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.

Qualcomm is currently hosting their Uplinq conference down in San Francisco, where the keynote is happening live as I type this.

Wireless congestion is a problem in cities – concrete and steel, unforgiving topography, and a countless number of competing access points congeal to absolutely decimate your data rate.

According to a report out of CNET, Motorola and Verizon will introduce the DROID TURBO in October. The report also mentions that Motorola and Verizon have decided to release just one new DROID model, rather than the three that we have seen each of the last two years.
What do we know about the DROID TURBO? Well, its codename is “QUARK,” as confirmed to us by both a source and the FCC. The device will likely sport a large DROID MAXX-like battery (model EQ40) and wireless charging. We have confirmed that it will be able to take advantage of Motorola’s Turbo Charger, which can give the new Moto X up to 8 hours of juice in just 15 minutes. The new DROID will be slightly larger than the new Moto X, but that could be because it doesn’t have on-screen navigation buttons. (more…)
