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.

3 x Turata Lightning Cable Review

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

Five Stars

Great little cables, better than the originals, great value!

These cables arrived in a nicely printed retail presentation box, inside a protective polythene pouch. The three cables themselves are held inside a foam structure inside the box.

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 cables are slightly thicker than the original Apple ones, and feel slightly heavier duty.

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!

Apple iPad Mini

It probably escaped many people’s notice, but last Friday was launch day for the iPad Mini, and iPad 4th Generation.

The release of the 4th Generation iPad made me a little fed up, as my 7 month old device became obsolete, but not as unhappy as a colleague who had only purchased his 3rd generation device about six weeks ago.
