2 PACK NB-4L Replacement Battery + Battery Charger&hellip by eforcity
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
I chose this rating as, overall, you are getting value for your money. The charger is very good, but the batteries are not anywhere near the stated capacity. I won't add any more to the 19 previous reviews that indicate this is a good package deal, but one person stated that he didn't think the batteries were any better than the Canon batteries. I certainly agree with that...for such a cheap price, and batteries made in China, you might be suspicious that the batteries would not be as labelled. I would like to add to these reviews some actual,measured, data on these batteries.
First, the charge: The batteries were put through a couple of charge/discharge cycles first at a reasonable… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Noisy Kettle, Jan. 22 2013
I can only second what the previous review said. My comments are the same, especially regarding the noise!
Just as the water starts to boil, it squeals as loud as you would expect a whistling kettle to do. Once the water starts boiling the sound goes away.
I've had it apart looking for anything loose in the base that would vibrate as the first vapour bubbles form, but everything looked tight and well designed. I can only speculate that there is a design flaw somewhere above the kettle base, and just wanted to make you aware that the previous poster didn't just get a "lemon". It's likely the kettles are all the same - NOISY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Installed on Le Pan II, Jan. 19 2012
Designed for iPad, but works extremely well on "Le Pan II" tablet also. First you will need to trim about 1/2" off length and width, and this was easily done with a paper cutter giving very clean cut straight edges. Alternatively, since there is a protective peel-off sheet on both sides of the film you can mark the cut line with a fine marker and cut with scissors. The large pre-punched hole for the iPad camera was cut off as it was on the wrong edge for the Le Pan tablet. Lay the film (all three layers before having removed anything) on the tablet, mark location of camera and light sensor, and cut out with scissors.
Ensure your tablet surface is perfectly clean using the wipes… Read more
