I'm an Amazon Prime subscriber, but I don't watch any of the company's shows. Heck, I forget the option exists. No matter, Amazon already has my money. The online retailer/TV production company is after other folks, and so it's dropping the price of Amazon Prime to $73 this weekend (from $99). Read More
Bluetooth speakers are cool. You can leave them at your desk, put them around the house, take them out to the garden, and still listen to music and audio while you're working or relaxing. This Braven 770 speaker is even cooler because it sports IPX5 water resistance so you shouldn't be afraid to bring it to the poolside, put it next to the kitchen sink, or listen to it while you shower. It also has 12 hours of battery life and comes in a spiffy black aluminum grade housing with nice control volumes on the side.
Braven is brave enough to say that the included 1400mAh battery can be used as a portable power bank at 1A output, but we all know that you're smart enough not to use that and you've instead grabbed a real external battery for your phone, but I guess you can still say that this is a feature.

External battery packs come in all shapes and sizes, but there's something about a solar panel that makes me want one more. I conjure up images of a battery that never dies and never needs to be charged, that can get me through a power outage after a summer hurricane with an overabundance of energy.
In reality, ZeroLemon's Solar Juice power banks might reach a full charge after several days of optimal sunlight. Fortunately, they're good external batteries in other ways. They're water, dust, and shock resistant. They come with two USB ports. They also offer a flashlight. Then there is the generous capacity. Read More
Any USB Type C cable will fit into a compatible port, but that doesn't mean they're made equal. Googler Benson Leung (and here you thought the headline was talking about Robert Bunsen) has held companies to task, writing extensive reviews that reveal which cables are legit and which are liable to damage your Type C devices. The iOrange-E cables are in the legit column. Read More
The Nexus 6 is available on Amazon for $249.99/$299.99 for the 32GB and 64GB models respectively. This isn't a new deal, or a better price than what we posted a couple of weeks ago at the end of December, but the phone has been out of stock for the past several days.
I'm sure most of you have the Nexus 6's specs memorized by now, so I won't go into detail telling you about the device. Summary– it's a great big phone for a pretty small price that will give you access to lighting quick Android updates.
Both dark blue and white models are in stock, and as this is the US model, it is compatible with every major carrier in the US, just pop in the SIM card of your choosing. Read More
So, you've got a massive library of media, and you absolutely must have as much of it with you as possible at all times? Sounds like you need a gigantic microSD card (and a phone that supports it, but that's a story for another day). But oh, the cost! Well, there's a sweet deal on a PNY card today at Amazon. 128GB for thirty-five smackers. Read More
It's been about a year since Amazon released the first Fire TV Stick (give or take a couple of months), which was probably the best streaming stick at the time—arguably better than both Chromecast and Roku Streaming Stick. Naturally, the company didn't want to wait too long before updating both the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, though I'm not sure that I'd call what the FTV Stick got an actual "upgrade." Really, it's the same stick as last year, but now there's an option to bundle it with the voice remote for just $10 more than the normal price of $40 (making it $50). Read More
A wise man once said, "If an empty wall outlet thy home doth possess, thou should fill it with a charger for thy personal electronics with great haste." I think it was Shakespeare, but I'm not entirely sure, so don't quote me on that.
Well, regardless of who said it, the sentiment is true for many of us gadget lovers. I really don't think it's possible to have too many chargers. Today you can pick up a great one for just a few bucks. Aukey has their Quick Charge 2.0 single port wall charger on sale for just $6.50 after applying coupon code V4R8BK3J at checkout to knock off a substantial $8.50. Read More
Phones are increasingly shipping without microSD card expansion slots, but you can still stick it to the man by getting cheap expandable memory for plenty of devices.

If you drive a tiny car like I do, you know the struggle of a long car ride, two passengers, two phones, and only one power port. If you'd like to alleviate that frustration, head on over to Amazon. Today you can grab a Tronsmart car charger that has two ports for just $7.99 with a coupon. The charger is compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, and on both ports to boot. If that's not enough to convince you, they're throwing in two MicroUSB cables for free.
To take advantage of that low price, add the Tronsmart charger to your cart, then check out and apply the coupon code "DUALPORT" to bring the price down from $19.99 to $7.99. Read More
