Deal: Limefuel Lite 15,000mAh Dual USB Power Pack for $34.99

Over in our newly unveiled Droid Life Deals section, we wanted to point out a current deal for the Limefuel Lite 15,000mAh battery pack, which can be had for just $34.99 (36% off). The deal is only good through the weekend, ending on Monday, September 15.

The Limefuel Lite 15,000mAh battery pack that can charge your tablets a couple of times on a single charge, or your phones even more. For example, the LG G3 sports a 3,000mAh battery, which means the Limefuel Lite could give you close to five full charges while on the go. The pack also features s digital display to show you exactly how much juice is left, along with two USB ports, so that you can charge two devices simultaneously.

I own a handful of portable battery packs like this for traveling or on days when I may be out of the house for an extended period of time. Even though today’s devices all carry serious batteries, you just never know when you might need some extra juice.

$1,000 in Google Play Gift Cards Up for Grabs

This morning, we announced the brand new Deals section of DL, a spot where you can find discounts on bundles of apps, accessories, and other tech-related products. If you haven’t already, be sure to cruise over there and browse around to see if anything fits your current needs. Might I suggest the Android section, where you will find a name-your-price bundle of games and a discounted shower speaker (who doesn’t need a shower speaker?).

If none of that stands out, then I wanted to at least point out that you will find a Google Play gift card giveaway with $1,000 in prizes. The grand prize will receive $150 in gift cards, the runner-up gets $100, and 15 others will see $50 cards.

Details of the contest can be found below.  (more…)

Introducing the Droid Life Deals Store! Save 10% With This Launch Code!

This morning, we have a new addition to announce to the site that we think you will find great value in over the coming months and years – it’s a new Droid Life Deals section that will constantly evolve and grow, as our never ending need for discounted things increases. For years, we have had an accessory store attached to the site, but as we have come to realize that many of you care more about bundled software deals and flash sales on accessories, a Deals section seemed like it would be a great add-on to the site.

So, Droid Life Deals was born!  (more…)

Deal: 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) Plus Free Leather Case on Sale for $129 Today Through eBay

Note:  This deal was posted back in mid August, but it has returned at the same price and with the same leather case. $129 isn’t a bad deal.

We don’t know if Google will ever release another Nexus 7 tablet. In fact, the only rumors of a new Nexus tablet center around an HTC-made device with a metal body and an 8.9-inch display. So if you plan to buy a Nexus 7, like last year’s model, you are quickly running out of time. Google has sold out of almost all versions of the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play without re-stocking them for weeks. The only two available are the 32GB LTE model in black or the 16GB WiFi-only version, both of which go in and out of stock on the daily.

If the 16GB WiFi-only version is of interest, hit up eBay’s daily deal today. You can grab a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for $129, but that also includes a free leather case and free standard shipping. The device retailed brand new for $229. Not a bad deal.

LG G Watch Drops to $179 Through Google Play on Apple Watch Day

The LG G Watch dropped to $179 through Google Play today in both black and white, just as Apple was showing off their new Apple Watch. Nice timing.

If you want a current watch platform that was built as a companion to your phone, not a device arriving in 2015 that is bloated with a smartphone-like experience, then by all means, check out the G Watch.

The $50 discount runs through September 23.

Amazon Fire Phone Drops to 99 Cents After Just Over a Month

Amazon’s Fire Phone went on sale July 25 for $199 on-contract or $649 at full retail. The device hasn’t even been available for a full two months yet the company announced today that it has discounted the 32GB model to $0.99 on-contract and $449 at full retail.

Reports of the device being a flop circulated almost immediately after it became available, something that didn’t surprise us at all. The device is filled with decent-but-not-high-end specs in many areas and is basically a hand-held Amazon store with a few gimmicky features. In fact, the best part of the Fire Phone is arguably the free year of Prime you get when purchasing one.  (more…)
