5 tech products that impressed us

DJI Avata

Over here at Can Buy or Not, we review a ton of stuff. Not a literal ton, mind you, but it's a lot. And while most of the products we review are great — otherwise we wouldn't bother recommending them — there have some occasional duds, but not many. It's a good thing then, that there are great tech products that have really impressed us, and here are five.

Xiaomi Magnetic Wireless Power Bank

The Xiaomi Magnetic Wireless Power Bank (P05ZM) has a very generic name. However, it's actually made for the iPhone. Of course, you can't have Xiaomi, an Android smartphone maker, throw terms like “Apple iPhone” and “MagSafe compatible” into its product names. So here we are. The standout feature for this product is a dock for convenient recharging of the power bank.

Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED

The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED isn't the first laptop to have a foldable display. But while its design doesn't stray too far from last year's pioneering Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, the Zenbook has shown me that bigger is better. In this case, the Asus transforms from a 12.5-inch notebook into a something akin to a desktop all-in-one (AIO) computer. One with a 17-inch display, that is. Is it practical and usable? Just about. Is it something you should buy now? Well, if you don't mind paying over S$5,000 for being an early adopter, the foldable future is here now.

Intel 13th-gen Raptor Lake Core i5-13600K and i9-13900K

Intel's latest 13th-gen Raptor Lake processors, the Core i5-13600K and Core i9-13900K, run hot. But they are fast, and pack more performance than AMD's latest Ryzen 7000 Series offerings. The Core i5-13600K is your value for money option at US$319 versus the US$299 Ryzen 5 7600X. Its strong multi-core and single-core performance speak for itself. The Core i9-13900K is even faster than the Ryzen 9 7900X, but you will need a strong cooler to keep temps down. The KF versions without integrated graphics cost US$20 less.

Ugreen Nexode 140W Charge

I like fast chargers, and the Ugreen Nexode 140W Charger is kan fast (Singlish for very fast). It's also a GaNFast charger, which uses a power management integrated circuit developed by Navitas. Based on gallium nitride tech, this compact but powerful charger is easily able to juice up your laptop quickly, or split the power between its two USB-C and single USB-A ports.

DJI Avata

If soaring through the air like a bird and seeing the world from lofty heights sounds great to you, then the DJI Avata is a great choice. This first-person view (FPV) drone is sold alone, or with a set of FPV googles and controller. Our review unit comes with the S$1,879 Pro-View Combo, which packs the new DJI Goggles 2 and DJI Motion Controller. The cheaper S$1,549 bundle packs the older DJI FPV Goggles V2. Seriously, this is an impressive tech gadget to get.
