Review: Mountek nGroove Snap+ (CD Slot Car Mount)

Before I purchase the Mountek nGroove Snap+ Magnetic CD Slot Car Mount, I always wonder how many people really make use of the CD player in the car nowadays. There are many different shapes and sizes of car mounts that I have used previously but none is to my liking. Those that are mounted to the windscreen or dashboards would leave permanent markings after prolong usage, and those that are mounted at the air-con vent would block the cool air reaching me. This is going to be a simple and straightforward review as there is no technical specification involved. Either you like it or you don’t.

The Mountek nGroove Snap+ Magnetic CD Slot Car Mount, as its name says so, is one that is attached onto the car CD player slot. You can then tighten it accordingly using the screw attached. It leaves no residue behind even after a long period of usage, especially if you were to park your car under the hot sun frequently. Placing and removing your devices from the Mountek Snap+ Mount is easy and quick as it makes use of magnets to hold your device to the mount. No additional effort is required!

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 WiFi (SM-T700)

I have been hunting around the market for a suitable tablet to replace my ageing ASUS Transformer TF201. Initially, I was quite drawn to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro. But after see news leakage on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, I decided to hold my purchase and wait for its release. There is a steep discount going on for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro now. On paper, it seemed that this tablet would the one that I have been waiting for. Finally, when the Samsung Galaxy Tab S was released in Singapore on 12 July 2014, I decided to drop by the stores to check out ASAP since I just arrived back from my enjoyable Adelaide trip with Annabelle & Ashley. Stay tuned for that post soon!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S

My first impression.. woah! I was totally blown off by the colours produced by the Super AMOLED screen. Next, I was scanning at the thickness of this tablet versus the ones displayed beside in the showroom. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S was indeed slimmer even when comparing to the already very slim iPad Mini. It was a mere 6.6mm thick! I was pretty much torn between selecting the Samsung Galaxy Tab S and the iPad Mini Retina before looking at the actual product. Now, the decision is simple. I have decided to go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S!

Review: Anker® 40W 5-Port USB Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology

I have been looking around the market for quite a long while to hunt for a quality-built USB charger, so that I can consolidate my exponentially growing electronic devices into a “charging corner”. Finally, Anker has come out with a 5-port 40W USB charger! This means that you could charge your devices up to 8Amps in total on the 5 ports provided. In layman terms, it means you are able to charge 3 tablets (2Amps each) and 2 phones (1Amp each) simultaneously!

Next, it comes my concern for the size of the charger. Not only do I want this charger to work at home, I want to bring it around when I travel especially to places where power sockets are hard to come by. Well, it is the same size of a credit card and about 2.5cm thick. What more can I ask for?
