I purchased these compasses for use in Survival/Paracord bracelets, and they work great! As long as the wearer, or user of the compass placed the compass on a level surface (wrist, or palm of the hand) so that the metal compass wheel can rotate freely, these compasses work great. I've tested every one that I've put into a bracelet, and have had no issues with any of them. They've all pointed the proper direction of north.

I purchased these compasses for use in a lab experiment, and for the minimal cost I found them to work surprisingly well. I don't think I would want to use one if I were embarking on a long hiking adventure (they are very tiny), however for kids to use, or to give a general direction they well-suited.

Takes a while to get from China but well worth it for the price. This is my third set of 48. The first 2 sets I bought came in 4 sleeves of 12. This last set was just all 48 dumped in a box. I use them in survival kits & paracord items. I haven't had a bad one yet. They are magnetic compasses so you have to separate them from each other & also keep them away from other metallic objects to get them to work properly. They aren't extremely accurate but I don't expect them to be. They are just for general use in keeping yourself moving in the same direction. If you are looking for something with very specific minutes of accuracy you obviously need to be buying something much more expensive & larger. These are right between a penny & nickle in size.

I am completely amazed as to how fast I got this product. I ordered it, and two days later it was in my hand without paying for expressed mail. I was a little worried when I opened it up. It comes in four packs of 12 compasses. Now, saying that, all 12 compasses had a different north on them. So I opened it up, and set them down away from each other and sure enough, there really is just one north. The compasses was also a little cold, so in an emergency situation, hold the compass in you hand to warm it up and also remember to keep it level. This is a great product for the price, and I will order more as my supplies get low. Also, one of the shippers is in another country. I would not use them, unless you can wait a month before you get them.

These little compasses I bought for projects and the like. They are new but like all those I have seen, bubbles will occur and eventually they will dry out. They are not super accurate but fine if you need to use the cardinal points. I wouldn't want to survive on one, but in a pinch it will work. They are great for bracelets, necklaces and other crafts with kids too! Three stars because they just aren't great, but I didn't expect more for the price.

I was very happy with what I received. I got them a day before the actual delivery date, which was great. The only problem is that they were all put together into a small package. Because compasses work as magnets, putting them all together throws them all off. I had to take them all out and set them all over so that they would reset and point back towards north. A few didn't work (maybe 4) but I think that is to be expected when buying in bulk.

I plan on using these for a science experiment in my classroom, so for the price, even if they are a little inaccurate, it was a great deal! I am not sure I would use these as your sole compass for a long trip, but they would be great for a general idea! Just don't keep them too close to each other (or any other magnets), as they will throw the accuracy off!

I lined up all the items that were received and many of them (at least 1/2) appear to point somewhere other than north. Not sure I could have much confidence in these compasses. They look like the real thing, but not sure they work well enough to bet your life on.

We make hardwood walking sticks by hand and bought these compasses to embed in some of them. We discarded 4 of the 48 because the compass cards were stuck in one position and didn't rotate at all or bubbles in the liquid interfered with the card. The remainder worked fine and were uniform in indicating magnetic north. We did a comparison test against the other compasses we had been using (at $2.95 each) and the more expensive compasses were a bit easier to use but only because they were a little larger.

These compasses are good for giving you a good idea of where north is. If you need to know exactly, better use your pocket sighting compass or GPS.
