Energizer Power Max P16K Pro smartphone arrives at MWC with 16,000 mAh battery

Energizer wants to make a big splash at MWC this year, and it’s definitely going to achieve just that with the Power Max P16K Pro smartphone that it will unveil on that occasion. The company is best known for its batteries, so it makes perfect sense that its next handset will have battery life as a huge focus. Keyword: huge.

Review: The Power of TouchID in a Padlock

Apple may be moving to facial recognition, but I still like Touch ID. And if you like fingerprint identification, and wish more devices in your life supported it, check out the Tapplock One ($ 99). I saw it at CES and had the opportunity to test it out.

The first thing you notice is how heavy duty, and heavy, the padlock is. It’s not cheap, but the company periodically has sales and offers volume discounts. You can also unlock it via Bluetooth and Morse Code, so friends and family members could use it even without registering their fingerprints, although each lock can support up to 500 fingerprints. The battery should last one year and it recharges in two hours using Tapplock’s own proprietary cable. I’ve seen other locks that use a 9-volt battery as a backup power source, so that would have been nice in an emergency.

Pros

  • Fingerprint reader for a padlock
  • Heavy duty and water resistant
  • Free companion app
  • Volume discounts
  • Bluetooth and Morse Code unlocking options

Cons

  • Proprietary charging cable
  • Heavy

Final Verdict

The Tapplock One delivers the power of Touch ID in a padlock form.
