We’ve already offered tons of ways to save on coding classes and mobile protection, but what about savings for the gadget lovers out there? We’ve rounded up the top gear deals of 2014 through the Android Authority Deals Store, and we think you’ll like a lot of what you’ll see here.
The majority of these items have been featured on our site in the past, but they are genuinely solid deals and offer a real savings when compared to other online retailers including Amazon. Let’s take a look!
Limefuel 20,000 mAh Battery Pack
Whether you’re out camping all weekend or going on a massive shopping or sightseeing excursion, there are times when we can’t get to an outlet. For those times, a power pack certainly comes in handy. There are tons of great choices out there from Anker and many others, but there are few options that are as well priced as the Limefuel LP200X. While the 20,000 mAh power bank costs $85 on Amazon and many other similar retailers, it can be yours from the AA Deals Store for just $35.
The Limefuel LP200X features two USB ports for simultaneous charging of two devices, and also packs a digital display that shows battery charge level, as well as a flashlight. Limefuel says it should provide well over 500+ lifetime use cycles and has auto-on/off technology to preserve battery life even further. Weighing 15 ounces and coming in at 6.4×3.1x.9-inches, this isn’t the smallest or lightest power bank around, but it is extremely affordable and the 20,000 mAh size means you can charge your devices multiple times over without having to worry about rejuicing this power pack.

Striiv Fusion Smartwatch & Fitness Tracker
While wearables have yet to completely hit mainstream, they seem to be marching in that direction. We’re seeing more and more wearables, particularly smartwatches and activity/fitness trackers. Looking for an all-in-one solution that can act as a smartwatch, activity tracker and yet doesn’t cost a fortune? You may want to take a look at the Striiv Fusion Smartwatch & Fitness Tracker.
For just a tad over $50, you not only get the Striiv Fusion, but also three interchangeable bands (black, denim-blue and red) that helps you best match with what you’re wearing. The box also includes a charging cradle — though you won’t have to charge it that often, as the device is said to offer 5 to 7 days battery life.
As for the hardware,the Striiv is a touchscreen fitness band that can be awakened by a simple double-tap and lets your scroll by swiping. The device does typical activity tracker tasks like monitor how many steps you’ve taken, calories burned and even has some basic sleep tracking features. Besides telling time, the Striiv also delivers notifications for devices with Android 4.3 or higher (also works with iOS devices).
It is worth noting that the Striiv does have some faults. A look around the web (Amazon comments, retailers, etc) revealed that the wristband isn’t that easy to put on, sleep tracking doesn’t work great, and there’s a few interface bugs and issues at this point, though software updates could remedy many of these problems. That said, this is a fitness tracker and a smartwatch in one, for well under $100. That’s an amazing value, warts and all. Grab the Striiv Fusion Smartwatch & Fitness Tracker from the AA Deals Store for only $54.99… that’s almost half off!
Extreme Micro Drone 2.0
Imagine soaring high above in the air, diving and dodging, performing amazing stunts and recording it all along the way. That’s exactly what you get with the Extreme Micro Drone 2.0, which flies at a range of up to 400 feet while recording your adventures in the sky thanks to a built-in camera.
While obviously best suited for outdoor use, it is also more than capable of being used (carefully) indoors and can even perform amazing tricks, thanks to a self-righting algorithm and special sensors that will help stabilize it back to its horizontal flying position after a trick is finished.
As you can might already know, such an advanced ‘toy’ can command quite the premium pricing, but thanks to Android Authority Deals you can get your hands on the drone nearly half off at just $74.99. Even better, that includes free global shipping in the mix!
