Sometimes Just Surfing For Stuff Reveals a Need You Did Not Know You Had Such as a Nice Charger for Multiple Tablets and or Phones

So today I was poking around the Inter-Web and found a product I actually need! A 3 port USB charger than can handle the HiBook and the soon to be received HI12 and my phone!

1 charger, 3 devices and all at a fairly low price. It will get the job done and allow me to bring my regular 3.0 A charger for the Chuwi to work, which will work with either the HiBook or the Hi12, depending on which device I decide to use. The output is only 2.4 amps but that is more than enough for a late afternoon recharge. It also means I can plug in my  BLU Studio smartphone at the same time and easily recharge it on those rare occasions where it actually needs charging, usually every 3 days or more.

Sure 2.4 amps isn’t optimal, but the HiBook will end up back at 100% when down at 60% or so, while I am eating lunch with the BLU 2.0 amp charger, so 2.4 amps is definitely going to do the trick and save me outlets.

The HiBook News Today’s Edition – Minor Issues With Boosting The Ram Speed to 1600Mhz

Today’s subject is primarily concerning the HiBook. A few days back I boosted the RAM speed up to what it should be, which is 1600 MHz. The factory defaults are set at 1066 MHz and I am always willing to get a tiny bit more performance.

In the process of boosting the RAM speed I also went ahead and flashed the bios to the latest version which was supposed to help with some WiFi issues. The only issues I have had are with my LogiTech mouse which although I believed I had figured out, I guess I hadn’t. Occasionally it won’t recognize the mouse until I go into Device Manager and unplug and re-insert the wireless dongle.  I have another wireless mouse that works just fine. It happens to be one of those ultra cheap $1.50 deals you can find on Amazon.

So that eliminates the micro-USB port and the OTG cable. That leaves me with the thought that the Logitech could simply be going bad or that the increased memory speed is somehow messing with the device manager in Windows 10.  I shall continue to try different things, but  in the meantime I have ordered a less crappy cheap mouse from Amazon, the very best that $3.79 can buy!

As for my return process with the Chuwi Hi12, that seems to be going well. They have shipped the replacement Tablet and according to the email it should arrive in less than 2 weeks. They also reimbursed me for 50% of the return shipping cost and that was okay by me. So once again, we play the waiting game for the new tablet PC but I believe that this time I will get a good one.

That is all for now,

Tim

Just tweaking this server a bit. A shorter URL will now work for most folks.

Chuwi HiBook Pro Still on Sale For Only $180!

The Chuwi HiBook is what this site is actually running on as I write this post. The HiBook Pro is the very same device with a bigger battery and an incredible display!

At a mere $180, this is one of the best deals you will find out there for a 10.1 inch tablet! The specs are listed below…

  • Windows 10 64 bit/Android 5.1
  • Intel Z8300 Processor
  • 2560 x 1600 display! (maybe the best display of any tablet in this class)
  • 4 GB Ram
  • 64 GB on-board eMMC storage
  • microSD support for up to 64 GB cards.
  • WiFi a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery: 8000 mAh

I certainly wish I had purchased this version over the standard HiBook, which is a great tablet, but the bigger battery and better display and low price make this one a winner! You can find it right here for about 1 more day, they only have 7 left.

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Those are fairly stellar prices for a 10 .1 inch table with the following specs:

  • OS: Android 5.1, Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz ( up to 1.84GHz )

If you are like me and run a Bluetooth keyboard this becomes very attractive.

Below you will find a video review, keep in mind this tablet has been around for quite awhile…

That is all for this evening,
