    Worked first time and every time since

    posted by echan101 on 08/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Auto power off. Comes boxed. Actually has a battery internal that charges quickly.
    Cons:
    Feels very light (but not flimsy). Interrupts music with an annoying periodic beep when power is low. Wish it would be a little...

    Short guitar strap

    posted by echan101 on 10/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works as intended, as a guitar strap. The leather end bits hold the guitar nice and tight so its unlikely the guitar will slip out. There's no funny smells and the plastic bits (which tend to be the first thing to break) seem of reasonable quality and st...
    Cons:
    The strap itself seems shorter than other straps. I need to extend it to the longest length and its only just long enough.

    Works even indoors

    posted by echan101 on 10/19/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very small (6.8 x 4 x 2.5 cm). Very light. Very sensitive - it achieves sync even when my BT-308 doesn't. It achieves sync indoors near windows, even under 5 seconds. It actively tracks many more satellites than the BT-308. It uses a nokia battery (BL-4C) a...
    Cons:
    Does not feature an external antenna jack.

    Retractable Micro-USB Cable

    posted by echan101 on 10/07/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works in the Nokia 3120 Classic (data only, does not work with power as expected). It works the same as the CA-101, except it is better since it is retractable. It allows the Nokia 3120 Classic to be firmware upgraded. It allows proper access to all the...
    Cons:
    It is a bit hard to put in and pull out of the Nokia 3120 classic. However this is probably the way micro-USB is meant to work ...

    Simple cheap effective charger

    posted by echan101 on 06/24/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This product extends to a great distance. So pair it up with a car cigarette lighter thing and you can use it as an easy car charger in emergencies. That way you don't need to have multiple bulky cigarette lighter attachments, just change the USB section. G...
    Cons:
    Metal jack is a bit short, shorter than sku.11397. So it may not work with all phones. Depending on the amount of power your US...

    Cute little gyro

    posted by echan101 on 01/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The gyro spins for quite a long time. It lights up like a UFO. The units appear to be able to be stacked as there is a ball and pinion on opposite ends of the gyro but I can't vouch for how well they stack.
    Cons:
    I gave it a 4 out of 5 for the Usefulness, because it makes annoying happy birthday music when spinning.

    Works great with Nokia Wireless Presenter

    posted by echan101 on 01/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It gives me a fairly good range of around 7 metres. It works as expected, and Windows XP recognises the device depending on which USB port I am using. I can use Nokia Wireless Presenter with a Nokia 6120c to control powerpoint and move the mouse around the ...
    Cons:
    The dongle doesn't work in every USB port I've tried. Using a Lenovo X60, it is only recognised in one of the three USB ports -...

    Ideal for babies

    posted by echan101 on 05/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thermometer measures the in-ear temperature of a person in 1 second, making it perfect for babies as you don't want to be waiting ages for a temperature reading, especially if they are sick. It remembers the last 10 temperatures so you can keep a trac...
    Cons:
    The thermometer DOES NOT provide ambient temperature reading, unlike the specifications. This really applies to a different pro...

    Nokia BL-5B Battery Replacement

    posted by echan101 on 04/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The battery is model BL-5B, and so it fits and works well in my Nokia 6120c. It is not hard to remove at all as it is exactly the same size as my genuine Nokia BL-5B. It charges in a very similar manner to my genuine battery and stops charging when full (al...
    Cons:
    It didn't come with a holographic Nokia sticker, although this is probably a good thing as it isn't genuine. The battery life i...

    Small and usually convenient

    posted by echan101 on 03/19/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The device is small and convenient. The USB cap will never fall off because its attached to the cable. It works for Nokia 6120 Classic phones (but note the remark below!)
    Cons:
    It doesn't click in as well as my Nokia wall charger.It doesn't click in as well as my Nokia wall charger. It doesn't work in a...
