CHUWI UBook Fire Hazard. Battery Swollen

Hi everyone, I’m probably one of the few who have had swollen battery issues. This time, the most recent battery issue came with the CHUWI UBook tablet that I’ve had for a few years now. Somehow, even with the device powered off, the battery decided to swell really bad that it bent the tablet itself. Fortunately, even with the tablet bended, the screen itself seems to not have been cracked. However, the battery is severely swollen. I was able to…

I used the Windows Recovery menu to boot straight to the UEFI settings and was able to turn off the fTPM setting as required to perform a BIOS update. I saved and exited the BIOS but forgot to press the key to go to the BIOS settings…

Amazon Orders never shipped?

Yesterday, I ordered 2 USB 3.0 Hubs to use in a project I’m working. Today, I woke up with a notification of an undeliverable order, while the other one has a tracking code, yet it shows as not shipped but that would be delivered today: The only order I actually received is the 3 Vantec 12.7mm enclosures I ordered in the week. It’s interesting that when I click on the “Undeliverable” USB Hub, it says the order is being prepared:…

What happened to the AmazonBasics Standard 6-Outlet Power Strip?

What happened to the AmazonBasics Standard 6-Outlet Power Strip?

That is the question I ask myself. I was going to order an extra 2 of those, but it seems they are no longer available. I originally ordered these power strips back in 2017. They have been working as they should and even the “Protected” light is still up. I even ordered one bundle last year! Now, clicking on the items from the order history brings a 404 page. It seems that these item listings have been removed: It’s a…
