Lazada Singapore is running The Great Singapore Sale 2018, and like all Lazada sale, there are Surprise Boxes. But instead of offering the Surprise Boxes within a short period, the boxes are spread across the entire 2-month sale period, focusing on specific product category every week. From 11 to 15 July, it is electronics fair, one of the most popular categories, because Singapore loves gadgets. Besides S$29 Surprise Boxes, Lazada also has up to $150 Shakin’ Vouchers for you to collect from the app, and over 300 Flash Deals.
In the previous Memory World surprise box I posted, the items caused so much disdain that Lazada voluntarily refunded the purchase to customers. Most of the complaints revolved around the box content that are old stocks used for free gifts, like “brand X” bag sewed with electronics “brand Y” name.
This time, Lazada made sure the box items are proper retail items and the total street value (not retail price) is at least S$100. After receiving the Lazada X Leapfrog IT Accessories Surprise Box, I did an online search to find the market prices then added them up together. Indeed, it is over S$100.
Leapfroglobal (not to be confused with U.S. brand LeapFrog that makes educational toys) is a Singapore brand who designs and manufactures value-for-money IT products, like earphones, speakers, computer mice, gaming accessories, to name a few. Their house brands include SonicGear, Armaggeddon, Alcatroz, Audiobox. This surprise box contains products from 3 of the brands. There are a total of 7 items in the box, but I cannot reveal all of them, so I picked those with higher values and disclose them here.
SonicGear Pandora Neon 300 (street price S$27.90)
It’s a portable speaker with clock alarm function and microSD card, supports Bluetooth and AUX-IN for audio playback. With built-in mic, it supports call answer from your smartphone. 1800 mAh rechargeable battery delivers 6 hours music.
The speaker is really cute with a light silicone coating and rounded corners, very child friendly. The soft silicone strap allows easy transport. The LCD display is bright and I like that it’s white-lit on black background instead of the other way round.
Sound quality is a surprise! When I tried turning on for the first time, the FM radio blasted loudly without distortion (except for the fuzzy reception, that is). I tested connecting via Bluetooth to smartphone and the sound is clear, though the bass is rather unexciting despite having a passive bass radiator at the back.
I recommend this speaker, even if you cannot get hold of the Surprise Box, go get one yourself. The alarm can be set to play beep tones or radio, so that’s useful for morning alarm.
Armaggeddon Aegis Artic AG17M Gaming Mouse Mat (street price S$19.90)
Even if you are not a gamer, this premium mouse mat should be a welcome to any computer user. The Aegis series of Armaggeddon mousemats feature the roughest glide, with the best control. The improved tracking due to the textured surface as well as a constant level of friction, allows for greater control. This is the 17-inch medium 3mm thickness.
SonicGear MK-3 Pink microphone (street price S$12.90)
If you want to do vlogs, do it in style! This mini microphone looks so kawaii, and is designed for smartphones with 3.5mm plug.
Comes with a mini mic stand too.
Alcatroz Lithium L2 Wireless Mouse (1600 CPI) S$12.90
Since the Surprise Box comes with a mouse mat, you would need a new mouse too, right? Here it is!!! This mouse comes with 4 buttons and adjustible CPI so that you can toggle on-the-fly when you need to be more accurate in your mouse movements.
The mouse runs on wireless 2.4GHz with a USB receiver and rechargeable 300mAh battery so you don’t waste money buying batteries.
Lazada GSS 2018 Electronics Fair Starts 11 July
So what do you think of the Lazada X Leapfrog IT Accessories Surprise Box? I thought it has an amazing variety of items to cater to every consumer. There are so many separate items, I’m sure there is something for you and your family and friends.
I cannot say whether all the Surprise Boxes contain the exact items, but I believe they should contain similar categories, that is, speakers, gaming, mouse, earphones, etc. Just visit the Leapfroglobal website to see the products they have.
Have a great time shopping at Lazada! You’ll be surprised they actually sell some stuff cheaper than AliExpress and Taobao!
Update: The Lazada X Leapfrog Surprise Box will be available from 12 July at 1pm.
