If your phone is dead midday, you’ll be stuck by a charger for quite a while before it’s ready to go for a few more hours. But Quick Charge changed that, allowing devices to ... Read More »
Micro USB cables are a hassle. While many don’t think much of it, you have to check if you’re inserting the cable the right way every time you plug your phone in. If you’re not looking attentively (and let’s be fair, both sides look almost identical), you’re shoving a round peg into a square hole. ... Read More »
