HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 gives One smartphones a quick boost

Time and time again, we've looked to the battery as the bottleneck for smartphone performance and longevity. No longer encumbered by CPU or memory, at least for some models, it is the battery's usually short life that has now become the primary concern for smartphone users. But in cases where you don't have a huge battery or can't swap ones in a pinch, your last resort will be an external battery or a wall charger.

HTC One M8 EYE shows up in HTC’s Chinese eshop page

HTC has just recently regaled the tech world with its new hobby, digital imaging and photography.
