Joule Cell Rechargeable Battery by Gosh!

I know most electronics now comes with rechargeable batteries. However, most remotes are still powered by batteries. Although these batteries aren't expensive, they can still add up.

As for me, I'm playing Fatal Frame on my Wii (I know its old, but I WANT TO finish the game) and my wiinote eats up AA battery like a hungry monster. (Say, about 2 every 2-4 days)

SO I started searching online for an "solution" and I finally found the Joule Cell by Gosh!  They cost SG$1.90 per box!!

Joule Cell

NiMH (nickel metal hydride)1.2V AA Size (Comes with AAA size too, but the AAA ones I got was slightly rusty and defective ... but I'm too lazy to go down and get it change)
Charging Current: 5V/1100mAh

LED Indicator: Red for charging; Blue when done charging 

In the box, they included a USB charging cable with 2 micro USB outputs and of course 2 AA batteries. (This cost SG$1.90!)

Hi, this is Hiby LovesEarphones!

I actually started this blog to write about budget earphones. I tend to misplace/damage my earphones because I'm a rough user, sometimes I left my earphones in my pocket and dumped it into the washing machine. (Don't worry, 9.5/10 of them survived the wash and came out more shining than before ...)

I do have some more "mid-range" (a Sennheiser MM30i, about SG$55) pair but after losing it, I went into a state of depression (just kidding) and was pretty convinced that maybe I shouldn't buy something so expensive ever again, because the chance of losing it again is high.

So I started a "journey" to get more budget earphones, something below SG$30 that doesn't irritate my ears or make them bleed. I've tried many pairs - SoundMagic E10C, Remax Rm-610D, RM-305M, 1More 1M301... etc and I'll be sharing my experience about them with you guys. But do take note that I'm no professional or sound engineer with great knowledge, I'm just sharing my experience.

However, earphones are not the only things that I seek for cheaper alternatives.

I tend to turn to Chinese/underdog brands for things like electronics and mobile related gadgets too.
So basically, this blog is about "budget/cheaper alternatives" and probably where to get them (either online like Taobao, Qoo10, Aliexpress blah). And of course, some of my daily rants and boring life...
