    Completely. I took a gamble and picked it up for £520 from evil bay (that included £26 special delivery). Add a £50 block from @Vault-Tec and I’m in for £570.

    My guess is the 3070 will be slower and a block will be nearer £100 when released. So around the same price as my (second hand) card + block.

    Yeah my kt list is growing, so far I have

    Drill driver
    Impact driver
    Jig Saw
    Circular Saw
    Detail Sander
    Mini router / trim tool
    Nail gun
    Reciprocating saw (now)
    Strimmer
    Lawnmower
    Hedge trimmer


    Looking at a RA Sander, project vac and possibly the compressor. Need to sort out some space first though. Need to actually build the storage units.

    I have a similar list, without nail gun, mower or jig or router. I can add pole saw, chainsaw, blower, torch and small vac.

    I picked up the 6 battery charger. It’s awesome.

    Those are tempting, I have 3 5ah and one 4ah battery I use but I have the fast charger so I never actually run out of power.
    They've started slowly releasing more new tools now as well.

    I have 2 official 2ah and 2 knockoff 6ah batteries.

    I have had no issues with the knockoff except on the chainsaw. The knockoff ones overheat rather quickly, while the official ones don’t.

    (Seriously, that's the largest I can paste that image into the forum? Pfft.)

    Nebo Big Poppy rechargeable convertible lantern. Collapsed, it's a 120lm smoothly-dimmable spotlight torch; extended, it's a 300lm smoothly-dimmable lantern with alternate "flame simulation" mode as pictured. Oh, and there's a USB port on it so you can use the internal battery to charge your phone in a pinch. Haven't tried that function yet, tho'!

    EDIT:
    Just gave the charging mode a quick go: it's enough to make my Nokia 7.2 go from "charging slowly" to "charging," but not enough to say "charging rapidly." 0.48A, according to the little USB Type-C power meter thing I've got 'ere.

    @Gareth Halfacree my sympathies, that looks like one hell of a suppository :eeek:

    Hooray - missed the Game and Smyths pre-orders overnight and whilst I'm sitting here getting frustrated with the DDOSed Currys page a mate informed me the Amazon was go.

    Probably more suited for Gareth's Nebo light. Also some clamps and position squares

    The release date is a bit strange, though. Everywhere I looked it says Nov 12. :eyebrow:

    A handful of regions are Nov 12 - US, Canada, Japan and some others, not the UK.
    19th is the rest of the world.

    Even though it might look like it, I don't live in these forums.

    Been playing stock-level whack-a-mole with this for ages. That's a good chunk of Miss_Tad's Christmas sussed.
