Sony NEX-3N

Bought the Sony NEX-3N from Amazon when they have a lightning deal on the 13th January 2014 and hence it cost only US$289.99 (S$370)!

HopShopGo received the package on the 18th January 2014 with a chargeable weight of 3KG, but HopShopGo offers a repack option for a slight fee and hence it cuts down the chargeable weight to just 1KG! So shipping just cost me US$20.32 (S$26). I am a HopShopGo Prime Member, so your discount may varies!

Bought the Fitbit Aria from Amazon during it’s Black Friday week lightning deals. I got it for US$93.99 (S$118) including shipping because the order is qualified for AmazonGlobal Saver.

In Singapore, the Fitbit Aria is retailing for S$169 on Apple Online Store, so you saved S$51 but you have to forgo the 1 year warranty.

Nexus 7 (2013)

Bought the 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) from Amazon for only US$199 during the Black Friday deals week! The 32GB was also on discount, going for US$239!

The item is eligible for FREE AmazonGlobal Saver which means it ships for free to Singapore! So you just have to pay US$199 which is about S$250. Do note that Asus Singapore is selling the exact same Nexus 7 (2013) in Singapore for S$379. The only difference is that it comes with 1 year warranty. For S$130 cheaper, I can forgo the warranty!

Case-Mate’s Waddler Penguin Case For iPhone 5/5s

Bought the Case-Mate Waddler Penguin Case for iPhone 5/5 for Li Xiang from Amazon for US$15 + US$7 (shipping) = US$22 (S$28). It is the same case I bought for her when she had an iPhone 4S.

After 2 years, her iPhone 4S started to hang and crash frequently and she bought a iPhone 5s 32GB (gold) and I think it would be good to get back the same case for her if Case-Mate produce the same case for iPhone 5/5s which they did!

Google Chromecast

Bought the Google Chromecast from Amazon for US$35 (S$44) excluding shipping. Google Chromecast is similar to Apple’s AirPlay technology using Apple TV.

If you are in the US, you can watch Netflix, Hulu Plus as well as movies, TV shows, and music from Google Play. However for normal users in Singapore, there is nothing much you can do with it beside streaming YouTube videos and mirroring your Chrome tabs.

Anker Uspeed USB 3.0 9-Port Hub + 5V 2.1A Charging Port With 12V 5A Power Adapter

Got the Anker Uspeed USB 3.0 9-Port Hub + 5V 2.1A Charging Port with 12V 5A Power Adapter from Amazon for US$59.99 (S$75) excluding shipping.

Ignore the long product name, it is basically a 9-port USB 3.0 powered hub with an additional USB charging port. Technically you can use all the 9 ports for charging as well but they might not be enough current because each of the 9 port can output a maximum of 900mA. From the USB 3.0 specifications, 900mA is the maximum amount of current that can be output from a USB 3.0 port.
