Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp (AR3000) is the second Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp that I have. The first being the Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp which I bought more than 8 years ago, and it is still working perfectly in my Computer Room. Bridgemen is still the sole distributor of Koncept products and after seeing my previous post, they have kindly sent me the Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp, together with the Koncept Desk Clamp (MT01C3), and Koncept Occupancy Sensor (P7-01OCC01A) for me to feature them.

I bought the Life Shinebot W450 from
Lazada for S$249.99. The usual retail price is S$320, but during the 8/8 sale, it dropped to S$287.99. After deducting an additional shop voucher of S$8 and a bank voucher of S$30, I ended up paying S$249.99. Shipping to Singapore is S$1.49, but I have a free shipping voucher from Lazada as well.
Life Shinebot W450 is a single-purpose mopping robot, and hence it doesn’t vacuum.

After almost three years, my
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Electric Toothbrush (HX9924/46) decided to give up of me. There is some issue with the power connection because I could not charge it or power it on.
I am sure the battery is charged as I left it on overnight, and there is an indicator that it was charging. However, when I took it out the next morning, I could not power it on.

My computer is not switched on 24/7. Last Saturday, when I turn on my
new computer, it causes my Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) to trip. This is the first time I encountered a trip in MCB. Typically, it is the Circuit Breaker inside my house that will be tripped.
Sadly, after that happened, I can no longer switch on my computer. I suspect my Power Supply Unit (PSU) is fried.

iRobot Roomba 980 comes with one spare side brush. I have to change to the spare side brush after one of the brush head of the original broke.
After changing to the spare side brush and scheduling it to clean just once, all the three brush heads broke. It is probably due to hardening of the rubber of the brush head that makes it so brittle.
