Portable Chargers For Cell Phones, Tablets, and Laptops

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

Portable Chargers For Cell Phones, Tablets, and Laptops

Post by Arthur Mometer » Fri Nov 23, 2018 10:33 pm

Is there a single universal high capacity portable charger that will charge Apple Smart Phones, Androids, MacBooks, and PC Laptops? Making coffee and toast is optional. :)

This is a strange question for an engineering and DXing category. :wink:

That's because engineers are engineers and tend to know the answer to these types of questions. The radio engineers I know fix cars, airplanes, and just about any type of electrical, electronic, or mechanical device. Maybe not every engineer may fix all of these things, but taken as a whole, they do all of these things. I can't say that every station owner, manager, sales executive, program director, music director, announcer, voiceover producer, newsperson, or disk jockey does, although there are exceptions. Does that explain it?

It does, very well!! Thanks :razz

And it's quite true. Engineers know a lot of crap that can really help people. It makes me wonder how many engineers actually lurk on this board. We know stations owners are around, because when you badmouth them, they tend to peek their heads out.
