Apple Lightning to Micro USB Adapter

Bought the Apple Lightning to Micro USB Adapter from Apple Online Store (Singapore) for S$28. Initially it was only available in Europe as in Europe if you are selling mobile phones, it has to come with Micro USB connectivity. But last Saturday, in a surprise move by Apple, they decided to make it available for all.

Previously, the Apple 30-pin Connector to Micro USB Adapter is only available in Europe and still is.

Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter

Bought the Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter from Apple Online Store (Singapore) for S$42. Bought it on Monday, 8th October 2012 and got it within the same week on Friday, 12th October 2012.

I don’t think it is out in retail stores yet, probably in a week or two, but I expect it to be out of stock the moment it is available in stores, like what happen to the Apple Lightning to USB Cable.

Apple Lightning to USB Cable (1m)

Bought the Apple Lightning to USB Cable from Funan’s Multimedia Integrated for S$28. They still have stocks the last I checked.

It is difficult to get the cable during this period as it is out of stock almost everywhere as everyone is rushing to get a spare cable for their car or office, and Apple Online Store lead time is 2-3 weeks!

Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

Ordered the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter for S$38 on the day it was announced at WWDC 2012 and it was delivered to me the following day!

Looks like they already have ready stock in Singapore. I went to Funan’s Multimedia Integrated and could not find it, apparently they have not distributed it to the resellers yet. I really wish Apple would open a store here in Singapore, like what they did in Hong Kong.

Recoil Winders

Recoil Winders was the 7th Kickstarter project that I backed. I backed it this year on the 6th February 2012 and the project got funded on the 26th February 2012. They raised a total of US$141,465 out of the initial goal of just US$10,000. After 3 months in the works, I finally received it 2 days ago on Monday, 4th June 2012.

I pledged US$55 for 2 complete sets of Recoil Winders and 2 Racks (2 Small, 2 Medium and 2 Large Winders) and for international shipping it is an additional US$9. Paid a total of US$64 (S$82.31).

Apple USB Ethernet Adapter

Got the Apple USB Ethernet Adapter for S$35.51 (normal price is S$38) from iStudio located in Changi Airport Terminal 3 while I went to Malaysia for my birthday celebration.

As you are aware by now the MacBook Air does not come with an ethernet port because of its slim design, so if you need to use a LAN cable for MacBook Air, this adapter is your best and only bet. Call me old fashion but I still prefer to transfer files over LAN as it is the speed is much faster and more stable.

Innergie Magic Cable – 3-in-1 Retractable USB Cable

When I first saw the Innergie Magic Cable – 3-in-1 Retractable USB Cable (Amazon.com link), it was at Challenger in VivoCity last year, but when I wanted to get it, it was out of stock and hence I settled for the 3-in-1 Retractable Charging Cable from Deal Extreme.

During my vacation in Thailand, I spotted it again in Power Buy, a shop located in CentralPlaza Bangna shopping center. It cost TH฿390 (S$16) and of course, it goes without saying, I bought it. In fact, it is the only thing that I bought in Thailand during my 4 days vacation over there.

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.
