OnePlus Power Bank: Sleek, powerful, and wonderfully affordable

Portable batteries are a dime a dozen, and you don’t have to go very far to find a cheap and powerful option. Amazon is full of some great choices, while companies like Mophie offer some high-end alternatives. But, quietly, OnePlus is throwing its name into the portable charger hat. And, like anything OnePlus does, the Chinese startup is going big—and cheap.


The OnePlus Power Bank was officially detailed earlier this month, and we got a model in to test out. While we haven’t had much time to use it, our initial impressions are already positive. It does what’ you’d expect a portable charger to do, which, um, is to charge your devices. But it’s also a lovely accessory to look at. Design is often overlooked when portable chargers are concerned, but OnePlus really made something that’s not only functional, but beautiful, too.


It’s a long, slim rectangle smooth soft-touch plastic surrounding the front and back, and two of the sides. The other two sides are filled with connection ports (two full-size USB and one microUSB) along with battery indicator LEDs that can be woken up with a gentle shake. There are no buttons, and only a small “OnePlus” logo stamped on front. Otherwise, the device is all subtle curves and slick lines. It’s about as minimal as a portable battery can get.


The Power Bank is a little on the heavier side at 220g, but you get a 10,000mAh battery, which should be plenty for both phones and tablets; you can charge two devices at once, and OnePlus says the device sports “a multitude of safety features [that] prevent overcharging and overheating.”


And you get all that for just $14.99. Sold. There are a lot of options out there, but not many that combine the power and beauty of the OnePlus Power Bank. The device was expected to go on sale last week, but unfortunately the store says coming soon. Since we got a unit in, however, hopefully that means consumers will be able to pick one up in the coming days. Once it does, I’m definitely picking up the black model, which looks wonderfully stealthy.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
