If OnePlus is good at anything, it's building hype. We experienced months of that early this year during the lead up to the OnePlus One announcement. The company started playing up a "Go Further" announcement the other day for 12/17. Well, here we are and guess what... it's a battery. An external battery with USB ports and stuff called the OnePlus Power Bank. Oh.
This week, HTC is offering its accessories for 50% off. The list contains cases for various HTC phones, a battery pack, chargers, and RE camera attachments. The Nexus 9 keyboard case is also included, meaning you can get the $129.99 product for a more reasonable (but still pretty pricey) $64.99.
Waking up is not usually awesome, but with the Hale Dreamer Alarm Clock you can at least feed your gadget-lust first thing in the morning. This is an all-in-one phone charging stand and alarm clock that works with a dedicated app. It's $99 full price and currently listed for $79.99 on Amazon (rated 4 stars), but StackSocial has it for just $55.99 with free shipping.
The Nexus 9 has been shipping for a few weeks already. If you got yours and you want to protect it in style without splurging for the expensive Keyboard Folio, the official Magic Cover has just showed up in stock on the Play Store. Until now, the cover was available for pre-order on Amazon and only the coral amethyst variation was being sold on the HTC website. The Play Store shows all 4 colour options in stock, so you can finally pick the one you like best.
The LTE Nexus 9 is finally on sale, and the Magic Cover for the tablet is breaking cover for the first time as well. This accessory was announced alongside the tablet, but has yet to go on sale anyplace. If you head to HTC's website, you can buy one starting today, but it's only available in the coral amethyst color.
HTC's offering up a different deal every Tuesday, and this week you can get up to 75% off Double Dip and Double Dip Flip cases for the HTC One M8. Other protective accessories are going for 50% off.
The best deal is reserved for the HTC One M7, for which you can get a customized Double Dip cases for just $1. You can't engrave your name Moto-style, but you do get your choice of color for each of the three components.
Wireless charging is undeniably convenient, but fast it is not. With wired charging getting even faster thanks to Qualcomm-based Quick Charge technology, sometimes it just makes more sense to plug your device in. Maybe that's about to change, though. Freescale Semiconductor says it has a new wireless charging chip that can triple current limits on power transfer.
Update: Want a slightly older model for an even better price? The Harmony Smart Control package is $79.99, fifty dollars off, and includes most of the same functionality. It's lacking the included buttons on the larger remote for home automation, which won't matter much if you don't have any compatible hardware and/or you intend to use your smartphone anyway. This deal also disappears after today.
You can control your Chromecast with your Android phone.
If you weren't swayed by Amazon's Bluetooth speakers Gold Box deal or if you're looking for a solution to charge all the new speakers that you just bought, you might be happy to know that the Yubi Power 30W wall charger is being discounted to $8.99 — a whopping 82% off its original MSRP of $49.99.
As with most wall chargers in this category, the Yubi offers several USB outputs with varying amperage.
What's better than one deal? Several deals. If you approve, you should check out Amazon's Gold Box offers today for discounts on a plethora of Bluetooth speakers. You could save anywhere from $12 to $152 or more, depending on which speaker(s) you pick.
The biggest savings are on the TDK Life on Record TREK Max A34, a rugged, weatherproof speaker with an IP64 rating, additional Aux-In input, and a microphone (to serve as a speakerphone).
