realme launches MagDart, fast magnetic wireless charging tech

The fastest of its kind to date

More people are slowly adapting to wireless charging but realme takes it a step further with MagDart. It’s their first fast magnetic wireless charging technology.

To showcase its fancy new tech, realme showed off four different devices: the 50W MagDart Charger (fastest), 15W MagDart Charger (thinnest), 2-in-1 MagDart Power Bank, and the realme Flash — a concept smartphone that supports MagDart.

50W MagDart Charger

This cube-ish contraption works as you might expect. You snap it onto a supported smartphone and promises to get a 4,500mAh battery from zero to 100 percent in less than an hour.

realme applied its active air cooling system on the 50W MagDart Charger so things don’t go boom or uncomfortably hot. It has powerful but compact fan that keeps things cool as it juices up the phone.

15W MagDart Charger

The 15W MagDart Charger sacrifices speed in favor of a thinner frame — 3.9mm to be exact. That’s 26 percent thinner than the 50W MagDart Charger according to realme.

However, just because it isn’t as fast as its beefier counterpart, it doesn’t mean it goes at a snail’s pace. This thing takes a 4,500mAh battery from zero to 100 in 90 mins. That’s about a feature length film or about three full repeats of TWICE’s Perfect World Album which you should totally listen to.

2-in-1 MagDart Power Bank

Again, this one functions as it names suggests. It’s a MagDart Power Bank that comes with a base so you can prop it up as if it’s a wireless charger. This appears to be the handiest and most versatile of the bunch.

realme didn’t share the expected charging times but based on its size and make, it’s likely closer to 15W than 50W. We’re speculating that’s about an hour of zero to 100 percent for something with a 4,500mAh battery.

There really isn’t much to say about this concept phone for now as it appears to have been made specifically to showcase MagDart. That said, it means realme is close to really ready to launch a market version of a phone that supports MagDart.

We reckon it’s sooner rather than later since it would be shame to have all these MagDart tech and accessories without a smartphone to use them on. Speaking of accessories, realme also went out of their way to make the following:

MagDart Beauty Light

Designed for portrait photography and gives an extra light for selfies.

MagDart Wallet

Has a kickstand and can hold three standard credit cards.

MagDart Case

Turns the realme GT into something that’s compatible with MagDart tech. Convenient.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry

Published

on

Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5

Published

Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
