    12DC opareated G5.3 not G4

    posted by ligfries on 01/02/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    When applied to 12 V DC there is a lot of light coming from this very sturdy, strong build light. Compact and strong, very well packaged.
    Cons:
    Connector is of the G5.3 type, not the advertised G4 type. When connected to 12V AC, the light will only use half of the electr...

    Sturdy built but G5.3 NOT G4

    posted by ligfries on 01/02/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A very well constructed little light that feels firm in the hand and gives a bright light. Does not warm up much (luke warm at most). Packaging is excellent and very representable.
    Cons:
    Connector type is G5.3 NOT the advertised G4. If G4 is what you need, find another light. If you have some space, you can squez...

    Great for when it is really cold

    posted by ligfries on 01/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The neoprene is keeping all wind out, while the holes allow a reasonable breathing. I use the mask when cycling at temperatures well below freezing point (minus 5C or colder). By keeping the wind chill out of your face, it makes a massive difference in how ...
    Cons:
    It insulates so well that as soon as temparatures go up (or your excersize intensifies) it can become quite hot. Also it might ...

    straight forward conversion plug

    posted by ligfries on 12/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simple straight forward convertor plug that is simple to apply your US-plugged device in most EU countries. At least in The Netherlands. Just shift it over the pins and it will work. You never need to remove it. Also very well priced.
    Cons:
    None

    Fit for purpose great little device

    posted by ligfries on 12/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to use, bright display and no external power needed. Accuracy is good enough (above 3.5 V). If you need absolute double digit accuracy go for something more expensive, but when 1 digit reliability is enough, this will do the job.
    Cons:
    Power consumption is quite high and non-adjustable. I measured about 20-22 mA irrespective of the measured voltage. Don't leave...

    Great presenter tool

    posted by ligfries on 11/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For a great price you get an easy to use laser pointer that will operate your PC as well during the presentation. The USB stick required for connection is conveniently packed in the pointer. For windows XP no further installation required.
    Cons:
    No user guide and a limited number of control options in hand, but that is in line with what you can expect for this price.

    Reliable thermometer

    posted by ligfries on 11/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Smart little thing that does what it needs to do: tell you the temperature. I need it for the waterproof sensor as I use it on my bicycle (velomobile) to stay informed about the outdoor temperature. Especially I want to know when I am at risk for icy roads....
    Cons:
    Cons are hardly worth noting, but the suction pads are quite weak and I needed to look for alternative ways to fix it.

    Blasting loud horn!

    posted by ligfries on 11/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This horn is the ultimate Human Powered Alarm. A good push and a LOUD sound is heared. On my bike, I use this as the last warning, after the gentle ring, ring and the somewhat louder electronic horn. If in need, this Air Horn definitely attracts attention. ...
    Cons:
    The tube is quite wide, which results in a significant dead volume in the tube. That means that you have to push the plunger qu...

    Great connectors for heavy duty

    posted by ligfries on 11/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These connecters give a very strong, reliable connection. Tight so it will stay connected even under damp and shaky conditions. Biking in poor weather is no longer at risk of losing power to your lamp. Once soldered on the wires you have a good grip on both...
    Cons:
    Nothing.
