Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

Bougt the Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation) the moment it got released on 20th October 2016. It is a pretty much must buy item if you are a tech geek as it only costs US$49.99 (S$71).

I have two Amazon Echo at home. One in the Living Room and one in the Master Bed Room. I used it to controlled my water heater, lights, television and playing radio on it via TuneIn. It makes me even a lazier person. I used to switched on or off my lights manually, but now I have Alexa (Virtual Assistant of Amazon Echo) to do it for me.

DYMO LabelManager 280 Rechargeable Hand-Held Label Maker

The DYMO LabelManager 280 Rechargeable Hand-Held Label Maker was having a goldbox deal on Amazon on 7th January 2016. The normal retail price is US$91.79 (S$132) but for the goldbox deal, it drops to US$18.99 (S$27.18). Now, it is back up to US$26.98 (S$39).

Unfortunately, it doesn’t ship directly to Singapore, so you have to use a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

Mounting Nest Cam Outdoors

I am intending to mount my Nest Cam outside my new house. If you are like me and intend to mount it outside, you would probably need three Nest Cam accessories.

Unfortunately, all three accessories doesn’t ship to Singapore directly from Amazon and hence you have to use a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

Nexus 6P Official Case

The Nexus 6P Official Case was out of stock for quite sometime on the Google Store. I have been trying to get it but to no avail.

I am surprised that it came back on Black Friday and this is where Google Store is having a 50% on all cases and selected accessories.

Nubee NUB8380 Temperature Gun

I bought the Nubee Temperature Gun from Amazon for US$13.59 (S$20) together with the Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure. It also doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The Nubee temperature gun is a non-contact digital laser infrared thermometer that lets you obtain a temperature reading of a surface such as stoves, ovens, food and fish tanks.

Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure

I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.

Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.

Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger

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).
