As portable devices have become more prevalent, power banks have become the must have for anyone who spends any time away from an electrical outlet. Typically power banks offer a microUSB or a USB Type-C port for charging and while many devices have now adopted microUSB or USB-C, many devices still require AC power, which is a problem if your power bank only supports USB charging.

The monitor’s misbehavior stemmed from a poor EMI shielding design flaw. When placed near a Wi-Fi router, the display would exhibit abnormal flickering or turn off altogether. LG has acknowledged this as being a design issue and advised users to place the display at least a few meters away from their router.
This solution obviously doesn’t work for users with limited office space, sparking outrage from disgruntled customers who paid nearly $1,000 for what they believed would be a [...]
