4.0 out of 5 stars All said and done, a very good buy for a low price, July 23 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
All said and done, a very good buy for a low
price - if - used for switching LOW power items
such as small cooling fans or a warning alarm.

If you are not savvy with electrical components
you may be dumbfounded how to use this switch.

When it arrived by mail, it was in a plastic shipping
bag. Inside was the switch in a very thin white paper
box with no printing of any kind and no instructions.
Its amazing that it arrived undamaged.

This switch will turn something on or turn it off,
depending on which contact point you choose.
There is a choice of a N/O (normally open)
switch that will close when the temperature you
select with the rotating dial is reached.
The item you want to control will be turned ON.

The N/C (normally Closed ) switch will turn the item
you want to control OFF when the temperature you
select with the rotating dial is reached.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Head Mounted LED Lite for Hands FRee, July 17 2014
This is a light fine and solves an application working
on Computer towers. The two LED's are bright
enough to flood the work area and you can dim
the light to further battery life or cut glare.
This is a no brainer purchase if you need both hands
free and a good source of light
Took awhile to arrive but worth the wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Bench Tool for Light Weight Objects, July 9 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
For the price, you get a lot of gizmo to work with.
The reason I didn't give it 5 stars. The magnifier/LED light is loose on the goose neck.
Strategically place tape for added support cured that issue.
The magnifier is adequate and the LED is bright enough to light things up if you
pop in three AAA batteries.
Patience is required to make all the adjustments for positioning the alligator clips.
All in all, a very good bench tool for light weight objects in need of soldering.
You can't go wrong unless you are the type who expects top of the line
merchandise at budget prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as good or better than the OEM Battery, July 6 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
5 stars because it was delivered in a timely manner and well
packed to withstand the postal workers "handling."
This replacement battery is for an older LG lap top
and it performs as one might expect of a new Lithium Ion battery.
It holds it's charge, the one it replaced did not.
The maximum run time I could expect from this laptop with the
battery it had when new is 2.2 to 2.4 hours depending on tasks
This battery does that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Think Twice before you buy:, June 11 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
Gave this item one star for really good packaging and timely delivery but that is were it ends.
I "never" want to write a bad review but this purchase wasted my $25.00.
Bought this to help reduce screen glare so I was happy when it arrived.
With great anticipation, I started with a spotless laptop screen as directed and followed all instructions to the letter.
My best efforts "could not" get this piece of plastic to install without massive amounts of bubbles. I got so frustrated after many tries I crumpled it up and tossed it into the recycle bin. It also became clear, it would not reduce glare.
The Universal 15.6 Anti-Glare Laptop Screen Protector is NOT worth the return postage and the hassle of requesting a refund.
You, are the only reason I bothered to do this much.

Powerful External Remote Amplified GPS Antenna Receiver for Garmin Nuvi

1.0 out of 5 stars Plug is too large for Garmin Nuvi 2555LMT, May 27 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
This product is listed for Garmin Nuvi. To me, that says
it is compilable with ALL Nuvi models. This antenna will not fit into the socket on a Nuvi 2555LMT.
That is why just one star.
The antenna socket or input jack is located on the side of the traffic receiver on the power cable. The plug on this antenna is larger than the input jack. Will Need to get an RMA and return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kill A Watt is an easy 5 star, March 16 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
The Kill A Watt meter is very easy to use, and performs as advertised. I gave it five stars because of the ease of use and what it reveled So far it has paid for itself by identifying power usage at duplex receptacles using way more kilowatt hours than I thought, In this case, a 35 inch TV and all the associated paraphernalia. Needless to say I do not leave tt on unless I'm actually watching it. No more using the TV as a radio. The Kill A Watt monitor also motivated installing 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs were the light is on more than 12 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery Tender is a great value, March 16 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
Although I have ways to safely charge S.L.A. batteries, I purchased the Battery Tender because of its size and advertised specs.
I'm happy to tell you that so far, it performs properly. It comes with two types of good quality cables, one with mid. sized alligator type battery clips the other with 5/16 ring type wire terminals. Both have a 2-Way Flat Molded Connectors with a 7.5 amp. blade fuse and holder within 6 inches of the battery terminal.
I use it to maintain charge of two 12V 33 A/H AGM batteries on a limited duty cycle when the solar panels cannot.
So far no problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery Tender cable performs as advertised, March 16 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
This cable has polarity identification - + on the connectors, is awg16 wire and appears well made especially compared to so called bargain cables. Comes with a 7 amp blade fuse in the holder and has a connector cover to protect against shorting if it falls in the wrong place when exposed. All in all, its worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice panel for the price, March 16 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
The two panels I received were well protected by the packaging and arrived in good shape. Its important to understand in most cases, you get what you pay for. The ALEKO panel performs as advertised and in my opinion is good value. I have the two panels sitting in a window on a fourth floor apartment and do not get nearly as much sun light if placed outside and facing up towards the sky.
The two panels wired in parallel have the potential to deliver approx. 2000ma under ideal circumstances. I get 200 to 400 ma in the window location.
If I put these panels into the weather I would need to do some weather proofing at the power output and use a strain relief on the output conductor. I'm not sure how these panels would stand up to outside exposure but would probably be fine during late spring to early fall. Forget it during winter. Bring then in doors.
