Hello,I am sure that you, like me, have seen some tiny external batteries advertising 20,000 mah. Now, if you consider our smallest external battery is around 21000 mah, you’d have to wonder how a smaller sized battery can offer nearly the same mah as the larger batteries and why we don't just make ours smaller...In a word. It can’t.There are a lot of factors that create this illusion

We have been punting the fact that we sell Genuine Cables for years now, and we do. But we wanted to put some competitor's selling "Genuine" cables to the test to make sure that we are a cut above the rest. So we got our hands an a "Genuine" Surface cable from a seller on ebay. Sure enough when we cut the cable this is what we found:Four individual wires. Unlike the genuine Microsoft adapters.

Hi All,...so I was on the plane coming back from my trip, happily plugging in one of our All-in-one adapter by Lind (the professional version) so I could recharge my Macbook Pro and iPhone all at the same time, when I noticed the passenger next to me pulling out his Macbook Pro too. I happened to notice that when he plugged his in though, all it could do was keep cycling from full screen brightness

I get a lot of questions from people asking if they can run their Surface Pro or MacBooks from a battery that has USB only output, so I thought I’d blog about it again.Demystifying USB only Batteries vs High Power Port Batteries:There are primarily only two types of batteries on the market: Smaller batteries and larger batteries. Smaller batteries typically only have a USB port (the

Hello, As we approach summer and the weather makes us want to spend more time outdoors, most of us will have more need for alternative power sources for your devices. I myself will be taking a short working break, and the just the idea of being stuck up in the air in a flying metal tube for hours on end without my devices powered up the entire time is already giving me electronic withdrawals!

Hello,We have customers using our batteries with the Surface Book i7 without problems.We recommend you still use at 12v setting which we set too (since our batteries will supply more amps as needed then Microsoft's own adapter, other battery sellers call this "auto adjust"), but if you are high CPU user and find it not enough, the16v setting on our battery will work too.
