Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum , Purple (Renewed)

See Price


Description

Color:Purple The Dyson Ball Animal uses Radial Root Cyclone technology and a self-adjusting cleaner head to remove more dirt and microscopic allergens from the home. The brush bar bristles have been made shorter and stiffer allowing deeper carpet penetration to remove more dirt, while maintaining superior performance on hard floors. Ideal for allergy sufferers and pet owners, it has whole machine HEPA filtration and comes with extra cleaning tools.

Notes from the Community

The vacuum does a great job of picking up dirt, dander, and pet hair just as it advertises. Weve owned the vacuum for less than a week and were quite surprised how much pet hair is being pulled up from the rugs in our home.However, the Quality Control of Dyson for their refurb machines is unsettling. As the pictures attached show, the hardwood floor appears to have been used and abused by the previous owner. It has teeth marks all over and is covered in hair. Reading the enclosed letter stating that each part was inspected by a Dyson engineer to return it to like new status before going back into the market, I am baffled that something so obvious passed thru their review. It makes me uneasy about what other less obvious defects may be lurking in this or other equipment that was also not caught. Overall, Im rather disappointed by the expectations of superior quality and performance not being met. Slightly conflicted about this vacuum and could not quite give it 5 stars. When looking for a new vacuum almost everyone I know recommended this product. On the plus side, it is a great vacuum. The suction is very strong and I like that you can see how much dirt its picking up because of the clear plastic receptacle. Its actually kind of distressing how much dirt and fur is on everything when I see how full the receptacle is after one vacuuming, but it does confirm that the vacuum is doing the job, and gives me a sense of accomplishment. The dispenser is super easy to remove, empty and replace. The attachments are good quality and snap into place easily.So, as for the conflicted positive/negatives with this product: it is work vacuuming with this unit. Its on the heavy side, and takes a bit of muscle to steer it all around. That said, I can carry it upstairs in one hand with the convenient handle, so this is all relative. The cord is very long, which is mostly an excellent thing, but I do sometimes find myself tripping over it and getting it tangled around the vacuum or myself. Not the point where it would be a comedy routine, but enough to be a little annoying. The cord is not self-retracting, this is fine with me, but might be important to someone. Probably my biggest complaint with it is the hose for the attachments. Its an accordian style hose which is supposed to extend out x number of feet (6 maybe?). The hose constantly wants to retract to its shortest length and does not stay extended easily. This causes the vacuum to constantly be pulled closer to where you are vacuuming with the attachment. I feel like Im constantly fighting with it and pushing it away when using the attachments. Also neither the vacuum itself of the attachments are made to easily get under a bed or anything else that is pretty low to the floor. The shape of the attachment is not angled so that it can touch the floor if its not being held upright or near upright. Also the suction is so strong that you cant vacuum smaller mats or area rugs. They get sucked right into it. The attachment however can be used on these, but I dont feel it does as good of a job as the vacuum itself would do. This worked great the first time I used it. The next time it kicked a circuit breaker. Never had any issues with the circuit breaker before. Third time I used it, it kicked a circuit breaker and then would not start, it was dead. I contacted Dyson and they had me box it up and take it to the UPS store. After only having it 2 weeks I was not happy. I made the time to trek it over to the UPS store. They boxed it up and sent it to the repair shop. I just got it back. I took it out of the box and found the wheels that stabilize it were completely broken off. No information on what was fixed either. I contacted Dyson again as I cant use it without the wheels. After waiting on hold, finally got through. They told me to take it back to the UPS store and return it and they will send me a replacement, but dont have another animal in stock so they are sending the Dyson multi floor vacuum. I was told it is the same except it doesnt come with the same attachments. I was told to keep the attachments I have and it will work with the new one. I really wonder if it is the same. I can see it is less expensive, though that could be due to the attachments. I am really not happy having to find time to run across town for now a second return. I purchased this a month ago and still dont have one that works. I would not have purchased this had I known all the trouble I am going through. This is the first time I purchased a refurbished vacuum, I was a little nervous, but this is an AMAZING vacuum. I have three dogs, so having a good vacuum is a must. The only issue I have, with it being refurbished, is that the lock to keep it upright, or to release it is a little rough, but it cleans amazingly well, so I can deal with that little hiccup. Cant beat it for Dyson quality at this price!Update: this vacuum has stopped working. There is zero suction at all…very disappointed. I have contacted Dyson since I am just outside the 90 day warranty, so well see.One more update!!: I contacted Dyson and they set me up with a local repair shop to have the vacuum looked at and tested. They said that it stopped working because I use carpet powder…so I guess if you are someone that uses carpet powder, dont get this vacuum? Maybe I didnt read the vacuum instructions great, I didnt see that as a restriction, I have 3 dogs, we like the powder deodorizer and cleaner, so well have to figure something else out. I guess. A great deal? Not so fast there buddy. Ordered on todays deal for $199…Broken upon arrival, no suction, missing parts.Sent back to amazon and will not be ordering again. I guess thats what I get for buying refurbished. First I paid for Amazon prime to get free shipping and Express 2 day, except Amazon uses ups and well they didnt deliver till 4 days later. Ok, back to the vacuum. It worked great for all of 15mins, where at that point it locked up and became extremely hard to push or turn or use. Now I cant even use it, its like pushing a stack of bricks across the rug. There is also an issue with the handle and the way the vacuum stands it seems to be not straight.


Huntkey 6 AC Outlets Surge Protector with 2 USB Charging Ports 3.4 Amp, SMD607A

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

So I initially got this because I just wanted USB plugs. Now that I got it, I am VÉRY happy because it is a surge protector also. It even has a green light for grounding and orange light for surge protection. It is super easy to install with just one screw, but remember to remove the original plate over your outlet. It is just a single screw in the center. If you have never done this before, be careful not to say the screwdriver into the socket. LOL. And as you can see, the USB plug is at the top. There are actually two plugs, but Im only using one right now. It also only has one plug in the back so it is very easy to plug in versus some of the ones that I have seen have two plugs in the back that you have to line up perfectly. All in all, this was a smart buy for our kitchen, and already using it. Probably going to get another one for the living room. We have a few spots at our house where we dont have enough plugs, and this expands a two-plug outlet into a six-plug outlet, PLUS it adds a couple of easily accessible USB plugs. I had initially hoped to use it where we have a GFCI plug, but with the screw in the middle you cant secure it. Plus, the back of it clearly says that its not for use with a GFCI plug. Im not sure why the seller has it listed that it can be used with a GFCI plug. There is a odd placement of a wall outlet in my 112-year-old house. Maybe its 107, I dont remember at this moment in time. Well actually, there are a lot of strange placements. But while the wall outlet actually has been updated, It still doesnt function as well as it could. So I got the surge protector to plug into that wall outlet and it works great. I am sliding to eliminate the use of the USB wall plug in my house and just keep a few for travel just in case. I havent had any power outages or shorts or anything like that quite yet, however it has protected me and my devices for the past couple weeks and I am satisfied. I bought this on sale for much less than its regular price. I have not noticed a big improvement in terms of the quality of the fast charge on my smart phone so I am still using my own rapid charger and plug it into this item. What I do like is the convenience of not having to constantly trip over a power strip that gets in the way and looks messy and cluttered on the floor. Since the price was only around$13 I feel like I did not waste any money, and I certainly appreciate having it attach to the wall outlet, but I am not sure it is nearly as special as the description purports it to be. This surge protector is just what I needed for a tight space. It comes well packaged and can be used directly it an outlet with no modifications needed. The outlet spacing is well thought out and the width isnt too wide.The two usb outlets on the top are perfectly located and the LED indicators on the front allow you to see if you are protected from a distance. SO much better than those bulky surge protectors/power strips. I bought one for my house and I am currently talking my school district into switching over all my power strips in my business classroom (has 20+ computers) over to these. And a 3.4 amps it charges our phones very quickly! I will never purchase another cube again! This even comes with the screw in it ifbyou want to remove current outlet cover and secure this in. I didnt have a flat head screwdriver handy so I just plugged it in. Works great! I like that I dont have an outlet strip laying in the floor now plus I can charge my usb devices! Two of them! I have outlets that are controlled by a light switch, so having this surge protector only power off of one outlet is helpful as it is the one that is always on. This prevents any issues if I turn off the switch by accident, and it gives me many options as I use the USB charging ports as well.


Lefun Wireless IP Security Camera Indoor Camera with Motion Detection Night Vision 2-Way Audio Pan/Tilt/Zoom Supports 2.4G Wi-Fi for Home Surveillance Baby/Elder/Pet Monitor (C-White)

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

Best baby monitor for the price! Ok maybe a slight exaggeration as Ive only bought this Wi-Fi baby monitor. The other good reviews and the price lured me in. My husband and I have purchased two other monitors in the past year for my sons room (a lot more expensive, mind you). Neither are wifi monitors that connect to your phone. Theyre more the traditional camera and monitor setup. Anyway, we bought this one because we live on acreage and when we get too far from our house wed lose signal on our other monitor. I installed it yesterday afternoon (and by install, I just mean put it on a shelf, my husband will be the one to mount it on the wall). But the picture was so clear! The night vision was AMAZING. It blew our other monitor out of the water. I do have to say (and maybe its due to placement at the moment), it did pick up the white noise machine a lot more. But I loved that you could zoom (and the picture would stay clear) and pan/tilt. For reference on the zoomed in pictures, my sons room is large and he was juuuust low enough in the crib. But had he been on the other side, or if we moved the camera to where his other one is, Im sure Id have been able to see him breathe! Couldve used this when he was a newborn. Im sure there are far better ones that cost more money but I was thoroughly surprised and happy with how great this one was for the price! Im hoping to add more as I continue to use it and it replaces our other monitor. Ive had this camera for about a month now and I have to say Im really impressed! The set up was incredibly easy using the app and it was up and running in under 10 minutes. In the future, we are going to use to check on our cats when going on trips for a few days but for now Ive been testing it in various locations around my house to see how it performs.The picture is very clear (720p) and the motion detection works perfectly, even in the dark. I get a notification from the app every time someone/thing enters the field of view. At first I was receiving too many notifications but I turned the sensitivity down and now it is tuned correctly. I also inserted a microSD card and it takes snapshots and brief videos of all the times the motion sensor goes off. One last thing I think is cool is the ability to control the cameras direction just by swiping on the current live display in the app.There are still features I havent tried out yet (IP camera for one) but I can say that this camera is well worth the cost. I wasnt sure how this camera was going to work but I am pleasantly surprised at how well this camera has turned out! To start, once I downloaded the app, the set up was pretty easy. I was able to get the camera up and running in no time.The app has a very simple. easy to use interface. There you can set the time, alarm, notifications. Also when on the map, you are able to not only view the camera but also record a video or take a snapshot that is saved to the device. You have three options on how to save the video or pics, you can insert an SD card (not included), use the cloud storage offered through the app or save straight to your device.The quality the camera provides is AMAZING. I did not think the quality would be this good. One of the best features the camera offers is your ability to control the view of the camera vertically and horizontally straight from your smartphone! With this feature you are able to get a full view or the space you are trying to view. The camera also offers two way communication which you can control through the app. You can talk and listen together or do either or. You also have the option of displaying the time and date on the screen.Overall, this a very good camera for the price that you are paying for it. It gives some of the more expensive cameras a run for their money! I would definitely recommend this camera! The camera works great! Quick and easy to set-up and connect to the internet, which can be done through wireless or ethernet cable (they provide an ethernet cable). The camera has a night-vision function to be able to see in the dark and it works surprisingly well! The video definition is really crisp and you can adjust brightness and other things.The camera also comes with a wall mount so you can install it easily to the wall so it can be out of reach of pets or little kids.The app you download to use the camera from your phone is easy to use and can be used to talk through the camera, which is great and useful for quick communication.Overall, this is a great buy and definitely worth it for such a good price the camera is very cute in design and is in a perfect size. It took me a while to set up because we use 5G connection. After I found out it uses 2G, after I switched my wifi setting, it all went easy. One other thing is that the camera took a little bit time to turn it on. But once its on, its great!!!!! I am very pleased or I should say surprised with the quality. Its very fun to pan around the camera and it is so AWESOME!!! I bought this for spying my dogs. Now I can see what they are doing while we are away, or I should say now I would know who is the actual criminal without have to punish everyone. Now I have a new toy to play with my dogs and even talk to them while we are gone!! Very pleased!!!! I really liked this camera. Its an indoor security camera with functions such as, recording (via memory card or cloud or local cloud), you can take pictures, it has audio for the video and you can talk through it if you wanted. Those are just some of the features, theres also ways you can set schedules to record or alerts if motion is detected. This camera does it all and its a lot cheaper than the competitors. I use the mobile app but there is a computer app as well that works. I like that if Im in the app I can view the live feed and record via my mobile. Its really a seemless setup and works great. I have yet to run in to any issues as the app is well built too. You can string more than one camera feed as well but I only have the one on my front door. Overall I do think this is a really good security or surveillance camera.


Power Strip, Anker 3-Outlet & 3 PowerIQ USB Ports Surge Protector Power Strip, PowerPort Strip 3 with Overload Protection, Electronic Microswitch, Safety Door, 5 Foot Extension Cord, for Home, Office

Notes from the Community

I am a very loyal customer of Anker, but this product exceeded my expectations. The product description says it charges with a total of 18W across the three powerIQ USB charging ports. However, I plugged in my iphone X and measured the charging power to be 22.8W. In other words, this unassuming power strip ROCKS the charging speed. (Note: charging speed seems to have to do with what % the battery is charged - from my measurements it seems to start off fast and then slow down as the phone gets closer to 100%.)Other features: it has 3 tiny blue lights, so if youre charging in your bedroom you may need to cover the lights with tape. Fortunately it defaults to on when you plug it in, and I havent had issues with it turning itself off.(Note: in contrast, if youre considering the round charger it defaults to off and turns itself off when you unplug all the cables.) I want to tell you some detail about this product.This PowerPort Strip 3 can work with input voltage 100~240V, you can tell from the Amazon description(Note: Supports international 100-240V 50/60Hz outlets.). But it says support 125V on the bottom(from the photo) . I contacted Anker and the engineer team said that there have verified that the PowerPort Strip 3 can work with input voltage 100V - 240V.According to the new changes in FCC(Federal Communications Commission) certification requirements, it is not allowed to print 100V - 240V on the product itself. Thats why its different between the Amazon Note and the product description.So it can be used overseas if you have the appropriate plug adapter. Just remember if you use it this way, dont forget that if you plug anything into it, the device you plug in would need to be capable of 240V too(not a converter). The USB outputs will work fine.Ankers customer service is awesome! Well packaged as are all anker products. I planned on using this in my garage to give me some flexibility as the north facing wall only has two outlets. Everything was working fine until I had one device plugged into an outlet and one device or battery charging via usb. This anker charger began to produce a loud high pitched tone. Only got worse when I tried to charge two iPhones. I thought the problem was the usb chargers, which arent rapid chargers, but a day after not using the usbs And strictly the outlets I began to hear the high pitched tone.Sadly this is going back. Wasted time and am still looking for a surge protector with multiple usbs.Update: not long after posting this review Anker customer service reached out to see how they could help. They sent a new power strip and apologized for the defective unit I received. The replacement works great! Anker fixed an issue I had and I appreciate that a lot. Thanks Anker! UpdateAfter my original review Anker customer service contacted me and offered a different product to try but unfortunately the replacement that they send was a return defective product. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT A COMPANY LIKE ANKER WOULD SEND ME DEFECTIVE RETURN PRODUCT AS REPLACEMENT WITH OUT MAKING SURE IT WORKS PROPERLY . My experience is very negative 👎.I wanted to replace my old power bar with new Anker power strip but unfortunately for me it doesnt work(pictures attached) I cant really use all 3 outlets as they are too close to my needs. Actually Anker power strip is bigger than my old one but it cannot even hold 2 power adapters and a nite light, I wished they had listed the space between each outlet.The build quality is great. Functionally everything works, so you get what you see, 3 outlets, 3 USB. I would say its perfect a basic entertainment center setup (TV, cable box, speaker/receiver), with 3 USBs for fire tv, Chromecast, or whatever else you might want plugged in.Id like to have seen more plug outlets, however the 3 it comes with are spaced so you never have an issue with larger adapter plugs.This does have a power control button. Unlike other devices from Anker, this doesnt just toggle the USB slots, so be mindful especially if this isnt ideal for you. On the plus side, if youre going away and like to save money on residual energy use, this helps without having to unplug the whole thing.Overall very happy with it, as always happy with Anker products by and large. It has a solid feel. I travel extensively, and after a whole lot of time, Ive determined that the single best way and less intrusive bulky way to connect anywhere is the world you find yourself is to take a plug adapter and a strip. Nowadays you have your iPhone, laptop, watch, and whatever else to charge. Why bring along several international plug solutions when you can just bring one international plug and connect that to the strip. Everything else plugs into the strip, wether its USB or strait out normal power plug. The exception would be u can bring an extra laptop international plug for when u leave the strip at the hotel and take your laptop somewhere else. Its great! This product is portable , light, fits in your carry on or back pack, and its the great dependable ANKER quality. Cant go wrong! Anker makes sturdy products that work, and this power strip is no exception. I like its plug that fits almost flush against the wall behind my desk, and the rectangular strip is narrow enough that I dont even notice it snugged up to the wall.Other great features are the USB ports and the power outlets that are far enough apart so I can plug in multiple transformers and theyll actually fit. Its a miracle! Great little strip, fits all my usb charge cables nicely and I can use all three outlets with standard 3 pronged connectors. Only downside is that it does not have friendly access to old-timey brick chargers if you plan on using all three with bricks. I love that the connection is flat and extends the cord to the right. Its just the layout I needed, although if you need to travel the cord left, it might lose half a foot in length.Total length is about 5ft for the cord only, plus 9 inches for the power strip.


Huntkey 2-Outlet Wall Mount Cradle with Dual 2.1 AMP USB Charging Ports, SMD407

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

They completely lie about the USB specs. Each USB port only puts out .5A , even when used alone. At no time was I able to get one of them to output 2.1A. I have a USB power meter and measured both USB ports. What a sham product! Seems well-made, everything works as it should, and its very convenient. Im using it in standard American style three prong outlets and it grips quite well. Feels secure and stable with little to no wobble or chance of falling away in the middle of the night.The phone cradle works great and I dont lose any outlets. A good price considering it includes the USB chargers as well. Bought this for a gift for my husband. He is on 24 hour call and needs to hear the ring, but he keeps it on the counter in the bathroom, so we dont hear the repeated ping of the all night e-mails. He now can put it up in the cradle without worrying that his phone will get accidently splashed. I kind of loved this the moment i saw the listing. The fact that it was deal of the day made it even sweeter! I love that i can use the receptacle as well as charge devices at the same time. Its perfect for room that dont have enough receptacles to charge devices as well as plug in lamps and laptops---like my condo! Love at first sight online and loved it even more with first use! Great buy vs. $25 built-in from the box stores. Wired in a built in unit for my friend before discovering this on Amazon. Easy mount, looks great, and best of all its easily transportable. Great for when you go out of town. No need to take along multiple charge adapters, just unplug, throw in bag and go! A+ I ended up ordering a second one as my daughter liked mine so much I left the first one with them. I like that there is room to plug in my lap top on the same outlet that allows phone charging. Apple plugs are rather large, this space does work. I will leave in my suitcase for those hotel rooms that have too few outlets. Shouldve been able to add a center screw or plug into both sides of an outlet because it just falls out of the outlet too easily. The blurb says It can deliver a full 2.1A charge to a single device, but that isnt true for my iPhone and iPad. Measured with a meter, it only charges at 1A, even though Ive tried several known-good lightning cords.It mounts nicely to a wall, and looks good, but it cant be screwed into the outlet so, if I dont hold it against the wall, when I pull out a USB cord the entire unit falls off the wall.


Grillaholics Grill Mat - Set of 2 Heavy Duty BBQ Grill Mats - Non Stick, Reusable, and Easy to Clean Barbecue Grilling Accessories - Lifetime Manufacturers Warranty

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

UPDATE: It appears Amazon has corrected the auto link to Ankeres. It now links to the correct Grillaholics link to purchase.BEWARE: I have purchased four of these mats from Grillaholics and have been very pleased. The current buy it now defaults to a Chinese counterfeit product that is made of unsafe material and of low quality. They have hijacked Grillaholics link. You will have to choose other sellers rather than the buy it now due to Amazons defaulting to the lower priced fakes. If you purchased one from Ankeres, I highly suggest you return it as it is unsafe.This is what the fake buy now looks like:Sold by Ankeres and Fulfilled by Amazon. Gift-wrap available. This mat works great. After reading about other people having issues with the grease accumulating on it and the recommendation was to use paper towels to soak it up during the grilling, I thought to myself that there has to be another solution to this problem. I decided to take a utility knife and cut randomly open slots on it (see photo). I am pleased to say that it was the solution to this problem. My food came out perfectly and I had no problems with the grease issue. I grilled chicken which is well known for flare ups, which I had none. The meat slid right off the mat and clean up was a breeze. The company that makes these probably should consider putting small holes throughout their mats. I was really skeptical of grill mats in general but, after doing a lot of looking around, picked up these from Grilaholics based on the number of good reviews and the reasonable price. I figured if they were going to melt all over my grill (which I still cant believe they didnt) I didnt want to waste a lot of money on them. After having used them a few times I can say they would be a bargain at twice the price. Im probably going to get an extra pair to have in the RV. At the end of the day Im going to end up saving a ton in non-stick spray!I love that they are delivered flat (thought they would come rolled up and Id have to press them with books for a week) and after a quick wash are ready to use. I have a charcoal grill and like to bring the heat right up to the grate to sear the meat for a few seconds and the mats took it like a champ, grill marks even transferred through.Cleaning the mats is much easier than cleaning the cast iron grill grates, just make sure you give them a proper wiping off with a paper towel before placing them in the dishwasher.These will also be great to take to the park when we go out for the day - Ive never thought I would actually use the public grills before, but with these I wont worry.If youve been hesitant about getting a grill mat, dont be. First off, as a self-proclaimed grilling aficionado and a BBQ purist, I dont typically use anything but hardwood lump coal and a match, but I thought Id give this a try. Simply put, this mat is amazing! Let me break down the benefits…1) Taste: Ive used similar grill mat products and experienced a burned-plastic taste (which other reviewers warned me about). Not with this grill mat. This mat preserves the integrity of whatever Im cooking.2) Heat transfer: I prefer my steaks seared but not charred, so I get the coals nice and hot (at least 600 degrees) and sear both sides. This mat not only allows the heat through, but I can even get those highly coveted grill marks through the mat! Major plus in my book. Plus, when Im cooking something greasy like burgers or brats, theres no arm hair-singing grease fire. Not even an occasional flare-up, which is great, considering arm hair is a requirement of a true backyard BBQer.3) Clean up: Arguably, my least favorite part about grilling is the clean up. I like to create a mess, not clean one up. When Im done using this mat, I can literally walk it inside (its cool to the touch) and wipe it down with a paper towel and throw it in the dishwasher. Done. Ive even started taking a spare mat with me to the grill in the neighborhood park. Those public grills are disgusting, but with my trust grill mat, my food never touches the rusty, Hepatitis-laden grates.Oh, and Id be remiss not to mention the utility of these mats, too. On the days that Im cooking inside, I use this mat in the oven. Baking cookies? Slap one of these bad boys down on the baking sheet and no more scraping burned cookie remnants off of the metal sheet. Cooking a roast? Put this on the bottom of the pan and presto! Clean up has never been easier. I even used the mat as a catch-all below a pie pan (no one likes when your whole man-lair (read: house and kitchen) smells like burned toast.Overall impression: Two man-thumbs up!


Enther Meal Prep Containers 3 Compartments & Single Compartment Parent

Notes from the Community

These containers are defective. Unfortunately the return window has closed but in the few weeks weve been using these almost all of them have cracked and completely fallen apart. We do not even put them in the fridge/freezer or dishwasher. We simply use them to transport sandwiches and snacks for lunches. Some of them developed cracks after one use, and some have shattered completely. Dangerous and very disappointing! Ive really enjoyed these containers as they have made life easier for my husband and me. I always cook too much food for a single meal so that we will have leftovers, but the food sometimes went to waste because we sometimes avoided digging out what we wanted from a few large containers. With these containers, I prepack a bit of the meat, vegetables or what-have-you in each container. We can just grab one container and have a complete meal to warm in the microwave. This makes it great for taking to work as well, which saves lots of money! No more leftovers going bad in the back of the fridge! In my household, they pay for themselves in a week or so.These containers are sturdy and last for years. This is my second order, not because they were damaged, but because some got lost. They were a very good quality for my needs. These bento boxes are INCREDIBLE. I have my 88 YO, mostly independent, father living with us. I can make him meals, or snack plates of cheese and grapes, and he can help himself. If he wants something warm the microwave very well, and if he wants to save some for later the lid pops back on. They are light so he can hold one easier than a plate to move it back and forth. The depth and ridgidness help him grasp it well. The rest of us have started using them constantly also. Leftovers to send with hubby to work, I made a no bake cheesecake in one to go to a slumber party. And cheap enough if I dont get them back I dont panic. Love these. Work great for meal planning. Easy to clean and hold everything. So far no problems with leaks. Dishwasher and microwave safe! I would recommend. Got these containers today. Warmed up my rice in the microwave without the lid and the meal prep box caught on fire. A hole burnt through the container. Very disappointed. Waste of my funds. I liked the value I got and even though the containers are lightweight they are very rigid and durable. They are also dish washer and micro wave safe and seem to be holding up very well with no warping or anything. They seal up well and click on solidly when you attach the lid. I wouldnt use them for runny liquids but for normal food they are fantastic. Also they stack on top of each other in the fridge very well and even more so when disassembled in the cupboard… you can put 50 of these things in a very small 12 by 6 space. I want to throw all my other mismatched containers away now that are constantly falling out of the cupboard when Im rustling around trying to find a lid that matches. I would recommend to anyone wanting a good quality product for a very reasonable cost. I have been using these containers for about a month now, and I love the size and everything about them.However -I put one in the microwave today, only to reheat a yam, it was in the microwave for about 20 second and sparked up and burnt a hole in the bottom of the container. Ive never had this problem before, maybe it was just a defect in this one container?Not sure, but stay close to the microwave if heating up food in these containers. These are a life-saver for me. I have multiple food sensitivities and allergies so, I take my own food everywhere. They are compact and have a great seal with no leakage but, you have to thoroughly close them around the edges. The only mishap I had was when I microwaved an oil-based food for too long and too high, and it melted. Highly recommended for work and travel.

Very bright and works very good with the music Did not install as directed since hiding the wire under the inner rocker panel would have been near impossible in my 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche, so I installed the plug/and remote control up front then put the first set of LED strips under the driver/passenger dash and ran the wires under the console to the rear and zip-tied the led strips to a support bar underneath the seats (full power adjustable seats mean there is no save or secure place to mount the strips otherwise.They look great during the day and incredible at night, I like how the brightness is adjustable on the remote, which does everything I want it to.If you want different colors or custom lighting then download the app, having been burnt by apps that go along with things like drones or action cameras, I wasnt expecting much but the govee home app is not bad, setup was a breeze and customizing the lighting was also quick and easy. Super easy to install, got done in 10mins. Did install in day time so had to wait till dark to actually see how bright are the lights. And was surprised to see the result later that day as they were just perfect. Super easy to pair with phone app as well. Over all a product worth the money. Worked well . I bought these for when I take my Jeep on the beach the inside of the car could light up for my kids I thought it would be neat. I just ordered another set for more lights in the car as well. Pretty cool and very easy to install in my PT Cruiser. The directions were clear and it works like a charm. The lights are nice and bright at night and the lights sync up with my music. Ive downloaded the Govee App and it syncs with my lights very easy. This product was extremely valuable for the money I paid to get them. The lights are CRAZY bright, the changing colors with the beat is a super cool feature to people, and its cool that it does a little light show when you turn on your car. I do have a Bluetooth radio adapter to listen to music in my car, and it seems I have a grounding issue, so I hear a high pitched noise when both are on from my music. I just go into this devices app and turn off the lights if I bugs me too much. Other than that, its a sick mod for an unbelievable deal that is easy for anyone to use! This product is really cool! Its worth the purchase. I dont usually leave more than just a rating, but I felt the need to add video with this product. Beware there are pros AND cons.Pros:Super easy to install!App interface is intuitiveWires are easily hiddenApplication, with full light spectrum and effects.Fits my Beetle 2.0T Coast perfectly!Cons:I drive a compact vehicle, something like a crossover is too big for this set up. Smaller sedans should be fine, I had to tuck away excess cables.The music setting. Playing with the microphone sensitivity setting is a must for the music setting. With rock music the mic switches from vocals to bass, depending on which one is prominent. With hip-hop/pop it typically sticks to the bass, as seen in the video. If I can, Ill add videos of different genres later.Light strips are smaller than what the advertisements lead you to believeSlight odor when you first open the package. Clears up fast. Got these for my older Jeep since my overhead light has gone out and I love them. I do animal transports and sometimes need to see whats going on and these lights make it super easy. I keep remote up by me, and have also synced them to the iPhone app. Theyre bright enough to see the entire interior, but not be too much of a glare at night on the lower setting.
