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
