something to watch out for - they don't clip around the thicker ucb-c cables.
drill it out a bit
They are pretty thin, I think you'd snap them trying that.

Maybe heat up a nail and feed it through? bit more control with this

One plus 3t comes with USB C connector but not electrically only USB 2.0. So lots of things are only usb 2.0 and ok with uncertified cables. It is only where the it is usb 3.1 the cable matters when it is supposed to transfer 100 watts through the cable, it can fry the wire(still not anything else)
Not correct. It's to do with the USB-A connector, and what it can handle.

Here's what Benson wrote:

The cable lies to the phone by telling the phone it's attached to a pure 3A charging path, like the C-to-C cable to the OEM 3A charger that ships with the Nexus 6P/5X. The phone will attempt to draw 3A, but that may damage the weaker device you have the Type-A end of the cable plugged into.

So in essence, you can fry the USB-A port of whatever you plug it into if your device tries to draw too much power.

Cables that are USB-C certified must have 56k ohm resistor in them.

Green light means it is working. If no green light then you should scrap the gang.

Or alternatively rather than scrapping it use it for something you don't need surge protection for.


​It goes out for a reason and an electrical fault is not worth risking. For me, it either works fully (including green light) or it goes to the tip.

Wouldn't risk it as it does not specify that it has a 56KΩ resistor which all USB-C convertors must have. I instead bought the Anker USB-C to Micro USB Adapter 2 pack. A bit more pricey and fewer adapters but I know it has the USB-C spec that it should have!

They're very short male to female cables which may actually be better for most as the lump sticking out of the phone is only one plug long and less likely to get in the way.

Tesco Hookwood had the coaxial cables, 5m VGA cables for £2, and some other stuff, mostly outdated tech, but I'm sure useful for some. I've bought the 5m VGA to connect laptops to our projector screen at my work.
The store near the end of the M53 Wirral had various cables and connectors, such as:

Coaxial couplers 2 pack @15p
5m satellite cable @ 75p
Switchable in/out smart to composite and audio @ 15p

The latter is useful for getting audio out of a TV with no audio out jacks or SP-DIF
Have bought similar offers in the past ... still there in the plastic piled up in a box.
It is a good price ... if you need them or can sell them on to make a profit.

It would entirely depend on the quality of the cable if it was a deal or not, if you think all audio cable is the same you are mistaken. If you think it cant cost a tenner for a 3.5mm cable you must not have any decent quality gear. You may be able to get similar looking cables for a quid but they will sound horrible. Not sure what the quality of these are like but it's doubtful that a pound shop version is going to sound anything other than terrible compared to something that details at ten times the price. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
Two quid fifty for a 6ft aux lead? That's -just about- reasonable. But I have bought a perfectly good 1-metre one from the poundshop before, so by rights it's only *really* worth £1.80.

Little wonder they weren't shifting at £10, there are a lot of mugs in the world but very few who are THAT thick.
surely no-one savvy enough to frequent this site could possibly see this and think 'deal'

Nice price if it is indeed a decent OFC cable (though according to audiophiles there's a HUGE difference between a 99.99% OFC and a 99.9999% OFC cable).

I bought a few and to honest they are worse then the pound shop ones one never even worked from new and other broke after a few days
these are located on what we call pound aisles, not a new thing we had them for ages and they very poor quality, we get most back
these are 'charging cables' not data cables. They don't allow sync, only charging like the generic poundland cables. My local Tesco has had these for some time.

A reasonable deal, but have been put off of Wickes due their shady pricing on kitchens... 50% off plus a further 10% and all that, off of a price that it never was in the first place, making it guess what, pretty much the same price as it was before. At least with B & Q, the prices are pretty much stable throughout the year, though in the end I went with a bespoke kitchen maker, but it was tough choice between them and B & Q.

I've never seen one in the Pound Shop that has 3 types of charger (old style iphone/ipad, lighting & Micro USB).
I guess a lot of people see the word Primark and vote cold :(
I speculate that as it is "retractable" then it is too much "effort" to pull it out or too much(or too little) pulling could mean cable is too weak or retract mechanism breaks or jams.

If anyone votes cold because it's too much effort to pull the cable out, or they think by it being retractable it could break then they need their heads testing.

By that theory every product should be voted cold as it "may" break at some point.... X)

I speculate that as it is "retractable" then it is too much "effort" to pull it out or too much(or too little) pulling could mean cable is too weak or retract mechanism breaks or jams.

Possibly cold as it looks like something usually found in a pound shop - not sure so haven't voted either way.

their sound quality is pure horror. you'd be better off wrapping a piece of string with a can tied to the end of it to your MP3 player

Which shop?
Sports Direct. That's where I got mine.
Which shop?
The little case is useful for other headphones you may own. Don't bother with the actual headphones though, the quality is absolutely embarrassing!

Honestly, they are Poundland quality.

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.

20p for a 1.8m usb cable. Title says extension cable, but pictures and description suggest its a standard USB cable. Either way still seems a decent price.

cheaper than a £200 gamecube cable.

Holy, are they asking that much for them now? Remember looking for one ~5 years ago and they were going for $60+ on eBay.
Also, apparently RGB SCART is not quite as brilliant as component, but it gets pretty close
ShadowWarrior241
Any Gamecube ones? X)


As far as I'm aware, the PAL Gamecubes we get in the UK don't even support component signal (huge shame really). Also, the official component cables that Nintendo made cost extortionate amounts these days - you can only use these component cables on American 'cubes because of reasons, apparently.

The Wii + component cable combo is a great option, but if you absolutely must use the Gamecube (which is perfectly reasonable especially if you enjoy using the Gameboy Player, for example) I recommend getting a decent RGB SCART cable. I'm chuffed to bits with the one I purchased, a truly worthy upgrade if you like using the original Gamecube hardware.

Here's the one I purchased and recommend:

lol. Best thing to do if you want to play gamecube games on component is use the wii.

That's what I'm doing now. My Gamecube is only used for GBA games at the moment. 8)

My memory may be faulty, but I thought the Gamecube component cable didn't even work on PAL Gamecube consoles.

There are plenty on eBay for around 5-10 pounds.

I have a pretty crappy bike that I rarely use but need a lock. Could someone recommend me a cheaper lock than this? This one seems a bit overkill for me. Id like to spend around £5-10

Please let me know where you park so that I can park next to yours.

Best deterrent is to lock your bike next to one which has a flimsy lock.

Agreed, it should be obvious to anyone who has ever looked in socket of their device, however there are some confusing sockets like this one of the left which looks superfically a bit like a usb c type except it has only one pin and is capable of supplying 2.5 amps or more at 20 volts
For extra bonus confusion, some USB C connectors are also capable of supplying several amps at 20 volts and are used for charging on a few newer laptops.

Mine just arrived and I'm very impressed. Much better than the easily broken cable with the Oneplus 2, and feels a lot better than the Orzly replacement I bought
Me too, 1 year unconditional exchange is great too.

This deal needs heat for the hilarity.
How can people not know that USB type C cables are a standard in their own right?
They're not micro USB, they're not mini USB, they're not lightning cables, they're not Apple 30 pin cables, they're not type A, they're not type B, they're not parallel cables and they're not RS-232 Serial cables.
This is now a 'what they're not thread'.

That's the newer ThinkPad charging tip, and is almost the same size as a regular usb A type male
It's definitely nothing like usb c which is much smaller

OP btw is this usb 3.1 or usb 3.0 type c? The difference is 10Mbps vs 5

Then perhaps you need to add 'instore only' to your heading.
Why should i?
it clearly states when you click the deal link above -
"Available to Order Online & Collect in Store minutes later"
maybe you didnt see that.
It has to do with not wasting people's time clicking on deals that are to all intents and purposes unobtainable. You will undoubtedly be familiar with the 'Tesco In-store Wild Goose Chase' meme on here? This falls into the same category. You didn't even bother to tell us where you bought yours.

3 deals in 5 years and you nag about a deal someone else posted?

More than a bit ungrateful as a comment, Halloway
Well I've no idea who you are and why I should give a toss what you think. I was simply pointing out the pointlessness of posting a deal where almost no information is given and where there is almost no chance of buying the item at the price indicated. In the history of HotUKDeals I am scarcely the first person to have done that.

I wonder who do you think you are too Halloway and why anyone should give a toss what you think?

Do you know in the 9yrs ive been on here and have clicked on deals that are hard to actual get my hands on or out of stock very quickly etc?

You dont have to follow this deal if you dont want to, or make an unnecessary fuss about it, as there are many like it on here as you yourself pointed out.

When you post a deal do you go and search and make sure it available on every branch or outlet in the country?

Not my fault thats its out of stock at the mo and besides who knows, it may be back in stock in a few day.
