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.

Twelve South PlugBug World

Twelve South PlugBug World was announced beginning this year and I have no idea why is it not selling in Singapore yet, not even the Apple Online Store in Singapore.

When Li Xiang went to Hong Kong last week, she bought it for me from the Apple Store in IFC Mall, Hong Kong. It is retailing for HK$348 (S$60). Li Xiang also mentioned that the Twelve South PlugBug World is not displayed on the shelves and you might need to request the store assistant to get it from their storeroom.

Griffin PowerDock 5

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.

4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger

Bought the 4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger from TrendsMobile which is located at Funan for S$29.90.

It has an output of 4A, but unfortunately it is shared with the 6 USB ports, I wish it says what is the maximum output per USB port. But nevertheless, I still think it is a pretty useful charger to have if you have plenty of USB devices to charge.

Innergie USB Charger – 10W Dual USB Auto Adapter

Bought the Innergie USB Charger – 10W Dual USB Auto Adapter from VivoCity’s Challenger for S$29 (member’s price S$26.10). It is a 2 port USB charger for cars that produces 2.1A/10W which is enough to charge the iPad. This is essentially the 2 port version of the Griffin PowerJolt Micro and it looks nicer as well.

Li Xiang and I have been taking turns to charge our iPhones in the car after being outside for the whole day travelling from places to places, with this charger, both of us can charge our iPhones at the same time!

Twelve South PlugBug Charger

Bought the Twelve South PlugBug Charger at the Apple Store at Fashion Show Mall, Las Vegas for US$34.95 and after tax, it costs US$37.78 (S$49.14).

The PlugBug charger acts as an US travel adapter for your MacBook Pro/Air MacSafe Power Adapter and on top of that it gives you an additional USB port that allows you to charge your iPhone or iPad. I find it super useful for hotels that has limited power sockets. If you prefer not to attached it to your MacSafe Power Adapter, no worries as it can be used as a standalone USB charger.
