ResQBattery disposable smartphone battery pack

With the number of rechargeable battery banks available one would think that a pocket disposable battery pack like ResQBattery may not make any sense. However, the fact is even spare batteries lose capacity over time and often we forget to charge them, so having a spare in case of emergency or in the event there’s no where handy to recharge, may not be such a bad idea.

This is the concept behind ResQbattery, the brainchild of entrepreneur Idit Hoter-Ishay and founder of Nofet LLC who conceived the idea a few years ago after her battery died and she urgently needed to use her phone while travelling in China. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

LG V20, world’s first Quad DAC smartphone coming in September?

In the days where it’s getting harder and harder to add significant innovations to smart phones, LG has taken a bold step to appeal to the discerning audiophile. They’ve announced their upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V20 will feature a built-in 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) — a smartphone industry first.

Inclusion of a high-quality DAC is not new to LG. The V20′s predecessor, the LG V10 already includes 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology, but the new DAC, will feature four channels. The company claims the new addition will allow the new phone to deliver ultra-crisp and clear sound that comes close to replicating a live performance. Of course, you’ll need to use compatible wired headphones to really take advantage of this. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
