Apple is on a roll with quiet unveilings this week! A little over two years after the original AirPods launched, the second generation of Apple’s wireless headphones are here.

The new AirPods are powered by the new H1 chip, developed specifically for headphones, delivers better performance efficiency, faster connect times, 50 percent more talk time, and the convenience of hands-free “Hey Siri.”


They come with either a standard charging case or a new wireless charging case. Each case holds additional charges for more than 24 hours of total listening time.

The wireless charging case will work with any Qi wireless charging solution. An LED light indicator located on the front of the case shows charging status. Customers may purchase the wireless charging case separately to work with the first-generation AirPods.

The new AirPods with standard charging case will be available for SG$ 239, the AirPods with the wireless charging case go for SG$ 299, and the standalone wireless charging case retails for SG$ 119 on apple.com/sg and the Apple Store app soon, and in Apple Stores later this spring.

Global Sources: Content Creator Essentials

We found the must-have portable lighting setup for creators

Published

Here at Global Sources we’ve been on the lookout for products that you might be interested in either buying or selling, but in the process we found gadgets, equipment, and accessories that we like. As traveling creators, we’re still in the process of figuring out how to have a more efficient and effective mobile studio that we can carry with us wherever.

Telesin’s egg-shaped charging cases are perfect for our Sony a7s batteries — they’re colourful and handy. They also double as memory card readers and holders. We also found portable LED lights from Number King that makes setting up fuss-free. It has a built-in battery but is slim and small enough to fit in a backpack’s laptop compartment.


With all the traveling we do, taking care of one’s skin is downgraded to the bottom of priorities. An easy solution is a portable humidifier from Remax Life — it’s as small as a pen, and just needs a bottle of water to work its magic.

Last but not the least: a solar-powered backpack that’s surprisingly designed well and is stylish! Having a lot of compartments and extra room is always a plus for creators for our tools and knicknacks.
