Back in early October, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk promised to show us “The D”, and he delivered with the Model S P85D. That AWD electric sedan pumps out a healthy 691hp and an eye-popping 864 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels. The vehicle is fast enough to make the already quick Model S P85 look like a Prius in a drag... Read more...

Battery life is a constant headache for laptop users, and lugging around a bulky charger to stay plugged in when necessary is part of the annoyance. It seems ridiculous to carry around a svelte little ultrabook only to have to also schlep a charger that’s twice as thick. FINsix is working to change that problem... Read more...
We've heard rumblings of this happening for some time, and it looks like the fire has finally been properly lit: the European Union is one step closer to passing a law that would mandate a single, universal charger for mobile device sin order to "reduce waste, costs, and hassle for users." It's a move that we... Read more...
In the world of technology, it's fairly tough to get the myriad companies that make our gadgets tick work together. They've all got plenty going on within their own camp, and they all feel that their take on a given technology or approach is the ideal one. Every so often, you'll find that companies are willing to work... Read more...
You know those cute little white cubes that ship with pretty much every iPod touch, iPhone and iPad? Those are charging blocks, with a simply USB slot in there that's used for charging just about any portable device on the planet. And for years now, something similar has been shipping with -- you guessed it -- pretty... Read more...
Wireless charging has been around for years in some way or another, but there's one thing that really keeps it from booming: incompatibility. Also, inefficiency. Although the odds are against it, Chrysler is pushing forward with an industry first: in-vehicle wireless charging. And here, we can totally see people adopting a technology where... Read more...
With the mobile world exploding, there's a huge market growing for charging solutions. Keeping your gadgets charged has always been a top priority for heavy users, but now it's becoming entirely more mainstream. PowerTrekk is a company that's looking to mix cutting-edge charging technology with the mobile space, and they have created a fuel-cell... Read more...
Many people have a box or drawer full of old chargers for our old cell phones. Although the charger may function just fine, due to special connection types, we often can't reuse a charger when we switch phones. After all these years of dealing with different chargers and various connections between phones and other devices, some good news... Read more...
Wireless charging still has some ways to go before it's truly useful across a broad spectrum of devices. Right now, wireless charging is usually limited to a small pad for charging up phones, and even then you need an accessory case to make the phone compatible. Until wireless charging modules are actually built into phones (the Palm Touchstone... Read more...
We aren't quite living in a world where cords have no place, and while companies like PowerMat are hoping to change that, inductive charging is still in its infancy. But if you're an owner of an Apple Magic Mouse, inductive charging is coming to you. The Magic Mouse, which has a multi-touch surface, has one main... Read more...
Lenovo is known for a few things. Namely, the ThinkPad, the IdeaPad and the ThinkCentre lines of computers. Lenovo notebooks in particular are used heavily in businesses, as their rugged frames and iconic tracking point. But here's something you probably don't think about: the power adapter that ships with Lenovo's ThinkPad line. It's just... Read more...
One charger to rule them all? That's the idea, at least. We have heard conversation back-and-forth over this matter for some time now, with certain entities feeling that a single charging standard for all mobile phones would benefit the consumer greatly. Of course, ideas such as these are always easier stated than accomplished, but there's... Read more...
What could the world use more of these days? Well, that's a loaded question now that we think about it, but still, it's tough to deny that longer lasting batteries could be an excellent answer. In lieu of that, we suppose newer, smaller chargers will have to suffice. This week, Targus is announcing their lightest... Read more...
Earth Day was this week, and it seems that it was a much bigger deal in 2010 than in year's past. Maybe it had something to do with those tons of gallons of oil spilling off of the Gulf of Mexico (we're sure the Earth loved that), or maybe this is just what happens when everyone gets on the "green" bandwagon. Either way, PC Treasures and Digital... Read more...
It's sort of funny when think about it. The iPhone accessory market seems to be nearly as big as the phone itself; it's rare to find an iPhone owner with no accessories whatsoever, and with that large touch screen, many people are looking for ways to protect that panel and the corners surrounding it. It's no surprise to find that iPhone cases... Read more...
We don't exactly get along with batteries very often here at HotHardware. Most of 'em tend to underwhelm us, and the one's that impress us (Apple's iPad rings a bell) are few and far between. Mophie loves the fact that most handheld devices have paltry battery life results, because that very problem encourages consumers to seek out solutions... Read more...
If you've been in the market for an iPad, you should probably give our review a look first. After that, you should probably be aware that charging Apple's first tablet is somewhat of a burden, particularly compared to just how easy it is to charge an iPhone, iPod touch or most anything else from the company. The iPad... Read more...
AT&T, as you may well know, is a U.S. cellphone operator. They provide cell service to millions of people, and they are the exclusive U.S. home of the iPhone. What AT&T is not, however, is a hardware company. Or maybe they are, judging by their most recent announcement. The company that sells wireless service... Read more...
