PROS
good built quality good enough sound quality manual translated into English comes with bicycle fitting (where the water bottle normally sits)
CONS
can't disable alarm button
Got this in the hope to give it to my children under 5 since it's advertised as drop-proof and water resistant. There is also the image provided by the manufacturer showing a small child dropping the unit. Turns out that this is really designed for cyclists, not anyone else since it comes with a bicycle-fitting and has this 'Alarm' button which is meant to work as a warning bell of some sorts. Unfortunately, this button emits a sound that is best described as a super-high pitched 'beep' normally found in smoke detectors or rape alarms. You can't disable it so there's no way I can give this speaker to a child. No wonder the child in the image is dropping the thing! It probably pressed the interesting-looking button with a bell on it (and who can blame it)... So apart from the 'Cycling' in the item title there's no real indication as to what this is designed for. They could have included a picture of someone having it fixed to their bicycle frame. FT, if you're reading this, you might want to amend the item description.

Good build quality for the price
CONS
24-hour display just for show
I was disappointed to find that the 24-hour analog dial is simply for show. The hands move in the traditional way ie the hour hand will move round the dial twice in a day. In hindsight, I should have asked CS to confirm prior to ordering. Lesson learned.

PROS
Looks cool
CONS
Instruction manual only in Chinese Battery life only 1hour roughly
Bought this on a whim that it might help with vapor from e-cigarettes in the car. I haven't really got confirmation that it does as I still have to open the windows anyway. Can't visibly see the vapor being eliminated. Having said that I am still using it when traveling on longer journeys. Battery life is short but it does come with a car-charging adapter. The solar panel is weak and will not replace the cable power supply in reality. As there are no replacement filters listed as of now I am not sure how long it will be in service before I will have to chuck it.

PROS
sturdy rubber feet on underside rubber protection in cradle slit for charger cable to sit while on stand
CONS
no rubber protection for the back of the phone
great item that's very useful especially as the cut-outs mean you can charge the phone while it's on the stand. sturdy enough so you can still use the touchscreen on the phone without the stand tipping over. the only con is that it's all metal so the back of the phone will sit on this without protection. could potentially scratch more sensitive phone casings.

bought these here as you can pay through the nose trying to get similar on popular retail sites. The colour choice you get is dismal so I went for grey which seemed least ugly. - still not fashionable but it does the job. They come with 3M (styled?) adhesive strips which are pretty sticky. Good job too as the little ones find it impossible not to try prying it off...
