British technology accessories brand STK has launched the fast fuel 15k powerbank, which can power a phone six times thanks to the Qualcomm Quick Charge built into the charger.
British technology accessories brand STK has brought one of its simplest but most effective products to South Africa. It has launched the fast fuel 15k powerbank, which can power a phone six times. Thanks to the Qualcomm Quick Charge built into the charger, it also charges four times quicker than a conventional charger.
STK says it is “taking the expectations of portable charging and raising them”. The Quick Charge technology can dramatically decrease the amount of time spent tethered to an outlet, giving a device 5 for 5 — that’s 5 hours of battery life from 5 minutes of charging.
A built-in LED indicator clearly shows exactly how much power the pack has left. The device is made with the modern, dual-device user, so it comes with two USB ports for charging two devices at the same time. This also makes the fast fuel 15K a great accessory among friends, allowing two people to charge at the same time.
Wrapped in a soft matte rubberised material, the fast fuel 15K offers a luxurious soft feel to touch. It is available in a stylish black or a bright green, which is easy to see in the depth of a bag.
STK have also released the 10000mAh fast fuel 10K. Supporting the same Qualcomm Quick Charge technology as its older brother, this power bank will charge a phone up to four times.
Smash hits the Nintendo Switch
Super Smash Bros. delivers what the fans wanted in the latest “Ultimate” instalment, writes BRYAN TURNER.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the latest addition to the popular Nintendo Smash series, has landed on the Nintendo Switch with a bang, selling 5-million copies in the first week of its release. The game has been long-anticipated since the console’s release, as many fans consider
It features 74 playable fighters, 108 stages, almost 1300 Spirit characters to collect while playing, and a single-player Adventure mode that took about three days (or 28 hours) of gameplay to complete. The game offers far more gameplay than its predecessors, making it the Smash game that gives its players the best bang for their buck.
For those new to the game, the goal is to fight opponents and build up their damage score (draining their health) to knock them off the stage eventually. This makes the game seem chaotic, as many players jump around the platforms as if they were on quicksand, in order to avoid being hit by the other players.
It also services two kinds of players: the competitive and the casual.
Competitive players can be matched on the online service by skill ranking to enjoy playing with similarly high-skilled opponents. This is especially important in e-sports training for the game, and for players wanting to master combos against other human players. The casual gamer is also catered for, with eight-player chaos and button-mashing to see who comes out luckiest. This segment is also important for those wanting to learn how to play.
Training mode is also a place to go for those learning to play. It offers “CPU” players that are graded by intensity to train as a single player to learn a character’s moves, combos and general fighting style. More challenging CPU players can also be used by competitive players to train when there isn’t a Wi-Fi connection available.
Direct Play features in this game, allowing two players with two Switch consoles to play against each other over a direct connection – no Wi-Fi needed. This is especially useful to those who want to have a social gaming element on the go, similar to that of the cable connector of the Gameboy.
