A door wedge always comes in handy, as it prevents your door from slamming after being nudged by a particularly strong draft at that point in time. Not only does it help you avoid unwanted shocks and frights (your cat and dog will appreciate it as well), it will also prevent ruining said door at home. Of course, there is also the risk of having your fingers or toes getting hurt in the process when you are less than careful, and with the £14.99 Ila Wedge Personal Safety Door Alarm, it not only avoid all of those nasty occasions, it will also double up as an alarm – pretty handy if you happen to live in a foreign country.
Should there be an unwanted intruder who tries to force entry, you and the hotel staff will be alerted by an ear-splitting alarm. This device will not add that much weight to your luggage, and there is no fear of accidentally triggering the device courtesy of an On/Off switch. It will run on a quartet of LR43 alkaline button cell batteries and dishes out a banshee rivaling 130dB volume level.

Are you going to turn off all your lights during Earth Hour this weekend? Will you do your part in helping keep our earth green? If so, then you might want to check out different methods of cutting down on your energy expenditure, and that might even include an overhaul of the existing consumer electronic items in your living room. Sceptre is one brand name that has long been associated with budget friendly TV sets that offer a careful balance of technology and performance without breaking the bank, and they are at it yet again with the 40 Series LCD HDTV.
Touted by Sceptre to be the “ultimate eco-friendly TV” for those who are on the lookout for outstanding image quality, long term energy savings and environmental friendliness. With the latest 40 Series LCD HDTV, it will deliver 38.5″ of viewing goodness in the form of the X409BV-FHD, where the manufacturing process followed strict guidelines that are specially aimed at maximizing materials while decreasing environmental waste. Apart from that, it also boasts of an extremely energy efficient design that is compliant with Energy Star 5.3, which ends up in significant reductions in energy consumption with an estimated yearly energy cost of only $14. I am not quite sure of the $14 figure – just how many minutes of TV do you watch on it each day then?
All right, so we have established the claimed fact that the 40 Series LCD HDTV from Sceptre will be green in nature. But apart from that, what else does it bring to the table? For starters, there is Auto Dynamic Contrast Enhancement which reveals low-light details even in dim locations, a fair number of HDMI ports to hook up to the latest entertainment devices, an LCD backlight life that has been rated at over 50,000 hours, among others. If you are interested in picking up one of these puppies, I am pleased to say that the asking price of just $399.99 goes to show Sceptre’s commitment in keeping prices low for the current cash strapped generation.
