Anker makes basically all of your favorite charging gear, and a bunch of it is on sale in today’s Amazon Gold Box.

Advertisement

If you read Kinja Deals, you know that Anker runs its fair share of sales. But these discounts are uncommonly good, befitting their Gold Box status. For starters, you can pick up a pair of Quick Charge 3.0 chargers: One for your car, and one for the wall.

If you don’t need Quick Charge capabilities, the PowerPort 4 is a fantastic travel charger, stuffing four high-speed ports into a device that plugs directly into the wall.

And since you can never have enough charging cables, grab some kevlar-reinforced Anker PowerLine Lightning and microUSB cables.

Just remember that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

Bonus: While there aren’t any battery packs in the Gold Box, you can save 15% on the just-released PowerCore II 10000 with promo code SLIMQUIK. This battery uses a proprietary Anker chipset to deliver the fastest possible charge to all devices from a single port, including Quick Charge 3.0-compatible phones.

The TiVo for cord cutters comes with lifetime service and a 1TB hard drive, and Amazon’s offering the first deal we’ve ever seen on it today.

The original Roamio OTA sold for $50 with a 500GB hard drive, but you had to pay $15 per month for the TiVo service. The new model though comes with 1TB of space, and usually retails for $350-$400 upfront, with lifetime service. Assuming you’ll use it for more than a couple years, that’s a good deal on its face, but Amazon’s knocking it down to just $308 right now, while supplies last.

Phone cameras will never have true interchangeable lenses, but you can still take fisheye, wide angle, and macro photos with this 3-in-1 clip-on lens kit from Anker. Be sure to check out the sample photos uploaded by customers to get an idea of what this kit is capable of.

While mesh routers have broken through in 2016, the Wirecutter-recommended TP-Link Archer C7 though is one of the best “traditional” routers you can get, and it’ll only cost you $76 today after you clip the $10 on-screen coupon.

If you live in a bigger place, or just require faster throughput speeds, the ultra-powerful Archer C2300 also has a $20 coupon available.

Audioengine makes some of the best speakers on the market, and both their A2+ and their larger, louder A5+ models have rare discounts on Amazon today.

Advertisement

The A2+ checks in at $199 for a pair, which is about $50 less than usual, while the A5+ are priced at $319, or $80 off. These would work great as home theater speakers, but the included DAC also lets you run them directly from your computer’s USB port as well.

VPNs are in the news these days, and with good reason. So if you’re curious to sign up and start protecting your browsing history and personal data (or, you know, getting around websites’ geoblocks), NordVPN charges less per month than a typical trip to Starbucks.

Advertisement

NordVPN has long been one of the most popular and reliable VPN providers out there, and if you sign up for a one-year membership, promo code VIP70 will drop your annual price from $69 to $48. If you’re sure you want to commit, use this link instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Samsung’s Chromebook Plus is a bit expensive by Chromebook standards, but it’s worth every penny. It debuted only a few months ago at $450, but you can already get it for an all-time low $379 today on Amazon.

Advertisement

So what makes this thing so special? Its 2400 x 1600 touchscreen display jumps off the page, as do its included stylus and ability to fold into a tablet. But the headlining feature here is full Google Play support, meaning you can download and run over a million Android apps to expand the laptop’s capabilities. Now some of those will work better than others, and lag can be a problem with certain apps, but the fact is that Chrome OS isn’t just a browser window anymore. It can even run Photoshop!

You don’t need to pay Apple $160 to enjoy truly wireless earbuds: These SoundPEATS look nearly identical to the AXGIO earbuds that I tried out last year, but with updated Bluetooth tech (4.2 vs. 4.1) and a lower price tag. They’re not as sleek as some other truly wireless headphones on the market like AirPods or the Bragi Dash, but you can’t beat that price.

If you want to cut the cord, but can’t abide earbuds, Sony’s popular on-ear MDRXB650BTs are on sale for $78 right now, within $10 of the all-time low we saw around Black Friday. These include NFC pairing, a built-in microphone, and 30 hours of battery life, and you even get your choice of three different colors.

SONOS discounts only come around once in a blue moon, but for a limited time, you can save $50 off the purchase of two SONOS PLAY:1s, and $100 off the SONOS SUB, both of which offer stellar sound and dead-simple setup and operation.

Amazon’s Father’s Day device deals just went live, including $20 discounts on the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Voyage, extra savings on various Kindle bundles, and less common deals on Amazon’s Echo line of smart speakers. Alexa does know some great dad jokes, so that part makes sense.

There are too many deals to list here, but head over to this post to see them all.

Aukey’s tiny USB car charger is a reader favorite, but this iClever model is the same size and puts out the same 4.8A of power over two ports, and it’s only $7 today. Plus, unlike the plastic Aukey, this one’s made of aluminum, which is supposedly better for heat dissipation, but it definitely looks cooler.

Amazon’s new Dash Wand has Alexa built right in, and lets you order groceries and other household goods just by scanning a barcode or using your voice. The best part though? It’s basically free.

Advertisement

The Dash Wand will set you back $20 upfront (not bad considering it’s a full-featured Alexa voice assistant), but once you register it, you’ll get a $20 credit in your Amazon account automatically. It’s basically the same value proposition behind Amazon’s $5 dash buttons, but the Wand seems infinitely more useful and flexible.

Plus, if you live in a city with Amazon Prime Fresh, buying the wand will get you a 90 day trial membership, so you can fully immerse yourself in Amazon’s lazy vision of the future.

Bella Vino Wine Rack, $7 with code CPWTNRDM

Let’s drop the pretense and be honest for a second; drinking wine is great, but half the fun is showing off how many bottles you own. This six-bottle rack is listed at $24 on Amazon right now, but promo code CPWTNRDM will uncork a deal and bring it all the way down to $7. That $17 you saved can buy you another bottle or six.

Update: Sold out, sorry. I’d recommend checking out the equivalent RTIC cooler though, which won our reader vote.

Advertisement

I know we normally dismiss YETI products as overpriced, but at least for today, their Hopper 40 soft cooler is down to just $185, the first time we’ve ever seen it below $200. This thing can hold 40 pounds of ice or up to 36 cans, and will keep ice frozen for days on end.

Advertisement

This is a Gold Box deal though, so it’ll be gone before the ice melts. Even if you don’t need one for yourself, it would make a tremendous Father’s Day gift.

You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Today only as part of a Gold Box deal, Amazon’s discounting the Dremel 3000 to an all-time low $45 (from about $65-$70).

The Dremel 3000 features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM, and includes 28 accessories to get you started with projects all around the house. Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.

As part of the same Gold Box deal, you can also score a 70 piece accessory kit and carrying case for $30, an all-time low.

While they don’t have the brand recognition of Nest’s learning Thermostat, Ecobee’s smart thermostats one-up their popular competitor by pairing with wireless remote sensors that you can place elsewhere in your house, giving them a more accurate picture of your home’s overall temperature. Plus, they work with Siri and Alexa, and the new Ecobee4 actually has Alexa built-in, meaning it’s basically an extra Echo Dot on your wall.

For a limited time, Home Depot’s throwing in two free remote sensors with the purchase of the new Ecobee4 or Ecobee3 Lite. That’s roughly an $80 value, making this is one of the best Ecobee deals we’ve ever seen, if you’re in the market.

If you enjoy eating at Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, Maggiano’s, or On The Border, this discounted Brinker gift card is basically a free entree.

Only luddites use tape measures anymore. This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings of up to 164', and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry.

How did I not know this existed before? Snickers makes a special 1-pound candy bar that’s designed for slicing and sharing, but we won’t tell anyone if you eat the entire thing yourself. Save $2 by clipping the coupon on the page. Amazon even ships it with reusable cool-packs to prevent melting.

Everyone should own a decent drill, and this Black & Decker offers a ton of value for just $35.

That gets you a 20V drill, a battery, and a charger. There are definitely more powerful drills out there, but I’ve owned a very similar model for years, and it’s been perfectly adequate for basic tasks around the house. Plus, I’m not sure I’ve ever had to charge the thing.

Once, when I was young and naive, I paid a dealership like $75 to clean my foggy headlights. Little did I know, this Sylvania headlight restoration kit does the same job for tiny fraction of the price. Just note that you’ll need to clip the 20% coupon on the product page to see the discount at checkout.

I freely admit that not everybody needs a miter saw. In fact, most people probably shouldn’t own one. But if you’re in the market, Amazon’s top seller is marked down to $99 today, within a few bucks of an all-time low. In addition to the #1 seller designation, the Hitachi C10FCE2 also carries a 4.5 star review average from nearly 1,500 customers, so there’s no need to measure twice here.

You know those motion-sensing light switches that companies install in office buildings to squeeze out every possible penny of profit save energy and protect Mother Earth? Now you can put them in your own home for just $13 each with code YCQ2PM4N. If anyone in your house is chronically incapable of turning out the lights, this deal’s for you.

OxyLED’s T-02 Minis are, you guessed it, the smallest version of the company’s popular line of motion-sensing stick-anywhere lights. They’re great for cabinets and small closets, and you can get two for $12 with promo code KINJA2MI today.

Note: These don’t include built-in batteries, so you’ll need two AAAs. Luckily, Amazon’s rechargeable ones are still on sale.

If you’re ready to take the plunge into LED lighting, this 6-pack of bulbs from TCP is down to just $10 on Amazon right now in both daylight and soft white temperatures. They aren’t dimmable, so you won’t want to put them in certain fixtures, but they’re great bulk packs for the price.

Once you’ve got them, check to see if your local utility company offers rebates for purchasing LEDs. If so, it’s possible these could pay for themselves even quicker than they would otherwise.

Yi, the manufacturer of your favorite budget action cam, also makes a well-reviewed dash cam, and you can mount it to your windshield for an all-time low $44 today with promo code YIFORDAD. 1080/60 recording (which gives you twice as many frames to get a clear view of a license plate) and Wi-Fi are both basically unheard of at this price point.

Individual Philips Hue light bulbs have been frustratingly resistant to discounts over the years, so if you have a chance to save 10% on the latest model, you should probably swallow your pride and pull the trigger.

This third generation bulb features richer blues and greens than previous models, and this is the first time Amazon’s discounted it below the usual $50. The deal is available on both the Frustration Free and standard packaging options, so if one sells out, be sure to try the other.
