“18v Cordless Drill Set”

Written on: 03/04/2015 by 92Meyer (1 review written)

I recently bought a Maplin 18v Lithium battery cordless drill. The drill itself is great(good features inc light & battery charge status led's ), but the drill bits supplied are very poor quality. One of them snapped 1st time I used it to drill a pilot hole in some timber. I asked Maplin's for a replacement drill bit, but they insisted I sent the whole drill set back & a replacement would be sent(they don't do spares). I've just gone to use the new drill to repair my shed & as I used a drill… Read Full Review

This i did to no avail. I then went back… Read Full Review

“Being a non tech person been years since I used Maplin...”

Written on: 30/08/2010

Being a non tech person been years since I used Maplin but when looking for a special battery for a CO2 detector I was referred to the Portsmouth Maplin by the local John Lewis store.

On first vist saw a young sour faced woman who was totlly unhelpful and far more interested in texting (why oh why are staff allowed mobiles on the shop floor?). During that visit saw a large number remote control what would suit my mother-in-law so reluctantly returned to purchase that later in the day when I… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2009 by HazLou (1 review written)

I was on the hunt for a number of items on www.maplin.co.uk and when I searched for them I got a list of things I had no idea were related in anyway to what I was after. If this could be remedied it might stop visitors clicking away. Vast amounts of products I've not seen since the days of Tandy and even Radio Shack appeared. My query email was answered within a matter of an hour or so hence gaining a sale else I'd have shopped elsewhere. This followed by speedy home delivery. Searches have… Read Full Review

“Useful if you are after an odd bit fast and you have a...”

Written on: 29/11/2008

Useful if you are after an odd bit fast and you have a maplins shop locally. However if you're looking to buy online or quite a bit of stuff then I think it's normally not worth it as I find them more expensive compared to most places and don't have a very good return policy.

Like most places the staff can be good or bad depending on who you get and what shop you go to. I've asked them a questions via their website (all of which I never received a reply to) but the one time I used their… Read Full Review
