Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
With the imminent launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series, OnePlus definitely hopes to hitch a ride on the buzz train as the upgrade season begins. newly announced oneplus 12 Come February 6th, however, you can currently get a free storage upgrade if you preorder before then. Both Amazon and Best Buy are selling the 512GB model with 16GB of RAM in black or green for $799.99 ($100 off). You’ll notice that the price is similar to the price of the lower-end, 256GB model, so there’s no good reason to double the storage if you’re planning on buying OnePlus’ latest Android phone at launch.
We’ve already spent some personal time with the OnePlus 12, and while it’s not blowing away the competition in any specific area, we can tell you that in value for money it compares well to top contemporaries in its segment. Is. It has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor with 12GB of RAM, a 6.8-inch display, improved water resistance, and an advanced Hasselblad-tuned camera array. We also finally get wireless charging back (even at a faster rate of 50W) after OnePlus tried so hard to convince us we didn’t need it.
I don’t know about you, but I’m almost ready for glamping season. If you’re someone who likes a side of bits, bytes and streams with her flair, Jackery’s Explorer 1000 Portable Power Station (named for its 1002-watt-hour capacity) is a great pickup that’s currently on sale at Amazon for $650 ($350 off) when you clip the on-page coupon. There is also a $400 coupon available on the bundle that includes Jackery’s 200W solar panel, making the pair $1,249. If you prefer, you can also just buy the power station today and get the solar panels later (which are also currently discounted to $140 at Amazon).
The Jackery Explorer 1000 has three AC outlets that can output up to 1000W, as well as USB-C Power Delivery and a USB-A port. According to Jackery, a 200W solar panel (or two 100W panels) can fully charge it in six hours, though your mileage may vary depending on exact conditions. You can also charge it with standard AC power or use your car battery thanks to the included car charging port. The LED display shows how much capacity the battery has, as well as how long it will take to fully charge.
Some outdoor purists may blame you for carrying so many electronics into the woods that you’ll need one of these, but don’t let them. There’s nothing wrong with bringing a powered hot plate or emergency communications equipment on a camping trip. Plus, it also works great as an emergency home backup during power outages. I have this exact unit with two solar panels, and it was a boon during the pipe-bursting, grid-draining deep freeze in Dallas a few years ago.
