Electronic mosquito Trap

This is an advanced version of the earlier mosquito bat.
The charger cum torch (of led type) assembly is coupled to bat unit using a threaded plastic couple.
The charging and the using the unit as torch can be done after decoupling the units.
Thus no question of falling during charging.
Costs Rs. 170 in Mumbai.
The torch gives sufficient light.Worth for a try.

automatic washing machine

whirlpool 700s... the automatic washing machine.

i bought this machine a few months back for rs 17,000
and installed in my home in kerala. last week it failed.
water not filling. we called the service people. they came
after 3 solid days.

the diagnosis: wrong usage.
not using stabiliser.
not using the special powder.
the solution : buy both from the service firm at a cost of
rupees two thousand plus.
i said no and they said dire consequences ( to the machine ,
luckily not me)

i said repair the fault or allow me to complain.
they grumbled and did something. the machine is working
for the last 3 days. no idea what is in store as i declined their
persistent offer of the stabiliser and the powder.

i chose whirlpool among at least five competing brands for
its international reputation. but i did not realilse that local
set up is the most important factor.
