This review is part of the 1 Pound Challenge - can you find a decent gadget in a pound shop?
The Signalex Game Card Card Plus+, although not stating so, if for the storage of Nintendo DS games (it does show an image of a DS on the packaging, though). The “Plus+” bit, however, is because it can also be used to store SD cards as well (if you have a DSi then these are used for storage).
The case itself is made of cheap looking black plastic – most of it is matte, with the exception of panels on the outside which are glossy – I would have preferred the whole item to have been matte. There is a lid of each side, with storing 3 game cartridges behind it (so 6 in total).
With the case you get a soft rubber insert that converts one of the compartments from DS cartridge storage to SD card – this works really well.
In one corner of the case is a loop of plastic, allowing the case to be secured – say, to a wrist cord. Size wise it’s 108 x 46 x 14 mm, so quite compact.
It’s available to buy from Poundland.
Summary of Signalex Game Card Case Plus+Compact, holds DS cartridges and/or SD cards neatly and just one pound. A bargain.
