    10W G4 halogen low-current replacement

    posted by wrestling on 03/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Low-current alternative to battery operated systems such as sailboats. Fits well in terms of size, light colour and connector most lamps fitted with G4. Being polarity specific enables me to automatically switch this off when reversing polarity to light up...
    Cons:
    Polarity specific, may be an issue on some applications.

    Power-saving for boating

    posted by wrestling on 03/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Low current consumption, approximately according to dx spec Good light output, comparable to 10w incan bulb. Polarity specific -> can mount white and red lights in same housing and have colour changing swithc for the whole boat interior lighting. Warm...
    Cons:
    Looks like simple circuit design of 3*leds with Vf and a resistor limiting the voltage/current. Should not be an issue even whe...

    Extended length for Galaxy Tab2

    posted by wrestling on 02/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Much more usable charger cable length than the original 1m lenght. Enables using the tablet while charging. Connector form and fit close enough to original, no notable play or eccessive tightness.
    Cons:
    None so far - for sure the cable could be more flexible, but it is as stiff as the original one. In some occations 2m can be a ...

    Perfect floatind wrist band for compact waterproof cameras

    posted by wrestling on 10/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Adjustable wrist band, fits snugly to my bare wrist, but adjustable enough to allow other wrist sizes and wet suit * Good length, camera readily at hand, but not too long to drag behind * Floats my Olympus tough TG-810on surface level, but not too eccessi...
    Cons:
    None really - if you want to be picky, the black shiny ends of the orange float look a bit cheap - most other camera hardware i...

    posted by wrestling on 10/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Fits perfectly to Samsung Galaxy Tab2 - 3G model. * The rotation feature is quite useful * all side-buttons & speakers are accessible through case cut-outs
    Cons:
    * The elasic band closure mechanism is not the smartest design available - would like to see a magnet closure. However, the ban...

    good enough if not genuine

    posted by wrestling on 09/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap! In northern EU, street price is >2x dx price. Package seems like genuine, no obvious reason to suspect anything else. After some weeks of using these blades, I may not be able to tell any difference to original blades bought locally.
    Cons:
    No cons - only shipping time may be an issue if you run out of blades today ;-)

    Cheap but occationally bursting

    posted by wrestling on 08/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and plenty of balloons, nice to assemble different figures for your kids. Some instructions included, so you are not left alone with only your imagination on what to do with these
    Cons:
    Reliability, I seem to "bang" 1 out of every 3 balloons or so when inflating or assembling.

    Nice and cheap - but unreliable clicky

    posted by wrestling on 02/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Still plenty of light for the price - when it works.
    Cons:
    Now with longer experience some cons start appearing. 1 - as others have also pointed out, eats batteries like candy - don't ha...

    Fits also AKS74U- with some rework

    posted by wrestling on 02/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits perfectly to AK standard siderail and based on short experience seems to stay true.
    Cons:
    Needs minor mods for some shorter AK variants, such as AKS74U. The original rear sight is further back preventing this mount fr...

    Great bang for the buck

    posted by wrestling on 03/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and powerful. I find the modes useful - especially the low power is low enough to read in a car without distracting others. Fast strobe good for gaining attention while biking. Even though the pictures suggest the tail-clicky would protude beyond the...
    Cons:
    The lanyard holes have slight burrs on the inner side - could wear your lanyard out sooner than you thought. Should be easy to ...
