Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo True Wireless Earbuds | $42 | Amazon | Clip the $3 coupon

Anker just keeps on iterating on its true wireless earbuds, and now, you can get the new Soundcore Liberty Neos for an all-time low $42 (after clipping the $3 coupon), down from the usual $60-$65.

As Anker’s new budget true wireless buds, there aren’t too many bells and whistles here, save for the ability for both earbuds to operate independently (many true wireless earbuds have one bud pair to the other, rather than both pairing to your phone), and Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a rock solid connection from a longer distance.

The earbuds should for 3.5 hours on a charge, and the charging case includes 12 hours worth of battery life too for longer sessions. That’s not as much as some of Anker’s more expensive models, but honestly, it’s enough for most situations.

The Recast takes the stations your antenna pulls in, and then streams them to all of your devices over the internet, while also acting as a DVR.

Anker SoundCore Icon Mini Bluetooth Speaker | $25 | Amazon | Use code WELOVEFATHER

The spiritual successor to the popular Anker SoundCore Sport, the SoundCore Icon Mini is a tiny speaker that’s designed with the outdoors in mind, and you can save $5 by using the coupon code WELOVEFATHER.

The Icon Mini boasts eight hours of battery life, which is awfully impressive in a speaker that weighs as much as your phone, and takes up about as much space as a deck of cards. It’s also IP67 dust and water resistant, so it can even get fully submerged (to a point) without taking any damage. But best of all, if you get two of them, you can pair them together for stereo sound that will fill your beach tent or campground.

2-Pack Aukey Power Receptacles With USB | $20 | Amazon | Promo code W7QYN9EV

As far as home improvement projects go, it’s tough to beat the effort-and-cost-to-cool-factor ratio of installing power receptacles with built-in USB charging ports. Why plug in a big ugly USB wall charger if you don’t have to?

Aukey has been one Amazon’s top sellers of charging gear for years, and $20 for a two-pack of USB receptacles (with promo code W7QYN9EV) is about as cheap as we’ve ever seen.

Amazon’s Prime Pantry program has been few a few different iterations, but it’s always been an easy way to stock up on certain groceries without actually going to the grocery store, which is just awful!

Memorial Day is one of the best times of the year to buy a mattress, and Leesa isn’t letting us down with 15% off both its standard foam and hybrid spring mattresses, plus two free pillows with every order.

The pillows themselves are somewhat mysterious—they’re automatically added to your card, and are described as “Down Alternative Pillows,” which aren’t listed on Leesa’s pillow page—but hey, they’re free.

The queen Leesa mattress will set you back $845 during this sale (down from $995), and the equivalent hybrid mattress costs $1,440 (down from $1,695). If you need help deciding, there’s a comparison page here, so you can sleep easy with your decisions.

The Apple Watch charging cable is an awkward thing to pack for a trip. For one, it’s probably firmly attached to some kind of dock or stand on your nightstand, and thus easy to forget. For two, the thin cable with a big, heavy puck on the end is a tangling nightmare in your bag.

Enter UGREEN’s portable Apple Watch charger, now down to $32 after you clip the $2 coupon and add promo code HDSHVH58. It doesn’t have a cable at all, but rather plugs straight into a USB charging port, and balances your watch on top. Smart!

To get the charger for $24, you’ll need to clip the $3 coupon on the product page, then add promo code KINJAPD3 at checkout. Not for nothing, that $24 final price is about half of what Apple chargers for a much larger charger with the exact same power output.

If, like me, you prefer to spend as much time as possible under a blanket at home, Gravel made a blanket that you can take with you anywhere.

Photo: Gravel

The Layover Travel Blanket isn’t the only compact, nylon blanket out there, but it does seem to be one of the most thoughtfully designed. It has a leg pocket to keep your feet extra warm (and hide them if you take your shoes off on a plane)! It has a built-in storage pocket for your phone and keys! It packs down into an included sack that’s smaller than a pair of shoes! It weighs less than a pound! Plenty of people pack a travel pillow to stay comfortable on planes, trains, and busses, and Gravel’s betting that they can convince a lot of travelers to bring a blanket too.

The Layover is the third Kickstarter project from Gravel, the folks behind my personal favorite toiletry kit, and has already blown through its funding goal. You can cozy up to the blanket for an earlybird price (currently $99) by preordering, or save more by preordering two. They snap together to form a larger blanket, after all.

Anker’s smart light bulbs have long been a hit with our readers, and the new models are significantly smaller than the originals, while offering a redesigned Wi-Fi antenna for a more stable connection.

Of course, they still work with Alexa and Google Assistant, and you can control them from your phone without a hub. This model doesn’t have any colors or a tunable color temperature, but it’s on sale for an all-time low $12, and is a great way to augment a Philips Hue system in the rooms where you don’t need tons of features.

Anker Soundcore Life 2 Gift Bundle | $70 | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon

From time to time, Anker offers gift bundles that offer multiple great products for an affordable price, and one of the best is even cheaper than usual today.

The Soundcore Life 2 gift set includes a set of Soundcore Life 2 over-ear noise canceling headphones, a PowerCore 5000 battery pack, a premium PowerLine+ microUSB charging cable, and a premium AUX cable for just $70 after clipping the $10 coupon.

Portal Cord
Photo: Kickstarter
Advertisement

Battery packs are useless without cables, so one way to make sure you always have one is to just, uh, build the battery into the cable.

In addition to be being a fully-capable Lightning cable, the Portal Cord offers up a decently-sized, 1,800 mAh battery capable of charging an iPhone XS to about 70%. (USB-C and MicroUSB versions are also available, in addition to Lightning).

Advertisement

Of course, the Portal Cord isn’t the first product to do this, but it looks like a real marriage between a cable and a battery pack. Unlike the discontinued Jackery Jewel and the Nomad Battery Cable which were ostensibly lipstick-sized battery packs with a cable running through, the Portal Cord splits its battery capacity between four humps. This design choice makes the cable a little bit more manageable and cord-like. (At first glance, I actually mistook it to be Apple’s BeatsX headphones.)

Advertisement

Of course, the 1,800 mAh battery isn’t likely to replace your dedicated power bank for extended trips away, but it’ll definitely do well in a pinch.

Advertisement

And unlike a battery pack, it’ll charge while you sync your phone with your computer or plug it into the wall. This means you’ll never have to remember to charge it. (Like its competition, the cable prioritizes the charging of your smartphone before it begins charging the internal battery of the cable.)

If this sounds like something you’d like, you can pledge $55 on Kickstarter in your choice of black, white or gray. It’s quite a bit more than a regular cable, or a regular battery pack, but for some, the convenience of an always-ready battery may very well be worth the cost.

Sometimes the number of built-in LAN ports in your sexy, modern router isn’t enough. Luckily there’s a cheap solution: Networking switches.

This $15 5-Port model is the cheapest we’ve ever seen on Amazon and a few bucks less than average going rate. But the $16 8-Port model is an even better deal. That’s 3 extra ports for just one more dollar. That’s a steal.

It’s also quite rare that ones with metal housing can be so cheap. So save yourself a future headache, clip the coupon on the page, and invest on either of these models. You won’t regret it.

At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering three months for FREE, for a limited time.

This deal is even available to non-Prime members, though it’ll renew at $10 per month instead of $8. But either way, three months to stream the new Vampire Weekend on repeat for free? Yes please.

Our readers’ favorite VPN recently raised prices for the first time ever, and the company’s best-value (and Kinja Deals-exclusive) three-year plan is going away at the end of the week, so this is your last chance to subscribe at the best per-month price available.

Three-year plans aren’t available to the general public at all, but if you click this link, you can get three years for $99, which works out to just $2.75 per month. That’s only $9 more than it was cost to the price hike, and while shorter plan lengths are available, none come close to the per-month pricing of this three-year membership. For example, the publicly available two-year plan costs about $84, and a month-to-month plan will set you back $10 per month.

If you subscribe to the three-year plan today, you’ll be able to continue to renew it at the same price for the life of your subscription, so this is a great chance to lock in a terrific deal.
