Last week we told you about a killer deal on a wall charger that can potentially charge your smartphone up to 75% faster than the charger that ships with the phone.

You can still purchase that nifty wall charger by following the link in our earlier post, but what happens when you need to charge your gadgets while on the go?
Now, thanks to another limited-time deal, you can get a great portable charger with plenty of capacity for just $14 from Amazon (with free Prime shipping). More →

How annoying is it when you buy something online or in a store only to find out that it went on sale a few days later? Many stores have policies that offer to refund shoppers when this happens, but by and large, consumers don’t know about these policies or don’t bother to keep track of sale prices in order to take advantage of them.
Now, however, there’s a free service that does the heavy lifting for you, promising to automatically get you a refund if there are coupons you missed or if the price on something you purchased drops after you buy it.
In short, you’re crazy if you don’t sign up for this service. More →
Last week, we told you about a great deal happening on Amazon. For just $11, users were able to purchase a special charger that uses Quick Charge 2.0 technology to charge their compatible smartphones and tablets up to 75% faster than some stock wall chargers. This was apparently a pretty appealing prospect for BGR readers, because they flooded the site and the charger was sold out a short while later.
Well if you missed out on that deal, don’t despair: The $11 quick charger deal is back on at Amazon — at least, while supplies last. More →

A new report from The Information claims that Walmart is planning to roll out a shipping service of its own aimed at taking on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer.
Walmart’s upcoming shipping service is reportedly codenamed “Tahoe” and is on schedule to launch sometime later this spring or summer. Notably, Walmart was initially hoping to have its nascent shpping service up and running before 2015 but was ultimately forced to delay its release amid technical difficulties with the service’s software.
Battery life is and will continue to be one of the biggest pain points for smartphone owners, regardless of which handsets they might use. Comparatively poor battery life really doesn’t matter at all when it comes to Apple’s iPhones, but Android smartphone owners have a much wider range of choices, so battery life can certainly impact their buying decisions — and according to several surveys, it does.
The amount of time a charge lasts is the biggest issue when it comes to smartphone batteries, of course, but it isn’t the only issue. Wouldn’t your life be easier if your smartphone charged to full capacity quicker when you plugged it in? Well now, it can. More →
Everyone uses their phone differently but if you own an Android phone, there’s one app that everyone absolutely needs to have installed on their phones. Why? Because Amazon’s app store offers users one new free app every single day of the year. And they’re not just kids’ games and no-name apps — we’ve found some real gems and downloaded them for free thanks to Amazon.
But forget about getting one new app each day. How about getting 36 paid Android apps worth more than $110, all for free right now? More →
With the Apple Watch, it’s never been easier to order products online. Not only does Apple’s new wearable support Apple Pay, but Amazon, not surprisingly, already released an Apple Watch app with one-click purchasing functionality that we just had a feeling would be too dangerous for its own good.
