FAST Power Bank: No more 2-day recharge times!

Fastest Power Bank in the West!Power banks, portable USB chargers, battery banks… Whatever you want to call them, they’re very handy for charging your gizmos on the go.

The only trouble is that almost all of them take AGES to recharge themselves.

Even though many models support Quick Charging of your gizmos, the power bank itself usually only gently sips juice from the wall outlet as it leisurely refills its internal lithium-ion cells.

Typically, you may have to wait upwards of 14 HOURS for a full recharge! That’s not very convenient.

Enter the RAVPower 26800mAh USB C Power Bank – with 30W quick-charging INPUT for a full recharge time of only 4 hours!

But the fun doesn’t stop there…

Dark Welder 2: My DIY battery tab spot welder

Dark Welder 2: My battery tab spot welder!After the failure of my $16 battery tab spot welder, I saw Kevin Dark’s DIY version.

But it wasn’t exactly what I needed, so I decided to build a modified version.

The Modified Dark Welder, or Dark Welder 2.0, has a foot switch that triggers a precise welding current pulse that is always the same length of time – no matter how long you hold down the button.

And in my new version, the button is now a foot pedal to keep your hands free.

The best part is: IT WORKS!

5G loses steam, but what’s next?

5G Fizzles Out...The latest news about 5G isn’t exactly flattering.

After dealing with nothing but hyped-up descriptions of the Technological Wonderland that awaited us, now even mainstream techie news seems to be all about bashing 5G instead of promoting it.

What happened??

In short, reality sunk in.

I suspect we’ll see some rather substantial evolutionary changes in wireless service instead of the revolutionary changes we’ve been promised – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing!

Are injectable tracking devices even possible?

Injectable Tracking: Looney or Likely?We often hear lately about nefarious plans involving injectable tracking devices… But is such a thing even possible?

Given the current state of technology, would such a thing even work?

Better yet, HOW would it work?

After all, it’s a long way from contactless payment cards to tracking chips floating inside inside millions of people who are constantly on the move.

The answers to these questions surprised me – and they may surprise you, too!

No more WiFi, Part 4: Wire and test your house network

No more WiFi: Connect and test!This video is a continuation of Part 3!!

What happens if you want to set up a home network, but you already have existing Ethernet cabling and wall jacks?

While it may seem simple, it turns out that you need to do some investigation first.

In Part 1 of this video, I described the different types of patch panels you may find in your home, how they work, and how you will use them (or not).

In this video, I’ll show exactly how to connect everything!

No more WiFi, Part 3: All about existing house wiring

No more WiFi: All about existing house wiringWhat happens if you want to set up a home network, but you already have existing Ethernet cabling and wall jacks?

While it may seem simple, it turns out that you need to do some investigation first.

In this video, I describe the different types of patch panels you may find in your home, how they work, and how you will use them (or not).

It’s worth noting that if you only have twisted-pair phone cabling (often called PTT-298), you CAN use that wiring for 100 Mbps Ethernet – but not for Gigabit+ speeds.

Fortunately, most homes these days have Cat 5e or higher cabling, so that part shouldn’t be a problem…

Can Shungite protect you from EMFs?

Does Shungite absorb 5G?Shungite is a stone that many people use to protect themselves from EMFs such as WiFi, 5G, and so on. But does it really work?

Well, it turns out that most of the information available on the internet appears to be dead wrong!

I do a few simple tests in this video to show that no, shungite does not appear to absorb EMFs – it reflects or partially blocks them only when it’s directly between the antenna and your body.

Well, okay, but there are still tons of people who swear by it! What’s going on here?

Should you keep using your shungite?
