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).

Bolse 40W (5V/8A) 5-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger

The second product I gotten from Bolse is the Bolse 40W (5V/8A) 5-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger, which is retailing for USD$22.99 (SGD$29) on Amazon.

It is a 5-Port USB wall charger capable of outputting a maximum of 40W/8A in total. It measures 11.6cm x 6.25cm x 3cm and weighs 222g.

This product is totally different from the previously featured Bolse 25W (5V/5A) 4-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger despite bearing almost the same name. It doesn’t have SmartIC technology and hence the maximum output for each port is fixed.

There are three USB ports located in front and each port will output a maximum of 2A each. Note that two ports are labelled as iPad and one port is labelled as Samsung. Surprisingly, the Samsung labelled port refuses to charge my iPad but it charges my iPhone 5s and Nexus 5 just fine.

The other two USB ports are located at the side (one on each side) and each port is labelled as Universal and will output a maximum of 1A each.

I am not really a fan of this charger because of the fix maximum output for each port and the weirdness of the Samsung labelled port, I would recommend the Bolse 60W (5V/12A) 7-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger instead as it comes with SmartIC technology and is capable of a max output of 60W/12A!

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod

· · · Camera

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod is a versatile tripod that allows you to hang, grip, hold and stand on almost any surface. The tripod is coated with a layer of advanced soft touch rubber coating that makes it waterproof and durable.

I like the grip and friction of the rubber coating, it makes the tripod more stable when gripping on a rounded surface like a pole.

The product is designed and made in the UK and is retailing for €21.99 (SGD$36) and shipping is additional €6.99 (SGD$12) for standard shipping. There are two colours available, black and white.

They also have mounts for phones and tablets called Spiderpodium and Spiderpodium Tablet respectively.

For Spiderpodium and Spiderpodium Tablet, MobyShop is selling it. The Spiderpodium is selling for SGD$29 and the Spiderpodium Tablet is selling for SGD$47.80.
