Anker PowerPort+ 5 USB-C with USB Power Delivery
https://shopee.sg/Anker-PowerPort-5-...1846.186155022

This one is of better value. It's rated at 60W and has Power Delivery too. There are 4 extra USB-A ports for charging too. I'm using it to charge my MacBook Pro TB 15" and other devices when I travel. Working well so far.

Use Bluetooth mouse. Maybe can work.

I never put screen protector for iPads or iPhones, the screens are tougher than you think.

Bought the Logitech Slim Combo with detachable keyboard for 10.5-inch iPad Pro, keyboard is good but adds a fair bit of weight to the tablet. I am trying to see if iPad 10.5 Pro can replace my Surface Pro 4 and iPad Air2 when I travel. But without a mouse, hard to see iPad Pro ever able to replace Surface Pro 4 for me to work on Excel files.

For xiaomi and Anker adapter.. is it charge faster than the apple 29W adapter?
Btw, what apps are you using to edit photos / PDF etc or note taken (apple pencil)?

I am using AUKEY 30,000mAh powerbank. Very solidly built though its heavy and bulky.
Anyone know where is the best place to purchase? Any idea how much?

Went to get ipad pro 256 gold on Sat at the Apple store.

Open 1st set, scratches on the back of the ipad.
2nd set, also scratches on bezel n back of the ipad.
3rd set, few dots on apple logo, and a dead pixel on the screen.
4th set - hopefully no issue. (cross fingers)

Well, apple quality check not up to standard? Or mayb I suay.
Nevertheless, apple store provide damn good service and lots of patience with me.
Really thumbs up!
WOW, thats really quite unlucky.. but yes Apple really have one of the best service in the world.

they will send u an email and text message on the collection. they will advise you to add it to your Wallet app.

when you reach the apple store, just inform the staff you re collecting items. they will scan the QR code and check your ID for verification. then re-confirm the item(s) you ordered.

within a few minutes, the items will be brought out for you to check.

if you bought online through employee purchase program (for some companies got special discounts), no need to show staff ID. not too sure about education discount items though.

thanks for the info. don't know where to get the ipad pro. wanted from telco but sold out. will be paying as low as (appx $300 + 15*24 months) for the item. if from store, close to 1.2k. but kinda wanted it asap to start preparation for work purposes.
