A wireless communication apparatus supports at least a second wireless communication scheme between a first wireless communication scheme and the second wireless communication scheme. The first wireless communication scheme requires that a wireless medium is determined to be busy when a reception level is equal to or greater than a minimum reception sensitivity level of a physical scheme. The apparatus includes a first processing unit and a second processing unit. The first processing unit is configured to set a value lower than a maximum transmission power of the first wireless communication scheme, for a maximum transmission power of the second wireless communication scheme and set a value greater than the minimum reception sensitivity level of the physical scheme, for a carrier sense level, when the second wireless communication scheme is used. The second processing unit is configured to carry out carrier sense using the carrier sense level.

According to one embodiment, an electronic device includes a terminal, a display and a controller. The terminal is capable of charging a battery included in a connected device independently from reception of data stored in the connected device. The display is configured to display video and a setting screen for inputting an input of an instruction regarding whether the connected device connected to the terminal should be operated by a) a first operation mode or b) a second operation mode. The controller is configured to control the display to a) preclude display, during charging the connected device, an output in which video of content stored in the connected device is reproduced in response to the first operation mode being selected on the setting screen, and b) display the output in which the video is reproduced in response to the second operation mode being selected on the setting screen.

A storage device of an embodiment includes a voltage measurement unit that measures a voltage of power supplied from a host, a volatile memory, a non-volatile memory including a saving area and a normal area, a data compression and decompression unit, and a controller. The controller includes a power-supply voltage determining unit which compares the voltage measured by the voltage measurement unit to a predetermined threshold value, a data saving unit which writes compression user data obtained by compressing user data by the data compression and decompression unit in the saving area when the voltage is less than the predetermined threshold value and the user data is included in the volatile memory, and a data rewriting unit which writes the compression user data that is decompressed in the normal area when the compression user data is included in the saving area at the time of supplying the power.
