“OK headphones”

Written on: 02/05/2015 by JS1215 (1 review written)

Bought these headphones via Wowcher for £9.99 + P&P. For that price, they're actually not bad at all. I got them via Wowcher, and delivery was quick. The sound quality is OK (the Apple earphones are better), but luckily I'm not a sound snob - I just wanted a pair of bluetooth headphones that would allow me to listen to music while running or doing household chores, without tying me up in cable and without bothering anyone else. These are also not as comfortable as the Apple earphones -… Read Full Review

“CHIMP "Go Bluetooth Headphones" Poor Product & Company!”

Written on: 02/05/2015 by Logank153 (1 review written)

1. The headphones are not easy to pair and the instructions do not make any sense. The instructions mention a bluetooth button repeatedly - but there is not an obvious one on the actual device? It certainly is not listed on the diagram which only shows play, rewind and forward symbols. It refers to a blue light "flashing blue" WHAT flashes blue? I cannot find a blue light? There is a red light when charging - but this is marked by an on / off button it is not obvious if this is where the blue… Read Full Review

“Slow, Slow, Slow ”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by EmilieS47 (1 review written)

I bought some water speakers through Wowcher - I specified a colour that I needed only to find the wrong colour when I opened the box. I have called the number that Wowcher provided and also the number on their website - neither of the calls were answered... Ive also emailed and still not had a response. This is a gift that I needed to give and I now cant! Very disappointed as I have never had a bad experience with Wowcher until I got to this moment. Would really appreciate a response or at… Read Full Review

“Rubblish Company”

Written on: 26/04/2015 by Kiddzg406 (1 review written)

Used a woucher voucher for a £50 tablet. Tablet did not work so sent it back. Was sent a sticky note with no contact details that the explanation that the 'pin had been pushed in and therefore it was accidental damage'. I phoned and spoke to a manager and explained that I had not used the table at all. He asked me to resend back the tablet. I resent back the tablet and heard nothing. So I called, only to be told this time that they had not received it. I was told to give them the name of the… Read Full Review

Hi. I am sorry to hear of the frustration you have had with your tablet. Of the thousands of items we send out monthly a handful can unfortunately have problems.

“Slow Slow ... Slow”

Written on: 22/04/2015

I have had my Chimp tablet since Xmas and every app I have downloaded freezes ... I cannot play any games on it except boring Solitaire! I have now reluctantly had to just use it as a Kindle reading device, which still runs slow! :( Is this a fault of the tablet in general or just mine! As I was thinking of buying one for my grandson but if this is the case I don't think I would bother :( A real shame in general… Read Full Review

“9 inch tablet”

Written on: 03/04/2015 by paulbinns (1 review written)

I recently bought a tablet from you in a Wowcher promotion . I have the product 24hrs. . Charged the tablet up for the initial charge and tablet worked well. I added some apps on 2nd day and was using the tablet when the screen locked. The screen has flashing lines on it and will allow me to do nothing. I cannot escape I cannot switch the tablet on and off. As I have had the tablet such a short period of time, would it be possible to have a replacement unit sent out to me. Once I have… Read Full Review

“Poor Batter Life”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by danielpitts (1 review written)

Purchased a 7" tablet for a Christmas present, after a few setup issues and resetting the device a number of time, finally managed to get the device setup with the apps and correct child friendly setting. Tablet had been working fine, apps working correctly, good speed even when streaming video. Unfortunately the battery life has dramatically reduced and only lasts for approximately 30-40mins, which is very frustrating. The charging time has also increased without any effect on the battery… Read Full Review

Well sent an email to support via chimp electronics website and no reply as yet. Obviously not interested in resolving this issue. I had hoped that placing a relatively good review about the product supplied would have prompted a reply from chimp electronics. Just playing the waiting game now!

“Good value for Money, Great Service”

Written on: 05/03/2015 by ybLockhart345 (1 review written)

I ordered a Chimp Tab With a keyboard/wallet/case back in december and they managed to get it to me before christmas which was absolutely fantastic. The tab in and of itself isn't a world beater but it runs android OS really smoothly and works great for its purpose; All in all it provides amazing value for money and Was an ideal gift for my 11 year old nephew. Best of all, the screen size is ideal of downloading a Gameboy emulator and introducing my nephew to the wonderful world of… Read Full Review

“Chimp Headphones Break! Do not buy!”

Written on: 21/02/2015 by miRivera134 (1 review written)

When I bought these headphones, I was over the moon with the idea of having a working pair of headphones. One of the things that didn't come with the 65 pound price tag was the fact that they break after a week! After two days the sound became fuzzy and I had to fiddle with the wire in order for it to work. Then, after five days and a half, the whole headphones stopped working. I think that this is outrageous as for 65 pounds headphones should be able to, for example, work for over a week! If… Read Full Review

“Very Poor Customer Service”

Written on: 20/02/2015

I received as a gift a seven inch Tablet that was perfect for my requirements. After approximately 3 months the device would not charge correctly. I received a replacement charger, promptly, however the same problem was encountered. CHIMP Electronics then requested a return of the Tablet and charger which I forwarded along with a returns form. Four working days later I received the same Tablet via Royal Mail with a handwritten Report on the reverse side of the Returns Form that I had… Read Full Review
