Pimp my iPad 2 Part 3

The reason I love Apple products are the vast selections of cheap apparels.
My favourite vender has just updated their range of cheap clones for me to Pimp my iPad 2.
The case comes with a free screen cleaner.


This black case is unlike my earlier Scarlet version.
This case is a slip-in pouch that comes with a Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover-like flap.
The design of the flap is exactly like the Smart Cover, so you can expect the flap to do the same job as the Smart Cover.
The texture of the case is in faux felt finish.


Low angle stand mode


High angle stand mode


Most apparel stores will sell such a similar case at around S$40.
I scored this for S$19 only :)

CAO Mop - Spin and Go Pro mop clone

If you are a homemaker or simply just want to have a cleaner, easier and hassle-free floor-mopping experience,
do away with the traditional mop heads that drips non-stop and requires occasional hang-wringing.
Spin mops are the in thing these days.
It first started with the original Spin and Go Pro sold at a premium price tag, however, clones have been making their way into the heartland malls.
Not only are the clones cheaper, some of them have an even better design of the original.

After researching on a couple of clones ranging from S$29-$49, from step-spin models to standalone spinner models, I have decided to get the CAO Mop from Taiwan. The CAO Mop is distributed by a local agent and consigned at all OG outlets. To see a live demonstration, visit OG Chinatown.

CAO Mop
S$49

So how is the CAO Mop different from the original?
Apart from the slight differences in appearance, the CAO Mop utilizes a glass ball bearing which gives smooth and fast spinning with the possibility of rusting and greasing.
The CAO Mop spinner assembly is improvised with a splash guard which prevents splashes while the water is spun out from the mop head.
Otherwise, there is really nothing much different, you can also use the replacement mop heads from any clones.
 




The ongoing promotion comes with a free microfiber dry mop wipe worth S$10.

CAO Mop head
This mop head is a replaceable item. It can be purchased from any major departmental store.
If you observe the design, it is actually a universal design with other brands and clones.
If you cannot find the CAO Mop head, just buy any of the clone mop heads or the Spin-and-Go Pro mop head.
The mop head is attached to the base of the mop stick.
Check out their effort to make a fan blade design :p
The mop head can flex at angles to make mopping possible at various angles.
The mop head has 2 sets of strands; inner ring are short strands while outer ring are long strands.


Watch how fast the CAO Mop spin and go!

UPDATED

Check out the CAO Mop in action from dripping to dry in seconds!
Notice how the improvised splash guard prevents water splatters during spinning, something missing in the original Spin and Go Pro.
