I decided since that my other selfie stick broke, that I would buy another one from SilverCrest. Lidl’s website appears to not work for anybody living in Europe, and the store doesn’t even exist outside of Europe. The stick is very well built, with a primarily aluminium construction. With the stick, you also get an included power bank.
At only 2600mAh, you aren’t going to get a full charge out of most phones, but in my testing I managed to get around 1.2 charges on my iPhone 6s (1715mAh), which is still good, considering that the power bank attaches to the stick, by a simple twist. The powerbank is also where you control how the picture is taken, with a camera button, and 4 LED indicators to show how much battery is left. The fact that i was getting this for £10 blows my mind. The stick is nice and light, that is if your phone isn’t heavy.
The stick can be adjusted, but not as long as I would have liked. You can lock whatever length you want by simply twisting the aluminium pole clockwise, meaning that you won’t have any problems with the stick changing lengths. You can fit any phone that isn’t above 6.0″, but if you have a really big case, then you’re phone may not fit. The fittings of this stick was where I had my main gripes. It is really hard to fit even an iPhone 6 in there, which is a shame as most phones nowadays exceed 5.0″, making it for the average customer quite hard to install their phone on.

This Bluetooth selfie stick really does give so much for the price of just £10. It’s a real shame that you can’t buy this online, and that you can only get this specific model online. The stick is very premium, and if you can find it anywhere, then I would definitely recommend, if you love to take selfies.
