Nomad's ChargeKey offers up to 60W of output for fast on-the-go charging
A solid charging cable is a must-have nowadays, whether you're a digital nomad working on the road or sitting in an office. However, taking your phone's USB-C cable with you isn't always the best choice. They're not the most durable cables you'll find, and over time they'll wear down due to excessive bending and may even break. So it's important to have something that's not only durable, but can be taken with you without the fear of damaging it while you're on the move. Thankfully, there's a great little accessory we've come across that is designed for this exact situation — the Nomad ChargeKey keychain charging cable.
From the Watch 6 to the Galaxy Tab S9, free Samsung credit is just an email address away
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Unpacked on July 26 is going to be one humdinger of a product launch. Normally we're introduced to between two and five devices during a big Samsung launch, but we're rumored to have a whopping seven: the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Watch 6, and Watch 6 Pro/Classic, and the three sizes making up the Galaxy Tab S9 series. That's a lot of lovely new tech to go around, and even if you don't flip for foldables, the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Tab S9 will be vying for the throne in their respective segments.
The discounts apply to Hue light bulbs, light strips, and bridges
Philips Hue is to smart lights what Ring is for doorbell cameras. The company has been making innovative lighting products for a long time now, and there are few things easier to recommend in the tech space than a bulb or light strip with its insignia on it. The only real caveat of the Hue line is that its products tend to be on the more expensive side, so we try to jump on any sales when they arise, and there just so happens to be one going on at Best Buy. The retailer is taking 20% off any two or more (eligible) Hue smart home items.
