    Battlefield 1 for £4.49
    Battlezone (the new one) for £7.49

    After a year and a bit of no real gaming (I thought I was through with it), i'm back on the bandwagon! Looking forward to a shortish but sweet single player campaign from B1, and the occasional neon-Tron goodness from BZ in surround-o-vision when I fancy a quick shooty killy game.

    We all have that silly thought at some stage.

    Third-party Huawei battery equivalent
    , (no extra charge for the "Volatge" typo) and...


    [​IMG]

    Knockoff iSclack tool
    .

    The battery in my Huawei P9 has been having problems for *ages* - like, it'll take half the day to go from 100% to 40% but thirty seconds to go from 30% to 0%, and there's a non-zero chance that if you activate the camera while it's under 40% battery the whole thing will crash and claim it's out of power - so figured I should finally do something about that. £20-odd all in, and while removing the glued-in original battery was an absolute ball-ache the results speak for themselves: used the thing on a family trip to the National Railway Museum yesterday and still had a good 30% charge left at the end of the day, no crashes.

    Now if only Huawei had actually bothered to release the Android 8.0 update for non-Chinese handsets...

    Cheap Motorola E5 as an interim replacement after having my actual phone stolen on boxing day. I've only used it for a couple of days but I'm not sure there's a better way to spend £80 on a phone. I like it so much that I might just chuck both my SIMs in it and run it as my daily for work and personal until something new catches my eye.

    Budget Motorolas are properly good in my experience. Amazing the specs and build you can get for your money these days.

    Isn't this likely to be a calibration issue with your phone, rather than necessarily an issue with the battery itself? Ignore me if you've already ruled this out, of course :)

    Nup: known fault whose only fix is a new battery. Last Huawei I ever buy, I'll tell you that!

    I normally always get a 8 or 16gb micro for my phones, so this time I decided to splash out a little given the sound quality of the BB Keyone.

    My kingdom for a tube of sodding TIM !

    I also got a 2.8a charger for the phone. PC is taking ages to charge it, though it lasts forever.

    [​IMG]

    Then I stumbled upon these.

    [​IMG]

    £36.99 for six RGB fans. With a remote, with a proper hub.

    Was expecting them to be absolute garbage, but Youtube says otherwise.



    Right now I am running three different odd fan types in this machine, so that really was a no brainer.

    Probably a good job it's your last. The ceo has recently said "We won't change for anyone because that's Huawei, ah-ha ah-ha, we like it, ah-ha ah-ha."

    The form factor is called "2280" because it's 22mm wide & 80mm long, so about the same size as a credit card sliced in half longways.

    Still melt my mind when you have that and a 500Gb SSD which is far bigger. An yes I know its smaller if you take it out the enclosure.

    Next purchase, stubby cables 12cm atx 24 cable for example

    You mean a LOT smaller? That's the 1TB 860 QVO, btw, courtesy of Anandtech. There is good reason to believe their 4TB QVO looks the same internally.
