Today’s Best Tech Deals

Anker 6' USB-C to Lightning Cable | $15 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

The iPhone 11 Pro is finally going to ship with a USB-C to Lightning fast charger. But standard iPhone 11 purchasers, or anyone with an iPhone from the last couple of years, might not realize that they can fast-charge their phone too.

All you need is an 18W or greater USB-C charger (like this one), plus a USB-C to Lightning cable. Anker’s are MFi-certified, more durable than the ones Apple makes, and cheaper to boot. This 6' model will charge an iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes, and you can get it for $15 today, down from the usual $20.


Neewer Ring Light Kit | $63 | Amazon | Promo code NWRING919

Update: The promo code is dead, but you can still snag the light for $70 when you clip the $20 off coupon.

Time is a flat circle, and so is the most flattering light source known to man. Today, you can brighten up your day and your face with a Neewer Ring Light Kit, down to $63 on Amazon with promo code NWRING919, it’s lowest price ever.

Ring lights are beloved by Instagram influencers and beauty vloggers alike for their downright mystical ability to neutralize splotches and blemishes resulting in a soft, flawless glow. It would make a great gift for the aspiring YouTuber in your life, or just use it to look awesome in your next selfie. (I’m speaking from personal experience here; I was once photographed using an acquaintance’s ring light, and the resulting image became my Twitter profile picture for the next two years.)


Anker Premium 5-Port Charger With USB-C PD | $35 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch. It normally sells for $50, but Anker’s knocked that down to $35 today, no promo code required.

Today’s Best Home Deals

Go take a look at your international travel bucket list, because there’s a pretty good chance one of those destinations is included in Emirates’ big International Sale.

The best way to sort through the best deals is to select your departure airport from the dropdown menu on this page (13 U.S. airports are included), leave the destination blank, and hit search. You’ll then see a list of the best economy and business class fares, and you can also drill down on the available inventory with the search tools to only see fares for certain months, or in certain price ranges.

The cheapest flight we saw was from JFK to Milan for $469 roundtrip, but as you’d expect from Emirates, there are also lots of options to far-flung destinations in the middle east, Asia, and Africa as well.

These fares are available (while supplies last, obviously) until September 13, and most seem to be valid for select travel days between September and April. Personally, I suggest finding a cheap flight you want now, and figuring out the rest of your vacation details later.

If you’re putting away your sandals and water shoes for the winter, these Sterlite storage boxes are perfectly sized for the task, or for any number of other organizational needs.

This pack of 12 boxes is temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it from Amazon for an all-time low $18, and they’ll ship them to you when they get more. Bonus, at the end of the winter, you can take out your sandals, and replace them with gloves and scarves.


OxyLED T-04 Motion Activated Light | $14 | Amazon | Promo code DRWDQY94

Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T-02 motion-sensing light strips over the years, but if you’ve found them to be to annoying to charge, the new T-04 is an easier to use option.

Like the T-02, the T-04 can attach to basically any surface via the included adhesive strips, and will automatically light up when it detects motion in the dark. The main difference is the battery: rather than charging AAAs or plugging in a microUSB cable, the T-04's battery pack is fully detachable, and plugs directly into any USB charging port. I have a couple of these set up around my apartment, and they work extremely well. Get one today for just $14 with promo code DRWDQY94.


Indoor Plants Gold Box | Amazon

Bring a ton of natural beautify into your home with today’s Gold Box. Choose from over a dozen house plans, with prices starting at just $16. Choose from a fancy succulent-like plants,a fiddle-leaf fig, a palm tree, and more.

For the rest of the deals, head to Amazon’s main page, not THE Amazon, and remember, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


SimpliSafe 7-Piece Home Security System | $170 | Woot
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Have you been on the market for a home security system, but didn’t want to shell out a ton of money for a high-tech system or pay hefty monthly fees? We’ve got you covered. Right now you can get the SimpliSafe 7-Piece Home Security System for about 43% off, priced at $170 on Woot.

The SimpliSafe system comes with a base station, a keypad, three entry sensors, two motion sensors, a yard sign, and two window stickers. It is easy enough to set up on your own and does not come with a pesky monthly contract like some home security systems. There is a backup battery that will kick in during power outages for up to 24 hours of extra battery life. The SimpliSafe system was designed to detect the specific heat signatures of humans, so you won’t get alerts if there’s a dog on the monitor. Though, who wouldn’t want to know if there is a dog at their door?

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Cole Haan Women’s Shoes, Men’s Shoes, Women’s Coats, Men’s Accessories, Women’sHandbags & Accessories Flash Sales | Nordstrom Rack
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

Cole Haan is known for making quality handbags, shoes, clothes — you name it. And today, you can fill your closet with all of the above at clearance-level cost. Nordstrom Rack is having a major flash sale on everything Cole Haan, from women’s shoes and men’s shoes, to women’s coats, to men’s and women’s accessories. Some our our favorite ZERØGRANDS are included in the sale, if you hurry.


The Kawartha Outdoor Cooler Bag | $36 | Kawartha | Promo code KINJADB50

Most coolers are designed to be carried maybe 10 minutes away from the trunk of your car, but Kawartha’s Cooler Bag is just what you need to carry some beers and snacks deep into the woods on your next hike.

The Cooler Bag is actually a dry bag with a removable, insulated insert that can hold ice and food. Our resident outdoorsman Zach has been using it for awhile, and has nothing but good things to say:

During my first test of this bag, I managed to pack in 18 already cold beers and a few frozen steaks, with ice filling in any remaining space. Packing this much does mean some of your goods won’t fit inside the cooler insert (a 12-pack alone easily will), but if you can still close the outer bag using the roll top, everything still stays pretty cold. So after a 7 hour drive to the trailhead, it was another 1.5 mile hike into camp. Though there’s no convenient way to take that much weight into a secluded site, along with your own gear, this bag makes it bearable. Like a duffel, you can sling it over your shoulder, or carry it by the side handle, which is helpful in distributing the burden of your beer across different muscle groups.

For a limited time, you can use promo code KINJADB50 to get the whole setup for just $36 ($24 + $12 shipping, I know, I know), which would be a decent price for a good dry bag by itself, let alone one that can keep your drinks cold for hours.


Old Spice Spiffy Sculpting Pomade | $5 | Amazon | Clip the 30% off coupon

Hair gel is canceled. Do yourself a favor and invest in pomade, if you haven’t already. Your hair will thank you when you buy a tub of Old Spice Spiffy Sculpting Pomade for $5. You can get it for cheap on Amazon when you clip the 30% off coupon.

For a limited time, you can get three pairs of the company’s micro modal boxer briefs for $28, down from the usual $33. If you aren’t familiar with micro modal, it’s the material that most of those premium underwear brands charging $20+ a pair on Instagram use, and is one of the softest fabrics out there.

A handful of other David Archy products are on sale today as well:

Deals You May Have Missed

Anker Soundcore Life Q20 Noise Canceling Bluetooth Headphones | $48 | Amazon | Clip the 20% coupon on the page
Photo: Amazon

Anker’s recently launched Soundcore Life Q20 headphones boast Hi-Res Audio certification, four noise cancelation microphones, Bluetooth 5.0, and excellent battery life. In our humble opinion, they’re the best headphones $60 will buy you, but for a limited time, you can get them even cheaper.

This week on Amazon, Q20s are marked down to $48, if you clip the 20% coupon on the page. If you ever fly, take public transit, or just work in an office that’s a little too noisy, noise canceling headphones are a life changing purchase. These might not sound quite as good or block as much noise as $300 options from Sony or Bose, but they perform better than any other sub-$100 ANC headphones we’ve tried.


Apple MacBook Air (2019) 128GB | $900 | Amazon
Apple MacBook Air (2019) 256GB | $1,100 | Amazon
Photo: Gizmodo

Apple’s new MacBook Air may be boring, but it’s a thin little workhorse with a bigger, better screen and a faster processor than the 12" MacBook, which might just hit your laptop Goldilocks zone. And unlike the MacBook Pro, it comes with TouchID (yay!) without the obnoxious Touch Bar (yay!).

If the price was scaring you away, Amazon is taking $200 off the brand new (released in July) 2019 model, which added a True Tone display, faster SSD performance, and a revamped keyboard that should prove more reliable. The deal’s available for both the 128GB and 256GB configurations, and in all three colors. For whatever it’s worth, my wife got one of the 2018 models when it first came out, and she loves it.


2-Pack Nylon-Braided 90 Degree Lightning Cables | $8 | Amazon | Promo code 43CGAOBX

Given how many Lightning cables seem to wear out at the necks, it’s surprising that 90 degree cables aren’t more of a thing. You can grab two nylon braided cables for $8 from Aukey today with promo code 43CGAOBX, which would be a terrific price for one nylon-braided Lightning cable, let alone two of them.


Anker SoundBuds Slim+ Bluetooth Headphones | $24 | Amazon | Promo code soundcore

Our readers voted Anker’s SoundBuds Slims as their favorite affordable Bluetooth headphones, but we may need a recount, as Anker recently released the upgraded SoundBuds Slim+, on sale for just $24 today with promo code soundcore.

The biggest change from the original model is the inclusion of AptX encoding, which should improve sound quality with compatible devices. Anker also claims that waterproofing has been improved, though they’re both still rated as IPX5, so any change on that front is likely modest. One thing that hasn’t changed: the seven hour battery, which is excellent for earbuds of this size.


Soundcore Wakey Bluetooth Speaker | $80 | Amazon | Promo code soundcore

Anker makes a ton of excellent products, and the Soundcore Wakey is a few of those mushed together. $80 for an FM radio would seem like a lot, but this model also acts as a Qi wireless charger, a dual-port USB charger, a Bluetooth speaker, and a white noise machine—that’s a lot of utility in a beautifully designed package.

Right now, you can get the Wakey for $20 off its usual price with promo code soundcore.


RAVPower Portable Charger 20000mAh PD 3.0 Power Bank | $35 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon and use code KINJACBE
Photo: Amazon

I thought I’d seen it all in the USB battery pack space, but RAVPower went and made something completely new: a battery pack that you can recharge with literally any phone charger you have lying around. Yes, it features USB-C, microUSB, and even Lightning inputs.

Advertisement

The 18W USB-C PD input will be by far the fastest recharge option, but it’s nice to know that any cord you have lying around will be capable of juicing up the battery pack overnight.

That USB-C port is also an 18W output port, which can charge an iPhone from 0% to 50% in 30 minutes with the right cable. You also get two standard USB outputs, one of which features Quick Charge 3.0, all tied to a 20,000mAh battery. The lowkey nicest feature though might be the screen that displays your remaining battery life as an actual percentage, rather than an array of like, three or four dots.

The battery is priced at $50, which isn’t out of line for a USB-C PD battery of this size, but if you clip the $5 coupon and use promo code KINJACBE at checkout, you can get it for just $35.


Twelve South Airfly | $35 | Amazon
Image: Amazon

Your headphones are wireless now. Great! The problem is that gym equipment, seat back entertainment screens, and your Nintendo Switch are not. That’s where this gadget comes in.

Advertisement

Twelve South’s AirFly connects to your AirPods (or any wireless headphones), then plugs into the 3.5mm jack you’re trying to listen to, transmitting low latency audio without the use of wires. Normally $40, it’s on sale today for $35. It’s not the only device out there that does this, and even on sale, it’s not the cheapest, but Twelve South is known for high quality, intuitive products and great support.


The Apple Pencil is one of the best styli out there for artists, but if you just want to jot down notes on your iPad, the Logitech Crayon is more than good enough, at a lower price.

Advertisement

Normally $70, Amazon’s got it marked down to an all-time low $50 today. Just note that it’s only compatible with the 6th gen iPad (currently on sale for $250), the new iPad Air, and the new iPad Mini; it won’t work with any iPad Pro or older iPad models.


Anker Portable Power Strip | $18 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

Need some extra outlets on your desk, by your nightstand, or at the airport? Anker’s newest and smallest power strip includes two AC outlets and two USB charging ports, and it’s down to $18 on Amazon this week, from the usual $24.

Advertisement

One nice touch: The AC plug is flat, so you can easily stick this behind a couch or desk where a regular power strip’s plug might not easily fit.


Furhaven Pet Dog Bed | $8 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

If your dog is your baby, please treat them to a little bit of luxury. Right now, this medium Furhaven Pet Dog Bed (in Java Brown) is only $8 on Amazon. All of the other colors are 3x that price, so this is a current steal.

Advertisement

The bed is a medium size, meaning it measures to 30" x 20" x 3". It is easy to clean, evenly distributes your pet’s weight, and is meant for dogs that love to cuddle in soft fabric.


Lodge 10" Cast Iron Skillet + $5 Gift Card | $15 | Walmart

The humble and inexpensive cast iron skillet is one of most important pieces of cooking gear you can own, and Lodge’s highly-rated 10” model is down to $15 at Walmart. If you don’t own one, you shouldn’t hesitate.
