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?

Singapore Airshow 2014

This year round, I managed to visit the Singapore Airshow 2014 on the 3rd day of the trade show. As per the past few exhibitions, it was held at the usual Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC). Getting there is pretty simple via the shuttle bus service at $8 per trip.

This time, I am equipped with my new Canon 70D. Being a novice photographer, catching nice pictures during the aerial display is definitely a challenge! There were a total of 4 different displays for the day: Singapore’s Air Force Black Knights, Yakovlev Yak-130, South Korea’s Black Eagles and Indonesia’s Jupiter Aerobatic Team.

First Sweets of the Year @ Jones the Grocer

On the first day of new year, we headed out to Ion Orchard to send in my wallet to Prada for repair (the crystal studs had rust in them *sob sob). It was surprisingly quiet in town and traffic was particularly smooth on a public holiday.  We walked past Jones the Grocer several times at Mandarin Gallery but we did not find a chance to go in for a try given that it was always pretty crowded. Given that it is a quiet public holiday in town, we were torn on whether we should have our tea-break at Jones the Grocer or Becasse. Since we have always wanted to give Jones a try, we decided to forgo the latter for this time and headed on to Jones instead.

Here’s what we ordered,

Review: IDAPT® Universal Charger i2+

Bought the IDAPT® Universal Charger i2+ during one of the daily Woot bargain. This charger comes with different kind of charging tips for you to choose from. The 6 default tips included are Samsung 4, mini-USB, 2x micro-USB, Apple 30-pin, Nokia 2. However, during this Woot’s deal, the lightning tip is included. Hence, in total, it comes with a generous 7 tips. You may also purchase other additional tips which you require like an additional lightning tip, so that you can charge 2 iPhones at the same time.
