Recently my contract was up for renewal and I went for a Galaxy S7. I also changed networks from 3 to o2 but that’s a totally different story 😉
I previously had a Note 3 and loved it, I was tempted by the S7 Edge but it was just out of my budget so vanilla S7 it was. The packaging is very svelte and compact and it is very pleasing to see a good quality set of headphones, and adaptive charger (more later) and a surprise of an OTG adapter. I turned it on and found 60% charge and then connected my old Note 3 via the OTG adapter and transferred all my stuff over. Fairly painless even though there was 11gb to transfer. I swapped the microSD card over and job was a good one.
I’m very impressed with it so far. Camera is excellent, it’s water resistant, feels very nice and solid in your hands and as a bonus it’s only a tad over an hour to charge from 11% to full. The battery easily lasts a day and I’m pleased to say it’s been a great addition. Slightly disappointed that I couldn’t have an Edge but it’s cool 😉
So all in all I’, impressed. 9 out of 10 losing one mark for how expensive it is! Gallery of images taken below with my S7!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here – I’ve been really busy and also ill. Sprained ankle and a nice swollen elbow have reduced what I’ve been able to do. What I have managed though is to get my tattoo of Taz on my shoulder covered up by the excellent Lye Tattoo Studio
Also I’ve done some work on Petra Puma. The Blue dash lights have been sorted and a few more niggling issues solved. A new to me alternator has been fitted and some new led sidelight bulbs as they were flickering. More is planned very very soon and I’m looking forward to bringing you pics of the work. I also attended a meet down in Kent which was bery good to see what and how people had modified their cars and meet some great people!
Next Puma meet is March 6th at Donington so will be good to see some people again! 😉
SO the little Puma had it’s MOT this week….after a quick check over we realised that several jobs would have to be done to get an MOT. The biggest job was rear axle bushes and having replaced them last year for the MOT I decided to replace them with Polybushes from Powerflex. They were also purple to fit in with car colour!
Once both bushes had been removed by drilling through them and then air sawing them out followed by hacksaw to get the outer shell out the new polybushes were gently hammered in and then the axle refitted
We then did a full service with oil, oil filter and spark plugs change. She runs much better now that’s for sure!
Next up was a new bottom arm on the passenger side…
Onto brakes with new discs and pads fitted on the front!
So all done and a nice new MOT with NO advisories. I’m well pleased!
Many thanks to Chris Harrison and Wade Lane Garage for the help!
Been mega mega busy last couple of months – Puma been ok, needs some work doing to it but recently the battery charging light has come on a few times. Checked battery and alternator and both are OK just!
Very busy with work recently but I did manage a hol last week in sunny Wales. Managed a ride on the WHR visited the Red Kite Centre at Bwlch Nant yr Arian and even some fast jet action at the Mach Loop
Really enjoyed the time – we were in a lodge at Belan Bach which was great and had a hot tub! Took a few photos whilst there…some are below
Picked up one of these in Blue today and I’m super pleased. Contains a 6000m/ah battery and a 1.2W solar panel plus a handy flashlight it’s also waterproof and tough. Covered in a nice non-slip covering it features a micro-usb input to accept a charging cable and 2 standard USB-A ports with 1A outputs. This is enough to charge my Galaxy Note 3 nicely, and although I guess it would be at least 12 hours to charge by sun alone a couple of hours by USB should do the job. It comes complete with a carabiner to attach it to your bag or whatever and a short USB-A to micro-USB-B lead and an Apple 30-pin adapter. Available from approx £25 in the UK I reckon they’re worth a punt!
