One of the lesser-known challenges of electricity supply is the transportation of it from the generation sources to our homes. While it is common for many large countries to have electricity transported through huge transmission towers and cables that stretch for kilometres, in Singapore, most of our cables are underground hidden away from sight.
When it comes to switching from SP Services to iSwitch, you get to enjoy a whole host of benefits that of course begins with saving on your monthly electric bill.

But can it get even better?
Whether you are lazing on the couch with your handphone or sitting in a cafe with a laptop, you are probably relying on wifi for your internet connection to surf the web. Wifi today has completely changed our lives, where half the time everyone is on their phones browsing away and data usage bills are getting higher with each passing month!
While Wifi is definitely shiok and makes us look forward to doing work or watching Youtube videos at our favorite Starbucks outlet, it actually has some limitations that we can probably all agree on.
Living in Singapore probably means tolerating the feeling of heat and sweat every single day! You might be thinking ‘Of course la! The weather is so hot, every day above 32 degrees, how not to feel hot and sticky?’ that is true but you are only partially right.
A huge part of feeling hot and sweating actually comes from humidity (moisture in the air). The more humid the weather is, the greater the feeling of heat that you will experience. Good news though, a research team from the National University of Singapore led by Assistant Professor Tan Swee Ching, has invented a hydrogel that can absorb moisture at least 8x better versus commercial dehumidifiers.
Crazy Energy Uses You Probably Haven’t Realised!
It’s 2018 and most of us today probably have heard of cryptocurrencies and especially bitcoin. From its peak price of around $14,000 a coin to the underlying blockchain technology behind it, the world is buzzing with excitement on how it’s adoption could change the world as we know it!
Smart Walls Are Coming
Sit back and gear up! While the world is becoming increasingly more connected with the internet being connected to almost every appliance we have from our phones to even the fridge and door-bells, nothing could be more exciting than the latest innovation in smart wall technology that could very well change the way we live at home forever.
