Samsung MHL Cable

I have problems finding MHL cables in Singapore for my Galaxy Nexus. MHL stands for Mobile High-Definition Link and here is the definition from Wikipedia:

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is a proposed industry standard for a mobile audio/video interface for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics (CE) devices to high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays. The MHL standard features a single cable with a low pin-count interface able to support up to 1080p high-definition (HD) video and digital audio while simultaneously charging the connected device.

3-in-1 Retractable Charging Cable

Placed my order for the Multifunction 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Adapter – Black from Deal Extreme on the 4th February 2012 and it arrived in my mailbox on the 5th March 2012, it took exactly a month for it to reach my home. Paid US$5 for it and with Deal Extreme, shipping is always free.

This 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Cable is similar to the Innergie Magic Cable – Multi-Tip USB Cable which I bought last month but it cost 50% lesser and it has support for Apple’s 30-pin connector.

Mohzy Loop Micro USB & iPhone Cable

Li Xiang got me the Mohzy’s Loop Micro USB & Apple iPhone/iPod Cable from Taiwan. I did not see it selling in Singapore. She got it for NT$390 (S$16.67) from Studio A which is a Apple Reseller in Taiwan.

It is essentially a Micro USB cable that have magnets on both end of the tip that attracts to each other to form a loop shape. You can wear it on your wrist or loop it around your bag’s strap. You can even place it on your computer tower or even on your fridge holding up name cards or to-do lists. I would consider the magnet within the cable to be slightly stronger than your average fridge magnets.

Innergie Magic Cable Trio – Charge & Sync 3-in-1 USB Cable

The Innergie Magic Cable Trio – Charge & Sync 3-in-1 USB Cable and Innergie Magic Cable Duo – Charge & Sync 2-in-1 USB Cable are the most expensive USB cables from Innergie. Each retailing for S$29 at Challenger but there is a 10% discount for members, so it adds up to S$26.10 each.

I got the Innergie Magic Cable Trio instead since it has 3 tips (Mini USB, Micro USB & Apple 30-pin connector) whereas the Innergie Magic Cable Duo has only 2 tips (Micro USB & Apple 30-pin connector).

Innergie Magic Cable – Multi-Tip USB Cable

Bought the Innergie Magic Cable – Multi-Tip USB Cable from Plaza Singapura’s Challenger for S$13 (after 10% member’s discount is S$11.70). I always wanted to try out Innergie’s product, because it is always very well designed though it is on the pricey side.

In case you are wondering, Innergie is popular for universal adapters for laptops.

Apple iPhone Micro USB Adapter

The Apple iPhone Micro USB Adapter is currently only being sold in the UK Apple Stores (both online and retail) for £8.00 (S$16.23).

I bought it from the Apple Store at Regent Street when I was there in London for Nokia World 2011. I think it is a good gift to give to people who are Apple fans because you can’t get it anywhere else in the world!

Bluelounge Extra Connectors

I got the Bluelounge Extra Connectors (Micro USB) for US$5.95 (~S$7.22) for my Bluelounge The Sanctuary as I needed an extra Micro USB port to charge both my HTC Destire and HTZ Mozart at the same time.

If you just ship the Extra Connectors to Singapore, it cost US$2.53 (~S$3.07) for USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). Since I am already buying the Bluelounge MiniDock, I just need to top up US$1 more for the shipping cost.

Bluelounge Notebook Kit

The Bluelounge Notebook Kit can be bought from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$31.05.

I also saw the Notebook Kit being sold at EpiCentre at Ion Orchard for S$39 (after 10% member’s discount is S$35.10) which is slightly more expensive than Design Museum Shop. Challenger at IMM on the other hand is selling for S$29 (after 10% member’s discount is S$26.10) which is the cheapest among the three shops.
