Bought the Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger together with the Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable for US$39.99 (S$57) and got it to ship through HopShopGo.

This is probably the only trustable USB Type-C Charger that I can find which has more than one USB Type-C port and is reasonably priced. Besides the charger, it also comes with a 1.8m USB Type-C to Type-C cable (USB 2.0 speed) which itself already cost US$19.99 (S$29).

The Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable has been out of stock for quite some time. I managed to buy it when it just got back in stock on 9th November 2015. Because it doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, I have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The retail price is US$12.99 (S$19) excluding shipping fees from HopShopGo and comes in only one length which is 1m. It is a USB 2.0 cable and hence the data transfer speed will be capped at 480Mb/s.

If you are thinking of getting a USB Type-C cable from Amazon, be sure to read Benson Leung’s review on Amazon first.

Benson works in Google and his team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. He has worked on two Pixel products that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1).

The original Chromecast was released on 24th July 2013 and have since sold over 20 million units. 2 years later, Google finally unveiled an updated Chromecast and announced it during a special event that was held on 29th September 2015.

You can call it Chromecast 2 or Chromecast (2015). I would prefer Chromecast (2015) since the product name is still called Chromecast and Google uses the slug “chromecast_2015” in it’s store URL to buy the Chromecast.
