Samsung A12 64gig - Takealot Special price (25% discount) is R 3198.00. Makro's normal price is R 2999.00
This is why comparison shopping, pricecheck and isthereanydeal.com is a thing.

Makro has the single sim on promo for R2999. Takealot is offering the dual sim version on promo at R 3198. Makro offers the dual sim at normal price of R3499. Takealot is a saving on the dual sim but definitely not 25% when compared to other retailers of course.

Please take care when buying power banks like this one:
1627023927009.png

There is NO WAY a 30,000mAh power bank costs that little. We are looking at 8-10x 18650 cells here, and there is no way you are paying around R35 for a battery cell of that capacity. Samsung/LG/Sanyo themselves cannot sell it at that price to their distributors, so it's impossible that you will get anywhere NEAR that rated capacity. Think about laptop battery pack replacement, we are talking above R700 because they must match their rated-power and last for around 5 years. I shudder to think what bottom-basement monstrosities are installed in those things... A good 18650 weighs in at around 46 grams.. and there is a direct correlation between weight and capacity.. Those packs should weigh around 1/2 a kg at those capacities, and they do NOT.

You do get R35 18650 cells but the amp rating is so low that it wont possibly deliver on that 30000mAh.
A good LG, Sony, Samsung 2500 to 3000mah cell is at least R100 to R150 cost.

For that price I will rather have the Russell Hobbs which is about that same price
Jissus
****ing Liars

EDIT: Wait just a minute, the Russell Hobbs is now R1799, these breadmakers have all gone through the roof in the last week. Probably due to the Durban looters, bastards !!!!
