Charging cables, whether you’re a lightning or micro USB kinda person, are an essential element in the device ecosystem that is 2018. We use them to charge our phones, tablets, headphones, keyboards, and even our TV remotes. We use them to transfer documents, photos, and music between those devices and our laptops. Who knows what’s next. But the standard cables leave a lot to be desired, and the Charby Sense Charging Cables make a nice overall life upgrade.
For one thing, these cables shut off the minute your device is fully charged to stop wasting electricity and avoid overheating. That’s one point for the environment (pats self on back). These four-foot cables are also equipped with smart technology and LED indicators that let you know when power is flowing, and if it’s happening at a slower rate than normal. If a laptop USB port or an older outlet is throttling the charge, press the boost button, and Charby Sense will double your charging speed. Read more…
Last year’s Google Pixel 2 series disappointed certain consumers due to its lack of wireless charging but if the new Android P Beta 2 is anything to go by, it appears Google may finally be giving its customers what they want with the new Pixel 3 line.
HTC has revealed why it chose to skip wireless charging with the HTC U12+. After previously explaining its eyebrow-raising name choice for its latest flagship, the Taiwan-based company has now gone on to reveal the thought process behind yet another controversial decision, the omission of wireless charging in its latest flagship.
The FCC has raised the limits of its wireless charging gear specifications significantly, so the compliant ones can now be much more powerful than before. The 5W coil restriction is now upped to the whopping 15W, as there are already chargers on the market with this output, like Belkin’s Boost Up line you see in the video above.
There’s been a dearth of quality battery cases for the iPhone X so far, not least because most of the popular ones on Amazon are made by obscure companies with conflicting reviews about their wares. Case in point are the Amazon’s Choice wrappers that offer whopping battery capacities on paper, but are with dubious design, and some even charge the phone itself wirelessly, wasting a terrible amount of energy in the process.
Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat may look svelte and top up everything with the fruit logo in sight, but it’s coming much later than its announcement, so what’s a cord-cutter to do when they get their new iPhone 8, Plus or X? Alternatively, Samsung’s new convertible charger may be the bee’s knees, but there is nothing it can do that a half-priced charger can’t.
RAVPower is a name you might not be familiar with, but this mobile accessory manufacturer has plenty of 5-star reviews on Amazon.com and has garnered the distinction of “Amazon’s Choice” for many of its chargers, cables, and power banks. In this review, we’ll introduce you to three of the company’s devices: two charging pads and a wireless charging power bank, all from the HyperAir wireless charging series. This product line focuses on charging both iPhone and Android devices as fast as wirelessly possible, and we’re itching to see if these chargers live up to the hype.
