    Don't lose the triggerhose eh. I bought some cheapo jobbie from a hardware store, around $85, and lost the hose/gun after the first use, a replacement part is $80, just for the f*cking hose.

    When I get voted King of Oztrailia, I'm gonna make that sorta shit punishable by death.

    I can't comment on this particular one, but a previous model was rubbish. Poor pix where a cheap Samsung had taken much better shots by comparison.

    Thanks......Aldi here sold out Saturday anyway, and Dick Smith has the equivalent Canon on special for $100 and the Samsung for a few bucks more so I'll get one of those.

    All our electronic 'kit' for bike touring runs on AA batteries, our camera's, Spot GPS, torches, toothbrushes and as a result we only need to carry one battery charger. The Canon A1400 is an excellent 16MP point and click camera for $90 (eBay price).

    Of course all powered by Aldi rechargeable batteries, the lime green 2500mAh Ultracell's are the ones to buy if you can find them...

    Nothing personal Tradey, but ...
    I run a cordless toothbrush as well but it doesn't require batteries. I like to travel light, pack small and spend little. :D

    cheers

    Not much that's bike-friendly, but might make family trips more comfy.

    They will be great for you to wear in the shower, cos we all know that you need to wear thongs in the shower when camping at caravan parks. :D
