This Device Can Charge Four Different Camera Batteries at the Same Time

Very rarely does a photographer only have one type of battery these days. From your camera’s battery, to rechargeable AAs, to drone batteries, it can be cumbersome to try and carry a charger for each when traveling. Bronine wants to change that with the Volkit.

The Volkit is a free voltage charging device with modular charging bricks that work with an assortment of brands and batteries. Bronine calls the Volkit an “AI charger” because it is able to analyze the battery that is attached to it and automatically adjust the correct voltage to charge it between 1 and 20 volts. Depending on the model, the Volkit can charge four of any combination of supported batteries at the same time while managing the voltage output to each individually. Bronine says that it has been working on the technology that allows the device to accurately determine the correct voltage automatically since 2017

Comcast Is Imposing Data Caps and Will Charge Customers Who Exceed Them

Figuring out how to work from home is challenging. It’s hard enough figuring out how to balance all of the things that go into work, and a family, and everything else that occupies our lives. Add to that a pandemic, and the fact that we’re now doing all of those things from home, and it can quickly get overwhelming.

One of the saving graces has been that many companies recognized the challenges people faced, and did what they could–within their own power–to alleviate those challenges where they could. For example, Zoom has removed the 40-minute time limit on free meetings for Thanksgiving. Other technology companies made versions of their software available for free.

Even Comcast, the country’s largest cable provider, had previously suspended data caps back in March. That was helpful considering how many of us were working from home while-;in many cases-;also trying to help children stay connected to

Charge your smartphone via T-shirt soon without electric shock : The Tribune India

London, November 7

Imagine if you can charge your smartphone via the T-shirt you are wearing without any electric shock. Scientists have found a way to generate electricity from nylon, raising hopes that the clothes on our backs will become an important source of energy.

These smart clothes will also monitor our health through miniaturised sensors and charge devices without any external power source.

This discovery – a collaboration between the University of Bath, the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Germany and the University of Coimbra in Portugal – is based on breakthrough work on solution-processed ‘piezoelectric’ nylons led by professor Kamal Asadi from the Department of Physics at Bath and his student Saleem Anwar.

Piezoelectricity describes the phenomenon where mechanical energy is transformed into electric energy.

To put it simply, when you tap on or distort a piezoelectric material, it generates a charge.

How gentle body movement will charge your mobile phone — ScienceDaily

Researchers have found a way to produce nylon fibres that are smart enough to produce electricity from simple body movement, paving the way for smart clothes that will monitor our health through miniaturised sensors and charge our devices without any external power source.

This discovery — a collaboration between the University of Bath, the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Germany and the University of Coimbra in Portugal — is based on breakthrough work on solution-processed piezoelectric nylons led by Professor Kamal Asadi from the Department of Physics at Bath and his former PhD student Saleem Anwar.

Piezoelectricity describes the phenomenon where mechanical energy is transformed into electric energy. To put it simply, when you tap on or distort a piezoelectric material, it generates a charge. Add a circuit and the charge can be taken away, stored in a capacitor for instance and then put to use — for

Space Force orbital warfare unit now in charge of X-37B space plane

  • Members of the newly established Space Force unit known as Delta 9 are now in charge of the X-37B unmanned spacecraft.
  • Delta 9’s Detachment 1 oversees operations of the X-37B, which is “designed to demonstrate technologies for a reliable, reusable, unmanned space test platform,” according to the unit.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

The US Space Force has created a unit dedicated solely to orbital warfare — and it includes the secret experimental X-37B space plane.

Space Force members overseeing the unmanned spacecraft are part of the newly established mission delta unit known as Delta 9, according to the service. The Drive was first to point out that the X-37B, previously under the purview of the Air Force, has found a new home.

Earlier this year, in October, Huawei launched its Mate 40 Series flagship. Now, they have officially launched a mid-range smartphone called Huawei Nova 8 SE. In line with what has been leaked so far, one of the models of the Nova 8 Series smartphone has brought many improvements that are better than its predecessor. Starting from the screen, processor, to the fast-charging system.

As rumored, Huawei has introduced two different chipsets in Nova 8 SE. The first is powered by a Dimensity 720 processor. Meanwhile, the second model relies on the Dimensity 800U as used by the Nova 7 SE Vitality Edition. Although different, the two chipsets belonging to MediaTek both support 5G connectivity by being built on a 7nm process. But of course, the Dimensity 800U is more powerful, which has a clock speed of up to 2.4GHz and has 5G + 5G dual SIM

Scientists at Swansea University have developed a very sensitive method to detect the tiny signatures of so called ‘charge traps’ in organic semiconductors.


The research, published in Nature Communications and supported by the Welsh Government through the European Regional Development Fund, may change views about what limits the performance of organic solar cells, photodetectors and OLEDs.

Organic semiconductors are materials mainly made of carbon and hydrogen which can be flexible, low weight and colorful.

They are the key components in OLED displays, solar cells and photodetectors that can distinguish different colors and even mimic the rods and cones of the human eye.

The efficiency of organic solar cells to convert sunlight to electricity has recently reached 18 % and the race is on to really understand the fundamentals of how
