Xiaomi Mi 5,000mAh Power Bank

· · · Battery & Power

The new Xiaomi Mi 5,000mAh Power Bank is replacing the short-lived Xiaomi Mi 5,200mAh Power Bank.

It was put on sale for the first time in Singapore at 12pm on 13th February 2015. The sale is meant to coincide with Lunar New Year and hence it is an open sale instead of the usual limited flash sales. Open sale means you get to purchase Mi products anytime.

Aukey 48W 9.6A 4-Port Car Charger

The second product that I ordered from Aukey is the Aukey 48W 9.6A 4-Port Car Charger. It is retailing for US$16.99 (S$23) on Amazon. I have not seen a similar charger like this from Anker before.

This is the most powerful car charger that I have seen in the market because it is capable of a 9.6A combined output and since there it is a 4-port charger, each port can output a maximum of 2.4A simultaneously.

Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger

I have been seeing the brand Aukey appearing quite often on Gizmodo’s Deals and it seems to be a good alternative to Anker. From the looks of the design, it seems both company get from similar OEMs.

So when Aukey contacted me asking me to feature/review their products, I accepted the offer. I just need to pay for shipping from HopShopGo since they don’t ship directly to Singapore from Amazon.

Xiaomi’s Mi Pad Available In Singapore Tomorrow

· · · Tablet

Xiaomi’s Mi Pad will be available in Singapore tomorrow, 10th February 2015 at 12pm for S$299. This time round, Xiaomi did not state the quantity of Mi Pad available so I am guessing they are not expecting the demand to be high.

Only the 16GB white will be available whereas in China, you will get a choice of 16GB or 64GB with six colors: white, red, black, blue, green and yellow.

Herschel Supply Settlement Backpack (Navy/Mandarin)

· · · Case, Dock & Bag

I always wanted to get a Herschel Supply‘s backpack but just lack the impulse to do so because I already have lots of bags.

The impulse came when I was shopping around Orchard Road with my secondary school friend who is back in Singapore for a week.
