Retweeted by Martin Beeby@xmjw @leggetter No. No. No. ;) It's not better. You don't need a timer. I've owed this, the original is far better.@leggetter tip #2... Change your batteries every time you present. Or buy energiser AAA with the power indicators.This is the clicker you need when presenting. If you own any other clicker, throw it in the bin and buy this ;) http://t.co/eMgWM64VNa
