Roborock has a whole range of vacuum-mop robots for different budgets and preferences.

If you’re looking for a basic cleaning robot that vacuums and mops your floor for you, go for the Roborock Q7 Max or Roborock S7.

If you vacuum frequently and don’t like the hassle of emptying out the dust cartridge, you can go for a Roborock Q7 Max+ or Roborock S7+ which comes with an auto-emptying dock so that you only need to change out the dust bag once every seven weeks, depending on how dusty is your home.

Review: Belkin BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe 15W

Tuesday, September 20th, 2022

I asked an Apple fan what his favourite Apple accessory was, and he gave me this 3-min rundown of why he loves his BoostCharge 3-in-1 Wireless Charger from Belkin.

Belkin’s aesthetic BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 15W Wireless Charger offers convenience and fast power with MagSafe technology.

Dylan currently uses the BoostCharge 3-in-1 7.5W Wireless Charger for his iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro.

He is planning to buy the BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe 15W for his new Apple 14 Pro Max, Watch Series 8 and AirPods Pro.

The first and foremost benefit of the 3-in-1 Wireless Charger is that Dylan is able to charge three devices simultaneously with only one power outlet.

This is convenient both at home and in his office — especially at home since his other family members are also Apple fans with iPhones, Watches and AirPods to charge as well.

When he doesn’t have THREE available power outlets (or multiplugs), he’d usually have to charge only one device at a time and only move on to the next device when the previous one had completed charging.

Dylan loves how compact and tidy the wireless charger is – instead of three separate charging cables to three separate devices, there is only one cable from the power outlet to the 3-in-1 wireless charger.

And the upright charger for the iPhone doubles up as a phone stand so he can talk handsfree, FaceTime or record a voice memo while the phone is on the wireless charging stand.

We are all familiar with surround sound, where the sound is expanded beyond a mono or stereo speakers to encapsulate the listener for a more immersive audio experience.

Signify is offering surround lighting with its Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box (RRP: S$419) – extending the visual experience from the confines of the television (or computer monitor) to beyond the display itself to the surroundings.

What you’ll need to set up a synchronised surround lighting from scratch (sold separately): Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box, Philips Hue Play light bars, Philips Hue Bridge. You’ll also need the free Philips Hue app and Philips Hue Sync apps to set up and program the lights and synchronisation.

I’d installed a 65-inch Android TV from Prism+ in my living room a few months back and had been enjoying the big screen experience at home.

The basic box set for the Philips Hue Play light bar comes in a pack of two at an RRP of S$209. Currently selling online at S$146.

But that living space was a tad boring with the TV sitting on a plain cabinet against a blank wall – even though the yellow wall had been painted with an arty sponge effect.

To add some coloured ambient lighting, I got a pair of Philips Hue Play light bars and stood them on either side of the TV, atop the TV cabinet.

The light bars were really easy to set up and took all of five minutes: simply plug each light into the smart plug that came with the Hue Play light bar double pack, stick that plug into the power socket and switch on.
