whoa, what's stuck up your ass? is it not clear that it's expired? are you going to go to maplin after you read a description of it being expired?

Don't be a dick and grow up.

Hive multizone is no harder to fit. just one extra receiver and one extra room stat to fit. Same principle applies. Install always depends on current set up (stats/clocks/locations etc)

Mate the only thing i've lost is time to a troll who acts like a 5 year old and £20 on cheap tat that can't do anything near what it's advertised to do.

I know the deals over now, but for anyone looking at these... don't be as tight as I was and spend a little more on something that'll actually last and work for any diy job you'd need to use it for in the future. Who buys a workbench just for cutting some plastic guttering? Mental.

Cheap junk. I had two. They broke. Handles snapped off, legs bent. I have two black and decker ones that were only £10 more and they haven't broke in two years.
Seriously, don't bother with these.
Mine is a year old and fine!
Ya know what a bad workman blames?
lol bad workman? I turned the handles to hold a piece of wood. They snapped. I'm honestly not sure how that makes me a bad workman when its made of cheap plastic? Its not like I was hitting it with a hammer or I'm the incredible hulk. I used them for light DIY to make some shelving units for under the stairs, not exactly expecting high performance but they couldn't even handle that. Lets be honest, the £20 b&d ones I have aren't exactly professional quality but they've already outlasted these cheap ones and believe me, they're much more stable.
Personal insults when someone had a different experience to you? You know nothing about me.
You're not doing it right.
It's not designed for building cabinets mate. What part of "light duty" don't you understand?! What makes you think a £10 bench would be man enough for that?
I have used it sawing plastic guttering, holding things while paint spraying, clamping things together being glued with epoxy, drilling pilot holes though various items, keeping things firm when using a heat gun etc, etc.
If you're trying to use things heavier than the bench itself you should buy a more expensive bench fit for purpose, not breaking it by overloading it and then complaining it's the bench's fault!
Right, where exactly does it say light duty on maplins page? it says max load 70kg! they're also not cabinets, it was holding cheap studwork spread over 2 of these which weighs less than 10kg just so I could saw it. These formed the uprights for shelving units. The rest of the assembly was done on my patio using repurposed palettes from my work. Also, how does the weight it was holding have any bearing on the handles snapping from turning?
What a troll. Beginning to think you have a financial stake in their sales how you're defending this cheap tat. You've wasted enough of my time.

Don't split hairs mate, you've lost.

No longer available. Showing as 'discontinued product'.
Though they do have a 'Phison 480gb SSD' at the same price which seems to be faster.

Once you've found the item was cheaper previously, you just don't feel like biting, especially with tech which normally always gets cheaper or more advanced for the same money.

If you are desperate for one then go for it, otherwise I'm sure they'll eventually get cheaper again.


This is me for the last year, I need a load of 8TBs soon and a few more of these SSDs. :(

Ah so faster read/write. Thank you :)

Been in store this morning. The deal is £10 off a £75 spend but excludes Google home as it comes with the Chromecast. Also they won't price match Currys as it is a discount code.

That's incorrect. I've reserved Google Home + Chromecast yesterday and collected it this morning for £119. Unfortunately, they don't do student discounts if you've used £10 off discount (it's one or the other)


Called CS who also confirmed deal doesn't apply to this. It looks like you may be one of the lucky ones

I'm curious about what kind of cells they use in these. Given the 12000mAh capacity and the 13.8 x 2 x 7.6cm dimensions I presume it's a 6 cell power bank, so 12v would be 2 parallel chains of 3, and even the highest current rated 18650 cells around the 2Ah mark can only safely draw 35A, so I'm suprised they're claiming this can supply over 70A
Perhaps they're using non-cylindrical lithium batteries like large phone cells to reach that current output
This is almost exactly what I was wondering................. Until I realised I had no idea what I was on about :(
Of course it's not cylindrical cells. They are lithium polymer like most, if not all modern day high-drain tech!
What you on about? "Of course it's not cylindrical cells" ?? Loads of good power banks use li-ion cells! Li-ion 18650 cells are great. I use them in my vape, have them in various power banks.... if you still unsure maybe go and ask Elon Musk... :p

Nothing at this level of power will have cylindrical cells. This is not a 1500mwh £5 clearance item. The cells in larger capacity devices legally have to be either LiPo for internal cells, or have removable cells. Due to EU laws when transporting products in aircraft.

Do your research mate, don't spout half truths you've overheard in a forum.

I had one of these before works well and jumps a car easy one of the best power banks that works.
Just check out reviews online
So it has enough cold cranking current to start a car (>100a) up to 6litres?
If that were true which I highly doubt I would not attach that through a skimpy little cable to my phone!!
Cold for the ludicrousness of the claimed current....
It charges a capacitor in the jump leads you attach to the car battery. It does not provide the current direct from the battery pack...
Do you think you use the same cable to charge your phone that you use to attach to the car battery?!
It's like this:https://podfeet.com/NosillaCast/NC_2014/NC_2014_08_03/powerall5.JPG
Do you actually think that's a capacitor? Lol It's clearly the fuse as stated. A capacitor with that much current would be much, much larger. And of course not wired in series.
An no I don't think I connect my phone with crocodile clips.....

The capacitor is in the power bank and I admit, I typed that in a rush. Open the unit and find out for yourself. As it's much bigger than a normal 12000mAh unit would be. Yes, the bulge in the jump leads is a fuse. The picture was referring to the fact that someone suggested you use the same leads to jump the car as to charge your phone which obviously you don't.

I have used one of these portable jump starters to start a pretty big engine so I don't think the engine displacement is really relevant in this case, but I have no doubt it can output fairly big burst currents.

as i said, i don't follow the market nor claim to have inside story. but i can say for sure that the retail price will have significant lag to the out of factory price as retailers and importers will have fixed prices on pre-orders. so according the article if the supplier is worst at end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 then we would probably yet to see those price adjustment to come in.

i am looking at Samsung 1TB 850 evo on pricespy, when it was introduced back in early 2015 it was around 220-230 mark then after Jun 2016 it gone up to 260 and now around 290 mark. so that price differential is exactly the same as the £v$ differential (1.57 to 1.23). so it is hard to argue against numbers...i suggest you just crunch some numbers and figure stuff out for yourself.

Correct me if wrong, at one point chip manufacturers were producing far too much, hence why we could get 16GB DDR3 for silly prices like £50. Then, they slowed down production on purpose to increase prices. Wish I could remember where I read about this...

Why have SSD's gone up in price so much ?
brexit. manufacturing of these stuff is getting cheaper. the suppliers are charging less $ per GB out of factory. but by the time it arrives at our shore and due to the £ tanked big against $ compared with 12month ago thus the big price hike. also importers are greedy. i am lucky i bought my 1tb for £150 about 18month ago.
Lamest explanation.
And this is the lamest come back - to ignore it or suggest it's project fear conspiracy
These items are manufactured in other countries and are bought and sold often in dollars. Sterling took a 25% tumble vs dollar. It makes a big difference.
some people likes to live in a bubble of ignorance so basically let them be and the sooner they are gone and stop spreading their genetic material the better.

Can I suggest you go and read about commodity pricing, and study THIS! article from last year, showing that a NAND flash price increase was well predicted.

Of course currency markets have an effect, but given that the lowest prices were seen in Oct/Nov last year, and the dollar rate adjustment happened in June, the price had already been adjust and partly absorbed.

If you chose to comment on a market that you do not fully understand and are not part of then maybe hold back your judgment of others until you have researched the subject and have some solid facts, not just a blanket statement you feel fits all that is going wrong.

I ordered this one. Added a small item so got a £10 voucher, also 7.35% TCB, so effectively around £83 for more power and a better brush
Nice, you had a play yet? Is it any good?
Thinking bout getting one tomorrow for cleaning the flags in garden and to help with pre wash of car. Bit dubious if to use with car, but those folk at £5 car washers use em, so surely can't be too bad!?
I had a play with it yesterday as got it a couple of days ago. Took me far longer than the 2 minute 30 second assembly video by the guy on Argos website :D Never was very good at self-construction! 'Normal' people apparently find it incredibly easy to construct :p
Seems very good - been using it on the driveway. You can absolutely adjust the pressure strength and it even has a 'car' attachment nozzle (Not tried that one to be honest). But if you think the power is too much, you can just spread the water over a greater surface via twisting the attachment nozzle.
I would go with the higher pressure (The £100 one) and then you have it, if you need it. It also claims a 3 year warranty.
Yeah Im same. Takes me longer to do most stuff. Why I try not to buy flat pack.
I have been watching videos for a few hours bout using em for washing cars and buyinv extra foam lance/bottle from Amazon.
All in could cost be bout £150......then I think of how easy it is to just pull up n pay 5 blokes a fiver and done in 10mins.
Suppose its a bit of fun and self satisfaction. Dont think anyone has ever cleaned the flags in my garden since house was built so thats main reason I looked into it and then just upselled myself and tried to find further justification for another techy item.
Does the hose from tap to unit come with it? I do have an hamlock hose on a reel that has its own attachmebt for the hose nossle. Hopefully this can be use without just cutting the hose end off and having to use a different attachment.
Anyways Im waffling....thanks for the reply. Will grab one tomorrow. Argos doing the £10 for spending £100 so will grab something cheap to go with it so can get the voucher.
Thanks again.
My hozelock attachment fit directly onto the inlet of the pressure wash

Sweet...Nothing worse than having everything out of box, spending ages putting it together, to find you have to go buy another part! Had that originally with having to go out and get an extra attachment for under the sink to connect Hozelock to.

I ordered this one. Added a small item so got a £10 voucher, also 7.35% TCB, so effectively around £83 for more power and a better brush
Nice, you had a play yet? Is it any good?
Thinking bout getting one tomorrow for cleaning the flags in garden and to help with pre wash of car. Bit dubious if to use with car, but those folk at £5 car washers use em, so surely can't be too bad!?
I had a play with it yesterday as got it a couple of days ago. Took me far longer than the 2 minute 30 second assembly video by the guy on Argos website :D Never was very good at self-construction! 'Normal' people apparently find it incredibly easy to construct :p
Seems very good - been using it on the driveway. You can absolutely adjust the pressure strength and it even has a 'car' attachment nozzle (Not tried that one to be honest). But if you think the power is too much, you can just spread the water over a greater surface via twisting the attachment nozzle.
I would go with the higher pressure (The £100 one) and then you have it, if you need it. It also claims a 3 year warranty.
Yeah Im same. Takes me longer to do most stuff. Why I try not to buy flat pack.

Back up to £54.99 at Maplin and Amazon
Great price fantastic mouse!
Great price! I got this a while ago for about £10 more and it's a super comfortable mouse.
I love this mouse, so much so that I've already bought one as a spare when one of my other two breaks.

Also the sensor is smack bang in the middle, tried a few others with the sensor offset to the left or right and it just feels weird.
My G602, ive changed batteries once in about a year, medium to heavy user

Got the hive 1 for £54.99 from.screwfix on here. Why is this one so much more for the same effects?
The room stat is fugly on v1, whether that justifies the price though is another matter
Who cares what it looks like as long as it can read the temp etc. Personally, i cant see the justification, but some would disagree. Cold I'm afraid
Just bought this instore yesterday and was given a 5% discount on top (to beat the website price) which took the total to £189.24 plus your 15 off voucher

*if your store doesn't have stock they will reserve it from another store and deliver to your home FOC*

@mimlloyd, is that what the Maplin staff told you cause the voucher says spend 15.01 is eligible to use the voucher?

http://i.imgur.com/1UJP7o6.jpg
Yes you're right. My voucher says the same. Guy deffo said £50.01 though.

Just picked mine up in Maplins. Voucher can only be used for purchases over £50. Currys are offering 3 months of Google Music free with the Google Home but I'll make more use of the Maplins £15 voucher.
Can you confirm that the voucher can only be used on purchases over £50 the website T&C's seem to suggest it only has to be £15.01 as I was considering using the voucher to get an additional HUE bulb in the redemption period.

You're right. Guy in the shop definitely said over £50 (£50.01 and above), but I've just checked my voucher and it says spend over 15.01 to get £15 off. And in the box it says there's 3 months Google Music for free so the Curry's promo is no big deal. I've got just over £4 cashback from TopCashBack too.
julian_1234
Can't be bothered to post it as a deal, but you can get £15 from Quidco.https://www.quidco.com/GoogleHome15?

the 3 months of free Google music is from Google themselves not Curry's. so everyone will get that offer, no matter where you buy from

CCA: Cold Cold Avoid!

Don't think it is, I got a few and I've taken a section of one, stripped it down, taken out one of the cores, scraped it, chopped it and bent it - solid copper for sure.

Not flat and not Cat7.
Pray tell, under what circumstances do you consider CAT-7 necessary for short-run (10m) Gigabit Ethernet networking? Even CAT-6 is overkill unless you have to route your network cable tight against high powered electrical cables or RF sources (e.g. inside your microwave oven). I bet you buy gold plated HDMI cables too ;-) I do agree that flat cables can sometimes be useful though.

Will be off to Maplins to get one,cheaper than 99p shop.:)
Cross-over is for pc to pc.
Straight-thru is for pc to router etc.
These cables are very easy to make yourself.You just need the crimp tool.
Used to do loads when did Cisco networking.:)

Hey old school.. You were right about 10 years ago :).. there is no need for a cross over unless you are working with legacy equipment.


Few months ago I ran a new 15m straight through patch cable for my brand new PC to a virgin superhub3 router. Did not work at all with new comp but seemed to work fine with 3 year old dell laptop.

After lots of head scratching/googling found that you need a crossover cable for longer runs. So cut one end off, rearranged to crossover configuration & bingo. Never had a problem since.

Wow,didn't realise been so long since I done Cisco!!oO
Also, professional managed switches are a world apart from what's found in the home. If it's unmanaged it has to have all options enabled all the time.

Have you tried using the TP-Link utility that disables the power-save feature? (Google 'TP-link power save tool' to find it). They have a habit of going to sleep otherwise and sometimes need power-cycling to wake them. It's a problem with quite a few of their homeplugs, I've got the 8030s (3-port version of this) which work fine now.


Thanks for this info. I've been getting drop outs that are annoying so I have switched the power save off now (thanks to your info) and see how I go

Is the PA9020P the fastest currently available? Although £95 is steep for me as I'll need two pairs (or rather 3 individual units)

Track it on camelcamel. I picked two sets up for £60 each.

Yeah, 2000 are the fastest homeplugs available at the moment.

maplin logoMaplin – Electronic Specialists Since 1972

It all began from the bedroom of an Essex apartment in 1972, when a trio of technology buffs started selling consumer electronics by mail order from their catalogue. As positive word of mouth spread, they were able to complement mail order operations with a physical store in Westcliff-on-Sea and they've never looked back. Thanks to increasing revenues, Maplin were able to set up additional stores and warehouses, and even develop a range of home-build electronic project kits.

Now under the umbrella of Rutland Partners management group, Maplin runs over 200 physical stores across the UK and Ireland as well as mail and telephone order operations and an online store. Maplin also established a drop-shipping service in 2013 for budding digital marketers.

The Maplin online storefinder lets you find your nearest brick and mortar store in the UK and Ireland by entering your postcode, clicking the interactive map, or selecting your location from the list.

One other important category in the online store is Special Offers. So if the sales banners or ads on the homepage don’t tickle your fancy, head to the special offers section where you'll see popular products at discounted prices in addition to introductory offers on new items and brands. And if you find a product somewhere else at a lower price, Maplin will match it or refund the difference if you bought the product from Maplin up to 30 days ago. What’s more, Maplin’s Black Friday sales event is a good time for bargain hunters to grab online-only deals.

Returns and Refunds Policy at maplin.co.uk

Maplin has a handy 30-day money-back guarantee if you decide you no longer want something, if it’s not how you imagined it would be after you open it, or if it’s the wrong item in the box. This step by step guide will help you create a returns request for unwanted products:

  1. The first thing you must do is contact Maplin to make a returns request within 14 calendar days of product delivery. The quickest way is to take the product to your nearest Maplin store. Failing that, simply email Maplin at [email protected], by telephone at 0333 400 9500 (01-8782800 for Irish customers), or write a letter to their freepost address at Maplin Electronics, FREEPOST MAPLIN, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Rotherham, S63 5DL.
  2. Maplin’s customer service will then give you a returns authorisation number.
  3. Repackage the item or items and post them to Maplin Electronics Ltd, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham S63 5DL. You are responsible for paying return shipping costs.
  4. The money will be refunded when Maplin are satisfied with the condition of returned items.

There are a few exemptions you should be aware of, though. First, you can’t return any item if you void the manufacturer’s warranty in any way, like breaking a seal (including on a DVD or CD) or activating software. Second, you can’t return items with a product activation key that was damaged after you bought them. Third, gift cards cannot be refunded once purchased. Fourth, any orders paid via PayPal can’t be refunded and only qualify for an exchange.

Plus, if you buy something from Maplin and it breaks down within a year, Maplin will exchange it or give you a refund (except PayPal) when you present the item and proof of your purchase to their customer service team as per the steps above.
