    Good quality battery, functional recharger

    posted by wnd256 on 11/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Battery capacity. The battery seems to have approximately the same capacity as the original GoPro battery. - Battery self discharge rate. The battery seems to hold charge reasonably well in cold water (4 °C), roughly as well as the GoPro original. - ...
    Cons:
    - Recharger quality. The prongs seem rather flaky, but have held it so far. Other than that, it's fine. - US plug, but that's a...

    Good but a little buggy GPSr

    posted by wnd256 on 02/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Most of the time acquires a fix in less than a minute. If you use the device often and don't move too far away, gets a fix even quicker. + Accurate (when it works) + Sensitive + Despite the power switch location, I've never accidentally turned the device ...
    Cons:
    - If you haven't used the device for a while, try to acquire a fix in completely different place and haven't uploaded AGPS data...

    Great replacement for the real thing

    posted by wnd256 on 02/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Far cheaper than Nokia original + Holds charge very well (as in low self discharge rate) + Good capacity, unlike with many other replacement batteries
    Cons:
    - None. If I really have to think of something, the package is unnecessarily sturdy.

    it blows (if you're up to it)

    posted by wnd256 on 02/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Flexible nozzle for precision work + Powerful enough for everyday dusting ;-) + Allows you to save canned air for those cases when it's really + Fairly thick but flexible rubber, does't feel like it's going to cruble any time soon + Also doubles as stress...
    Cons:
    - The nozzle may be a bit too wide, pressure isn't enough for fine dust. Squeezing the nozzle with fingers doesn't really help.

    Affordable four-channel fun.

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

    Pros:
    - Affordable. - Four channels (which is also why I picked this model). - Stable flight, solid controls. - Reasonable flight time. - Keeps trim, easy to trim during flight if needed. - Control sensitivity is adjustable. This really helped me to get started.
    Cons:
    - Controls lag a little. - IR trasmitter probably means you're pushing your luck trying to fly this is bright natural light. - ...

    - Eats batteries like popcorn! Well, not /that/ much. - Lens protecting the reflector rattles a bit. - Not exactly cheap but I ...
