Sprint fires back at T-Mobile's prices with new $60 Unlimited Plan

330

Sprint's not leaving the single-line users out of the party — they're offering a new $60/month unlimited talk, text, and data plan. There's just one catch: You have to bring your own device, pay for one up front, or sign up for Sprint's Easy Pay monthly payments and upgrade plan. That said, if you're a Sprint customer (or are considering being one), that's still some substantial potential savings you're looking at.

Mophie Juice Pack for Galaxy S5 ships Sept. 8 for $99, preorders open now

26

Mophie — one of the best-known names in the battery case game — this morning dropped word that its Galaxy S5 Juice Pack will be available on Sept. 8 for $99, and you can preorder starting today. This battery weighs in at 3,000 mAh, or 107 percent of the stock GS5 battery.

There's a (rightful) argument that such a case isn't necessary for a phone like the Galaxy S5, since it has a removable battery. But for those who want a combination battery/case, it's a more-than valid option.

You can preorder here in either white or black.

QBracelet wrist battery is stylish, gives you half a charge for $100

20

There's something to be said for convenience and fashion in one, though we might have to question just how convenient the battery-as-a-bracelet QBracelet really is. The band splits in the middle, with a hinge on one side and your choice of a microUSB plug or Apple Lightning connector on the other. Simply pop it off your wrist and plug into the charge port on your phone to juice up. But how much juice are you looking at? Not enough, especially not for the $99 asking price. It's not a smartwatch — it's just a battery, for your wrist.
