Do you find that your devices constantly need more juice while you're out and about? There's a good solution for that quandary: a portable charger. As a day-one Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, I quickly learned how important always having one with me is, and now I never leave home without one (even though the N4 is extremely battery efficient by comparison). If you're in the market for just such a charger, Amazon has a couple of good deals going right now for EasyAcc's 10k and 12k mAh chargers, at $28 and $37 respectively.
Need more proof that a Nexus 7 refresh is on its way? The deals are just flowing in. Adorama has knocked $50 off the price of a new 32 GB Nexus 7, bringing the beefier version of the tablet down to just $199. This price is part of a special email promotion, and it's quite lower than the $230 price point the tablet currently goes for at the site. The Nexus 7 may no longer be the peppy little device it used to be, but it's still a good deal for the money.
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.
If you're in the market for a new gadget but can't justify paying full price, refurbished hardware is a good way to get the most bang for your buck. While the word "refurbished" is somewhat tainted with a negative mental association, the odds are that you'll get a problem-free unit that will provide the same life as if you bought it new (in some cases the unit has simply been returned and can't be re-sold as "new").
If you're in the market for a new phone on AT&T, the time to buy is now. The company is running a promotion that knocks 50 percent off of all smartphones – including top-tier handsets like the Galaxy S4/Active or HTC One. To make this deal even more enticing, all activation fees are also getting waived through the end of the month. That's a hell of a deal.
Here's how it works: you select the device you want, add it to the cart, and go through the normal motions of selecting your plan (or upgrading your line if you're already an AT&T customer).
Carrying your mobile devices around with you is kind of what they're for, but that might mean venturing far from a power outlet. If you run out of juice, then what? Disaster. You'd probably end up devoured by wolves, or something. Lucky for you there are some killer deals on Powerbag messenger bags today.
Update: Looks like the Vau.lt deal is sold out, folks.
It's a little late in the day, but there are still deals to be had. Yesterday was a killer day for app sales, but today has a nice assortment too. Let's see what we have.
Taking pictures is cool, but what if you want a small portable tablet to look at your pretty pictures on? That's where this deal comes in. Over at Adorama you can get a bundle deal on a Sony Alpha NEX-5R and Google Nexus 7 for just $687.99 with free shipping.
The NEX-5R is a pretty highly rated camera with a 16.1MP APS-C sensor – it's sitting at 4.2 stars on Amazon.
We like to keep an eye out for deals, and there is nothing more consistently wallet-friendly than the Humble Bundle. Not only can you get a killer deal, it's charity so you can feel good about spending the money, too. Humble Bundle With Android 6 has arrived with more cross-platform games that will work on your Android device.
This time the assortment of games looks better than ever. Pay any price and you get Pulse, Stealth Bastard Deluxe, Organ Trail (note the spelling), Fractal, and Aquaria.
