Motorola just announced a limited-time deal on the Moto X (2nd gen) that gets you the phone for $299 (after $50 rebate), but also lets you try it for up to 30 days “risk free.” They are attaching this deal to the idea of people buying phones without a contract, so if you buy any of their models without signing a contract through a carrier, you get it for as little as $299.

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.
You know how much we love Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, right? Using a Turbo Charger on the Moto X (2nd gen), then Nexus 6 and Galaxy S6 and now LG G4, has been game-changing in our eyes. Quickly charging phones, especially ones that can’t seem to figure out how to last through an entire day, is the type of innovation that changes the way you use your phone – in a good way, of course.
Unfortunately, many of the Quick Charge 2.0 or “Turbo Chargers” made by manufacturers, like Motorola, are never cheap. They charge a premium for this little guys. The 3rd party, random brands, offer inexpensive chargers, but I’ve always felt that you never know exactly what you are getting yourself into with those and tend to stick with those made by the big dogs.
And that brings us to today’s deal on Groupon. The Motorola Turbo Charger can be had for $9.99! This tank typically runs $35, so we are talking a 70% discount on an official, brand new Motorola Turbo Charger. You know what to do.
Looking for a fresh deal on a 128GB microSD card for your non-Galaxy S6? Amazon recently dropped the price of the Lexar 128GB UHS-1/U3 card that is coupled with a USB 3.0 card reader. The combo runs just $72.99, which is a steal. Both Samsung and SanDisk’s 128GB cards cost more than $73, and neither comes with a USB 2.0 reader.
If you don’t want the full 128GB card, they also have a 64GB combo that is only $42.99.
Prime shipping is included.
As a friendly reminder, you now have one day left to enter the Choose Your Own Premium Android giveaway on the DL Deals Store.

Each device features pinnacle specifications for a smartphone, and would easily make any recipient quite happy. (more…)
The LG G Watch may be one of the original Android Wear devices, meaning it’s old, plain looking, and probably no where near your best option for a smartwatch, but at $50, you might want to think about it. Since smartwatches are one of those items that no one has been able to convince us is a necessity in life, these are the times that actually make sense for purchasing one. What better way to test out a new product that you may or may not need than when it has been discounted to pennies?
Over at eBay, a listing for a “manufacturer refurbished” G Watch is live, but maybe not for long. At $49.99, with free shipping, this little guy will likely sell out in a hurry. If interested, hit that link below.
