Gearheads get their spudgers into an iPhone 11 Pro Max: Bi-lateral charging, anyone?


Ericsson GH172

As close to indestructible as any piece of electronics I've ever owned. Mine survived :

- Being dropped in a swimming pool.

- Being dropped off of a cherry picker three stories up (it did land on grass)

- Numerous drops, bumps, bangs and general abuse

- Sliding off of a van roof onto the road

- Being dunked in a pint of beer when it rang during my consumption of Liquid Amnesia on a Friday night

It finally died of a simple short circuit, only to be replaced by an almost as tough GH197 - much to my delight I could even reuse the old battery as a spare....

God knows what my Note 10+ would make of such treatment!
