Wait why? It's literally just a wireless charger and the phone just has a cool standby Google Assistant mode. Did they lock it down to just this charger? That'd be kinda dumb if they did. Here's a less than 20 dollar wireless charging stand and there's a ton of other options too. Maybe they don't look as cool but they're less than a quarter of the price.

Edit: Ok it'll work with any Qi charger. Don't buy the Google charger then. The phone is already enough of a rip-off compared with the competition. No reason to throw a way way way overpriced Qi charger into your shopping cart.

u/port53 · 129 pointsr/todayilearned

Or buy this and not have to worry about fucking it up.

u/Beaver420 · 78 pointsr/h3h3productions

You can buy blank SIM cards. Then using social engineering you would call the cell provider and convince them to activate the sim card for your targets number. Once activated you put the sim in your phone and now you have access to any calls/texts they receive.

u/bluaki · 35 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I feel like I'm posting about USB too much here, but people keep asking because it's easy to get confused about it. I just copied the table I made a while ago in a comment and added FAQs and notes for outside the US.

I hope this answers what people are really looking for better than the other threads.

Do you have some specific need I didn't answer? Have a USB-C charger you're curious about that isn't listed? Ask in a comment. Just keep in mind that (other than the iPad one) USB-A chargers won't give you good speeds. This includes the chargers bundled with even the most recent phones by Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG, and HTC.

I'll use this comment to note some USB-C chargers I'm aware of but don't recommend:


Charging speeds vary

These chargers can give the Switch great speeds sometimes, but usually they're closer to just "okay". It seems to be random every time you plug it in. If the Switch is completely turned off (not just in sleep) when you plug it in, you'll almost always get those "great" speeds for as long as you keep it plugged in even after turning the Switch back on and playing. This happens because Nintendo's implementation of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) is very buggy. They're a hassle to use right for now, so I don't recommend them, especially since there are better alternatives now.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Anker PowerPort+ 5|$39.99|Amazon|Use the USB-C port. It also offers 4 USB-A ports. No USB cables included.
RAVPower 26800mAh USB-PD battery|$79.99|Amazon|
UGREEN 30W USB-PD charger|$17.99|Amazon|No cable included.


Safety issues

These don't damage the Switch, but they can damage other USB-C cables and devices, especially if you plug them in to something that doesn't make sense, like another charger. If you know how to use them right and you're careful, you won't damage anything, but why risk it? Get something else.

CHOETECH USB C 15W charger|Amazon|
Anker PowerPort+ 1 USB-C QC3.0|Amazon|Any USB-C port that offers QC3.0 has known issues


Great but expensive

If you have a USB-C laptop, feel free to get one of these, but otherwise don't bother. Plenty of chargers in my OP work just as well with Switch and are much cheaper.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Google 60W USB-C charger|$59.99|Google|Bundled with Chromebook Pixel 2, great for laptops, very long 12ft cable
Apple 61W USB-C charger|$69|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with 2016 13" MacBook Pro, no cable included when bought on its own. The 15-inch model's 87W charger is probably great too.
Apple 29W USB-C charger|$49|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with non-Pro MacBooks, no cable included when bought on its own. Poor speeds with most other non-Apple devices.
Innergie 45W USB-C charger|$59.99|Amazon|Works with the dock, great with laptops and phones too.


Unconfirmed speeds (and expensive)

These chargers are also too expensive to recommend. They probably work great, but I haven't seen any reports of people actually trying any of them. They all probably work with the dock too. If anybody has one of these, please tell me if it works with the dock.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
Dell 45W charger|$49.99|Dell|Included with some Dell laptops.
Dell 45W Plus|$59.99|Dell|Use the USB-C cable. There's also a USB-A port for charging other devices.
Dell 65W charger|$69.99|Amazon|Included with some Dell laptops.

u/LEGITIMATE_SOURCE · 33 pointsr/gifs

Or buy a folding solar charger and a battery pack because they're more practical unless you live in the most cloudy of places.



u/your_fish_monger · 26 pointsr/consulting

Get a normal carry on bag. Buy a portable charger that you can use wherever you want. The end.

u/productfred · 23 pointsr/Nexus6P

Aukey is a trustworthy brand, similar to Anker. I use their chargers and their 10000 mah aluminum QC2.0 battery (though obviously it doesn't do QC2.0 on the 6P). I'm waiting for a discount on this (below), since my philosophy is that if you're charging your phone with an external battery, chances are your battery is low. Which means you need a quick charge.


u/jooxii · 16 pointsr/iphone

$50 is more than enough for a wireless charger; it shouldn't cost that much.

I like this one. It's from Anker so it's quality, and it is wireless fast charge capable. When Apple updates the X to support fast charging, you are covered:


There is also a cheaper version without the fast charging:


u/rumilb · 13 pointsr/showerbeer

nah i got one of these

easy to insert and remove my device, and i also get to listen to my podcasts.

u/Tagzation · 13 pointsr/iphone

I recommend this one from Anker. I ordered 3 before my 8 arrived and I've been loving it.

u/Billy1121 · 13 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Im confused, did she get drunk alone at a sushi bar with no way home?

If you have a purse buy this: https://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerCore-20000mAh-Qualcomm-Recharging/dp/B01N0X3NL5

It can charge a phone like 4 times! So handy. There are smallwr lighter models too

u/Gallo12orGallo24 · 12 pointsr/iphone

I've always liked Anker products and they have one on Amazon Anker Wireless Charger Charging Pad for iPhone 8 / 8 Plus, iPhone X, Nexus 5 / 6 / 7, and Other Devices, Provides Fast-Charging for Galaxy S8/ S8+/ S7 / S7 edge / S6 edge+, and Note 5 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KJL4XNY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_RoUVzb1EFWSDQ

u/Broad_Imagination · 12 pointsr/oculus

Is this for VR? I use a suspended cable management system like this one:


Coupled with one of these belt clips:


This solution has eliminated all my cable hassles entirely. The overhead system keeps the cable off the floor and the belt clip keeps the cable from pulling on your head when/if it gets bound. Works great!

u/tec_geek · 12 pointsr/iphone

So far the mophie or the Belkin wireless charger is certified or recommended (thus, the higher pricing?) .

But the other Qi wireless charger are so far so good.

This is the one I’m using and it’s great so far.
iPhone X Wireless Charger, Seneo Standard Qi Wireless Charger(No AC Adapter) for iPhone X 8 8 Plus, Fast Wireless Charger Pad Stand for Samsung Galaxy Note 8/5 S8/S8 Plus S7/S7 Edge S6 Edge Plus

EDIT: I used to get the flat wireless charging but changed over to the stand like the one in the link, cause it allows me to charge and use my phone, at the same unlocking via Face ID.

u/crunchytacooo · 12 pointsr/oneplus

i really like the diztronic tpu case

a couple friends (who don't know what the OPO looks like) assumed my phone was caseless when they first saw it, its design is that good


u/spacewolfy · 10 pointsr/JapanTravel

Just get a pocket wifi. My wife and I had one for 11 days when we were there and even forgot to drop it in the mail before security. Had to express post it back afterwards but they didn't even charge us any fees.

We were able to use both phones, a tablet in the evenings and use the wireless to transfer photos from our camera to our phones seamlessly. If I remember correctly it only cost us 70$ CAD. We used Japan-wireless and Softbank.

Coverage and speeds were excellent. I could even stream Plex from my home server in Canada to our tablet at bedtime. TV there SUCKS.

The only viable counter is having another device to charge but keeping a pocket wifi charged is way simpler than dealing with 2-3 plans for T-Mobile and/or SIM swapping.

Get an Anker 5 port charging brick. It was invaluable for our trip.

u/robeschi · 10 pointsr/ipad

I mostly use the Apple Pencil with Notability or LiquidText. I use Goodnotes a little. Some of my professors use Google Drive, so I need to use those apps from time to time. I also like Outlook for email, iBooks and Kindle Reader for different texts. Duet Display turns my iPad into a secondary screen for my MacBook Pro. I use Scanner Pro to turn all my syllabi and other handouts into PDFs. iStudiez Pro helps keep my schedule in order, and Quizlet helps me study. I use Affinity Photo for processing my Nikon RAW files ( I let my Adobe CC subscription lapse, I just don't find myself using my dSLR that much lately.) I also use a MIDI keyboard with Garage Band and Pro Metronome for piano practice when I don't have access to a real piano/piano lab/practice room.

I keep games and other entertainment apps off the iPad since I'm trying to study and don't want to make it any easier for me to goof off.

Case, Screen Protector, Apple Pencil sleeve, tether to keep my adapter on my cable, stand, keyboard, and holder for using my iPad as a second screen for my MacBook Pro. I also use Anker cables, charger port, and portable charger.

u/HerrBadger · 10 pointsr/iphone

I’ve bought 5 of these flat Anker ones, you have to put the middle of the phone on the pad, but I find that I never mis-position it. Got 3 at home, 1 at work and 1 at my fiancé’s work:


Never had an issue, been going strong for about 5 months.

u/emailrob · 10 pointsr/GooglePixel

I've been happy with the Ravpower one. It works with my Switch and rapid charges the Pixel 2 XL no problem. Takes a little while to charge, but they're all like that.


My house, as of yet, has not burned down.

u/beth6han · 9 pointsr/Dashcam

There are lots of dashcams now with parking mode by motion detection, they are not all very good at it though. One of the best I think is the Blackvue DR 3500 FHD dashcam. This is a tubular shaped, all black dashcam that makes for a very stealth installation so that there is little danger of it being noticed and perhaps stolen. This dashcam is recommended by the North American distributor of Blackvue and other quality dashcams as the very best for its motion detection function, and it is affordable.

The dashcam records in high definition 1080P resolution and will take an extended video storage card up to 126GB which means that it will hold over 40hrs of video before starting to loop and record over itself.

This dashcam will serve you well as far as reliability, video quality and dependability, however, you must be aware that there are limitations with any dashcam as to what they can see, since they are in a fixed position in your car.

The next thing you have to consider is how you are going to 'power it up' for a couple of days at a time, it certainly cannot run off your car battery for that long. There are several battery packs that are available but they must be hardwired to your fuse panel, and even then, they depend on you running the car for a period of time. Are you saying that your car is going to sit in the parking lot without moving for a couple of days?

If you don't want to hardwire the dashcam you could use a palm-sized portable power bank which should be good for a couple of days before needing to be recharged.

Here are some links to battery packs, power banks and hardwire kits.

Anker PowerCore Speed 20000mAh Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 & PowerIQ Portable Charger, with Quick Charge Recharging


A bunch on Amazon from trusted brands. I posted the largest Anker one with QC3 I saw with a quick glance.

u/pharmacist10 · 9 pointsr/Vive

I'm firmly on the side of yes, totally worth it (Vive Pro + wireless).

You do need a beefy CPU to handle it without any issues though -- what do you have? I have a 8700k@5ghz and have had zero issues with it in every game so far (including a heavily modified skyrimVR, and lightly modded Fallout 4 VR). Appearance and performance vs. wired has been the same for me.

The only other consideration is the stock battery only lasts about 1.5 hours. You can buy 3rd party, higher capacity batteries that last way longer. I use this one which lasts about 4 hours. It also fits the little belt clip that comes with the stock battery. You can use any battery like that just so long it is QC 3.0.

Even if you have a small play space, being able to move, turn and twist without the cable being in the way is just amazing. It seems like a small benefit, but it really drives immersion even further.

u/MatNomis · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I've looked it up in the past, I'll do it again. I'm 99% certain these two powerbanks are identical. The extra 100mah seems to be irrelevant, and just part of the naming more than anything else.

Anker PowerCore Speed 20000

Anker PowerCore 20100 Switch Edition

Note: I provided Amazon links for uniformity's sake. Right now, the Amazon price on the Switch edition is very expensive, at $150. I think it's usually $90-$100 at the brick and mortars (Best Buy, Target, etc..)

The non-sale prices are typically very similar (barring Amazon's really high price on the Switch-branded one), with the main difference is that the unbranded one includes a PD USB-C AC Adapter, which is very handy if you don't have an extra one. The Switch's AC adapter works beautifully, but depending on your setup, it may not be convenient to be taking that around (e.g. for me, I have mine more or less permanently plugged into my dock--it's a pain to move it around frequently). Charging these banks with a USB-A to USB-C cable and a standard USB3 port (even a power-boosted one) takes a very long time. Charging via a proper USB-C to USB-C cable and a sufficiently juicy PD-capable AC adapter speeds up charging dramatically.

(edit: reorganized my paragraphs for better flow; added sentence about the Switch's AC adapter)

u/pixie-army · 8 pointsr/bicycletouring

The EasyAcc or Anker battery packs would be much better. The 20K models can charge a smart phone like 6 times (charges my Galaxy S5 ~7 times), weigh less than a pound for 20K and below, have a built in flashlight, can charge like 4 devices at once, and you don't have to worry about replacing AA batteries, or have cheap cables / connections wrapped around elastic bands haha. And they take the same A/C power as your cell phone, so only need one charger for both.

And they cost like $30 - $40 for the 20K models. (example) Probably cheaper in the long run than stocking up (or replacing) rechargeables. Seems like a no brainer to me. OPs idea is fun, but it's kind of pointless with better options available.

u/rtwpsom2 · 8 pointsr/gaming

I bought three of these for a road trip with two of my sons and all their electronic distractions and have not been disappointed with them at all. I bought one of these for each of them and they charge up completely in less than 4-5 hours. We would drive for 6 hours a day, they would play on their kindles and the switch and charge them off these powerbanks. I'd charge them back up at the hotels at night and repeat the next day. They lasted surprisingly well for two weeks of hard use and are still working just fine.

u/GuyYouKnowFrmNowhere · 8 pointsr/GooglePixel

This is what I have It caused me no issues over a year of use on both Pixel 1 and Nexus 5X.

I've since upgraded to a car that has Android auto so I only keep it as a backup charger if someone else needs to charge quickly. So I couldn't tell you about its performance with the Pixel 2, but it should be very similar if not identical to the Pixel 1 experience.

u/TheJudgeOfThings · 8 pointsr/Nexus6P

This one is the most consistent, and works as advertised.

Does 3A + 2.4A

Nekteck 5.4A USB C Car Charger with Integrated Built-in USB-C 3.1 Cord For Apple MacBook 12 inch, Nokia N1, Nexus 5X 6P, OnePlus 2 and More, Black


Have done hours of testing now.

Max amps recorded to a 6P has been 2880mAh. So far this has been the best of the chargers I've tested for the Type-C phones.

I'm was originally concerned with its output consistency, but it does charge at rates comparable to the stock charger and throttles appropriately.

The cable itself is very thin compared to the official cable, but doesn't feel poorly made.

The device itself is very nice, with chamfered edges, and a chrome bevel. There is a tiny white LED as well. It's not annoying.

This definitely beats out the "red chargers", even the Vinsic that Benson reviewed. I have tested that one as well and it cannot handle two devices, nor can it match this chargers consistency.

u/Dadarian · 8 pointsr/Android

Might I consider a Qi charging station that lifts the phone to a standing position?

If I sat my phone like that on my desk, my face should be in pretty perfect view. I wouldn't mind buying 3 of these for the bedroom, computer desk, and office desk.

u/super_domestique · 8 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I tend to use devices like these to bulk power a cluster of Pis. Probably much easier (and quieter/cooler/more energy efficient) than adapting a PC power supply.

I have 5 Raspberry Pi 3s doing Docker cluster work with one of these connected to a UPS. Anker also do a 5 pack of short micro USB cables super cheap you can use to keep the cabling tidy.

u/elasa · 8 pointsr/nexus5x

u/rmh86 · 7 pointsr/iphone


I've used this one for a few years now (from 4 to 5S to 6). Love it's simplicity. The 6 pushes it to its widest so any bigger and I'd have to get a replacement.

u/thinkbeforeyousink · 7 pointsr/oneplus

I got this diztronic case from Amazon, I've dropped my phone quite a few times, even on concrete and it kept it completely safe and unscratched. It also doesn't add that much bulk to it

u/xlaxplaya · 7 pointsr/oneplus

I disagree with a lot of the Diztronic cons. Since when is ten bucks pricey? Also, "substantial" bulk? Really? It adds a couple millimeters to the front, but this is by design. And I definitely wouldn't consider it a "fingerprint magnet". In my experience, fingerprints only occur when my fingers are greasy from food, and they're easily wiped off.

u/Chiralmaera · 7 pointsr/cars

I use this one and its perfect. I don't even want an infotainment screen, just this.

u/iBobaFett · 7 pointsr/PSVR

I went with this after someone on the sub recommended it:


It's working really well for me. Sorta similar to your method, but the wires are all above my head rather than behind.

Edit: Looks like at the moment it's $25.99 + $5 shipping. When I ordered mine last week it had free Prime shipping. Still sold by the same seller, just dunno why they aren't offering the free shipping now.

u/RingoFreakingStarr · 7 pointsr/Vive

This smaller Anker one lasts me just as long as the one HTC shipped with the adapter; around 2.5 hours of continuous use.

This larger Anker one lasts me well over 4 hours. I haven't actually had it die on me yet; my longest playsession since getting the adapter has been around 4 and a half hours. It is decently bulky but it does fit into the included battery clip that the adapter comes with. It's just too large length wise so it will stick out the top of the clip. I wouldn't worry about it falling out of the clip though since it is a snug fit.

Also, this wall charger with QC 3.0 ports works with powering the wireless adapter. I've used it for when I'm doing sim stuff in the corner of my room. Having to plug in the wired Vive Pro cables for sim use is a real hassle so I just keep the wireless adapter on and plug the adapter into the wall charger. Works flawlessly.

u/wapwopwipwup · 7 pointsr/GalaxyNote8

All the cables I previously mentioned as well as the following chargers (except the Anker 26800 battery) are USB-IF certified.
This charger from Monoprice has 5 ports - 1 Type C, 3 Type A. The 3 Type A ports have a total maximum output of 5V 2.4A, or 12W. Each individual Type A port is also capable of that 12W, given you have nothing plugged into the rest of them. The Type C port is capable of 5, 9, 12, 15, 20V charging, all at 3A.

This charger from Monoprice has 2 ports - 1 Type C, 1 Type A. The Type A has an output of 5V 2.4A, or 12W. The Type C is capable of 5V and 9V at 3A, or 15V charging at 2.6A. I do not think it is capable of 12V charging, 12V is just not listed on the MP website nor on the charger itself.

This (last) charger from Monoprice is a car charger and has 2 ports - 1 Type C, 1 Type A. The Type A has an output of 5V 1A, or 5W. The Type C is capable of 5V and 9V charging at 3A, or 12V charging at 2.25A.

This battery from Anker has 1 Type C and 1 Type A. The Type C acts as both an input and output for the battery. The Type C, as an input, is capable of 5V 3A (15W), 9V 3A (27W), 15V 2A (30W), and 20V 1.5A (30W). As an output, it is capable of 5V 3A (15W), 9V 2.67A (24W), and 15V 1.6A (24W). The Type A is 5V 2A, or 10W. It comes with a 30W wall charger as well as a C-C (Type C to Type C) cable as well as a Type A to Micro B cable. The output capabilities of the charger are not listed, so I will assume they are the same as the input of the battery's Type C port. The C-C cable is definitely only 3A capable, as the battery cannot output anything higher than that, and most likely only USB 2.0 capable.

This battery from Anker is a bit special. It is not expressly USB-IF certified but may fall under the clause that if two products (from the same manufacturer) are near identical then only one needs to be certified. I do not think it does, as it features an extra Type A port and has over 30% more capacity than the other one, but I'm going to list it here anyway. This one has 1 Type C, again as an input and output, and 2 Type A ports. The Type A's are each 5V 3A (15W). The Type C port is 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 15V 2A, and 20V 1.25A capable as an output. As an input it's the same across the board, except it can charge at 1.5A at 20V. Comes with the same cables and charger as the other Anker battery.

This Nekteck charger has a captive 6ft Type C cable, and is capable of 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 15V/3A, 20V/2.25A charging.

This Nekteck charger has just 1 Type C port, and is capable of 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 12V 3A, 15V 3A, 20V 3.25A charging. To get that 20V 3.25A charging you MUST use a 5A capable cable, a 3A capable cable will clip it to 20V 3A. This charger comes with a 6ft C-C cable that is capable of 5A charging, but is probably USB 2.0.

This Nekteck car charger is the same as the Monoprice one I listed above, except this only outputs 5V 3A and 9V 3A, no 12V charging on this one. The Type A port is the same as the MP.

u/ConspicuousPineapple · 7 pointsr/Nexus6P

This one should charge as fast as your wall charger when using the USB-C port.

u/nicksvr4 · 7 pointsr/Nexus

You can charge it with USB-C, use the USB-C for 5V/3A charging, has QC 2.0 if needed, other ports, large capacity. Also has great reviews.

u/biscuits88 · 6 pointsr/PS4

Not the cable. The charger itself such as for Samsung phones or other quick chargers. Whatever is supplying the power is what can fry it. If your using any cable with your ps4 your fine. This is an example of a charger that you could use with your cable and fry the controller. https://www.amazon.ca/Charge-Anker-Charger-Compatible-PowerPort/dp/B016LO4UTA

u/jzorbino · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You're not going to find anything nearly as good as the official charger for the price. You can maybe find a USB C charger for $20-$25 that may or may not be strong enough to charge the Switch while playing.

As you say, you don't want to fry your Switch for using the wrong item, but you are risking doing so to save literally $5. Spend the $30, you won't regret it.

Also, I'm pretty sure the charger you linked won't work very well as you need one that is USB C to USB C. That one is USB A to USB C. It will charge, but will take forever and still lose battery if you try to play while plugged in. Here is an example of a C to C charger, and it is on sale for $23, but by the time you buy a C to C cord it will be about the same price:


u/anti09 · 6 pointsr/Android

>A wireless pad I'd have to find the exact spot, and precisely position it. And then make sure I can't bump it off. And I can't use it while it's charging either.

Look into an inexpensive dual-coil standing charger. It automatically places the phone in the proper spot.

u/maverickaod · 6 pointsr/Android

Finally something I can help with, lol.

I bought through Motorola and received the phone about a week later.

Nowinstock was useful for tracking when it was in stock at either Motorola or Google Play. I checked one day and grabbed it up.

Once you get the phone you'll need a cutter like this to trim your micro-sim from your S4 (same phone I had) to fit in the N6. I decided to go this route rather than get a nano from Verizon for a couple reasons.

  • If I screwed it up and it didn't cut right or it broke I'd have to go to Verizon anyway and deal with their customer service. $7 was worth the shot to me.
  • The Verizon store near here is famously bad at anything approaching customer service.
  • I hate Verizon but I love unlimited data so I'm stuck with them.

    I just checked my VZW account. It displays the following message:

    > Your SIM card is loaded on a device not recognized by Verizon Wireless. Some services & features may not perform as expected.

    I will say that I do not have any issues with VZW and my N6 other than the VoLTE thing I mentioned above. I'm expecting that once VZW releases their version or Google releases Android 5.1 I'll get the VoLTE and be good to go. Truthfully, I think I've wanted to use data while on a call once or twice since getting the phone so it's not been a big deal at all for me.

    All your VZW APN information is loaded from your SIM card anyway so LTE, 3G, 1x, everything works out of the box.

    One thing that bugs me about most Verizon devices is how locked down they are. I've had a Galaxy S, Galaxy Nexus, and an S4. Aside from the Galaxy Nexus everything has been a pain in the ass to customize. I don't know if you're into that sort of thing but I hate being locked down by a carrier. With the N6 I had an unlocked bootloader and a custom ROM on with no trouble at all.

    For longevity, I highly recommend the 64GB version. Since it doesn't have an SD slot you might be hurting for storage by the time another phone comes out that you want. That's not a huge issue for me either since I do not store many things on my phone. Music is streamed, photos are uploaded, and texts are of statistically insignificant size, even on 32GB.

    Any more questions, feel free to ask. I love talking about and working with this stuff.

I would recommend getting a grifgrips patch or something similar.

I personally keep my receiver in a waterproof bag, something like this: https://smile.amazon.com/Universal-Waterproof-JOTO-CellPhone-Samsung/dp/B00LBK7OSY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1519062800&sr=8-3&keywords=waterproof+phone+pouch.

Also, at least in my experience, when I am submerged in water, the receiver doesn't receive information from the transmitter very often, if at all. So I always make sure I have my meter, too.

u/silenced_no_more · 6 pointsr/running

I run in the rain, unless it’s heavy downpour that would create dangerous conditions or poor visibility. Caution and keeping my eyes on what’s in front of me is how I prevent slipping. I generally slow down a tad bit too. Having good shoes with tread that’s not worn too thin is also helpful.

Ziplock bags, the water proof phone cases they sell for vacations on amazon, or the arm bands that the phone goes inside are good waterproof options

So I was able to get a 20% off code and signed up through the website and have a tracking code. I have a few questions on how to properly sign up for T-Mobile:

  1. When I go on the promotion status site to check it, it says Tampa, FL for the location, but I'm in Dallas, TX. Will this be okay? It did take my phone number when I signed up and my email, and I printed out the confirmation page with tracking ID. Also, how long will it take for me to see the 20% discount for life on my bill?

  2. I'm switching over from Verizon and have an iPhone 6s Plus, and will be porting my number over. I want to go about this properly and need a SIM card. Can I purchase this Amazon prepaid SIM card and activate it on the T-Mobile One Postpaid account with my 20% off discount?: https://www.amazon.com/T-Mobile-Prepaid-Complete-SIM-Kit/dp/B00LPPHHFK/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 If not, where can I purchase a correct SIM card?

  3. How do I activate the SIM card once I get it and transfer my number? Do I need to call in or can it be done online?

  4. Can I also sign up for the "17SWITCHER" $150 gift card promo and stack the coupon? If so, do I just go on the T-Mobile Promotions site and enter that before or after I sign up? How long does it take to receive the card via mail?

    Thank you in advance!

I have had the Diztronic TPU case for five months now and I love it. Offers good protection and pulls out of my pocket easily.


u/Captain_Ho_Lee_Fuk · 6 pointsr/iphone

They make them, but not for big phones. Been looking for one. Probably going to go with a windshield one again, I used an older version when I had a Note and it worked great. Still use it with my 6+ and just plug the phone in to charge.

u/tmeuze · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I use a magnetic mount like this. Owing to the metal build of the phone, it stays put without even using the included plates, even with a case on (same as yours).
So easy to set and remove when getting in and out of the car.

u/CAYCE_VII · 6 pointsr/AndroidWear

I took this stand and filed out a slot large enough to fit the angled part of this cable to the left of the hole for the Apple Watch charger and used a magnetic car dock to keep my charger from moving around and allows me to easily switch between my G Watch R charger and my Urbane charger.

I'll post more pictures after I get home from work.

u/opposite_lock · 6 pointsr/USCR

Be prepared for very cold temperatures. Even if the weather doesn't look like it's going to be bad.

A blanket in case the sleeping bag isn't enough.

Sun glasses and sun screen. It may only get into the high 60's but you'll be in the sun all day.

Headphones to use with your phone to listen to the race broadcast via the internet/ Tune In app.

Look into getting something like this to recharge your phone so you're not searching for an outlet.

A cooler for food and beer, but mostly beer.

u/bward76 · 6 pointsr/teslamotors

I designed this holder for an induction charging pad. This interfaces with the flip over cover in the center console. I wanted this so that I could have the convenience of not plugging it in. Here's more pictures of it in place in the car (http://imgur.com/a/PdHKv)

This is the charger unit I used (due to its short profile).

I bought the Seneo charger. I’m hoping to get a flat one for my nightstand but I’m liking this one so far.

I have the Seneo wireless fast charging stand from Amazon... It supports fast charging with a fast charging plug... It only comes with stand and fast charging cord... No plug... Works wonderful with my S7 edge... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M0IL0QX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Z6ZozbWCG2KNG)

u/simplistic · 6 pointsr/iphone

Whatever charger you get, make sure it's at least 7.5W in order to fast charge your iPhone. Also, a quick charge power adapter that's at least 15W.

Here's what I highly recommended:

Absolutely, I've been using the same series of chargers that I used with my S8 and wirelessly fast charged my S8. Before the most recent G7 update (opr1.170623.032) it did not wirelessly fast charge. It does now!

You can get a used Concours 1000cc for 3k. Not a cool bike and won't keep up with your crotch rocket friends but has tons of storage and a great fairing.

Next step up is a Gen 1 Concours 1400, pre 2010. Try cycletrader and set a filter to concours and 2008-2010.

I tour a lot and I plan my routes well in advance. I use a program called TyreToTravel (google it) and create .gpx files and download them to my GPS, which does 'multipoint navigation', i.e it will follow a specific route, not just straightest/quickest between X and Y.

Also, I cut out atlas maps of states I will travel to and laminate them to fit in the map pouch of my tank bag. I face them front to back so both sides have info on them, if that makes sense. Phone as GPS is meh, better than nothing.

I also recommend having a cell phone battery charger, very handy. Can charge a cell phone 5x on a one charge of it.


u/_tranceState_ · 5 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

Haha you would think right! I had only 2 fans last year. It was June and it was hot as balls... for everyone else! I was a solid 30 degrees cooler in my own hoodie than anyone else around me. I kept them on at full blast at 1300 rpms(both fans were daisy chained) powered of a 2200 mAh battery pack also I had a small water reservoir in my camelbak that i can pump from my pocket to mist my back.

I had to leave the battery charging till the last minute though to make sure i had enough charge to last from dusk to dawn. This year I'm bringing two and rotating them out every other day.

I do not have these issues with my wireless charging. I bought a Chinese charging stand off Amazon for $19 and it works perfect. I don't have to move it around to get it to start charging. I can use it in portrait or landscape mode. It doesn't get hot either.

I've had it since I had the S7. I'll admit that I rarely have to use it with the S8 Plus. I take it off my charger at home at 8am and by 6pm I'm still at 70%. I only have to use it if I spend a lot of time in the basement here at work where I don't get a strong cell signal and that drains the battery super quick, even with wifi calling.

The case looks good, the buttons don't stick out and it's already survived a hard fall on the hardwood floor. I think I'm going to keep it. Love this phone and want to keep it pristine as long as I can.

u/bmf666 · 4 pointsr/GalaxyNote9

I use the Spigen Kuel A200 magnetic mount on my phone in the car. Like the Note7 and S7 Edge I had before my Note 9, this mount is capable of supporting the phone in my car through 99% of my driving with the exception of extreme bumps WITHOUT any additional magnetic material added to the case or phone. There is enough force from the magnets to the magnetic material already in the phone to support it. The mount does come with magnetic stickers (well, I guess ferrous stickers) to improve the magnetic force, but I find them unnecessary. Also these stickers interfere with wireless charging which I use a lot.


edit - I didn't go through lots of mounts or anything so I can't say if other magnetic mounts work well enough. This one worked on the first try back with my Note7 so I never had to try any others. Also, I use very thin TPU cases which will play a role. My case is: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FT86KVB/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/badillin · 4 pointsr/Vive

Anything that has like a spring that pulls back the line can work. ive seen people use those retractable lanyards or retractable dog leashes

Just a hook wouldnt work as the point is that the device "feeds you" cable when needed and takes it back when you dont.

I bought these:


Also, Here is a sketch of my play area, and you can see where i put the hooks.


Also if you get the DAS (which i strongly recommend) here is a couple of pics on how i setted up the cables on the headset itself (just make sure they come out the back)


And just in case you decide to get the ceiling cable management i posted, i found out that doubling or tripling the retractable hooks gave me more freedom of movement, basically i feel the cable pulling me way less with more than 1 hook, like so: https://i.imgur.com/3sATB80.jpg

Also, if you use the ceiling things, id recommend cutting a couple of "stoppers" out of cardboard, these helped me A LOT because from time to time the hooks would join up, or change places and make it unconfortable, these "limits" fixed that by limiting where the hook movements.


u/pac_man2k5 · 4 pointsr/skyrimvr

It's difficult to say right, because the thing about skyrim and modding is that everything can be tuned to personal taste.

So what I would say, is that I would personally really would look into "Natural Locomotion" on Steam and the VR QuickBelt tool https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/16467.

They are tricky to setup but definetely worth it once you get it just right. Natural locomotion worked really well once I got it to be done by using the trackpad instead of the grip buttons.

Also, not technically a game mod, but if you can setup the following correctly, then it adds A LOT to immersion as you don't worry anymore about that pesky cable on the floor and you can rotate physically:


I'm also planning on setting up voice attack to press Z on shouting a phrase, like if I shout "Fuck" it'll shout one word by holding z for half a second, "Fuck you" would shout two words and "Fuck off" would shout all three.

So got off on a tangent, but I suppose you could say those are technically "modifications."

As for other mods, I would highly suggest, as tedious as it sounds, to search on nexus for mods by category, then sorting by endorsement, and really looking as to what they add and whether or not that entices you, and then grab it!


  1. Ordinator - So many ways now open up as to how you can approach the game
  2. Imperious - Adds more gametime just by the mere fact that each race now can "feel" different and you can do a playthrough on each!
  3. Apocalypse - Again, adds many ways in which you can approach playing the game, which is always a good thing

The Anker 20000 QC 3.0 can run the wireless for about 5 hours and fits in the waistband holder (its taller but similar in width and thickness).

Just remember the middle port is the QC port, not the outside one.


EDIT: The recharge time of the stock battery is about 6-7 hours; The recharge time of the one I linked is about 10-11 hours. You can maximize play time by burning through the 2.5hr one first, recharging it while using the larger battery, the 2.5hr battery should be almost fully charged by the time you burn through the bigger battery.

u/Peteostro · 4 pointsr/Vive

There’s another thread on here that says this one works fine:

u/DpwnShift · 4 pointsr/assholedesign

Buy a portable charger That's my number one travel trip after being on the road for over two years now. You can Quick Charge 2 devices at a time at the airport (without hunting down an unused outlet), on the bus, during your flight, and while sitting down at a restaurant. Depending on the hotel I've even used this exclusively to charge my phone and it will last about a week between charges. I realize this model may be overkill for some, but it will charge your phone from 0%-100% up to six times.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with this company and have no incentive for them to do well. I have also used RavPower chargers in the past, so use whatever brand meets your needs.

I personally love this one, but what u/recon455 said is 100% true. You won't need much. This is probably overkill, but it's up to you.


u/sapaul1996 · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

Hi there! here are some suggestions for power banks that satisfy any needs you can have for the purpose of charging the pixel line and like devices

I highly recommend these ones because I have had experience using these and feel they check all my boxes. That is, they support USB Power Delivery (PD) and Qualcomm Quickcharge (QC), and in effect rapidly charge all my devices that support fast charging:

[Jackery Power Bar] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076DXWPHS/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1)
This one is my favorite because it also has an AC outlet to charge most U.S. laptops. It is so freaking convenient for studying on my computer on the go.

[iWALK Power Bank] (https://www.amazon.com/iWALK-20000mAh-Portable-Delivery-Nintendo/dp/B078NSC4QG/ref=sr_1_22?ie=UTF8&qid=1520746914&sr=8-22&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

Here are some that I have not owned, but after research seem to be worth recommending (of course, do your own analysis). I believe all three of these support USB PD and Qualcomm QC:

[Anker PowerCore] (https://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerCore-20100mAh-Portable-Delivery/dp/B071WNWRNC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1520744694&sr=8-4&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

[Auckly Portable External Charger] (https://www.amazon.com/Portable-External-Auckly10000mAh-High-Speed-Charging/dp/B0785K8WSB/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1520744694&sr=8-5&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

[Aukey Power Bank] (https://www.amazon.com/AUKEY-26500mAh-Portable-Delivery-Nintendo/dp/B071CQYBSN/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1520744694&sr=8-8&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

Here are some that I am skeptical about for different reasons, but they did catch my eye while researching:

[PURIDEA Power Bank] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0794V63VJ/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B0794V63VJ&pd_rd_wg=OQUVw&pd_rd_r=42A3W5CMQPF2VADS872F&pd_rd_w=NlRw8)

[RAVPower Portable Charger] (https://www.amazon.com/Portable-RAVPower-20100mAh-Transfer-Smartphones/dp/B0156HCJQO/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1520744694&sr=8-13&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

[ZeroLemon Juicebox Portable Charger] (https://www.amazon.com/ZeroLemon-USB-Type-Portable-Charger/dp/B071HQFYRR/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1520744694&sr=8-19&keywords=usb+pd+power+bank)

Let me know if you have any questions. Disclaimer: I am not associated with any of these products.

u/PreachInsanity · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

Car charger I highly recommend just getting an Android Auto head unit. Spendy, but so worth it. Best buy has one on sale for their deal of the day for $300.

For a power bank, I have this and travel a lot. $10 coupon on Amazon ATM: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B071WNWRNC/

It comes with a wall adapter, uses usb c port to charge, and has USB PD (fast charges both the bank and your Pixel).

Since it charges with usb c you only need 1 power adapter and cord when traveling to charge either your phone or battery bank.

u/Slobotic · 4 pointsr/pokemongo

Ordered mine today w/free same day shipping. I got the moster version so I can offer a charge to people I run into at the Lure Module parties.

u/Surfac3 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You neglected to mention the aukey 30000 mAh battery that has both USB c power delivery and a qc 3.0 port along with a standard USB port.

AUKEY USB-C Portable Charger 30000mAh with Power Delivery, Quick Charge 3.0, and AiPower Charging Ports for MacBook, iPad, iPhone, Android Phones, Speakers, and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071CQYBSN/

Great battery for the switch and all your other devices. Also cheaper then any other USB c power delivery battery I've seen and one of maybe two that has both power delivery and qc 3.0.

There is also the rav power USB c pd charger which is cheaper then the Anker I believe.

PD USB C Hubs Portable Charger RAVPower 20100 Power Bank 20100mAh 30W (Max.) Type C Port iSmart Data Transfer, USB C/Type C Output, External Battery Pack for MacBook, Laptops, Smartphones https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0156HCJQO/

But great post op will help tons of new switch owners I'm sure. And also as an owner of the pixel charger (due to having a pixel) it is hands down the best portable charger for the switch Imo.

u/mntgoat · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

Based on the spreadsheet I think this one might work https://www.amazon.com/product/dp/B0156HCJQO

u/ktchiu1017 · 4 pointsr/Nexus6P

RAVPower I believe is the only one with a 3A USB-C port: http://www.amazon.com/Portable-RAVPower-20100mAh-External-Technology/dp/B0156HCJQO

u/panda_bear · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Ah wait! Wait wait wait. My bad, forgot where i was. Thought you meant for your pixel phone. Hmm, check this link out by Medium. They'll recommend a 10w-18w charger. Anker sells a variety, so you should be able to find something that'll help. Amazon sells some, but be sure to scan reviews. Here's one that would work but was identified as STILL being too big - link. In it they say:
> I'm going to have to buy a charger with 3/4 to 1 inch of height/depth for my Switch.

Some things to consider. Hope it helps.

u/Wolf_Fluffer · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

I use the Nekteck 5.4A USB-C Car Charge(4019006) which I highly recommend. It's a Benson approved USB-C car charger and has a standard USB A port as well. Amusingly enough it seems to charge my phone faster than the stock Google pixel charger though this hasn't been tested.



u/GingerAle55555 · 4 pointsr/internetparents

I’m gonna be the unpopular person who says that you don’t have to pack light. Especially if you’re staying put in the same hotel etc. You’re most likely checking your suitcase in transit so who cares if it’s bigger or packed to capacity? I travel with larger bags (on wheels) all the time and I can honestly say that if my bag is a few inches bigger or a couple pounds heavier it makes zero difference. Just make sure you’re within the airlines guidelines.

SO. My point is, don’t put too much pressure on yourself to pack perfectly. If you can’t decide between a couple shirts, just bring both. You’ll be happier later when you have the choice. Check the weather for the time of year or dates you’re going and then look at your wardrobe. What would you be comfortable in? Pack those things. Look at your itinerary, what do you need to dress for? Pack those things. Stick to just a couple pairs of shoes. They take up the most space/are bulky. Good walking shoes are probably a must and then a pair to dress up a little with if you go somewhere nicer. If you can do laundry somewhere great, if not it’s ok to pack a few more pairs of underwear and shirts. Also consider packing some Shout Wipes in case you stain something you had hoped to rewear. Plan on wearing pants multiple times. For Scotland def pack some rain-appropriate things like a jacket etc.

Get some travel size toiletries and think about extras you might need. Yes you could buy Tylenol while there if you have a headache but then you have to go find it and depending on where you are it may be more expensive. It’s a small and light thing anyway so just pack some just in case. Think about other things like that.

Bring entertainment for the flight as well as snacks if you don’t want to pay for them onboard (airplane snacks can be pricey). Download books, movies, shows onto electronics ahead of time.

Lastly you might need power adapters depending on where you are coming from. Make sure you have a few so you can charge all of your tech. You might also consider getting a battery pack so you can charge on the go. Nothing worse than your entertainment dying mid-flight or your phone dying as you try to get an Uber. I love this one.

u/pappcam · 4 pointsr/galaxys10

Just get a decently reviewed Wireless charger from Amazon like the one mentioned already. I've had a Seneo almost identical to that one and it's over 3 years old and still working fine.


u/Akiraoo · 3 pointsr/pokemongo

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy s4 mini. This phone will have issues with the "GPS location not found issue." I found the fix for this is to download another app known as: "GPS status & toolbox" run the "Gps status and toolbox" app before opening the "pokemon go" app. The game will now work. You will see pokemon. Note: The servers are currently being slammed. So the game is not really playable. But once the servers calm down. Your phone will be able to play it. I was playing early this morning with no problems. Then people woke up and slammed the servers. I hoped this helped! BTW: The battery drain of this app on our phone is killer. Expect 4 hours max before a dead battery. I recommend grabbing a EasyAcc Monster 20000mAh Power Bank right now. They are on sale for $32.99, which is a 90% discount from the original price of $122.99.


u/pbewig · 3 pointsr/vandwellers

Both of the products that you mentioned look over-priced and over-specified.

If you limit yourself to 5V USB I recommend a 75 watt-hour battery ($37) for its dual inputs; it charges twice as fast as a normal battery. That should be sufficient to charge two cell phones, a small lamp ($4) and a fan ($17). You can charge the battery from a wall outlet, with a cigarette lighter USB adapter ($10), or with a small solar panel ($100).

You might prefer a Luci light ($15) to the lamp mentioned above; it charges itself from the sun and won't consume any of your battery capacity.

If you need 12 volts, I recommend a 185 watt-hour battery ($130), which will also charge a laptop computer. It recharges from a wall outlet, or you can use a 150 watt inverter ($24) from your cigarette lighter.

u/TrivisionZero · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

Personally if there was any doubt about a product that will power your entertainment device on a trip, I'd get a highly recommended portable battery bank instead. You have Aukey, Anker, Amazon Basics, or EasyAcc (my personal favorite, last two products from them still really good almost a year later).

I have the 10,000 mAh one, but this one looks better tbh. Has 20Ah and 4.8A output.

However if you don't wanna have a converter cable as well as a normal type-C on you, get this Anker one.

u/Chadarius · 3 pointsr/Bushcraft

I use the following battery and solar panel for camping and it works pretty good!

This battery has dual usb charging ports so it can be recharged faster and it has a flashlight.


I use this solar charger with it. It can recharge 25-50% of the battery on a sunny day.


If you charge the battery up fully before your trip you should be able to recharge your camera, iPod, and paperwhite at least twice before it runs out.

When I am not camping I usually put the panel and battery in my windshield to charge during the day.

u/Amish911 · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

I've been using this one from RavPower for the past five months. It went all over Thailand with me in March and April, it works great.

u/retnuh730 · 3 pointsr/iphone

Yeah dude seems to be mistaken. Most people on the Apple side don't really have experience with fast chargers. I had a Nexus 6P and a Nintendo switch so I'm pretty well versed in all the different charging standards and how they work. I've got a battery bank from RAVPower that does USB-C PD that works exceptionally well for my X.

Unfortunately the only cable that really works well with USB-PD is the one sold by apple themselves so you're kinda stuck with that charge.

u/amb9800 · 3 pointsr/UsbCHardware

I've been looking for something similar (<400g, 30+ W PD, pass-through charging).

Haven't come across anything quite perfect, but so far I've found (in increasing price order):

u/pearlythepirate · 3 pointsr/MotoX

This one works great for me. Can't tell the difference in time to charge versus AC. And you can charge it using quick charging as well.

u/Saik0Shinigami · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P
u/CromTheAlmighty · 3 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

It can really vary not only on the charger but the quality of the USB cable.

I got a Shield K1 a few weeks ago. I ordered the following charger and USB cables:

u/TLRO53 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch


It says "Supreme Compatibility: Backwards-compatible with all versions of Qualcomm Quick Charge technology (1.0, 2.0 & 3.0). Also charges non–Quick Charge devices at up to 2.4A."

Hopefully safe.

u/foosion · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

Many usb-c car chargers have a usb-a port, so presumably you could use the c cable for the pixel and plug a lightening cable into the a port.

For example, https://www.amazon.com/charger-Nekteck-Charger-Adapter-Integrated/dp/B0172QQNBY

Lightening quick charge could be a problem with this.

u/ScottTenorman54 · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

From what I understand, it is indeed your port. https://www.howtogeek.com/309766/want-fast-charging-dont-use-your-cars-usb-ports/

A 12 volt socket to USB-A cable will charge your phone normally, and if you want to rapid charge, go with a 12 volt to USB-C cable like this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0172QQNBY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_hkxhAbKVY1HF8

Hope that helps, I had the same problem coming from iPhone.

u/codyism · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0172QQNBY/ is what I bought. It is a -1 on the list but it is also Benson's personal unit. I figure if he rocks it I should be good. There are no standout car chargers right now.

u/Super2cool · 3 pointsr/Android

Thanks for the review and I really appreciate it.

I have a few suggestions.

Can you add a buy link / amazon link in your posts so people know where they can buy the chargers from?

Also.. Can you review this one too? https://www.amazon.com/PowerIQ-Anker-Charger-PowerPort-included/dp/B01CJ90J6O/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1468080497&sr=8-2&keywords=anker+usb+c+charger

u/ltonto · 3 pointsr/electronic_circuits

Do you already have lots of AA batteries?

Your best option is a "power bank" - something like this one, which is 22000mAh.

The more mAh, the longer the battery life. So this is more than 10x your iPhone pack capacity (which 1558mAh) so should be good to recharge your completely-flat phone 10x over. If your iPhone only hits 50% at the end of the day, then you should be good for 20+ recharges.

The powerbank itself is rechargeable, so as long as you find a charge point every 10 days or so, you'll have continuous phone power available.

This one.

Scroll down a bit on the page for the promotional offers.

You get THIS and THIS for free with purchase.

Li-PO battery inside gives better longevity. Cheaper than the ankers and bigger. Registering the products at their website gives you 18 months no hassle warranty with a life time warranty. No problems with it so far, have only made 4 full discharge cycles on it. So far, I love them both.


This is what my checkout screen looked like.

u/Baconstrip01 · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

I use this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01G1XH46M/

I played Dark Souls 2 for like 4 hours on a flight with it, and my WIN was still at about 80%. Heavily intensive games do still drain power on the charger, but I still could have gotten a whole lot of time out of it.

Battery is perfect (though kinda big).

The WIN does get pretty hot when plugged in to the charger + gaming, but I didn't have any problems :)

u/MetalWeather · 3 pointsr/TheSilphRoad

I've used the RAVPower 22,000mAH Battery Bank since the game launched and it has been amazing. Lasts several days of use while charging one phone, and can charge from all three ports at fast charging speed.

Without that fast charge there is no way my phone would gain battery during play. With fast charge I can be raiding with full brightness and still gain battery.

u/shgoose · 3 pointsr/iphone

I agree it’s annoying. Get something like this for the desk though and problem solved? This is what I’m planning to do anyways.

u/Jurph · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

There are a few factors at work.

  • Americans don't swap SIMs. This means that for fancy upmarket phones where a SIM will be a near-permanent fixture in the phone, the manufacturer wants it to take up as little volume as possible and doesn't care about user interface or usability.

  • The larger size has no benefit. Again, until you get down to a size that is difficult for human fingers to manipulate, the volume of a SIM is mostly plastic and air, and that's space inside a phone that could be used for other stuff. ("Other stuff" is usually "more batteries".)

  • Forced obsolescence. By changing form factors, the mobile phone manufacturers and vendors can force an upgrade cycle on you; since upgrades generally also result in new two-year contracts, this is a great way to keep you shackled to a vendor.

    The good news is you can get a regular SIM from your carrier and use a SIM cutter to reduce its size to Micro or possibly even Nano.
u/nimbyfubar · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel
u/sniperzoo · 3 pointsr/tifu

I'm not sure if he's messing with you but the contacts on SIM cards are the same

The rest of the size is the plastic backing. You cut SIM cards with scissors or a SIM card cutter.

If you go to a tech that knows how to Google they can find that removing the SIM is fairly simple.

u/zdrouse · 3 pointsr/nexus6

So, why didn't you use the cutter?


Would have prevented the hassle of making a post about this and also having to deal with Verizon. I removed the middle man directly and cut the card. Works flawlessly. Just read the customer reviews.

20$ on amazon. Sounds like a very decent price.

u/myfakerealname · 3 pointsr/Autocross

I've used AIM data loggers and made my own arduino based accelerometer and GPS data acquisition systems; but lately I prefer the phone/tablet based GPS logging apps when paired with an external 10Hz+ GPS. IMO, the ability to easily review the data on the spot and provide immediate feedback and comparisons between runs far out weighs the bell and whistles of the more advanced systems that typically require plugging into a computer to review the data. Phone mounting is really not an issue if you get a good mount (I use a ram mount or [kenu airframe] (https://www.amazon.com/Kenu-Airframe-Universal-Accessories-Compatible/dp/B00D901B4W/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1501912932&sr=8-6&keywords=phone+vent+clip)).

I didn't like the high cost of Solostorm, so I prefer RaceChrono for it's simplicity, while some people like Harry's Laptimer. They will all give you speed, position, and accel from the GPS data. How they differ is in the user interface and presentation of the data. For overlaying data on video, I use [Dashware] (http://www.dashware.net/).

Regarding the actual data, I personally find the speed and position data more useful than just the long/lat accel data. Pro Tip: You'll gain a lot of insight by logging data of people faster than you.

u/DeadPlasmaCell · 3 pointsr/LGG3

The Kenu Airframe+ works fantastic. I got it for my wife and it's such a well built, simple and small item that holds the phone perfectly in portrait or landscape mode. They sell the original Kenu Airframe for a little bit cheaper, but it isn't as deep and it doesn't expand as much, so I can't say for sure if that one would work.. Seems like it would though.

u/TheWey · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

u/zuiaiqie · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

those cases will be heavy and bulky af. just use those water proof bags like this one. I got one since iphone 4 and it still works perfect now(it's easy to tell when it stops working).


u/burnmail123 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS7

You can try what I did while filming underwater. Get a pouch, I have similar to this one: Amazon and it works great.

Start filming out of the water and then submerge. It will stay recording without problems.

You can use volume rockers to take photos underwater or to take photos while recording.

u/anotherDocObVious · 3 pointsr/oneplus

I swear by these - Diztronic TPU case

To this day - by far, THE BEST covers I've ever had, for the Oneplus One.

u/Captain_Midnight · 3 pointsr/oneplus

Diztronic is the go-to recommendation. TPU is basically like rubber but more resistant to tearing and puncturing.

They also have a beefier "Ultra" version: http://www.amazon.com/Diztronic-Ultra-TPU-Case-OnePlus/dp/B00OSS12Z2

u/sumchinesewill · 3 pointsr/oneplus

The clear case from Oneplus does not really protect the top or the bottom of the phone. It just protects the back and the side and it's slippery as hell.

I would go a diztronic case


and a tempered glass screen protector. The most popular one it seems is Orzly, although I've had issues with it, it seems to be the best one from reviews


There is no cases out right now that will keep the sandstone look unless you get a clear case but it'll still make it look washed out. You can get an aluminum bumper case but it cases reception issues.

u/mehtabg · 3 pointsr/oneplus

I bought the Tudia case when I first bought the phone but I found that it added too much bulk to the phone and caught way too many fingerprints on the glossy back.

I've since bought the Diztronic TPU case and I love it. I would definitely recommend it if you were looking for a matte black case! (Link: http://www.amazon.ca/Diztronic-Matte-Black-Flexible-OnePlus/dp/B00MBS1NA0)

u/Cromulator · 3 pointsr/oneplus

I've had two cases so far, The Diztronic case that that has been mentioned, and this one.

The Diztronic I had first since everyone recommended it. It is really well made, fits nicely, its thin, all around great except... it's really slippery. Makes it difficult to use with one hand without it sliding off my palm. Multiple times I almost dropped the phone because of this.

Then I got Tudia case. I wanted something with a little more grip. This one has smooth/glossy border around the sides which kind of 'sticks' to your skin, making it much easier to use one-handed less likely to be dropped. On the down side, it does hold fingerprints around that thin border area. The quality is a bit lower as well, you can see the the lines from the molding process (which you can't on the Diztronic).

Overall, I'm kind of torn. The Diztronic is much nicer to look at, but the Tudia feels safer and makes the phone easier to hold. I'm going to give each more time, but thought I'd share my thoughts.

u/trova · 3 pointsr/galaxynote5

iOttie's qi mount is the good stuff. I use Waze for my 1hr commute to and from work, and it'll trickle charge enough that the battery drain is minimal.


u/open1your1eyes0 · 3 pointsr/Android

I've been using this one lately but swapped out the holder for a CD-slot mount from another car dock. It's the smallest one on the market and works great. :)


Previously I had this one which actually had a better one-handed removal mount but just wanted to switch to something a little more compact now that I'm using a CD-slot dock and don't want to cover as much of my vehicle's touchscreen. Both are great options however depending what you want.


u/VoyeurOfBliss · 3 pointsr/sexover30

IMO, GoPro is not a good choice for this. Cell phones are a better choice if you have a way to mount it or prop it up somewhere. A cell phone will capture amazing audio as long as you can get it close. If you can use more than one camera (cell phone if needed) at a time, stitching and editing the video together can be very useful. Put them in airplane mode to avoid accidental upload, pull the video off of them via USB cable, and delete original before turning off airplane mode. I highly recommend the camera and lens I have below, because they are so useful outside of the bedroom for family or activity stuff. Kind of pricey.

I use three devices at the same time: cell phone, video camera, and microphone. Here is a few links from a recent comment:

>Her view is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 running a Sigma 350963 60mm F2.8 DN mounted to a GFM MK-1 tripod behind the bed.

>His view, seen in the rest of the gifs (NSFW!), is on a microphone stand held in place by bags of rock salt inside custom bags, and the other end is adorned with a GPS bicycle mount, which uses the Gamin ball diameter that I've standardized on for over ten years. On the ball is a iOttie phone dock, and clipped in the mount is a Galaxy S7 International running in pro video mode.

You can see our home (sexy) tapes here (very NSFW), feel free to ask any questions. I use Adobe Premiere to edit them.

u/lastnerdstanding · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I've used this dock before and worked well: https://smile.amazon.com/iOttie-HLCRIO132-Wireless-Standard-Charger/dp/B00UXS7958

Edit: Found their newer version which is magnetic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pm9LmmGoZ6M

So what exactly are you trying to accomplish? Wouldn't it be impractical?

u/Einhorc · 3 pointsr/GalaxyNote8

I have also been wondering this. Currently on my note 3 I use the Spigen magnetic mount and enjoy not having to fight with a mount.

Now I have my note 8 I'm looking forward to using wireless and I know that the magnetic plate will interfere with the charge process. I came across this iOttie however it doesn't support fast charge and its £65 from amazon which is a lot more than I'd be willing to pay. I discovered they have this model coming soon, I think we are both looking for a similar solution. The only other thing that slightly annoys me is that they both use micro USB rather than type C.

u/Henry_Yopp · 3 pointsr/Vive

I use Anker IQ 40W/8A 5-Port USB Quick Charger with this charging dock.

Note that this is for my Anker Powerbanks for my TPCast. My banks are Anker PowerCores 20100mAh and they last about 5 hours and take about 8-8.5 hours to fully charge back from dead. I have two batteries that I keep in the charging dock at all times, to ensure I never run out of power.

u/UtahJarhead · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi
u/smite1911 · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

it's not quite as simple as just pulling the +5 volts and Ground off of the 4 pin molex and connecting it to a micro USB to plug into the Pi.

You'll have to jumper a couple pins on the big 20-pin Motherboard connector in order to get the PSU to power up, etc.

Depending on how much you want to DIY and the budget, it would probably be easier to get one of the multi-USB charger / power supply deals like those from Anker that give you 30-40 Watts across 5+ USB ports on the one supply.


u/jsprada · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I have one of these on my desk:


Which is quite similar to what you linked to, but a bit less powerful, 40W. (5v8A)

Yours is 60W (5v

At all times, mine is powering a Pi3 running OwnCloud (which is powering a magnetic disk drive off its USB port). I also use it to charge my phone, power several other single board computers, charge batteries, etc. It works perfectly, and would even say that everyone who tinkers should have one of these. Works great!

u/Account_93 · 3 pointsr/lgg4

I use one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00VH8ZW02/

I've had no issues when I've used it to charge.

At the moment I've got two charging cradles (for my extra batteries), LG Urbane charger and a iPad charging dock connected to it. No issues.

I would get some good quality cables if you've not already. I got an Aukey(another good brand) 5 pack from Amazon.

u/cexshun · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I don't have a pic, but there are several like mine.

Then just a handful of 1ft ethernet cables and 1ft USB cables. You can buy the USB to Barrel power cable for the switch, or if you are comfortable with a soldering iron, make one yourself.

u/FireReadyAim · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop
u/iampanis · 3 pointsr/zenfone2


This is what I use. It has a magnet that clips onto an air vent and a steel plate that attaches to your phone to stick to the magnet. The plate is probably intended to go under a case but will fit under the normal backplate of the ZF2 if you don't use one. This might break NFC functionality if you care about that, haven't tried it. Has worked pretty well for me. There's a bigger version with a stronger magnet but it doesn't really seem necessary even for a big phone like this.

u/RedOctober357 · 3 pointsr/WRX

I bought a magnetic air vent clip that came with a magnetic back plate that I attached to the accessport. Here's the link. No problems holding the accessport and you can move it to the far left of the vent to where you still get some air.

u/octobereighth · 3 pointsr/nexus5x

Depending on where you'll be traveling (i.e., depending on the temperature), you could get a magnetic phone mount that clips to your vent. Then turn the AC on - the AC will blow right at the phone!

Doubly good, since it will (hopefully) put your phone in a convenient navigation location.

I have this one and it's been great; there are tons of others on Amazon pretty cheap.

u/matttrick · 3 pointsr/nexus5x

One of those magnet/vent clip mounts for the car. Life changing to just be able to pop it on the vent with a low profile and no clip nonsense. Best part is they are dirt cheap. I have this one http://amzn.com/B0109JIQ0W

u/djrbx · 3 pointsr/GalaxyNote8

Get the 360 Camera. You can get 3rd party fast wireless chargers for around $20 USD and the 128GB MicroSD for about $50 USD. So you can make you're own bundle for about $70+tax.

The 360 Camera on the other hand retails for $175+tax.

So in the end, you get more value with the 360 camera than the wireless charger+MicroSD combo.

u/ssrij · 3 pointsr/apple

This one looks good

u/Logi15 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I got a high rated one off Amazon for about 20$. Plenty of options on there if you look.


I have the one above. It fast charges through all my cases.

u/zerozed · 3 pointsr/SteamVR

I purchased [a set of these](https://smile.amazon.com/Retractable-Management-Headset-MDW-Adhesive/dp/B01M6EB8DM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1524234947&sr=8-3& keywords=vive+cable+management) last year. Note that Amazon carries a variety of similar products. It works fairly well but I'd add some caveats. I have a drop-ceiling in my playspace so I was able to use string to affix the mechanism and didn't have to use the adhesive (which is reportedly very strong to the point of pulling off paint upon removal). You still have to be careful with a system like this because if you're swinging/punching with your arms, you can easily connect with a hanging cable.

I'm not sure if I really recommend it, but I don't regret getting it. I don't always use it, but when I do it has been useful.

MDW 6 Packs NEW Version Retractable Cable Management System for HTC VIVE https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M6EB8DM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_Nh8cxgkCxgexs

It's really cheap and convenient. I've only used it a little though, so while it works well I can't speak to its durability. That said, I only used half the stuff they sent so it's easy to replace a spool if it happens to be faulty.

u/Raynlaze · 3 pointsr/WindowsMR

I've got these, they look similar to what OP has:


US link: https://www.amazon.com/Retractable-Management-Headset-MDW-Adhesive/dp/B01M6EB8DM/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1539383439&sr=8-6&keywords=vr+cable

The thing applies to the ceiling with a very strong kind of sticky glue and applies to any surface (I thought it wouldn't apply to mine, since it's all rough, but it holds on fine). Then you can put that black part through the hook applied to the ceiling, which then has a retractable cable in it. Connect the black clip to the cable and put your vr cables through the black clip and you're done. So the only hing that is kind of hard/impossible to remove is the sticky part with the hook in it. The rest can be plug-and-play removed.

u/airbagit13 · 3 pointsr/oculus

I use this: https://www.amazon.com/MDW-Retractable-Management-Headset-Adhesive/dp/B01M6EB8DM it works great. I can't even think about going back to playing with a cable hanging getting all tangled in my legs.

/figdudeton noted that it will put stress on the cable. Not if you do this: https://www.reddit.com/r/EchoArena/comments/6ju9kk/cable_management_tips/?st=J59P04LR&sh=e936e8b5

I'm 90% sure it was this one:


It fits into the holder, but it juts out of it. lasts for about twice the length of the HTC battery.

u/onemantwohands · 3 pointsr/galaxys10

I am an avid traveler, and I use this anker as it has Quick Charge 3.0 as well as another outlet for charging my actual camera. QC3.0 allows me to charge my phone from 20% to 80% in 30-40 mins usually since I am a heavy camera phone users also. I would go days without an outlet sometimes so this usually last me 3 days without a charge from an outlet, before it goes dead.

u/Apneal · 3 pointsr/Vive

If it's QC3, it'll say so. I use this one and it works fine, even fits in the stock belt clip: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N0X3NL5/

u/PrinnyZ · 3 pointsr/Vive

While the adapters are pricey, they are totally worth it IMO. So I don't think you made a mistake here.

I have the wireless adapter as well and its how VR should be, un-tethered.

Regarding your 20K capacity battery, make sure it has a quick charge 3.0 port. It will only work if your adapter is plugged into that.

Here is the Anker battery bank I use (I get about 6 hours of play from it)

You could use the big bank while having the smaller one as a back up. Or go for two and when you swap, plug the other in to charge.


u/Jun1orDemiGod · 3 pointsr/Vive

I got the wireless adapter day one and I'm still using the original battery and this Anker QC3 powerbank

u/SeniorDemiGod · 3 pointsr/Vive

I've got myself a tiny backpack. It's just big enough for the Anker 20000

Ok it's got a Teddy Bear embroidered on it, but I like to think it adds to the style.

u/Scyntrus · 3 pointsr/Vive

So intel CPUs only have 16 pcie lanes. Make sure your bios is set to split the lanes 8/4/4. GPU gets 8, wifi card gets 4, and if you have any m.2 drive it gets the other 4. Sometimes it decides to round robin 16 lanes, which kills performance.

For the disconnects, replace the wireless battery and cable. This worked for me:

Also funny enough I have the exact same hardware you have except I'm using 3200Mhz RAM. The video encoding for the wireless adapter does consistently consume an entire CPU core, but Skyrim wasn't using it anyways so I haven't noticed much performance difference. I do notice that in some dark scenes I get jpg-like compression artifacts. On the other hand VRChat performance really shit the bed and I get constant compression artifacts in crowded instances.

u/joshuadwx · 3 pointsr/anker

I don’t typically recommend older models, but PowerCore Speed 20000 PD fits your needs well.

You can charge one device with a USB-C to Lightning Cable (or a USB-C to USB-C Cable depending on your iPad model) and another with a USB-A to Lightning Cable.

If you want the capability of charging all three devices simultaneously, then PowerCore+ 26800 PD is your best option.

u/LAZER-RAGER · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

Anker actually does have PD charging, and I would trust a name like Anker more than ZMI:

10,000 mAh ($45.99)

20,100 mAh ($99.99)

26,800 mAh ($129.99)

u/Dr_Dugtrio · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

This one is 2100mAh and has the Nintendo protocols and branding. These two are the safest to use with your switch but not by a significant amount over other USB-C If complaint devices. Like this.

u/rextraverse · 3 pointsr/Disneyland

I've used Anker and RAVPower battery packs in the past and have been very satisfied. Mophie products tend to be expensive but are excellent quality and highly reliable.

With an iPhone X, I would recommend you look into a battery pack that has a USB-C port that supports USB-PD (aka 'Power Delivery', the fast charging technology that Apple uses for iPhones) and able to output at least 30W from that specific port and an USB-C to Lightning cable for the absolute fastest recharges while in the park.

Some USB-C Power Delivery recommendations:
RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger
Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD
Mophie Powerstation XXL

You might also want to look into battery packs with an AC outlet. That way, you can use a fast charging wall wart you already have and can use elsewhere for fast charging:
RAVPower AC Outlet Portable Charger
Mophie Powerstation AC

u/bonesda · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

The one you linked doesn’t have the USB C PD or Power Delivery. It won’t charge the Switch at a high rate. In other words, when you’re playing a game the switch won’t be charging. It could be maintaining power, but it won’t go up power wise.

Now there isn’t a risk of buying the above. It’s a solid power bank but it’s not optimal.

There is a twin of the one linked in the deal that doesn’t have the branding and is sold for $30 or more less than the branded one. If you’re patient you can find it for $20-$35. I got a used one from eBay for under $20.

Here’s a link to the twin on amazon:

Can’t find the solo one that comes without the plug.

u/Natsu-One · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

For this price, I would rather suggest that you wait for the Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD powerbank because it comes with a 30W wall charger and the powerbank itself supports the fast USB-C power delivery. Currently it sells at $79.99 but I got it at $49.99 in a lightning deal mid-February.

You can add this to your Amazon watch list or a Keepa account to be notified the next time it has a lightning deal:

Just thought I would let everyone know that apparently there is a problem right now with 3rd party docks and possibly portable batteries.

Fast charger does charge your phone faster, but over very long term you will see a very small amount more in battery degradation.

There are also great 3rd party fast wireless chargers you can buy. Here is one from Anker, they are a trusted company in charging periferals and I have this one on my sidetable next to my bed, charge my phone on it every night. Fast and extremely nice.

It's also $20, just like the one you linked

My car mount has a magnet in the mount and a plate that you're supposed to put on your phone-- I have the plate sitting in the case at the bottom of the phone, and I'm still able to wirelessly charge, although I'm on an S9+, so that might help with positioning.

I've invested some €30 in this VR cable solution: link amazon . It works pretty well, though you can still get tangled up in the cable when you tend to turn too much in one direction compared to the other (apparently, I much prefer to turning to the left for some reason). It does get the cable successfully out of your feet however. All in all it's worth the price I'd say. As I live in Europe, I bought it on amazon.de .

u/caltheon · 2 pointsr/Vive

And the US link https://www.amazon.com/Retractable-Management-Headset-MDW-Adhesive/dp/B01M6EB8DM $26 USD, might have to give this a try. My only concern is my ceiling is really high in my VR room. I may need to suspend the pulleys somehow.

u/Pyrostasis · 2 pointsr/Vive

Got my vive about 2 weeks ago and have been pounding away trying to get the tech kinks removed so I can reliably record and stream it. Figured I'd share some of my personal issues and my fixes for them.

First off my tech specs.

AMD Threadripper 1950x
32 gigs of Gskills 3600 ram
1080 GTX
HTC Vive + Audio strap

First issue I ran into was being able to reliably capture the video in OBS. The monitor usually displays a stretch image that doesnt easily conform to 1920x1080. You can mirror the display but then you are looking at 2 eyes and thats even worse.

This plugin allows you to use the mirrored eyes, strip one, and then make that perfectly fit 1920x1080.

Another issue is being able to see twitch chat while playing. Sure you can open up desktop mode but reading that can be a pain in the ass.

Twitch chat overlay fixed that. You can place chat on a hand or in the world, makes it convenient and limits immersive breakage.

Only other issues Im having that make recording a struggle is audio issues (2 mics and 2 headsets), No access to stream deck, no easy access to streamlabs, and cable management.

I'm trying a pulley system attached to the ceiling but I still somehow manage to get caught up in there still in Pavlov and Robo Recall... really any game that requires fast 360's with your body and not controllers.

Any of you found a way to get streamlabs, streamdeck, or cable management on 360's would love to hear it!

Cant wait till HTC releases their wireless setup. Hope that is solid.

u/Symplicified · 2 pointsr/Vive

u/Lizzibabe · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Plan for the cold. Buy a good sleeping bag and don't scrimp on it. This link recommends Kelty brand sleeping bags. I own Kelty brand and its good. A mummy style fits closer for warmth, but can feel claustrophobic. a rectangular style fits looser for movement, but at a cost of less warmth.

Plan for warm layers for yourself. buying a good baselayer can help keep you warm when you're not in your sleeping bag. Merino wool is a good choice, but it costs. its worth the cost. there are synthetic styles that are cheaper.

Buy a good headlamp, because making your way to the public restrooms in the dark sucks muchly and you'd hate it if you dropped and lost your flashlight. plus carrying a flashlight in your hand means you can't carry much else.

Buy something that will help you cook your food and heat water. If that's going to be handled for you, then you might not need it. Me, I like to be self-sufficient and I really like my tea. Be sure to ask your group how food is going to be handled. I like GSI Outdoors brand because its nice and compact and its a nice size for a Vargo titanium alcohol stove. If you go this route, you'll need Denatured Alcohol which is hard to be shipped. Call around local hardware stores or hiking stores around you to see if anyone carries it. You'll also need flip top plastic squeeze bottles to carry the alcohol around in. Keep it in its own leak-proof bag. If you have a store close to you like Cabela's or REI, they carry this stuff too.

buy a travel mug with a cover. Me, I like Hydroflask brand because its flip-top cap is leak proof, but YMMV.

Here's a bunch of hacks that look interesting. You don't have to go all-out on these, but if you find yourself doing this type of car-camping again, you'll find them useful. Here's some more tips for first-time campers

WEAR STURDY SHOES. Boots are a great idea, but they also make hiking shoes that are lighter in weight. Buy merino wool socks. Merino wool is like ovens for your feet. I like Smartwool or Darn Tough

For food: I've done an entire camping trip on nothing but unrefrigerated foods. I bought a good crusty bread, squeeze peanut butter and squeeze jam. there are also pre-packaged hiking foods that are tasty. Make sure you bring several gallons of water and be sure to keep hydrated.

also BUG SPRAY! Don't mess around with "all natural" bug spray. You want DEET. I went camping in an area that was close to the water table and was basically mosquito breeding central. from the time when I arrived and the time I finally broke down and bought a DEET-based repellant, I was bitten 47 times.

edited to add: PHONE CHARGERS! This is mega important because power is going to be a premium at a festival. I own this Anker Power Core and it will re-charge your phone up to 7 times. Its kind of heavy, but its worth it. Anker also sells smaller ones that will recharge a phone twice to three times.

edited again to add: Anything you buy, test it before the trip happens. Sleep a night in your new sleeping bag. test your new camp-stove (outside preferably). cook something in your new camp pot. see how it works so that if there's something that doesn't happen the way you want it, you know about it before the big day. especially if you've never used a campstove before: you want to learn how to operate it without burning yourself or others or setting fire to things that shouldn't be on fire.

I went with a recommended Anker 20000 as it fits perfect in the included battery clip. It's a monster and lasts for hours. But as it's heavier than the stock battery it doesn't easily clip directly to the headband like with the stock battery, so smaller batteries could be a better choice for that.

Supposedly any battery with Quick Charge 3.0 output will work, probably some black friday deals going on.

All that matters is it's Anker and says Quick Charge 3 right? Like this one would work?

u/Mucker2002 · 2 pointsr/Vive

I''m in the UK and got THIS ONE from Amazon.

It's like it was made to fit the official battery holder it's just longer.

EDIT: Looks like it's available where you are - Anker PowerCore Speed 20000, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

u/kna_rus · 2 pointsr/Vive

You can use the headset with wireless adapter in what I call "wired wireless mode" by plugging USB power into a QC 3.0 capable charger - I have a 5 meter USB cable for that and it works fine. Here's the charger I use to charge controllers, trackers and battery after VR sessions. The QuickCharge port can also power the wireless adapter. You may want to check your phone charger for support of QC 3 too - some phones support it.

As for power banks, HTC ones are trash. They give around 2 hours of play and then charge for like 7 hours because they don't support QC input at all. They are that bad. On the upside, they can charge from any USB port.
Luckily, you can use any QC 3.0 capable power bank. I personally use Anker PowerCore Speed 20000, gives around 5 hours of playtime, fits into HTC clip (although it sticks out as it is much longer), and has QC support for its own charging, so it charges in around 6 hours too. Having two of these, you can theoretically swap them for unlimited wireless playtime. You can also charge one controller at a time from its second USB port.

u/mrgreaper · 2 pointsr/Vive

just ordered an upgraded version of my charger ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N0X3NL5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) will that seen reports that it does work on the tpcast (figured mine is the older one) so should work on the official one too.
Just had a brief 17 minute game of blade & sourcery, recorded it and may upload it though man I came off psychotic!

lack of cable is a huge difference when playing though because I was recording it caused the system to stress out, near the end it was a tad jolty and the device got very hot.

There's a link to the Wiki in the sidebar. The Wiki has a USB-PD page that lists chargers and power banks. Personally, I've used this because I already had it and it works fine:




If you need a power bank (battery) too, you can get them in a combo, something like this:

Just got this Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD couple of weeks ago: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071WNWRNC/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_GQVEAbECP5KZ6

The bank comes with a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger to charge the bank itself in about 4 hours. It charges the Switch while playing in handheld/tabletop, and it fast charges my Note 8! I bought this powerbank specifically for flights as well.

Whatever you do, it's recommended you go with a powerbank that has USB-C power delivery for the Switch!

from another user

>I'm using a Samsung Galaxy s4 mini. This phone will have issues with the "GPS location not found issue." I found the fix for this is to download another app known as: "GPS status & toolbox" run the "Gps status and toolbox" app before opening the "pokemon go" app. The game will now work. You will see pokemon. Note: The servers are currently being slammed. So the game is not really playable. But once the servers calm down. Your phone will be able to play it. I was playing early this morning with no problems. Then people woke up and slammed the servers. I hoped this helped! BTW: The battery drain of this app on our phone is killer. Expect 4 hours max before a dead battery. I recommend grabbing a EasyAcc Monster 20000mAh Power Bank right now. They are on sale for $32.99, which is a 90% discount from the original price of $122.99.

u/IsAnAlpaca · 2 pointsr/AskEngineers

No, you will probably not be able to charge it any faster.

Basically your battery pack will only accept 2A as the maximum input, and your solar cells out up to 3.4 A at 5V (which is a weird number - USB devices are supposed to ask for how much current they want, otherwise they get something like 500 mA).

You aren't completely out of luck though, I found this battery pack which has dual inputs that would theoretically charge faster: https://www.amazon.com/EasyAcc-20000mAh-Dual-Input-External-Portable/dp/B01422TC14/ref=sr_1_6?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1475102042&sr=1-6&keywords=battery+pack

u/jzpenny · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

The approach I'm taking on my Pi 3-based "field computer" project is to use a buck converter to supply constant 5V to a 20000mah battery pack, in turn being fed by a cheapo 12V 30A switching PSU. That battery pack can pump out more than enough current for my purposes, but for higher amperage loads you could simply inject USB power directly from the buck converter rails.

Total cost of approximately $30 is competitive with a quality 5V 10A AC adapter. The benefit with this setup over an adapter is that by skipping the PSU stage and feeding straight off the buck converter, I can run off of essentially any common DC source, including car and motorcycle batteries. Of course, if the input voltage isn't 12V, you'll have to dial it in with the buck converter, but that's a small price for the ability to tap into all those 18V power tool batteries and even 36V golf carts & wheelchairs.

Note that there are a BUNCH of those "DROK" brand converters on Amazon. Some are boost only, some buck only, others have both stages on the same board for greatly increased flexibility at the cost of some conversion efficiency. Watch the voltage and amperage specs, assume that any stated thresholds are optimistic, and plan to do thermal testing and add additional cooling if needed for your application. If you can find them, and they are getting hard to find, the MingHe D3806 is pretty much the best, and is actually the one I'm using.

Note also to take care with wire resistance! Most especially, be mindful not to end up with a design that's got all 6 amps flowing over some generic USB cable with 28 gauge 5v strands.

u/JScotty28x · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Sorry to be that guy, but I am clueless about all the details. After skimming, I'm terrified of burning up my Switch battery. This battery pack looks like a great deal, can anyone verify it would be fine for the Switch?:


u/vw_bugg · 2 pointsr/GalaxyNote9

Damn, i was thinking of buying. Ive had an anker so long though. Anker was so awesome on their support and warranty replacement. Ive also owned an "EasyACC" which has been the best battery ive owned. But its starting to wear out (and countless drops has damaged it too much). I actually might replace with the same one...

Like most have suggested Anker is king of power banks, but I've honestly had no issues with my EasyAcc power banks which have been great for the price (I bought them at cheaper than the current Amazon listings). Link to those if you're still interested: 10,000mAh and 20,000mAh

u/paintchips_beef · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

this has been my favorite one. 20k mAh, it has 2 ports to charge it with so it can charge really fast, and it has 4 hookups to charge other devices simultaneously. Pretty similar to the second one you posted.

This is the one I have, works great, charges very quickly: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014GRM294

they also make these:



Those two have type C connectors, and the last one is also QC 3.0 compatible so if you get a device with that later on it'll be compatible as well. Right now the LG G5 is the only flagship device with QC 3.0, but I imagine the next gen Moto X will have it as well. Depends on how often you refresh your phone I guess, or if you have or plan to get other devices with type C.

This is my favorite thing. I have it in my bag with a long USB cord looped in. This particular model can charge my Samsung Note 4 5 times or so per full charge of battery.

There are cheaper models as well by the same manufacturer. Anker is also popular.

I'm going to grab one more just to have.

u/-CounterDraw- · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Having heard about all the dock-bricking that's been going on since 5.0 update and not wanting to lose my saves, how risky is it to use a power bank (like this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0156HCJQO/) to charge the switch?

What should I look out for as risk factors in a powerbank? I've heard that PowerDelivery ports and/or "smart" charging ports (that can transfer any kind of data) can brick the switch, although it's supposed to support PD. Is USB A-C safer than C-C or vice versa? Also is there much difference in charging cables?

u/skeeterou · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

u/GamerKingFaiz · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

u/Fents_Post · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Anker branded cables and charging blocks are always a great option. Look for an Anker charger that supports fast charging. They also sell car chargers that support fast charging too.

Here is an Anker that supports quick charge: https://www.amazon.com/Charge-Anker-Charger-Compatible-PowerPort/dp/B016LO4UTA/ref=sr_1_5?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1492565368&sr=1-5&keywords=anker+fast+charge

u/christmas_ape · 2 pointsr/AndroidQuestions

So the Note 4 has Quick Charge 2.0, so I would make sure your charger is compatible with that. A search on amazon should find you a good charging brick that is capable of that, and also make sure the cable is capable of QC2.0 (most cables in the past few years are capable, but again if you get a cheap cable from the grocery store, probably not going to cut it).

u/Taidoboy · 2 pointsr/Xiaomi

I'm going to assume you did not buy a QC3.0 charger? I've been using this one. There are probably cheaper alternatives out there but that is very likely why it takes you so long to get a full charge.

u/throwaway131072 · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Any charger that can provide at least 1.5A will work. You could see if your device manufacturer sells official replacement chargers, or get one from a reputable 3rd-party accessory manufacturer like Anker. As long as it's not some $3 piece of garbage that will burn out after a few minutes of use, you won't have this problem.

Here's a link to one in the ~3A range, assuming you have a quality cable: http://www.amazon.com/Anker-Compatible-PowerPort-Wireless-Charging/dp/B016LO4UTA

Where have you heard that at? Considering LG does not sell the chargers separately, 99% of any solution to charging (Car, Office, ETC) relies on 3rd party chargers.

Even Google themselves, don't sell a LG branded charger.. https://store.google.com/collection/accessories

I have tried to find a LG charger months ago before giving up and getting this charger https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016LO4UTA/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and a USB A-C cord.

That seems a little long to me. The included charger died on me after five days and I'm using this as a replacement:


This past weekend it charged my phone from 0 to 100% in 97 minutes. I don't think that's any faster or slower than the included charger was, but it lived such a brief life I can't be certain.

I bought this Anker before I found this subreddit and the spreadsheet. It works fine but does not rapid charge, I don't think it's USB-PD.

I then bought this Nekteck after looking at the spreadsheet just after people said to not buy the Belkin. It does rapid charge but according the notes on the spreadsheet does not support USB-PD. It's kind of a no name brand though and I don't really trust it long term to be honest.

I just bought this other Anker which should arrive tomorrow so we'll see how well it compares.

Either way I'm going to end up selling 2 chargers on Craigslist very soon. Maybe I'll just cave and sell all 3 and drop $100 on this Kanex or $140 on this MOS Go battery bank and hope no news comes out about how shit it is.

Honestly battery problems really caused me a lot of stress so if you're anything like that, just spend $50 and get it replaced at a phone repair store. Then it won't matter about getting a charger. If your battery is randomly dying, then chargers are just a waste of money.

There are actually a ton of good type C car chargers out there, or at least a hardwired type C cable with an additional type A plug for everything else. You won't get rapid charging using type A to C.

Reposting because my self post was removed...

Wall of text incoming...

After spending a good portion of my weekend researching USB-C PD, Quickcharge, the effects of cable gauge on amperage, etc., I think I finally understand USB charging over USB A and USB C via both PD and QuickCharge.

Before my current HTC 10, which is a Quick Charge 3.0 device, I had a Pixel and, prior to that, a Nexus 5X. So my entire experience with USB C charging was via USB Power Delivery, which worked very well. USB C AC adapters and USB C-C cables always quick charged my devices, presumably at 15w(3a/5v). Whenever I used a different charger, usually a USB-A brick with an A-C cable, they charged around 10w(2a/5v) or 5w (1a/5v); i.e. normal USB charging speeds.

Quick Charge 3.0 over USB-C has thrown a bit of a wrench into that. From what I can tell, QC 3.0 tops out at 19.5w, but supports a range of voltages at 1.5a, 2a, and 3a to maximize charging speed and efficiency. QC3 is connector agnostic and should work over over USB A, C, and micro. QC3.0 over USB-C is not strictly within USB-C spec, but as long as it is implemented safely, does not seem to cause any issues.

However, what's really throwing me for a loop is this Anker product here and article #1 and article #2.

First, the Anker charger is a USB-C charger that simultaneously claims to be QC3.0 certified AND claims to deliver full charging speeds to the Nexus USB-C PD devices and warns that it will not quick charge the HTC 10 and LG G5, which are both QC3.0 devices. According to EVERYTHING I've stated and read, this should not be possible.

Also, the first article says that the HTC 10 is capable of charging via a standard USB C-C connection at 10w(2a/5v). Is this newsworthy? Is this truly USB-C Power Delivery? I was under the impression that PD defined power profiles from 3a-5a, up to 100watts. As far as I can tell, any device, power delivery or not, should be able to pull 2a if supported by the device and cable.

Finally, the second article states that the HTC 10 does pull 15w(3a/5v) over USB PD, but doesn't do so "well." Is this then proof that the HTC 10 does in fact fully support USB PD over proper chargers?

Any information that can help me sort all this out would be greatly appreciated. That said, I've purchased a USB-C amperage meter, have 3 different USB A-C cables, a mix of USB-A power adapters and plan to purchase some USB-C cables and chargers to test as well (sold my previous ones with my Nexus and Pixel devices.)

Type-C to Type-C cords ftw, I'm actually not sure on this. I don't know how anker made a type c brick with quick charge 3.0.

u/BasicUserAccount42 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I can't speak on how it will hold up in the long-term, or if it will degrade the battery life of my phone more quickly, but it charges at much higher throughput for its weight than for any of the 20ish chargers I tested, with the exception of the Moto TurboPower 30Watt, which charged my Motorola TurboPower Pack @ 28 Watts from 0% to about 30% before dropping down to 15Watts until 80%, and then trickle charged. I measured power usage using a "Kill A Watt" device and far too much time.

The Anker Devices I tested seemed to only deliver at around 6-8 Watts of charging throughput for my phone. Given that I'm using a Motorola, it uses a "TurboCharger" spec and doesn't use the QC3.0 spec, so I'm not sure if the Anker Devices avoided charging at higher power rating because they are true to QC3.0 communication protocol, or because of some other reason.

The other charger that I found to work quite well for the weight was this one. I can't find my notes, but think it was around 0.9 oz to 1.2 oz. Because I wanted my charger to charge both the battery and the phone simultaneously, and didn't want to rely on two outlets, I went for the Lyilin charger.

I'm super happy with my phone + charger setup right now (Moto Z Play w/ Moto TurboPower Pack), which loses around 10% per day in airplane mode with pretty frequent topographic map checking (turning the phone off at night fucks this up unless you decouple the battery). The Moto PowerPack effectively brings the battery capacity to 180%, and when simultaneously charging the PowerPack and the phone, I can get to 80% on the phone and 80% on the battery in about 30 minutes. So, I'm pretty sure I can get about 10-12 days of more-than just navigation phone use out of this setup while backpacking before charging, which can be done in less than the amount of time it takes me to resupply. This means I get a very solid kindle device or music device out of my phone if I so choose.

The other reason I settled on my phone + battery combo is that I wear pants, so I just drop my phone in my side pocket for easy access for navigation, photos, etc. As a worn item, I never need to feel the weight from an external battery.

u/dty06 · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

There's a bit of confusion right now over charging specs and speeds and some other things. Not sure if anyone has compiled a list of proper chargers for the P2/P2XL yet (correct me if I'm wrong!).

However from experience, the two most reliable brands are Aukey and Anker. I have an Anker charger sitting on my desk right now. I bought it for my Nexus 6P and use it for my P2XL now.

This is the one I bought:

u/MissingLintRoller · 2 pointsr/iphone

Can’t find the one I have but it’s like this one. You do need a USB C to lightning cable from apple though.

u/MegaPorkachu · 2 pointsr/dogswithjobs

I've had this one for about 1.5 years now. RavPower Customer Service is really good, better than other companies that do the same thing.

I bought it direct and actually thought mine was defective in the first few days of getting it but found out that my USB wall chargers were 1A, which charges it much slower. I asked them for a 2.4A and they sent me one free of charge. The 2.4A wall charger charges it full in 8-10h.

It charges my iPhone X about 7-8 times on a full charge, and with the iPhone 4 I had before I got the X I charged the bank once a month or once/3w. I bought it because it was the best value for the capacity and port amount, but there are better quality ones out there if you desire quality over everything.

It's pretty big, but I keep it in a backpack while threading the wire through the earphone holes. If you want something to fit in your pocket this isn't the one to go for, but I charge it once a week (and only charging my phone from the battery bank).

u/RaveDigger · 2 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

Some of the older Garmin units use AA batteries. I have a Garmin eTrex Vista HCx that's maybe 10 years old and it takes AA batteries. They'll last about 24 hours while the unit is on, but you can carry extra batteries with you and swap them out when they need to be replaced. I don't know of anywhere to buy one of them nowadays, but if you could find one used, it would probably be cheap. I've used mine for hiking, backpacking, and motorcycling for 10 years and it still works just as well as the day I got it. It's not particularly fancy though.

If you get a device that is charged via USB, you could get a battery bank to recharge the GPS while you're away from power. Something like this would charge a GPS device many times.

The other options are a Delorme InReach or a Spot device which another poster mentioned. They last quite a bit of time, but also require a monthly service contract.

Looks like a sweet project! I bet you know all about tnttt.com. I've spent dozens of hours in awe at the builds on that site.

If you're only planning to run a few LED lights and charge our phone, might I suggest using a couple portable Li ion battteries. They're cheap, have plenty of juice, and require no fancy installation or wiring. They're chargeable at home, in a coffee shop, from your cigarette lighter, or from a small portable solar panel.

Keep us updated!

u/65dustin · 2 pointsr/NewOrleans

I know you weren't asking for a review, but these things are next-to-useless in an actual emergency. The batteries in these things are tiny; they barely give you a 20% charge. Which would be fine except the solar panel on it is only enough to maintain the clock on it. If you run it with the radio on in the sunshine it dies after about an hour. They're only useful as radios and when totally dead you still have to crank it constantly just to listen to the radio. It's not enough power.

Get a big USB power bank maybe? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G1XH46M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_aeQjybY0KK1KH

u/fisherrider · 2 pointsr/bicycletouring

We just (September 2016) did kind of a similar ride down the Cascades from Klamath Falls to Truckee, and what you're bringing looks very similar to what we had. Some notes based on your list:

  • Nights got down to the 30s (though it may be warmer in Washington?). I was happy to have a 20 degree sleeping bag; another guy we met along the way found it rather cold in a less-insulated bag.

  • I'd only bring 2 pairs of socks and 2 undies - you can wash the extra pair and put it under a bungee to dry during the day. I'd go with fewer shirts as well: 2 short sleeve / 1 long sleeve is probably enough. I actually brought like 4 jerseys and 4 short sleeve shirts, and only used 3 jerseys and 2 shirts. Why 2 tights? In case one gets wet?

  • YMMV, but I'd much prefer a down jacket to just a vest - my arms are what get cold!

  • I like having a bladder rather than a third bottle - less space when you know you can get water along the way, and big ones can hold 3+ liters for when you suspect you can't get water.

  • If the solar charger works for you, great. I read up on them a bit and it seemed like they were unreliable at best. Instead I went for a large-capacity battery (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01G1XH46M) which is less bulky but perhaps heavier.

    I also liked keeping things organized in gallon ziplocks and / or lightweight dry bags.

    Regardless, have a blast!

u/pjw724 · 2 pointsr/lgg6

I use this Seneo with my G6:


It's dual coil, seems fast enough for a wireless charger. Holds the phone at a nice angle.
Some good reviews from other G6 owners.


One thing to bear in mind about wireless chargers.. the phone won't be using Quick Charge for variable voltage/current 'gentle' charging. Battery temps are higher with inductive charging.

And the charger does not shut itself off @ 100% as many assume.. it will keep going until the battery controller terminates charging, which is usually a couple full hours beyond terminal battery voltage (4.36 on the G6), as will the wired charger. I wouldn't make a habit of leaving a QC phone on a charger overnight, wired or wireless. Kinda defeats the purpose of the battery-preserving QC tech.

Another thing about a wireless charger.. it won't increment the charge cycle count, which is the key indicator of battery age/lifetime. At least it doesn't on my G6, I expect that's generally the case.


Here's a dual-coil Seneo with an On/Off button. Allows use of the charger as a stand without continually charging the phone.


u/brp · 2 pointsr/samsung

This for your phone and maybe something else beside it for the watch.

If you need the QC 3.0 power brick (The Samsung QC 2.0 brick does NOT power this charger to wireless fast charge), then get this.

I've actually not connected my wireless chargers to fast chargers purposefully to charge slower as I have them setup on my desk and bedside, where all I need is a trickle charge.

u/formless63 · 2 pointsr/functionalprint

Nice work! This looks great! I just ordered a carriage plate that will hopefully have me back up and printing soon.

That said, just a quick heads up that I had an identical looking charger I used to use next to my bed, until one night I woke up and smelled burning plastic and realized it had melted into my night stand. I switched back to a wired charger thereafter. I still use wireless on my desk and other places I'm observing it, but be careful while you're sleeping!

I know my case is likely fairly rare. But these things as overnight chargers freak me out now.

u/read-plz · 2 pointsr/iphone

Anker is a highly reputable brand and sells a well priced qi charger for around 20 USD. Would check it out on amazon.


I didn’t get the faster wireless charger because it also requires a more powerful charge adaptor which brings total cost to around 50 USD.


It also isn’t confirmed at this point in time whether Apple will support fast charge for 3rd party chargers, so it’s a bit of a gamble right now as to whether you’ll be able to take advantage of the faster charge rate. Even then it’s not much faster compared to the first wireless charger if you can hook it up to an iPad charge adaptor.

Yep- wireless chargers definitely charge slower than cable, even if you buy the iPhone wireless charger may.

It depends on the controller the wireless charger has. I’ve had my anker charger for the past 2 weeks and been very happy with it. They have good technology to manage battery charge once it’s full, so wouldn’t worry about it affecting battery. Can’t speak to the other chargers though.

All in all, I use the wireless charger at work, it charges slower but the lack of cable makes it easier to pick up and use when needed, and is good for a top up during the day. However, I use the cable at night to charge because it’s quicker and I’m not moving around as much as I am in the office.

not too familiar with the restore, i think you can get away with restoring with the SAM method...

you might be able to find a sim card on ebay... i bought a China one from ebay, but they dont come as nano though.

u/noahajac · 2 pointsr/PickAnAndroidForMe

We aren't Motorola so unfortunately we can't answer the first question.

However for the SIM situation, you can either get a new SIM or cut your old one. There are 2 ways to cut a SIM, the easiest way is to get a cutting device like this. The other option is to use a template like the one on this page and very carefully cut it with scissors.

u/JaymusLonestar · 2 pointsr/nexus6
u/Dopamin3 · 2 pointsr/tmobile

> Notice that what I'm really asking is--can it physically be done

Yes, physically you can do it with a SIM cutter like that. SIMs are all essentially the same just in different sizes. You can cut a SIM down, you can also "pad" a smaller size SIM to fit in a bigger SIM slot.

u/pi3832v2 · 2 pointsr/tifu

BTW, you can buy a Sim Card Cutter for ca. $10.

u/brooklandia1 · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

You can cut a standard or micro sim down to a nano sim, I did this when I went from a GS4 to an unlocked Nexus 5X, on Verizon. They are $8 on Amazon, just search Nano Sim cutter or https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009P16FKY/

Was pretty easy for me, but ymmv.

u/g_petto · 2 pointsr/VerizonUDP

I used this - Aerb Sim Card Cutter with Nano-Micro, Nano-Standard, Micro-Standard Sim Adapters for Cellphones, Black. It was the best $7.99 I spent in a long time. Read the comments for tips, main one is to secure the sim tray in the device with your finger when you do the cut. I practiced on an old sim to get a feel for how much pressure was required.

The advice from /u/JulesJam is a bit quicker...

u/ImNotYourFckinBro · 2 pointsr/nexus6

You'll be fine. You'll need a nano sim. If you have an older phone with a micro, you'll need to cut it down (or use a tool like this). Either way, turn off your old phone, take out the sim. Pop it in your Nexus 6 and it will activate. I've had mine for a few weeks now with no issues (in terms of service or plan).

u/nickreed · 2 pointsr/MotoX

I currently have mine on Straight Talk. I originally had ST with ATT , but recently switched to T-Mobile (it's easy to switch back and forth if you want, assuming you get the T-Mobile MotoX or the GSM Developer Edition model). One thing I would suggest getting first, if you decide to switch, is a SIM Punch. The reason being, Straight Talk only sells micro SIM cards, but the MotoX takes a nano SIM. The punch makes it easy to convert a micro SIM to a nano SIM. Otherwise, you have to cut it by hand.

After switching your account over, the only thing you have to do is key in Straight Talk's APN carrier settings (they will email you what to key in, or you can google it), and you're set!

MMS works, 4G LTE works (except for with Verizon), and everything else works the same. Only difference is the phone bill!

u/marqueetom · 2 pointsr/lgv20

This Kenu mount is the best one you can get. Works perfectly even with a case...

u/dlerium · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I love Wirecutter but at the same time I feel like they're not as "expert-y" as they should be. They tend to dive into things more than your average consumer, but at the same time they get criticized heavily by enthusiasts for not looking at the right models.

I don't consider myself an enthusiast for cell phone holders, but I've spent enough of my own money to try to figure things out. Kenu in general runs pretty good but its not the best either. For instance I tried their air vent holder. It's a standard holder. Nothing special. In fact with phones going glass (e.g. iPhone XS) and heavier than ever, these holders start to not work out so much. I found a better air vent holder (IMO at least) that uses two arms to grab the air vents. The higher Amazon reviews also help with my confirmation bias to reaffirm that this new vent holder is better.

The same happened with their CD slot holder recommendation. I'm a huge fan of CD slot holders, but the one they recommended was an iOttie one which uses a magnetic mount. That makes it hard if you switch up phones or multiple people switch up their phones being mounted because you need to attach something to your phone. Their previous recommendation had a weird clamp mechanism and it didn't hold the phone well. I went back to my previous personal pick which uses a straight forward spring loaded clamp.

The fact that their picks have disappointed me twice in this field makes me a bit upset. Bottom line is I would recommend those two holders I ended up liking (both the air vent and CD slot holder). Those both are better than the Wirecutter picks IMO. I would have thought a company dedicated to buying and reviewing products would probably be able to find at least the same products I tried if not better ones.

u/Fire2Ice · 2 pointsr/uberdrivers

Driving a 2009 Civic, I picked up a Kenu Airframe to mount to the far left vent. It helped keep my phone from overheating in summer to keep it in front of the ac vent.
My gf has an iOttie dash mount which also works much better than the older dash mounts i'd tried in years past, although i prefer the kenu airframe because it keeps the phone closer to key in things.

Best of luck.


u/shyboot · 2 pointsr/Miata

This works well with my Galaxy S5 on the vent. You can't run the heat through the top vents while using it (I typically just run it on my feet anyways though).

u/brewingcode · 2 pointsr/roadtrip

My tips:

Things to bring

  • Bring a USB Cigarette car charger - Link
  • Cell phone dash holder - Link
  • Headphone cable - Link
    (Listen to your jams while driving)
  • Some snacks (stop at Trader Joe's or similar store)
  • Bottle water
  • Map of the region (Yes we have internet.. but not everywhere)
  • Plastic bags as you acquire them (at the grocery store, gas station, etc.. work great for garbage)

    Tips for Rental Cars

  • Don't get the insurance
  • Don't get the insurance
  • Get there 20-30 minutes early and be nice to the guy/gal. It's going to be a busy time for them and they will have a lot of angry people. Usually if you're nice they will upgrade you to a large vehicle because they have too many reservations and not enough stock on lot.
  • Don't rent from the airport, always go to a lot off site.
  • Be sure to do the walk around, it's as much for you as them.
  • Do not pre-pay gas. Just fill it up to where it was before dropping it off. I always keep an eye out for the closest gas station before I leave.
  • Double check you got all your stuff. Even if you have to make a list. I've found all sorts of stuff in cars that even the detailers missed.

    I travel/road trip quite a bit; If you've got any other questions, please let me know.

Depends on how much you want to spend. Lifeproof makes some waterproof cases that I see people rave about on this subreddit. I personally took something like this to Hawaii. They're okay. My phone stayed dry but the pictures it took weren't super clear, probably because the plastic material obstructs the camera. Definitely not good to publish but definitely good enough to have a nice memory of it. I would recommend buying a more sturdy lanyard to go with it.

u/AnonymousWannabe · 2 pointsr/Swimming

A phone in a water proof case is exactly what I do. I have a clear waterproof pouch that I put my phone in and a makeshift mount made of a large binder clip with large bolts zip tied to the arms. You can adjust the angle of the shot by moving the arms. The bolts weigh the phone down and act as feet so your phone stays upright.

I find that the front facing camera works best because it's a wider angle and you can see your shot as you adjust your phone on the bottom of the pool.

u/readit_getit · 2 pointsr/galaxynote4

Thanks. I was ready to purchase it and then saw this review

I checked out the Joto one and it did look very similar, which gives some credence to what this guy says.

The problem is that some people on the bag you mentioned complained about water damage, while no one on the Joto bag has thus far.

I am now very worried and am beginning to forget about submerging the phone under water all together. Last thing I want is to damage it.

thoughts? is this 'purchasing review' an actual practice on Amazon?

u/frojoe27 · 2 pointsr/sailing

I think you'll struggle to find a pfd with a waterproof pocket.

Even if you find one I would suggest doing what others say and getting a small waterproof pouch to put in your pfd pocket because the waterproof part would probably wear out way before the rest of the pfd, so better to be able to replace it separately for a few dollars.

Also the most important party of a pfd is how comfortable it is, better to be able to shop for one based on that than based on if it has a waterproof pocket.

I use something like this, but not this one exactly: https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Waterproof-JOTO-Cellphone-Samsung/dp/B00LBK7OSY/

u/coolsideofyourpillow · 2 pointsr/Swimming

You'll want a dedicated waterproof mp3 player because the Bluetooth in your phone only has a range of about 10m. If you still want your phone poolside, just get one of these.

I don't know what your budget is, but I've used these and they're pretty great. Snug fit, doesn't come off from water resistance, and audio quality is good.

u/ravenito · 2 pointsr/Cruise

Since I like to snorkel I bought a waterproof bag to keep cell phone, ship's card, some cash, passport, and a credit card in when going ashore. This way I could always keep my stuff on me even when I'm in the water. It's so nice to have everything you need hanging around your neck and not have to worry about losing it or it going missing when you're not paying attention. I bought this one and it has served me very well but there are lots out there to choose from.

u/KidCadaver · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

As far as phones go, I have a few of these. I've taken my phone with me every time I've gone boarding, and I even used that bag to go snorkling and use my phone's camera underwater in Belize. When I used to push into the ocean from the beach with my board I'd have several waves hitting me and waist-high water, so the phone would always be submerged for that duration, and I've never had the bag fail. I DO test it regularly. You can never test a dry bag enough!!

For my camera, I'm testing out this bag before seeing if I need a better/more expensive type. Today was really successful! Definitely have to finagle a bit and have your settings at least close to where you think you'll want them the whole time, but overall it was a success! I would NOT take this bag underwater though. I would invest in an actual hard underwater case for that. But since I don't actually ever intend on the bag getting more than just a little wet from splashes or my hands, it works great.

u/icecream21 · 2 pointsr/tmobile

T-Mobile doesn't care if you have a Verizon phone or not. As long as it's unlocked you're good to go. Also iPhone 6 Plus isn't band 12 compatible so depending on your area, you may not be able to take advantage of T-Mobiles entire network. iPhone 6s, 7, & SE are band 12 compatible.

Prepaid sim is the only way to try it out. Looks like you can get the some airtime and the sim card for under $20. (you can probably re-use the sim if you like the service.)



Make sure you have a phone with Band 12 (700Mhz).

u/Ted1337 · 2 pointsr/tmobile

You already have an activate account, number, and the $30 plan. You just need to perform a SIM swap. You can go to a T-Mobile store to do this (but the SIM will cost $20) or you can get a $4.99 SIM starter kit from Best Buy or Amazon (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/t-mobile-complete-sim-starter-kit-white/8699899.p?skuId=8699899 or https://www.amazon.com/T-Mobile-Prepaid-Complete-SIM-Kit/dp/B00LPPHHFK, call into customer service, and perform a SIM swap. Do NOT buy a new SIM from the T-Mobile website; these are not meant for replacements, and will come pre-activated. While they can be deactivated and reused, it's a hassle and easier to just get a new SIM put on your account at a T-Mobile store, or get a blank, inactive SIM from Amazon or Best Buy.

But that will cost more than $15 in total, so I don't know.

u/mightymos · 2 pointsr/oneplus

Best thin and low profile case is the Diztronic Ultra TPU Matte case. Hands down. It offers the drop protection of a TPU, yet it's the case that adds the least amount of bulk.

u/crushingyen · 2 pointsr/oneplus

Slim, keeps the form factor of the phone, and you have two options between their regular, or the ultra version, which is a bit more protective on the corners and a bit thicker, but still slim nonetheless.

Where would you like the mount? Suction cupped to the windshield? Clipped in the vent? Adhered to the dashboard? I personally like phone mounts that adhere to the dashboard. Is your dashboard hard plastic or is it soft vinyl? If it is vinyl, you would need a vent or windshield mount.

I used the old version of this mount for many years. It didn't have wireless charging at the time. It was a solid, robust mount. It didn't feel cheap and flimsy like most mounts. I recommend it.

u/AlexusN · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

You can't use both - you either use that metal plate on the back OR the wireless charging. Metal completely blocks the electromagnetic field that current version of wireless charging uses.

If you really want to use the phone mounted somewhere on dashboard (which I personally never do) - you can try something like this instead of magnetic mounts:

Or, like you said, just give up on wireless charging altogether.

u/namtaru_x · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

This is what I use, and it works great.


Only caveats are if it's hot outside the phone can get SUPER hot. Generally I don't have any issues, but on 80*F+ days I usually unplug the charger.

Also, I don't expect the wireless charging to charge fast, so when I actually need fast charging I just move the cable from the dock to the phone.

These are issues with any wireless chargers, not just the iOttie.

Like the other commenter, I only have a Commuter case. This case is flawless. I bet it could fit a Defender.

u/tigerscomeatnight · 2 pointsr/galaxynote4

It's a little expensive, but I got this one, just watch out using the provided extra "pad", it's glue and will stay on permanently, I use just the suction cup and it only falls off once or twice a year when the temperature is over 90F.

u/mattbuford · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I have this and am reasonably happy with it:


It isn't magnetic, but it is quick and easy to insert and remove. To put the phone, you simply push it against the back and the jaws snap shut. To remove it, you press on the right and left side bars sticking out, and that pushes the jaws open, which then lock.

With music playing via bluetooth and the screen on displaying Google Maps for navigation, charging is kind of a break-even thing. During the day, when auto-brightness is cranking the screen up, I slowly lose charge (like 1% per hour). At night, when the screen dims and Maps goes into night mode, I gain a few percent per hour.

Occasionally, when I leave my car in direct sun for long periods of time, I come back to find the suction has released and have to re-attach it, but this isn't a big deal.

It looks like the price has gone up. I paid $36 for it in August 2016.

u/S-Aint · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS6

Yep, I bought one for the wife's van and liked it so much I decided to buy one for my car. We both have the S6. Her's with a case and mine naked and the wireless charger works perfectly on both phones!


u/data_wrangler · 2 pointsr/nexus6

I use this qi charger in my car with the N6. It's more than sufficient to keep the phone running maps and music/podcasts without losing charge. Admittedly, if I get into the car with low battery it won't pick up much charge if I'm using it. It'll charge if I turn the screen off, so at least there's that.

For convenience factor, though, I love it. Just press the phone into the dock and it's charging and right in my eyeline while driving. When ready to get out just squeeze the release and it pops into my hand.

u/gettingerr14 · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I had this for my GS6 (it includes wireless charging which obviously I no longer use) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UXS7958/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The one click in and easy out is the most wonderful thing. Highly reccommend any of their mounts. Definitely worth the price.

Edit: Don't waste your money on this one since you don't need the wireless charging, but go with the brand

Not OP, but this is the one I use in my car for my Nexus 6. Only problem with it was I had to use the micro USB to cigarette lighter cable that came with it and it's a little short. I bought one of these to make up the difference.

I've installed a few of these, and in my opinion they just aren't worth the extra cost.

Hey, kind of off-topic, but what are you planning to use for USB? If you’re going to pack a mess of chargers, consider getting this bad boy along with a cord that matches.

I used it on my last vacation. Set it up in the middle of the apartment we rented, and everybody plugged in their cell phones, vapes, etc. 2.4A per port, I highly recommend it.

u/fairlydecent · 2 pointsr/Austin
u/bastardpeaches · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

This one: Amazon but probably any mag mount with a vent clip will work. The clip part screws into the round plastic that holds the magnets. You may have to find a longer screw if you want to screw into something thicker.

I'd avoid the ones with the ball-swivel mount for this method. Those sockets or ball sections are molded in, so they'll be harder to attach to a flat surface. I didn't need the adjustability since the panavise bracket already tilts it to the correct angle, and I preferred the super low profile.

u/CommondeNominator · 2 pointsr/Audi

Fair enough, definitely easy and error-proof. Cords just bug me when I'm driving, I don't even have my phone charging unless it's nearly dead. Having a manual trans doesn't help.

I came up with a different solution though.

I used two of these nifty magnetic mounts and put the two rectangular metal plates on two corners of my iPad, placing the mounts in about the center of each of the middle airvents. The result works really well.. Makes it easy to just hand over the iPad to anyone who wants to control the music. Also have an apple music subscription, I think that covers about anything you want to listen to.

I realize this won't work for everyone, but this would work equally as well on any tablet (let's face it if you're driving an Audi you can afford a $150 nexus 7) and with any streaming audio service or just a very well stocked library of songs.

u/Dawg605 · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

I have one of these and love it.


It uses magnets, so you can put it in any orientation easily and quickly. The magnets are strong, so you're phone definitely won't fall off. It's also quick and easy to pop it on or off. You can either put the magnet directly on the phone or inside of a case. I recommend a case so you don't get any sticky residue on the back of your phone. It's also only 7 bucks.

as for the case i went with the tough armor case in gold. For taking it in and out for VR it's not bad at all, i dont even take the hard plastic off to get the phone out.

Found this when i was case shopping and it works very well (i dont have the magnet secured to the case, just floating between the hard and soft parts of the case)

u/Earguy · 2 pointsr/Cameras

GorillaPod makes one that is suitable for a point and shoot.

Then there's this for only $800 without a head. But it seems like it's exactly what you have in mind.

You might be able to DIY by removing the feet of the tripod and shoving a cell phone magent mount like this and securing with gaffer tape. I have one of these, and the magnet is quite strong. If used at a higher speed I'd be double-sure and use tie-downs on it.

u/mattymck · 2 pointsr/cars

a decent phone mount is what you need. If you have a case on your phone get a magnetic mount. You stick a thin metal plate on the inside of your case so that the magnets of the mount stick to the phone.

this is the one i use.

Just don't buy anything that glues to the dash/window (including the Scosche). It will unglue or make a mess from the heat if you're in a hot southern climate. I didn't like the vent mounts either but for the new model you don't have any good dash locations. I went with the spigen. It has a soft rubber surface and won't scratch your vent and the magnetic disc is super thin, I've had a few cheap ones and the difference in quality is huge.

If you don't want to block the vent, get the Proclip, your budget should cover it.

> well they both use diff nano sims.

Sure. They could be coded differently in the system, but in the end they serve the same exact purpose, regardless of whether they're in an android phone or iPhone.

> the samsung comes on a red card (NFC kind)

Uhhhhh... NFC-specific SIMs don't really exist anymore. It used to be a thing in the past (for Softcard/ISIS), but they since moved on into integrating all NFC functions into the phone. My iPhone 7+ came in a Red 1FF -> 4FF SIM package.

> they def did not insert the sim they made into any phone (might have put it in a machine next to desk?)

Right, they just need the IMEI of a phone (any phone) so they can activate a SIM based on that phone's SIM size. They could have picked an iPhone 6 or Samsung S6 for Nano SIM size.

> current G4 are both working and no changes noticed in my verizon...

That's what I'm saying. Its a bit 'unusual' for them to 'pre-activate' a SIM. Usually when you walk into a store, they activate the new SIM, and the old SIM dies.

It sounds like the moment you put the SIM into a phone, your current SIM dies, and the new one activates (basically mimicking how the SIM ships in your phone pre-activated). Assuming that the SIMs you received are indeed pre-activated.

Next time consider:

You can try to cut your Sim by hand, but I wouldn't recommend it.

u/milan616 · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I bought this cutter tool for when I went from my Galaxy Nexus to Moto X 2013 and have since moved on to a few new phones and the SIM keeps on trucking. Also used it on my GF's SIM card and it's also working just fine!

One thing to note is that micro SIMs tend to be slightly thicker than nano SIMs, so you'll want to sand down the back side a bit otherwise it could get stuck in some phones.

u/defaults_are_shit · 1 pointr/tmobile

You can buy a cutout tool from Amazon for like 10 bucks. That's what I did when we took our 4 phones over to T-Mobile and had no issues. Just cut it down to the nano size.

u/dabug91 · 1 pointr/MotoX

You should be safe cutting it as long as you are careful. Most of the data on the LTE SIM card sits right in the very middle apparently, so if you only barely nip the edges in the process, it should still work. However, you should be able to easily go into a store and be given a new nano-SIM for free. Otherwise, here is a nice tool that will let you cut Mini and Micro SIM cards into Nano-SIM size. It also includes a small bit of sandpaper, and 2 adapters for going back to Micro-SIM or Mini-SIM if you need to.

Amazon Link

u/minnesnowta · 1 pointr/tmobile

$25. T-Mobile stopped allowing 3rd party stores (best buy, etc) to sell their sim cards (was $5 at best buy).



You can buy sim cards on ebay - I've seen them for around $5. You can also try cutting your existing SIM card to fit the smaller size - you can find templates online that you can print and use to cut. Some stores might even have a SIM cutter tool that will do it for you, but I think they discourage doing that.

You can also buy a sim cutter on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Aerb-Nano-Micro-Nano-Standard-Micro-Standard-Cellphones/dp/B009P16FKY/ , but just buying a nano sim from ebay would be cheaper.

here's what I've been happily using & recommend:

  • this car charger. It will fully charge your phone while using navi with the screen-on at all times, if the charging cable is plugged in the NA-marked port and no other device is being charged at the same time. I've been wanting to experiment with a charging-only cable such as this one to see if it would help with better/faster charging and the possibility of charging a second device at the same time.

  • kenu airframe car mount. very simple, small, well-made, and works pretty much universally on all types of air vents. i frequently rent a variety of cars and have yet to stumble upon a model where the kenu wouldn't mount properly. holds the phone perfectly and takes a couple of seconds to mount.

    as far as actual navi, GMaps has been unreliable for me during the last couple of roadtrips. I only used it because I knew I had a backup (standalone navi). it would crash silently and I'd have to pull over, and set it up again (and hope there is data/coverage because if there isn't, i'm SOL). this happened at least 4 times during a 6-7 hour drive. for this reason, have either a standalone navi backup, or another app that you can rely on, such as nav free or CoPilot, both of which i've heard good things about.

    have fun!

I started with one of the CD slot mounts but it blocked the hazard light button, which I wasn't a fan of. This I have mounted to the vent next to the steering wheel so it's close, and the phone gets to cool down when the AC is on! (Not so good in winter with heat on.) It works very well overall... easy to use, reach, handle. Small enough to take with me if I switch cars, and rather durable. Been using it two years now.

u/Sad_Ballsack · 1 pointr/Lyft

I absolutely love the Kenu Airframe. It clips into an airvent and stays put. I've had mine for about a year and it still works just as well as the first day I got it. Plus, at $25, it's relatively inexpensive in comparison with some of the other mount choices.

u/Law_Doge · 1 pointr/subaru

Kenu Airframe. It attaches to the vent below the nav/radio. I've dealt with a lot of phone mounts, and this one is by far the best.

u/theprimeministr · 1 pointr/FocusST

There are plenty of options for mounting your phone, but I suppose it's a matter of what your preferences are (e.g., vent mount, CD slot mount, dash mount, other) in terms of obstructing certain things in the car.

I personally use a Kenu Airframe vent clip mount. I mount it on the left center vent which offers great visibility. I personally don't mind vent clip mounts as the A/C keeps my phone cool during the Summer months and it doesn't interfere with the nav display at all and is quite discreet.

If you're okay with using a case and/or sticking a magnet on your phone, then you could also consider the KUDA mount which offers a fairly OEM appearance.

u/djsubtronic · 1 pointr/FordFocus

I asked the exact same thing almost a year ago and this subreddit gave me the suggestion to get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Waterproof-JOTO-CellPhone-Motorola/dp/B00LBK7OSY/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1482528338&sr=8-5&keywords=dry+bags+iphone. Worked great - and we were highly amused by another young couple on St. Thomas that got into a big argument, pointing and yelling at us, about why they hadn't thought to do this and the husband was now stuck in the water with one hand overhead at all times to hold up his phone.

Something that seals around the phone but you can still use the touch screen. Bulky but it probably won't matter in a kayak, has a lanyard too. Also isn't specific to a single phone.

No, nowhere to lock things up. Leave almost everything in your hotel room. Get waterproof cases or dry bags for phone, room key, cash, etc. If you leave it on the beach, count on it being stolen.

u/PM_Me_Your_Clones · 1 pointr/technology

You can buy sim kits, just make sure you get the right one for the phone you have. I always buy my phones outright from 3rd parties and then either get the sim from Amazon or the carrier (or just use my last sim, though obviously not applicable in your case). Then phone call to the new provider or pop into a store to get it activated and use it.

I don't know if the still offer this plan, but I'm on a T-Mobile pay as you go for like $30/month (unlimited data and texting but only 100 minutes/month, works for me because I don't talk on the phone that much) and vs. my wife's $100+/month AT&T bill I can buy a new phone once a year and still spend less.




Note - you'll need to make sure your new phone works on your new network, 2G stuff uses the same frequencies but for the higher bandwidth stuff I believe that T-Mobile and AT&T are different. It's gotten better in the past few years though, so I could be mistaken.

I'm actually in the process of moving a line from Cricket to this plan (took it to Cricket as the "free" 5th line, but bringing it back, due to their change in group discounts). As I had Amazon Prime, I figured I'd get this for the quicker shipping: https://www.amazon.com/T-Mobile-Prepaid-Complete-SIM-Kit/dp/B00LPPHHFK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1511677258&sr=8-2&keywords=tmobile+sim

The SIM is also the same price through T-Mobile right now ($25 with a $15 instant rebate): https://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-phone/t-mobile-prepaid-3-in-1-sim-starter-kit?icid=WMD_PD_Q317HOWTOJ_8T6Z0Q7NYG9547 if you'd rather do that.

I'm not sure if the stores will honor that pricing, but basically you'd get a SIM kit, pop it in the phone, and follow the directions (they're summarized here): https://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-activate . You can port numbers over or just pick an area code to have a new number assigned from.

u/GrapesofWrath2019 · 1 pointr/minimalism

Phone I have Sony Xperia XZ Premium . Just noticed it's on sale for $550. 4K screen 64 gigs, stereo speakers. Battery lasts for days.. I like it. I think it has the same processor as the S8. You can add a second sim for world travel or stick in a SD card.

The S8/s8 plus is nice as well, I have a friend with one. I just wanted 4K screen for 4K vr'ing with my phone and went with the sony for that reason.

The T-Mobile $3 plan link

Sim kit link

Got the sim kit from Amazon, you call up T-mobile, put some money on the account and you're good to go.

I just call text and turned off data, on my third month with the phone and i'm paying about $7 a month on average. I use wifi at home, and we have free wifi at work (luckily). With an SD card you can load up music on the phone for offline listening and google lets you download maps for offline GPS navagation.

FYI: If you buy a T-Mobile SIM card from Best Buy or Amazon for $4.99 (you don't have to activate it), just stick it in your Nexus 5X (or in any T-Mobile or unlocked phone) and run Ookla Speedtests to check on T-Mobile coverage and data speeds at every location.

Thanks. Are you sure, that this will allow me to get back on my $30 plan ?? I ask as this plan is difficult to get into once you are in another plan. The way I did it last time was get a $30 sim with plan included starter pack from walmart.

I see this and this on amazon, the second having the same plan as I want, but more expensive that it should be. If what you're saying is right, I should be able to just get the first one.

u/exposetheheretics · 1 pointr/tmobile

I bought this 3-1 prepaid sim off amazon.


but am i understanding correctly that i still need to pay for service (pay as you go $3/month)? I only need 30 seconds to take the call and never again.

i'm on step six here for my adapter

this guy sounds like he did what i want to do only paid five for the card.

i'd ask over there but it takes a month to get a response in that inactive sub.

Choose the $30 month plan with 100 minutes/unlimited sms and mms/5g 4G(it says 4G but I believe it includes LTE too on this plan). 10/c minute after you use up all 100 minutes.

Since it's prepaid it's $30 flat.

u/iceardor · 1 pointr/nexus5x

If you're coming from a Nexus 5 and you use Google for your contact list, there really isn't much to lose getting a new card. $15 from T-Mobile website or in-store (they occasionally have deals, like free with new phone purchase from T-Mobile, 99cents, or free with no strings attached). If they don't have a sale right now, you could buy a $5 T-mobile univeral-size SIM kit from Amazon [1].

Mine took a week to arrive from T-Mobile.com (99¢ sale for pre-paid with SIM99 coupon code), so I decided to cut my Nexus 5's micro SIM card down with a kitchen knife and cutting board and it worked. Look up pictures on the internet of nano sims that have similar shaped gold contacts as yours, then cut to size, making sure to get the dog-eared corner correctly placed. You will need to remove almost all the non-gold plastic, bevel out the bottom, and cut some of the gold. Keep cutting until it fits. The circuit in the card is much smaller than the footprint of the gold contacts. I had little to lose, since my contacts were backed up with Google. If I destroyed the SIM card, I could either buy a $15 kit in-store or wait a few extra days for the 99¢ card to arrive.

You could buy a cutter for $15, but why,? Will you ever have a micro sim again when everything these days is nano sim?

In my opinion the Diztronic case is rather thin and it definitely has a lip to protect the glass.
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Diztronic-Matte-Black-Flexible-OnePlus/dp/B00MBS1NA0/

u/lutgholein · 1 pointr/oneplus

For my old OPO, I tried on a bunch of cases, including Tudia, Cruzerlite, Diztronic, Diztronic Ultra, and Ringke FUSION. I ended up sticking with Diztronic Ultra, but the problem with all those cases was that they all covered up the sexy Sandstone finish.

So I got the Sandstone case this time for my OP3, and also the Black Apricot to change it up once in a while.

As for screen protectors, right now I have the official OP3 tempered glass screen protector. The quality is really nice and it feels good to the touch, but it really bothers me that it doesn't cover the whole screen, leaving a significant gap on the edges.

The whole point of tempered glass screen protectors is to absorb shock if the phone is dropped, so that the protector cracks leaving the phone screen/digitizer intact, so if this phone gets dropped on its corners or edges, this tempered glass screen protector wouldn't do much to help.

Another issue is that the official screen protector is narrower than the width of the screen, the gap it leaves is bigger than the side bezels, so it makes the display look weird.

I ordered the PLESON full screen tempered glass today, but somebody was telling me in another thread that it sucks, so IDK, we'll see how it goes.

u/luvablemarmot · 1 pointr/oneplus

I purchased a Pelosi Flip cover case which I really liked for a few minutes until I couldn't get my phone out of the case. Switched to the Diztronic case and its fantastic. Light, thin and easy to take on and off. Links to both cases below (also the places I got them from)

It sticks out ever so slightly. Hard to notice. I have a bumper on my phone too, so I can't actually notice it...

But my phone is uber protected with low cost and almost no inconvenience. Still looks great and low profile. If I sell mine, I can sell it as 'like new' which I did with my Nexus 5 - same protection.

You can also get wireless charging mounts that clamp to the phone instead of using a magnetic plate. I found this one on Amazon:


It includes a video showing how it works, and it even rotates! I want that so bad.

u/gt_ap · 1 pointr/windowsphone

I have several of this car mount/wireless charger. They worked great on my Nexus 6. Unfortunately I got a different phone without wireless charging so I cannot use that part of it. It is very convenient to just put it in and not have to worry about plugging in the charging cable. The suction cup sticks well, even to a textured dashboard.

u/typhoone · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

I know it's not magnetic but I love my iottie wireless charging dock.

u/enonyhousemouse · 1 pointr/nexus6

This is what I have. It expands and should work with most cases. You can pair it with a cupholder base (mine is Charger City).

u/exzeroex · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

As I was going through your requirements, I thought of my iOttie, until I got to wireless charging, but it looks like they have a wireless version.

From car.

I don't use the sticky pad they provide as I haven't felt the need to, sucks pretty hard.

u/BlankBB · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

The issue with the iOttie is that it is not fast wireless charging, but they do have a new version out.

I replaced my iOttie https://www.amazon.com/iOttie-HLCRIO132-Wireless-Standard-Charger/dp/B00UXS7958/

with this one - dodocool Qi Wireless Charger 10W 3-coil Fast Wireless Charging Car Mount: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XD7WJDL/

The dodocool has a goofy name but works well. It is able to charge my phone while using Spotify and Google Maps at the same time. FYI Waze does seem to use a bit more juice than Google Maps.

Also, I like how it has the vent clip style mount included as I never have had any luck with the suction cup base mounts staying put after a hot day.

u/iheartbrainz · 1 pointr/Nexus5

Is this what you're thinking you want? I guess it's not necessarily magnetic, but I have the non-Qi version and it does a fantastic job of holding onto my phone.

u/a7tex25 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I'm very specific about car docks and I'd definitely recommend this one.


I've been using it for a few months now in my Altima and it is BY FAR the best dock I've ever used. It's extremely simple to dock and remove your phone with one hand, the build quality is very good, configuring it to almost any angle is possible, the suction is strong, and best of all it has built in wireless charging (though I removed the wireless charging component in it and modified the mount to have a fast wireless charger instead).

There's also the non-wireless charging model for much cheaper, which is still a good item. My wife has it in her car and I've only used it a few times, but I feel that the dock is a little more shaky than the other one, maybe because there's less plastic because of the lack of wireless charging components.


u/TheLooongest · 1 pointr/lgv20

I use iOttie HLCRIO132 which has wireless charging (I used to have note5 )

Very happy with my Note 8. Got the Unlocked from Samsung directly:

Galaxy Note8 64GB (Unlocked)

Added 256GB SD card and this case:

Ztotop Armor Shield Shockproof Rugged Protective Case with Kickstand for Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) - Black / Black

Been using this wireless charger at home:

Spigen Essential F300W Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad with 3 Coils

And these in my vehicles:

iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless Qi Standard Car Mount Charger

The case works with both wireless chargers. I've had the phone for a couple of months and never needed to plug it in to charge. Battery has never gone below 40%, but I have no idea if I am above or below the average when it comes to using it. I use it extensively for reading, taking notes, and listening to music (via Bluetooth headphones). I take occasional pictures, which have come out really nice, and a couple of long videos.

Been very happy with the purchase, since I got $400 off the purchase price as a former Note 7 owner (turned in an old Galaxy S5). Because of that, I don't have contract to worry about, and since it's unlocked, I can switch carriers if I want to.

u/justarandomgeek · 1 pointr/CGPGrey

My Charging Solution:

USB Micro (grumble grumble, upgrade to C already!), USB-C, and Qi.

I have Qi chargers in various fixed places and just set the phone there as i enter and pick it up as I leave. I have one in my car for when i'm driving.

Pixel 2 XL has a C port, but I've replaced it for normal usage with a Qi pad on the back of the phone, which fits nicely inside the case. If I leave it off the charger entirely, I get >2 days. (Grumble Grumble Nexus line has Qi but Pixel line doesn't...)

Various devices on MicroUSB - Headset, speakers, keyboards, nearly every non-computer device that charges. Most of these devices can be pre-charged for weekend travel.

Pebble has a custom cable from USB A, but lasts ~4 days, so I can pre-charge for most weekend travel.

I have a power bank with 2 USB A ports and a USB C port, and Qi on the front face. It can also pass through power from either of it's input ports to any output.

I don't tend to do much computing when I travel, so I'm mostly down to the phone and it's cluster of peripherals. I don't currently have a laptop, but often borrow my dad's for travel, and it has a unique (Lenovo) charger.

For a day: I just take my devices.

For a weekend: I take the Qi battery pack.

For a heavy-usage weekend/longer: Qi battery back, USB C<->C cable, USB C wall charger (so far only travel within US, so that's easy...), USB A<->USB Micro. For longer than a weekend, Pebble cable.

In the future the watch will probably be Qi also, and I could see a lot of devices with sufficient surface area going Qi, and the rest going USB-C. IMHO, the solution to charging cables is to get rid of them all, in favor of ubiquitous wireless power.

Edit: Oh, and Apple is adopting Qi too, so it's going to be a standard on both sides!

Let me clarify. I even had an electrician come to both my home and office to verify there was no surge/electrical problems with my outlets.

Here is a list of the products I have purchased that either completely failed (won't charge, etc) or had partial failure such as at least one USB port go bad:

u/TheHozOpp1 · 1 pointr/AppleWhatShouldIBuy

Ok. Here we go! It’s impossible to tell you what the best of everything is, since the best for me, isn’t necessarily the best for you. So here’s my setup, and reasons why.

My iPhone XS is protected by one of two cases.

  1. Spigen Ultra Hybrid Space Crystal I like this case because it shows off the phone. I use this case as my daily driver. Reason I like it is because it doesn’t yellow over time and is nice and grippy on the sides.
  2. RhinoShield SolidSuit, Classic Black This case I use for when my phone could potentially get damaged or knocked around. I work Security, so this is the case I use at work. It’s slim but provides great drop protection. It can also accept camera lens attachments.

    I use the Spigen Full Coverage Tempered Glass screen protector . It’s the least intrusive screen protector I have used. I love it. Combined with a case, it’s virtually invisible and it covers the entire screen without negative affects on Face ID or screen clarity. They are also cheap.

    I have a Apple Watch Series 4 Nike+ and it’s protected by a RhinoShield CrashGuard NX. This is the only case I’ve found that fits, and doesn’t wear or tear like some of the other TPU cases out there. It’s saved my watch many times from hits and scuffs.

    I’ve searched long and hard for a screen protector for my Watch I like, and ill be honest, I haven’t found a single one that doesn’t peel, and if it doesn’t (like glass) it will crack or chip. Many non-glass screen protectors distort the hell out of the display. In other words, screen protectors for the watch just aren’t worth it.

    In the car, I use Anker PowerLine II USB to Lightning Cables. These cables are bulletproof. They have always maintained a great connection for me, they are braided and have been super durable when shoving them into small spaces like behind headliners, plastic trim etc in the car. The PowerLine v1 has a rubber coating instead of a braided line if you want a more subtle look.

    For charging, beside my bed I have the Bestand 3 in 1 Qi Charger.
    It charges my watch, AirPods and iPhone. It does require a multi USB port charger to power everything, so I use an Anker 40W, 5 port USB charger. This is perfect because I just have another long Anker PowerLine II cable going to the other side for my wife (she only has an iPhone).

    I also carry a genuine Apple USB-C to Lightning cable and a Anker USB C Power Delivery 30W charger in my “Go Bag” just in case I need to quick charge my iPhone on the go.

    I hope this helps!
u/LateralThinkerer · 1 pointr/backpacking

Pretty much any that fit will work - there have been some clever "universal" designs but I've not tried them since I have a (very old) assortment of old-style plug adapters.

Another strategy to think of might be to forgo all the separate wall warts etc. and get a single multiport charger + plug adapter and just carry usb cables so that you can charge multiple devices.

Anker PowerPorts are my go-to for this and you can get a non-fancy (no USB-3 etc) model for about $24. So if I'm bringing a boatload of toys I'll just bring the multiport plus USB cables so my wife and I can charge our phones/tablets etc. all at once.

The caveat is that my camera-specific (Nikon/Pentax) battery chargers have yet to go to the dark side and be usable with USB supply which is a pain (and likely a profit center for them), but they all use a standard 2-slot power cord, so I'll just bring that one power cord plus the charger heads that are needed.

u/ofMilwaukee · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice
  1. That's a lot of pants. See if you can bring it down to 1 pair of chinos, 1 pair of jeans, and 2 pairs of shorts. Pick the most versatile pairs. I'd drop a pair of CDBs and add another pair of sneakers. Remember that CDBs don't work with shorts, and you'll be able to travel with the bulkiest pair of shoes on your feet. If you're gonna do laundry, you might as well drop the number of shirts too. Bring PJs and a microfiber towel if you're staying in a hostel.

  2. I like a jacket like this for summer wear, because it is decently warm, very breathable, and can be packed tightly. If you're looking for something special to add to your stuff, I recommend waiting until you're already there. Your money might be better spent on food, gifts, etc.

  3. Shoot for carry-on luggage only. I know it's tough to pack, but it is soooo much less stressful flying without worrying about your luggage. Depending on how you want to do it, either a suitcase like this or a hiking backpack would be a good fit. I prefer the suitcase, even though you'll have to drag it on on some bumpy cobblestone roads. With the suitcase, you get to have the smaller backpack as well, meaning extra space and an everyday bag if you want to carry it everywhere. Don't keep anything you want to keep in the front pocket of your Everlane bag, it's a super easy pickpocket pocket.

  4. Make sure you've got sunglasses and a hat, you'll probably be outside a lot. Get something like this to go along with this, and keep an extra battery like this if you think you'll be using a lot of juice on your phone taking pictures, etc. A small umbrella might be useful depending on where you go, and can be stored in the water bottle pocket of your backpack. Download maps ahead of time with google maps and use Mapway Limited apps to navigate transit offline.

  5. Dress how you want, DGAF. Staying away from branded stuff can help you blend though. Killshots scream American to me, but I don't know their reputation in other countries. Targets tend to be the fannypack tourists that are obliviously standing in front of major attractions.

I have a 5 port Anker and none are quick charge ports. Here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VH8ZW02/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_xf7tybMBBFTEH I've been using the Anker output charger as my main charger since I got it about a month ago and both anker and Microsoft cables charged my device. Eventually my original Microsoft cable stopped working so I relied on the anker cable with anker output. And then just recently, the anker stopped working. Since they swapped out my original Microsoft cable with theirs, that cable also works with the anker.

I read a few posts here on reddit saying that the original output charger we have puts out less than what the S3 can get so that's why I got something with a higher output. Although, I don't think they recommended this one specifically. Should I not be using this one?

I just have trouble wrapping my head around the fact that just suddenly those cables and even with the original output charger don't work on my surface (although they still charge my Samsung phone). In other words, did the anker break the cable? Which doesn't make sense because it still works to charge my Samsung. I'm at a loss!

How about the Anker 5 port charger, which has 5 ports just for charging and no data ports. Or, if you still need some for data, the Anker 10 port hub, which has 3 purely charging ports and 7 data ports.

u/DaleTheHuman · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Sorry for being a broken record but I have a question about charging my switch. Can I plug the USB2/USB-C into this...


...And safely charge/play my switch off the dock? Anker seems to be a good brand and they claim to have "PowerIQ" that aparently "detects your device’s specific charging requirements". Anybody know if this is a safe option for charging my switch? Thanks in advance!

u/Sgt-Hugo-Stiglitz · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

The Anker PowerPort 5 has a 5ft power cable. So you could put the block on your night stand and use a stock cable from the anker to the phone? Pro: you got more usb charging ports Con: its 23$,

u/fremandn · 1 pointr/electronic_circuits

A powered USB hub is a very reasonable approach. Depending on what peripherals you want to add you may want more power per port. I actually like having these around in general: http://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerPort-Charging-Multi-Port-Packaging-/dp/B00YRYS4T4/ or http://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerPort-Charging-Multi-Port-Charger/dp/B00VH8ZW02/. However, I haven't tried one with the PI, just other devices. I have one coming in if you want to wait for me to try it.

u/BestSorakaBR · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Reading all these people who use their USB ports to charge their phones/controllers makes me wonder if they ever considered buying this. I have one at my desk and another near my bed. While gaming I can charge my pro controller, phone, headset, watch, and another item if need be at the rate the device is intended to charge at. One of the best investments I've ever made.

u/GoingOffRoading · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Found this gem on Amazon and I'm quite happy with it: Anker 40W/8A 5-Port USB Charger

I'm sure the power isn't super clean but it seems to power on one RPi 3 running tasks as well as a few RPi Bs quite nicely.

I'd like to hunt for something with more power and more ports instead of getting more of these USB power hubs.

u/PeabodyJFranklin · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Funny you say that. I've got one of the current model 5-port chargera, which is supposed to output 2.4A per port. When running a Pi from it on a 6' USB cable, I was getting the brownout indicator with nothing else running from the charger.

Likely a voltage drop issue, not insufficient current, due to cable resistance. I realize it'd be better to use a power brick that compensates with a mild overvoltage.

u/Mirrormn · 1 pointr/answers

You already got a very vague answer and a very technical answer, so I'll try to split the difference and just talk about functionality:

The main difference between a cheap charger and an expensive one will be power/charging speed. Many modern cell phones have various forms of "quick charging" technology, and cheap chargers will not support that. They usually push out less current in general, due to the cheaper components. Enough to charge a phone, but only slowly, and cheap chargers can't charge things like newer USB-C powered laptops or Nintendo Switches at all. Not enough power.

Beyond that, "build quality" may differ, but that's a pretty nebulous concept. Most USB chargers are just some electrical components wrapped in a plastic shell, so there shouldn't be a lot of mechanical difference between them, to the extent that it would cause one to fall apart before another.

Design and features might be different. For $30 ($23, actually, at time of writing), you can get a charger with multiple ports and a detachable power cable (gives better access to the ports doesn't block power outlets). Those can be useful additions.

Voltage fluctuation is not something I'd worry about. Modern electronics can deal with a lot of variation on the charging input. I've never heard of a cell phone being harmed in any way by minor fluctuations in voltage from the charger.

Waste heat could be an issue. Generally, a more expensive charger, from a more reputable brand, will be more likely to be tested thoroughly and less likely to produce more heat than is safe. It's definitely not a common thing for USB chargers at any price range to overheat to a dangerous degree, but if any one were going to, it would be a too-cheap-to-be-true no-name gas station one.

Overall, I think a charger is something you can afford to be frugal with, as long as you're fine with very slow charging. Just check that your bargain basement charger doesn't get uncomfortably hot after a charging session.

On the other hand, if charging your phone as quickly as it's capable of is important to you, you're going to want to stick to the OEM charger that came in the box, or a splurge on a third party charger that is highly rated.

u/bisbyx · 1 pointr/docker

It was working having flashed raspbian straight to the cards. This was actually working for me for quite a while. Somewhere along the way it stopped working. I dont know if it was a kernel update, a docker update, or something else. While things were "just working" I stopped building images for a while, and ran into this issue when I tried to update some stuff.

So this is occuring with raspbian and hypriot being flashed directly to the card. df output seems to show that there is plenty of space, so its not the "NOOBS using up all the sd card space, use raspi-config to expand :

>$ df -h

>Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

>/dev/root 29G 1.1G 26G 4% /

>devtmpfs 427M 0 427M 0% /dev

>tmpfs 431M 0 431M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup

>/dev/mmcblk0p1 64M 31M 34M 48% /boot

It seems to be less about disk space, and more about IO errors. Or in some cases, network errors. Trying to install a bunch of php stuff results in item 7 and 13 failing on "no space left!" but then continues on to item 43 with no issue. i dont think it would be able to continue on if there was actual disk space issues. (On some occasions it will just flat out say IO error: ERROR: http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/main: IO ERROR )

But it seems highly weird to me that several raspberry pi's would go out at the same time, only having issues with docker, but it seems equally odd that I'm the only one having issues with it.

This: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VH8ZW02/ is the USB hub im using to power them. is there something with this that could potentially have caused permanent damage?

u/SirBuckeye · 1 pointr/iphone

I've been using this Anker 5-port charger. I've had it about a year and it's great. I use it with iPhones, iPads, iPods, Kindles, even a fitbit. It charges fast and reliably with no heat buildup. The cord to the wall is about 5 feet long, too, so you can plug it in behind furniture or just generally have more flexibility with placement. Can't recommend it enough.

u/PatrickPlan8 · 1 pointr/tekthingers

I always like Anker chargers. They make really good ones that have smart voltage systems in them that can up the amps depending on how much the devices draws. They also have a new Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 charger if needed.

I just hope the previously linked 5 port charger gets updated with quick charge support.

As for anything USB-C related look at the reviews of Benson Leung, he is a google employee who does some great reviews testing cables and other items to make sure they follow usb-c spec and they actually work well.

u/xdarkpandax · 1 pointr/nexus6
u/AgainstFooIs · 1 pointr/mazda3

Get this, I know you have tried something like this before but I promise the spigen one is superior in every way.

  1. The magnet is much more powerful than the other brands and holds it tight, I'm using it for 9 months already and I never had it slip or fall, I have a 6s and I even put the magnetic disc behind my phone case.
  2. The clip is made from a soft silicon rubber so it will not scratch your vents and stays put without moving.
  3. The magnetic disc is super thin (thiner than other brands) if you put it under the case you won't even notice it.
  4. This is so tiny that it doesn't take any space at all and you never have to take it off as it is basically a 1.5 inch circle, if you are like me and don't like uber like cradles and stuff attached to your windshield or glue residue from the other ones.

    The only downside is that it will block the airflow of the vent somewhat when you have the phone attached.

    My second choice would be the proclip but that one is around $60.
u/merlinshawn · 1 pointr/galaxynote5

I have this one. Works wonders, it comes with 2 magnets. I had one on the back of my phone, but decided I didn't like it so I removed it and all the residue. I took the 2nd magnet and put it it in the back of my phone case without sticking it to anything. It has been amazing.

Here is what I personally went with:

u/Zip668 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I have a similar (cheaper) one that I love. The metal plate gets stuck to my phone. It's so thin that I can put my phone's case on over the plate. The magnets, plural, 4 of them in a square pattern, keep the phone very, very secure. Been using it since 4/2016 with zero ussues.

u/copcheck11 · 1 pointr/lgg6

Good topic, and I learned something today as I didn't know a magnet would stick to the G6 without the plate.
I've been using a MOCI car mount for a year and used it with my G4, G5, and now G6 and have not experienced any issues.
Below is a link to the current case I bought, permament MOCI mount, and a travel one. The reason I bought the travel air vent mount is that I wanted to get away from taking my Tom Tom GPS when I travel for work. This allows me to use the magnet so I can use my phone GPS, plus it's a nice kickstand for plane trips.

u/knownerror · 1 pointr/mazda3

I bought a Spigen magnetic phone mount for cheap off of Amazon and it works better than I thought it would. It's mounted on the vent just to the right of the steering wheel and only covers about half the vent. Close to perfect positioning.

u/dallen · 1 pointr/Nexus


I've had a lot of luck with this one so far. Haven't noticed any impact to performance. I am a little concerned about what will happen if I blow warm air out of the vents, but don't generally use those vents for warm air.

u/drinck7 · 1 pointr/Homeplate

I just bought one off of Amazon. When I record I just start the camera and walk away, do not like having to tend to it as I just record the whole time. I remove the battery from the GoPro. Average games take 2-3 hours, GoPro battery is about 1... So I remove the battery all together and plug it in. Removing the battery prevents the camera from actively charging and overheating.

u/TRB4 · 1 pointr/pokemongo

I just bought this one EasyAcc Monster 20000mAh Power Bank and one of these iClever BoostCube 4.8A 24W Dual USB Travel Wall Charger.

The power bank has 2 inputs for recharging the battery pack, and with the wall charger I bought with it, it can be completely recharged in about 6 hours instead of the typical 10-12 hours a 20,000 mAh battery pack normally takes.

Also the output is up to 2.4A per port up to 4.8A total. Meaning that you could charge 2 devices simultaneously at 2.4A each, or 4 devices simultaneously at 1.2A each. Assuming your devices can accept a 2.4A input, but if not the power bank will automatically limit the output to whatever your device can handle.

As long as you buy a Qi charger or wireless charger that has higher watt outputs yes. Most of those wireless chargers don’t go higher than 7.5W. I found this one

I have a basic Samsung pad one, probably two or three years old now, but still works fine and Anker makes really good ones too! I've got this one from Anker. I'm also considering upgrading my work desk one to this one because it'd be easier to look at the phone. If you're in the US, Anker should easily be available on Amazon too. Other brands that are good are Belkin and Aukey :)

u/mclamb · 1 pointr/ProjectFi

They make a version of that adapter that will allow for charging, but the reviews indicate that it doesn't work for everyone.

You could also use the wireless charging on the phone, those have become very cheap.



You could also probably find a wireless bluetooth receiver that you can plug your headphones into. The one below is wired, but would work if you are stationary.

You and I had the same mindset this weekend. I made this one.

u/Friarchuck · 1 pointr/iphone

I have an iPhone XS regular size.

To charge I have an Anker wireless charging mat that sits on my bedside table. Its connected to an Anker 39 watt brick with 2 usb slots. My watch charger is plugged into the other slot. I'm not sure if the charging mat is capable of fast charging, but it doesn't really matter because I put my phone on the mat at night and when I leave to workout (s3 cellular watch, thing is awesome) so I never really get to a point where I'm hurting for battery.

In the car I use this Kenu wireless charger. I kinda splurged a bit on the car one, but whatever. In the past I would have it sit on my leg and it would sometimes fall off and generally be a pain in the ass, so the fact that it holds it up is great. Benefit of upgrading from a touchid phone to a face id phone with this kind of setup is that you just have to tap the screen and it wakes up and a glance unlocks for any notifications.

I'm doing my best to embrace this wireless future. If I gotta spend a little extra to get there, that's cool with me.

I'll just mention stuff I've tried myself.

If money is no object, multiple monitors or at least headless ghosts are ironically useful in virtual desktop applications like Bigscreen. I run 3x2560x1600 in one large screen. Bigscreen has an update coming for multiple monitors too. Big physical screens are nice for spectators/multiplayer.

Until the wireless adapter comes out, a decently long displayport cable and longer USB cable running to the link box to cover the large play area and if you have an original Vive, the new 3-in-1 cable with a sleeve.

one way to prevent that problem is to organize your cables, I preferred my cables to be coming from the ceiling so I got something like this so that I won't trip on them and less tangles.

I’m only using two pulleys though but they come with a little hex wrench so you can set a stopper to give them a minimum length (so they don’t pull all the way to your high ceiling)

Any advice on cable? I am constantly worried about picking a 'bad one' I can never tell if one is going to be crap or not...

I was thinking of something like this. I get the tangle... but not have it would stress the cables any more than my stepping on them and constantly tangling them by turning around. Thoughts on that?

u/Hardwired_820 · 1 pointr/Vive

Here is what I use. It's a great cable management option. It's basically a pulley system that sticks onto the ceiling with spring retractable cables.

I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M6EB8DM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The original version has the problem you mention. Now they include a square of "sticky" designed to go between the clear plastic hooks and the wall/ceiling. Using that makes everything stay perfectly. Just remove the backing on one side, stick it where you want it, remove the other sides backing and the backing on the hook... press and done.

u/cellcell · 1 pointr/oculus


This works too.

Been using it for both my rift and vive without issues.

Truly the best way to play.

u/thecolossalfossil · 1 pointr/Vive

I use these - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M6EB8DM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1


I have the cable running along the center of the ceiling about 1.5" from the ceiling itself so it doesn't interfere with the light I have up there. The cable itself is strapped to the headset strap at the point of the crown of my head (towards the back). If it's further up, it tends to feel like someone is pulling on a hat straight up. If it's further back, it tends to have too much slack and gets in the way.


I also use the new version (less stiff) of the cable. You want to make sure you leave some good slack. I have the breakout box on the wall itself. This way, the cable is entirely suspended from the ceiling. The computer has it's own set of cables that go up the wall into the breakout box.


Couple of things I do want to point out.


  1. If you are playing a game that forces you to cross each of your arms paths, there is a chance that the opposite arm's controller will get hooked onto the retractable lead (not the vive cable itself). This is bad because it will jerk your head if you make a swift action. I haven't had it happen too many times and I've had the setup for a year. The very few times I felt I got caught, I paused the game and fixed it.


  2. You will need to use some kind of cable tracking system in the vive that tracks rotations. Otherwise, the cable will begin to bind and pull on you a little bit. I use Turn Signal for this. Nice little VR overlay onto the floor showing you how many times you have spun around (rotating the cable).
u/vanfanel1car · 1 pointr/oculus

Yeah, I have extensions to mine with the extensions wrapped in this:

With the extra slack it's not as bad. Others have opted to suspend the cords on the ceiling using retracable cables like this:


u/OwThatHertz · 1 pointr/VRGaming

> Forgot to answer, I have about 5 foot of space. Another question, is there anyway to have the headsets wireless or are the forced wired? And if so is there any negatives or benefits from having it wireless vice versa

This may be a factor that ends up making the HMD decision for you if it matters that much.

Both the Vive and the Rift have wireless options. The option for the Rift (and it's also made for the Vive) is called the TPCast and is a ~$300 option. Note that the Vive and Rift versions are not interchangeable. Also note that the TPCast is an excellent proof of concept but has some technical issues that, in my opinion, mean it isn't ready for prime time. I had one and returned it.

That said, HTC has launched an official wireless solution that's much more polished. It is $300 and requires a PCIe card to function, unlike the TPCast which was a wireless/ethernet-based solution. However, it appears to be the real deal.

Note that there are also cable management solutions that do a reasonably decent job of keeping cables out of the way, assuming they're long enough. I'm currently using something like this. However, the included retractable devices aren't really strong enough unless they are spaced together closely or more than one is at a specific point and then you plan how your cable will be supported and where it will coil as it gets retracted. There are better retractable key rings than the ones this kit includes (these ones are designed for key cards rather than keys, so they're weaker) so I may replace them. Also, the sticky pads won't stay sticky forever and come off textured surfaces almost immediately. I ended up screwing them into ceiling joists in my basement, which is where my VR is usually set up. I'll probably upgrade to the wireless solution when it becomes available because I like quality of life improvements to VR, but it's by no means a necessary expense. I'd recommend putting that money toward a good video card and an inexpensive cable management setup rather than getting a cheap video card so you can go wireless.

u/-TheDoctor · 1 pointr/samsung

Oh, you're right.

Here: https://www.amazon.com/Upgraded-Anker-PowerCore-Qualcomm-Portable/dp/B01JIYWUBA/

Not USB-C, but same capacity, and QC3.0. That's also just its normal price, not a sale price like the Samsung. The Samsung is a great deal, but this is what I'd recommend if you miss the sale or something.

EDIT: and here's the 20k version for ~$15 more: https://www.amazon.com/Upgraded-Anker-PowerCore-Backwards-Compatible/dp/B01N0X3NL5/

u/FickleBalls · 1 pointr/Vive

Sucks to have buy more things for an already expensive setup but I bought this as a backup for the power bank that came with the Vive wireless. It's a solid power bank and I probably get 5 hours of play on a full charge. You could try using this instead of the one that came with your wireless.

u/Masato13 · 1 pointr/Vive

Any battery with QC3.0 output works. People seem to like https://www.amazon.ca/Anker-PowerCore-20000mAh-Qualcomm-Recharging/dp/B01N0X3NL5 if you want double the power with a reputable brand. Apparently it fits in the holder but sticks up. I picked up https://www.amazon.ca/Hercules-Z1-Qualcomm-intelligent-protection/dp/B01MTYAKAF/ and it's the exact size and shape as the original, just with micro-usb input instead of C and it works just fine.

This is the one I use. Where I've drained the HTC supplied battery in 1.5 hours, I've yet to unexpectedly end a gaming session due to power loss.

u/pkcd · 1 pointr/Switch

Personally I wouldn't use that power bank. We've seen 3rd party docks brick switch consoles already, due to the switch's incompatible usb-c drivers. Plus, Anker has a battery pack that is licensed by Nintendo to work w/ the switch for not much more, so you'd probably be better off with them.

Battery packs are here:



Also here's a video on why 3rd party chargers don't work (if you're interested):



u/NikoWZRD · 1 pointr/Vive

Might be a silly question, but the Anker 20000 battery pack I've found on Amazon Canada is listed as a "Anker PowerCore Speed 20000" (https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N0X3NL5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_pETQBb1TM90PN) which appears to be QC 3.0 compatible, would this work OK?
Also have you tried charging the included battery with a USB-C to USB-C cable as opposed to the A-C one supplied? My included battery seems to be charging super slowly, wondering if my speed charger for my Android would play nice.

u/rW0HgFyxoJhYka · 1 pointr/Vive

So this anker 20000 should work right?

How long does this anker battery last using the Vive Wireless? Should I just be using these as the battery rather than the battery that comes with the Wireless?

u/breakwhore · 1 pointr/Vive

I've had similar problems. I ended up replacing the power banks and cables. For anyone else looking - the power banks have to be QC3 aka Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 (or presumably above).


I found the power bank connection had broken the port the charging cable goes in just from a bit of general usage!


Been using the following with good results:


https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07GJ4BTVR/ - Spiral Coil USB Cable USB 3.0 Male to Female Extension Cord 1.5 m/3.3 Feet - I bought thinking it might mean the cable drags around the female part of the extension when moving around instead of drag being created on the power bank itself

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B079Z3XJ9S/ - wall charger - for charging and also as an experimental pass through for a mains connection, though not sure how much that's safe as such as there's no auto-off!

u/andy2na · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Until there is a blackvue deal or the 4k version goes on massdrop, I bought a couple DDPai Mini dash cams and theyve been working well.

Since they are powered by the typical microusb input, I was actually thinking about using the Anker Powercore 20000 as they have it rated from -40F to 158F, which should be fine. Wiring both to the center console where this battery would charge via QC3.0 from the 12V.

I just need to find time to wire them neatly

u/BriB66 · 1 pointr/AppalachianTrail

Yup, I think a lot of people overlook a Quickcharge input. They have a charger the size of a fucking cinderblock but it takes about 20 hours to charge the charger. I got this one. Has Quickcharge input and 2 QC outputs. The only way it could be better is if it had 2 QC inputs as I've seen on some models.


u/Fugim · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I've used this one on my Vive Pro since the wireless option came out. Zero problems and long play time. Slow recharge without a quickcharger tho


u/2HDFloppyDisk · 1 pointr/Alienware

Here was my shopping list,

-PCIe eGPU enclosure for the WiGig card

-Thunderbolt3 (active) cable

-Vive Wireless Adapter with Vive Pro addon

-Spare battery with 20000mAh Qualcomm QC 3.0






I read about 2 dozen posts around the internet covering the topic of using the wireless adapter with external configurations for laptops. Many people had mixed results and I was hesitant to try it myself but I needed to figure out if it was possible regardless since there wasn't any clear answers.

I ordered the items that made the most sense to me in terms of price and quality. The eGPU enclosure I got was the most attractive and had a carry handle which I liked considering my intended use for this setup was going to be mobile. I went with an active Thunderbolt 3 cable due to the fact that it "should" in theory provide a better signal from the eGPU to the laptop. Finally, I got a spare battery based on the reviews that said the included HTC battery didn't last long and took forever to recharge. The battery I got was recommended by others in the reviews who said they had a Vive Wireless kit.

Once I got all the items I did the setup and fired up the Vive. Right off the bat it worked perfectly. With that said, some of the mixed reviews I was seeing from others trying the eGPU setup had commented on FPS stuttering/lag when moving your head and I did experience this slightly although it was intermittent at times. I also had a brief random moment where everything pixelated pretty bad as if the graphics suddenly got toggled to 1990 Nintendo mode.

In the end I was able to determine the following,

  1. It is possible to run the Vive Wireless Adapter on a laptop.

  2. The hardware of the laptop is an important factor in having a smooth experience with this setup.

  3. Some tweaking and configuration work will need to be done to get a smooth FPS. Still a WIP for me to get the level I'm happy with.

  4. Some games may not be optimized enough to offer crisp visuals.

    My testing of this setup was with an Alienware M15 and M17 both with i9 CPU, 2080 RTX, 32GB RAM, and x2 NVME M.2 SSD. I have an older Alienware 17 R5 I plan to test with soon to compare results.

    Most importantly, what I noticed in my testing was that there's some graphical loads that will bog down the FPS and cause slight stuttering and it's not yet fully clear why. For example, while in SteamVR home room area there was a few key spots that when I looked directly at them it would cause stutter if I moved my head left and right slowly but if I opened the Steam menu which added a transparent overlay on top of what I was looking at the stutter would go away completely even though I could still see the same thing behind the overlay. I read a lot of people tweaking SteamVR settings to smooth out the FPS and I have yet to get the time to fully dive into that part but I suspect it will likely work out to resolve the issue.

    The alternative setup I was wanting to test was getting the Alienware AGA enclosure and testing to see if that provided a better out of the box solution without tweaking settings. I found some people saying it didn't work at all and others saying it did. Considering the cable connection is different it still has me curious, as I believe the cable connection over the AGA is using an identical pipeline/bandwidth as Dell docking stations.
u/wnepnq · 1 pointr/Vive

I would recommend this one:

I bought it to use with the wireless adapter and it's working perfectly.
The best thing is that it fits securely and firmly in the belt case that comes with the wireless adapter's original power bank and it has 2 output ports.
It has a quick charge 3.0 port (which I use to power the wireless adapter) and a PowerIQ port which I use to charge the controllers when their battery is low.
I first start with the HTC power bank and when it discharges, I use the Anker and start charging the HTC. By doing that and using the PowerIQ ports to charge the controllers (alternating them while using Anker Power Bank), I managed to get 18h+ of playtime on a gaming party with my friends.

u/Cruncher_13 · 1 pointr/iphone

I recommend waiting for a sale on the Anker Powercore Speed 20000 PD + 30W PD Wall Charger bundle, I got it for $60 a few months back.

Anker makes top quality stuff and it's a really good deal if you can hold out for the sale price.

I'm using this as reference: http://i.imgur.com/5oXEONa.png


Ok, so powerbanks, in general, deliver voltage/amperage in different ranges, like some deliver 9v/2A, some 9v/2.5A, some go above the 18W recommended, some have PD, some don't... So... Let's say I'm using a powerbank with PD, will it adjust itself for the Switch needs? Does the Switch work with PD or should I get one that deliver specifically 9v/2A, 12v/1.5A or 15v/1,2A?


I know it's been a while but I'm about to order a powerbank for my devices and I'd like one that would work fine with the Switch at it's maximum intake, 18W (did it change?), like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LQ81QR0/ref=emc_b_5_t ?


Or maybe I should go with a PD model, like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071WNWRNC/ref=emc_b_5_t ?

u/After_Dark · 1 pointr/MatebookXPro

Having a C to C connector would charge faster if the battery supports The Power Delivery (PD) spec for USB-C. I don't expect that battery is damaging your device, but if you want faster charge speeds I would recommend Anker's Powercore+ PD line of devices.

I have the I have the 20000 PD and it charges decently fast for a battery, topping out at about 26 watts (less than half the speed of the MBXP included 65W charger, many phones top out at 15-18W).

All that said, the battery you're using is probably fine if it's working for you.

u/DeimosValvicious · 1 pointr/onebag

This Is the one I have. I got it for the “power drive” feature. It charges my iPad as fast as it consumes watching an HD movie. A battery pack this large only comes in handy on long flights and when you go days without charging your phone (sometimes at hostels I don’t like to leave my phone out). In some ways I really recommend it but in others it’s pretty heavy. It weighs almost a pound.

u/thatguuuy · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I think any USB pack will charge the Switch when it's not being used, but might not keep up with it while you're gaming on it.

To get the most charging potential, get a pack with USB-PD (power delivery). It can deliver a lot more power than standard USB.

Although pricy, I bought this one LINK and it works great. It also includes a USB-PD charger, which is nice...

It has Power Delivery which will let me get the rapidly charging. It was a toss up between that and the PowerCore+ 26800 and I ended up picking the cheaper for now. I read the PowerCore+s have better build quality and alledgedly charge faster (the battery, not the phone) and there was great internal debate and I ended up with the Powercore Speed. I got an official Anker case to store it in too for when I carry it in my man purse with me when I'll be out and about which helped in the decision.

I can choose alternative routes on my phone's GM. The fastest/best route is automatically chosen and is blue. Slower routes are grey, and you can tap them and start with those directions. Hope that helps.

Perhaps to remedy phone dying problem, print off directions ahead of time, or look into a portable power bank? I have this one which is hella overkill, but it charges my phone like 4-5 times before it dies. I wouldn't recommend leaving a battery in the car I guess, but if you usually have a purse or backpack, toss one in there.

Time does help though. I feel like all new drivers are nervous, but the extra step up with anxiety really makes it hard. I hope you're able to get more comfortable :(

OP, I have this. Should I get a different one for my Switch?

u/God_Of_Sheep · 1 pointr/PokemonGoBristol

I just picked up this for £25 delivered next day, seems to allow my S7 edge to fast charge, and lasts around 4-6 full charges.

u/foxanon · 1 pointr/pokemongo

Just get one of these. I bought two of them. Now wife and I can play forever.

That's why I bought one of External Battery Pack My battery life was already really suspect, so it's an amazing purchase for this game and just a really good purchase in general. And I got it with 1day shipping on Prime.

I have the EasyAcc 20000mAh Power Bank


I like it quite a bit; on a full charge it can recharge 4 devices at once or one ~3.5 times. It also has a built in flashlight and can charge a device while being charged itself.

u/chrisof94 · 1 pointr/blackfriday

Power bank that's preferably 20,000 mah or above? I bought one in march a couple years ago for $32 and recently lost it.


This is the power bank I bought. As you can see, it's currently more expensive than when I bought it two years ago! All other similar power banks seem to be just as expensive too.

Thank you in advance!

u/kman418 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I use one of these

I've only needed it once for my phone as I use it mainly for my work iPad but it charged at what I assume to be normal speed since it was done very quickly, I didn't time it though.

u/thirru · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I got the ravpower 20k mah 30W battery mostly because it also charges my Macbook at 30W which most other chargers cannot.

It's a bit pricey for the moment. Think I had gotten it for like 70. Definitely worth it.

(see USB C Hubs Portable Charger RAVPower 20100mAh 30W Type C iSmart 3.0 Data Transfer, USB C/Type C Port Output, Power Bank External Battery Pack for Smartphones, MacBook 12'' https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0156HCJQO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_B0YCyb0GCAGF1)

u/halcyoncmdr · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

1500mAh is only a 1.5A charge. That's standard for most battery packs, nothing great. My old Motorola P4000 charges at 1.5A.

This Anker 20,100mAh on Amazon is $79.99 (not Prime) and supports up to 2.4A on standard USB and 3A on Type-C.

Here's a similar Anker 20,100mAh one without Type-C for only $45.99 (Prime). It is limited to 2.4A like all standard USB ports though. It does come with the wall adapter too however.

There's also this 20,100mAh one from RavPower for $55.99 (Prime) that's the same capacity and 2.4A USB and 3A Type-C capability (except it also supports QuickCharge2.0)

Or this RavPower 26,800mAh behemoth for only $49.99 (Prime) without Type-C that will charge up to 2.4A via stadard USB.

Both of the RavPower devices have good reviews and I've never had an issue with them or Anker before.

u/yolo-yoshi · 1 pointr/nexus5x

Buy one of these babies https://www.amazon.com/Qualcomm-RAVPower-20100mAh-Portable-External/dp/B0156HCJQO/ref=dp_ob_title_wld

It works wonders and has fast charge. And has plenty of juice for several other devices.

u/Mint-Vanilla · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Good point, I did not consider the watts. My Anker PowerCore 10000 PD outputs 18W through USB-C, and it can charge my Nintendo Switch while I'm playing it. While I imagine that 30W would charge it even faster, I can say that 18W is fast enough for me.

If you really want 30W and PD, then you might consider looking into RAVPower, which has several low-cost solutions such as...

u/BobbySon123 · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

What you are hearing about is the Type-A to Type-C USB.

The two powerbanks which I know of are: Anker and RavPower

Here is a Anker comparison of cable to stock. Updated PSA

Here is a discussion between those two.

There is(/was?) an issue with the USB-A to USB-C cable included in the Anker; however, if you use the Type-C to Type-C cable you should be fine. Additionally, Amazon now forbids non-compliant USB-A to USB-C, so you can go through them to get a fix

The RavPower is working great for me (when I need it).

u/crispychoc · 1 pointr/applehelp

I doubt it would, you really want a battery pack with USB C like this:


It mentions being able to power the MacBook.

u/kmineroff95 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Is there a reason that charger and this one (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0156HCJQO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_YpoTybY2MEW3P) are the same price even though this one has so much less mAh? They both have USB-C PD, I can't figure out why the bigger one isn't a no brainer

u/irontoby · 1 pointr/Dell

I'm curious whether anyone has tried one of these USB-C battery packs that are advertised as able to charge a MacBook? No direct mention of USB Power Delivery on the specs, and the only reviewer so far to specifically mention a Dell laptop sounds like a blithering idiot.

u/demoran · 1 pointr/promos

I have the RAVPower 20100mAh Portable Charger and I highly recommend it, if you're using a backpack. It's too big to keep in your pocket.

It sports both Qualcomm Quick Charge and USB Type-C. The type C can both input and output, and it can pass-through charge (charge the brick while the brick charges your phone).

What I like the most about it is that you don't have to interact with it at all to start charging your phone. When you plug your phone in, it starts charging. When you remove your phone, it goes into standby.

13oz, 60 USD.

u/Blu_T · 1 pointr/pokemongo

Oh, for the Anker I had a USB type A to USB type C cable. Not sure on 2.0 vs. 3.0.

u/phoenixus21 · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

u/AlyKitKat · 1 pointr/Nexus6P
u/gr00ve88 · 1 pointr/nintendo

that package is a ripoff... you can buy the parts separately from Anker and its $10 cheaper...and you get a second usb-C cable.


and if you don't want the extra USB-C cable you can save another $10 by getting the wall adapter w/o the cable.

u/soundman1024 · 1 pointr/blackberry

The Priv has a massive battery. Anker makes some great quick chargers that really make a difference. I'd recommend one at work and maybe a portable quick charger if your messenger bag/purse/backpack/whatever you carry. The Priv also supports wireless charging, so if you want a wireless charger on your desk that's an option, just make sure you put a hefty charger behind the wireless pad. I use a dock instead of wireless. Seems more functional to me.

As a side note, I kitted my portable charger out with 2x USB-micro B cables, a Lightning cable, and a micro-B to C adapter. Got sick of iPhone people always being dead and me saying I've got power if you've got a wire. Got the C adapter just to be inclusive. Haven't needed it yet.

u/GodoftheGeeks · 1 pointr/theNvidiaShield

I can't speak to the SD card but I have that case and love it! When it comes to the charger, based on recommendations I found on here and the nVidia forums, I picked up one of these and I couldn't be happier with it. The charging is incredibly fast with it!

u/Galileo5 · 1 pointr/blackberry

I've actually gotten in the habit of placing it face down until I get a case backing for it to make it so the camera doesn't bulge out any more, so I only see the bar when I pick it up to check on it.

I searched around amazon.ca for some equivalents that were still both highly rated and reasonably priced, and here's what I found:

Charger: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B016LO4UTA

Cable: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01JPEKJYI

Hope those are okay, feel free to search around yourself if you'd like. The Priv has QuickCharge 2.0, but pretty much all 3.0 chargers are backwards compatible anyway, and I got a 3.0 one just to future-proof. I also have one of those external batteries that I love, for travel days or busy days or something, and you can find great ones with 16,000 mAh and QuickCharge for less than $30 now if you don't already have one.

I'm glad you're starting to love the phone! I've warmed up to it as well, and not just because the battery doubles as a space heater under heavy usage.

u/larsstcop · 1 pointr/Ultralight

27w Aukey pd 3.0 starts around 70 gram / 2.5 oz, Anker around 100 gram / 3.5 oz.

To compare Anker QC 3.0 18w wall charger suitable for Anker Powercore II 10.000 mAh (190 gram / 6.7 oz) with a full recharge time of minimum 4 hours comes in around 70 gram / 2.5 oz. with no MFI lightning cable.

No free lunch.. but potential to save 2-2.5 hours charging your powerbank everytime you are in town :)

u/Biggie_Vii · 1 pointr/lgg6

Is this the one you're referring to? I'm interested in purchasing it, but am holding off bc I'm worried it won't quick charge my phone. I planned to purchase an Anker USB-A to USB-C cable to use with it too.

Do this particular adapter work fine with the stock LG cable that comes with the phone?

u/boywithnoarms · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I bought this cable and this plug and have no issues with fast charging.

As others have said try contacting LG.

Failing that you can get a good quality quick charge 3.0 charger realatively cheep.

My nintendo switch is arriving today while at work =)

But I was curious for charging the switch it uses USB-C? correct?

I would like to keep one at home, and then one with me at all times while travelling and maybe one at work so can charge.

Do you know if this adapter will work?


I use this for my galaxy s8+ and works well with a USB-C cable


u/TheTVDB · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I have this cable and charger and they've worked incredibly well:


I have an inverter in our car and was able to use the Switch (BotW) on a 7 hour trip without the charge dropping below 100%. Obviously works just as well when plugged into the wall.

Yeah that's the only thing holding me back is they haven't reviewed it. But the reviews are great and I haven't heard any issues.

u/wutsdasqrtofdisapt · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I recently bought this charger and am really happy with it. I get rapid charging in the car which is usually when I need it most. Definitely recommend it.

u/dualactioncomplete · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Not to my experience. I can access the advanced battery settings and disable fast charge easily. Since I tested wireless charging that option now appears as well.

The Fast charge option is only lit if connected to a compatible charger, doesn't matter if its a sammy or not.

As for the Car Charger, I'm using This

No official review, but in a comment in this thread, he says: "I haven't been reviewing car chargers as much as the A-to-C cables, but I like the Nekteck 5.4A charger. I use it day to day with my 5X." Take that as you will.

Living in Los Angeles.

With this charger, I can have my N5X running navigation, bluetooth, and pandora with my phone fully charged. Amazon says I purchased this in July 2016, so it's been a good 3 months or so worth of usage with no problems for me.


u/fwtx7 · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I know its not exactly what you asked for, but its the closest I've found and its worked for me. Type-C Built in with second Type-A port. It's 5.4 amps shared, so if you have a compativle A to C cable, both phones should be able to rapid charge.

u/zman0900 · 1 pointr/nexus5x

I've got this thing and it charges just as fast as the stock wall charger. Cable is built in for about the same price as other chargers with no cable. Has an extra 'A' port too that is supposed to work full speed at the same time, but I've never tried that.


u/MkVsTheWorld · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I bought the coiled version, but it didn't charge anywhere near 3a, according to Ampere. So, I returned it to Amazon.

Just a charger? It's hard to go wrong with Anker.

USB-C might charge it faster than a fast regular USB charger, but a regular charger might be more universal for other stuff you have. Some ideas:

u/EricGRIT09 · 1 pointr/PleX

You are correct regarding the internet connection being required for the Chromecast.

What about an android box w/Plex installed? I don't have much experience with them, admittedly, but something like this might work: https://www.amazon.com/Greatever-Newest-T98-pro-Android/dp/B07786HKN2/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518798925&sr=1-5&keywords=android+box&dpID=519PPlBu2fL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

Then connect the android box to a battery pack: https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Portable-22000mAh-Li-polymer-Smartphone/dp/B01G1XH46M/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518799026&sr=1-4&keywords=usb+battery+pack&dpID=31p6oM25MUL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

Keep the battery pack charging via USB and also keep the android box connected to the battery pack. If you are concerned with draining your car battery you can use an on/off switch - same goes for draining the usb charge pack.

Two of these would be all you need to switch on/off when entering/exiting the vehicle: https://www.amazon.com/JBtek-Male-Female-Cable-Switch/dp/B00UR321B6/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518798833&sr=1-3&keywords=usb+on+off

Sync to the Android box and enjoy offline...

EDIT: Sounds like your power to the battery pack is switched on/off by the key position, right? Then you could eliminate the first usb switch and not worry about draining your battery. Just turn off the switch between android and charge pack when exiting (overnight, for example) so you don't drain that pack.
