I have an extra Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter at home and I needed a converter for it.

I decided to give Qi Wireless Charging a try and hence I bought the Anker Ultra-Slim Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad from Amazon for US$25.99 (S$33).

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.

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!
