Tangle-free & Bacteria Removal Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner by Panasonic Malaysia

Parents with kids and fur-kids can attest to the challenges of keeping living spaces clean especially as more time are spent indoors. Thanks to Panasonic’s introduction of its Tangle-Free Hair Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner (MC-SB85), parents can now have that extra peace of mind knowing that hair-free floors and dust-free carpets are just a button away. Available in three variants, Panasonic’s brand-new vacuum cleaner is the ultimate cleaning tool for households with young kids and pets.
“Children and pets undoubtedly make households livelier, but it can also bring about additional worry as to whether the environment is clean and hygienic enough for them. At Panasonic, we understand parents are concerned if they are providing the best care for their families, which is why we have designed a tool that not only ensures cleanliness but makes the cleaning process seamless. Parents will never look at chores the same way again when they see how efficient and fuss-free our new range of vacuum cleaners are,” said Keisuke Nishida, Deputy Managing Director of Panasonic Malaysia.

Hair is the biggest issue when it comes to cleaning – not only are they on floors, carpets and sofas, they jam the cleaning heads of the vacuum cleaners and clog filters which affects the suction power. This common problem is a familiar situation in a lot of households especially those with pets. To combat this issue, Panasonic developed a new technology, designed in a conical-shape brush, to collect and transfer hair to the thinner centre of the vacuum head before it goes sucks in completely. This unique patented technology makes the tangle-free power nozzle feature exclusive to the brand and helps users save more time and effort when cleaning the nozzle.
The tangle-free power nozzle is also coated with an ion plate that does double the job of removing bacteria from the floor for added hygiene. This feature works well in cleaning up after pets who roam freely indoors and outdoors as the ion plate neutralises microbes transported from outside the house. Fur parents with toddlers can be rest assured that their babies are crawling on cleaner floors with just a simple vacuum.
MC-SB85 slant

Panasonic’s new cordless stick vacuum cleaner additionally keeps the living spaces dust-free with a special in-built house dust sensor that automatically detects and adjusts the suction power according to the amount of dust detected. This efficient use of energy extends the running time of the vacuum cleaner and reduces the noise to a manageable level if a higher suction power is not needed. Upon suction, dust and dirt flow through a stainless guard anti-clog filter system that traps it for easy cleaning after.

Pilot Duo with a Military Look by Laco

To kick off the model year, Red Army Watches Malaysia aims to bring in the German timepiece brand Laco two new pilot watches in a trendy military look. The two limited editions "Augsburg Oliv 39" and "Aachen Oliv 39" are each limited to 250 pieces and present the classic typography of the famous observation watches with their dials in a refined shade. The authentic vintage charm is underlined by the bronze-colored case and the retro-look strap.

For over 100 years, pilot watches have been flying high. As one of the most successful watch types ever, it owes its great popularity to the unmistakable design and functionality it demonstrates in all its elements. The characteristic instrument look of the dial is not a design gimmick, but results from its history as a technical tool in the cockpit, which was used for positioning and navigation as well as for many flight-specific calculations. Laco stands for pilot watches like hardly any other brand and presents not only authentic replicas of the historical originals, but also modern interpretations. To this day, these timepieces radiate an elemental spirit of adventure and inspire explorers and individualists with an active lifestyle.
With the two new watches, each limited to 250 pieces, Laco is following up on the success of the "Oliv 42" models launched last year, which sold out in a very short time. By reducing the case size by 3 mm to 39 mm, the watches have a much slimmer appearance and can also be worn on narrower wrists. The stainless steel case is covered with a bronze-colored PVD coating, which emphasizes the "used look" character. The warm hue harmonizes expressively with the olive green dial. Inspired by military units and special commandos, the natural tone provides a fitting background for the strikingly matter-of-fact typography. The numerals, indexes and hands are coated with the luminous Superluminova "Old Radium", which has a brownish vintage tone during the day, but glows intensely green in the dark.
Precise drive is provided by the high-quality automatic movement Laco 21, which can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. It is based on the proven Miyota 821A caliber and offers a power reserve of 42 hours, as well as a stop-second function, which allows precise setting of the time. Optionally, Laco also offers the option of upgrading to the Laco 31 caliber. This upgrade offers an increased power reserve of over 60 hours, as well as thermally blued screws as an additional visual highlight. The distinctive "field watch" look is complemented by rugged vintage-look leather straps. As a tribute to the history of the pilot watch, they are equipped with decorative rivets, which, like the buckle, once again pick up the color tone of the case.

6 Reasons You Should Buy Car Extended Warranty

A car purchase can be a significant life event for anyone. Purchasing a car is no small investment. Therefore, it is essential to protect a vehicle, whether it is for yourself or your children. Most car owners know the term "extended warranty." But what does it mean for the owner? Does it make sense to pay for a car extended warranty on top of the bumper-to-bumper manufacturer's warranty? In the first place, a car extended warranty will stabilize costs associated with repairs, mechanical breakdowns, and you'll even be covered for unexpected emergencies. It is similar to purchasing life insurance for your car when purchasing an extended warranty. Here are six reasons why extended warranties make sense in the long run.
Extending The Manufacturer's Warranty To Cover Parts And Repairs

There can be a high cost of repairs on luxury vehicles such as Lexus, Bentley, Maserati, Land Rover, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Porsche. Even after your manufacturer's original warranty expires, significant repairs can be expensive. After just one major repair, you may be able to save a great deal of money with a car extended warranty. A factory warranty may cover only a limited number of repairs, incredibly if limited. You will save money in the long run by purchasing a car extended warranty, and you will know what is covered.

Peace Of Mind

Extended warranties are ideal for vehicle owners who would like the peace of mind while avoiding high repair costs if something goes wrong. You can't put a price on worry-free peace of mind. Fincrew extended warranty service contracts provide affordable rates and customized terms to help you drive with confidence.
