TYLT Energi 5k+ Battery Pack

Not many people heard of the brand TYLT before and that includes me. But I recognised the bold colors used in their nicely designed product packaging and only then I realised, the brand name is TYLT.

I still could not figured out what TYLT stands for and it is not written in their about page.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar Carry-bag

The Creative Sound Blaster Roar carry-bag is retailing for S$19 and is only available exclusive at Creative Stores. I got mine for free as it comes along with the Creative Sound Blaster Roar that I bought at Sitex 2014.

I am not very impressed with the quality of the bag. Because it is a fabric mesh (net), there are a lot of loose threads that came off when I opened the packaging. It also feels very cheaply made. If it comes along as a free gift, then it is fine. Don’t bother paying S$19 for it. I rather you save the money and get a better alternative bag.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar

After reviewing the X-mini CLEAR and asking my fellow tech blogger, Renhao, who is an audiophile, we came to conclusion that X-mini CLEAR isn’t worth S$299.

So I decided to get another portable speaker for my dad. Renhao recommended the Creative Sound Blaster Roar and besides him, I also read many online reviews saying the Roar is good and value for money.

thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block

I always wanted to get the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block but just no impulse to buy it. The Coop Idea was co-founded by two friends who grew up ​in New Zealand who currently resides in Hong Kong.

The recommended retail price (RRP) of the thecoopidea 10.6A Power Block is S$99, however MobyShop is selling it for S$79.90. That is the cheapest I could find till I went to Sitex 2014 and saw it being sold at S$79 at Nubox booth.

Cadbury Glow is positioned by Cadbury as a premium chocolate gift, similar to Ferrero Rocher. Each of the chocolate praline is crated in Europe. The outer layer is made of milk chocolate, while the inner filling is made of dark chocolate.
