Piece Of Crap

As a compliment to the 'products I wholeheartedly endorse' thread, I thought I'd start this one on products you bought which turned out to be a piece of crap.

Last year I bought a portable solar charger for hiking and charging my phone along the way, which cost about 15 quid. It seemed to be solidly built, with two USB ports. I charged it up on the mains power which worked fine. Then it wouldn't turn off. Then it wouldn't turn on. Then the built in flash light kept flashing. It had a button on the side you had to press a certain number of times to cycle through the different functions. I lost count of how many times I clicked that button, clickety click clickety click. It has been gathering dust in my draw ever since. A piece of crap.
