Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad Mini
· ·

In Sydney, almost everything there is more expensive than in Singapore maybe except for coffee and this HiRise dock. I bought the Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad Mini from Apple Store Sydney for AU$34.95 (S$41). In Apple Online Store (Singapore), the same dock is retailing for S$49.

This HiRise dock is compatible with all Apple Lighting devices maybe except for the iPad. Though I tested with an iPad Air and it fits fine, it is very flimsy and easily topple from the side of the dock.

I got the Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch (S$95) as my 30th birthday present thanks to my brother, Leroy and his fiancé, Huimin! The Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch is a new iPad Pouch under the new Crumpler Bell range which is launched in Singapore back in March 2014.

Compared to the Crumpler Bag – Milonas, the Crumpler Bell – Action iPad Pouch is heavier, has more pockets to carry your iPad accessories and more padding to protect your iPad.

The OtterBox Commuter Wallet For iPhone 5/5s is retailing for S$55 in Singapore. The case adds quite a bit of bulk to your iPhone because it gives your iPhone added protection against drops, bumps and shock. It also includes a slider compartment at the back that house up to 3 credit cards.

On the official website, it states that it can hold up to three cards and one bill, however when I tested it, it is not able to hold even a single note after placing 3 cards in (1x EZ-Link Card, 2x Credit Cards). I guess Singapore currency notes are bigger and thicker because of the materials it is printed on.

Bought the Apple iPhone 5s Case (Brown) from the Apple’s Fifth Avenue store because I have to get something from that iconic flagship store! It is just slightly cheaper than Singapore if you pay by cash. Over there, it is retailing for US$39 + US$3.46 (NYC 8.875% tax) = US$42.46 (S$54), whereas in Singapore it is retailing for S$58.

I got the brown to match my Apple iPad Air Smart Case (Brown)!

The Apple iPad Air Smart Case retails in Singapore for S$118 and there are 6 colors to choose from (Brown, Beige, Black, Yellow, Blue & Red). It is made up of aniline-dyed leather. Since I am using the silver iPad Air, I chose the color Brown! I think Brown or Red will go well with the Silver iPad Air.

The smart case is very well build since it comes from Apple and hence all the holes are aligned perfectly well with the iPad Air. It does add a little bit of bulk and weight to the iPad Air but is still acceptable for me.
