Deal: $17 Smart Micro USB Charger Tells You How Fast Your Phone is Charging

If you are the type of person who has dozens of different phone and tablet chargers lying around your house after collecting devices over the years, you have probably run into situations where you thought your phone with this cable or that adapter wasn’t charging as quickly as it should. With the help of today’s DL Deal, the Smart Micro USB Charge Kit ($17), those combinations of adapter and cable that cause slow fill-ups could be a thing of the past.

The Smart Micro USB Charge Kit acts as a middle man between your phone and wall adapter to try and tell you if your phone is getting a full amount of juice as it charges. It ranks your charge like a cell phone signal, with a 5 bar rating. It’s as if it’s measuring signal strength to let you know if your phone is getting the best connection to your charger. The idea here is that the better the connection, the faster your phone charges.

It’s $17 for a limited time if you are interested.

Awesome Deal: Motorola Turbo Chargers for $9.99!

You know how much we love Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, right? Using a Turbo Charger on the Moto X (2nd gen), then Nexus 6 and Galaxy S6 and now LG G4, has been game-changing in our eyes. Quickly charging phones, especially ones that can’t seem to figure out how to last through an entire day, is the type of innovation that changes the way you use your phone – in a good way, of course.

Unfortunately, many of the Quick Charge 2.0 or “Turbo Chargers” made by manufacturers, like Motorola, are never cheap. They charge a premium for this little guys. The 3rd party, random brands, offer inexpensive chargers, but I’ve always felt that you never know exactly what you are getting yourself into with those and tend to stick with those made by the big dogs.

And that brings us to today’s deal on Groupon. The Motorola Turbo Charger can be had for $9.99! This tank typically runs $35, so we are talking a 70% discount on an official, brand new Motorola Turbo Charger. You know what to do.

IKEA’s Wireless Charging Furniture is Now Available

Included in the series of announcements surrounding the launch of the Galaxy S6 from Samsung, was word from IKEA that they had partnered with the Korean electronics giant to build out furniture that would include embedded wireless chargers. The thought was to help increase wireless charging adoption, but also to add functionality to your bedside table or lamp that would allow you to ditch the ugly chargers sold to you by Samsung and a variety of other accessory makers. The result, unveiled in April, was a series of lamps, tables, and stand-alone wireless chargers that added some style to something as geeky as wireless charging.  (more…)
