Electronic Deals – March 16th, 2018: Gear VR, Quick Charge 3.0 Chargers & More


With the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus launching today, Amazon has decided to drop the price of the Gear VR with Controller. Bringing it from $129 to just $109. This Gear VR will indeed work with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, even though Samsung did not unveil a new Gear VR headset this year with the Galaxy S9. It will work with Galaxy S and Galaxy Note smartphones newer than the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5. So there are plenty of smartphones that it'll work with. It does use a USB-C connector, but there is a micro USB adapter for those that have an older device.

On top of the Gear VR, there is also a few other great deals going on today, including a Quick Charge 3.0 wall adapter for just $15 from AUKEY. This is a great wall charger to pick up since it can charge your smartphone even faster than a traditional car charger. There are many smartphones that work with Quick Charge 3.0, this includes the HTC U11, LG V30, LG G6, and many more. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S9 does not support Quick Charge 3.0, but it is backwards compatible with Samsung's Adaptive Fast Charge, so it'll still work without damaging the device. So it's still a great pick up, especially for a future device, or any other devices that might be in your home. There's also a Quick Charge 3.0-compatible car charger from Anker on sale for $19.99, and it's a dual-port charger too.

All of the deals listed below are accurate for today, and will expire at midnight PST on their expiration date. But keep in mind that some of these deals may end before then, if stock runs low or simply runs out. So if you are looking to get in on one of these deals, you'll want to do it as soon as possible.
