Went to Hong Kong over the weekend to attend a relative wedding and since I have nothing much to buy for that trip, I decided to get the Mophie Powerstation Plus (12,000mAh) from the newly opened Apple Store at 100 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
I received the Mophie Power Reserve as a door gift at the official launch of Mophie in Singapore. It is retailing for S$69 in Singapore and you can get it from the Apple Online Store (Singapore). Last I heard, this product is going to be discontinued, so get it while you can.
Mophie Power Reserve is a 1,350mAh power bank that weighs 55g and measures 72 x 38 x 14 (L x W x H) (mm). It comes in four colors: black, white, gold and red.
It was put on sale for the first time in Singapore at 12pm on 13th February 2015. The sale is meant to coincide with Lunar New Year and hence it is an open sale instead of the usual limited flash sales. Open sale means you get to purchase Mi products anytime.
Mophie Powerstation Plus is a series of power banks from Mophie that has an integrated Lightning cable to charge your iPhone and integrated USB cable to charge the power bank itself. There is also a integrated Micro USB cable version available if you are using Android or Windows Phone devices. With integrated cable, you do not need to bring any additional cables along with your power bank.
There are four capacities in the series: 3,000mAh, 5,000mAh, 7,000mAh and 12,000mAh. The 7,000mAh and 12,000mAh are coming soon.
Xiaomi Mi 16,000mAh Power Bank is the third and largest capacity power bank from Xiaomi. It was put on sale for the first time in Singapore at 12pm on 16th December 2014 and is retailing for S$29.99.
For the first time, there are two output ports in Xiaomi’s power bank. Each of the port supports up to 2.1A output but if both ports are used simultaneously, the maximum combined output is 3.6A.
Not many people heard of the brand TYLT before and that includes me. But I recognised the bold colors used in their nicely designed product packaging and only then I realised, the brand name is TYLT.
I still could not figured out what TYLT stands for and it is not written in their about page.
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.
The newly launched Sony CP-B20 USB Portable Charger is a 20,000mAh power bank that comes with four USB ports and that allows you to charge four devices at a time!
It is capable of outputting 6.9A in total and that means you can charge three iPads or four mobile phones at one go!
5,000 units of the Xiaomi Mi 5,200mAh Power Bank was put on sale for the first time in Singapore at 12pm on 22nd July 2014 (2 weeks ago). If you miss that sale, Xiaomi Singapore will be having another sale tomorrow, Tuesday, 5th August 2014 at 12pm!
The Xiaomi Mi 5,200mAh Power Bank retails for S$8.99 and in comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 10,400mAh Power Bank still retails for S$13.99. Regardless of which battery capacity size you buy, shipping is an additional S$5 via UPS or Fedex.
The Mactrix Dual 9000 is the larger sibling of the Mactrix Dual 5200. It is retailing for S$99 and comes in three colors: red, black and champagne gold.
Similar to the Mactrix Dual 5200, you can get it at the usual authorized Apple Stores like Epicentre, Nubox or istudio. It is also available in Robinsons and Isetan as well as smaller stores like X Gear, Audio Ace Electronics, Sim Guan Electronics and Mobile8.
