What you need to know

  • Google Fi SIM cards can now be ordered from Amazon.
  • With this recent addition, Fi SIM cards can now be bought directly from Google Fi, Best Buy, Target, or Amazon.
  • The SIM will set you back $9.99 with a $10 credit for your first bill to reimburse you for the cost of the card.

It’s now even easier than ever to get a Google Fi SIM thanks to the growing number of retailers that carry them. It all started in 2019 when Google began selling Fi SIM cards through Best Buy for $10 apiece. That made it quick and easy to run into a location and start using the service immediately. No longer would you have to wait for Google to ship you a SIM card to get started.

Later in the year, Google expanded its retail presence even further when Target began carrying Fi SIM cards. This made picking up a Fi SIM card even more convenient because Target has far more locations than Best Buy.

Starting on February 12, 2020, Google has now added yet another new retailer to the list, and it’s a big one. For the first time, you’ll be able to order a Google Fi SIM through Amazon. The SIM card is eligible for Prime shipping and will set you back $9.99, just like it would at Best Buy or Target. It also includes a $10 credit for your first bill to reimburse you for the cost of the SIM card.

For the uninitiated, Google Fi is a cellular carrier run by Google that makes use of three different mobile networks and Wi-Fi. Fi offers unlimited plans that start at $70 a month and decrease down to $45 per month once you add four or more users to your plan. However, it’s worth noting that your data will be throttled after reaching 22GB.

There is also a Flexible plan which starts at $20 a month for the service plus an additional $10 per gigabyte of data that you use. One of the best features of the Flexible plan, is that once you reach 6GB Bill Protection kicks in, and you’ll no longer have to pay for additional data. That means you’re guaranteed to not spend over $80 per month on your plan, but your data will be throttled once you hit 15GB.

Google Fi even works internationally for all of you frequent travelers, offering the same text and data rates while roaming abroad.

Ampere Cell Wireless Charger and UV Sanitizer review

If you’re like us, you take your phone everywhere. Like, everywhere.We tend to get our handset out while eating, traveling, and even in the bathroom. Indeed, the more you think about it, the more gross it seems. And in a world impacted by a global pandemic, it’s even dangerous.If you are one of those people who takes their phone with them and never bothers to clean it — and let’s face it, that’s you — Ampere has a device that will change your life. While that sounds a tad drastic, it’s not really a reach.The Ampere Cell Phone Sanitizer, available for pre-order at just $79.95, is actually two devices in one. Part wireless charger, part phone sanitizer, it’s 100% vital in today’s world.What is the Ampere Cell?An expandable UV santizer and wireless charger hybrid device, it has four UVC LEDs inside and two 15W Qi charging coils on the outside.Open it up and place your phone inside and the Cell uses UV rays to kill bacteria off the surface of your phone. It kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in only one minute. Or, place your phone on top of it and it will wireless charge any modern handset.UsageThere’s practically zero setup to consider with the Ampere Cell. All you have to do to get started is separate the base from the cover, place your item on the base, and press the red circle.When it turns green, it’s sanitizing, and after a minute when it turns red again, it’s done. It’s extremely quick and easy.We appreciate that the cover itself can be expanded and shaped to provide an angle. Whether portrait or landscape, it can be used as a prop to watch streaming video or keep an eye on notifications.Our only complaint is a minor one and that it does not actually come with the USB Type-C cable needed to power it. Understanding it was likely going to replace the charger we had on the desk, we were fine using our existing one. Ampere Cell 1 of 8 The Cell is slick, thin and small, so it is easy to carry around in a purse or bag. If you’re feeling stylish it comes in different colors, too. Because of its size and expandability we’ve used the Cell to sanitize jewelry, wearables, and other small items.The Ampere Cell is available to pre-order from Ampere’s website and is expected to ship in late October/November. Choose from red, black, and glow-in-the-dark.
