The save icon thing is kinda fun to think about. It stopped making sense well before floppies went away (but after they stopped being floppy!), and the majority of files were saved to internal hard drives, but it’s universally recognized as indicating ‘this button will save your file’. What would you change it to, other than the word ‘save’, that would be as ubiquitously sensible?
@Aspirant_Fool Same with the “phone handset” icon for making phone calls, it’s unique enough that people will associate it with the action even if most phones don’t look like that any more. Otherwise it would just be a mouth next to a rectangle or something.
New campaign “Save the save icon” Growing up,# meant number,then it meant pound sign on your phone,and then it became a hashtag.What’s next for the venerable symbol? Bad enough I had to download an acronym dictionary to decipher incoming texts.Smokers…use your lighter proudly Bring back flip top removable ash trays in the door handles Bring back the front tip window And lastly,put the F’n dimmer switch back on the dead pedal where it belongs damn it Throw the new generation in that car,and enjoy the look of confusion and befuddlement on their faces for a change
@eagerbeaver@mike808 Right Also,not available as standard or optional equipment,was the suicide knob.You could get a ticket for one in my day. Though I never could figure out how to attach one to my saddle
@werehatrack So I did some math. The Galaxy Tab S8 has an 8,000 mAh 3.7 volt battery, so 29.7 Wh. At 2.1 amp and 5 volts, the charger delivers 10.5 W. So it can charge the Galaxy Tab S8 in 3 hours. It won’t recharge it while you run to the store, but if your kids are in the back seat on a road trip, it is plenty of power to keep them in games the whole time.
The latest iPads have 28.6 Wh batteries, so the math is the same for them.
As long as the tablet can last for at least 3 hours of usage, this can keep it topped off indefinitely.
Aduro Products’ own product information page does not show the info, including the Manual tab. Might Meh or any current owner know or have access to the manual know if the product is tested/certified by any product safety agency, e.g. UL?
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. That very thin-looking gauge cable to the extended 3-USB-A-port portion does not seem like it can sustain a continuous 6.3 A current without, uh, melting , catching fire , etc.?
@bartsimpson good points. I went and checked on mine, it looks like the total power is limited (also possible mine has different specs or is a slightly different version). Here’s the specs from the back of my unit:
