5.0 out of 5 stars Brand Name Product - Speedy Delivery - Marvelous Price, April 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a Seiko watch that I know is at least 10 years old. It seems there is nothing I can do to wear it out. I do have to change the strap and the battery occasionally.

A week ago, I looked at the time only to discover that my watch was stopped. Time to take off the back cover – okay this is the only complaint I have about the watch – it is a bear to take off the back cover. But once off, I could see the exact battery I needed.

I went online to see the cost of the battery if purchased locally. Then checked the cost on Amazon.com. I was surprised to find that I could get 5 Energizer batteries online for less than the cost of one battery locally (Target or Walmart). So I ordered the batteries on a Monday and they arrived in the mail on Thursday.

So I was without the watch for three days. But I saved myself the trouble of driving to the local store and buying one battery. Now I have four spares.

The battery works fine. It fits perfectly. I have confidence in the Energizer name and feel safe knowing I am putting a good battery in my watch.
The batteries were delivered within the time promised. Actually they arrived on the earliest promised date.

I am very pleased with the product and the delivery. Also pleased at the cost savings and the fact that I have four spare batteries for the next time one gives out.

IF you have more than one or two Apple products around the house and a couple of different users, it is often difficult to find a charging cable when you need to charge a device. The UGreen Lightning charge/sync cable is handy to have as a spare cable.

The Ugreen lightning cable is a nice length – 5 feet so that gives you a little extra cable to work with. The Cable is Apple MFI certified and so far works well. It will charge and /or sync For iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, iPhone5s/5c/5, iPad Mini/Mini 2, and iPad Air. If you happen to get an error message, check the power source before you blame the cable. Apple products need 5W/2.1A input. Less than that will give you an error message.

The cable works well and is reasonably priced. I recommend it as a good additional cable to keep around the house.
Please note, it only comes with a 30 day guarantee. As long as you take care of the cable and do not mistreat it, any issue should show up within the guarantee period.

I was provided a sample for testing/review purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Results - Feed works faster, April 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is a 20’ wide right away behind my backyard that is maintained by the HOA. The grass (weeds) get cut periodically but I am quite sure they have never treated the space with any sort of weed killer. Also a couple of neighbors are less than avid about keeping the weeds out of their lawn. So it is a constant struggle to keep the weeds in my lawn to an acceptable level.

I applied the Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Food Weed and Feed to my yard using a Scotts spreader. I finally broke down and purchased a spreader. The application was quick and easy. In past years, I had spread the weed and feed by hand. Big mistake. Using a spreader is so much easier and spreads it uniformly.

After two weeks and a fair amount of rain, the grass has really greened up and is looking very healthy. This is actually the best start of season growth I have seen.

There have been plenty of weeds that have died off and much of the clover and dandelions are showing signs of dying.

So the feed seems to work quicker. The grass is very green and healthy – growing very fast. A lot of weeds have died off and even those that have not been completely killed are starting to show yellow in the leaves – so it is clear the weeds are being eliminated.

I suspect that I might need to apply another treatment to completely eliminate all the weeds. I realize that the weeds from the right of way and from my neighbors are blowing seeds into my yard. So part of the issue with continuing weeds is the local environment.

I am really well pleased with the way this treatment works. I would dread seeing the yard without it having been treated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Seeds Grew, Some Did Not, April 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I had four bare spots in my lawn. Two were in the back yard where the previous owner had a swing set and a sand box. The other two spots were in the front along the driveway.

I spread the seeds, then covered with a light layer of top soil and cow manure. Fortunately, there has been fairly consistent rain for the last couple of weeks. Not everyday, but alternate days so the yard has been consistently watered.

In the two spots in the back yard, I have some grass growing. It is not as filled in as I had hoped/expected but the seeds did sprout and grass is growing. One of the spots along the driveway the seeds have sprouted and grass is growing. Unfortunately, the other spot is totally bare. It might sprout in a few days or I might need to mix in more topsoil and cow manure to get grass to grow there.

Bottom line, getting grass to grow from seed can be fairly difficult. There are a lot of variables which can affect the seeds and prevent or reduce the number that sprout. Grass seeds, no matter how good are not the only factor that control the growth of grass.

So like with most planting, some seeds sprouted and some did not. Grass seeds can be a bit of a challenge. These are certainly worth the try but a lot will depend on the soil conditions in your own yard and the care you take in cultivating them.

The grass is still spotty and I am not sure how long it might take for it to be totally filled in.

Results are okay but not spectacular.

DBPOWER® Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speaker with LED Display Portable Dual Speakers and Enhanced Bass Resonator, Multi-functional Radio & Alarm Clock, Power Bank, Support Handfree and Redial (Black+Red)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound, Multi-Functional including FM radio, April 18, 2015
There are lots of Bluetooth speakers on the market. The DBPOWER® Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speaker is different from any I have used. It does all the things you would expect from a Bluetooth speaker but it has the added features of being an FM radio as well as an alarm clock.

It is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery. The battery will last about 8 hours on a charge. But you can keep it plugged into a power source so that you will not get caught with a dead battery.

There are six controls on the top of the speaker. From left to right, the buttons control, play/pause, previous/volume, next volume, alarm clock, FM radio and Bluetooth. On the rear is the line in, TF card, USB port, on/off switch and the DC input 5V.
The speaker will allow you to answer incoming calls. It has a built in mic for using the speaker as a hands free speaker phone device.
The Bluetooth will sync with any Bluetooth enabled device. You can also connect with the TF card to play any recording on the card.

The sound is excellent and you can really turn the volume up without any distortion.

The unit is very attractive, black with a mesh front grill and a small LED screen front and center. The ends and rear are an orange/reddish color.

The speaker is a little under 9.5” wide by 2.25” deep by 2.5” tall. So it is quite small.

The only thing that someone might object to is the clock. It is a 24 hour clock. There is no AM/PM. Time is displayed in military time. That might take some getting used to.

All in all, the speaker produces excellent sound, is multi-functional – FM radio and alarm clock. Very nice product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slim, Attractive, Double Your Available Power, April 15, 2015
The UNU DX-Free iPhone 6 Battery Case is Apple Certified 2400mAh External Battery with Protective Case. The case is well made, specifically designed for the iPhone 6, so all the functions work properly.

The case is very thin, it is only slightly larger than the phone itself. The battery is 2400mAh, lithium ion rechargeable. This means that you will effectively double the power of your iPhone 6 battery.

The case is made of durable polycarbonate shell – it feels firm and rugged but it still has a smooth, soft touch.
You install the phone by removing the top bumper edge. There are directions for how to do this. I simply unsnapped the cover at the top of the case and go around the case lifting up the bumper. The directions suggest that you use the edge of a credit card. Once the bumper is off, insert the iPhone 6 in the case so that the lightning port fits over the extension. Snap the top bumper back in place and you are good to go.

There is a button in the lower right hand corner of the case that you can push to check the charge level of the phone. When it glows green, it is fully charged. When it changes from green to purple, it is greater than 30% and less than 70% charged. Less than 30% is a steady red and less than 5% is flashing red.

The case comes with a USB micro to USB charging cord and an audio out extension. If you wish to use headphones, you will need to use the audio out jack extension. The case extends the distance from the audio out socket so you need the extension. The case also comes with a screen protector for the iPhone’s screen and a cleaning cloth to clean the screen.

The case comes in different colors, the unit I have is black. There are very clear operating instructions included. The charging cable will charge the battery case/phone at the same time. The cable also allows you to sync the phone with your computer so there is no need to remove the iPhone from the case.

This is a very attractive, well designed and rugged battery case. The two main functions are to give you double the available power and to protect the iPhone from damage if dropped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart and Stylish, April 14, 2015
You would expect the Smart Weigh SMS500 Digital Bathroom Scale to be smart – and it truly is. In addition to being very accurate, the scale has a lot of built in features that are very amazing.

The scale will store information for up to 8 individual users. So long as the users weight are not too close together (need at least 4.4 # difference), the scale will remember each user and will display the change in weight – showing a decrease in green or an increase in red. Talk about a way to drive the message home.

There is no programming involved – the first person to step on the scale is U1 (user 1), the second person is U2 (user 2), etc. After that the scale remembers each person and automatically displays the change in weight.

The scale is very modern looking. It measures 12.6 X 12.6 X .75 inches high. This might be an inch or two larger than your old bathroom scale, but the added features are worth the small additional space required.

The scale operates on 4 AAA batteries which are included.

You can operate the scale in 3 different modes – kilograms, pounds or stones. There is an very detailed operating manual included. It is printed in English, Spanish, French and German.

If you exceed 8 individual users, you will need to clear the memory. You can clear all the memory or select one or more individual users to clear.

The LED display is fairly large and I can read it without my glasses.

This scale is very attractive and has some very nice features that will help you keep track of how you are doing with your weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive, Slim, Functional, April 14, 2015
The LifeCHARGE 3000 mAh Extended Protective iBattery Case for Apple iPhone 6 offers lots of advantages for protecting your phone while extending the battery life.

The LifeCHARGE case is lightweight and very slim. This one comes in black but it is available in other colors. The case feels comfortable and natural in your hand. It is fairly straightforward to operate. You simple remove the top section of the battery case, insert your iPhone into the lightning connector, replace the bumper top section that snaps in place and presto you are good to go.

The case contains a lithium back up battery rated at 3000 mAh which is slightly higher than the rating on your iPhone so it will more than double your useful time. The case is specifically designed for the iPhone 6, so all the features of the iPhone are available without removing the phone from the case.

On the lower right hand corner of the case is a small round button. Pushing that button will show four LED lights that indicate the charge level. When all four light up, the battery is fully charged.

Since the case extends past the length of the iPhone, there is an audio jack extension included. To use the audio out features, you will need to use the jack extension.

You can charge the battery pack and the iPhone at the same time. You simply plug the USB charging cable into the micro USB slot on the battery case and plug the USB cable into any USB charging device.

There is a cut out for the camera and there are buttons on the side of the case that match up with the buttons on the iPhone. This is a well thought out and well designed case that should give you lots of service.

This is a very attractive case, it doubles the battery use time and it offers protection to the phone. The USB charging cable is a bit short. But you can use any USB to micro USB cable that you may have. So this is not a major concern.

Attractive, functional and doubles your talk time.

New Step Portable Men Casual Luggage Canvas Weekend Travel Duffel Bag Brown (FBA)
New Step Portable Men Casual Luggage Canvas Weekend Travel Duffel Bag Brown (FBA)
Offered by vecoo
Price: $28.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive, Sturdy, Durable, April 13, 2015
The Newstep Portable Men’s Canvas Weekend Duffel Bag is made from heavy duty canvas and is well made to withstand some pretty serious use. The bag measures approximately 19.5” long X 9” wide X 15” high. So there is plenty of room to store lots of clothes or supplies. You can certainly use it as a carryon bag, a gym bag or a utility bag.

There is a zippered outside storage pocket that measures about 8” wide X 6” deep. It is lined with a nylon material.

On the bottom are 5 rubber bumpers – one on each corner and one in the middle. This will protect the bag when sitting on a flat surface.
The bag has reinforced canvas belting on the sides and both ends. You have an option of how you wish to carry the bag. There is a hand grip if you are carrying the bag for a short distance. When needed, there is a detachable shoulder strap. It is very easy to detach and can be stored inside the bag or in the outer pocket. The connections are brass and the snaps are easy to open/close.

The zippers are heavy duty and easy to operate.

I have the brown canvas bag and the color looks very nice. The bag looks like it will stand up to some heavy duty use.

There are a couple of things I need to mention. There is no firm bottom to this case. That may be a plus or a minus. It depends on your preference. I would have preferred a hard bottom, but there are some times when a soft bottom is better. Also there are no interior pockets for storage of a laptop/tablet. I think the bag would be more versatile if it had a couple of interior zippered pockets – one for storage of a laptop/table and one for storing smaller items – supplies. Again, this may or may not be a factor in your use. I like the bag and think it will give plenty of service. Just wanted to point out the lack of those two features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surge Protection and 5 USB Charging Slots, April 13, 2015
Just a few years back, when you needed to charge some digital device, you had a charge cord that plugged directly into a 110 volt outlet. Now so many devices are charged by USB cables that can plug into your computer or other USB charging outlets. The only trouble is that there always seems to be a shortage of available USB charging outlets.

The Elivebuy surge protector solves that problem. It has four 110 volt outlets for your computer, printer or other device that runs on live current. The surge protector offers protection against power surges, spikes or fluctuations. The Elivebuy surge protector has a very small footprint – measuring just over 6.5” long X 3.875 “ wide X 1.5” high. It is black in color.

The surge protector comes with 5 USB charging ports. Three are 5V1A and two are 5V2.4A. Each slot is clearly marked. This gives you plenty of USB outlets so you are not having to disconnect something from your computer or look for a different source.

The Super Charging Port comes with USB charging port controller that will detect the device connected and self-adjust so you are getting the right charge.

The Super Charging Port is good for charging smart phones, iPods, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets and Battery Packs.

I like the compact size and the layout. The four 110 outlets are on top and the 5 USB charging ports are on the end side away from the power cable. All in all the unit works as it was supposed to and I love having an abundant number of USB charging outlets always available.

I was provided a sample of this product for testing/review purposes.
