Aukey 10,000mAh Dual-USB Power Bank with Quick Charge

25

Compact and portable, Aukey's new 10,000mAh power bank sports 2 USB ports — 1 dedicated to Quick Charge.

I've had no reason to abandon my original Aukey single-USB Quick Charge power bank — which I use more often than I like to admit — until this new and improved backup became available. While the capacity of the internal lithium-polymer battery hasn't changed, the solo USB output has. Aukey's added an extra USB output to juice up 2 devices head to head.

The Galaxy Note 5 in Europe, and why we can't have nice things

188

Samsung's decision to deny European buyers its best smartphone is weird and unnecessary.

As tick follows tock, each year Samsung has followed up its Galaxy S handset with a new Galaxy Note. It was one of the more reliable, almost inevitable events of the tech calendar. Every 12 months the Note family has introduced a new member at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany. And each time it's been the gold standard for what's possible in a big-screened, high-end Android handset.

Note owners are fiercely loyal. It's been said among fans of the series that the only thing that can replace a Note is another Note.

Except not anymore. This year, Europe isn't getting a new Galaxy Note — at least not anytime soon. Americans can buy it, as can Asian consumers. But live in Europe? For the moment, you're SOL. There'll be no Galaxy Note 5 for European buyers in 2015 — instead we'll get the Galaxy S6 edge+.
