Deal: Samsung Fast Charging Car Chargers just $12.99

Most of you probably have a Turbo Charger or two laying around your house, thanks to a handful of decent deals on them over the past year. But do any of you have a fast charger for your car? If not, you can pick-up a brand new, Samsung Fast Charging Car Charger for just $12.99 over at Groupon (USB cable included).

Groupon is claiming that you are receiving some massive 68% discount, but that’s kind of a lie. These chargers can be had at Amazon from around $15 with a USB cable. Still, saving a couple of bucks on an already-cheap fast charger for your car isn’t something to complain about.

Like with the fast wall chargers, you can grab up to 50% charge in just 30 minutes time.

DL Show Episode 90 Happened This Week, Your Week Isn’t Complete Without It

Earlier in the week, Tim, Ron and I all sat down for what turned into episode 90 of the Droid Life Show. It was as good of a time as ever, with topics ranging from all of our thoughts on the Galaxy Note 5 and its S Pen controversy, to why HTC is making an iPhone 6 clone.

We also ran through topics like the new Gear S2, Moto 360 (2nd gen) that has been seen, our images of the DROID MAXX 2, the big Huawei Nexus leak, and why everyone is so confusingly excited about this Blackberry slider phone that runs Android.

Vanishing Moto 360 Inventory Can Mean Only One Thing

We must be getting real close to the next Moto 360 from Motorola, as evidenced by the abrupt disappearance of last year’s model on Motorola’s website. The device has been removed from Moto Maker, and it doesn’t appear to be buyable anywhere through Motorola’s website.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Motorola intends to announce the next Moto 360 at this year’s IFA, alongside other manufacturers in Berlin. Not only that, but the smartwatch has been pictured on wrists in the city of Chicago, as well as overseas, lending credit to the belief that we should see the updated wearable announced next week.  (more…)
