Best Tech Deals

JACKYLED Power Strip Tower | $18 | Amazon | Use code OFSZFNS6

What were they thinking inventing this surge protector and not calling it the Power Tower? Missed marketing opportunities aside, it comes with 10 outlets, four USB ports, and its own 6ft retractable power cord. Plus, it rotates for optimum space-saving. Get it for $18 with promo code OFSZFNS6.


If you don’t have the cash for your favorite Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones, you can pick up a pair of smaller (but still excellent) ATH-M30x cans today for just $59 on Amazon. They’re wired, yeah, but they’re worth it for the sound quality.


If you’re missing Alexa when you’re not at home (or in your car), you can take her anywhere with this Amazon Tap. Plus, now that you can enable an always-on microphone mode, it’s a much better product than it was when it launched. You can get a refurb one for just $30 today on Woot, which is easily the best price we’ve ever seen.


Elago AirPods Wrist Fit with Strap | $9 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Elago AirPods Wrist Fit Standalone | $7 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you’ve ditched the iPhone on your runs and rely on an Apple Watch and a pair of AirPods for listening to music, this ingenious little accessory allows you to leave the AirPod charging case at home, too.

At an all-time low $9 (after clipping the 5% coupon), the elago Wrist Fit is not actually an Apple Watch strap, but a second strap that you wear on your other wrist, with a built in holster for your AirPods. Or, for an all-time low $7 (no coupon required), you can get just the AirPod holder, and slide it onto your existing Apple Watch strap.


Phlips Hue 2-Pack A19 White Ambiance Bulbs | $38 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Phlips Hue 2-Pack BR30 White Ambiance Bulbs | $38 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Philips Hue Bloom Lamp | $51 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you didn’t get all the Philips Hue lights you wanted for Christmas—or if you did and now find that you need to scratch that itch even more—Amazon’s discounted a few different Hue products today, with an extra 5% clippable coupon thrown in on top for good measure.

The bulb two-packs are White Ambiance bulbs, meaning they can display different temperatures of white (i.e. dim, warm light at night, and energizing daylight during the day), but they can’t display colors.

The Bloom is a unique RGB lamp that you put on the floor or on a table, and point at the wall to “paint” it with light. It’s a really cool effect, and since it’s a standalone light fixture, you won’t have to use one of your existing lamps to use it.


AmazonBasics Electronics and Accessories Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Elizabeth Zimmerman

I don’t know your life, but I bet there’s something you need in today’s Gold Box of AmazonBasics electronics and accessories. Maybe you’ve been meaning to buy a UPS and just haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe, like me, you’re a peripheral junkie, and you need a USB hub to support your habit. Perhaps your New Year’s resolution is to finally start that podcast or YouTube channel, but you need a microphone to do it.


Sceptre 50" 1080p TV | $220 | Walmart
Sceptre 55" 4K TV | $260 | Walmart
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s nothing fancy about these TVs. The 55" is 4K, and the 50" is 1080p, but neither have HDR or any kind of smart functionality. But price is the most important spec for, say, a bedroom TV, and these hit the mark at $260 and $220, respectively.


Anker PowerStrip Pad | $28 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERPS1

Anker’s newest compact power strip can stick to your wall or the underside of your desk thanks to the included adhesive, and has every power connection you could need. We’re talking two AC outlets, two 12W USB ports with Anker’s PowerIQ tech, and even a USB-C port with 30W Power Delivery for laptops, Nintendo Switches, and other high-draw devices. Get it for $28 today with promo code ANKERPS1, and you’ll never be out of juice.


Bestek 150W Power Inverter | $12 | Amazon | Promo code SVSG5UQU
Photo: Amazon

You might not need to use it often, but a car inverter is one of those “just in case” things that you should always keep in your trunk or glove box. And at $12 with code SVSG5UQU, why wouldn’t you? This model can output 150W, which should be more than enough for most laptops, and it also has a couple of USB ports for your mobile devices as well.


Anker PowerLine+ 6' USB-C Cable | $10 | Amazon | Promo code CHRS8888
Photo: Amazon

If you got any new gadgets over the holidays, there’s a decent chance they charge over USB-C.

The Switch? USB-C.

iPad Pros? USB-C.

Sony’s newest noise-canceling headphones? You get the idea.

So if you suddenly have a handful of USB-C gadgets, and not enough charging cables to go around, you can fix that today for $10 with promo code CHRS8888. That gets you a 6' long PowerLine+ cable from Anker. It’s ultra-durable, wrapped in nylon, and ] bright red to make it easier to spot in your bag amongst all the other cords.


Logitech Harmony 650 | $33 | Amazon

Any number of remotes more than one remote is too many, and this $33 Logitech Harmony can combine all of your disparate remotes into one.

The Harmony 650 can control up to eight of your favorite home theater devices (from a database of nearly 250,000), and programmable macros like “watch a Blu-ray” can turn on all of the necessary devices, and switch a TV to the correct input with just a single button press.


Anker PowerLine+ II 6' Lightning Cable | $13 | Amazon | Promo code CHRS8453. Multiple colors available.

Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:

  • PowerLine - The original. Rubber-wrapped, and kevlar-reinforced.
  • PowerLine+ - The same, but wrapped in Nylon for added durability, less tangling, and a better feel.
  • PowerLine II - A more durable version of the original, and backed by a lifetime warranty, but without the benefits of nylon wrapping.

That confusion can now become a thing of the past, because they’ve combined the best of all of their cables into the new PowerLine+ II, and you can save on the 10‘ Lightning version today for the first time ever. It’s incredibly durable, it’s wrapped in nylon, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning it’s probably the last Lightning cable you’ll ever have to buy. Get it in any color you want today for $14, or about $6 less than usual, with promo code CHRS8453.


Anker SmartCharge F0 Bluetooth FM Transmitter | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ROAVF0BS

Anker’s Roav brand, the manufacturer of an incredibly popular dash cam, also makes some seriously smart car chargers. This one’s only $14 today with promo code ROAVF0BS.

The SmartCharge F0 is an FM transmitter that takes the Bluetooth signal from your phone, and rebroadcasts it the FM radio station of your choice, giving you truly wireless audio and handsfree calls in older vehicles that don’t have Bluetooth or even an AUX jack built in. And since this is an Anker brand, you also get two high speed USB charging ports.

The Gerber Shard isn’t as fancy as a lot of mini tool gizmos, but it’s airline approved and it fits on your keychain — and it’s $5. It features three drivers, a wire stripper, a pry bar, and a bottle opener, so maybe it’s just enough to keep you from having handy gadget withdrawals in “no weapons” situations.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

Thousands of our readers have bought Bowflex’s adjustable SelectTech dumbbells, and you can put them in your own home gym today for $224 when you clip the 10% off coupon.

That’s a decent chunk of change, but they barely take up any space, each dumbbell can go up to 52.5 pounds (apologies to your delivery driver) and make it more likely that you’ll work out this winter when it’s too cold to go to the gym.

We’ve gotten pretty used to wide-ranging REI sales over the past month or so, but the holidays are winding down, and their days are numbered.
