Update 2: Best Buy and Amazon now offer the 16GB Moto X Pure for $239.99, a pretty nutty price for such a great phone 

Update: Don’t want the watch? Grab the Moto X Pure 64GB at Amazon for $319.99 ($130 off) or at B&H for the same price and they throw in a 64GB Micro SD card and only charge tax in NY state. 

Motorola offers the Moto X Pure Edition 64 GB for $399. But until June 28th, you can get the Moto 360 Sport FREE ($199 value) when you add it to cart at checkout. That’s a $200 savings and the best price we’ve seen for the combo. The Moto X Pure is a great Android phone with almost no overlay, 21 Megapixel camera and a huge display. You can also customize it with Moto Maker options including colors, wood backs and much more. The Moto 360 Sport is an Android Wear watch made for fitness.

A lot of folks, including myself, need to charge our USB devices away from an AC outlet. Whether it is for installing a USB camera in a remote location or doing work in a barn or shed that doesn’t have power or just being mobile outside and off grid, a USB Solar array is a great way to get that power you need without running ugly and costly wires.

Unfortunately, the sun only shines during the day and only will give you enough direct charge when those days are sunny. For the rest of the time, you’ll need to store that sunny electricity for use 24/7/365. Screenshot 2016-06-20 08.16.07

That’s where these nice EasyAcc discounted products come in. Solar Panel:

USB Batteries:

The EasyAcc Solar Panel is better than the garden variety fold out because it had 4 panels instead of the usual 3 meaning the Wattage jumps from 21W to 28W. That enables EasyAcc to allow simultaneous direct charging of 4 different devices and will even charge 2 devices at 2.4A each meaning that you’ll get a quicker charge on most devices. If you want to go a little cheaper, here are two smaller panels from Aukey but their charging capabilities are greatly diminished and it isn’t easy to recommend for this application:

But we’ve still got the issue of when the sun goes away… expand full story

Update: Amazon or Best Buy offer the new-ish UE Boom 2 Waterproof Speaker (in most colors) for $149.99 shipped ($50 off). 

GeedDeal’s Ebay site has the UE Roll Rugged/Waterproof Bluetooth portable speaker in Volcano 2 pack for $79.99 shipped. That’s by far the lowest price we’ve seen for a 2 pack and even a good price for a 1 pack (BOGO). These are listed as new, open box and carry a 90-day warranty from GeekDeal in Volcano color shown above. I reviewed the UE Roll extremely favorably and even recommend it over the UE Roll 2 at its deeply discounted price.

For reference, Amazon has 1 for $69.99-$100 and that’s a solid deal. So for $10 more, you are getting a second speaker.

Dads love these and they make great summer companions.  expand full story

UPDATE: You can also find the Mohu Re-Leaf for $30 with code CRUSHCABLE at Mohu.

We’ve had some great HDTV Antenna deals in the past but this might be the best ever with one that hits all the checkpoints and coming in at a super-low price.

Amazon/1byone offers the 1byone 50 Mile Super Thin HDTV Antenna with 20ft Coaxial Cable for $29.99 (a good deal) but Coupon Code: JNPAR9TT  drops it a whopping $13 to just $16.99 shipped. Why is this particular Antenna so great?

  • Transparent so it doesn’t block window view any more than it has to
  • Long 20-foot cable so that it can reach all the way across the room to the best window
  • With optional amplification powered by your HDTV or external USB port, get a 50 mile+ range
  • Excellent 4.1/5 star rating. Amazon’s #1 Best Seller
  • 12 month warranty and 30-day money back guarantee

What’s a better gift to dad than never having to pay a cable bill again? expand full story

Amazon offers the 1byone Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna (model OUS00-0561) with 16.5 Feet High Performance Coaxial Cable – Silver/Black, for $12.99. Coupon Code TU5XDSSL drops the price down $5 to just $7.99 Prime shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on a tier one HDTV Antenna with a decent coax lead (16.5 feet) and this one gets an impressive 4.1/5 star rating.

These are great for bringing in local channels (~25 mile radius) without having to drop insane prices on cable bills and cable boxes. You hook it right into your HDTV, program some channels and voila: free TV forever.  At $8 shipped, this wanders way into no brainer territory. Even if you aren’t a cord cutter, this serves as a great backup in case of cable outage or emergencies.  Great for Dads and Grads.

Don’t have a HDTV to hook it up to? Hook yourself up with a 24″ Vizio from Walmart refurb for $89.99 shipped. You are set for life and you haven’t spent $100!
