Huawei Places the World's First 5G VoNR Video Call

May 17, 2019

Huawei recently completed the world's first voice over NR (VoNR) call. The voice and video call service was made using two Huawei Mate 20X 5G phones on a 5G standalone (SA) network.

Cure Charge Anxiety with the Versatile ChargeHubGO+

May 6, 2019

One of the biggest challenges many of us face is charge anxiety and this problem has gotten worse thanks to USB-C.

Personally, we have devices which use Micro USB like our Jabra Elite 65t wireless headphones and Anker Fast Wireless Charger Stand.

We use Lightning for our Apple iPhone XS Max and USB C for a 12.9" Apple iPad Pro.

For a short while we also had to carry a USB to USB-C cable to connect our SurfaceBook gen 1 to our iPad but now that we have a SurfaceBook 2, we have a direct USB-C to USB-C cable.

So when we travel, we take all these cables with us.

What about when we can't take a backpack? How do we decide which cables to take with our backup battery that we often need?

We have found the absolute perfect solution!

The ChargeHubGO+ 5000 mAh All-in-One Charging Solution is the most versatile solution to charging on the go, we have ever seen.

This 5000 MaH battery has two cables built in. A Lightning and USB-C.
