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.
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.
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.
If you are an ANZ Credit Card holder, you are also entitled a 10% off any 3rd party accessories from EpiCenter as well, so the Capdase Car Charger Holder cost only S$53.90 after a 10% discount and using the S$50 voucher, I paid S$3.90 for the holder.
My cable Internet contract is expiring and I will be switching over to Fibre Internet before 24th August 2011. As I do not have a Fibre Termination Point (TP) in my room, I can’t place the gateway in my room and hence I have to move it to the living room where the TP is located. In order to facilitate the move to Fibre Internet, I got the Belkin Home Series 4-Socket Surge Protector for S$25 from the PC Show 2011.
I am a strong believer of surge protection after my previous cable modem got fried. All my 24/7 switched-on devices like my modem, switches, router and NAS goes though Belkin Surge Protector. Since there are only 4 sockets (which is just nice for me) to fit 1x Switch, 1x Router, 1x Home Gateway and 1x NAS.
