Today on Amazon, you can get one of each for $23, within about $1 of the best price Amazon’s ever listed on this 2-pack.

Deals You May Have Missed

Refurb Apple Watch Series 4 44mm | $379 | Walmart
Photo: Gizmodo

The Apple Watch Series 4 is kind of a marvel, at least compared to the Series 1 model currently on my own wrist, so I’m awfully tempted by this refurb sale on the larger, 44mm model, the first such discount we’ve seen.

$379 is a $50 discount from the usual $429, and the deal is only available on one size, in two colors, with no cellular option available. But if you’ve been trying to stop yourself from buying one since you first saw it in the Apple Store (guilty), this deal might just be tempting enough for you.


Oontz Angle Bluetooth Speaker | $21 | Amazon | Clip the $4 coupon
Photo: Amazon

The original OontZ Angle is one of our readers’ five favorite water resistant Bluetooth speakers, and you can grab it for just $21 on Amazon right now after you clip the $4 coupon, within $1 of the best price we’ve ever seen. You can’t actually submerge this one like you can some newer Bluetooth speakers, but it can take a splash or two from the pool, so go ahead and do a cannonball, your music will be fine.


Teckin Smart Power Strip | $22 | Amazon | Promo code TECKIN22

At $22 (with promo code TECKIN22), this smart power strip costs about as much as a standard smart plug, but it includes four smart AC outlets that you can control individually with your smartphone or Alexa, plus four USB ports too (though you can only control them as a set).

Advertisement

The free control app and Alexa will recognize the power strip as five different devices (four AC outlets, and the USB ports as a group) , all of which you can name, schedule, connect to your favorite voice assistant, and control from anywhere.


Zero Grid Card Holder | $9 | Amazon | Clip the $1 coupon and use code HHQJNHB8

You have to carry your phone, and you have to carry a wallet (for now), but there’s no rule saying that they can’t be one thing.

Advertisement

The Zero Grid card holder sticks onto the back of basically any phone or case, and holds up to 8 cards, or or fewer cards plus some cash, all while protecting them from RFID skimmers. Plus, it’s one less thing to forget when you leave the house.

Today on Amazon, use promo code HHQJNHB8 and clip the $1 coupon to get any of the four available colors for about $9, the best deal we’ve seen.


Sabrent USB 3.0 SATA Cable | $5 | Amazon | Promo code 45BKAWV9

If you have any old SSDs lying around, this SATA to USB 3.0 cable can turn them into speedy external drives, with no tools required. Sure, there are plenty of enclosures that will do the same job, but I think it’s kind of cool to be able to see the label of the SSD.

Get it for $5 with promo code 45BKAWV9, while they last.


15% off PicasoLabs Leather Sleeves | Promo code KINJA015 | Amazon | Plus $8 for custom engraving

Your laptop is one of the most expensive things you own, and it deserves to be treated as such. Rather than throwing it roughshod into your bag, slip it into one of PicasoLabs’ beautiful, hand-stitched leather sleeves, now back on sale just for our readers, this weekend only.

Jesus Diaz raved about these and interviewed the creator on Gizmodo a few years ago, and now you can pick your own from Amazon for 15% off with promo code KINJA015, plus $8 if you want it engraved.

There are several options available, and prices will vary depending on the size of your laptop. They’re all designed specifically for various MacBook models, but compare measurements, and you could probably find one to fit your Windows Ultrabook as well. No matter which one you choose, you’ll save 15% at checkout with that promo code.


Preorder Anker Nebula Capsule II | $500 | Nebula

The much anticipated release of the Anker Nebula Capsule II is only about three months away, and you’ve got one last chance to preorder and save (this time on Nebula’s site) if you missed out on the Kickstarter campaign.

Advertisement

The original Capsule was excellent for its size, but the Capsule II looks like it’s going to be just plain excellent. From our original write-up, there are a lot of new features here, but three stand out:

1) Resolution: The original Capsule’s standard definition 480p has been bumped to 720p, so your videos should look a lot crisper. Easy win.

2) Brightness: The first Capsule’s 100 ANSI lumen bulb was fine in a dark room, but the Capsule II’s is twice as bright, which means you’ll be able to get a usable picture in more lighting conditions, and at larger screen sizes. I saw it firsthand in a fairly well-lit event space, and while not as bright as a TV screen or a full-sized projector, it was definitely bright enough to watch a movie.

3) Software: The original Capsule had a version of Android installed, but it was pretty janky, and didn’t have access to Google Play. This time around, the Capsule II ships with Android TV 9.0 onboard, with access to the vast Google Play app store, which means you won’t have to rely on your phone for casting content.

This $500 preorder deal isn’t as good as the $400 price tag that Kickstarter backers got, but it’s still $100 less than MSRP. Orders start shipping June 1, so start lining up that summer outdoor movie series in your backyard.


Paintable Cable Management Channel | $13 | Amazon | Promo code JN29LM5W

Listen, I know it’s daunting. But you should really get your cables under control. Nobody wants to look at a tangled rat king of HDMI cords, power cables, and the dust bunnies the inevitably attract. There are lots of ways to go about this, but a wall-mounted, paintable cable channel is one of the most professional looking solutions.

This complete set is only $13 today with promo code JN29LM5W, and includes eight 15.7" channels, plus right angle pieces, and several mounting options, including wall anchors and apartment-friendly adhesive.


Tacklife Hot Glue Gun + 30 Glue Sticks | $7 | Amazon | Promo code B3CVW4MN
Photo: Amazon

You never know when a hot glue gun might come in handy, so pick one up for $7 with promo code B3CVW4MN if you don’t already own one. It even comes with 30 sticks of glue, which should last most people for years, if not decades.


Micromobility is the buzzword of the moment, and it’s true that in certain areas, single-person, electric-assisted transportation makes a ton of sense. But you don’t have to line the pockets of yet another Silicon Valley oligarch every time you want to rent an electric scooter or bike; you can just buy one upfront, and ride it wherever and whenever you’d like.

Advertisement

Today at Walmart, Hyper’s E-Ride city and mountain bikes are both on sale for $598. Aside from the different shape and tires, they can both scoot along at up to 20 mph for up to 20 miles on a charge, and of course, there are always pedals you can use as well.


Vacu Vin Wine Saver Concerto with 2 Vacuum Stoppers (White or Black) | $12 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Despite being a single malt guy, I occasionally drink wine. And more often than not, I don’t finish the entire bottle (cause it makes me frisky). That’s why the Vacu Vin Wine Saver is a life saver. (Shut up, it’s Friday.)

Advertisement

This current price is a $1 off the lowest we’ve seen in over a year. And, hell, for ~$10, you’ll save a lot of cash by not having to pour out wine that’s gone bad. This thing is something I’d recommend even when it’s not on discount.


12-Pack Original Soylent | $23 | Soylent | Subscribe & Save + promo code SPRING30
Photo: Amazon

Look, food is great. I love food. I love chewing. I love sampling varying flavors in a single sitting. But sometimes, life gets in the way of sitting down for a meal, but you still want to put something more nutritious in your body than a bag of chips or a fast food burger. That’s where Soylent comes in.

Advertisement

Each bottle is a meal in itself, with 400 calories, 20g of plant-based protein, and a bunch of vitamins. And no, it’s not made of people. 12-packs of the stuff usually sell for $34 (for the original flavor), but right now, if you choose Subscribe & Save and enter promo code SPRING30 at checkout, you’ll get the pack for $23, or less than $2 per bottle. That’s about as cheap as Soylent ever gets, so stock up.

Note: Original flavor only.


BauBax Travel Pants | Kickstarter

About a year ago, we covered the BauBax 2.0, which combined over 25 features into what we called the multitool of jackets. Now, you can get the same Swiss Army Knife-level of utility from the company’s upcoming pants.

The BauBax travel pants are available as both chinos and joggers (fourth pants!) for men, and leggings and joggers for women, but they all share the same basic characteristics. Most notably, they’re constructed from absorbent bamboo viscose on the inside, and moisture wicking merino on the outside, which combine to efficiently get sweat away from your skin.

They’re also lightweight, water resistant, stretchy, SPF 50, fast-drying, and as you’d expect from BauBax, include a few zippered pockets to protect your valuables while you travel. They’re not as packed with bells and whistles as the company’s jackets, but they seem like a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe. The company’s already raised a staggering $750,000 on Kickstarter with over a month to go, and you can get your preorder in starting at $108.

Screenshot: Tercius Bufete

Right now, Twitch Prime subscribers can get up to a year of Nintendo Switch Online benefits, including online play, access to classic NES games, and other benefits thanks to Twitch Prime.

If you’ve got Amazon Prime, you can sign up for Twitch Prime for free.

Here’s how it works: You can claim the 3-months membership offer now by linking your Twitch and Nintendo accounts, then come back to claim the 9-month individual membership 60 days later, once it unlocks. Just set a calendar appointment! And if you’re already an individual Nintendo Switch online member (no family memberships, sorry), this deal just extends your renewal date for free.


Anker Zolo Liberty Headphones [Upgraded] | $70 | Amazon | Promo code SDCZOLO1

You might have heard a thing or two about some new Apple headphones last week, but they aren’t the only high profile wireless earbuds to get an upgrade recently.

Advertisement

These new and improved Zolo Liberty headphones are sort of a cross between the original Liberties and the now discontinued Liberty+, which we reviewed last year. They keep the design of the original Liberties, and still don’t have app-based EQ settings, but they did steal Bluetooth 5.0 and improved battery life from the more expensive version. In fact, they now claim to run for up to five hours untethered (the same as AirPods), and for up to 40 hours when combined with the charging case (a lot better than AirPods).

True wireless earbuds with Bluetooth 5 and that kind of battery life are no joke at any price, but at $70 (with promo code SDCZOLO1), they’re an absolute steal.


Huanuo Single Screen Gas Mount Arm | $42 | Amazon | Promo code G3NG3U79
Huanuo Dual Screen Gas Mount Arm | $63 | Amazon | Promo code FW33E6O5
Huanuo Three Screen Gas Mount Arm | $96 | Amazon | Promo code IGX48VND
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Huanuo’s inexpensive monitor arms aren’t quite as nice as the high end models, but they’re surprisingly good given how affordable they are, and they’re even cheaper today with promo codes.

You can choose from a one, two, or three-screen gas spring arm with full articulation, meaning you can move your monitor up, down, side to side, on a swivel, and even rotate them 90 degrees. Just be sure to note the codes, and make sure your monitors are VESA mountable.


Thermapen Mk4, Blue and Yellow | $79 | ThermoWorks

Our readers are big fans of the ever reliable Thermapen, but quality comes with a price tag to match. That’s why you should take advantage of this discount on the Thermapen Mk4 model, down from it’s usual price of $99 to $79 in yellow and blue colors. The sale lasts for a limited time, so don’t get burnt by waiting to long to add one to your kitchen tool box.
