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.

Belkin 6″ MIXIT Metallic Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable

· · · Cable

I probably completed my collection of the Belkin 6″/15cm Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable. I have all four colors from the color collection and both colors from the black and white collection.

Now I have all three colors from the metallic collection. The three colors are: Gold, Silver and Grey. The colors are meant to match your iPhone 6/6 Plus colors, Gold, Silver and Space Grey respectively. Similar to previous collections, the metallic collection cables are also available in two lengths, 6″ (15cm) and 4ft (1.2m).

I got mine from Hong Kong Apple Store at IFC Mall for HK$198 (S$34). If you are in Singapore, you can get it from Apple Online Store Singapore which is also selling for the same price of S$34.

The cable ends is made up of high-quality aluminium finish in colors to match your iPhone and it supports 2.4A charging.

iOttie Easy One Touch 2 Car Mount Holder

Previously, I am using the Just Mobile Xtand Go for my car but after changing to iPhone 6 Plus, the Xtand Go can no longer hold it and hence, I have to find an alternative.

The iOttie Easy One Touch 2 Car Mount Holder is the #1 best seller in Amazon’s Cell Phone Cradles, Mounts & Stands category. The usual price is US$29.95 (S$40), but during Black Friday, they brought down the price to US$17.49 (S$23). For shipping to Singapore, it qualifies for the free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping.

HTC RE Camera

· · · Camera

Whenever Li Xiang got a gadget as a present, I get to keep it because she is not into gadgets! The HTC RE Camera was given to her by her company’s client.

The HTC RE Camera is HTC’s take of the GoPro for the normal consumers like me who are not into extreme sports. The RE Camera isn’t shockproof but it is waterproof rated at IPX7 and that means it can be submerged into water of up to 1m for 30 minutes.

The HTC RE Camera was launched in Singapore on 20th December 2014 and is currently retailing for S$348.

Looking Back 2014

· · · Blog

In Looking Back 2013, I wanted to travel to Japan, but that didn’t happen. However, I am still on Holidays in Hong Kong for 13 days (22nd December 2014 – 3rd January 2015)!

For my 2014 resolution/wish, I think is time to save some money because of all the travelling! And to contradict my previous statement, maybe for the 2014 year end holidays, I hope to maybe travel to Tokyo, Japan.

iPhone 6/6 Plus did get a bigger screen and I bought an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB in Space Grey. I had a chance to buy Google Glass but luckily I didn’t as it seems that it is going nowhere and for that money spent, I might as well get another computer.

With regards to gadgets in 2014, I hope to get my hands on Google Glass which I think chances are slim. I hope Apple’s iPhone 6 would have a bigger screen and I might get a Nexus 6 to replace my HTC One!

Most likely we will be getting the keys to our house towards the end of 2015. Maybe for 2015, I hope that all the renovations and home planning will go smoothly!

For gadget related matters, I was hoping to get a GoPro Hero4 Silver and maybe even an iPad Pro!

I would like to wish all my readers, visitors and supporters a very Happy New Year 2015! Hope 2015 will be even a more awesome year for all of us! Stay healthy, stay lucky!
