    Nice case fits perfectly, good protection

    posted by slimgym on 07/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this because I have case sky 173581 which works very well to cover the screen but can leave the screen vulnerable to scratching if something gets between the cover and screen. So bought this lightweight padded case to stop that happening. Not a lot t...
    Cons:
    None really. Could use it without the other case, except would be worried about the mini when in use then!

    Easy to use, does the job well

    posted by slimgym on 07/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Just works, does the job, nice rubberised cable feels like an original. Elongated USB plug. Charges quick enough. Bought one to put in my travel bag after we went on holiday with plenty of USB adaptors but no Nokia charger. Can then use in a car or hotel.
    Cons:
    Nothing to say really. Just works. Maybe the cable is a bit long, 30cm would be enough, like the apple ones. Perhaps strain rel...

    Nice cheap case to protect the back

    posted by slimgym on 02/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this and a few other cases for the iPad mini as it was pretty cheap. It's fairly thin rigid plastic that covers all the back and all edges. The iPad clips into it so it sits a little proud of the screen, so if you were to put it down on the screen si...
    Cons:
    I probably wouldn't want to throw it in a bag with just this case; I'd use SKU 173581 which I also have. This is a similar rig...

    Works fine, same as the apple kit

    posted by slimgym on 02/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this to use in my armoury of travel kit when abroad so rather than taking a laptop I could back photos up on the iPad. It works fine, exactly the same as the Apple kit but a fraction of the price.
    Cons:
    Probably an apple restriction but it needs all photos to be in the \DCIM folder and the USB port will not take a memory stick b...

    Really nice cover-all case, perfect job to keep the pad pristine

    posted by slimgym on 01/10/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really like these cases. A rigid plastic back case which the mini snaps into, much better than those which have straps over the front screen. Opening the lid wakes the device and closing it puts it to sleep. The front cover will fold totally behind the back...
    Cons:
    None that I can see.

    Good bulb, fitted fine, bright

    posted by slimgym on 01/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These bulbs are nicely made and look to have several forward facing LEDs and some around the side. Note the LED colour is red, so these are no good for "reverse" or "turning" bulbs.
    Cons:
    For some inexplicable reason my car uses this type of bulb as a front daytime running light or marker light when the headlights...

    Nothing to fault, easy to use, great price

    posted by slimgym on 12/31/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works really well, I bought it to find out the very hot temperature of my wood burner, but I've been using it on everything to see what the temperature is! A useful item for the tool box!
    Cons:
    Perhaps only that it comes with no battery, but there's space for one in the POS plastic. Not a great problem, clearly says no ...

    Nice translucent soft case

    posted by slimgym on 12/14/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a nice squishy style translucent case that covers the sides, top and most of the bottom with three separate cut-outs for the ear, speakers and lightning connector. The case allows the rear and sides of the phone to be seen but it's translucent and n...
    Cons:
    I have the Apple D-A adaptor (to the old sync connector for audio out and control in a car kit) and because the bottom has the ...

    Excellent food probe, easy to use, useful to have

    posted by slimgym on 12/13/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have one of these and find it invaluable in the kitchen to check food is properly cooked. It is just that final check in your cooking time that everything is well.
    Cons:
    Perhaps if you are wearing oven gloves I find it hard to press the power on button as the buttons are almost recessed in the fl...

    This is a nice cover all case that fits snugly

    posted by slimgym on 12/13/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a nice snug fitting case that covers the sides and back but leaves the controls uncovered. The case is slightly thinner where the controls are so you don't have to dig deep to operate them. The case leaves the bottom uncovered so if you have the D-A...
    Cons:
    Perhaps if you are a bling person the fact this case covers the back and sides of the phone it under-states the phone rather th...
