Also picked up my pack of 5 today - I'd all but given up on them... Cheers OP! :)
And they finally shipped the 15 panels I ordered!! Cheers OP!

Yes Freakstyler easy to set up with a bit of research... Could power the Shed, Garden Lights everything you said with just one of these, can attach a 12v Battery as well to store the Energy.

Only Available on Back-Order now... Might be worth the Wait though
I have a couple of cheap eBay charge controllers, go for one with an lcd screen rather than led's as they use less power plus you can monitor voltage and load easier. A 20w panel will maintain a fully charged battery with a few hours direct sunlight per day with occasion use of the battery at low loads, I have a 20w panel in the garden maintaining a 75ah battery and use it to recharge powerbanks, other batteries, phones, iPads etc and voltage never drops below 13v.
Yes I got mine from "Said" Site, though not set it all up yet, plus have 5 which I can join together. Will need some MC4 leads as None come out of the Panel, though with a bit a research could be a good investment for Garden Lights etc. Or keep one and sell the rest for £20 each on "Said" Site

Does anyone know where I can get the Optimate charger for a decent price? I just bough a bike that has the Optimate cable connected to the battery and hence just need the charger bit now.
Just to clarify the cable connected to your battery is not an Optimate cable, there is no such thing...you may have an Optimate branded cable of either an SAE or TM connector but that fly lead can be changed or converted to any battery charger that you wish to use.
Ah ok. Thanks. Do you know where I can get a suitable charger?

That's an awkward question to answer without knowing your bike battery and whether you intend using the charger for other uses such as a car as well. Also depends on what fly lead you have connected to your battery, you have not said which type and if you are willing to swap the leads connected to your battery for TM or used a converter to TM if you intended on using this extension lead.

Sorry, you really are going to have to be more forthcoming with details for an answer.

Only suitable for the older Optimates with the TM connection. This was phased out about 2 or 3 years ago. All new chargers now have the SAE connection.
I thought I made it clear in my heading it was for TM connections in my opening paragraph. Upon saying that if anyone using a TM connector wants to swap to an SAE connector there are adapters to do so and vice-versa, although it's not an 'upgrade' just a different connector with the same positive and negative terminals.
Yes, and I was just pointing out how old the charger would have to be. Many people aren't aware that the TM connectors aren't on the new chargers. A charger purchased within the last 2 years at least is likely to have the newer SAE connector.
Not necessarily...my Oxford Oximiser is new. I posted this deal for those that have TM connectors and made it quite clear also in my first post exactly what connector a TM is.
It is useful for anyone that has TM connectors at a stupidly low price. Hence why I posted it, it is not just for older Optimates, although there still are plenty of older Optimates for sale on the likes of Amazon etc with TM connectors I would think anyone interested in purchasing this would check what connector their charger has before purchase. I have however amended the heading to clarify although I thought I had given enough explanation...sorry if you feel otherwise and do not think it is a good deal.
I didn't say it wasn't a good deal.
You did not say or vote it as a good one either, just criticised that its for 'older' chargers by one brand.
I didn't criticise anything and I haven't voted either way. They're clearing out old stock that's why it's so cheap. I simply pointed out it was for older Optimates. I work in the trade and the amount of people that assume all Optimate products fit their chargers is unbelievable. I was trying to help people but you've obviously got it in your head that I'm slating the deal which is incorrect.

Well considering you came into the thread to criticise rather than vote then yes, it is useful for anyone that has a charger with a TM connector like myself, or for that matter anyone that wants to convert from SAE to TM....

As for them clearing out old stock, and you being in the trade, I am afraid you are wrong, because the item was out of stock a few weeks ago (as I was going to order in April) and back in again, do you work for RS Supplies to know they are clearing out old stock? Do you know that Accumate/Optimate have actually stopped manufacturing and supporting their chargers (some are still being sold with TM Connectors) with these cables?

I see you took umbrage a few years ago with people voting cold on your battery charger deal.....how about you actually think outside of the box and realise this is a bloody good deal for anyone that needs a TM connector extension lead, whether it be an older Optimate model or not. And as already said I am pretty sure the photos I provided as well as a clear description in the heading was enough, but I did also add that disclaimer about newer Optimates...but bear in mind this extension lead is not just for Optimates.....

Just because its branded Optimate does not mean that is all its compatible with as already stated. Tamiya connectors are used for many purposes from battery chargers to car connections to radio controlled cars etc.

So happens that as stated I have an Oxford Oximiser 900 their 3 metre OF705 cable with TM Connectors retails for £10, this Oximate TM73 2.5 metre usually retails for around the same price.

​Yeah. I need 1 to make my wife strip whenever I feel horny without having to beg/plead with her. Could it also make her shut up whenever she nags or is that asking for too much?

Edited By: Racoon on Feb 05, 2016 10:26: update
thing is about the pi.. it's intended use isn't for any one purpose... it's uses are only limited to your imagination.. there are plenty of blogs and forums with guides and ideas for its use.

I suspect if you are bothered about having Android, then perhaps you just need to buy an android box

i have made a dozen pi 2 kodi builds over the last year and they are generally £45 a build. I think they are great at running kodi and the fact that the fire stick and hdmi pc are wifi puts me off. Wifi is rubbish for streaming movies.


Correct! Media centres need to be hard wired Wi-Fi is terrible at streaming.
A Pi2 is great at running kodi especially if you overclock it, it's smooth and stable.
I haven't found anything else that is small enough to go behind our wall mounted kitchen TV that uses the TV's remote via HDMI CEC.

People that expect the world for £30 quid annoy me, for what they are the Pi2 is excellent.

No I posted it with the wrong price on it. I wouldn't have posted it if I had realised the price was what it is. It has nothing to do with people voting it cold.

Arrived less than 24h after i ordered it but maxes out at 450mA/h on my Galaxy Note 3. Will stick in into one of my RPi's instead and get rid of the rainbow!
See my previous post with links as to why Pi PSU can slightly different to a Phone PSU. To high current charge a phone there is a handshake with the Android / iOS device otherwise the stock 500mA current will only be available. This is to prevent damage to devices that assume a 500mA max supply. Hope it works OK on the RP. Mine should arrive tomorrow.
Yeah, thanks, I was aware of this. I'm sure I read about a hack you can do with your android device to enable charging at a higher rate. Will investigate further.
Better late than never (?): usually just have to short the USB data connections to remove the current-limit.
I ordered a couple of these which got delivered quickly to work (I'll pick them up in the New Year). In the meantime, I'm powering my Pi 2 with a 2A adapter that came with my Samsung Tab S 10.5" with no problems (and all 4 USB ports occupied with a USB 3.0 stick, a USB Freeview HD tuner, a keyboard and a mouse) - no sign of the rainbow square indicating under-voltage.

As a fun experiment, I just ordered a 10000 mAh Xiaomi Power Bank from GearBest for 7.95 quid (that price only holds for 4 more hours after this posting though!), but it's coming from China so probably will turn up in 1-2 weeks. Yes, there'll be a scratch-off code with it to confirm it's genuine (no way am I using it without confirming it's not fake - this power bank in particular is known to have many fakes). If it makes my Pi 2 portable for several hours, I'll be happy, otherwise I'll just use it on the phones/tablets I already have.

I've ordered a couple of these cases (at this price, it would be rude not to!), but also note that the official power supply is also very cheap at 3.90 inc VAT (at least a quid cheaper than anywhere else from what I can see) and that's not had a HUKD posting of its own as far as I can see. Bought 2 of those in the same order as the cases - even if you only have one (or no?) Pi machines, you can always use the power supply for mobiles/tablets as well (or instead).

It's a good camera during the day, but even if it's cloudy the image falls apart, they really need to bring out a new one. Security Camera wise the xiaomi xiaoyi ant is a better camera for £20 with wifi and IR night lights, can also be used as an intercom.
I have the Xiaomi and and cannot recommend it. They have it locked down so that it can be used only with their buggy app which is largely in Chinese. They have also disabled RTSP which kind of misses the whole point of an IP camera. A Russian forum is working on a hack for the 2.1 hardware version but it's far from done.

Yeah, but only if you're Tony Stark.

And not sure why this is cold, because this battery isn't the common type you get in the packets at poundland. These are often more expensive than this. Although the ebay deal with the longest url in the world posted here is a great price - even if half the cells are dead on arrival.

how easy is to load Kodi on this please? (for dummies)

For dummies? You got it!

You need an sd card or a micro-sd with an sd card adapter and you need to be able to plug it into a Windows PC (to follow my guide), so do that first so the PC/laptop recognizes it. If not you can't continue with my guide.

Download OpenELEC image (efficient Linux OS with Kodi): http://releases.openelec.tv/OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.8.img.gz
Download Win32DiskImager: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

When that's done. Extract OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.8.img.gz (with WinRAR or another archive software) and install Win32DiskImager. Run Win32DiskImager and locate the drive (Device) where the sd card is located. Then locate the image (Image File) you extracted and press "Write".

Once that's done. Plug in the Pi (as you should know how to do that already). It will boot up OpenELEC and Kodi will appear.

Love my B+, and this is great price. If you have any low cpu intensive projects ie. VPN, NAS, FTP, etc.

Choose the Pi 2 if you're thinking kodi, the B+ makes the UI borderline usable at times.

1 shop. RRP . This is not a deal.
Well you could go and pay £29+ at the other main reseller, or even more at some of the smaller retailers.
Hot deal.

You could if you were terminally stupid. One official distributor one price. Cold.
Well mine was out for delivery today. Spent a lot of time refreshing the page so I could go into the office where I sent it as I thought it would be 'Next Day'. Eventually a status update at 16:16 - Held in depot for redelivery. So RS first don't do next day and now ParcelForce can't deliver a parcel to a building thats open 24 hours...
Now I get to wait until Monday. Awesome...
Delivered today, no dispatch notification or order history. Arrived just in time for me to realise I have no microsd->sd adapter to load an OS on it X)
brilly
mines now shipped at the higher price
showed in account for a little bit now gone again
still crap company!
replying to self to update sob story...

guy from chat says will be adjusted in next few days

why couldn't they do it right first time though!?
Ordered Monday at 13:34, delivered today.

So much for next day delivery. Should have just used thepihut.
