mJoose cover the strengthening smartphone signal by 100 times is awarded on CES 2016

1 year, 3 months ago
We welcome our readers on pages of the blog iCover! For certain that who likes to travel, wander about mountain paths or it is forced to dangle in permanent business trips between settlements as the problem of a poor signal or dead bands in a network of the mobile operator is known to nobody else. And even the most modern and fancy smartphone at such moments is not more valuable than an empty jar from under Cola at all. The protective cover for the mJoose smartphone allowing to strengthen a desired signal by 100 times can become effective solution of a problem. Such number is given by his creators, giving as argument Pro results of tests of the independent accredited laboratory. The innovation cover of mJoose 3 in 1 was highly appreciated at the CES 2016 exhibition where it received awards in two nominations at once.

Green power and nuclear silicon

1 year, 3 months ago
I think very few people are aware that all renewable power depends on work of research nuclear reactors today. It is about the nuclear alloyed silicon (NAS) received in it which is used for production of high-voltage power semiconductors without which RES are impossible. And now is more detailed.

12-pulsny rectifiers (hang at the left) ultrahigh-voltage transmission lines are important consumers nuclear too - the alloyed silicon.

Jaq — smartphone charger on fuel elements

1 year, 3 months ago


The external accumulator — the excellent solution allowing to load a gadget with the sat-down accumulator at any time in any place. But if the external battery is discharged, and nearby there is no socket — it can already be a problem. Itself I use the external battery, and quite often I forget to load her, unfortunately.

The Swedish startup of MyFC decided "to invent the bicycle", and created own version of the charger. It does not demand feed by energy, for work only hydrogen is necessary. The device is called Jaq, and it represents charging on fuel elements, working at hydrogen.

Decrease in brightness when heating at LED lamps

1 year, 3 months ago
Testing LED lamps I found in them one feature. Practically at all lamps brightness decreases after warming up.



In 5-30 minutes after inclusion the luminous flux of lamps decreases by 11-12%. When the lamp got warm, its brightness does not change any more.

Tesla Model S Fire Norway

The electric vehicle Tesla Model S of 2014 of release burned down at the Norwegian station of fast charging. Reports the Norwegian NRK resource about it. In the machine at this time was nobody so there are no victims. The electric car lit up after the owner of the electric car put it on charging and left. Now the police investigates this incident, but meanwhile there is no distinct explanation for the incident.

It is interesting that ignition of the electric vehicle — more complex problem, than ignition of a normal car. The matter is that in the majority of electric cars lithium accumulators are installed. Lithium very actively reacts with water therefore attempt to extinguish the electric vehicle water can lead to sad effects. The Norwegian firefighters had to use the special foam fire extinguisher for fire liquidation.

M5BAT — new approach to accumulation of the electric power at the industrial level

1 year, 3 months ago
Today's development of power industry provides the increasing implementation of renewable energy resources. Also developments in the field of improvement of quality and reliability of power supply continue.
As one of candidate solutions of these tasks is used idea of creation of substations with rechargeable batteries of large volume near consumers. One of solutions which is planned to commissioning in 2016 in Germany is presented in this article.

The Finnish scientists saw the big future of Russia in use of renewable energy

According to the forecast of specialists from Technology university Lappeenranta (Finland), in 15 years Russia has every chance to become the leader in use of renewable energy in on the Euroasian continent. According to the estimates of scientists, creation in Eurasia of the system, for 100% using "pure" energy will cost approximately twice cheaper, than construction of the necessary number of nuclear power stations of similar total power.

According to specialists, the system will be the most effective at consolidation as it is possible bigger number of regions of Eurasia in the power pool system. The more power networks will be united in one "supernetwork", the less there will be a need for the buffer gears intended for accumulation and storage of excess energy. Besides, calculations for model were made of the assumption that instead of use of natural gas of the enterprise will pass to the gas extracted due to the electricity received from renewable sources (for example, on the hydrogen extracted from water).

In research use only parts of energy which goes for receipt of electricity and on the industrial purposes was considered by that, and such things as heating and transport were not considered. Research was conducted for studying of opportunities of use of renewable energy resources on the Euroasian continent.

The private electrofilling network is going to set in Ukraine already to the middle of 2016 about 50 new an elektrozaryadok

1 year, 4 months ago
The network of toka electrogas stations put into operation already the third electrorefueling station in Kiev in Ukraine. Motorists will be able to load the electric vehicles on the parking of the Metro supermarket on Grigorenko Avenue in the Ukrainian capital now. However the toka company is not going to be satisfied with what has already been achieved, and is already going to put to the middle of the next year into operation in addition about 50 electrogas stations across all Ukraine.

Self-made laser sword — as it works?

1 year, 4 months ago


The user of YouTube with Styropyro nickname creates different interesting laser pieces for a long time. The laser harp, a laser gun (it is a lot of laser guns) and other things it lets out as hot pies. This time Styropyro decided to create a powerful laser sword (and it is not its first attempt).

Power of "sword" makes 7 W. According to the creator it is seven times more than regulation, such system is dangerous as it is capable to blind the person instantly. Of course, inside there is no that rare stone which each Jedi has to get and insert into a handle independently. But also what is impresses.

Switzerland is going to unify chargers for phones by 2017

1 year, 4 months ago


The authorities of Switzerland are going to oblige all developers of mobile devices to use the uniform charger by 2017. In spite of the fact that characteristics of the uniform standard are not mentioned, it is possible to assume that it will be micro USB. Apple it is necessary to refuse the standard in Switzerland, having passed to the mentioned standard.

Except that Apple has own standard for connectors, this company practices also use of DRM-PO for determination of the certified cables which are on sale at the price in $19 for piece (the speech about Lightning for iPhone 5 and 6).
