Non-Chinese Laptop Brands

Non-Chinese Laptop Brands

After observing China’s bad intentions it is clear that no country can trust China and Chinese companies anymore as they are secretly collecting user’s confidential data without their knowledge. They are able to do this because we use gadgets made by them and they have some known security flaws to spy us down. That’s where we come to replace Chinese machines from our life and laptop is one of them. If you already own a laptop, then don’t think of buying one again, instead, have better control on your laptop look for any suspicious software you have installed. Do you small research about is the hardware or software […]

Do Fanless Laptops Overheat?

Do Fanless Laptops Overheat?

No laptop overheats unless you are doing any intensive work or blocking the ventilation points. But fanless laptops are little different, they are made differently that it doesn’t require any sort of cooling fan, instead, fanless architecture utilizes laptop body to deprecate heat. What does a fanless laptop mean? In layman’s term, a laptop with no cooling fan installed is known fanless laptop. How can a laptop be fanless? Why not? Our modern mobiles and iPads are fanless even when we play heavy games on it. If they can manage to be fanless why not our laptops. Of course, we’ll see a huge performance loss for intensive workloads, […]

Sine Wave vs. Square Wave Inverter and which one is better?

Sine Wave vs. Square Wave Inverter and which one is better?

Just looking for a decent inverter for electricity backups. You need to understand what kind of inverters are available in the market. Usually, you’ll find Sine wave and Square Wave inverter. You can see below the image as in reference to how sine and square wave looks like. The sine wave is very similar to alternate current while Square wave is just mimicking the current waves but in the direct current style. But both the inverters can run appliances that run on alternate current. Sine wave inverters are recommended for household use because it is capable of smoothly running sensitive home appliances like television, refrigerator, computers, and laptops. […]

How Much Energy is Lost When Charging an Inverter Battery?

How Much Energy is Lost When Charging an Inverter Battery?

Batteries are the common backup solution for us, from our mobile to home inverters we do use batteries for backups. Mobile is a small thing to care about, but we do care about home inverters and connected batteries because they power our home during power outages. So, how much energy is lost when charging an inverter battery? Home inverters and inverter batteries aren’t the 100% efficient source for holding energy, on paper they are only ~60% efficient under any given situation. Rest is lost due to AC-DC conversion and other factors like battery type and its water level, temperature, charging speed and time, etc. 30 to 40% of […]

Does AMD Run Hotter 🔥 Than Intel?

Does AMD Run Hotter 🔥 Than Intel?

I’m not a fanboy of AMD products, but this is something which I get bored of recently. Users ask me that why are you suggesting an AMD build which heats up like toaster. In my experience, AMD products do run warmer than Intel, but that doesn’t mean hotter. It is just a couple of celsius up and down. It is on a manufacturer to control the minimum and higher temperatures for a specific CPU or GPU. The fact is AMD’s CPU, GPU, and any other product that exists are not a toaster. It is a myth which is living around us for many years. AMD with Ryzen refresh […]

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?

Why Are Solar Panels So Expensive?

Thinking of a green source of energy, that’s great. But while budgeting we come to know that solar panels are so expensive, much more expensive than we thought of. In this article we’ll see the main reasons why are solar panels so expensive. Reason #1 The main reason why Solar Panels or PV Panels cost so much because they make so little electricity. On average, a square meter space can generate around 200 watts, which means for the 1-kilowatt setup you’ll require around 5 square meters of open and sunny area with that much of solar panels. Since we install it on the roof area or on the […]

CPUs: Core Count vs Clock Speed, Which is Better?

CPUs: Core Count vs Clock Speed, Which is Better?

Being in the tech industry I am being asked numbers of times, in CPUs what matters the more, core counts or clock speed. Neither more core counts won’t be beneficial nor clock speed alone, what we need is the best mix of both. Let’s understand the concept in detail. Without going into CPU’s architecture or what magic manufacturer adds, I’d try to keep this as general as possible without using any technical jargon. More Cores = More Multitasking Higher Clock Speed = Faster Task Completion More cores can allow us to do multitasking, and higher clock speed enables us to complete tasks faster. I hope, you got my […]

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Getting Too Hot 🔥

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Getting Too Hot 🔥

I just moved from Intel i7 7700 to AMD Ryzen 7 3800X, and after all the assembly, installation, and setups I ran the benchmarking apps to see what Ryzen 7 3800X can do. At first look, the CPU’s temperatures were not normal to me, I never saw anything above 72 degrees Celsius with Intel i7 7700. While R7 3800X was jumping around 46-60-76 degrees Celsius, but considering a higher TDP CPU it is a normal thing. While I’m writing this article my CPU temperature is about 46. Just using the chrome browser (with 2 extra tabs), paint (editing below image), and hardware monitor app. Here I’m using default […]

How Many Solar Panels Does it Take to Charge a 150 AH Battery?

How Many Solar Panels Does it Take to Charge a 150 AH Battery?

If you’ve been planning to install an off-grid solar energy solution, it is an obvious thing one can ask: How many watts of solar panels do I need to charge a 150 AH battery? Or how much time it takes to 600 watts of the solar panels to charge a 150 AH battery full? In this article, we’ll explain the basic calculation of the solar panels’ capacity or wattage requirements to charge a battery bank. First, let us calculate the battery watts. Inverter batteries come in 12 Volts capacity, let’s say you have a 150 AH battery bank then multiply the battery’s AH with its Volts to calculate […]
