I always wanted to get the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block but just no impulse to buy it. The Coop Idea was co-founded by two friends who grew up in New Zealand who currently resides in Hong Kong.
The recommended retail price (RRP) of the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block is S$99, however MobyShop is selling it for S$79.90. That is the cheapest I could find till I went to Sitex 2014 and saw it being sold at S$79 at Nubox booth.
It is a 5-Port USB wall charger capable of outputting a maximum of 40W/8A in total. It measures 11.6cm x 6.25cm x 3cm and weighs 222g.
Shipping it together with Anker Ultra-Slim Qi-Enabled Wireless Charging Pad (more on it on the next blog post) from HopShopGo is an additional US$16.88 (S$21.30).
This Anker 5-Port Wall Charger weighs 166g and measures 98mm (Length) x 60mm (Height) x 27mm (Thickness).
I have been eying on the Griffin PowerDock 5 since it was announced back in January 2013. But unfortunately it wasn’t released till last month (July 2013).
The Griffin PowerDock 5 is retailing for US$99 (S$126) directly from Griffin’s website. I doubt it will come to Singapore anytime soon. Griffin offers free shipping within the US and they do ship to Singapore directly and for the PowerDock 5, the cheapest shipping is about US$12 (S$15.30) without tracking. But I did not choose that option, instead I shipped it to HopShopGo, which is a freight forwarder and paid US$20.08 (S$25.50) for DHL Express shipping to Singapore.
