    Happy Friday!

    I’m sure this was a long week for many of you. You might have taken your kids candy hunting on Halloween, or you were partying yourself. Many of you stayed up late to watch the epic World Series between the Cubs and Indians, so I am sure Friday couldn’t come soon enough.

    There’s a good chance the charger in your car is a few years old. It’s time to upgrade with the AXGIO Quick charger which is on sale below. If you need to take advantage of fast charging speeds anywhere it will be in your car. You’ll also need the extra power to charge your device while using it for tasks such as GPS and wireless streaming.

    There are some pretty sweet deals on Amazon’s pre-Black Friday sales. The Nextbit Robin unlocked smartphone is at its lowest price ever. The Sony Xperia X Compact is also on sale, making for two great deals if you want to break free from carrier financing plans.

    The Moto 360 Sport is back on sale for just $139. Or you could get the hybrid Fossil watch that is actually a watch too.
