Liberty+ was born out of a Kickstarter project where it raised a total of US$2,804,475 from 25,412 backers. Their initial goal was only US$50,000.
The original retail price was US$25.99 (S$35), but they have an exclusive discount with Kinja Deals using the coupon code KINJA593. That coupon code gives you US$6.50 discount, making the final price to be US$19.49.
It does ship directly to Singapore for US$4.49 (S$6).
Its usual retail price is US$26.99 (S$38) but because of an ongoing promotion, you can use the promo code, GEYC7LFE, and it will give you a discount of US$6.50.
I was looking for a USB-C Ethernet adapter and came across the Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter which retails for S$49 in Apple Stores and Anker USB-C Aluminum Portable Gigabit Ethernet Port Network Adapter which retails for US$22.99 (S$32) on Amazon.
I find that the Belkin Ethernet adapter is overpriced and if you want to get the Anker Ethernet adapter, you might as well top up a little more to get the Anker USB-C to 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Ethernet Adapter.
If you are looking to use a USB-C to USB-Cable to charge your USB-C MacBook Pro, your USB-C power adapter and USB-C cable need to support USB Power Delivery.
The Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB-C Cable is retailing for US$15.99 (S$23) and is available in 3ft (0.9m).
It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, and hence I have to ship it to my freight forwarder, HopShopGo, and get them to shop to Singapore for me.
Since the product is sold by Anker directly instead of Amazon, I have to pay an additional US$5.22 (S$7) for shipping to HopShopGo (freight forwarder) because it doesn’t ship directly to Singapore. In total, I paid US$31.21 (S$40) excluding shipping to Singapore.
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).
