Bought the Innergie USB Charger – 10W Dual USB Auto Adapter from VivoCity’s Challenger for S$29 (member’s price S$26.10). It is a 2 port USB charger for cars that produces 2.1A/10W which is enough to charge the iPad. This is essentially the 2 port version of the Griffin PowerJolt Micro and it looks nicer as well.
Li Xiang and I have been taking turns to charge our iPhones in the car after being outside for the whole day travelling from places to places, with this charger, both of us can charge our iPhones at the same time!
The Sanyo Eneloop Black Charger Set BC-MQR06 is the latest product from Eneloop. Each Black Charger Set comprises of 4 AA size of eneloop XX rechargeable batteries and an eneloop Black Charger in a sleek black and silver design. It is retailing for S$65.90 at all Best Denki outlets, Meidi-Ya Supermarket, all Selffix D.I.Y store outlets, Sprint-Cass at Terminal 2 and 3, and selected outlets of Harvey Norman and Challenger.
The eneloop XX batteries have a high capacity of a 2,500mAh cell which is suitable for high power consumption gadgets like digital cameras and DSLR photoflash units. It also provides longer battery life than standard alkaline batteries and gives you up to 500 rechargeable cycles.
The Innergie USB Charger – Duo USB Charging Kit (Home) is selling at Challenger for S$50 (after 10% member’s discount is S$45). I got it from VivoCity’s Challenger.
The PlugBug charger acts as an US travel adapter for your MacBook Pro/Air MacSafe Power Adapter and on top of that it gives you an additional USB port that allows you to charge your iPhone or iPad. I find it super useful for hotels that has limited power sockets. If you prefer not to attached it to your MacSafe Power Adapter, no worries as it can be used as a standalone USB charger.
Together with the Sanyo Eneloop Glitter Batteries, they also sent me the Sanyo Eneloop Quick Charger NC-MQR06W. The package comes with 4x AA batteries and is retailing for S$55.90.
The batteries are Made in Japan while the charger itself is Made in China. It can charge up to 4x AAA or 4x AA batteries at once.
Always wanted to get the Sanyo Eneloop Glitter AA Battery because it just looks so nice!
Luckily for me, the PR agency of Sanyo Eneloop sent that to me for me to feature it on my blog after seeing I am such a Sanyo Eneloop fan as I have a featured section on Sanyo Eneloop!
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.
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).
