Lithium-ion batteries, which are found in smartphones and many other gadgets, aren’t the safest things in the world. Under certain circumstances, they can catch fire and explode, as clearly demonstrated by Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7.

Researchers at Stanford University are trying to solve this problem and make batteries safer. They have recently created an interesting lithium-ion battery that has a built-in “fire extinguisher” for safety reasons. The researchers have added a chemical compound called triphenyl phosphate to the plastic fibers that keep the positive and...

If you’re in the market for a pair of affordable earphones, most of the options are just about average – both in form and function. There’s cheap in-ear design and bass-heavy music that makes you question your love for music, and gives masses the perception that you need to spend big bucks for a great audio experience.

OnePlus wants to change that. Just like with the OnePlus 3/3T, the operative word for the company is ‘best value’, and while they’ve been successful in delivering that with smartphones, are they third time lucky with headphones?

The $49.99 OnePlus got all the hype, but didn’t impress many. Then there were the OnePlus Silver Bullets. Both of these weren’t bad earphones,...
