• Is there such a thing as a USB to electrical outlet/wall plug in cord?

    This would be very handy when my electric scooter batteries dies when I m out and about. An eBay search turned up nothing. Just gave me a bunch of wall chargers. Am I using the wrong term? Are power banks not strong enough to handle a wall plug?

    Best answer: the charger is x Volts ...y Amperes( maximum allowed current ) ...on pulling the current above this, it will get hot so may will fry.
    the battery is z Volts t Amperes ( maximum charging current ) .... on charging the current above this, the battery will be damaged....risk of explosion!
    1-if x is more than z, the resulting current, if more than y , damages the charger ...if more than t, damages the battery.... or explode it.
    2- if x is less than z, there is no current so no charging.

    on cellphone the temperature of battery is controled if it pulls more current, the conroller will switch off the battery.... to prevent explosion ...

    now check the parameters.

  • Did this Timex have radium?

    I had this Timex diver a while back and I threw it away after I read the horror stories about radium on dials..

Does the radium/phosphor mix glow after it is exposed to light?... show more

  • Why has no company invented a tablet that works also as a cell phone?

    This seems like a fairly straight forward and do-able idea yet no one is jumping at the chance to be the first to combine the two technologies.

  • How much ohms does my motherboard support? ASRock Z270 Pro4 LGA 1151?

    Best answer: the hp and the device audio output MUST have the same impedance ( in ohms ) for transferring MAXIMUM power.....
    usually the sound card impedance is 32 ohms .....green jack ..
    so you need a matching transformer.
