YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick

· · · Camera

Despite selfie being so popular last year, I don’t own a selfie stick myself. And hence when I was in Hong Kong last December, I am determined to get a good one.

I chanced upon the YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick in SIMCITY (47-51 Shantung Street, Mongkok, Kowloon) and it was the best quality selfie stick that I can find within budget of S$20. In fact, it cost only HK$98 (S$17).

Surprisingly, Amazon carries it as well and it is named Brand YunTeng 4-Section Retractable Handheld Monopod Selfie Stick for GoPro Hero and it cost US$15.99 (S$22).

YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick weighs 210g and it can support up to 2.5KG of weight. It’s height is 43cm and it can be extended till 123cm via it’s 4-section retractable body. It’s grip is made of sponge and it comes with a phone holder.

Belkin Tablet Charger (2.1A)

The other item I got from Belkin Singapore for Christmas is the Belkin Tablet Charger. In case you did not read my previous post, I also got the Belkin Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable (4ft) from Belkin Singapore for Christmas.

I think the Belkin Tablet Charger has been renamed to Belkin Universal Home Charger since I could not find the Tablet Charger being listed on their website and the Universal Home Charger looks exactly the same (besides the color) as the Tablet Charger.

I will update this post again when I get the price they are selling in Singapore. I saw it retailing at Harvey Norman at Westmall for S$29. There is also another variant with 2 ports and it outputs a total of 4.2A and that is retailing for S$39.

This charger is a 10 watt charger capable of outputting 2.1A of power to charge your USB devices. My only complain is that it has only one USB output port.

These days, people definitely have more than one devices that needs to be charge via USB, so I don’t see a point in getting a single USB port charger be it for home, work or travel.

At home, I am using the Griffin PowerDock 5 which has five USB output ports to charge my devices.

At work, I am using the Bolse 40W (5V/8A) 5-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger which also has five USB output ports to charge my devices.

When travelling, I will use the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger which also has five USB output ports to charge my devices.
