things I have bought for my macbook pro

just for sharing the stuff I have gotten for my computer:

Hard cover (no longer using)
https://shopee.sg/product/86634598/1449973261

USB Hub (a little warm when using but I do not think it is too hot to touch. If i know Ugreen has a similar one I would have gotten it, as I think ugreen quality not bad)
https://shopee.sg/product/86634598/1483807840

Keyboard cover
https://shopee.sg/product/86634598/1484479860

Front (top) and back(bottom) sticker
https://shopee.sg/product/108157503/1708420459

Palm rest and trackpad protector
https://shopee.sg/product/108157503/1876218897

stand or feet (no longer using as I bought the next item)
https://shopee.sg/product/90339629/1856956228

Another stand (I think it is a imitation from a kickstarter)
https://shopee.sg/product/48834674/1941347129

Another usb hub (for using on recently bought Surface Go which also can use for macbook)
https://shopee.sg/product/64922680/1148147510

I also have xiaomi usb c power adapter (went to shop to buy at i think $25, came with a usb c to usb c cable too, same as this)
https://shopee.sg/Cable-USB-C-to-USB...738.1828113070

ZMI powerbank 20000mah version bought for use with nintendo switch (can also charge macbook, bought from qoo10 but similar to this one)
https://shopee.sg/Xiaomi-ZMI-15000-m...563.1057256946

For the last 2 items, i would suggest these 2 replacement instead:
power adapter:
Just saw this with 2 usb A and a usb C (usb c up to 45w)
https://shopee.sg/Tsm★XIAOMI-ZMI-HA8...305.2198170861

A new version from the 45w I have but 65w, means can charge faster
https://shopee.sg/Original-Xiaomi-65...280.1460711304

Powerbank:

Disclaimer:I do not guarantee the reliability for this links have posted here, do not blame me if the product spoils or the seller runs away with your money. However, I thinks shopee will only release the funds to the seller if you confirm receipt so should be quite safe. I also don't know if the links I posted is the cheapest or best deal, please do your own searches in lazada, shopee or qoo10.

No bubbles lah.... it is not screen protector.

They will not leave residue, i have removed mine after 1 year to change to another design.
I think good brand sticker like dbrand usually no residue (not cheap), they are usually easier to apply too. Even if got residue, should be able to remove with some solvent like lighter fluid or goo gone as the surface is aluminium and not much/no opening that the fluid can slip in.

Just a tip, if the sticker is folded and got crease, can try using a hair dryer to heat a little to soften the sticker, might be able to remove or reduce the visibility of the crease line. Can do the same let the sticker to soften (press down firmly after heating) for rounded edges.

Just seen the skin design looks nice leh!



Yes, they have a wide range of skins. Am using the black dragon skin. I prefer something subtle and this skin have more grip compared to the rest - I have sweaty hands....
