Have you ever tried it (assuming you have a compatible device that is)?

I didn’t think it was all that important over ‘normal’ 2.4A chargers until I tried it, and now I wouldn’t want to charge any other way. My phone charges about 3 times faster from a QC3 port and it’s really handy getting 50% battery from just a few minutes charging!

Cheers. Was thinking of buying this yesterday with a 'measly' £4.20 discount. Glad I waited.

Also picked up the 3 port charger from yesterday. Didn't allow both discount codes so 2 separate orders with £1 no rush credit each. Can't complain!

Sorry didn’t read that bit about fast charge , was half asleep , depends where u will use ur wireless charge pad because like me if it’s by your bedside you won’t need fast charge as you would place your phone on the pad at sleep time and after 6 or 7 hours or when ever you get up it’s always fully charged ready to go hence in 4 months I have never needed to plug it in the old fashioned way . My wireless is 5W and you can get a 7.5W but in tests there’s not much difference in charge if speed .
Great price. Each port is 2.4 amp output max.

It may have 6 months warranty (basically WD really have no idea how the drive has been treated before being rejected by the purchaser) but then that’s why it’s cheap.

4gb external second hand drive for about £50 for example. 6 months warranty, and their no quibble 30 day return policy, should be enough time to run a thorough batch of drive tests.

There are 2 types of front lights; those intended to light up the road (for cycling on unlit roads, paths and offroad) and those intended to make you visible to other road users.
This light is the latter type and therefore fit for the purpose for which it is intended.

Using an unnecessarily bright light when cycling in traffic isn't safer - it just dazzles other road users.

I always have 2 lights on the front of my bike - a simple, cheap, 'be seen' light similar to this and a second, more powerful light for lighting the way on unlit paths, etc. (it can be turned down or off when cycling on lit roads).
I also have 2 on the back - just in case the battery dies in one and I don't notice.
Edited by: "ArthurDent1" 18th Feb
I've had this light for over three years and used it on four or five different bikes. It is the best "to be seen" light I've owned for the money. I used to leave the rubber mount on the handlebars and use the metal clip on the back to quickly attach and release it. It takes a few tries to get used to this method but once you are it is extremely quick. The light feels very well made - solid construction - and the battery lasts a decent amount of time for a compact light. In the years I've had it I've dropped it onto concrete/tarmac a few times and it emerged unscathed. The clip attachment can be used on your clothing/bag/etc so it can be used without the rubber mount. It's easy to operate even while wearing gloves. An excellent light at the full price but this deal, plus the code above, makes it extremely good value for money.

Good performance as far as USB lights go. I’ve got the pair of these. The mounting mechanism for the front light is appalling, try mounting it as shown on the handlebars and every bump shakes it loose so it just ends up flapping about. It drives me nuts. Good ‘be seen’ light if you can get it to stay in place.

Reviews on Amazon seem to suggest it takes upwards of 48 hours to charge …Reviews on Amazon seem to suggest it takes upwards of 48 hours to charge fully via the solar panel, and I'm assuming that's in direct sunlight. This is the main reason for the negative reviews. Nobody is suggesting that you can go off grid with this, at least outside of the Sahara desert. But it adds virtually nothing to the weight and bulk, and is super cheap. Try finding a non-solar 15000MAh battery pack for less. And the stated capacity doesn't seem exaggerated. It's about the same size and weight as my Xiaomi 15000mAh power bank and seems to hold just as much charge. And 58% of the reviews are 4-5 stars, and were probably written when it was a higher price, so I'm not alone in thinking this. Ultimately, if you're slating this for its poor solar performance, you've got insanely high expectations for £7.99

Trouble with rechargable lights is that they are ok if you use them …Trouble with rechargable lights is that they are ok if you use them everyday, but if not, and sat in a cold shed or garage most of the year the batteries will just die, which effectively means the product is useless as well.. Better to just use rechargable batteries, though LEDs, especially rear ones, will last a good while anyway on normal batteries. I use those mini rubber type clip on ones for my ride to the station in winter, plenty bright enough on lit roads, 2 miles a day and reckon I get 2 years out of the little lithium button cell batteries in them. Easy to just remove and stick in pocket when you leave the bike parked up too.

I've never had one 'fail'. How is it possible. They are simple push contacts. Maybe there's a possibility they could overheat due to a loose contact if you were drawing a large current but you're not, it would be well under 1 amp. The main problem is that the outlet socket is often not shrouded (unlike UK sockets), so you can push something metal into the socket and get a shock.

They'll mostly be made in the same factories and of a similar quality. Depends on how much you value your data and if you want to buy something that you have to use with another item added into the power line.I'm simply pointing out the need for an adapter to anybody who might just think 'Cheap. Gonna buy it.'

I've had many adapters like this or more 'universal' types. I've never had one 'fail'. How is it possible. They are simple push contacts. Maybe there's a possibility they could overheat due to a loose contact if you were drawing a large current but you're not, it would be well under 1 amp. The main problem is that the outlet socket is often not shrouded (unlike UK sockets), so you can push something metal into the socket and get a shock.
