3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars better than average convenient sweeper, April 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I haven't used the trimmer yet. I live in Colorado where we get a lot o powder snow and the sweeper works very well for removing snow from a large deck steps and long driveway. So long as it's not wind packed and I get it before the sun turns it into Colorado concrete (when that happens you hack it up in blocks and toss them or build an igloo). Works better than a broom and much better than a shovel. I have a corded version that is much more powerful and much less convenient.
The batteries have a reasonable life but the recharge is quite slow; ~6 hours. If you are going to use this a second battery is pretty much a must but that's $60. For heavy use two batteries would be needed. The unit is nice and light but the plastic seems to be kind of flimsy. When the blown snow gets on the switch it can freeze and make it hard to turn off.
Overall a better than average, convenient, though nor real powerful sweeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 Stars Ok, as a flishlight 4 stars as a wepon light 2 stars., September 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I deducted 1 Star for the most user hostile packaging so far.

The good:
Excellently machined ~1/8 AL.
Setup with flats so that the sections can be "easily separated".
Nice and bright.
Good battery life.

The bad:
Maybe I missed something but this version has only momentary on.
Has two end caps one of which has a momentary on on the flashlight' the other a curly cord with a momentary push button, there is no feasible way to attach the cord to the weapon.
The curly button is ~!/2" diameter and a bit over 1" in length—without modifying how does one attach it?

The ugly:
The CR123 batteries are not real easy to get at a good price.
Kind of a nit but the description doesn't seem very accurate.

Maybe this is strictly intended as a pistol mount with your support hand manipulating the switch?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value almost as good as the Thermapen for <1/2 the price, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The good:
Fast
Accurate
Easy to read
Great value (Not quite as fast or accurate as the Thermapen but costs <1/2 as much)

The bad:
In boiling water test it was slower than the Thermapen and 1° low

The ugly:
Takes a weird battery.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Good: Seals tight, August 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this as critters kept getting in the cat food.
The Good:
Seals tight.
Lid fairly easy to get on tight. (Just turn backward 1/3–1/2 turn to line up lid threads.)
Does a good job of keeping small critters out.

The bad:
Local bear could smell the food and popped the lid off destroying it.
The indents in the side are awkward for handling the container particularly if it is full.

The ugly:
Replacement lid apparently unavailable.
The measure that comes with it is too small to be useful.

I did not expect this to be bear resistant let alone bear proof, but I did hope that it would seal well enough that the bear would not be attracted to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect oven mitts 4 1/2 stars, May 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are real oven mitts not like the KitchCo Silicone Heat Resistant BBQ and Cooking Gloves—to be fair they don't claim to be able to do anything but handle hot food—that are only useful to ~200F.

The good:
Easy to clean.
Comfortable.
Work fine for pans at 400F, I haven't used them on something like a really hot grill grate or my oven at 650F.

The bad:
No loop or magnet so not as easy to store as they could be.

The ugly:
I am a bit dubious about the cloth cuffs. If used in the rain they wick water into the insulating lining making the insulation a potentially dangerous source of steam.

Overall the best of the oven mitts I have seen so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good gadget poor instructions., May 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The good:
Works well over a reasonable distance and completely eliminates camera shake.
Makes a telephoto lens much more useful.

The Bad:
Took too much fiddling to get Android Galaxy 5 to recognize it.

The Ugly:
Instructions written for iPhone not really good for Android.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars, well made but poorly designed and implemented., May 22, 2015
I didn't really believe that these were as difficult to put on as many folks said. They were and the elastic cuff was uncomfortable.

The good:—
Sturdy and overall well made.
Provide a good grip even on snowy or wet things.
Some insulation but not a lot.

The bad:
The cuff was uncomfortable and hard to put on—so I made a cut in the elastic to loosen it.
The gloves are stiff, hopefully they will break in with wear.

The ugly:
The necessity of cutting the cuff elastic of the glove to make them usable.


Opteka BP-SC6000 Ultra High Capacity (6000mAh) Backup Battery Solar Charger with Faster Charging EcoPanel
Opteka BP-SC6000 Ultra High Capacity (6000mAh) Backup Battery Solar Charger with Faster Charging EcoPanel

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars, OK but not real good., May 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had this for about 4 weeks. It has some problems.

The good:
Holds charge well.
Will provide several charges for a smart phone (Samsung G5 Active).
Has an innovative attachment cable with one end fixed with a USB mini and the other with swappable mini and regular USB connectors.
Form factor the same as a smart phone.

The bad:
Useless directions.
The switch that is labeled "test" on the back is actually the on off switch and it will not charge unless the blue LEDs are on indicating that the unit is on.
Solar charge does not seem to work.

The ugly:
The innovative attachment cable seems like a good idea but it is not. You now have three things to loose instead of two with two different cables and two of the three are small.
Packaging is very hard to open.

Not bad for the daily deal price.
