Re: DC to DC Converter Quality - Does it Matter?

I would never use anything but a quality, name-brand adapter to charge my phone, that's for sure. But for a cheap-ish dashcam, I don't care so much lol.

Re: DC to DC Converter Quality - Does it Matter?

Thanks! Yeah it's a little dashcam that works fine on a 1A port so the "3A" one should be fine.

Re: Anyone have ANY information on this company?

Fastest Secure Wipe?

I'm planning on selling about half a dozen extra USB 3.0 hard drives on Craigslist. If I do a non-quick format in Windows 10 is that good enough? Or some other solution?

Try it :) https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/
