Today’s Best Tech Deals

Private Internet Access Old Price Sale | Private Internet Access

Back in March, Private Internet Access (our readers’ favorite VPN service) raised its prices for the first time ever. And while our readers can still get an exclusive 3-years for $99 plan, they just lowered their other plans back to their old prices for a limited time.

Advertisement

The reason this is a big deal is that you can renew your membership as many times as you want at whatever price you originally paid. Once the prices go back to normal, you’ll still be locked into the lower rate.

Here are the new (old) promotional prices, along with what you’d normally pay:

  • 1 month: $6.95 (down from $9.99)
  • 1 year: $39.95 (up from $71.88)

Clearly, the annual plan is the sweet spot here if you don’t want to commit to the three-year plan, but $6.95/month for 10 simultaneous connections, clients for just about every conceivable device, and servers in 32 countries (foreign Netflix, anyone?). We aren’t sure when the prices will go back up, so you probably want to lock in your account ASAP.

Anker PowerCore 10000 PD | $30 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERPD335
Advertisement

Most USB-C Power Delivery battery packs we’ve seen so far have been designed to keep things like laptops charged on long flights. Anker’s newest, on the other hand, is built with portability in mind.

The new PowerCore 10000 PD is a 10,000mAh battery pack with an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port. That’s not as powerful as the standard 30W port, or the increasingly common 45W ports, but it’s fast enough to charge an iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes with a compatible cable, and should be enough to at least keep your Nintendo Switch or a small laptop at the same charge level while you use it, even if it doesn’t actually charge them all that quickly.

Advertisement

For a limited time, you can add it to your bag (complete with a USB-C cable) for $30 with promo code ANKERPD335, down from the usual $46.

myCharge Wireless Charger Portable Charger Power Bank | $52 | Amazon | Clip the $5 coupon
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

You probably think you’ve seen everything there is to see in the USB battery pack market by now. But not so fast, my friends.

This 10,000mAh battery pack from myCharge doubles as a Qi charging pad whether it’s plugged in or not, which is a pretty rare feature on its own. That means you can use it to top off your phone on the go, even if you forgot to bring a cable.

Advertisement

But what makes it truly unique is the fact that it can also recharge itself wirelessly, and pass that charge through to your phone. You just set it face up on a Qi charging pad to recharge the battery, then set your phone on top of the battery pack to charge it wirelessly. Chargeception, y’all. Get it for an all-time low $52 by clipping the $5 coupon.

USB C Wall Charger, RAVPower 61W PD 3.0 | $40 | Amazon | Promo code KINJAPQC
Photo: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

RAVPower, perhaps more than any other company, has been pushing the envelope on small, powerful USB-C chargers powered by next generation GaN components, rather than silicon.

Advertisement

Their latest and greatest is a 61W wall charger that’s only a fraction of the size of Apple’s 61W 13" MacBook Pro charger, and cheaper too. We’ve tried it over on The Inventory, and it really does charge things as quickly as Apple’s charger. Get it for $40 today with promo code KINJAPQC, and enjoy that extra space in your bag.

Anker just keeps on iterating on its true wireless earbuds, and now, you can get the new Soundcore Liberty Neos for an all-time low $40, down from the usual $50.

Advertisement

As Anker’s newest budget true wireless buds, there aren’t too many bells and whistles here, save for the ability for both earbuds to operate independently (many true wireless earbuds have one bud pair to the other, rather than both pairing to your phone), and Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a rock solid connection from a longer distance.

The earbuds should play on for 3.5 hours on a charge, and the charging case includes 12 hours worth of battery life too for longer sessions. That’s not as much as some of Anker’s more expensive models, or higher-end options like Apple’s AirPods, but it’s honestly enough for most situations.

It’s...beautiful.

You can start organizing them with this $18 storage case. It has 93 slots of varying shapes and sizes, so it will fit most battery types, and has a removable battery tester. Today’s price is a rare discount, and a few bucks less than the usual $20.

Why pay for an electric scooter by the minute when you can just buy one outright for the best price ever? The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter can cruise at 15+ mph for over 18 miles, depending on conditions, and includes some nice quality-of-life features like a built-in headlight and taillight, and a regenerative braking system to extend your range.

At just $330 (the best price we’ve ever seen), it’s a better long term investment than the plague of electric scooters that befell our cities over the past year. Just don’t leave it in the middle of the damn sidewalk, please.

When it comes to measuring the temperature of food, ThermoWorks is the be-all, end-all brand you can trust. And while we’re used to seeing individual ThermoWorks products on sale from time to time, today’s 15% off sitewide sale is extremely rare.

If you want to do any electrical work around your house, you need to have a multimeter in your toolbox. This one’s only $9 today on Amazon, and boasts a 4.5 star rating from over 2,000 reviews. At that price, there’s no reason not to add it to your tool box. Hell, you should celebrate by adding some USB ports to your power receptacles, if you ask me.

Just please, be careful.

Are Cosmic Brownies the best brownies you can eat? Hell yeah. I mean, that is what you used to think when you looked in your lunch box and saw a pack when you were in the 2nd grade. If your parents only bought you snacks from Little Debbie, you know why these were a vital part of grade-school lunch. Relive your childhood and get six boxes (36 total) of Cosmic Brownies for $12. Shout out to all of the kids who first ate all of the candy pieces before the actual brownie.

Nothing says summer like sliding into a big, comfy, Instagram-ready Adirondack chair and enjoying the evening as the sun sets. Now, you can put them all over your patio or back yard for just $33 each, courtesy of Walmart. And if you want to enjoy them year-round, just add a fire pit.

Just note that to get free shipping, you’ll need to buy two of them to get over the $35 threshold, but you can also order online and pick one up in-store for free. They don’t come assembled, so they should fit just fine in the back of your car.

Just a quick reminder, this is a Gold Box deal, meaning it lasts for today only. Additionally, the 50% off discount only applies to your first KitNipBox, the next box will ship for full price.

Ecobee Switch+ Light Switch | $70 | Amazon

Ecobee’s Switch+ is probably the smartest light switch in existence. It can control your lights via an ambient light sensor, a motion sensor, and (of course) a button, but it also has Alexa built in. Note that I didn’t say it works with Alexa, I mean it actually has a microphone and speaker inside, meaning it’s basically a wall-mounted Echo Dot.

If you have an Ecobee thermostat, it’ll also work as a remote temperature sensor, because why wouldn’t it? It almost always sells for $80 these days, but right now, it’s down to an all-time low $60 on Amazon.

You can choose from six pre-set, color-changing functions: flash, strobe, pulse, dance, fade, and flicker. Depending on the party mood, you have your choice of 10 color options: red, green, blue, warm white, orange, yellow, light blue, pink, purple, and neon green.

First Alert Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector | $23 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

There’s nothing sexy or exciting about this combo smoke and carbon monoxide detector from First Alert. It doesn’t have voice instructions, it doesn’t integrate with your smart home, and it doesn’t look as cool as a Nest Protect. But with over 2,000 reviews, it’s one of the top selling detectors for a reason, and if you don’t have enough in your home, this is the best price of the year.

I’m mostly posting it because I bought two of them for like $6 more each last week, and I’m a little salty about it.

Rubermaid 12 Qt. Food Storage Container | $17 | Amazon
Photo: Amazon
Advertisement

Rubbermaid’s 12 quart food storage container is quite a bit larger than your typical kitchen container, but it’s great for storing things you want to keep a lot of like rice, or large items like fruits.

Advertisement

But what it’s perhaps most commonly used for is as a sous-vide cooking container. It can withstand temperatures up to 212 degrees, so it’s built for high water temperatures, and its large capacity means you’ll have room for plenty of steaks, veggies, or uh, Thanksgiving turkeys. You can even buy a third party hinged lid with a hole for your sous-vide circulator that will help retain heat.

Today’s price is within $1 of an all-time low, so spend your savings on food to cook (or store) in there.

Good gravy! That’s a great price on the OXO Good Grips 4-Cup Fat Separator. For just $10, this gadget will strain out any unwanted bits from your concoction, and its special stopper will prevent excess fat from entering the spout. Simply allow a few minutes for fat to rise to the top after pouring, then remove the stopper and pour out the good stuff. Finally, you can stock up on stock and gravy that’s at least a little on the healthier side.

Today’s Best Lifestyle Deals

Does your skin turn a nice tomato red after only five minutes of sun exposure? You better stock up on some sunscreen now before you’re assaulted by UV rays all summer long. Thankfully, a cult-favorite Japanese sunscreen is currently on sale.

You can get a regular bottle of Biore UV Watery Essence for $8, an extra large bottle (1.7x the normal size) for $15, or three of the regular sized bottles for $25. Those are some of the best prices we’ve seen, and while I realize the single bottle is a slightly better deal per ounce than the 3-pack or the extra large bottle, it does have a tendency to sell out, which is why we’re linking to all three options. The 50 SPF sunscreen is pretty literal to its name and is said to feel like water when applied to your skin.

Advertisement

Here’s what Shep McAllister had to say about it on The Inventory:

As far as sunscreen goes, the only thing I really knew about it was that I didn’t like it, and given the option, I would usually just opt to stay indoors until the UV index fell to around 3 or 4, or until someone invented a sunscreen pill, whichever came first.

That all changed when my wife introduced me to Biore Watery Essence sunscreen. It’s SPF 50 (the bare minimum for my needs, thank you very much), waterproof for 80 minutes, and feels like rubbing water on your skin. Cool to the touch, it rubs in effortlessly, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant smell or zincy stickiness of pretty much every other sunscreen I’ve used. About two minutes after putting it on, I’ve usually completely forgotten about it, which is a compliment of the highest order.

<Whispers> It’s okay to play Super Smash Bros. with any controller you want.

But that said, I understand the appeal of the old GameCube controller design, and you can snag an extra from PDP for just $19-$20 today, in several different Nintendo character-themed designs.

These controllers are wired (via USB, not Nintendo’s proprietary connector), but they come with swappable C-sticks, so you can remove the classic yellow nub, and replace it with a stick that’s the same size as the left stick for easier smash moves.

If there is one thing I’ve learned as a bidet convert, it’s that once you go bidet, every non-washing toilet experience is horrible.

Sonny—the first portable bidet—can alleviate the dread of taking the Browns to the Super Bowl in a public restroom.

Advertisement

Here’s how it works: Sonny holds up to 100ml of water in its tank, which allows you to spray your nether regions for 25-40 seconds, depending on the pressure setting. It generates that pressure with a rechargeable battery, which can last up to three weeks on a single charge, so you won’t have to charge this thing on your desk at work too often (unless you really want to).

Better still, it comes in a beautifully designed package, which means no strange looks when you take it to the loo, and no installation necessary, unlike an integrated bidet.

Advertisement

In addition to the feeling of cleanliness that comes with the use of a bidet, this tool will let you use less toilet paper, which is good for your budget, good for the environment, and good for your b-hole if you work for a penny-pinching boss who stocks the office bathroom with single ply.

Sonny is currently available for pre-order at Indiegogo for the introductory rate of $98 (slated to retail for $140) and will ship in December.

Audio Technica’s venerable ATH-M40x headphones (along with their larger M50x sibling) are our readers’ favorite wired headphones, and you can try on a pair for $79 right now, about $20 less than usual. It might be a little bit of a stretch to buy wired headphones in 2019, but between the M40x’s build quality, comfort, flat tuning response, and widely lauded sound quality, they’d make for great office headphones, where Bluetooth isn’t as big a deal.

While I’m sure the sound quality and noise cancellation abilities of these Mpow over-ear Bluetooth headphones don’t live up to the likes of Sony’s WH1000XM3s line or Bose’s QC35s, they annihilate the competition on price at just $39 (with promo code MPOW284A1).

These aren’t the only ~$40 noise canceling headphones we’ve seen around these parts, but this new 2019 model includes two noise canceling microphones for more accurate cancelation, a luxury at this price point.

Anker’s answer to RAVPower’s slim, behind-the-sofa USB-C charger is here, and it’s on sale for $26 on Amazon this week, down from the usual $35. It’s not as powerful as the RAVPower version (30W vs. 45W), but it’s a fair bit cheaper than the $40 RAVPower charges.

It might seem like a little thing, but putting the USB-C port on the bottom, rather than the front, makes it much easier to hide this charger behind furniture without risking breaking your USB-C cable.

Anker Roav Jump Starter Pro 1000A | $86 | Amazon | Clip the $20 coupon and use code ROAVRR44
Graphic: Shep McAllister
Advertisement

At $86 (after clipping the $20 coupon and using code ROAVRR44), Anker’s new Roav Jump Starter Pro isn’t the cheapest car jump starter we’ve seen, but its 1000A of peak output mean it can start pretty much any engine, up to 6L for a gas vehicle, or 4L for diesel. If you don’t buy one of these, you’ll probably be kicking yourself somewhere down the road (pun intended) when you’re stranded in your driveway with somewhere to be.

This being an Anker product, you’ll also find three high speed USB charging ports (one of which is a USB-C input and output), plus a flashlight that doubles as an SOS strobe, and even a DC output (cable not included) for powering 12V car accessories. Even if you already own a jump starter, these make amazing gifts. Believe me, your giftee will remember you the first time they’re able to start their car in the morning to get to work on time.

Razer’s popular BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 keyboard is one of the few high-end gaming keyboards out there without a number pad, and it’s cheaper than ever today on Amazon.

This keyboard has every accoutrement a gamer could possibly want, including 16.8 million color customizable backlighting, fully programmable keys, 10 key rollover, a magnetic wrist rest, and a two year warranty. You even get to choose from three different types of key switches, though you should obviously get the obnoxious, clicky ones. The BlackWidow line has long been a reader favorite, and this model is the cream of the crop, especially if you prefer a keyboard with a smaller footprint.
