John Ackerman, who is the official distributor of iRobot products in Singapore has a booth at IT Show 2017. At the booth, they only accept Cash or NETS payment only. I ended up getting my Braava Jet 240 from their website as the discounted price is applicable online as well. Delivery is fixed price at S$18, or you can pick it up from their office at, Blk 34 Upper Cross Street #04-138 Singapore 050034.
I received the iRobot Roomba 980 as a house warming gift from my Cousin Joanne.
The iRobot Roomba 980 is the highest end Roomba and is retailing for S$1,498.
The Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is the successor to their popular Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. Dyson V8 is more powerful and provide better battery life.
Depending on what tools is attached to it, the usage may varies. It can go up to 40 minutes on normal power or 7 minutes on maximum power. If you are using it for vacuuming the floor, it will last about 25 minutes.
The Xiaomi USB Fan is selling for S$6.99 and is available in two colors, white and blue.
During the Lunar New Year 2016 sale which happens from 21st January 2016 to 22nd January 2016, the price of the fan became S$5.99 which is S$1 cheaper. It is not much but better than nothing.
The Oral-B Black 7000 SmartSeries Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush was having a US$30 coupon discount on Amazon during Black Friday week.
The original price is US$155.68 and after the coupon discount it is US$125.68 (S$177.16). The coupon discount is automatically applied before checkout after you click on the “Clip $30.00 Off Coupon” button. In Singapore, the same toothbrush is selling for S$329 at Robinsons and Tangs.
I bought the Nubee Temperature Gun from Amazon for US$13.59 (S$20) together with the Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure. It also doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.
The Nubee temperature gun is a non-contact digital laser infrared thermometer that lets you obtain a temperature reading of a surface such as stoves, ovens, food and fish tanks.
I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.
Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.
Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of its tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.
There are two variants for the SoundTeoh Tower Socket. One is this and the other is the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 8 Outlets And 2 USB Ports and it costs S$89.90. A good thing about the included USB ports is the combined output of 4.2A which makes it capable of outputting 2.1A per port. Personally, I find it is not worth an additional S$20 if you have a couple of multiple USB port chargers lying around like the Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger or the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger.
The Xiaomi LED Light is a good alternative to your phone’s flashlight. Just plug it into a power bank and it can double up as a torchlight. The Xiaomi LED Light is diffused so they are easy on your eyes as well.
There are four variants to the Dyson AM06 Desk Fan:
