Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker SoundCore Spirit X Bluetooth Headphones | $22 | Amazon
Graphic: Amazon

Anker’s SoundCore Spirit X headphones are the sportiest member of the SoundBuds family, and are designed with active users in mind. Their ear wings ensure they stay put while you exercise, and an internal hydrophobic coating means your sweat won’t fry them. Hell, you could even swim with them. Their best spec though? 12 hours of battery life, which is basically unheard of in the space.

They normally sell for $36-$40, but today, you can get a pair for an all-time low $22. Even if you already have a set of wireless headphones, it never hurts to toss an extra pair in your gym bag or luggage in case you forget them.


UE Boom 3 | $120 | Amazon

Full stop, the UE Boom 3 is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers you can buy. It’s waterproof. It floats. It sounds amazing. It’s easy to use. And not for nothing, it looks beautiful.

Today on Amazon, all four colors are marked down to $120, matching an all-time low price. I suggest buying two, or three, or up to 150, because they can all be synced together to play the same audio in perfect harmony.

Amazon’s got a U3-rated Samsung 512GB card marked down to an all-time low $87 right now, or if you can get by with 256GB, an ever-popular SanDisk card is marked down to $35. The former is an all-time low, and the latter is within $5 of the best price we’ve seen.

V-Moda Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear Headphones (All Colors) | $100 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

V-Moda’s design language is unmistakable, and not everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s no denying that they make really great headphones. Their Crossfade Wireless over-ears are virtually indestructible, can run in both wireless and wired mode, and pack in massive 50mm drivers that should sound terrific no matter what you’re listening to. Today, all four colors are marked down to $100 on Amazon, an all-time low.


USB C to Lightning Cable RAVPower | $10 | Amazon | Promo code KINJA809

Third party, MFi certified USB-C to Lightning cables are finally here, and this $10 cable deal from RAVPower (with promo code KINJA809) is one of the most affordable we’ve seen to date. That costs more than a regular third party Lightning cable, but if you plug it into a USB-C PD charger, it’ll charge your iPhone at 18W. With regular Lightning cables, you’re limited to 12W.

For context, that means you can charge a newer iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes, which can really pay dividends while you’re traveling, and want to get as much juice as possible into your phone while you’re waiting to board a flight.

All-Clad Factory Seconds Sale | Home and Cook Sales
Graphic: Shep McAllister

All-Clad cookware is the holy grail of kitchen gear, but buying a lot of their pans can cost as much as redoing your kitchen. But every few months, the All-Clad Factory Seconds sale reemerges and gives the rest of us a chance to buy the best of the best.

Factory Seconds pans may feature minor cosmetic issues like scratches, or damaged packaging, but are still genuine, bona fide All-Clad pans, complete with aluminum or copper cores that extend all the way up the side walls for fast and even heating.

I’ve gotten a few Factory Seconds in my time, and they’ve all been in great condition, but just note that all sales are final.

We love label makers around these parts, but while banging out words and symbols on a tiny, physical keyboard and a black-and-white screen can be a fun blast from the past, it makes sense in this day and age to connect your label maker to your smartphone.

Brother’s P-Touch Cube is down to an all-time low $30 today, and offloads the creative part of the label-making process to your phone. Use Brother’s app to select from a variety of fonts, frames, and symbols, then send your labels to the Cube printer over Bluetooth to bring them to life. Just don’t go overboard; label addiction is real.


Takeya Cold Brew Maker | $16 | Amazon | Clip coupon on page

Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this top-selling Takeya, now down to $16 on Amazon after you clip coupon on page, within about a dollar of an all-time low.

This non-coffee drinker bought one of these a couple years ago, and I loved the thing (though admittedly, I have since upgraded to the OXO alternative). All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.


Biokleen Bac-Out Stain+Odor Remover Foam Spray | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you own a pet, you need to have a bottle of Biokleen Bac-Out at the ready, and it’s down to its best price in years on Amazon right now.

Here’s what cleaning expert Jolie Kerr had to say about it on The Inventory:

If you’ve been struggling to find a product that will nuke cat pee smell from carpet, upholstered furniture, mattresses and hard surfaces, struggle no more: You need Biokleen Bac-Out. It’s The Thing for cat pee odor elimination and, unlike other similar products, it’s effective on a variety of textiles and surfaces, which means you don’t need separate products for, say, tile floors versus carpeting.

Get a bottle for $7 today with Subscribe & Save (you can cancel after your first delivery), or $8 without it. Either way, that’s a couple bucks less than usual, and the best price on Amazon since 2017.


What can’t you ask Alexa to do in 2019? If you buy an AmazonBasics Microwave, you’ll be able to ask her to heat up and defrost anything and won’t need to waste your time pushing buttons. Though you will need to actually put the food in the microwave, Alexa isn’t quite that powerful.

Right now, you can get a refurbished AmazonBasics Alexa-Enabled 700-Watt Microwave for $40 on Woot. The microwaves are listed as refurbished, but Woot’s website makes a point to say the boxes will be marked Used - Very Good.
