Seems to be R429:

Edit: still not such a bad price as IC had it for R649 and hifi corp for R599

Yeah that’s it, 289 was a steal then.

It’s back to 499 now. Superfly 20000mah with power delivery.

I think people don’t buy it because they mixed the 6000mah and 20000mah pictures of it.
Have you tested the capacity?

Because the Dixon battery bank with quick charging that I bought a while back had less than half the rated capacity, otherwise it worked great.

It’s common knowledge that they overstate it with the 5v vs 3.7v loophole. Personally it doesn’t bother me as I want the PD capability from it.

I did not check the others, but the usb one can handle 250 kw, according to Incredible!

Lol must be a mistake, the blue one with extension I added to my post states 16W, this sounds about right, the same model grey one they state 0W lol

Those look very cool, never heard of them before but I can see it'll look a lot neater than a conventional multiplug which also aren't so cheap these days.

Yeah landed cost is R4706 which is not bad for a Samsung but I find them to be very overpriced in general.

You can get an adata with similar spec locally for R4347 and this has a local warranty obviously.
The Samsung has better performance though.

You compared the wrong adata, it is the 8100 not 8200.

Also, in real life application you won't see the difference.
I upgraded from a Kingston nvme to a (few 100 mb/s) faster Transcend and cant even see the difference.

Awesome, thanks.

What’s the difference between the different colours?

Any recommendations for a good game pad that works and fits to an iPad?

Bought a few at Builders Warehouse a few weeks back - they were going for R99 each.

LOL at comparing Transcend to Kingston. Of course you can't see the difference... Transcend is decent, don't get me wrong, but they are not on the same level as Kingston.

Well no, there are different product ranges and generations, depends what you are comparing.
