DEAL: Anker Dual-Port Quick Charge 2.0 Car Charger is Just $13.99

Today’s best deal is over at Amazon where you can pick-up an Anker Quick Charge 2.0 dual-port charger for just $13.99. This charge is a no-brainer because unlike most car chargers, this offers QC 2.0 charging out of both ports. We often see QC 2.0 or QC 3.0 chargers with multiple ports, except they often only allow for one quick charge port. Not this guy.

The deal includes Prime shipping, for those with Amazon Prime accounts.

Besides the easily apparent size difference, and with Google Assistant not yet ready for use, it’s almost an identical experience if I’m being completely honest.  (more…)

Two weeks ago, Verizon pushed a software update to remaining Galaxy Note 7 devices on its network that had not yet been returned after Samsung recalled the device.
