Plunc – Recycle your old iPad

Mrs Zoo Keeper has not used her iPad mini (1st gen, 16GB, white) for a number of months now, so she decided to start the process of offloading it. Apple products tend to hold their value well, so selling it seemed to be a good idea.

Having had not too great an experience with fleaBay recently, when selling an old Apple iPhone 5S, we considered some of the various recycling sites. After trying a few companies, and getting pretty poor prices compared to the auction sites, we came across https://www.ipad-recycle.co.uk/. They were offering £15 more than their closest rival, and not too far off the expected selling price on fleaBay. They had some great TrustPilot reviews, so we thought we’d give them a shot.

Coolden iPhone 6 / iPhone 6s Kickstand Case Review

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

Five Stars

Really nice case, with a cool kickstand feature.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. Despite the very reflective and metallic appearance, this case feels very rubberised and soft. The gaps between the “metal” weaves are clear silicone style plastic, and sort of give away the nature of the material.

The rubber is very soft and pliable, so it slips nicely onto your phone and holds really well. All the ports are there, with cutouts and button covers all in the right place, nothing is difficult to get to, even the mute button.

Turata iPhone 6 / iPhone 6s Case Review

Really nice, thin and light case – lovely finish and packaging makes it a perfect gift.

Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a very attractive gift-style box inside a protective plastic packet. Inside the box was a protective fabric bag. This packaging would definitely make the case a perfect gift.

The case is really thin and light, not adding really any size or weight to your phone – it would be nice if the front could jut out to protect the screen when laying the phone face down, so it’s probably worth investing in a screen protector.

VicTop BlueTooth Headphones Review

Work perfectly and hold really well in the ear!

These earphones arrived in an attractive retail style printed box. Unfortunately, the box was a little damaged, but everything inside was OK. Inside were the instruction manual, the earphones, a little bag of different sized earplugs and a (very short) charging cable.

The earbuds were soft and fit perfectly in the ear, seeming to block out most extraneous sound. The cable holding the earpieces together is soft and long – long enough even for a large head like mine, with room to spare. The cable is nicely moulded into each earpiece, so it’s not just going to pull or fall out.

VicTop BlueTooth Car FM Transmitter Review

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

Five Stars

The best bluetooth receiver / FM transmitter I’ve used!

This item arrived in a nice, glossy, retail style box. Inside the box were the unit itself, an instruction manual, and a 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack cable (decent length). The item can take input via blutooth (including music), the jack plug, or an SD card, meaning you have lots of ways to get audio via your radio.

The car power socket plug is connected to the unit via a short “swan neck” type stalk, that can be twisted into various shapes, so you can angle the device to suit your particular placement or vehicle. The colours and glossy finish suggest this is a really high quality device, as does the nicely backlit LCD screen. I love that the power plug has a USB socket at the front, so you can still charge your phone whilst using the device as a hands free kit.
