PROS
Good Size Nicely built (exterior) Nice feel
CONS
Interior fit poor
I received this torch with a recent order of several torches to play around with and overall it is probably one of the nicest exterior finishes of all of them in this order. The beam has a good brightness and it's a nice handy size, but that's about it I'm afraid. The interior of the unit is poorly matched with the battery size, I'm assuming it is meant to take the battery that was supplied with it, but the tolerances are very loose and the battery rattles around inside, even with both end caps tightly secured. So much so that the light flickers on and off, switching between modes, basically making the torch unusable - don't know if this was an isolated issue and I got the lemon but that's what I have to go by, so I'm afraid I can't recommend this torch.

PROS
Comfortable Good range of modes Quite a reasonable beam Good price point
CONS
None
I've been using this headlight around the house for a few weeks now and despite owning a couple of other lights I always tend to grab this one. It's comfortable around the head with a good range of adjustment, has a good beam with three brightness levels which I've found covers all the jobs I've used it on. For the price I can highly recommend this headlight, so much so I've ordered 3 more, original purchase for home, another for the car and 2 for our vet clinic where they are used regularly during consults and small surgeries.

PROS
Well built Colour makes a nice change
CONS
Cable is a bit stiffer than normal cable Grip on the Lightning plug is a little larger than Apple plugs and might not fit some cases.
I bought a couple of cheap cables to use in my car as a spares for charging my iPhone - both were braided cables as I thought they would be a bit tougher for throwing around the car, possibly getting caught on things etc. The white one I got didn't work at all - I have reviewed that cable in a separate review - this one works nicely, it both charges and syncs, feels well made and I therefore recommend it. The only downside is the plug on the lightning end, it is moulded a bit larger than Apple cables and therefore might not fit in some cases, although a bit of a modification with a Dremel grinding wheel might fix that problem :-)

PROS
Looks good Strong magnets Price is good compared to Apple
CONS
Didn't last long
This was one of the first non-Apple bands I've tried and I was pleasantly surprised, it looks good, feels good and the magnets are strong, which is something I was concerned about when i ordered it. I loved this band, but it started to split and fray after about 3-4 months of 22/7 wear. It spent two hours on the charger and 22 hours on my wrist, don't know how an Apple version of this band would hold up but I'm not likely to find out with what they charge. Would I recommend it given it's short life, I certainly would and I'm going to buy another, at the price you can't complain.

PROS
Compact Responsive to changes in temperature Accurate
CONS
Magnet on back is weak
It's a bit of a hit and miss with items on FastTech at times but this ones a keeper. It's compact, easy to read, seems accurate compared to other instruments I have and it's quick to respond to temperature changes. Highly recommend this unit as for it's price it is well worth it. Only complaint I would have is the magnet on the back to mount to to a fridge for example is weak and doesn't hold the weight of the unit.
