The era of ubiquitous wireless charging isn't quite upon us. With metal bodies blocking the connection and fast charging reducing how much time we spend tethered to a wall, most of us don't expect to see all that many people (even those with high-end devices) dropping their phones on pads Read More
The HTC 10 is a flagship phone, and it comes with a flagship price. Placing an order for one will cost you $699.99. That's enough money to buy a couple laptops or a dozen and a half Fire tablets.
Fortunately there's a coupon code that will reduce the price. Read More
Portable chargers are nice. They don't quite make up for phones with crappy battery life, but they come close. Plus they bring the peace of mind that comes from knowing you won't be tethered to a wall if your phone decides it won't make it through the evening.
You can grab one at full price, but the reason you're reading this is so that you don't have to. So let's cut straight to the chase. Read More
When you connect something to Wi-Fi, it becomes a smart thing. When you connect multiples, they become smart things. SmartThings took this concept to heart and made this the name of the company and its products. SmartThings makes things that make your home smarter by transmitting data over Wi-Fi.
To kick off spring, SmartThings is selling all of its products for 20% off. Read More
Portable battery packs are nice. When they're slim, they're even nicer. Taking up less space goes hand in hand with the whole being portable thing.
iMarku makes a 20,000mAh external battery pack that is only 12mm thick. Read More
Coupons are great. Who doesn't like saving money on stuff? (Or better yet, free stuff.) But we can all agree that keeping track of coupons is awful. With this in mind, Google introduced the Save To Wallet API way back in 2012. It was a pretty simple way to transfer loyalty card or coupon information directly from a webpage or email into the Wallet app. Unfortunately, Android apps didn't get this same feature until two years later (yeah, this was clearly a priority). Then the whole Wallet reorganization happened and Android Pay was born.
The "Save to Wallet" API was renamed "Save To Android Pay," and pretty much everyone proceeded to continue ignoring it. 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
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
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
This month millions of people will be travelling to see friends and family for various holidays. And that's great. What isn't great is a 12-hour car trip with five people and only one available DC outlet for five phones, two tablets, one Wi-Fi hotspot, and a USB-powered cup warmer. With a little advance planning and just ten bucks, you can avoid backseat scuffles and keep everyone charged and happy thanks to a 4-port car charger (compatible with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 standard) from Amazon.
The Tronsmart unit isn't overly flashy or complicated, it's just 4 USB ports and a cigarette lighter adapter (and from the photos, it looks like it doesn't have any annoyingly bright LEDs, either). Read More
