  • A waste of metal

    posted byFestus on 12/04/2016

    Solid build, but poor design. Had potential, but so many missed opportunities. Screwdriver doesn't really exist. Slot doesn't have any obvious function - blunt. Bottle opener requires holding onto the blade. Apparently it peels carrots - really? -... Read more

  • Inexpensive, dual outlets, small but powerful

    Most small 2 - 3Amp USB car chargers fail to charge my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 while it's being used for navigation, however this one does. It won't if another device is added to the second USB port, however if both devices aren't continually turned... Read more

    Impression: Very good,More actual Amps than most small USB chargers;

  • Max Amp limit probably over-rated

    posted byFestus on 10/09/2015

    Double USB outlet, indicator light and small size makes this a handy standby charger to keep in the car, especially for the price. However, measuring the current while charging and running an iPad 2 and a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 showed a maximum of... Read more

  • Handy at home and when traveling

    posted byFestus on 02/24/2015

    Smaller than expected - very easily packed. Comes with a small soft bag and instructions. Fits most global AC wall sockets with maybe a few very uncommon/out-dated exceptions. Sliders work easily without sticking and lock when extended. Fuse with... Read more

    Impression: Very Handy, and not only for travel;

  • Great sound, poor instructions (esp. FM tuning)

    posted byFestus on 12/21/2014

    Excellent sound and features for the size and price, with Bluetooth, TF Card, audio cable and FM tuner source options! Charges via any USB outlet. While the audio quality is great for the size and price - there's no really deep bass that a more -... Read more

  • Could be handy when repairing electrical fittings.

    posted byFestus on 09/27/2014

    Inexpensive, small and self-powered. Only able to figure out some features using Google Translate, so not sure how useful it might be or how to use it without risk of harming myself. Need a good English translation before I risk doing any repairs... Read more

  • Handy, but be careful in use

    posted byFestus on 08/23/2014

    Compact, well made and handy when travelling, camping, in the car or at a picnic. Finely constructed, doesn't leak if pulled up tight to full height. Best washed retracted, so water can flow completely over loose rings. Relies on rings being a fit... Read more

  • Handy for travellers or emergency use

    posted byFestus on 08/23/2014

    Several tools on the one small metal 'card'. So small and thin, it could easily be slipped into a wallet along with credit cards, or left in a backpack for emergencies. Black finish scrapes off in use, revealing shiny stainless metal. Cutouts and... Read more

  • Simple but well made slip-on cover

    posted byFestus on 08/20/2014

    Two part construction - a softer rubbery main case with a slightly firmer shiny plastic border. Fits easily but securely over a Note 2. All cut-out holes have bevelled edges and align perfectly. Slight matt finish to the rear side offers grip and... Read more

  • All phablet covers should work like this!

    posted byFestus on 08/20/2014

    Flexible plastic cover slips easily over the rear and sides of a Note 2. Cutouts in the case align well with lenses, mike, sockets, S-pen and speaker. Note 2's on/off and volume buttons are covered by this case, however the case has 'buttons' into... Read more

    Impression: Clever design, useful and inexpensive;
