Some good advice and tips, thanks. (y)


Thankyou keith


I bought one of these, and it will weld 4mm with a 2.5 rod no problem. Could do even 6mm or 8mm with multiple passes. It's a DC machine so penetration depends which way you got it set up. Electrode positive - red to red - gives most penetration for whatever size rod you're using. Electrode negative - red to black - gives a softer arc, less penetration, so nicer for thin metal and filling. It's a hobby machine, remember, not a production welder. But well up to the job it was designed for. Nice soft arc, and easy to pick up from a scratch start. Sure is a lot lighter than carrying the old buzz-box about, especially up and down stairs! With a 3-year warranty this is a pretty good little welder for those home jobs. If you haven't welded before, be sure to watch some videos on YouTube before you start. Get a self-darkening helmet, the mask that comes with the welder is only good enough for someone watching you; it's always best to use both hands when welding, especially if you're a beginner. Oh, and Ragstaa, you can weld 2mm box with this real good, but get yourself some practice in first, and test your welds with a big hammer before you do proper stuff.


Hey for you experts, could I use this for 2mm thick square box sections. Total newbie to welding


80amps is only going to be any food for up to 2mm thick material. As for mig welders then 1amp for 1 thou of thickness (40 thou is 1mm so 40amps required).

Glad your enjoying it, easier to learn to weld on a decent inverter as the electrics do a bit of work for you.


I got one - and am pleasently suprised. It's definitely easier to get a nice puddle than both previous 'buzz box' arc welders and the Clarke gasless MIG I've got. Leads are maybe 165cm or so and mains lead not THAT long either. But then looking on ebay; 3-5m of welding leads could cost you £30-£60 on their own, easily. As it's pretty compact, that should be less of an issue, hopefully. Weighed in at 3kg I think it was, though that was with the leads trailing on the ground.


I open up the welders we have to blow the dust out, you can tell the difference with the cheap and cheerful and the proper gear, the mask etc with the aldi one are all probably throw away stuff, and could probably do with a decent set of 3-5m leads, but the 3 year warranty at this price can't be sniffed at, and I'm tempted for the little things we do at this price to add to the two I own and the work one's we use...


They've got auto-darkening masks for £23 or so I think next to these. I've already got two, so didn't look further at them. I had a look, then a quick look at ebay and decided I'd probably go for the ebay route. But getting back at about 7:45, it seems that the high amp ebay ones at a decent price generally didn't include the welding cables. Ended up deciding I'll go back to Aldi again. It is pretty light and compact, which will be nice - and maybe something I can keep in my SWB van for bike trackdays etc without taking up too much room - but it seems so are the ones that offer higher power too.


Looks like 35% duty cycle, so 3.5 mins at 80amps in any 10 minute period is not to bad for a hobby welder, it's not like your going to be routing and capping pipe..

Also worth checking your cars accessories socket can supply 200w. They usually say on the cap. If not check the fuse box for the fuse size (will need to be 20a+)


It'll work initially but it puts a lot of stress on the components. The engineers assume each component will receive a certain measurable VIR/PIV curve - a square wave is just turning the power on and off, this leads to a ton of stress on the components (think jamming a car in full throttle and breaking over and over again).


This is a sinewave inverter, it's just s square sinewave. Pure sinewaver inverters do cost a ton of cash. It's basically down to what you want it for. I wouldn't in a million years put a high end Dell or Macbook pro on it.


It'll work fine until it goes bang. Pure sine vs square wave leads to some seriously unhealthy wear. You can actually hear it on most devices, it'll have a wine or some other artefact as the capacitors and conductors are not able to balance the current. Just avoid charging sensitive equipment and it's a steal


If your kettle is 200w or less all that will happen is you'll be stood round for ages waiting for it to boil.

If it's £135 in Halfords, you can easily get it for £125*0.92+10=£125 (£6.30 TCB for new customers)


I wouldn't buy it to use as a jump starter. It's only useful to me as an inverter and power pack (e.g. to run a coolbox off in the boot of the car on the way to a camping trip)


I always carry a spare battery , cheaper and more efficient


OR.... small car battery, lidl smart charger, pair of decent jump leads...... 300w invertor if you really need it (won't run much and will drain the battery very quickly), not as portable but works better, though if you're riding round with this in the boot because your battery goes flat, you're an idiot ;)


Be careful with these, this will not jump a flat battery, like a lot of jump starters at this budget they require some power in the battery. At this budget you cannot beat the Clarke 4000

Samsung fridge freezers are very noisy. Mine is 56dB compared with stated 39dB. Their customer service is absolutely dreadful. Engineers have stated noise is an average value and another time that they measure the noise in a vacuum - yet won't provide it in writing. Customer service don't have a clue - at one stage asked me to drop it off at my nearest customer service centre so they could take a look (100KG+). Absolute joke of a company - avoid!!! Currently stuck in the middle between Currys who have stated there is nothing they can do as I've used it (how would you know it was so noisy) and Samsung who won't acknowledge that the noise is a problem.

I meant Volts not watts my mistake. For example I couldn't power my 90w tv with a power bank as it needs a 240v input.


Considering that the power of this Inverter is 120W you wont be able to power your 240W device. Anyway, I never talked about laptops. What I was trying to say, is that this days most of the portable devices can be USB and also that most of the other devices that you may want tu use would need more than 120W.


How can you power a 240w device with a power bank? Your comment is the most stupid I've seen today. This is only £12.99 and better quality


This will be fine for a laptop


I really don't understand this comment? This should be more than enough for most laptops etc. If you're referring to power banks in their most common term (i.e. the 5000mAH type batteries that have a USB output), I don't understand how this would be relevant to this product's intended purpose?

My lord, good luck and hope you have good insurance if you leave this little beauty running while unnattended. I think HUKD should ban deals posted for these sorts of unsafe pieces of crap. There's good reasons why our UK electrical standards are so high, it helps people from being killed by dangerous junk like this, that's why you shouldn't find any reputable UK retailer selling these.


seems very strange this fits USB converter and mains inverter in such a small space, plus it is for non-uk plugs, maybe avoid

Get dealGet deal

Buy the best you can afford, always buy a bigger generator than you think you need, same as hiring a skip ! all things run on watts, add all the watts than a bit more thats whatvyou need, but you will in time always want to run more. Anything with heat ie kettle, iron, ,tumble dryer etc etc use thousands of watts, and new led bulbs use 3 or 4 watts, if you buy cheap you buy twice, in quality not price,


Second reply from Aldi states that it is modified sine wave not pure sine wave Has anyone put a scope on the O/P when under load?


I bought one of these generators, pretty sure it's a re badged Kipor IG2000 inverter generator which sells at twice the price, it's physically the same and the specs are the same, just a different colour. The output is definitely sinwave and the output voltage is very stable even when switching 400w resistive loads - I tested using a digital voltmeter. As with all small generators be mindful how you use them, be especially careful using inductive loads such as some large power tools which can draw very high starting currents - enough to fry the inverter on any small generator. The peak rating for this generator is 2KW so the maximum wattage power tool I'd use with it is 500W giving a factor of 4x over head. Using resistive loads or modern electronics I'd happily load this up to 1500W still allowing a bit of headroom. Very pleased, if it is a re badged Kipor a bit of a bargain too!


I have had some email correspondence with after sales at Aldi They say that the O/P is modified sine wave, ie not smooth But this does not tally with their website which says "Sine wave gives clean, stable voltage and reliable power for sensitive electronics" so I have asked for clarification

I bought the "premium" Panny model, I'm probably deluded! :3


Pretty much like all whitegoods these days... Made not to last


A few years back, Panasonic microwaves were built like tanks, never went wrong and lasted almost indefinitely. If only they still did........


I had quite a bit of bother with the Slimline combi 552 and 555 models, still for sale - think this one is a newer one. I ended up splashing out on the NN-CF853WBPQ. Have a bit of an irrational fear of the Combi function as it's the programme that ended up killing the 552 and 555 (only had them both around a week, returned to Amazon). I have read varying reports about the Inverter microwave system too, but not sure what the latest is with that.


Beware, this is a "slimline" combination Panasonic oven and so does not actually have a convection heating element. Instead it relies on just the grill element to heat the cavity. Some people complain their "slimline" Panasonics burn the top of food whilst not cooking the bottom properly. I have a venerable old Panasonic "proper" combi which has given great service but will need replacing in the not so far future and I would not buy one of these slimline models.

No doubt this is a good price, but I just can't understand why it's getting 452 degrees heat while the deal for the LG FH4U2VCN2 is getting only 62 degrees. Both washing machines have exactly the same specs (9kg, 1400rpm, A+++, 5yr warranty).. But this Samsung is £30 more than the LG. HUKD is a funny place sometimes.


Well, I've read the specs sheets on the Samsung website for both the WF90F5E5U4W and the WF90F5E3U4W. They're identical in every way. Since the WF90F5E5U4W / WF90F5E5U4X is now £449 at Currys, and the WF90F5E3U4W is £399 at AO, makes sense to buy from the latter and save £50. That said there's now the LG FH4U2VCN2 , also £399 at Currys and seems to be very much the same!


I was thinking of getting a Miele with 10 years warranty. But then I thought, they're £800 minimum. Why don't I just get a £400 washing machine with 5 years warranty, like this Samsung, then *if* it breaks after 5 years just get another one for £400 with another 5 years warranty... Benefit of that is latest model after 5 years and also the possibility that it actually won't break after 5 years and last even longer before shelling out another £400. More cost effective option than an £800+ Miele, surely..


i don't know to be honest but i just checked and it tracked at 21.45. i have no idea how quidco works as i have only started to use it last week.


Got the same machine as yours (mainly for the higher speed, sacrificing 1 kg of the posted machine deal).

So far so good.. happy with the purchase Not tank-line in build heft but seem good VFM and cooks much better than my old one - hope it doesn't break !

The grill stand itself s a bit daft with it's legs and all.. (_;)


Page 17 under "Important information - read carefully" : "Fan Motor Operation After using the oven the fan motor may rotate for a few minutes to cool the electric components. This is normal and you can take out food even though the fan motor operates. You can continue using the oven during this time." If anything this will extend the life of the microwave. RTFM


Just picked up one of these. Wondered if anyone else who has one can confirm that it's normal for the door hinge to widen very very slightly as you move from top to bottom. Only found one side image online which looks fairly similar to mine (although it's more obvious up close).


Thanks OP ordered


They don't make microwaves like they used to. I bought a Goodmans microwave/grill with stainless steel interior, for £50 over ten years ago, and it is still going strong. At my workplace one with a painted interior, went very rusty within two years. Its replacement is aired out and dried after every use to prevent the same happening as again it is painted inside.
