Mophie Apple Watch Dock

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is retailing for S$79 at EpiCentre at ION Orchard, iStudio at Paragon, Nubox at Raffles City, and Nubox at Tampines Mall. However, this product is currently out of stock in Singapore as a result of overwhelming demand. So I suggest you call up those stores to reserve one if you are interested in getting it. I hope eventually it will be available online at Apple Online Store (Singapore).

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is the best Apple Watch stand/dock available in Singapore. I have the Spigen Apple Watch Stand S330 and played with the Griffin WatchStand, and I still prefer the Mophie Apple Watch Dock.

ARQ Dock 2.0

ARQ Dock by 2040 Design Studio is an aluminum modular nesting dock for smartphones or tablets with or without cases on. It’s unique feature allows you to group several ARQ Docks together so that it looks neater. Looks can sometimes be deceiving because the cables from the group of ARQ docks is pretty messy as well.

The default packaging comes with a micro USB cable. It supports official and third party Apple 30pin cables, Apple Lightning cables, micro USB cables and Samsung USB 3.0 cables.

Twelve South HiRise For iPhone 5 & iPad Mini

In Sydney, almost everything there is more expensive than in Singapore maybe except for coffee and this HiRise dock. I bought the Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad Mini from Apple Store Sydney for AU$34.95 (S$41). In Apple Online Store (Singapore), the same dock is retailing for S$49.

This HiRise dock is compatible with all Apple Lighting devices maybe except for the iPad. Though I tested with an iPad Air and it fits fine, it is very flimsy and easily topple from the side of the dock.

I was one of the early backers for OCDock (Kickstarter). I backed the project last year on the 4th December 2012 and the project got funded on 22nd December 2012 after raising US$107,979 despite the initial goal was only US$49,000.

The project was delayed by a few months, it was suppose to be shipping in January 2013 but I only got my last week on the 10th May 2013.

Elevation Dock

Elevation Dock was the 8th Kickstarter project that I backed. I backed it this year on the 7th February 2012 and the project got funded on the 12th February 2012. They raised a total of US$1,464,706 out of the initial goal of just US$75,000. It was supposed to be shipped in April 2012 before iPhone 5 was announced but unfortunately, there was a delay and I only received it 6 months later on the 18th October 2012.

I pledged US$79 for the Elevation Dock+ in glass bead blasted finish. The Dock+ adds shielded Line Level audio out plus USB power adapter and for international shipping it is an additional US$20. Paid a total of US$99 (S$121).

Bluelounge MiniDock

Ordered the Bluelounge MiniDock (UK variant) from bluelounge.com for US$19.95 (~S$24.20). It was my first purchase over the website as the MiniDock is not yet sold in Singapore.

The shipping cost is about US$4.15 (~S$5) via USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). This shipping method is the cheapest but it is delivered via normal mail when it reaches Singapore as it does not come with a tracking number. Also my box is a little bit damage, but at just S$5 for shipping, I can’t really complain much. My item was shipped on 20th August 2011 and I received it on 8th September 2011 (about 20 days).

Apple iPhone 4 Universal Dock Adapters

When I first got my iPhone 3G back in 2008, I searched high and low for the dock adapter for my universal dock. I could not find it on Apple Singapore Online Store or in any authorized Apple Reseller Shops.

I only got it a year after (in 2009) when I went to Taiwan for my graduate trip and I saw it selling in an authorized Apple Reseller Shop.

Desk Genie Non-Slip Charging Desk Stand Review

The Desk Genie Non-Slip Charging Desk Stand as the name suggest, is a non-slip charging stand that holds your mobile phone while it charges. In addition to that, it acts as a 8-in-1 memory card reader as well as a 2 port USB hub.

iPhone 3G/3GS USB Desktop Sync & Charge Cradle Review

Received my Apple iPhone 3GS / 3G USB Desktop Sync & Charge Cradle from MobileFun yesterday. It is a good alternative to the Apple iPhone 3G Dock (£22) and Apple Universal Dock (£36) because it cost only £9.99 and it works exactly the same.

It comes with the cradle, the MiniUSB to USB cable and the charger head.
