Battery packs are awesome and an accessory that I always tell people to consider buying when they are on sale. You can keep them in the bottom of a bag, in the glove box of your car, or on your coffee table for those times on the couch where you need extra battery juice but don’t have an outlet near by. You just never know when you might be away from an outlet for an extended period of time with a quickly dying battery that needs to last another couple of hours.
The BookMark Battery is the latest to go on sale in our Deals store. It’s an incredibly thin (4.7mm) 2,500mAh battery pack that will give most phones an entire charge before it needs replenishing. It has a touch indicator to show how much power it has left, comes in either black or white, and was designed to fit perfectly into a pocket, even a pant pocket. It inputs at 5v-1000mA, outputs at 5v-500mA, and has a cycle life of 500 charges.
At $34.99 (regularly $60), this is a solid deal for those who need some backup power.
While discounted prices are always nice, nothing beats absolutely free, am I right? For a limited time, we have a few goodies marked as free in the DL Deals Store, including an entrepreneur bundle, learning HTML bundle, a Tower defense game, and a SkillFeed tutorial bundle. All for free. (more…)

A soon-ending deal taking place in the Deals Store can land you a set of Active Wrap headphones for just $24, plus free shipping. The Active Wrap headset is Bluetooth powered, which makes pairing with an Android device incredibly easy.

The unit also features a built-in microphone, built-in noise canceling technology, and much more. (more…)
People buy phone cases for lots of different reasons, most commonly to restyle a handset’s exterior and to protect (or at least attempt to protect) it from nicks and scratches. Whatever the objective, covers unfortunately do not come cheap; you can typically count on shelling out $25 and up for reputable brands. That’s why TYLT’s October promotion, which runs through the 30th, seems like such a steal.
TYLT’s cases usually retail between $35 and $50 , but are on sale for just $10 through the end of the month. Plus, shipping is free to customers within the continental United States. (more…)
Update: We wanted to point out that the contest now includes the newly announced Nexus 6.
Over at the DL Deals site, you will find a contest running that (in about 2 months) will reward one of you with a free Android phone of choice. It’s as simple as ever to enter – create an account there and click the “Enter” button. That gives you a single entry, but you can grab another six entries if you share the contest through social sites. (more…)
