Passport III – 65W Travel Adapter

I am a huge fan of Zendure Passport travel adapters, and they are a must bring for me for my overseas trips. I have the original Passport, Passport Pro, and Passport Go.

I only didn’t get the Passport II Pro as it was launched during the COVID-19 period and I am unsure when I will travel again.

Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera Review

There are four main lines of security cameras from Arlo. Arlo Ulta, Arlo Pro, Arlo Essential, and Arlo Go. Arlo Ulta supports 4K HDR video recording, while Arlo Pro supports 2K HDR video recording. Arlo Essential supports 1080p video recording, while Arlo Go supports 720p recording as it is meant to be used with a 4G plan.

Only Arlo Essential has two cameras in the line, Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera and Arlo Essential Indoor Camera. Both of which I have reviewed.

Roborock Q7 Max Review

Roborock Q7 Max is the first Roborock robot vacuum cleaner in the new Roborock Q series. The Roborock Q series is a mid-range robot vacuum cleaner series between the Roborock S series and the Roborock E series. If you have owned the Roborock S5 Max, you will be happy to know that the Roborock Q7 Max is the successor to the Roborock S5 Max.

Roborock Q7 Max retails for S$699 on Lazada. In some countries, the Roborock Q7 Max is also known as the Roborock T7 Max. So essentially Roborock Q7 max and Roborock T7 Max are the same.

Ugreen USB-C to 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

After my company changed my MacBook Pro to the new 16″ M1 Pro MacBook Pro, I can no longer use my Razer Core X Chroma since Apple M1 chips don’t support eGPU. Besides using my Razer Core X Chroma as my eGPU, I also use it as a 4-port USB-A Hub.

So I needed a 4-port USB-C to USB-A Hub. My usual first place to search is Ugreen shop on Lazada. I use their cables, chargers, and USB-C hubs, and their peripherals haven’t disappointed me yet.

Plugable DisplayLink 4K DisplayPort and HDMI Dual Monitor Adapter

There are two variants of the Plugable DisplayLink 4K DisplayPort and HDMI Dual Monitor Adapter. One with 1Gbps Ethernet Port (USBC-6950UE) and one without (USBC-6950U).

My guess is the one without an Ethernet port should be cheaper, but sadly I can’t find it on Amazon.sg. I only found the one with an Ethernet port on Amazon.sg retailing for S$139. After a 5% discount voucher, I got it for S$132.05.

ErgoTune Supreme V3 (2022) is in its third iteration and hence the official name is called ErgoTune Supreme V3. The first one being the ErgoTune (2019) and the second one being the ErgoTune Supreme V2 (2020).

Installation
Because the ErgoTune Supreme has been in the market for more than a year, the assembler has gotten very experienced in setting up the chair. My ErgoTune Supreme V2 (2020) took two guys 20 minutes to assemble the chair as I am the fourth one in Singapore to have it.

Xiaomi Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor 1S

A screw punctured my tire last week, and because I did not drive the car for a few days, the tire pressure dropped to 90 kPa.

Since the car tire pressure sensor only kicks in after a while, we realized this after driving out onto the main road. Luckily, our tires are run-flat, so it is relatively safe to drive to the nearest petrol station and fill it back up to 220 kPa.
