I bought this for my cake decorating. It's really easy to use - I love the fact it's an all in one easy to use kit - no wires or big compressors needed - so it gives me the freedom to use it even where there are no plug points. It's really easy to charge using the USB, and it didn't take long to charge either. If you wanted to use it for painting or decorating models etc it would also be good for those hobbies. Really pleased with it!
