4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger

· · · Battery & Power

Bought the 4A AC Power Adapter 6-Port USB Travel Charger from TrendsMobile which is located at Funan for S$29.90.

It has an output of 4A, but unfortunately it is shared with the 6 USB ports, I wish it says what is the maximum output per USB port. But nevertheless, I still think it is a pretty useful charger to have if you have plenty of USB devices to charge.

OSIM uMist

I sleep in an air-condition room almost all the time and ever since my LASIK, I am more conscious about the dryness of my eye as I don’t want my degree to regress. When I sleep, my eyelids are not fully close (I have no idea why) and I get extreme dry eyes when I wake up the next morning.

My LASIK doctor had already prescribed me with Duratears for me to apply everynight before I sleep and to wear an eye goggle.

Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for S$299 and available in 4 colors (Blue, Red, Black and White).

My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.

Lenovo Announces Range Of Touch-Enabled PCs With a Variety Of Form Factors

Lenovo has a bunch of new computers that will be available during and some after PC Show 2013 which will be held at Singapore Expo from 6th to 9th June 2013.

IdeaCentre Horizon
The IdeaCentre Horizon was the first thing that caught my eye at the event because it looks like a Microsoft PixelSense. It is running on Windows 8 Pro with Lenovo own’s Aura interface. It is still a little pale in comparison if you compare it with Microsoft PixelSense interface.

Chromebooks Now Available In Singapore

Chromebooks have arrived in Singapore and for some reasons, they are only on sale at Courts and not elsewhere like Challenger, Harvey Norman or Best Denki. I guess Courts got the exclusivity rights for the time being.

3 models of Chromebook are available, HP Pavilion Chromebook (S$449), Samsung Chromebook (S$449) and Acer C7 Chromebook (S$369).
