Bluelounge The Sanctuary

Bought the Bluelounge The Sanctuary [1] from EpiCentre [2] at Ion Orchard for S$189 and after a 10% member’s discount it cost S$170.10. The first time I saw the The Sanctuary was back in December 2009 when I was in Hong Kong [3] at city’super [4]. It was the Dark Wood variant.

So far I have only saw The Sanctuary selling at EpiCentre at Ion Orchard, I have not seen other shops carrying it yet. I think there is at least 5 of them there when I got it last week. They only carry the Black variant.

The Sanctuary is an upgrade to Bluelounge Refresh [5]. It is bigger and allows you to charge almost all types of mobile devices. I love it’s bigger surface area when compared to the Refresh as it allows me to place other things on it as well such as keys and wallet. I like how the inner tray comes with 2 surfaces, Faux Leather and Velvet. You can just flip over to either one to your liking.

However, I do have 2 complains on The Sanctuary, firstly there is only 1 USB port instead of 2 in the Refresh and hence you can only have 1 extra custom USB cable. Secondly, they should have 2 MicroUSB charging connectors instead of just 1 as these days most mobile phones are charged using MicroUSB port. On the other hand, the Refresh is meant more for Apple users as it includes 2 iPod connectors.
