Developments in the Mobile Industry

Android 13 Coming Soon

Google released the final Beta of Android 13 in July and promises a final release is coming in a few weeks. While most mobile devices won’t be receiving Android 13 on Day One, we, at LAVA, will endeavour to ensure SimulCharge-compatible devices continue to work efficiently once they do. We also offer a free device-testing program. If you loan us your Android tablet or smartphone, we will test it for compatibility with our adapters.
