who desire such, though this is not really a problem for us.

    ~ Fantastic Tiny Device! ~

    posted by ddublu on 01/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This great little marvel comes with batteries & is easy to set & even easier to read the date or time in a dim or darkened room. The illumination is plenty bright enough & the focus great. Very lightweight & likely plenty sturdy enough for y...
    Cons:
    This product does poorly as a keyring in a pocket, as the settings easily change around as the buttons are pressed. Other than ...

    ~ Reliability Problems Remain ~

    posted by ddublu on 01/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Power sipping & theoretically the longest lasting light bulbs available at a decent price comparatively. Bulb runs quite cool, no burn danger to skin. This bulb gives pleasing cool white light to read or work with. 2 of these bulbs in torchaire lamps il...
    Cons:
    Reliability is still an issue, as one of the 4 bulbs purchased already (in the very first hour of operation) has half of its LE...

    ~ A Good Little Investment ~

    posted by ddublu on 12/27/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A well-made, power-sipping & handy flashlight! Feels good in your hand, the clip is quite sturdy & the wristband is strong. It's versatile with its "High > Low > Slow Strobe > Fast Strobe" modes. The "high" mode's 3-watt...
    Cons:
    As another DX customer has noted: one strobe setting is plenty, the low one probably being the choice of preference. Consider r...

    ~ Another Functional & Affordable LED Bulb ~

    posted by ddublu on 12/26/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Puts light right on target where it is needed at a penny-pinching energy usage. The bulbs run quite cool, barely getting warm & seem great so far, just like the 36 LED bulbs we already have from DX. The price is incredible when compared to similar produ...
    Cons:
    These don't seem to put out that much more light than the 36 LED models, really. These bulbs seem to be sensitive to voltage sp...

    ~ Cool, Durable & Lightweight Chopsticks ~

    posted by ddublu on 12/26/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Reusable time & time again. Easily cleaned & portable. No SO2 that are on many disposable wooden chopsticks like you commonly receive in restaurants. Sustainability!
    Cons:
    Perhaps it's just me, but the ends seem rather slippery & slick, not near as easy to use like restaurant wooden/bamboo ones...

    ~ Acceptable Earbuds ~

    posted by ddublu on 12/26/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Visually pleasing & lightweight, these little earbuds fit our ears well. There are 2 pair of alternate ear pieces to ensure a good fit to your ears, one set for me & the other set for my wife (we got 2 pair of these). The sound quality is fair, espe...
    Cons:
    A bit slim on build quality, in my opinion, though with resonable care then there should be a fair life to these very affordabl...

    ~ A So-so Torch ~

    posted by ddublu on 12/26/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Portable, easy to light & refillable, this torch can tuck away just about anywhere. It has a plastic cap that pulls off when you want to use it (it's tethered to the lighter too) & it has a sliding lock to keep it from lighting when you don't want i...
    Cons:
    Mine runs well for 5 seconds, starts to flutter & then promptly extinguishes time & time & time again. The lock sli...
