Just Mobile AluCable Flat Mini

· · · Cable

Just Mobile AluCable Flat Mini as the name sounds, is the flat version of the Just Mobile AluCable Mini.

The Just Mobile AluCable Flat Mini is a 4″/10cm USB-to-Lightning sync/charge cable with premium slim-design aluminum connectors.

The cable is also available in a longer length called Just Mobile AluCable Flat which measures 4ft/1.2m in length.

I got it from city’super at Harbour City in Hong Kong for HK$149 (S$26).

I have not seen this cable being sold in Singapore yet. If I do, I will update this post again with the price and the place selling it.

Power Support – Air Jacket Force (Clear) for iPhone 6 Plus

If you have bought the Power Support Air Jacket from Apple Store Online or from official Apple Stores, you will realised that it is actually Air Jacket Force. Power Support Air Jacket Force is an exclusive item available only in Apple Stores.

The difference between the normal Air Jacket and Air Jacket Force is the raised bezel on the case that protrudes the screen a little (not flushed with the screen). This ensures that your screen is slightly off the surface of a table if you decide to place your iPhone 6/6 Plus screen facing down. Today I learned (TIL) that the term for that is called “lip“.

Apparently, this is a requirement for manufacturers if they want to get their case sold on Apple Stores.

Apple is also now requiring that cases protect an iPhone, iPad, or iPod’s cover glass when lying flat on a surface like a table. Cases must now provide a buffer of at least 1mm between the cover glass and a flat surface. Case makers have two choices to achieve this: either they cover the glass entirely or have part of the case protrude from the cover glass slightly to keep it from touching a flat surface.

I got mine from Hong Kong Apple Store at Festive Walk for HK$248 (S$43). Surprisingly, it is even cheaper in Singapore. Apple Online Store Singapore is selling it for only S$39 for both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The normal Air Jacket for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is retailing for S$45 and the Air Jacket Set is retailing for S$59. The difference between Air Jacket and Air Jacket Set is the later includes a Power Support screen protector.

Power Support’s Air Jacket is one of the best clear case for iPhones. I have been using it since iPhone 5s. The case is fitting, well-built, thin (1.2mm thick), and light weight (30g). It comes in four colors: Clear Matt, Black, Smoke and Clear.

The only down side for clear plastic cases in general is that after long period of use, there will be lots of scratches on it.

If you are looking for a good clear case for your iPhone 6/6 Plus, do consider the Power Support Air Jacket Force!

thecoopidea Pasta Micro USB Cable

· · · Cable

Bought the thecoopidea Pasta Micro USB Cable from city’super at Harbour City in Hong Kong as well for HK$78 (S$14). I saw it being sold in Challenger for S$15.

I notice that in my box, they included two micro USB cables whereas on the website, it states it has only one. I guess I am lucky.

The thecoopidea Pasta Micro USB Cable is a 1m flat cable and is available in three colors: Pink, Blue and Black.

Similar to the thecoopidea Pasta Lightning Cable, I am pretty disappointed with the quality of the Micro USB and USB ends of the cable. It has the same problem as the Lightning Cable. There are some glue overflowing to the metal connector and that makes it looks cheap.

thecoopidea Pasta Lightning Cable

· · · Cable

Bought the thecoopidea Pasta Lightning Cable from city’super at Harbour City in Hong Kong for HK$148 (S$26).

I saw it being sold in Singapore, but I can’t remember the price for it. I will update this post again once I get hold of the price.
*UPDATE 17th January 2015* In Singapore, I saw Funan’s Challenger selling it for S$29.

In case you did not read my previous post on thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block, thecoopidea is a Hong Kong company founded by two friends who grew up in New Zealand.

The thecoopidea Pasta Lightning Cable is a 1m flat cable and is available in three colors: Pink, Blue and Black.

I am pretty disappointed with the quality of the Lightning and USB ends of the cable. The plastic seems cheaply/poorly made with some glue overflowing to the metal connector. The cable itself is still alright.
