That would suggest the heat gun averages around 250W. (It is rated for 280W) Which is much less than the continuous draw from tools like…

Yeah I wonder if they consider it not comparable, since the Ozito 8Ah allows switching to 5Ah for longevity.
22/02/2024 - 14:51
They still sell it. $80. https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-pxc-18v-cordless-inflator-deflator-skin-only_p0374788

That's the normal price, but yeah it is a handy tool and good value for money.
22/02/2024 - 09:41
Oooh nice work. I will have to try this as a spare. You can get it from Bunnings, via special order. So order online for pickup. But no…

The comparisons are just from my own use. EG, swapping between 2Ah, 2.5Ah, 4Ah batteries and comparing grinding ability. Not super accurate…

Edit - I realised there is an updated model since I bought mine, and it now has a wide lock button, whereas mine has a small one. So button…

Yeah I am much the same. But this is a synthetic fiber fabric, so won't degrade from washing. And it's thick enough a little surface wear…

If it helps, I have one of these vacuums that is about 7 or 8 years old now. I have cleaned that little filter a bunch of times with water,…

Your phone is not charging at the full rate the power bank can output. Your phone is in control here, and sets the charge rate. Why isn't…
05/02/2024 - 13:35
The 12 hour rating will be on whatever setting uses the least power, as they say "up to". Misleading, yes. Technically correct? Probably,…

One of the reviews shares a video of the set up and pack down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiIkypmJYNc Looks reasonable enough for $99,…

Interesting! So definitely 7p, so 21 cells total? That puts it at 18.2Ah, so better than rated. Perhaps they use conservative discharge /…
05/02/2024 - 11:11
Yes they are safe. Your phone controls the charge rate, not the charger. There is no "trickle charging" - once full, the phones battery…

This ugreen model (90597A) uses 21700 cells. The Anker 737 is a better power bank overall, but the ugreen model is pretty good and often…

If you have not already, try another cable, cleaning the contacts etc. I have a 7 Pro and it works fine on this charger. But I experienced…

When I had an issue with a product, I couldn't even get a response from Kickass. I'd definitely avoid them.

Many laptops will charge from 15V, and it is useful for things like USB-C to car accessory socket cables, which often use 15V triggers. PPS…

The Blade Pro was ~$70 (eBay Plus, ~$72 otherwise) during the black Friday sales. Great deal but the current ~$83 is decent. There was not…

I have some post Christmas Amazon returns to lodge anyway, so figured I'd grab one of these and see how it performed. As expected, it’s…
18/01/2024 - 14:48
Yeah that is a good deal. And $25 is about half the price of buying it elsewhere and solid value considering the spec. And great find with…
13/01/2024 - 10:31
What is your budget? Will you be likely to also need to charge a laptop? As others have said, Oppo VOOC is very uncommon for power banks,…

Wikipedia tells me it is dried again afterwards. (I hadn't heard of it before now so was curious) It appears there are multiple reasons for…

Ahhh, I thought I remembered it specifically saying copper cable. It's in the questions. Q: What is your jumper cable made of? Pure copper…
06/01/2024 - 17:14
Yeah ok, that is unfortunate and makes these much less of a bargain. CCA has about half the current carrying capacity, and is less…
05/01/2024 - 14:52
Yeah that makes them an extremely good deal just for the cable alone. 10mm diameter copper is the 74.54mm2, which puts them between 00 and…

I ended up writing more than the "one extra thing" I had in mind which convoluted things. So the step I mean is the below, where you…

Keep in mind those presale $20 ZMI QB823 power banks from Kogan were a crazy good deal, and the QB823 is an extremely high quality, high…

One extra thing - the S23U 5000 mAh rating isn't at 5V, so a an extra step is needed. Based on teardown videos, the rated capacity for the…

I quite like the similarish Mark Ryden case from Aliexpress. Depending on coupons, it's usually around $12, but sometimes under $10. Buy…
