4.0 out of 5 stars Save yourself hassle and time with this handy little device, March 6, 2015
This thing works great and it's bound to save a few bucks and a lot of hassle. I tried it on every kind of battery and it works great, no problem. And of course, it doesn't need batteries... because it is powered by the battery you are testing. So if you don't see a display, you know your battery is dead.

One thing about it could be improved: The key to interpreting the voltage is on the back, not on the front where the voltage is displayed. That means that if, say, you test a 1.5v AA battery and it returns a reading of 1.27v, you have to look on the back to see that 1.27v-1.15v means "low power" and less than 1.15v means "replace."

Apart from that minor annoyance, this item works great and has allowed me to clear out a lot of dead batteries that were waiting in my drawer to annoy me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice jeans, but I wouldn't call them "slim" at all., February 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My son is only 9, but his legs are too long for the Levi's size 10s, which fit him snugly at the waist. So I bought this, thinking it would be "slim fit." Folks, this ain't slim... the legs were just a smidge too long, but would have been wearable. The waist was WAY too big. We tried it with a belt, but it was so big it looked silly. Finally went for the 510 Skinny Fit jeans in size 12. They fit, but the legs are really tight. It's not a true jean fit. My son is not oddly fat or oddly thin, so it's strange how much trouble we're having with fit... just be aware that these are more like "regular/husky" than a true slim fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A few tips for assembling this delightful puzzle - no glue needed!, February 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My 9-year-old son and I assembled this easily, taking our sweet time, in a few hours. I think you could do it in about 1-1/2 hours if you put your mind to it. The result was beautiful, and it's now displayed proudly in my son's room, where he looks at it often. (And gets a little hit of geography each time, which pleases me greatly.)

This puzzle has plastic pieces, and it's highly unusual, because each piece is numbered and has an arrow pointing to where the next number in sequence should go. You put it together as a spiral, spiraling up the lines of latitude from Antarctica to the North Pole. You're supplied with a handy stand that has a curved bottom, to rest the puzzle in while you're assembling it. My tip for you is: After each dozen pieces or so, go back and really fix the previous pieces. Hold the globe up to the light so you can see if any piece is out of alignment. Because at a certain point, it becomes nearly impossible to go back and correct the alignment. And as for the very last piece, up at the North Pole -- take your time with that one, because once it's in, there's no adjusting.

I did all the above, and the puzzle turned out perfectly. One final note: the metal stand is very attractive and works perfectly. However, it skids a bit on a surface. I put a little dab of "shoe goo" on the spots where it contacts the surface and that stopped it from skidding. Any kind of silicone adhesive would also work fine. Or you could just hold it when you spin it so it doesn't skid.

A word about the stability of the puzzle: Some reviewers said it required gluing. It most definitely does not, or at least mine did not. Perhaps thanks to my frequent inspection to ensure the surface was flat and all pieces were flush, it's extremely stable and sturdy and we didn't use any kind of adhesive.

Overall: Fun, educational and decorative. You can't lose!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing glamorous to look at, but so comfy, and WOW what it does for your figure, February 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Okay, this doesn't look like a frilly little Victoria's Secret number. But let me tell you, it's not only the most comfortable supportive underwire you'll ever wear -- it also takes YEARS off your shape if you're full-busted. Just having the right support and shaping does wonders for your figure. As an added bonus, the shoulder straps are the only ones I can wear all day without discomfort.

It's critical to get the right size, or it just won't look good and the underwires won't be comfortable. If you're ordering for the first time, you might want to try several sizes, either in person if you can find a store with a full range of sizes, or just order them off Prime and return the ones that don't work for you. Because once you wear this in the right size, there's no going back to other bras.

3.0 out of 5 stars Way too small in the bust, February 21, 2015

Such a cute print, but so tight around the bust despite being the right size everywhere else. I expected better from NYDJ, as they cater to the woman with curves. However, if you are small-busted and love dogs, go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My son LOVES it and it looks great on him. A gift that will last & last., February 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My 9-year-old boy saw this in a store and absolutely fell in love with it. Naturally, I found a better price on Amazon and bought it here. I thought it might look ridiculous on him, as it's so big and he's still a young boy. Actually, gotta hand it to the kid -- it looks great and masculine in a way that is appropriate for a preadolescent boy.

He has been wearing it EVERY DAY for 4 months now, and shows no sign of getting tired of it. He doesn't care that it's a woman's watch, or that it says "Baby" (very faintly) on the front. He feels like a million bucks when he wears it and loves looking at the date and the various other busy functions on the face. I'm also happy to say that this watch seems indestructible so far, because he's far from gentle with it.

So glad I bought this. If you are looking for a masculine style, I recommend you get this all-black version, not the black-and-gold version. We gave that one a shot, but it was shiny, while this one is matte, and the gold highlights gave the watch a very feminine look. It was exchanged for this one, and I think he'll enjoy wearing this tough timepiece this well into his teens, if not beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHREDDING SHOWDOWN! Metal vs plastic claws - Which works better?, February 21, 2015
I received samples of both the metal Cuisinart Shredding Claws and these plastic Kodiak Klaws for evaluation. So I thought I would pit them against each other in a MEAT SHREDDING SHOWDOWN. I'm on a diet that involves lots of lean protein, so I gave the claws a real challenge: A huge pork loin roast. Normally, pulled pork is from a pernil shoulder, or some other juicy, fatty cut. Pork loin is lean, tough and dry, so I figured the claws, and I, would get quite a workout.

In this corner! The CUISINART CMC-262 Meat Pulling/Shredding Claws! They start off strong by making you feel like Wolverine when you hold them. "Snikt!" you will say, imitating the sound of adamantium blades emerging. But when the fun is over, bub, the hard work starts. And it is HARD work, especially with the Cuisinart claws. The soft rubber grip is a very nice touch, but ultimately it's not really ergonomic -- it doesn't fit well in the hand. And that becomes a big issue after a couple minutes, when the cramps set in. And cramps will set in, partly because these blades are too long and there's a lot of wrist effort to keep them in the right orientation. The fact is: These claws shred better than a fork, sure, but that's pretty faint praise. They just don't work that well. The claws sorta tear a swath through the meat without actually shredding it. They're just too thin. And they're not sharp enough to just claw the surface of the meat off. And they're too widely spaced.

However, the Cuisinarts get technical points for their ability to lift and handle huge pieces of meat. I'll be keeping them for manhandling awkward cuts of beef, pork, etc. And, of course, for their impressive Freddy Krueger-like quality. But I won't be using them to shred meat.

Now, in this corner, ladies and gentlemen, the challenger -- The KODIAK KLAWS! Right away you'll notice they're not as much fun to fool around with, unless you like grizzly bear cosplay. But, like their namesake, they're faster and more capable than they appear. They're light -- a big plus when you have pounds of meat to work through. The handle is much more ergonomic and much closer to the shredding blades, a big plus when it comes to transfer of energy. The back of the handle is sort of a hollow waffle pattern, which makes the claws lighter but can be a bit uncomfortable on the fingers after a while.

However, all is forgiven when you start to shred. These guys really do the job. They're much faster, and tear the meat into smaller, properly sized "pulled pork"-style shreds, vs the Cuisinart, which left many large chunks that had to be pulled apart by hand. The design is far more intelligent -- very sharp at the tip to pierce the meat, and wide closer to the handle, to force the fibers apart.

Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner: The Kodiak Klaws! They're cheaper, they're more comfortable to use, they're faster, and in every sense of the word, they SHRED!

Now pass the BBQ sauce!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I received samples of both the Cuisinart Claws and the Kodiak Klaws (identical to other black "bear claw" style shredders) for evaluation. So I thought I would pit them against each other in a MEAT SHREDDING SHOWDOWN. I'm on a diet that involves lots of lean protein, so I gave the claws a real challenge: A huge pork loin roast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calcium that doesn't gag me! Plus the many benefits of magnesium, February 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have tried and tried to swallow the calcium horse pills and I simply cannot do it. Natural Calm was a great find! First, it is pretty tasty. I mix it in plain water and drink it with no difficulty. Second, it combines calcium with magnesium, which helps with absorption and has several other benefits, namely: Magnesium can improve sleep, encourage "regularity," and discourage nighttime (or any time) leg and muscle cramps. Overall, this has done all those things. I'm not sure about its effect on my bones, as I'm not yet old enough to have had a bone density scan, but I like to think it's helping....

One caution: Start slow when you're taking magnesium. Start with a small dose, and work up slowly, lest you find out the hard way exactly how well it gets your digestive system moving. Just a word to the wise....

The set I got had 40 white chips, 20 blue chips, 20 green chips, and 20 red chips. They were OK for my needs, but if you need 5 colors, be aware you might not get 'em.

As for the chips: nothing special, but they do the job -- colors aren't too bright, a little drab, surface is dull.
