I got the Belkin Auto Charger For iPod And iPhone almost 3 years ago, but unfortunately it could not charge my iPad and hence I got to get another car charger for my iPad as I will be using it as a backup GPS device for my US trip next month.

The Griffin PowerJolt Micro is capable of charging iPad, iPhone and iPod. It takes in an input of 12v DC and output 5v DC at 2.1A. In order to charge the iPad properly, you need 2.1A whereas iPhone/iPod just need 500mAh.

Mophie Juice Pack Boost

Bought the Mophie Juice Pack Boost from Apple (Singapore) Online Store for S$69.90. I can’t seem to find it in any Authorized Apple Reseller stores in Singapore. Instead they are still selling the older model, the one with 1,500mAh battery (Amazon Link) instead of this 2,000mAh one.

The Mophie Juice Pack Boost is bigger and much lighter than it looks. I was expecting it to be more compact in size and heavier, but surprising it is lighter than any of my Eneloop Chargers that I bring along in my bag whenever I am out (which is a good thing).

Bought the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit before my flight to London in iStudio located in Changi Airport Terminal 3 for S$54.21. Since I was departing to London and have a valid boarding pass, I do not need to pay the 7% GST/tax, if not the normal price is S$58.

The Kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters (for MacBook and MacBook Pro), Portable Power Adapters (for iBook and PowerBook), and AirPort Express.

Bought a packet of 3 PowerPac Plug Keys from Challenger at Funan for S$0.90 (after 20% member’s discount is S$0.72). This Plug Key will convert your 3-pin plug socket to support a 2-pin plug power cable.

Since Singapore was once part of the British, we follow the British BS 1363 standard.

Bought a pack of 2 Taiyo 3-Pin Plug Adapters from Challenger at Funan for S$14.90 (after 10% member’s discount is S$13.41). I like it because it has individual switch to control power to each of the 3 3-pin sockets.

I find it weird that some countries do not have the concept of switching off an individual switch on a power strip but rather leaving all the switches always on, if you look at Belkin Surge Protectors, there is no on/off switch available.

The package includes charging tips for iPad/iPhone/iPod, Blackberry, HTC, Motorola, LG, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Samsung Galaxy, PSP, Nintendo DSL/DSi/3DS and Female USB.

Got the Bluelounge SpaceStation from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$127.35. I have not seen the SpaceStation sold elsewhere yet, if I do come across, I will update this post accordingly.

This SpaceStation should complete my Bluelounge collection for the time being. I ordered Bluelounge MiniDock and Bluelounge Extra Connectors online and still waiting for it to arrive sometime in mid September. I have yet to order Bluelounge Kicks as I want to wait for my previous shipment to come first before deciding to order again.

Bought the Bluelounge The Sanctuary from EpiCentre 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 at city’super. 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.
