Today’s Best Tech Deals

Luminoodle HDTV Bias Light | $8-$19 | Woot | Also on sale at Amazon for slightly more
Photo: Power Practical

HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but with 6500K true white LEDs that promise to minimize eye strain and look professional, Luminoodle is one of the most polished option out there.

If you aren’t familiar with bias lights, they ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.

Today only at Woot, you can save on all available length and color options lengths (the XL is meant for 41"-59" TVs, so that’s probably the one you want), and they’re also on sale at Amazon for a few bucks more, if Woot sells out, or if you just want them faster.


24-Pack Anker Alkaline AAA Batteries | $6 | Amazon | Clip the 35% coupon
24-Pack Anker Alkaline AA Batteries | $8 | Amazon | Clip the 23% coupon

Anker makes non-rechargeable alkaline batteries now, which is deeply weird for a company that made its name with rechargeable USB battery packs.

But...24 AAAs for $6 or 24 AAs for $8 are both terrific deals. Just be sure to clip the coupon (35% for the former, 23% for the latter) on the product page to get the discount, which stacks on top of the already-discounted prices.


Neewer Ring Light Kit | $80 | Amazon | Clip the $20 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 $80 on Amazon when you clip the $20 coupon.

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.)


Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum | $14 | Amazon | Clip the $2 coupon and use code ROAVBB44

Just when you thought you had car chargers pegged, Anker went out and made the smartest one you’ve ever seen.

Similar to the Nonda Zus, the Roav by Anker SmartCharge Spectrum connects to your phone over Bluetooth while you drive. When you turn the car off and the Bluetooth connection breaks, the Roav app will mark down your parking location on a map, so you can find your way back.

Perhaps more usefully, every time you start your car, the SmartCharge will also log the health of your car battery, so you can track its charge over time from your phone, and get a replacement ready before you get stranded in your office parking garage on a Friday evening.

Those features alone (along with Quick Charge 3.0 charging) would make this worth $14 (with promo code ROAVBB44 and the $2 coupon), but it does have one last trick up its sleeve: A customizable accent light. The LED ring around the USB ports can display 16,000 different colors, and you can choose your favorite from the app to make it perfectly match (or stand out from) your car’s own dashboard lighting.


LITOM Waterproof Outdoor Solar Motion Sensor Lights | $16 | Amazon | Promo code VPZOWS6G
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Sadly, the summer is fading away fast. And while we’re excited to enjoy some cooler temps, that also means the sun is going to leave us earlier every day. If you need some extra light outside of your home, for night-time hangouts or added security, you’re in luck. You can get a 4-pack of LITOM Waterproof Outdoor Solar Motion Sensor Lights for $16 when you use promo code VPZOWS6G.


Marshall Kilburn II Portable Bluetooth Speaker | $200 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Today’s Gold Box is marking down Marshall Kilburn II Portable Bluetooth Speaker to a low $200. While that may still seem like a lot, this speaker normally sells for $100 more and this is the first discount we’ve seen on this particular color.

As with all Marshall Bluetooth speakers, these echo the design of those classic amplifiers. They also look and sound fantastic for a portable speaker.

This model offers 20+ hours of music and is equipped with Bluetooth 5. 0 apt technology for wireless music play. If you’re low on juice, it has a quick-charge option that gives you two more hours of playtime.

Just remember, this is a Gold Box. Which means this $100 discount will only last until the end of the day or until sold out.


Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens | $199 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you wanted to try your hand at some super-wide angle photography, the is down to just $200 today. This is $80 off its normal price.

Advertisement

This Canon EF-S lens opens up to a respectable f/4.5, so it’s not the best during low light. It’ll thrive, however, in extreme sports shots, like in skate parks and could make some pretty cool environmental portraits, just as long as your subject is right at the center of your frame.


Today’s Best Home Deals

Nature’s Miracle Stain and Odor Remover Pour, 16 Oz. | $1 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

We love our pets, but they can be messy as hell. Accidents happen. Don’t freak out, because you can get that nasty pee stain out of your couch and the lingering smell will kick it too. You just need a bottle of Nature’s Miracle Stain and Odor Remover Pour. The enzymatic formula is tough on a variety of odors and strains, from urine, feces, drool, and more.

Right now, the 16 oz. is only $1 on Amazon, though be warned, it is expected to ship in one to three weeks. When you add this stain and odor remover to your shopping cart, $1.31 will automatically be taken off your total, giving you to glorious $1 price tag.


40-Pack Cheetos 1 oz. Bags | $9 | Amazon | Clip the $4 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The problem with Cheetos is that I always eat all of the Cheetos. Give me a full bag of Cheetos, and I will empty it. A family sized bag? Empty. A bathtub full of Cheetos? I will eat them until I perish in a state of cheddar powder ecstasy.

Advertisement

That’s why this 40-pack of single serve, 1 ounce bags is so appealing. Now, I can eat a normal amount of Cheetos in each sitting, assuming I can stop myself from grabbing a second bag. Get them for $9 by using Subscribe & Save and clipping the $4 coupon.


1st Generation Echo Show | $50 | Woot
Photo: Amazon

Its 7" screen isn’t as big as the new model, and it’s not the most attractive gadget ever designed, but the original Echo Show is still a great smart home hub, and it’s particularly tempting at just $50.

This deal is only available today from Woot, and is currently out of stock on Amazon.


WORKPRO Rotary Tool Accessories Kit | $21 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The Dremel you bought that one time probably came with a handful of attachments and accessories, but you can add 295 more of them to your toolbox for just $21 today. This accessory kit includes sanders, polishers, cutters, and everything else you need for most rotary tool tasks, all in a nice carrying case.


Keurig Coffee Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Look, I know Keurig coffee isn’t the best coffee. Far from it. But for many coffee drinkers of the world, convenience is a more important consideration than flavor, which is why Keurigs remain so damn popular.

If you’re a Keurig user yourself, don’t be shamed out of missing this one-day Gold Box deal on Amazon, which features deals on Laughing Man and Newman’s Own coffee pods, in addition to Keurig-curated (Kuerated??) variety packs.

Photo: Amazon

Trtl Travel Pillow | $18 | Amazon
Trtl Travel Pillow Plus | $40 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon

It might look like something Rey would wear while scouring for spare parts on Jakku, but this neck wrap is actually a travel pillow, and a great one at that.

The Trtl pillow uses a hidden rib system to support your neck as you doze off in your tiny coach airline seat. Just wrap Trtl around your neck, placing the ribs on whichever side you want to lay your head (including directly under your chin) pop on some noise-cancelling headphones, and try your darnedest to get some shut-eye. It looks ridiculous, sure, but I promise you that nobody on your flight cares. Honest!

In case it wasn’t obvious, the big advantage of this design is size; Trtl weighs less than 1/3 of a pound, can attach to your luggage, and is far less bulky than a memory foam pillow. Today only in Amazon’s Gold Box, you can grab the pillow for just $18, down from $30.

The Gold Box sale also includes the Cadillac of travel pillows, the Trtl Plus, which is fully adjustable, and includes extra padding.

Got kids? The sale also includes several discounted Trtl Juniors.

Don’t have a young kid? Send this deal to your friends that do; trust me.


Haswell Survival Knife

Controversial opinion: Knives are the coolest tool. And while all of my friends tell me that I already own too many, I made room for the Haswell Survival Knife in my collection.

Make your own all-natural fire starter, just add a blunt object.

Currently available for $75 on Indiegogo, this 9.5" knife (with a 4.5" blade) is not only one of the most handsome knives I’ve ever seen, but also checks off a lot of what one should look for in a survival knife.

Advertisement

It’s a fixed blade knife, which is big for durability, and it doesn’t have saw teeth on the blunt-edge, which can actually make a blade weaker.

The Haswell is made from “1095 high-carbon steel,” a walnut handle and brass rivets. That’s it; no weird compass attachments or bottle-openers.

It’s just a really well-made knife with a wedge-shaped edge and comfortable handle. Not for nothing, but this particular blade is perfect to start a collection with, or as a gift for someone who has everything... including an extensive knife collection.

Advertisement

The Haswell Survival Knife is available in a few different permutations, including different sheath and bundled with other outdoor gear starting at $75. Shipments are expected before the holiday season, right in time to test your mettle in snowy outdoor weather. Coalatree has been making some of our favorite outdoor apparel for years, so this knife seems to portend an expanded product line in the future.

15% Off Select Styles | Felix Gray | Promo code MUSTHAVE
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

You’re probably not going to stop staring at screens anytime soon, so you might as well get some blue light-blocking glasses already. Give your strained eyes some relief and shop Felix Gray’s Surprise Sale. The blue light-filtering brand is taking 15% off a selection of their stylish frames, including their regular optical line, color-enhancing sunglasses, and sleep glasses, with promo code MUSTHAVE. (Side note: I tried the sleep glasses and felt drowsy AF.) This blink-and-you’ll-miss-it sale only lasts through next Thursday, though, so be sure to shop sooner rather than later.


Taylor Stitch Camp Shorts | $61 | Huckberry
Photo: Huckberry

Summer camp season is over, but that just means that you can buy Taylor Stitch’s popular Camp Shorts on sale, and enjoy them next year. Combining the cotton of everyday around-town shorts with the ripstop fabric of technical shorts, they’re built to take a little bit of a beating outdoors, while still looking good enough to wear to a bar after a long hike.

They normally cost $88 per pair, but Huckberry’s blowing them out for $61, while supplies last.


Separatec Underwear Sale | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

I could dance around what makes this underwear unique, but it’s easier to just say it: It has a separate compartment for your penis to keep it away from your balls. It sounds a little ridiculous, but it can certainly keep you out of some, uh, sticky situations.

Several styles and fabric options are on sale now for about 15% off their normal prices. I have several pairs of the bamboo rayons ($25 for three, down from $30), which are great for working out, but I bet those micro modals ($28, down from $33) are soft.


Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

It is that dreaded time of year. Mosquitoes are out to ruin your life. If you’ve got that sweet blood that they seem to love so much, you’re going to want to grab a Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller while it is on sale. You can keep it outside on your deck or patio for 15 feet of protection, or bring it with you on a camping trip. Three colors are about $6 off right now.
