VTOMAN Jump 1500 expandable power station review: More battery for less money

When it comes to portable power stations, I’m inclined to say that the ability to store and carry with you a significant amount of energy is priceless. But of course these days you can put a price tag on nearly anything. With portable power stations, that’s usually about $1/watt and $1/watt-hour, at least with the big names in the industry. But with the introduction of several new competitors to this growing industry, units like the VTOMAN Jump 1500 and its expandable auxiliary battery are helping lower prices on these convenient new forms of energy storage.

Cadillac Lyriq first drive: A year early and dollar long at $60K

GM flew us out to beautiful Park City Utah to review the Cadillac Lyric EV last week. It was our first hands-on drive of GM’s first mass-market Ultium drivetrain (with apologies to the 9,000 lb. gorilla in the room, niche HummerEV) vehicle. With Cadillac no longer releasing ICE vehicles and going full EV in just eight short years, it isn’t a stretch to say that the brand is betting the company on the success of its first EV. So, how’d it do?

C3STROM ASTRO PRO review: This fast electric motorbike is pretending to be an electric bicycle

Some electric bicycles are for leisurely rides in the park. Some are for dropping off the kids at school or picking up groceries. Some are for budget-friendly alternative methods of transportation. The C3STROM ASTRO PRO electric bike is none of those things, and I struggle to even call it an electric “bike.” This is a powerful, full-featured electric motorbike wearing an e-bike’s clothes.

Listen up, electric bike companies. You need to give your e-bike batteries USB-C charging, stat!

If you’ve owned an electric bike, e-scooter, or other personal mobility device (and especially if you’ve owned more than one), you know they all have a charger that pretty much fits nothing else you own. I have several electric bikes, scooters, skateboards, and other e-rideables, and almost none of them can share chargers. But don’t fret! There’s already a convenient solution here, and it’s called USB-C. Electric bike battery USB-C charging needs to become a thing. And while, we’re at it, USB-C PD discharging, effectively turning the battery into a backup power supply for your electronics, could easily be added.

So listen up, electric bike companies. This one’s for you.
