But will it last the full 24 hours?

Do they sell fire extinguishers for a pound too?:p:oops:
#4
Can't complain at that price, heat!

I don't know why people have the idea items from poundland are substandard, unlike most small private owned 99p shops who sell all sorts of imported far east products, most of what is found in poundland nowadays is brand name stuff (or rebranded brand name stuff).
Being one of the largest chainstores in the UK they have to abide by the same rules as eveyone else when it comes to selling safe products. So voted hot on this one!

If you value your home for less than a pound then yeah bargain. If you trust these to work safely and properly in your absence then go for it. Its cheap for a bloody reason! Why dont people spend a bit more and get safer items it will save you in the long run. I cant stand people who buy cheap on necessity items like Tyres etc... Buy the best you can get not those cheapo remoulds that will just pass the MOT. Dont people realise your putting your lives at risk. Jees.

In some minor cases you are right but i mean i have a Rover Metro 94 it doesnt have enough acceleration to go out of control so cheap tyres make a hell lot more sense especially as its worth under 100 quid itself and btw. your opinion is what manufactures rely upon ALL THE TIME some your more expensive stuff is made as the same factory as the cheap stuff JeeZ

You clearly fit the demographic for the sort of person they love in Comet, expensive HDMI cables, and vastly overpriced power surge protectors :whistling:

Whilst Poundland is clearly full of chavs you have to bristle past, there are actual branded goods in there. there are also british standards that electrical items clearly have to pass. If you want to go ahead and buy the same 24 hour timer from B&Q then p*ss your money up the wall.

this may help , the olden days to remold a tyre the top layer was scraped off and a new single sheet of rubber layed down , this is then stuck in the mold and out pops a new remold , problems came from getting the new layer of rubber to stick to the old carcase plus centering the new tread , today its common practice to stick a thin strip around and around before it then gets cooked in the mold for a much longer period than before ( to help galvanize ) , this removes the long black strip of rubber left in the road effect , it also means the quality of remolds is massively improved to the point that the speed rating can be massive now and some race schools only use select remolds , after all it may say hang wang whatever on the outside but 75% of the tyre is a dunlop or goodyear

as for the timers , over load and it welds the contacts together on all mechanical timers , doesnt matter where there from , use sensibly is the mantra to follow , trying to get these to switch say the elec cooker is where the problems stem from

They're still **** though. A mate of mine who's a bit of a div bought some then couldn't understand why the blocks were delaminating around the inner edges. It had us puzzled as well till he mentioned the 'brand' was 'remould' :lol: Like I said, a div :w00t:

Anyway back on topic, a LOT of stuff from poundland is substandard ****.

OK this might sound like the dumbest question ever but I have one of these and I can't figure out how you use it.

And yes I did read the manual.

Dont actually own a poundland one, but the principle should be the same for all of them.

You will have an outer and inner ring of holes or switches, either the outer or inner will turn the device on or off. Select the times you want the device to switch on or off using the pegs or swtiches supplied. You will also find some sort of rocker switch on the side of the device this will flick on and off dependant on the triggers you have set with the outer and inner ring.

Ensure the wall socket is switched on, plug this device into wall socket, plug in the device you want to control into the wall socket ensuring it is switched on (eg light) and as the timer dial moves round to the relevant time it triggers the rocker on the side of the timer unit and switches on power to the device you have plugged into it, as the timer moves around to where you have set it to trigger off, it will move the rocker switch to the off position cutting the power to the device.

I went to buy a few today - but they were sold out at my local - I will try the one near my aunts when we go to see her tomorrow.

Regarding safety - the shop is a major UK chain - and obviously is not going to sell goods that would get it sued. WHen I get them - I will copy any safety ratings from the product.

But seriously - to say or imply they are dangerous, would be like saying this link....

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/285761/nik-naks-9-packet-three-flavour-mul

...so would these taste worse than the ones sold at full price, would they risk my health or wellbeing as they were cheaper?

If you want to pay more from another UK shop that could be from a far smaller company and are happy to pay full price then do so.

But call it foolprice rather than fullprice.

Well I got a jar of Mayonnaise from the 99p shop guess how much? 69p:?
#31
after VAT cut it should be 97 P store

I got five from Edgware yesterday. I use these timers everywhere in the house, they save a lot of money (wireless rechargeable phones, rechargeable vaccume cleaner, basically everything chargeable only charges overnight).
#33
Why are those that are mocking the price of this product visiting HUKD? I visit here a few times a day to try and find good deals. Seems if you are happy to throw your money away there's little point dropping by here.

As for the 24hr timer it's a technically very simple item and most houses should be wired that if it goes faulty your household fusing system should take over.

I personally love Poundland, there is a lot of tosh on sale but if you look carefully you can come out with products identical to those on sale in other retailers for many, many times the price. When something costs a pound if it's rubbish you can still take it back to the store and ask for your money back or simply chuck it in the bin or give it to a charity shop.

Closer to 98p actually :) - I cant see them passing on savings at all! and 2p extra profit per item will make them rather a lot of cash! (although I like most retailers I'd guess the systems changes have caused them some hassle!)

(The amount of VAT in goods of £1 value is about 15p (14.89p))

Anyways 98p / £1 or £1.20 i think its a hot deal! :gift:
#35
To clarify if anyone thinks these are dangers - if they were - then the army would use them in Afghanistan - as they would be far cheaper than weapons.

97.87235p-Store. so really 98pLand as we dont do halfpennies anymore. :roll:

And to all those doubters, like Shengis and TeddyT, most of Poundland stuff is BRANDED, I just got some Belkin cables

So because they sell Belkin cables that makes 'most' of their stuff branded? I think not. I don't deny that they do have some good stuff, branded and otherwise, but it's more than made up for by the dross. Same can be said for Argos etc. In my experience it's a case of pay your pound and take your chances:thumbsup:
