Keep the party going with HMDX Jam Bluetooth speaker, and myCharge portable battery pack! Black Friday specials!

I've written, glowingly, before about the HMDX Jam Wireless Portable Speaker that uses Bluetooth to pump out solid sounds and act as a speakerphone.  And it does so in a solidly built, beautiful design, that, when packaged in its clear jar, is suggestive of jelly, hence the name Jam!

And I've also written about the very solidly designed and incredibly useful myCharge before.  Their latest model, the peak offers 6,000mAh of juice so you can power a 30-pin iPad as well as a microUSB device.  You can also power any Lightning iOS device, as long as you provide the cable, since there's an onboard USB port.  All of this makes the myCharge an invaluable item in my gadget bag.  The fact that it's so sleekly designed, including the fold out two prong plug, means it's ready to go when I am.  What I really like is the built-in Text-to-Speech that tells you, literally, the status so you know when it's full, low, or charging your device.

These items would be a must buy at list price, but thanks to Black Friday, and BestBuy, you can pick up both items at a great price.

The HMDX Jam is available now, in a tasty variety of colors at $29.99 instead of $49.99, and the vendor tells me that on Black Friday, the myCharge will be $59.99 (IN STORE ONLY!) instead of $99.99 as BestBuy's Deal of the Day!

Their size and design makes them ideal stocking stuffers, especially since they'll work with just about any Bluetooth and USB based device.
