    Arctis 7x charging issue

    Hey all, For all the 7x owners out there, if you plug them in to charge whilst they are powered off does the red light come on to show they are charging? I have had two pairs now and neither show a charging light or even charge if plugged in when powered off. I have put a video on youtube to...

    Phone charging level increases only when switched off

    Recently my Blackview A10 has been difficult to charge when switched on. Turned off, it charges quickly with a variety of cables. Turned on, it charges not at all (even decreasing) or very slowly. Is there a fix?

    20% Tax confirmed for public charging points

    Not much of a surprise as the government tries to claw back lost fuel duty as vehicles switch to EV. After dropping tax incentives for EV over £30k they have confirmed public charging stations will have to pay 20% tax on energy instead of 5% they currently charge (see what I did there, lol)...

    Just watching a demo, 3kw via wireless charger embedded in the road. Apparently it's safe for pedestrians and other road users.

    EV Charging for terraced housing (no off-street parking) petition

    Hi all, I'm a new member here, so first post please be gentle! :) I am lobbying the government to agree a workable domestic street-parking EV charging system matters in terms of meaningful climate action AND hitting the Government's own 2030 EV target. There are many UK households (like ours)...

    PHEV : Is an off-peak tariff worthwhile for charging?

    I've been looking around for gas/electric deals so I'm fairly sure I can save by switching from Bulb. However, since I now have a PHEV, I've been thinking about whether it's worth specifically looking for a deal with off-peak usage. I've not been offered any on price comparison sites, so I'm...

    Dual Sense Controller Update v0210 - Slow Charging

    Anyone had any issues charging the DS5 in the official dock since the recent controller update (v0210)? It was charging really fast before but now it's taking ages, even when plugged into the wall. I think I could get a full charge from about 3 hours in the dock, but I tried it yesterday...

    Question iPad 6th Gen 13.6 charging and battery problems

    Hello all My 6th Gen iPad is having issues charging and also general battery consumption. Firstly, the device only charges when it's powered off. If I plug the charger in when it's powered on nothing happens - it just says "not charging". It does charge to 100% if charged when powered off...

    Charging Dock

    Quick one. Do the Series X controllers need their own charging station? My lad has got a venom one for his One but I just wondered if he’ll need a new charging station.

    Best compact camera which can photograph while charging?

    Hi folks, I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ100 which I have been using to make time lapse videos, but it keeps running out of juice too soon and won't work with the USB cable plugged in to charge (unlike the Sony RX-3000 which unfortunately doesn't produce anywhere near as good an image).

    Samsung Galaxy S20 Moisture detected in charging port

    Ok, so I cleaned my phone with an antiseptic cleaning wipe and a little must have got in to the charging port as the phone is now registering moisture in it. That was 4 hours ago and it doesn't seem to have dried yet. Should i just leave it overnight or get the bag of rice out now?
