Huawei's latest attempt to break into the US market comes by way of the Honor smartphone brand, specifically the Honor 5X. David thought it was pretty good for $200, and now you're mere days away from coming to your own conclusion. The Honor 5X goes on sale January 31st (Sunday) for $200. Read More
Craving some juice? How about some lemon juice? Well, I've got ZeroLemons to satiate you and your phone. I know that sounds like a bad deal, but ZeroLemon actually makes really good products that help you avoid any situation in which your phone could turn into a useless juiceless lemon. And today's deals get you some of the best value for your bucks from the company's portfolio.
First up is the 10,000mAh solar battery charger that we've seen sit at $26 at its lowest. It has 2A and 1A output ports so you can charge one phone or accessory faster than another, although this isn't Quick Charge. Read More
You probably haven't owned that USB Type C cable long enough for it to fall apart yet, but that doesn't mean there's no reason not to stock up on a few more. Right now you can grab a couple on Amazon from Cambond for a solid price. These are C-to-A cables, the kind you need to plug in a USB Type C device with something still sporting an older USB port.

Let's start this off by taking inventory. How many USB Type C cables do you have? By now you may have stocked up on plenty of C-to-A cords. You may own a C-to-C cable or two. Some of you Nexus 6P and MacBook Air owning types may be so future forward that you're ready to switch entirely to the latter type.
Thing is, you have a house full of old cell phone chargers lying around that work with traditional USB cables (unless you snagged our last deal). On Amazon you can get one that works with USB Type C and comes with a cable for $25.99. Read More
Smartphone batteries are getting bigger, but you still need to juice them up from time to time. The change to USB Type-C means you suddenly have many fewer compatible cables, but Choetech is selling some for cheap, and yes, they're Benson-approved. There's also a USB solar panel on sale, because why not? Read More
Readers who follow our deal alerts already know that we have a thing for iOrange-E's braided USB Type C cables. We've highlighted them a few times now and have pointed out how Googler Benson Leung says they won't inadvertently damage your USB Type C devices. Thing is, we've only shared USB C to A cables in the past, as in cords with USB Type C on one end and a regular-sized, fat USB plug on the other. Read More
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
