Nice phone!

I’m starting to look for a replacement for my Nexus 5X. This 5T looks interesting, but unfortunately it says it’s not compatible with the Verizon network. I’ll have to keep looking.

Got my second Samsung 250gb T5 USB-C SSD today. I’m using it to clone my new Lenovo Yoga 720 laptop.

I order an “F” type, and they send me “J”. Ugh…

Anyway, not that big of a deal for how I’m going to use it.

I guess I’ll use my Anker desktop charger then. I use that for all my other devices.

Oh, I suggest you should try using its Dash charger technology instead of the usual slow or 1A charger. It’s NOT only for convenience. Here’s why?

It’s like this: In OnePlus’ website about this technology, there is some kind of circuitry in its original charging cable that though the charging is fast, the battery does not heat up because that special circuitry routes the heat back to the power supply adaptor, INSTEAD of the battery. Have you noticed the phone barely gets warm when its original charger set is used?

I bought several micro-usb-to-usb-C adaptors connectors just in case the original usb-C cable malfunctions. I tried it once (used my iPhone’s USB adaptor with a good micro-USB cable and put in the usb-C adaptor) and the phone’s back portion heat up a lot more with the slow or low charging rate!

At the upper-left portion of the phone, the is a led that glows purple when Dash charging (original adaptor/red cable should be used) and yellow if some other charger is used at a slower, ‘normal’ rate.

And it’s been a well-known fact that heat is one of the major factors that brings lilo to its earlier demise.

I have charged my 5T with the Dash charger and it does charge fast, but I’m not so concerned about speed. I’m more concerned about convenience. I’ve done some google researching, and the general consensus is it’s ok to use a no-oem high-quality charger like an Anker. Also, I have portable chargers from Xiaomi and Anker I want to be able to use in case of a power outage. All I care about is that these aftermarket chargers won’t damage my new phone. From what I’ve read they won’t.

Nice. I have some as well. This just showed up. I got a pair of Himalayan Natural Air Purifier Salt Rock Lamps. Each one is handmade and unique. They use a 25 watt incandescent bulb and comes with a line cord dimmer. I bought them for the looks, not the so called air purifying qualities. !{width:90%}https://i.imgur.com/RJeA9AB.jpg![/quote]

My wife has one and we love it... it is a very easy light when it is time for relaxing...

LMAO sorry.... It is a laser ranger finder.. I have wanted one for a while but any that go out to a decent range get stupid expensive... This one was not cheap but reasonable... And just from goofing off with it today reasonably accurate.

Yep, the TZ4 has been a faithful performer for almost 10 years; worn a little about the corners. Wink

I thought he might have been LedBuy. Who knows? All I do know he was here to cause problems. I’m glad SB took care of it quickly.

As l posted earlier, l think OnePlus’ Dash charging is better for the battery than the usual lower rates. As l pointed out earlier, my battery gets more hot using the ‘normal’ rates than the Dash charging technology in my OnePlus.

l tried the lower, slower charging rates thinking it should be better but because the Dash charging technique has a special circuitry that routes back the heat to the psu, only the psu gets hot.

ln fact, l notice my battery’s performance is as good as when l first started using my phone, going into its 3rd year.

I like what I’m seeing. Notice that the battery was only 27.5 degrees C?. Just ordered the Dash car charger.

One more personal technique of mine to prolong my battery’s cycle life is to avoid having the battery fully charged the whole night and instead just charge it the next morning instead since it doesn’t take long to charge it 80% using the oem Dash charging anyway.

It’s a well-known fact that a high SOC (state-of-charge) is detrimental to lithium-ions.
…and more detrimental is high heat situations.

Got a Dash car charger for my OnePlus 5T, and a new Watts kitchen sink filtered water faucet to replace my old leaky one.

Also just got a handheld laser distance meter from gearbest.
