I want to send someone in Dublin headphones

Is there an Irish electronics store that delivers?
Or should I just go to Amazon UK?

Thanks

edit: make sure to check the euro price vs sterling price. can be surprising.

I've been doing more sketches for my woodwork stuff and found a coloured conté pencil on the floor and realised that if I used more colour they might be possible to follow.

Is there a go-to work horse reasonably priced brand of pencils you'd recommend?

Not my area of expertise but conte are a decent brand. A friend who uses pencils all the time uses Stabilo. Might be worth checking out.

Okay. I always think the site doesn't look very safe for some reason.

If I buy a phone from the US that says it is GSM+CDMA / 4G LTE Compatible does that mean it'll work grand here? As far as I understand it we use GSM here.
I know I'd need an adapter to plug it in with the the standard charger but what about usb charging? Is that the same everywhere?
Thanks

I'm not very well informed about phones... buut, I brought a fairly recent LTE type iphone from the US to Ireland a short while ago, and there were no issues with it working there. Like, the carrier was different, but technically the phone seemed fine. I think if it's 4G LTE it should work? Some US vendors put software on the phone to lock it to one specific network, you'd have to nuke that if it exists.

The USB charging is definitely not a problem.

Thanks lads. I dont want that phone anymore anyway. Stupid phone manufacturers making variants of the same phone that have almost identical code-like strings of numbers and letters to distinguish them from each other. That's why it was half the normal price.
