Using Karaoke Microphone on your iPhone!

I guess its no secret that I'm always relying on the mic on my earphones to sing on singing application. However, I recently discovered that we do have some spare microphone lying around that we hardly use.

So I did some research online and discovered that its possible to use them with my iPhone and sing with them! There are a few ways to do this, the more expensive way (by getting a cable that connect the mic straight to your phone) or cheaper way by using adapter.

It's obvious which way I chose, right?

Anyway, here is what you need:

1) Microphone and XLR Cable (obviously) - $0.
If you already have a microphone, you probably have these already.

 2) XLR to Mono 3.5mm TRS - $1.

I'm no expert with these audio jacks and their segments. However, I realised that only those with one line will work. 
3) An audio split that works with iPhone. - $2.

Note that the number of lines should be as the photo. (3 lines) And you should get one that work with iPhone!

The audio split will ha…

Hagibis HADE1901-C 6 ports Charging Hub Review

As mentioned before in my earlier post, the Hagibis charging hub is one of the more expensive choice in my list of budget alternatives, costing about SG$20 (excluding shipment). However, it is also the best looking and most powerful one of all. (At least according to the specifications)

Unfortunately, I didn't get it... BUT... There is a "BUT"... My friend was looking for a 6 ports charging hub to replace her slow charging 4 ports plug and free up some sockets for other use. So I recommended her the Hagibis 6 Ports charging hub. She agreed to getting it and letting me try it out!

So here goes my observations!


Material: Alummin Alloy + ABS Plastic
Size: 100 x 70 x 27 mm
Features: Smart ID
Power Cord: 120 cm
Input: AC 100-240V/50-60HZTotal Output: 5V/12A
Each Port Output: 5V/2.4A (Max)

I usually start with the packaging and unboxing. Well, for this charging hub, the packaging is very simple but it doesn't look cheap, instead it has this clean feel to it.

 However, that also makes the unboxing not fun at all... because everything is just so straightforward.

 The charger itself, on the other hand is very very beautiful and nice to hold in your hands. It's slightly heavier than any other of the charging hub I've reviewed and has this slightly rubbery body that works great at preventing the hub for being dragged around.

I did my little testing and observation as well, but due to this being my friend's, I only did a quick one.

Hagibis HADE1901-C 6 ports Charging Hub

I only managed to test the overall charging while using 5 ports of the charger, and here is the readings:

Although I've used 5 ports of the charging hub, I'm only getting readings from 2 ports - 1 charging my iPad Mini 2 and 1 charging my iPhone 6+.

The charging current is about 1500mA when the device are charging from 20-55%. The lowest reading recorded is 1290mA while the highest is 1600mA.

The charger is slightly warm to touch when 5 ports were used simultaneously. Hagibis HADE1901-C 6 ports Charging Hub is the "coolest" charging hub when more than 3 ports were used.

The time taken to charge my jailbroken iPhone 6+ from 20-100% is about 2hrs 40mins.

I am pretty impressed by this charging hub. It's not only very attractive design wise, it also works very well. As you can see from the reviews, none of the charging hub is able to reach or maintain a current of 1500mA as long as the Hagibis HADE1901-C when more than 3 ports were used.

Overall Score: 9.5/10
