Mo' gadgets, mo' problems. Well, power problems, anyway, as in how do you keep everything juiced when you're traveling? I've long been partial to the MyCharge Peak 6000, but it's fairly pricey at around $70 (the current price at Amazon).
What's so great about the Peak? To recharge it, you just plug it right into a wall. And to charge most of your gear, you just fold out a built-in arm. Today's deal is nearly as great, and in some respects even better.
Today only, and while supplies last, Daily Steals has the New Trent Chargepak NT600C mobile charger for $35 shipped. Best price elsewhere: at least $50.
The NT600C resembles the Peak in that it packs a 6,000mAh battery, enough juice to recharge most smartphones at least twice and even some smaller tablets at least once. Plus, it has fold-up wall prongs for super-easy recharging.
As for charging your gear, the Chargepak includes two USB ports (a 1A and a 2A for phones and tablets, respectively) and a built-in Micro-USB arm that tucks away when not in use. Consequently, this is a killer pick for folks with Android and other microUSB-powered devices, though obviously it'll work with anything thanks to the USB ports. For those it's merely BYO sync/charge cable.
So what's the general consensus on the product? Over at Amazon, some 227 customers rated it 4.6 stars out of 5 on average. Needless to say, popular product -- and a steal at $35 out the door.
However, be prepared to wait, perhaps as long as 2-3 weeks: Daily Steals is rather notorious for slow shipping. That's the only downside I can see to this sweet deal on a sweet mobile charger.
Bonus deal: Got Poe? Edgar Allan, I mean. Today only, in honor of the famous author's
birthdeathday, Creatividad's deliciously creepy iPoe - The Interactive and Illustrated Edgar Allan Poe Collection for iOS is available free of charge. Originally $3.99, the interactive storybook offers "The Tell-Tale Heart" and other classics -- just in time for Halloween.

It includes four complete games: Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead: 400 Days. That's a lot of adventure bang for the buck. GameFly has several other game bundles on sale as well, but only until tomorrow. Thanks to reader Robert for sharing the tip!
Bonus deal No. 3: Security time! For how much longer I don't know, but as of this morning, Fry's is still offering Kaspersky Internet Security Multi Device (Win/Mac/Android) for free after a pair of mail-in rebates. Twice the hassle, yes, but ultimately you're scoring a commercial security suite for five devices (in whatever configuration you want) at zero cost. Read CNET's review to learn more. Thanks to the unnamed reader who shared this tip!
