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.

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable

Bought the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable when I was in UK for holiday. It cost £25 (S$53) excluding tax refund. I can’t really remember how much the tax refund was, but it is probably the same price in Singapore after deducting the tax refund.

The cable is available in two length, 1m and 2m. The 1m Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable is retailing for S$48 while the 2m Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable is retailing for S$58.
