The Anker 5-port USB charger is a way to take that cluster of chargers that's turning the power strip behind your sofa into a fire hazard and consolidate it down into something manageable. With enough ports to charge five devices at once, you're also freeing up much-needed power outlets.
Last year this hub was available for $16 on Amazon if you used a coupon code that dropped the price down from $20. Those of you who meander over to the device's page today may find that it's gone down a bit since then. That's right, now it's only $12. And no, you don't need to fumble with any promotional codes.

Over a month ago the Moto 360 went on sale for $150. Now it looks like the circular smartwatch may have permanently dropped in price. The Google Store, Motorola.com, and Amazon are all listing it priced at $100 less than its original MSRP (though Best Buy still shows it at $250).
The Moto 360 probably remains the most well-known Android Wear device, even if it's hardly the latest and greatest. Thanks to Motorola's craftmanship, the watch still makes for a stylish timepiece. So if you don't want to wait around for the next generation of Wear devices or part with over twice as much money for the LG Watch Urbane, now's not a bad time to pick up a Moto 360 for a lot less than it used to be.

Today Nest has unveiled the second generation of its Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It will retail for the same $100 as the previous model, and it comes with a number of fixes intended to address the flaws of the first model.
The big new feature is the ability to silence an alarm using the companion app. Other additions include a sensor that can tell the difference between fast and slow fires and a humidity sensor that should prevent the device from going off due to steam. If you have a soon-to-be-released Nest Cam in the same room, the companion app will let you quickly get a view of what's going on once the alarms sound off. Read More
Can you have too many USB ports? That depends. Is eight too many? If your answer is a resounding no, then now is a good time to pick up a OctoFire USB charger on Amazon. The device that lets you and your buddies charge four short of a dozen gadgets has reached a new low of $32.
The hub plugs into the wall and provides 84 watts and 16.8 amps of juice. Each device is able to pull from speeds of 2.1A per port.
This time last year the OctoFire went for $80. By 2015, we saw it dip down to $55. Read More
If you're a patient deal hunter and you wait long enough, Amazon might just end up paying you to take the Fire Phone off its hands. If not, the price is pretty good at the moment: $179 for the unlocked 32GB model, without a contract to be seen. That's $10 down from where it was just a little more than a month ago, $270 off the original price, and a pretty awesome deal for a phone with a 4.7-inch 720p screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM... if you can stomach Amazon's Fire OS fork of Android.

The Nexus 6 is a massive phone. It's also an expensive one. At $650 for the 32GB model, it costs more than getting two or three Nexus 5s off eBay. But T-Mobile is making things easier for folks enamored with Google's current smartphone by dropping the price down $100. Today you can buy the phone outright for $550 ($549 and 84 cents to be precise).
If monthly payments are more your speed, this discount turns twenty-four monthly payments of $27.08 into two years of $22.91.
The 64GB Nexus 6 is also discounted. You can get it for $599.76, which amounts to $24.99 a month. Read More
The Moto 360 has dropped to some downright cheaper prices over the past few weeks. Amazon and Best Buy alike have sold the smartwatch for up to $100 off, depending on the variant. People have been able to buy the wearable in any color or material at a discounted price.
Now the Moto 360's Google Store listing has received a price drop as well. The device is showing up there for $165. And this doesn't appear to be a sale, either. The top of the page says, "Was $249.99, now $165."
$165 is lower than the recent deals we've highlighted, which may leave some earlier shoppers with an immediate case of buyer's remorse. Read More
Want to buy Google's developer kit for Project Tango, the tablet that can perform real-time 3D spatial mapping? Well you can't - not without an invitation, anyway. But for at least some of the applicants who have been invited to buy the Android-powered Tango tablet, the gigantic price tag is now a little more manageable. An Android Police reader passed along an email from Google offering Project Tango for $512, half its original price.
A few Twitter users are reporting the same thing, with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
Is it a "deal alert" if the cheapest option is still way more than most people want to pay? Probably not, but if you're in the market for Pioneer's first car stereo head units equipped with Android Auto, you can save some considerable cash anyway. The new models have been heavily discounted on Amazon almost immediately after being released, often by hundreds of dollars. For example, the top-of-the-line AVIC-8100NEX, with a wallet-pounding suggested retail price of $1400, is going for just $934 on Amazon.
Maybe a grand is a little much to pay for functionality that can mostly be replicated with any $200 Bluetooth-equipped stereo and a decent phone dock. Read More
It's been almost a year since gaming accessory maker Mad Catz tried its hand at Android hardware with the MOJO (or M.O.J.O., despite the lack of any actual acronym). The tiny set-top box with mobile hardware and a relatively stock build of Android hasn't exactly set the world on fire, even after a $50 price drop from its $250 MSRP shortly after release. Maybe that's why Mad Catz has decided to do it again: the MOJO can now be had for $149.99. UK readers can buy one for £119, while mainland Europe gets it for €149.
Perhaps Mad Catz is intimidated by new Android TV devices like the Nexus Player and the upcoming Razer Forge TV, both of which retail for just $100 and can play at least some Android games. Read More
