Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ £32.40 @ CPC farnell
17/12/2018Expires on 17/12/2018Found 12th DecFound 12th Dec
Can be used to many projects, from arcades, home cinema, IOT etc

Hyperpie looks better imho, theme wise than Retropie.


Curious why you went with Hyperpie over Retropie?


I am in the process of building a arcade caninet, and this will go nicely with Hyperpie, thanks OP!


seems like it is possible https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/comments/6aki9y/best_way_to_combine_retropi_kodi_and_pihole_for/ you just need to have a bit more knowledge in the pi configuration etc. some of the projects have a pre configured images so they boot automatically without a lot of manual configuration.


Newb question......can you have one of these running pi-hole and at the same time record and stream tv using the pi hat or presumably a USB tuner at the same time?

About the only thing these are useful for is assembling flat pack furniture.


Some reviews of a very similar product can be found on Amazon. As you said - and it was my main worry - it doesn't have enough power in the cordless screwdriver to make it worth my cash.


bought one early this year, absolute rubbish, battery life very short, and no strength for screws, IMHO don't bother

We had these fitted where I work. They have all been replaced within a year. Not a patch on the MK ones that were used to replace them. Buy cheap buy twice. Okay if you're only using them once a week but not good for daily use.


Good to know, at one point plebs without an electron wrangling licence weren't allowed to wire a plug without a local authority inspector or qualified spark looking over your shoulder and approving your work. That's why the outdoor floodlights at the DIY box stores have a pre-wired plug dangling off the end, they try and pretend it's a appliance like a toaster or something. It looks like Part P has been relaxed a bit :- "Under the new, revised regulations, electrical work undertaken in kitchens such as adding a new socket or work outdoors such as installing a new security light will no longer be notifiable unless a new circuit is required. This will mean less work has to be notified by electricians." Your "ring spotlight camera." sounds like an improvement on having bare wires connected to the ring main as a security deterent.


It comes with the plug un-attached so you can just drill a hole and feed the cable through then wire the plug up. I have one of these powering my ring spotlight camera.


I have misgivings about leaving active electronics outside, the cold/heat eventually knacker them up.


They do one with a RCD built in to the switches Good if you have an old house with no RCD protection.

CPC The gearbest of the UKGreat price .... Naff company


Unfortunately I can't really help you there as we only tried it for photo's, don't get me wrong I'm not saying it won't work at all, it's just that the colours of your photo's/video's may not be accurate, if you don't mind playing around with the white balance settings on your camera and/or have access and ability to use a decent editting program you'll probably be fine, it's just that my missus needed decent quality and colour correct photo's for a professional website which is why we struggled.


Ok what about for video instead? For YouTube purposes.


I suppose so, but we have tried this before but struggled to find a decent picture quality. But please bare in mind that neither me nor my missus are anywhere near professional photographer standards and where trying to get professional standard pictures of glass (which is notoriously difficult to photograph) for her business website!


Can someone help me find just a PIR sensor to attach into a led flashlight. Thanks

Get this for £8.70 here https://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/pel00034/extension-lead-8g-ind-sw-wht-3m/dp/PL1531207 Note you need to spend £9.60 (incl VAT) or more to get free delivery but this lower price means you can buy something else for 90p and pay the same as the original post.


So I can plug 8 leads with Christmas lights in this without any issues..fire hazards, overload etc..I mean my Christmas lead have a power adaptor with is between 6-8 w


Yep you're right.... Note that powerline network adaptors don't always like working nicely when connected to a surge protected socket.


Overload isn't that what the fuse in the plug is for? Surge is more if theres a massive power surge from a bolt of lightning or a short, I think?

We lost the receipts so took the chance and luckily it paid off ;)


That's unusual as your contact is usually with the retailer you bought them from


I bought my daughter Nicky Clarke hair straighteners last year and they broke. So we got in touch with the company showed them proof and not only did they replace them they upgraded them to the latest ones out so if you do run into any issues with these it’s always worth reporting the issue. You could get better ;) For £10 these are a bargain (excited)


Great price, but not great reviews on Amazon Going to pass

if you buy more than 10 packs of D batteries, use this code BT0589507


Just ordered, thanks. For discounted prices on other sizes (I needed D cells) it looks like you need to put 33 on the end of the product URL and load the page before adding to your basket - perhaps "33" is the offers catalogue number?


They are still £4.99 excl vat if you use the link I put above https://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/psg90902/battery-high-power-alkaline-aaa/dp/BT0561833


Deal price has gone up a little and if you want to pick up AAA's, but getting 40 of each comes to £12.36 (incl. VAT). Still a very good price for 80 batteries. AA's price has gone up to £5.80 (excl. VAT) and GreenCell AAAs are £6.32 (excl. VAT).


I agree, these are good disposable batteries last for ages (y)

Really don't bother! They are cheap for a reason. Bought 8 packs last week and one of the six I first installed blew within 2 mins and tripped the light circuit. Another (after a couple of days) kept causing the light circuit to trip constantly so I have now removed them all! Going to ask CPC for a refund!


Look out for the Nebo work lights, cpc seem to have them cheaper than most places and they are an excellent tool.

Thanks for posting - needed an extention cable too so got it over the £8. Voted hot (y)


So there's no way of getting this at £4.60 final price, by itself? It's a little bit misleading.


What the Nora is a handling charge.

For that reason, this would have been an even hotter deal had it been posted before Bonfire night (party)


It's because they've just released their new catalogue, and you're right it's massive and I'm sure a real waste for the average buyer. You might also find you get monthly deal pamphlets sent out.


Mine are dated July 2021 :(


be warned that you get a huge catalogue with your delivery which is disgusting as 99% will surely go straight in the bin. Should be optional!


Wanted a couple of LED bulbs and a 24 hour timer this deal took me over the threshold for free delivery :D Thanks OP (y) Heat added.

Are these actually 2 metres pretty sure the cable Lenght isn’t that ??


Hi all, Sorry we had not noticed this sooner - at this time of year it can take a little time to notice back orders on a specific product until we have a significant volume of them. As PennyTrader points out we do have a system that is not ideally suited to HUKD (especially the volumes it drives out of hours, to new accounts and in a short timeframe). We are genuinely sorry to anyone who has placed an order we cannot support, we really do try to avoid this situation as it is poor for everyone.. As it has been a while since we have been badly caught out it seems a good point to explain why this happens. We have a stock system that needs an order to be processed to allocate the stock, the system does this automatically for the majority of orders but for new accounts, orders that have issues or checks flagged against it we do need to manually push that order through - what that means is that we do not allocate stock for all the orders we have taken. It is really helpful for situations where a fraudster ordering 1000 of an item does not remove it from sale for our genuine customers but it is really poor for HUKD where we get a lot of new accounts ordering and a dis-proportionally high number of not-allocated stock vs. orders. We only see that we have a problem when we start our business day and start processing new accounts with back orders on. We do not take any funds from anyone until an order is despatched, if we have cancelled an order the bank will drop that from your records as its only a pre-auth and we have not taken it. If you have tacked on some smaller items to get over the handling threshold and they have gone out for you (it is really hard to stop the orders when that happens) we will not have charged any handling for the order. If you did not really want the items ordered and would like to return them etc, please email social@cpc.co.uk and we can help you on there. Again, sorry that this has happened. Kind regards The CPC Team.


Same here. They took payment and then cancelled my order. CPC used to be good but I would avoid them forever now


Really ? That’s shocking have you got a name and I’ll invite them to this thread!


I ordered 2 plus some fuses for free delivery. Had email to say the 6 gang is out of stock so we will send the other items. Called to cancel entire order and they said it’s already been dispatched. When questioned about free postage they said I have now been charged postage. Shocking company to do this!

My dslr was stolen from a hotel room with it still on the bottom :-/


I’ve got the compact traveller pro but need new quick release plate anybody know best place as they seem to be around £15 quid and that’s about what I paid in sale for tripod


Bet this is shocking, you're probably better holding your camera in your hands than using this :p On a serious note, id buy a gorilla pod or something if you just want a lightweight versatile tripod you can easily carry around you. Then you just use that to attach to various objects like fences, or rocks you find on your way. If you're going tripod either way you need some weight in it, and this thing just won't have it (or hold extra weight you may add)


Well good for you :)


I have bought it. The beauty of if things last or not is that they generally come with a guarantee.

Would fit my Nintendo Switch so I could have more backup games avaible on the move. SX OS FTW!


True, but you only write music once; and you don't need to read it fast in a player. An average mp3 is about 1 MB a minute, not 300MB per second.


Can't say I agree, but if you want to spend £52 when £20 will do just the same job you're probably on the wrong website.


Why don't they put this kind of storage in phones and tablets?


What do you mean? Surely faster means music will write to it quicker...
