It sits easily on your desk and provides a safe, concentrated warmth to keep you productive. Say goodbye to blankets and summertime sweaters. This 250-Watt desktop ceramic heater features fan-forced heating to distribute warm air around you quickly and evenly. This personal electric heater includes a convenient rear on/off switch and a power indicator light so you won't accidentally leave it on. It operates quietly, so you won't become distracted by annoying noise. The personal heater features an overheat protection sensor that prevents it from getting too hot and stay-cool housing to prevent burns. The safe design ensures you can place it in close proximity on your desk and move it as needed. This desktop heater can help lower home heating costs by using less energy than larger models and effectively warming the space you are in, rather than the whole house.

          This is a nice little personal heater. The heating area is not that large. Only heats one side of you or body at a time. Works better in enclosed spaces. It's cool to the touch on the sides and back. Only hot where the heat is coming out. I do wish there was a knob or switch to control or rather increase/decrease the output. It does have a long card so you can place it where you want. It's really nifty. Travel size in my opinion. The directions are easy to understand and the packaging is nice as well.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish
          Cons: no knob to increase or decrease temperature

          The MILWAUKEE M12 large Heated AXIS Layering System with GRIDIRON Work Shell s are designed to protect users from the coldest weather conditions on the job site. Powered by M12 REDLITHIUM Battery Technology, the AXIS heated work jackets use carbon fiber heating elements to create and distribute heat to the chest, back and shoulders. A one-touch LED controller heats up the battery heated jacket to three heat settings, creating a comfortable heat for any environment or weather. The heated jacket has a new Quick-Heat function that allows users to feel heat three times faster than our previous jackets and market competitors. Like all of Milwaukee's other products, these jackets are built strong to last long with new AXIS Ripstop Polyester providing a lightweight, compressible design that can be used as an inner layer or mid-layer jacket and protects users from wind and water to survive the elements. Paired with M12 Heat On Demand, the optimal insulation in both jackets provides users with ultimate warmth. GRIDIRON Ripstop Polyester delivers durability without sacrificing mobility so users can survive the job site. The heated coats are available in black. These s come with the M12 battery heated jacket and GRIDIRON work shell, one M12 REDLITHIUM CP2.0 battery and an M12 compact charger and power source. Gender: male. Age Group: adult.

          Let's get the cons out of the way first. For me, the directions weren't that easy to follow as far as operating the different modes on the fleece. This is my first Milwaukee jacket so this may just be me. The second is battery life. On low and medium settings, mostly low you can run this jacket all day. But not on high. The battery doesn't last the entire day. Now with the pros. Wow! This jacket is amazing. Its warm even with the battery on. Both the insert and the outer layer. The insert has 3 different setting: high, medium, and low. It also has duel heat which warms your shoulders. I'm in love this jacket. Its getting cold around here and I will definitely be wearing it.

That would definitely help. The packaging was also very well done. Outstanding! Read Less

          These respirators are pretty great! I use them for clean, wood work, and indoor ranges. They really help to filter the air you're pulling into your body. The elastic bands are comfortable and the malleable metal piece allows you to look the respirator into place. Sort of like personalizing it. What I can say is that the packaging isn't the greatest. It's pretty flimsy especially when wet. But the products inside come in a plastic bag that protects them.

          These gloves are awesome. So far I've used to them garden, and pull up weeds. The diamond texture provides great grip that makes pulling weeds or even gripping a slippery tool pretty easy. The rubber is thick and not easily penetrated. You can put them on and pull them off, no problem because they are powder free. The packaging is nice and compact and makes storage super easy. Just reach in the box and grab a glove or two.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish

          DESCRIPTION: Native Soil is a natural fertilizer made from nutrient-rich organic waste products that are sustainably-sourced and sold in the United States. A unique blend of powdered algae and kelp, dehydrated beer grains, sterilized municipal waste and food scraps creates a high quality, sustainable product that improves your soil and helps your plants really pop. Plants need a handful of specific nutrients to thrive things like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. While most fertilizers provide these basic nutrients, Native Soil goes even further to provide organic matter and carbon. Its a synthetic-free, all-in-one solution for a bountiful yield, week-after-week of the entire growing season. USES: Fertilize new and existing plants, mix into your soil as a conditioner, mix into your compost or run it through your hydroponic system (drip irrigation is not recommended unless you have a good filter). Your tomatoes, fruit trees, flowers, hemp and grasses will bloom longer, stronger and with superior flavor.

          I'm loving this natural fertilizer. The grains are small and seep into the already present soil. The instructions are easy to follow and there isn't a bad smell. During the application, the smell is reminiscent of sweet Tabasco sauce or tobacco. Doesn't change the color of the soil and the plants and grass seem to enjoy it. I got the 4 lb bag and I used to on my small front yard and flower pots. I still have over 3 lbs left so it will last you a while before you have to refill.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality, Multi Use

          Answer: 
          You have to push the handle through with the plastic washer attached. Once the handle is through the plate, you need to slide the d-ring over the lip of the inserted handle. It took me a few times reading the directions.

          The Kalamera 18-Bottle built-in Wine Cooler is a great way to start your own home wine collection. It is a single zone cooler, so you can set the temperature that is perfect for the wines you love. It's the perfect size for a small collection, holding 18 bottles, niched in their own spaces on sliding beechwood racks. You can see them displayed through the dark glass window set in sleek stainless-steel door. It can be installed under a counter, and only takes 12" of width, so it fits in most homes, and it works if you want to display it in other rooms as a freestanding wine refrigerator. The low-noise/low-vibration design keeps the cooler quiet, and your wine chilled and tasting just as it's meant to, with no disruption of wine sediments to muddy the taste. This cooler is a cost-effective way to have an elegant start to your own wine collection. Enjoy! Color: BLACK.
