Around these parts, we like our gadgets. Unfortunately, accumulating a couple of them leaves us regularly in need of juice. Power outlets become scarce after stepping outside the house, which is why it's worth picking up an external battery pack or two. Currently you can get an Anker Astro E5 15,000mAh battery pack for $49.99 from Amazon, but with a coupon code, you can bring that down to $35.99.
This external battery comes with two USB ports (5V/2A and 5V/1A), so you can charge two devices at once. Read More
The Moto X is one of the best phones you can get right now. What makes it even better is that it's pretty affordable as it stands – a customized 16GB model is $400. 32GB is $450. Damn good pricing. But until the end of today (at midnight), you can get damn gooder pricing. That's right. Gooder.
With the coupon code AFFMTX, Moto is knocking fifty bones off of the 16GB model and seventy-five off of the 32GB model, making them $350 and $375 respectively. Read More
Update: The coupon code has already expired. Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles.
Update 1/27/14 12:17pm PT: New code Y8WGAYUM (via SD) should work today for the same $4 off.
Another device, another charger. That's the way the story goes. I personally leave a USB charger hanging from at least one outlet near every resting place in my apartment, but if you happen to need all of your devices in roughly the same place, my system won't exactly meet your needs. Read More
Motorola seems to have cracked the code to make people really, really excited about the Moto X: give them a huge freakin' discount. After driving the Internet wild and crashing their own site with a Cyber Monday deal on the Moto X for $349.99, the deal has returned via a "12 Days Of Christmas" deal from The Today Show. You can get a $150 discount on any contract-free Moto X from Moto Maker (except the bamboo back version), or take a cool 50% off the on-contract price. Read More
Thanksgiving may be behind us, but the holidays aren't over yet. Christmas is fast approaching, and that means many people will be stuck traveling on long, cross-country flights to visit extended family members and wrestling with them over precious power outlets upon arrival. If you want to keep your favorite Android device running regardless of the circumstances, Amazon has an affordable deal that might just pique your interest. You can currently pick up the RAVPower 14,000mAh external battery pack, which has multiple USB ports for charging two devices at once, for just $34.50. Read More
The retail slugfest that is Black Friday is almost upon us, and several stores are eager to get in a few punches before the bell. That includes Staples, which is reviving its well-received $50 off tablets coupon from earlier this year. The coupon is valid online, in stores, or over the phone (people still shop over the phone?) but it will expire after today, November 27th.
Of course there are a few stipulations. Read More
Frequent fliers breathed a sigh of relief when the FAA ruled that most electronics could be used from takeoff to landing, and Amazon was a big part of that decision. To celebrate they're having a one day sale on two 7-inch Kindle models, the new Kindle Fire HDX and the year-old Fire HD. Enter the code "ThnksFAA" (note spelling) at checkout and you can take 15% off the regular price. Read More
Samsung took its time getting a Qi charger out the door, but they were finally available for purchase a few weeks ago. At $49.99 it was a reasonably good deal as far as wireless chargers go, but it didn't come with a wall charger to power the device. Now the Samsung Wireless Charging Pad includes the recommended 2A charger for $10 more, but that's not the best deal as it turns out. Read More
We must be achingly close to a new 7-inch slate from Google with all the Nexus 7 sales going on. This time the already low price over at Staples is getting even lower with the application of a $30 coupon code. This is a solid deal, even for last year's model.
The summer is here, and that means plenty of uses for a massive external battery pack. Whether the entire family decides to stay out at the beach for a few hours longer than your over-powered smartphone can last or a particularly nasty hurricane decides to knock out power for a few days, you could use some extra juice to fall back on. That's why now's a good time to snatch up the RAVPower 5600mAh battery pack that's currently available from Amazon for only $19.99 with a coupon code. Read More
