Touch of Modern's site is a place where only the cool gadgets are allowed to hang out, and to do so they have to offer some sort of a discount. In the corner of the room there are currently three Braven speakers all vying for attention, and they're discounted by up to half.

At the high end, we have the Braven 710. This speaker is discounted from $169.99 down to $99.99 - $20 lower than Amazon's going price. At the opposite end, we see the Mira priced at $64.99, which also manages to undercut Amazon by $20. In between the two, there's the Braven 570, which sees the largest discount at $49.99, a 50 percent savings. Though as good as that last one sounds, it's barely $10 less than what Amazon wants.

Let's set aside the speakers and look at something hotter. Touch of Modern has a SunJack fold-out solar charger that can use the sun to either power devices directly or to fill up its own internal battery for later use. It has two 5V/2A USB ports for twice the utility, takes five hours to fully charge, and can hold up to 8000mAh of goodness. The site is advertising it at $30 off its regular price (which is what Amazon wants for it), bringing it down to $119.99.

Touch of Modern will only ship the Braven speakers to customers in the US, whereas the Sunjack solar charger is available to people in Canada as well. As for shipping, well, don't count on seeing either of these things soon. The speakers will take up to three weeks to arrive, while the charger may keep buyers waiting for a couple of months.

Note: If you want to knock another $10 off the first order, use this link (it's a referral link, but it's the only way we can share the $10 discount). It should show up in the cart at checkout.

    • mgamerz

      Do I need it? Not really... Do I want it? Definitely... Can I afford it? Maybe...

      • hyperbolic

        I was thinking the same way but then it hit me, you need it if you care about green energy.

        • mgamerz

          The site doesn't support PayPal or Google Wallet or Amazon Payments. Nope to this deal...

      Is that a solar panel in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

  • mgamerz

    Finally! I can play ingress without needing to lug a car battery around!

    The Touch of Modern site: what an annoying website - they force you to make an account or log in via facebook before showing you anything. And they're a vendor website? Really? So they sell you stuff, you know, for profit, but have an annoying log in popup that blocks all the stuff they want to sell you, until you hand over your facebook account info? Is this post a "native advertisement" for them?

  • David

    Yeah, What a bunch of greedy Goons - you have to give them your personal your information just for the "privilege" of seeing what they are trying to sell you! No thank You Touch-of-Modern.

  • Sorian

    You guys did a review of the 710 calling it lackluster on sound, Is that still a valid summary?

  • Matthew Fry

    That SunJack shines brighter than the rest. It really makes people's eyes light up. Uh... uh... It's really hot in the solar panel sphere?

    Sigh, TouchofModern. I ordered the solar charger a week ago with a good bit of excitement, expected delivery is 6-8 weeks. They immediately charged my credit card, and now tell me it may take a 10 days to 2 weeks to credit me back. They're using us for cash flow.

    I think most have seen through this site and now, yet another mark against AndroidPolice for their poor homework. I've already stopped going to your site because of 32 unique tracking mechanisms, I deviated because of this headline. No more.
