There are three models of USB Car Chargers from GP. Single USB 2.4A (S$22.90), Dual USB 4.8A (S$37.90) and Triple USB 6.3A (S$49.90). Each model comes in two colors, white and black.

I backed the Dash microSD and SD Card Reader on Kickstarter on 16th November 2015. The project was funded on 1st December 2015 after raising a total of US$11,492 out of their initial goal of US$10,000 from 717 backers.

I chose the US$22 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another US$3 (despite it stating US$2). So in total, I paid US$25 (S$36).

Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable

The Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable has been out of stock for quite some time. I managed to buy it when it just got back in stock on 9th November 2015. Because it doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, I have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The retail price is US$12.99 (S$19) excluding shipping fees from HopShopGo and comes in only one length which is 1m. It is a USB 2.0 cable and hence the data transfer speed will be capped at 480Mb/s.

Apple USB-C Charge Cable (2m)

The Apple USB Type-C Cable is retailing for S$42 and comes in only one length which is 2m. I wish they have it in 0.5m and 1m as well.

There are no markings on the USB ends on the cable because there is no need to since it has a reversible plug orientation. This is similar to the Apple Lighting cable as there is no marking on the Lightning end of that cable as well.
