If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, stop what you’re doing and check out this Samsung sound bar, marked down to an all-time low $198. With a wireless subwoofer and seamless HDMI audio, it’ll be a massive aural upgrade for your home theater.
We’ve posted travel router deals before, but this is one of the smallest and least expensive we’ve seen to date.
If you aren’t familiar, this little box can take an ethernet connection and turn it into a private wireless network that multiple people can enjoy. You can also use it in bridge mode to re-broadcast an unsecured Wi-Fi signal with a password, and even plug in a flash drive and connect your mobile devices wirelessly to swap files. That really comes in handy if you’re on vacation, and your phone is running out of space to store photos.
The downside of a router this small is that it doesn’t have a built-in battery like some others we’ve seen, so you’ll either have to plug it into the wall or a USB battery pack with a microUSB cable.
Your next battery pack should have USB-C, and this massive 30,000 mAh pack from Aukey obliges you with a USB-C input/output port, two standard USB ports (one of which includes Quick Charge 3.0), and an extra microUSB input in case you misplace your USB-C cable.
It doesn’t have USB-C Power Delivery (unsurprising at this price), so it won’t charge a MacBook or Switch at full speed, but its 5V/3A output is still faster than standard USB.
There are lots of aluminum laptop stands out there, but this is the only one I’ve seen that can fold completely flat to fit in a backpack, and prop up your laptop at two different angles. Plus, at $23 (with code N4KT9PZS), its also cheaper than most alternatives. Win-win.
