05 Feb 2017 $30 Power Meter Is Designed To Weed Out Bad USB-C Cables [60168]
TechCrunch, January 27th, 2017

"Satechi couldn't have picked a better time to announce its USB-C Power Meter," opines Brian Heater in TechCrunch.

In November, Google issued a strongly worded advisement against third party fast charging.

Earlier this week, Dell recalled 101,000 batteries (bringing the total number north of 140,000) due to overheating concerns. And then, of course, there's Samsung, whose train wreck of a phablet really cemented the potential threat of exploding devices in mainstream consciousness through a pair of high profile recalls and constant reminders from flight attendants..."
