A good car charger is something everyone should have. The problem is, it’s tough to figure out which ones are actually good and which ones are cheap garbage. The Mpow 3-port intelligent car charger that is in its final days on the DL Deals store should be one to consider. You can pick up this compact charger for just $13.99 for the next 5 days.
As a recap, the Mpow 3-port charger supports both 12V and 18V input, identifies which types of devices you connect to power them correctly, and will shut down charges in order to prevent damage to your battery or device. It also has 3 ports, of course, so you can charge up to two tablets and a phone at a time.
The Mpow 3-port intelligent charger has a close-to-5-star rating over at Amazon. (more…)
Battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge isn’t something you will be bragging about any time soon. It’s borderline bad, actually. But these phones happen to have the best displays and cameras in any mobile phone, along with a hell of a premium build, so it’s hard to argue against anyone interested in buying one. With that said, we know that battery life is a top 3 category for some, especially those who aren’t near a charger all day long for quick re-fills.
For those people, we give you the ZeroLemon 3500mAh Slim battery case at just $28.99. With this case, you not only get quite a bit of protection, but you also get an extra 3500mAh of juice that can be used once your initial charge runs out. The case will add some thickness, but since the phone is quite small, it shouldn’t be unwieldy.
Companies like Mophie have made these types of cases famous, but they also charge a $100 premium for most. At $28.99, this is a pretty good deal.

Would you pull the trigger on your first Android Wear smartwatch if it was the Moto 360 and you only had to pay $150? That’s the scenario in front of you today, thanks to a deal from Woot. The Moto 360, which is probably still the best looking smartwatch to date (and just received Android 5.1), can be had for $150 with a leather band or $180 with a metal band.
At retail, the Moto 360 with a leather band normally runs $250; with a metal band, you are looking at $300. Not a bad deal.
The deal includes a 1-year warranty from Motorola.

Back in March, days after Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 without an expandable storage slot, SanDisk unveiled its new 200GB microSD card. They told us at the time to expect the “world’s highest capacity” card at some point in Q2 of this year. Well, here we are in Q2 and the card is available at retailers like Amazon.
Of course, this much storage will cost you. The price was supposed to start around $399, but Amazon has the little guy for $240. I don’t know that I would call that a “deal,” though that’s much easier to swallow than the original price quote.
With a card like this, you could technically hold up to 20 hours of full HD video or transfer 1,200 photos in a minute with theoretic speeds of 90MB/s.

The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) announced this morning that a new Qi wireless power standard specification “paves the way for fast charging of mobile phones.” In other words, wireless charging will soon have fast charging capabilities, similar to what is found in devices currently equipped with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. I’ll say that again – wireless charging is about to be fast, just like turbo or fast charging is. (more…)
Amazon’s personal assistant/kitchen buddy/media streamer/news updater/joke teller/home controller that is manipulated by voice, the Amazon Echo, is now available for all to purchase at the price of $179. The cylindrical speaker will ship on July 14.
Not familiar with Echo? Here’s the story. Echo was introduced in November to Prime members in very limited supply at $99 as a voice-activated assistant that includes a speaker, allowing it to double as a media player in any room. You had to sign-up to show interest in Echo, but Amazon didn’t exactly let you order it right away. At first, they only let you request an invite to purchase and would notify you if selected. Soon after that, they let almost any Prime member order one, with shipping estimates months and months out. For example, Tim and I ordered Echo some time in early January, but neither of us actually received units until last month. (more…)

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.
