Just Mobile Xtand Go

Being a gadget enthusiast, I don’t have a car windscreen mount for my phone. When driving, I always place my phone on the cover of my car’s cup holder. So when I need to check Google Maps when driving, I have to glance down for a few milliseconds and look back up again which is kinda challenging.

So I decided to get a windscreen mount for my phone. I saw the Just Mobile Xtand Go at Bangkok Central Embassy‘s iStudio and it looks pretty ok so I bought it for THB฿1090 (SGD$42).

There are 2 ways to mount the Xtand Go, the first is on your windscreen and the second is at the top of your dashboard using the “Go Buttons”. For most people, the first option is the easiest. For the second option, it really depends on the design of your car dashboard. For my car, Volkswagon Jetta 1.4 TSI (2010), it doesn’t work quite well due to the curvature of the dashboard.

Magnetic Organization System (MOS)

· · · Cable

Magnetic Organization System (MOS) was born out of a Kickstarter project 2 years ago. It raised a total of USD$29,376 while the initial goal is only USD$6,850 goal.

MOS “Magnetic Organization System” is a unique and elegant solution for organising and keeping track of your cables. Simply set the end of your cable on the MOS when it’s not in use and the MOS will magnetically hold it in place until you’re ready to put it to use again.

MOS is ideal for organising the cables on your desk or on the wall above your phone charger and countless other places. When placed on a desk, the MOS makes use of its micro-suction padding to affix itself to your desk without use of tape or glue and it leaves no residue if you decide to move it. When used on the wall, the MOS uses the included mounting circle to firmly and securely mount the MOS to the wall.

MOS includes multiple magnets that are designed to have the ideal pull force to hold your cables in place. Most cables are able to be securely held to the MOS without issue. Not all cables are created equally, however, and some do not respond to the magnetic field surrounding the MOS. For these cases, each MOS includes 3 magnetic cable ties that can be simple wrapped around these more troublesome cables adding the ability to be held to the MOS.

There are three colours available, black with plastic finish, white with plastic finish and hard anodised aluminium. I bought the hard anodised aluminium MOS in Bangkok at Central World‘s iStudio for THB฿1990 (SGD$77).

I did not see this selling in Singapore. If you do come across, do let me know in the comments and I will update this post.

Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable (2)

· · · Cable

In my previous post about Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable, I mentioned that it is not available in stores because it is exclusively available at Apple Online Store (Singapore). I was somewhat wrong, apparently you can get a similar Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable in stores.

However, instead of the four colours which is sold online, there are only two colours in stores which is black and white. I saw it in Funan’s Challenger and is retailing for SGD$22. You will need to take note of the length of the cable indicated on the box because there are a few lengths available. Apparently, the 6″ (15cm) is the hardest to find. I only saw one box left in that store while other lengths have a few boxes left.

I did not get mine in Singapore, instead I got it from Bangkok from a shop in Siam Center called Loft. It is retailing for THB฿690 (SGD$27), which is more expensive than Singapore even after the 7% VAT refund.

Just Mobile AluCable Mini

· · · Cable

Just Mobile AluCable Mini is a short (4″/10cm) USB to Lightning cable that is finished in aluminium. I always wanted to get it and it is on my Amazon’s wishlist for a good period of time. However the shipping cost is just not worth it (doesn’t qualify for free shipping to Singapore).

The AluCable Mini is 5cm shorter than the Belkin 6″/15cm Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable and that makes it the shortest good quality Lightning to USB cable that I owned after Kero – Lightning Nomad Cable.

In Singapore, I could not find any shops that are selling the Just Mobile AluCable Mini. So when I first saw the Just Mobile AluCable Mini selling in Siam Paragon Department Store’s Be Trend section (Level 3), I bought it immediately. I paid THB฿790 (SGD$31) for it.

Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector (2014)

· · · Cable, Innergie

When I first bought the Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector in October last year, my main complain with the cable is that the base of the Lightning head is too wide and it will not fit some cases like the Apple iPhone 5s Case or the Power Support – Air Jacket Set for iPhone 5/5s.

Apparently, Innergie refreshed the cable quietly and this time round, the base of the Lightning head is much slimmer and there is a slight allowance right below the lightning connector to allow it to fit most if not all iPhone 5/5s cases.

I could not find the new MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector on Innergie’s website. Even Innergie’s own online store is still selling the older Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector. However, they do sell the new lightning connector separately and it is called, MagiTip – Micro USB to Lightning Connector. The MagiTip is retailing for USD$17.99 (SGD$23).

I think I saw the Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector (2014) selling at Funan’s Digital Style (#03-01/01A/41) but I am not sure of the price. I also saw it selling at Plaza Singapura’s Challenger for SGD$39.

I got mine in Bangkok from Siam Paragon‘s iStudio for THB฿890 (SGD$34).
