Works. Whats bad: froze up once up with 65% humidity and below 60F temperature. The fan bearing / motor has a slightly unpleasant noise. Not a big deal in closets or bathrooms, but may be annoying in small bedrooms.

4.0 out of 5 stars not that bad after a bit of modding, May 13, 2015
I actually found these (Supra Aural) headphones at Wally (9.88+tax). PROS: +lightweight, +affordable. CONS: -cups will not cover the ears (by design). I think most people would find it that wearing cheap headphones will have some discomfort. For instance cups are pressing ear lobes or there is sweating because of cheap mass production materials. The solution to both is to add a piece of cotton fabric from a discarded sock on top of the cups to add comfort. But the problem of how to wrap the ankle part of the sock on the cup, because both the Left and Right cup has it's own wire attached to it. The solution is to forcefully pull out one of the sliders (pick L or R) with its corresponding cup from the headband assembly. Don't try to remove cup from slider part, as it wont pop out, hard to remove screws hold cup in slider. Then slide 2 sock ankle parts in place. Finally re-assemble with headband, adding tape on the slider to prevent it from being too loose. Apply heat and bend the headband part outwards to increase radius and thereby reduce pressure on ears. There are some headphones that covers the entire ear lobe, but they are way larger in size and price (aka Circumaural; ellipsoid earcup).

5.0 out of 5 stars confidence inspiring but also expensive, April 29, 2015
Very solid. It would be nice if manufacturer or seller could include a 16 mm or 5/8 masonry drill bit for same sales price. There is a also smaller product by Oxford, the OF439 BruteForce, which uses same kind of bolts as Abus anchor, but the Oxford brand uses only 2 bolt to hold it to the anchor secured against the floor. If Abus could offer a scaled down to 2/3rd size model using 4 bolts of 1/2 inch size, then that would already been have been plenty of good.

3.0 out of 5 stars awesome product, but had a leak, December 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really liked this product, but unfortunately received bottle that leaked. Refund was promptly provided. The product is actually quite simple. It is a 110V AC electrode heater with thermostat KSD 301 (70 Celsius) to disconnect heating when max temp is reached. The KSD 301 actually fits through the neck of a regular hot water rubber bottle so I will do a little bit of experiment to see if I can pull wires through a drilled hole in the plug and solder up thermostat and electrodes and hot glue and crimp sock and then carefully twist the plug closed. Would be same thing but with about 20% more water in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars What is inside of the XP400W, November 23, 2014
This review for the XP400W model (that has no work light). PROS: +small form factor, +easy carry, +robust AGM type battery. CONS: -the 20A fuse is soldered instead of replaceable, -the 5Ah battery is on small side, -slanted outlet face prevents the use of many 12V to USB car adapters ** I decided to make the XP400W more dedicated for iPad / iPhone / laptop use by getting rid of the jump cables (use 8mm and 10mm wrenches to open terminal lugs) and hacksaw the side wings off. To my dismay I discovered that all of my 12V to USB adapters had a faceplate and could not be pushed in sufficiently for center terminal (+) to reach the terminal in the receptacle. I sacrificed a cigarette lighter Y-adapter and soldered it to the connection points inside. The female part then hang outside for plugging in USB adapter. The firmly soldered 20A fused was replaced with fuse holder while the chassis was open.

Battery info: WP7-12(28W) T-Z 12V 5AH / 20HR / Kung Long Batteries Industrial / Max current 2.1 A / Non spillable, Rechargeable Valve Regulated Lead-Acid Battery /Constant Voltage Charge

4.0 out of 5 stars Right size recorder for notes. The key beep is super annoying but can be turned off., November 11, 2014
Right size. Has A-B loop feature. Small enough to fit in shirt pocket without sticking out. Mic is on top side. Although NOT recommended, the recording of a face to face discussion the without other person knowing it is possible from shirt pocket location because of the mic position on top and recorder is not visibly sticking out. The DVT1100 although very light is a little bit too heavy side for shirts made of thin material. The RED recording indicator is perfect. Solid RED is recording. Blinking RED is recording suspended but can easily be resumed. Separate and smaller button press for stop recording (=good). It seems hard to make any mistakes with this recorder. Easy to verify recording has started and is ongoing. External MIC can be connected for better directional use, such as lecture in auditorium. ** WORST feature: the manual that came with the retail package was absolutely useless. Search for DVT1100 on the internet to read the PDF manual. Key beep ON/OFF setting is explained on page 27.

5.0 out of 5 stars bicycle saddle flopping fixed with this affordable seat clamp, September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The $5.29 including shipping was awesome. The product appears to be of trustworthy quality. After installation the discovery that the bolts ends protrude some 1/8 to 1/4 inch further out than with the old clamp, but I'm sure a few swipes with a file will rid of the excess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Work from home, mute button is great, has annoying hook bounce, September 10, 2014
The mute button is perfect. I can press the mute button and then kindly ask the disturbing family member to quiet down and then resume the call. The speaker phone mode to let them know that I am in the middle of placing a phone call. It is so damn hard to find a peaceful corner nowadays for phone calls. Sometimes I seek refugee to my car in the parking lot. I recommend the Uniden 1360 when you want to quickly cut out nuisance voices in the background or if you are frequently the listening party in conference calls. This is the work from home phone. The AA batteries allows me to move the phone between rooms as long as the phone extension cord can reach. I'm glad this phone model is not dependent on a clunky wall wart. No worries that batteries run out even after hours long phone calls. Much better for important phone calls than any wireless handset. DOWNSIDE: hanging up is sometimes accompanied with a hook bounce, which cause the phone to ring very soon after conversation ends. This seems to activate "hook flash" feature of the phone service.

4.0 out of 5 stars for 22 caliber air gun owners, good shopping cart filler to qualify for $35 free shipping, September 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you own a 22 caliber air rifle then this is a useful and straightforward way to top off the purchases until the $35 free shipping limit is reached Usually a brick and mortar store will carry a $8 price tag for these. The retail packaging protects the lid of the tin, but can still be very hard to open for the first time. Pour over pellets from the 500 count to smaller 175 pellets tin to have less weight to carry.
