Cheap USB car chargers are a dime a dozen, even ones with enough ports to charge two devices at once. But this dual-USB (2.1A + 1A) charger from Elivebuy stands out, and it's not because this is the fastest charger of the bunch. It caught our attention because it just might save your life, and it will do it for six bucks if you go to Amazon and enter the coupon code Q626JPAD at checkout. Read More

Almost two years ago, I backed the iblazr project on Kickstarter. It promised an external flash for my phone that connected via the 3.5mm plug and brightened photos more than the built-in LED ever could. The project was successful, the company delivered quite on time, and the final product was good. However, as with any first-gen item, there were flaws and issues with the iblazr. Most importantly, the Android app was never up to par and the 3.5mm connection meant that on phones where the plug was on the bottom, you had your light angled wrong compared to your camera (which is usually on the top).

V-MODA's Crossfade LP metal headphones are again discounted over on Amazon. While usually priced at $200, today you can get them for just $70. That's nearly a third of the price.
The Codefade LP headphones are made of metal and likely durable enough to withstand headbanging against a wall. They're noise cancelling, which lets you tune out the nearby sane person asking you to stop. You have five color options to choose from, including white, red, black, and the same colors combined in a couple other ways. Read More
After somewhat missing the boat on mobile computing, Intel is slowly and steadily forging its way in the wearable market, trying to stay at the forefront of this new field. Over the past year or so, it has acquired Basis, formed a partnership with eyewear giant Luxxotica (Ray-Ban, Oakley, etc), announced a collaboration with Google and Tag Heuer for an Android Wear watch, and unveiled a button-sized chip for wearables named the Curie Module.

An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative. But today's Amazon Gold Box deal includes a battery that can actually start your car. How's that for flexibility? The Anker gadget (an economical brand name we've come to trust) is going for $59.99, $100 off the retail price. Read More

Dads love their music. Well, some dads do. And with Father's Day fast approaching, that makes now a good time to place an order for something that can make their music sound better and still have it arrive on time.
As a Father's Day Goldbox deal of the day, Amazon is offering a large selection of Bluetooth speakers with their prices cut. And we're not talking minor discounts. A speaker from House of Marley is going for $90 off, bringing the cost down to $130. Read More
The Galaxy S6 comes with support for wireless charging, but if you're going to do (mostly) without cables, you're going to need a compatible pad. Samsung will gladly sell you one for $50, which some would consider a bit much to drop on an alternative way to power their device. Fortunately, you can currently get a third party option on Amazon for 1/5th the price.
Ionic Pro's Galaxy S6 wireless charging kit is priced at $20.95, but you can get it for $10.47 by entering the coupon code 2O5I8F45 at checkout. Read More
If you're in the market for a super-portable Bluetooth speaker, you've got a lot of options. But if you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker that doesn't suck, and further more can be had at a discount, your options become significantly more constrained. According to Cameron Summerson, who's probably tried more speakers in the last year than he's had hot dinners, the Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM is an excellent choice. Read More
