You probably own a half-dozen portable power packs by now, because well, we talk about them a lot. There are certain accessories that are worth investing in that you may not need every day, but certainly come in handy in a pinch. Power and battery packs fall into that category, so we tend to share deals on them whenever we see one.
Today, over at Amazon, if you buy Anker’s 60W 6-port USB charger for $35.99, Anker will throw in an Astro E1 5,200mAh battery pack for free ($19.99 value). So not only do you get a powerful USB charger that can charge all of your devices on at once, you get a portable battery pack with enough juice to give most phones almost two full charges.
To get the deal, hit up both links below, add both items to your cart, and then plug-in “FE1BLACK” or “FE1WHITE” depending on which portable pack you go with, white or black.

Most consider the Nexus 6 to be a monster-sized version of Motorola’s Moto X (2nd gen). The two devices certainly look very similar with their dimples, metal frames, and curved bodies, it’s just that the Nexus 6 is 13x the size of the new Moto X (yes, we’re exaggerating a tad). But outside of the size, there is also one other unfortunate difference – the Nexus 6 is actually Google’s phone. In other words, it doesn’t have the customizable options that Motorola’s flagship has through Moto Maker. That means no leather or wood or custom colorways or branding. You can either go Midnight Blue or Cloud White (assuming you can find either in stock anywhere).
What if you want a wood or leather Nexus 6, though? Slickwraps may have an option that will get you close to a Moto Maker-made Nexus 6. (more…)
Immediately after we broke news of DODOcase leather watch bands being available for the Moto 360 last week, we purchased a handful. With their premium price tag ($60), we wanted to get them in house as fast as possible to share thoughts on in case some of you were thinking about picking them up, but were hesitant to spend that kind of cash. Thanks to semi-quick shipping, ours have arrived! (more…)
Have you ever wanted to mount your phone or tablet to the dash of your car on the fly, without one of those giant suction cup arm holders? Or maybe you just want to be able to stick your phone quickly to a board, wall, microwave, cabinet or other surface to keep your hands free for a minute? One option to get you there is the Neutron S. Originally funded in minutes through Kickstarter, the Neutron S is a magnetically shielded mount that can be “installed anywhere” and is now available in the DL Deals shop for $25 ($5 off).
The Neutron S “uses magnetic architecture to generate herculean grip while taking up minimal space,” but also has NFC built-in so that you can configure it to accomplish tasks as you mount a device (think turning on Bluetooth as you mount it in your car to connect to your stereo). The Neutron S attaches to objects using 3M VHB tape that is included with purchase.

Priced at $59.99, there are four different color options to choose from. Right now, there is Red, Tan, Blue, and Green. (more…)
Update: This deal is done, but if you still need a cheap battery pack, you can still find the Motorola Power Pack 3000 for a ridiculously low $8.99 price (regularly $50) at eBay. If you want two, you can grab a 2-pack for $14.99.
Our best deal of the last quarter is about to come to an end, sadly. The Limefuel LP200X 20,000mAh battery pack will leave the Deals shop in a few hours (midnight Pacific), taking its minimal $35 price tag with it. Regularly priced at $85 through places like Amazon, you are saving 58% on one of the best rated battery packs out there.
As a recap, the Limefuel LP200X packs in 20,000mAh of juice (good enough for a handful of full phone charges), has a digital display, built-in flashlight, two USB ports for multi-device charging, Grade A battery cells, and a compact design.
Again, only a couple of hours left on this deal.
Chromecast was already a steal at $35 – you would be hard pressed to find a cheaper, more simple device to beam audio and video from your smartphone, tablet, and computer to your TV – but Best Buy’s promotion makes it a no-brainer. Until the end of January, purchasing the dongle from the electronics retailer will net you $20 worth of Google Play credit. (more…)
Power packs. After spending another week at CES, I once again am so thankful for having them with me. There are times that you just can’t get to an outlet to get some juice in your back-up phone that’s about to die before 8PM. Some times, you need some help that doesn’t involve a socket in a wall.
If you have yet to buy yourself a power pack or battery pack of any kind, now would be a great time to consider it. Through an eBay daily deal, you can grab one of Motorola’s Power Pack 3000 (which means it has a 3,000mAh capacity) for just $8.99. Regularly, these packs run $49.99. I don’t think I need to do the math there for you to realize the substantial discount.
And if one of them isn’t enough, you can opt for a 2-pack of the Power Pack 3000 for just $14.99. So instead of paying $100 (plus shipping) from Motorola, you can have two of their high capacity battery packs for $15, with free shipping.
UPDATE: Amazon has the same deal going, but with Prime shipping for Prime members. Amazon Link.
