A bit hit and miss those things...a mate bought one and the first time he (I) used it a few months later it was dead.

I had the traditional lead acid one for 6 years nary a problem - til it was stolen .

I have one. You're supposed to charge it once a month to keep it working. Mine seems to be pretty decent. It got great reviews on all the review sites and so on. I bought it as my Street Triple has had a few electrical issues and I just wanted to have it there in case I got stranded. I suspect it's next use will be firing my Buell back to life, as I think the immobiliser that is fitted drinks battery power.

I have just spent a ridiculous amount on running leggings. One pair have Cookie Monster on and I couldn’t say no.

I have received an email from the Artek service team with an update on how to connect the jump starter to a vehicle :-

___________________________________________

To ensure that you are able to start the car successfully. Please make sure you follow the below steps to start the car.
1. Connect the jump clamp to the jump starter firstly. The cable's indicator is blinking.
2. Press the button on the cable for 3 seconds till you hear a da voice, then the cable's indicator will become solid green.
3. Connect the jump clamp to the battery of the car then.
4. Start the car.

___________________________________________

Not too sure on some of the grammar within the notification but it suggests a better way of utilising the device different to those within the package.

Merlin Derrington Jacket.

Like this one but a fair bit cheaper at £149. Thumbs Up Been looking for a brown leather jacket for a while.

I did also hire a large room for storage purposes as I begin to clear Chez Grr away ready for builders to start.

A dark and deadly trailer.
Well, when I say "bought" ... I've made an agreement to buy it, from a fairly kosher seeming sort of chap.
Just got to find someone with a towbar to get it over to my house, now ... Laughing

Cool

Bought an FX 3 stage air rifle pump.
Absolute snip at £55 from a seller on FB marketplace considering it hadn't even been assembled, let alone used.

A motorcycle cable repair kit.
