Integral LED Night Light
A visit to a recent event held by a large distributor saw me leave with information from a number of companies I do not normally hear from. One such company was Integral who I think of only for memory but here something rather different.
A very simple looking device at 7.5x11.5x2.5cm these figures are maximum when plugged into a 13amp socket.
The light is 7.5x7.5x.5cm set into a Perspex sheet above the 13amp plug so even those of us with shirting board plugs are OK as the light unit is above the plug.
The stated running costs of this unit that will automatically turn on at dusk and off at dawn is 2p per week. The power usage is .6watt and the current 20mA.
It never gets even warm to the touch so no shock or burn danger. It comes with a 36 month guarantee.
The Integral LED Auto-Sensor Night Light is available from the link below for £4.99
Kaiser Baas Selfie Pole
This can technically stretch 1.2metres above your head and if that does not see the target nothing will. Of course the original idea of a selfie was for you to be next to the ‘star’ or ‘hero’.
So figures first this can stretch to 90cm which with a normal hand/arm length gives around 1.2metres. The handle at the base has four buttons which can be operated by your thumb and for once a piece of kit that works in either hand.
At the far end a grip that can fit via tripod screw either to the back or the end of the fitment as both have tripod screws so either Landscape or Portrait views are available.
At the other end is a lanyard attached to the very end. This needs to be removed to facilitate charging of the internal battery, once removed you can unscrew the end to reveal a micro USB socket a 75cm micro USB to USB cable is included.
My Selfie Pole was black but strangely the USB cable supplied was white.
This pole works with both Android and iOS Phones via an App available from the appropriate store.
Perhaps the most vital figure is what the grip can accommodate first the phone can be up to 10mm thick. The other dimension is between 56 and 85mm the difference is a strong spring to hold the phone securely and if you are going to wave it about a metre or so away from you in a crowd you need to know it’s not going to leave the selfie stick first for security and secondly to avoid damage to the phone.
The overall weight of the phone the pole is stated to support is 500grams.
The selfie stick comes in a blister pack which means the instructions are on a card on the back and joy of joys you do not need a magnifying glass to read the clear instructions.
The internal battery needs an hour to charge from empty, you know it’s fully charged when the red LED goes out.
The Kaiser Baas Selfie Pole is available from various places in Australia and New Zealand with a price equivalent of around £32.50. It should be available in the UK shortly.
