This is the second Qi wireless charger that I have, the first being the Anker Ultra-Slim Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad. Both wireless chargers have no problem charging my Lumia 930 and Nexus 5 with their cases on.
It is a 5-Port USB wall charger capable of outputting a maximum of 40W/8A in total. It measures 11.6cm x 6.25cm x 3cm and weighs 222g.
When I received an email from Bolse asking me to feature their products, I was pretty skeptical because I have never heard of Bolse before. So I went to do a search on them and realised that their products received pretty good ratings on Amazon and the prices are pretty reasonable. They are the direct competitors to brand like Anker.
Recently, my company bought for me an Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13″ (Late 2013) and it uses MagSafe 2 instead of MagSafe 1 power adapter because all MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina after June 2012 ships with MagSafe 2 power adapter.
I have an extra Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter at home and I needed a converter for it.

5,000 units of the Xiaomi Mi 10,400mAh Power Bank was put on sale for the first time in Singapore at 12pm on 24th April 2014. If you miss that sale, Xiaomi Singapore will be having another sale tomorrow, 6th May 2014 at 12pm!
The Xiaomi Mi 10,400mAh Power Bank retails for only S$13.99 and shipping is an additional S$5 via UPS.
Since the product is sold by Anker directly instead of Amazon, I have to pay an additional US$5.22 (S$7) for shipping to HopShopGo (freight forwarder) because it doesn’t ship directly to Singapore. In total, I paid US$31.21 (S$40) excluding shipping to Singapore.
Shipping it together with Anker Ultra-Slim Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad (more on it on the next blog post) from HopShopGo is an additional US$16.88 (S$21.30).
2 weeks ago, I was helping Li Xiang to look for eneloop rechargeable batteries for her office but to my surprise, I could not find any at all at all major electronics stores in Funan and VivoCity. I was wondering did they leave the Singapore market or their batteries sell so well that all the stores are out of stock (I was hoping the later). Many of my friends and I love eneloop batteries!
But luckily, it was just temporarily out of stock (I hope) and when I went back to Funan’s Challenger last week, there was plenty of stocks!
