So here’s the story: we recently featured a pretty sweet lighting company out of the northwest called A-Lamp Design. As I was putting together the article, I became entranced by the red power cords that Erol Chandler was using for his products. He tells me that a company called Conway Electric, also on the west coast, is cranking out these power supplies that put your average cord to shame.

Turns out, Conway Electric is doing all that and more. As one of the only UL Listed companies in North America (a very costly certification), Kevin Faul and his crew are making the type of power supply everyone wishes that they had under their desk. So he sends over Conway’s 12-foot Extō Dual-USB power source in mint with a red cord and I fell in love.

Moto-E-2015

Unlike most phone networks, FreedomPop offers unlimited talking and texting with no contract. 9to5Toys Specials currently has one year of service bundled with the second generation Moto E for $150 shipped.

9to5Google’s review was unapologetically positive calling it the “best small Android phone that (a very little amount of) money can buy

Motorola’s 2nd generation Moto E handset is universally recognized as an outstanding combination of quality and affordability. It runs a very recent Android Lollipop on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, displays content on a vivid 4.3-inch qHD screen, and has all-day battery life in the literal sense. We’re kicking it up a notch with this bundle, which comes with FreedomPop’s generous service, including 500MB of 4G data per month.

With this deal, you also get the Premier upgrade, which offers a ton of extra features, such as voicemail, data rollover, tethering, and VPN. As a bonus, you can switch to FreedomPop’s free plan at any time, and there are no termination fees if you decide to go elsewhere.

The deal takes 78% off the price of the Moto E with FreedomPop.

As an avid bike rider, I love to have a pair of Bluetooth in-ear headphones with me while I ride. Now that many wireless headphones (BT 4.0+) can connect to Apple Watch during workouts, it’s even handier than ever. One of the biggest worries about using in-ear headphones is that it’s difficult to hear noise around you when the music is cranked up. During outdoor physical activities, like biking down a country road for example, it can be difficult to hear oncoming traffic that may pose a risk to your safety.

That’s where AfterShokz: Trekz come in. This new Indiegogo campaign has developed a set of bone conducting in-ear headphones that keep your ear canals open but the music pumping. This project caught our eye, having already raised over 200% of its funding goal in just 24 hours.
