Tried the Papakura one which is now closed weekends, guess it's not worth paying staff to work weekends and sell low value items...

richms: I've been to several ds and no luck. If someone sees any can they please pick up 3 or 4 and I'll sort you out money plus courier etc.

Henderson is a write-off except for tablet cases HDMI and junk earbuds basically. Few travel adapters. Many people and it smells like someones taken a leak in there.


 


there where heaps at Sylvia yesterday, I'm not out that way today so I can't help you out.   



Where were they in the shop?

I was there yesterday too and they've moved everything around so I'm guessing they are actually moving stuff this week. Was pretty packed too.

Looks like pakuranga is gone. No one bothered to update their Google.

yeah Sylvia was packed, I was at albany, manukau yesterday as well and they were empty.  Takanini today, and they had barely anything left and was pretty empty.

 

 

 

Good time to buy DC adapters though, I have about 5 or so of those now, just in case I need one.

Riccarton is about 2/3rds empty now, has de-shelved and boxed up a load of stock in a closed off area at the back of the store.  

 

Lots of DC adapters on the racks still there - but note that they are all assbackwards with the pins rotated 180' so the body and wire are "up" instead of "down" if in a wall socket - which isn't so good if you have a switched multi-way power board because the body obscures the switch.

So it seemes when you put dick smith pakuranga into google it just shows you botany. I went there and it was baron as well. Got some replacement tips for in ear buds, some figure 8 AC cables with a NZ plug on the other end so I can swap some on stuff from china out for a nicer cable, and a wireless charging back for my note 4 since I am getting sick of the flip cover now I am using it more to take photos and I dont think I will be replacing the note 4 anytime soon.

I wonder if they will be slowly closing stores over the next week, and moving stock to the more busy stores. I can't see them selling all their shop fittings, at least not  the prices they are asking for them, so they will probably end up at going to auction houses.

Bought 2 twin packs of 5m HDMI cables at $9 each at Westgate and a 2 pack of HDMI joiners at $2.50 at Albany today. Have used them to create a 15m cable to go under the house linking the devices at the lounge tv and dining room tv. Was concerned about the the length of the cable but works a treat. Had been using 3 rca cables for composite video/audio previously. Big improvement in picture quality

For good, or just on Monday? I was there last Monday and it was shut, however, it was open the rest of the week.

 7AH, 12V batteries are cheaper than I can buy elsewhere though. The one I brought had a date of 070813 though...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just checked the voltage of the SLA battery. It's currently at 8.02Volts. From my research, this means it appears to be stuffed :-(
