Deal: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S5 in Black, White, or Gold for $429

Even though it has been available for months, longer than most 2014 flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a force to be reckoned with. With its industry-leading Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and great camera, the Galaxy S5 still stands up nicely to other top-tier devices introduced over the last couple of months. If you haven’t been moved by the new Moto X or LG G3, and the Galaxy S5 has remained on your radar, today may be the day to consider pulling the trigger on one.

A current eBay daily deal has the AT&T version (SM-G900A) in black, white, or gold with 16GB of storage for just $429.99. That’s off-contract of course. The device’s description says that it is unlocked and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. It does appear to be missing one of T-Mobile’s GSM bands, though, so your best bet would be to attach it to AT&T to get full LTE and GSM connectivity.  (more…)

Deal: Lithium Card is a Wallet-Sized Power Bank for $39

Power banks or battery packs are something that we think most people should own. You don’t need to own a big 15,000mAh pack, by any means, but you never know when you might need some extra juice to power your phone in a pinch.

A power bank like the Lithium Card, which is currently discounted on our DL Deals site and was an Indiegogo sensation, is a great option for those without a big budget or a lot of room. The Lithium Card is a wallet-sized (5 credit cards thick) battery pack that holds 1,200mAh of power and can charge up to 1% of battery per minute. That may not be enough to get you a full battery refill, but some times you only need just enough to get you through the rest of a day.

To see reviews, comments, and specs for the Lithium Card, hit up the deal link below.

Today’s deal includes the 32GB variant for $159.99, which is more than $100 off the original retail price. The device is “manufacture refurbished,” but you know what that means by now – the manufacturer has had a chance to work out defects or kinks.

Not much else to say with this one; you have seen this deal countless times. Your time is running out, though, as Google is close to giving us the new HTC Nexus 9.

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.
