Samsung_SE370_Wireless_Charging_Monitor

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have built-in wireless charging, so why not a monitor? That may well have been Samsung’s thinking when it comes to its newly announced SE370 Full-HD monitors. And you have to admit, it makes sense, many of us have our smartphones nearby when we sit at the computer.

Hands on with Tronsmart’s Quick Charge 2.0 chargers

tronsmart_charger_boxes_TA

Just about every flagship device shipping this year has or will have Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology inside. Devices with supported Qualcomm processors can take advantage of Quick Charge 2.0 by receiving an accelerated amount of power in less time than anything else. The chargers included in the box with new devices, however, are typically not the ones compatible with Qualcomm’s innovation. Most companies sell them separately at rather high prices.

Tronsmart is among the companies vying to sell you a product capable of rapidly charging your device. This company actually stands out, though, because of its certification. Tronsmart’s three products that are compatible with Quick Charge 2.0-ready devices have all been certified by Qualcomm. On the company’s site, Tronsmart even shows the documents as proof. This goes for Tronsmart’s two-port wall charger, four-port charging hub, and three-port car charger.
