    posted by dukeys on 01/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good build quality, no cheap plastic components, aluminium housing, good quality switch. Very bright light just about as bright as the cree SIPIK (SKU 39585). Zoom function is very good and throws light about 200m easily on 1 AA battery. Flood funct...
    Cons:
    No real cons. I guess if I had to point out a few things that could be improved I would say that the lens is plastic and not gl...

    Works well if soldering holds up

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

    Pros:
    Cheap torch with good light output for general tasks and odd jobs. The body is aluminium and is quite strong should you drop it or drop something on it. The solar panel is the polycrystalline (blue) type so it is more efficient and will last for many years,...
    Cons:
    The compass does not work, but no surprise there. The compass at the back is also the on/off button which is not the best desig...

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

    Pros:
    Great light output. The dual heads make it possible to illuminate both pages of a book at once. The heads can be switched on individually. It has a charging jack which could be used to power the device externally also. Light enough to clip on a small book w...
    Cons:
    None really If anything it is too bright but I guess you can just use one light.

    Pros:
    Highly accurate measurement. Can switch between inches and mm. Comes with a sturdy padded case and spare battery. Made from stainless steel. Good build quality

    ok for the price

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

    Pros:
    I own an original Powerball hand held gyroscope so I can compare it to that. It is slightly heavier than the original but I like this fact as it gives a better workout. The build quality is good enough considering the price. I found it as easy to start as ...
    Cons:
    Its is a little bit harder to start it without the string than the original. The LED's are red and not blue like the original. ...

    Very blue/white light output,(not really a con though). Angle of illumination is about 60 degrees so will not light up a whole...

    Pros:
    Good Build quality compared to other keyboards. The keys have a nice feel to them. The keyboard is a nice size and is very light. Mouse is a good size and nice shape, not too small as I have big hands! Good reception distance and response, mouse and keyboa...
    Cons:
    The mouse has no auto off feature but does go into a power saving mode when not used. It has a switch at the bottom though so y...
