Having multiple devices that need to stay juiced up while you're out and about means that a portable charger should be a standard part of your on-the-go gear. If you don't already have one – or are in the market for a new one – Daily Steals has quite the deal going on a massive 9000mAh battery pack that can charge up to four devices at the same time.
The primary thing that sets this charger apart from comparable units (aside from being able to handle four devices at once) is that it actually has built-in microUSB and iPhone 30-pin connectors, so you don't have to carry extra cables with you. Read More

As you might expect, it has been completely revamped for the mobile platform, but it still offers that same classic gameplay that made Galaga a hit back in the early '80s. Read More
