4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger

Bought the 4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger from TrendsMobile which is located at Funan for SGD$29.90.

It has an output of 4A, but unfortunately it is shared with the 6 USB ports, I wish it says what is the maximum output per USB port. But nevertheless, I still think it is a pretty useful charger to have if you have plenty of USB devices to charge.

I am still waiting for the Griffin’s PowerDock 5 which has 5 USB ports and each port is able to produce 2.1A!

OSIM uMist

· · · Gadget

I sleep in an air-condition room almost all the time and ever since my LASIK, I am more conscious about the dryness of my eye as I don’t want my degree to regress. When I sleep, my eyelids are not fully close (I have no idea why) and I get extreme dry eyes when I wake up the next morning.

My LASIK doctor had already prescribed me with Duratears for me to apply everynight before I sleep and to wear an eye goggle.

I went the extra mile and gotten the OSIM uMist to humidify my room. OSIM is having sale now, the OSIM uMist is now selling for SGD$88 (the usual price is SGD$128). Got my set from Best Denki at VivoCity.

The reason I got the OSIM uMist is because it is slightly cheaper and OSIM is a more established brand.

Using the OSIM uMist is pretty straight forward, you only have to set the level of mist to be produced (Low, Medium or High). There is also an optional timer (2hrs, 4hrs, 6hrs or 8hrs) that you can set to automatically switch off the device when the time is up. 1 full container of water on low can last you about 24 hours while on high can last you about 14 hours.

The recommended humidity level for a room is about 50%, in an air-condition room, the humidity level will drop to about 20%.

UE BOOM

· · · Gadget

Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for SGD$299 and available in 4 colours (Blue, Red, Black and White).

My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.

The design inspiration for the UE BOOM comes from a water tumbler.

You can use 2 Logitech UE BOOM to double the volume of the sound or making them into a left and right speaker and thus producing stereo sound using the UE Boom App which is on the App Store and Google Play. The app also let you do some basic configuration to the speaker like setting the language.

There is NFC support for the UE BOOM though it is not listed in the official technical specifications. So basically if you are using an Android or Windows Phone (not tested) that has NFC, you can tap on the UE BOOM to initiate the pairing of Bluetooth and you are ready to stream your music via Bluetooth to the speaker. This is similar to how Nokia use it to pair with the Nokia Play 360 speaker.
