Apple could be forced to abandon its Lightning cable by EU regulators

  Apple could be forced to abandon its Lightning cable by EU regulators European lawmakers are pushing for a universal mobile phone charger that could mean the end to Apple's Lightning cable. Members of the European Parliament are calling for "binding measures for chargers to fit all mobile phones and other portable devices," according to a statement issued on Monday after a debate.

It's hard not to geek out about the release of Samsung's Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. One of the most anticipated features is, of course, 5G capability, a development for which carriers are finally prepared. But Samsung is also pushing boundaries with its HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display and 64-megapixel telephoto lens, featuring up to 3X optical zoom and up to 30X digital zoom.

If any of those features excite you, you can read more about them in our hands-on look. But what should also excite you are all of the potential accessories to pair with your new S20 or S20+. From phone cases to battery packs, there are plenty to choose from out there, and we've highlighted a few that are sure to streamline your experience:

Last week, it was reported that Rivers permanently moved out of San Diego and to Florida. "What this means football-wise is to be determined but it was time for us to move back closer to home," Rivers said in the text message to ESPN.

Gear4

When it comes to cases, Gear4 has a huge inventory that even expands to tablets and smart watches, and its options for the Galaxy S20 and S20+ are particularly vibrant.

The Hackney 5G Case has been explicitly engineered for optimal 5G connection. The signal sparing technology utilizes patented Signal Plus Technology, and despite being incredibly thin, it's incredibly durable for its width, rated for drops of 13 feet. Plus, the packaging is constructed from fully recyclable materials, and Gear4's cases are made with some reused and recycled materials. The Hackney 5G Case is available now for $49.99 on zagg.com.

A $1 billion initiative aims to bring EV chargers to highways and rural areas

  A $1 billion initiative aims to bring EV chargers to highways and rural areas While Tesla, Electrify America and others technically have nationwide EV charging networks, they don't really provide full coverage -- many rural areas are far from any kind of charger infrastructure. ChargePoint believes it can help close that gap, though. It's teaming with NATSO on a $1 billion effort to bring EV chargers to over 4,000 travel centers and truck stops (which NATSO represents) by 2030, with a particular focus on highways and rural areas. This could both spur EV adoption in rural towns and help with long-distance travel for everyone, ChargePoint said.

Chargers announce end of Philip Rivers era, say he'll enter free agency

  Chargers announce end of Philip Rivers era, say he'll enter free agency Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will be moving on. The team and player took the rare step of announcing on the team’s website that Rivers will be entering free agency via a joint statement. "As we talked through various scenarios, it became apparent that it would be best for Philip and the Chargers to turn the page on what has truly been a remarkable run,” Chargers GM Tom Telesco said in a statement. It’s a massive shift for the Chargers, and for Rivers too.Philip Rivers made eight Pro Bowls with ChargersPhilip Rivers came to Chargers in 2004, and became the team’s starting quarterback in 2006. He took over for a guy named Drew Brees.

Satechi

Satechi's excellent tech is often focused on Apple. But there are also plenty of options for Samsung users.

One such option is the Qi-Certified wireless charger. This sleek aluminum charging pad is capable of charging speeds up to 1.4 times faster than standard pads. It works wonders for a multitude of phone types, including the previous-gen S10 and S10+. The only stipulation with Samsung is that you may have to use QC 2.0 or Samsung's included cable and adapter to take advantage of fast charging, but that shouldn't present a problem for those who buy the new phones.

Satechi's slim charging pad is available for $34.99 on its website or $29.99 on amazon.com.

Anker

Anker puts the power in powerful, so consider pairing your S20 or S20+ with one of its portable batteries.

The PowerCore 10000 PD Redux is ultra-compact and easily fits into a pocket or bag. Yet it contains a lot of juice — enough to fully charge an iPhone XS or Galaxy S10 more than twice. It'll do it fast, too, thanks to its PowerIQ technology in the USB-A port and the fast-charging capabilities of the USB-C port. You can even charge two devices simultaneously. On top of all that, the matte black shell and blue LED indicator lights make it an attractive option.

Report: Chargers expected to ‘make a push’ for Tom Brady

  Report: Chargers expected to ‘make a push’ for Tom Brady Could the TB12 Method come to Los Angeles?Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, summing up a huge day for the Chargers, reported live on air that the Bolts are expected to be among the teams that will “make a push” to sign Tom Brady this spring.

Anker's PowerCore 10000 PD Redux is available for $45.99 on its website or on amazon.com.

More power-related products from Anker include the Anker Powerline+ USB-C to USB-C cables, perfect for charging your S20 or S20+. The double-braided nylon exterior and durable connectors make these some of the toughest cables around. You'll even get a carrying pouch, so you can easily take the cable on the go. The cables come in gray, red and white, and span a variety of lengths, from 1 to 10 feet.

The Anker Powerline+ USB-C to USB-C Cable starts at $6.99 on amazon.com.

Galaxy Buds+

The Samsung fans out there are going to want to pick up a pair of Samsung's latest Galaxy Buds+.

Not only will they match the phone, but more importantly, you'll get great sound out of them if they're anything like the previous Galaxy Buds. What they improve upon, among other things, is battery life. Along with the charging case, the Buds+ add up to 22 hours of listening. This is a significant improvement over the previous gen's 12.5 hours measured in our review. What's equally appealing, however, is the fact that a three-minute charge at low battery will provide a whole hour of listening.

The Galaxy Buds+ will be available on Samsung's website on Feb. 14.

PopSocket

For many of us, a phone is not complete without a PopSocket. As such, we'd be remiss not to mention a few designs, like The Child Cup. This $15 PopGrip design prominently displays Baby Yoda holding a wooden cup in his adorable little hands. For something a little more glamorous, try the Sparkle Black PopGrip, featuring black glitter paper with a dash of pink, purple and yellow. After all, PopGrips are swappable, so you don't have to limit yourself to just one.

If you're after utility, PopSockets has an expansive collection of wallets to stick to the back of your phone, aptly named the PopWallet and PopWallet+. These start at $25, and feature solid colors and designs, like this one with a design featuring white circles on a black background. And yes, they're compatible with wireless chargers.

Note: The prices above reflect the retailer's listed price at the time of publication.
