22 power banks is quite a lot
     Fri, Jan 08 2016 | 6:05P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The curse of modern smartphones is that battery development doesn’t keep up with increases in pixel density and processing speed, a situation that doesn’t look likely to change in the near future. Hence, for those of us who actually use our clever portable devices, relying on some kind of external battery at some point becomes a necessity. The market offers them in abundance, but which are any good? We acquired testing apparatus and put 22 models through their paces. It’s possible you’re missing some well-known names, but this is merely our first venture in this segment. Still, 22 power banks is quite a lot, I think you’ll agree J

how much PSU does one really need?
     Mon, Dec 28 2015 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

“You may have noticed that there are plenty of so-called PSU calculators on the internet, where you fill in your other hardware and the calculator will give you an idea of what power supply you'll need. That sounds great, but the problem is that it only gives a general indication of what you'll need. Almost all of these PSU calculators work by simply adding up the TDP of all the parts you filled in, plus a margin for overclocking. A calculation like this is better than nothing, but we can do better than that. It's high time we looked at this properly and worked out how all of this really works.”

Deep Cool DA500 Aurora 500W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Nov 30 2015 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Deep Cool are one of the biggest names in the PC market, although perhaps not so much in Western markets, but that’s certainly something that has been changing. Deep Cool have launched a series of high-profile products over the last couple of years that you’ve no doubt seen.
