Summer is the perfect time to try your luck at carp fishing. Carp are widely recognized as an invasive species known to cause problems in the waterways they call home.

Passport PD: The World’s First GaN Technology-Based Travel Adapter

Passport PD is the world’s first GaN technology-based travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse. Why is this important? If you break the single-use fuse in your typical travel adapter, you have only a few options — buy a new fuse, change the fuse yourself or buy a new travel adapter altogether.
