Mengo White Lightning USB Cable Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Solid cable, almost identical to the original, great value!

This item arrived neatly coiled and tied, sealed in an attractively printed retail box – it would look great as a gift, and details all compatible devices etc. It’s a small box, so even in the Amazon sleeve, it fit easily through the letter box. Small box = less packaging = environmentally friendly too!

The connectors at each end were protected from scratching by thin cellophane wrapping, they are securely moulded to the cable and won’t pull or fall off. The cable is slightly thinner than the original Apple one, and maybe slightly less flexible. Unfortunately, it’s also desirable to cats, as fresh teeth marks after less than an hour of use can testify!

Coolden Translucent Rose and Yellow iPhone 6 Case Review

Five Stars

Very pretty case, really enhances the natural look of your phone.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. Inside, there was a further plastic sleeve for protection. The first thing that stood out about this case was the colour – it was almost transparent, whilst having a hit of pink blending nicely into yellow towards the top of the case.

In the back is a pair of holes that look like they’re for a lanyard – it would be nice if one were supplied, but you can obviously use any standard lanyard. The holes in the case for buttons, microphone, camera, speaker etc, are all in exactly the right place, and it’s nice to see that there’s an earphone socket cover, to keep dust and other nasties out.

Coolden Tough Gold iPhone 6 Case Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Really tough and resilient case, yet not at all bulky.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. The case was rubberised on the inside, for shock protection, in what seemed to be a two-layered fashion, with harder gold sections providing additional protection.

The rubber showing on the back is textured, to provide a good grip in your hand. There are two cutouts in the back, one for your camera / flash, and one for the Apple logo to show through. All the other ports are there, and in the right place, although the hole for the mute button is relatively small, and it’s not easy to get in there to flip it up or down. The case slips easily onto the phone, adding very little size or bulk.

Amir 24 LED Solar Light Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

High quality light, lots of options for light or power saving!

This item arrived solidly packaged, in bubble wrap, inside a strong cardboard box. The box contained the lamp itself, some basic instructions, wall plugs and screws, and handily, a template for fixing the light to your chosen position.

The solar panel is really large, and this is a long unit, and it has a pleasant matt finish, which to me suggests it may absorb more sunlight than the usual glossy finish, although that remains to be seen (if we ever see sunlight again in Yorkshire!).

Creco 6W LED E27 Bulb Review

This review appears in its original form here, and is for this product listing.

Five Stars

Lovely warm yet bright light, with the pretty elements showing!

This item arrived well protected in a plastic pouch, surrounding a polystyrene foam wrapper, holding a solid cardboard box, protecting a plastic shock absorbing bulb holder! Wow – like a bunch of protective Russian dolls – there was no way that bulb wasn’t getting to me in one piece!! tall, solid, protective box, with the item, instruction manual, measuring jug and power block inside. The humidifier has an interesting design, but it really comes to life when powered on.

As a bulb, it’s pretty standard – an E27 American Style screw cap, standard bulb shape and size, but with orange LED elements strung inside. These elements light up really brightly, but you can still see the shape of them when you look (but not for too long). I love these LED bulbs, they’re so efficient to run, and so cool you can just grab and unscrew them even after a few hours turned on.
