Can be very handy for some tasks
Inexpensive, yet works OK with its limited memory. Requires a free smartphone app or two, and maybe a little on-line reading, if this is a first use of an NFC chip. Writes and reads correctly when held against a smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Note 2). However these particular chips have relatively limited capacity (~130kB, hence the low price), so they may not hold enough data for some tasks such as longer contact details. Many tasks, however, can readily be installed, with the appropriate tasking app, such as switching wifi on/off, Bluetooth on/off, adjusting settings or running an app. For example, switch wifi/BT setting when getting in/out of a car, or running a slideshow or playing music when placed in a dock/holder).

Looks good, but doesn't fool an iPhone5
Even before apple introduced Lightning plugs with coded circuitry, it wasn't unusual for a generic plug to bring up an error on the iDevice it was being plugged in to, and this is even more likely on generic cords and adapters with Lightning plugs. This is especially likely when anything more than charging is needed, and unfortunately this is the case with this camera converter and card reader.

My iPhone 5 refuses to read a FAT formatted SD card, reporting the adapter itself as a non-approved device. I've managed to get an iPad 2 and an older style camera adapter to read an SD card occasionally, but even then it wasn't always accepted. It's even less likely now with the Lightning plug, but for the price it was worth a try.

Fits well, looks good on dark Galaxy Note 2
Focalprice image suggests this might be a leather-like case - it isn't. However, it is a very lightweight yet durable semi-transparent matt finish plastic case that snap-fits securely and hardly adds to the Samsung's overall size. The case leaves the top and bottom edges open, so plugs can be fully inserted without hitting the case. All other holes line up correctly with the camera, flash, speaker and on/off button. Some smartphone car holders don't accept phones when they're in a case, however this case is so thin it would probably still fit in most car holders designed for a Note 2.

Inexpensive, but longer than Samsung original
Much longer than original Samsung Galaxy Note 2 cable. Fairly thick cable with reinforced sleeve at plug entry to reduce likelihood of sharp bend cable breaks.

Handy when wanting to use a device while it's charging and the power point is under a desk just beyond reach of most USB cables.

Handy when ordering electronics from overseas
Small, but very useful around the AU/NZ home. As long as a device accepts 240vAC then this little adapter is probably all that's needed to plug a foreign sourced electrical device into an Australian or New Zealand AC outlet. Small and inexpensive, so it can be left attached to either the wall socket or the device's foreign power cord.

Very small, but it works OK
Looks like a genuine Apple cable product. So small it might easily get lost unless left attached to a USB cable or stored in an accessory case. Handy when travelling with several electronic devices, but with limited charging cable options.

Fits onto any Micro USB plug, but is a very tight fit and may be difficult to remove.

More useful than many other screwdriver sets
For home and occasional use, this is a very handy set of small screwdrivers that fits easily on a shirt pocket, although only 5 of the 6 bits fit inside the handle. Leaving one in the clamp may wear a hole in clothing.

Handle is made from a fairly soft alloy that scratches easily, and the pocket clip is also a bit weak, but overall it is robust enough for its intended light/occasional use.

One end of all the screwdriver shafts is the same size flat head driver, which is a wasted opportunity - 2 - 3 other driver heads/sizes could have been added. Or combining two of the specialist screwdrivers onto one shaft would have allowed only 5 shafts in the set, and then all would have fitted in the handle.

Still a very handy set compared to 3 other multi-head miniature screwdrivers I have where only one bit in each is much use. Besides repairing phones, it might also be very handy when changing watch batteries.

Surprisingly handy
If you have ever wondered why some USB outlets, especially cheap car cigarette-lighter chargers, don't always charge your phone, tablet or GPS device, then this little readout will sort out the good chargers from the bad, no matter what their spec sheet says the output current should be.

Plug it into any USB outlet, your phone or tablet power cable into the other side and a digital readout shows volts and amps passing down the line on an easy to read red LED display, swapping between each value every 4 seconds.

The see-thru case might add a bit of electronic interest for some users, but there's so little inside I think I'd prefer a regular opaque plastic case - say, black or white - so it looks like part of other electronic equipment, or a car console or dashboard.

Still very good value when you don't know which of your USB chargers to trust the most.

Very handy for owners of Android devices
For many PC owners, this could be the easiest way to transfer files to and from an Android smartphone or tablet. Plug this cable into an Android smartphone, plug any USB thumbdrive into the other end and phone should recognise the memory straight away.

Handy when traveling, and the small size would fit most pockets. Transfer vacation photos and large video files off the phone, so you can keep taking more.

Easily carried. Adaptable, no OTG cable needed
Although it's limited to 8GB, this USB flashdrive with OTG plug built-in would be very handy. Although a dedicated OTG cable could accept any thumbdrive available, this all-in-one unit leaves one less thing to pack when away from home or office. Very handy when having to share files with PC or Android smartphone owners.

Works fine transferring files between a PC and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, although transfer rate was slow with a 1.5GB video file, however the video played OK without stuttering from the flashdrive to the Samsung GN2.

Cover for the micro USB plug is very tight, but once off, could easily get lost.
