I always wanted to get the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block but just no impulse to buy it. The Coop Idea was co-founded by two friends who grew up ​in New Zealand who currently resides in Hong Kong.

The recommended retail price (RRP) of the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block is S$99, however MobyShop is selling it for S$79.90. That is the cheapest I could find till I went to Sitex 2014 and saw it being sold at S$79 at Nubox booth.

Asked my mom to get me the Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter from iStudio in Changi Airport because she is travelling to Hong Kong with my dad. The retail price is S$108 but if you get it from the Airport, you don’t have to pay tax for it. So it is cheaper by about 7%, so it cost about S$100.93.

The Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter is meant for MacBook Pro Retina 13″. As long as your MacBook uses 60W or less, you can use this particular adapter. Case in point, you can use this power adapter with MacBook Air 11″ or MacBook Air 13″.

The Bolse 25W 5A 3-Port USB Car Charger is retailing for US$14.99 (S$19) on Amazon.

When I heard of this product, I thought there are three USB ports, but actually there are only two USB ports and one attached Micro USB cable. The description actually meant you can charge three devices at one go because it is able to output a maximum of 5A.

I won the Nokia Wireless Charging Stand (DT-910) worth S$128 from TheGeekyBeng’s Great Nokia Giveaways.

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.

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.

The first product I gotten is the Bolse 25W (5V/5A) 4-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger, which is retailing for US$18.99 (S$24) on Amazon.

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.
