          I bought these cotton flannel sheets because we actually do get some colder weather on Florida's West coast. We had never tried Cotton Flannel previously, (we use cotton percale), and weren't sure if they would be too warm. We tried them with the air conditioning on, since it is still summer, and discovered we are going to be really happy with them. They will, in fact, be used for the colder winter months when our heat in on but they are soft, comfortably warm, and very cozy. We have a queen sized bed with a thicker mattress and both sheets fit as they should. Pillow cases also are sized properly and slide on easily. The thickness of the material seems just right.

          The Smartech JSL-950 Vehicle Jump Starter/Power Bank with Accessories can instantly jump start most single battery vehicles up to 20 times on a single charge. With built-in AC and DC charging ports, the JSL-950 is capable of powering standard 120-Volt household appliances and 12-Volt accessories like travel stoves or automotive accessories. Using its dual USB charging outputs, the JSL-950 can also be used to charge any 5-Volt USB rechargeable devices! Safety features include low voltage protection (for the product itself), spark proof, reverse polarity protection, and short circuit protection. The JSL-950 comes complete with an automotive jump starter, capable of jumping most automotive passenger vehicles. Using an impressive 950 crank amps of power, the JSL-950 can even jump trucks and passenger vans. Located on the rear of the portable power station is a 150 psi air compressor, fully capable of filling the tires on any passenger vehicle and most commercial vehicles, as long as the tire is rated at 150 PSI or below. With an air pressure gauge clearly visible on the back, you will always know exactly how much pressure is in your tire. Included below the carrying handle is an integrated ultra-bright flashlight to ensure that you have light no matter what situation you find yourself in.

          Very powerful and versatile, reasonably lightweight (19 lbs), power station. After receiving this power station/air compressor, I charged it overnight, with included charger, before use. The manual states 10 hours for recharge with automatic overcharge protection when using wall outlet A/C power. It does not have this protection when recharging from DC so you have to monitor it. I then used the air compressor function to check the tire pressures in both our cars and bikes.

With current hurricane season in Florida it's nice to know I have reasonably long emergency backup power for our radio and phones with AC, DC, and USB outlets provided, (many days with intermittent use). I tried the battery clamps on our Subaru Outback and they fit properly. I have not as yet needed to jump start our car but the 950 amps supplied is greatly in excess of the cars 550 amp battery so it should easily do the job. Manual states it will do multiple restarts (approx 20), without the need for recharging the battery. Has battery status indicator to let you know when the unit needs recharging . Battery cable clamps are clearly color labeled and unit warns you if you have them connected incorrectly. This is a very functional, well designed and constructed unit to have for both maintenance and emergencies. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design, ac dc usb outlets, 950 amps starting power, 800 peak watts, 400 continuous use watts, battery status indicator, nozzle and needle attachment for air toys, light for nighttime use

          This 15 foot long extension cord is very well designed for it's intended purpose. It is much less expensive that a heavier gage grounded extension cord and does a nice job for things such electric fans and lamps.
          In our house some of the wall outlets are wall switched so I use these to reach from that outlet to where I want our bedroom or living room lamps. With 3 outlets on the extension cord, I can control 2 lamps on one wall switch. While not grounded, it is polarized and has on outlet cover for those outlets not in use. It is also reinforced on the end to reduce wear. Plugs fit snugly into the extension cord outlet and don't tend come loose. It is rated at 13 amps.
          Pros: Easy to Use, strain relief neck, polarized, 3 outlets, cover for unused outlets, inexpensive

          Achieve the versatility and ease you need when preparing your meals. The Magic Chef Multi-cooker is a programmable 9-in-1 multi-cooker that combines the function of a slow cooker, pressure cooker, saute, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and food warmer. It also includes a sous vide setting for even cooking. Multi-cooker cooks’ food properly so that it doesn’t dry out and has better texture.

          Answer: 
          entirely depends on power consumption of your CPAP machine. The more watts it uses the shorter the battery life. For example 100 watts of use would last about an hour. Less wattage could last appreciably longer. The manual for this machine lists the approx. battery life for different wattage use.

          I am in a server room and need something to filter dust without altering my HVAC system.

          The room is in an arid climate and is also using an evaproative cooler that is meant for a room 4x its size. The server generates quite a lot of heat, and there are many fans circulating air inside and outside the server.

          Even with filters on the server enclosure, dust is still a problem and will eventually damage my system. Any help is appreciated
