    thanks for all the feedback

    after much consideration i have decided not to buy as it look like the technology is not matured yet and i do not want to buy something that i will only use for my vacation.
    i will conserve my battery to last for the day and charge at night.

    For singapore usage, i already can charge my iPhone at home/at work and in my car, so no real need for an emergency battery now.
    but i will go and see the usb cable at daiso in Japan.

    110 JPY is about $1.70?
    I heard that Singapore Daiso sells it for $2, though I was unfortunate to find it out of stock last week

    Had previously bought an unbranded one off eBay, which works fine though the hook catch is a bit mis-aligned. Comes off easily.
    Exploring! :)

    does daiso still sell the cables?

    just wondering if those SLS stores are stocking up from daiso and reselling at $7?

    btw i went and ask... that sanyo mobile booster requires cables to charge... kinda troublesome.

    thinking of getting a few as xmas pressies for my colleagues using iphones.

    In case anyone is looking for a fast charger that can work with iPad, Just ordered 1 getting it this afternoon.
    The Sanyo KBC-L2BS now available for $75 + delivery.
    This is just a heads up, I am not selling or related to the various online seller.
