Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable (2)

· · · Cable

In my previous post about Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable, I mentioned that it is not available in stores because it is exclusively available at Apple Online Store (Singapore). I was somewhat wrong, apparently you can get a similar Belkin 6″ Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable in stores.

However, instead of the four colors which is sold online, there are only two colors in stores which is black and white. I saw it in Funan’s Challenger and is retailing for S$22. You will need to take note of the length of the cable indicated on the box because there are a few lengths available. Apparently, the 6″ (15cm) is the hardest to find. I only saw one box left in that store while other lengths have a few boxes left.

Just Mobile AluCable Mini

· · · Cable

Just Mobile AluCable Mini is a short (4″/10cm) USB to Lightning cable that is finished in aluminium. I always wanted to get it and it is on my Amazon’s wishlist for a good period of time. However the shipping cost is just not worth it (doesn’t qualify for free shipping to Singapore).

The AluCable Mini is 5cm shorter than the Belkin 6″/15cm Lightning to USB ChargeSync Cable and that makes it the shortest good quality Lightning to USB cable that I owned after Kero – Lightning Nomad Cable.

Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector (2014)

· · · Cable, Innergie

When I first bought the Innergie MagiCable Duo With Lightning Connector in October last year, my main complain with the cable is that the base of the Lightning head is too wide and it will not fit some cases like the Apple iPhone 5s Case or the Power Support – Air Jacket Set for iPhone 5/5s.

Apparently, Innergie refreshed the cable quietly and this time round, the base of the Lightning head is much slimmer and there is a slight allowance right below the lightning connector to allow it to fit most if not all iPhone 5/5s cases.

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod

· · · Camera

Breffo Adventure Camera Tripod is a versatile tripod that allows you to hang, grip, hold and stand on almost any surface. The tripod is coated with a layer of advanced soft touch rubber coating that makes it waterproof and durable.

I like the grip and friction of the rubber coating, it makes the tripod more stable when gripping on a rounded surface like a pole.

Nokia Lumia 930 Available In Singapore On 12th July 2014

· · · Mobile Phone

Nokia Lumia 930 will be available in Singapore starting tomorrow, 12th July 2014 for S$789 at Nokia Stores, Nokia Solution Partners and at all 3 local operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub). All four colors: bright orange, bright green, black and white will be available at launch.

I will be getting my Nokia Lumia 930 in orange without contact from MobyShop because they are selling it for S$699 only and the stocks will arrive later today. While I am there, I will be trading in my HTC One (32GB) for S$250 since I have no use for another Android phone after owning a Nexus 5.

Bolse 25W (5V/5A) 4-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger

When I received an email from Bolse asking me to feature their products, I was pretty skeptical because I have never heard of Bolse before. So I went to do a search on them and realised that their products received pretty good ratings on Amazon and the prices are pretty reasonable. They are the direct competitors to brand like Anker.

The first product I gotten is the Bolse 25W (5V/5A) 4-Port USB Wall/Desktop Charger, which is retailing for US$18.99 (S$24) on Amazon.
