Update (21/Apr/2014): Singapore will NOT be getting the CP-V3A Portable Charger. Not sure what is the reason. At the moment, this is the latest info.
Update 2 (21?Apr/2014): Sony clarify that they might bundle the CP-V3A Portable Charger with another product.
Sony introduces CP-V3A USB Portable Charger in Singapore. It has a 3000mAh capacity with 1.5A output and it comes in vibrant colors. There is no pricing yet but it is available in April. I find it strange. If you read the Press Release below, it says available in April and yet there is no pricing. I am going to check it out with them. BTW, I think it should come with a 2.0A output instead of 1.5A unless the price justifies it.

Containing a Sony-made Lithium ion battery, the new charger utilises Sony’s Hybrid-Gel Technology, allowing it to retain more than 90 per cent of its capacity at 1,000 charges. With a high output of 1.5A for a speedy boost, the CP-V3A USB Portable Charger is ready-to-use straight out of its packaging, so even if you find yourself outdoor with a dying device, emergency power is immediately available upon purchase with the help of a micro-USB cable that comes with the Portable Charger.
