Quick Charge 2.0! Fast Charging! Turbo Charging! I can imagine you want me to shut up about it at this point. Even I’m getting sick of talking about. OK, not really, but before we start to calm down with our excitement over charging phones faster than ever, we wanted to point out Aukey’s new 10,000mAh battery pack that supports all of that fastness. Yes, you really can get the same burst of Quick Charge 2.0 speed through a portable battery pack. (more…)
The deal of the day goes out to the new listing over at eBay which has the Sony Smartwatch 3 at just $169.99. That’s an $80 discount over the Android Wear-powered device’s usual price, plus free shipping is included.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 sports a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.6-inch LCD display (320×320), 420mAh battery, is IP68 water and dust resistant, and GPS. Thanks to that GPS, the Smartwatch 3 is still one of the only Android Wear devices that can be taken offline (disconnected from your phone) and still track usage. For workout fanatics who need to track long runs but may not want carry along a phone, this is probably the best option.
The deal is in limited quantities, so don’t let it sit for long.
If I asked you to name as many fitness trackers as you could, I would imagine the list would have at least a dozen names on it. If I asked you to name fitness trackers that were under $50, that list will likely be much shorter. You see, fitness trackers are all the rage these days, but that also means that companies are still charging a premium for them. For example, the current Fitbit line starts at around $100. That might be too expensive for someone looking to test the waters of fitness tracking for the first time.
For those who want something inexpensive, consider the Movo Wave, which is available in the DL Deals store for just $24.99. This is not going to be the ultimate fitness tracker. Let’s be honest. But, it will track your steps, distance, and calories burned when exercising. It has a companion app that is free, plus there is a web interface for viewing progress from your computer. It’s water resistant. You can swap out colors to personalize it a bit. And finally, it should last you at least a couple of weeks on a single charge.
If you are looking for a start in fitness tracking, but don’t want to spend a ton of cash, this might be a solid option.
Motorola’s latest $140-off promo for the Moto X has come to a close, but as has been the case lately, they went ahead and replaced it with another price slashing. Their P4000 Power Pack is now $19.99, down from $79.99.
The “4000” in the name is in reference to the 4,000mAh battery tucked inside, which should be good for a charge and a half depending on the phone. This Power Pack is slim, has an included micro USB cable tucked into its body, and is capable of charging two devices at a time.
$20 for some juice on the go isn’t a bad deal at all.
For just $26, your life can include a 10,000mAh battery pack that can charge even when on the go, thanks to a solar panel. This isn’t an April Fools’ joke either. ZeroLemon’s SolarJuice 10,000mAh battery pack is 47% off in the DL Deals store. With a 4.5 star rating on Amazon, and a regular price tag that hovers around $50, this is a pretty damn good deal.
The ZeroLemon SolarJuice allows you to simultaneously charge up to 3 devices at a time, is rain and shock proof, shouldn’t explode (seriously, that’s in the description), includes a grade-A battery cell, and even has a 2A port for faster charging of mobile devices. It should also last you for up to 1,000 cycles and has an included flashlight for those emergency moments where you need some glow.
The deal is live for a couple of days, so be sure to get in on it.
Bluetooth ear buds are one of those consumer electronics that don’t typically carry reasonable prices, especially when you start talking about the best of the best. The good ones are well over $100 and the cheap ones lack features. But these are still an accessory we tend to recommend for those who workout or for those who hate the idea of wires getting in the way of activities on a regular basis.
For those interested, the DL Deals shop currently has a pair of Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds for just $24.99. The regular price typically hovers around $100, so you are looking at a sizable discount here. Are these the best Bluetooth ear buds on the market? No. Are they affordable and fully featured? Yep. These would be a great first venture in the world of active Bluetooth headphones.
The Cloud Buds feature a lightweight, wireless construction, noise-canceling outer shell, built-in mic and remote, and multiple sizes of gel ear buds to ensure proper fit.
The $25 will go up after Wednesday, so be sure to get in on this today.
Amazon announced this morning that a major update will be rolling out to the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick over the coming weeks. The update introduces expandable USB storage to the Fire TV, allows you to connect either device to hotel or dorm room WiFi, adds Bluetooth wireless headphone support, lets you search Prime playlists, and more.
The full changelog can be found below for the update, which is free, of course. (more…)
HTC’s RE camera, a GoPro-like action cam that is the first of many of HTC’s new product lines, is on-sale at Best Buy in a daily deal for just $99. The RE normally carries a $199 price, so we are talking about a 50% discount for today only.
As a recap, the RE is HTC’s action camera that shoots 1080p video, uses a 146-degree wide-angle lens, 16MP Sony sensor for stills with digital image stabilization, and is waterproof. It might be shaped like a periscope, but the design allows you to hold it comfortably while snapping photos at will. It doesn’t have many buttons or a viewfinder, so you have to use an Android companion app to see the photos and videos you are capturing. That’s OK, though, because it allows for quick sharing.
I don’t think anyone would consider the RE to be an award-winning product, but I can tell you that in my time with it, it has become a great party, child-chasing, and travel camera for all of those spur of the moment shots. It’s probably worth about $100.
The deal includes white, blue, and orange models.
