    Can be any USB lead as there are 4 conductors, two for power and two for data. Just strip the cable and use the two power cables and plug it into a USB charger via the USB plug

    I’ll ask for a refund and see if they want it back, if not I will do what Bart said. Not much good reporting them as they never have a storefront and use garden sheds, under houses and rely on the internet. As for reporting them to eBay they would have many user names.

    Bros replied to a thread Risks of using plug packs in Electrical
    Years ago when I used to do a lot of travelling I used to take video and process them and put them on a DVD and hard drive. The hard drive was loose as it was in one of my previous computers. I decided to copy them and back them to an SSD drive. The hard drive had its own power supply via an adaptor. I had a hard drive, a portable CD drive and an SSD backup drive pugged into the hub so I could copy and transfer all these video's and my desktop and I suspect my laptop wouldn't have the...

    Ok well I have given you some other option and you can do the same with round tube is you don't get a round sleeve. As for a cap you could just put it below ground lever the thickness of a bit of ply and use it as a cap which will be flush with the ground but you will have to mark where it is as in time grass will grow over it and in 12 mths time you won't be able to find it.

    There you go SAA approved (I don't think) I have given the seller an earful so see if he comes back to me.

    I thought you were using square tube for the sleeve?

    Why a sleeve? I cut a hole in my shed floor and I wrapped a piece of RHS I was using with tape and greased it and poured the concrete around it as a base for winching my caravan up our driveway then when the concrete set puled it out, worked well.

    Yesterday morning I found one of my RCBOís tripped. I was puzzled as to why but I didnít know. My wife said she heard a bang during the night but I thought nothing of it. In the afternoon I went to my computer and this is what I found. The bang she heard was the case blowing apart. The pack was a power supply to a cheap eBay powered USB hub. I knew the risk as I have a similar type of pack to charge a torch battery and I never leave it plugged but with this I forgot. It would only...

    This is predominately an Australian forum and we operate on different voltages, frequency and rules to US so it would be highly unlikely you would get that information on this forum.

    Bros replied to a thread No water to Sprinkler valves in Plumbing
    Looks like it will be a complete rebuild. I installed mine 25yrs ago and it was similar. I got about 15 yrs out of the thin walled PVC before it got holes in it and the fittings coming apart as well I had my valve manifold like that and the valves went out of production and I wanted to change one and it was impossible so I rebuilt the system using PVC pipe and the valve manifold was rebuilt so the solenoids and be removed easily.

    I bet the cutoff pipe was the sprinkler isolator. I suspect that when it was sold it was found to not have a backflow preventer and rather then go to the effort of fitting one they just isolated the sprinklers.
