Today’s Best Tech Deals

10.5" iPad Air | $469-$739 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The old 10.5" iPad Pro didn’t die; it was reborn as the reincarnation of the iPad Air. Offering iPad Pro-like performance in a form factor that some may prefer (if you’re loathe to give up TouchID, anyway), it’s Apple’s new Goldilocks iPad.

Amazon’s offering modest, but still best-ever, discounts on both the 64GB and 256GB capacities today, in both Wi-Fi and Cellular flavors.

And if you missed it last week, Apple’s official smart keyboard for this tablet is also half off.


Anker USB C Adapter, Classic 3-in-1 USB-C Hub | $21 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER8337
Anker USB C Adapter, 5-in-1 USB-C Hub | $17 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCLR3
Anker USB C Adapter, 4-in-1 USB-C Hub | $18 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCLR2 plus clippable coupon
Anker USB C Adapter, 5-in-1 USB-C Hub With Power Passthrough | $20 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCLR4

In the hopefully not-too-distant future, everything will just plug straight into USB-C, and all will be good with the world. Until then, if you own a laptop or tablet that only has USB-C ports, you’re probably going to need a hub to plug in old flash drives, hard drives, monitors, and other legacy peripherals.

This week on Amazon, you can save on your choice of four different Anker USB-C hubs for $21 or less. They all offer their own recipe of ports, but they features some combination of HDMI, USB 3.0, USB-C power passthrough, and SD card readers.


UGREEN USB-C to Lightning Cable | $10 | Amazon | Clip the 5% coupon and use code UGREENNL
Graphic: Shep McAllister

USB-C to Lightning cables are mandatory if you want to charge your iPhone at the fastest possible speed, and we’re finally starting to see some good deals on them.

This cable from UGREEN is nylon braided, and only $10 today after using promo code UGREENNL and clipping the 5% coupon on the page. Just plug it into any USB-C PD charger, and you can juice up an iPhone from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes.


Samsung Qi Charging Battery Pack (Silver or Pink) | $45 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If there’s one feature you should look for in your next power bank, it’s Qi charging and this Samsung model is just $45 right now. This is a rare discount on this 10,000mAh battery which enables you to leave the cable behind when you go out. It charges via USB-C and also outputs charge via a standard USB, too.

This current price is $2 off the lowest price we’ve ever seen. So pick one up before this discount goes away.


Soundcore Wakey Bluetooth Speaker | $80 | Amazon | Use code NEWSPK3300
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

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

Right now, you can use the promo code NEWSPK3300 to save $20 off this recently released speaker.


TaoTronics SoundLiberty 53 True Wireless Headphones | $33 | Amazon | Promo code KINJASWM
Photo: Amazon

It didn’t take long for true wireless earbuds to go from high-priced status symbols to affordable Amazon commodities, but here we are. TaoTronics’ SoundLiberty 53 headphones feature IPX7 waterproofing, five hours of battery life (and 40 if you include the charging case), and perhaps most impressively of all, Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable connection.

Advertisement

They’re a solid package for the usual $45, but for $33 (with promo code KINJASWM), it really might be time to cut the cord for good.

I’ll level with you...there’s nothing particularly special about these Sceptre TVs. They don’t have HDR, there’s no smart functionality to speak of, and they don’t have anything I’d describe as a memorable industrial design.

But for all the things that they aren’t, what they are are cheap screens that you can use to watch shows. Like, very cheap. Cheaper than Black Friday cheap (we actually posted them at the time, and they’re all $10-$20 less expensive now).

Just note that the 55" model is 4K, the 50" is 1080p, and the 32" is 720p.

FEANDREA Cat Trees Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Grab your owner and get their approval of what cat tree will suit their needs. You can choose from a variety of different FEANDREA Cat Trees and Condos thanks to this Amazon Gold Box. If you only have one furry owner, you might be able to get away with buying the smaller condo. If your house is overrun with cat rulers, give them the 58" cat tree as a peace offering.


Z Grills 2019 Wood Pellet Grill & Smoker | $549 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

If you want to get started with <Mark Zuckerberg voice> smokin’ some meats, an electric pellet grill is one of the easiest ways to get delicious, consistent results.

Traeger is the best-known brand in the space, but many of our readers have suggested looking into other brands, which often offer similar quality at a lower price. This model from Z Grills is marked down to $549 today, and offers a whopping 700 square inches of cooking surface. To get the same amount of space from a Traeger, you’d be paying about $200 more. They even throw in a cover for free.


Gooloo Mini Air Compressor | $10 | Amazon | Promo code 9XNRBQ52

Gooloo Mini Air Compressor | $10 | Amazon | Promo code 9XNRBQ52

While it’s certainly not as fast as the coin-operated air compressor at a gas station, this glove box-friendly compressor can save your bacon if you have to change a tire, or just can’t be bothered to find a bunch of quarters. And speaking of quarters, it’ll only cost 32 of them with promo code 9XNRBQ52.

This one’s powered by plugging into your car’s power outlet, so if you have a flat tire and a dead battery, it might be time to call AAA (and possibly eat some CBD gummies). But hey, it’s $8 and can save you a lot of headaches.


50-Pack Home-It Velvet Hangers | $18 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The most obvious feature of these hangers is that they’re covered in velvet, which keeps your clothes from slipping off of them. But an underappreciated benefit is that they’re slim!

Here’s Jolie Kerr talking about them on The Inventory.

If closet space is at a premium — and honestly for whomst is it not??? — slim hangers are a great choice. They’re designed so that both the hook and the, um, hanger part? Is there a word for that? There has to be …

… there is! It’s called the shoulder.

Where was I? Oh right, the hook and the shoulders on slim hangers are designed to be, well, slimmer than standard hangers, which will maximize space in your closet. Also, most slim hangers are velvet-covered, which gives them a non-slip quality that their plastic counterparts don’t provide.

This 50-pack normally costs $20, but today, it’s down to $18 with Prime shipping.


ThermoWorks Dot | $34 | ThermoWorks | Red, white, and blue models only
Graphic: Chelsea Stone

The ThermoWorks Thermapen has long been everyone’s favorite meat thermometer, but in the realm of probe thermometers, the brand’s DOT reigns supreme. And thanks to a Fourth of July sale, the DOT is down to its Black Friday price of $34 — so long as you don’t mind buying it in red, white, or blue.

The DOT is extremely accurate and easy to use; just set your target temperature, insert the probe into whatever’s cooking, and wait for the beep. Your dinner has never been so impeccably cooked.


Moen Kitchen Faucet Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

Amazon’s opening the discount floodgates on Moen faucets today, even those fancy ones that can be turned on and off hands-free. A bunch of them are up to $80 off their average prices. If you’re looking to update your kitchen with some fancy new gear, this is a good time to buy.

Faucets start at $65 and go all the way up to $288. Just don’t take too long, since these discounts will disappear by the end of day.


Calm Supplements, 90 Count | $40 | JustFoodForDogs | Promo Code calmjuly4th
Calm Supplements, 12 Count | $11 | JustFoodForDogs | Promo Code calmjuly4th
Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

4th of July is a great day for people to host barbeques and watch some fireworks. While it is always a fun time for humans, it isn’t always fun for animals. More pets run away around July 4th than any other time of year, often due to the fireworks being intensified by their heightened sense of sound. Right now, you can save on supplements that can help ease your dog’s 4th of July anxiety.

JustFoodForDogs now sells a Calm supplement, which is an all-natural blend of Valerian Root and Passion Flower to calm the nervous system by reducing stress. The supplements were designed by JustFoodForDogs’s team of veterinarians and can be used in common stressful situations for dogs, like separation anxiety. Until June 30, you can get 10% off the 12-count and 90-count of JustFoodForDog’s Calm Supplements using the promo code calmjuly4th.

In a press release, Dr. Oscar E. Chavez, Chief Medical Officer of JustFoodForDogs said:

“If there was ever a day for preventative care when it comes to our beloved dogs, Fourth of July is it. Our Calm supplement is a balanced fusion of valerian root and passion flower that works to naturally enhance and increase the function of GABA receptors in the brain; this helps calm the nervous system by reducing stress in situations that commonly cause tension.”

It really does pay to be an Amazon Prime member. As Prime Day(s) rapidly approaches, Amazon has a new limited-time, exclusive deal. You can get three months of Audible for the price of one.

The Logitech G703 Lightspeed wireless gaming mouse, one of the best gaming mice you can buy, is heavily discounted today. $55 is easily the best price we’ve ever seen on this unit used by pro gamers like Carpe, Striker, Poko, Fury, and Space.

30% Off Bundles | Jigsaw Massage | Promo code KINJABUNDLE

Jigsaw Massage is the exception to the expensive trend of at home massage therapy. By attaching to almost all T and U shank jigsaws, they avoideded creating a single use item, and instead made a clever attachment for a common tool, opening the door for at-home recovery to more athletes and those in chronic pain. Take an exclusive 30% off all bundles with code KINJABUNDLE.

I use mine plenty after long runs and speed work, and I like it both as an addition to, or in place of, foam rolling. But the most pleasant surprise came when I decided to start blasting my back and neck after hours of poor posture in front of the computer. Code should auto-apply at checkout.


Stealth Wallet
GIF: Indiegogo

In the ever-escalating arms race to create the thinnest wallet that’s actually useful, a new combatant has emerged.

The Stealth Wallet, available in either leather or a nylon-like “ballistic” material, is one of the thinnest wallets I’ve ever seen, and certainly the thinnest bifold, but is still incredibly strong. Most impressively though, it can hold eight cards (I actually squeezed in ten) and cash, so you don’t have to sacrifice your points collecting habit to enjoy a minimal wallet.

As you’d expect, with material this thin, the wallet doesn’t have much structure to it, but once you put some cards in either side, you’d never know it. The use of a thin elastic cord to hold your cash was also a clever touch that avoided the bulk of a true extra pocket.

They sent me both versions to check out, and though it costs a bit extra, I’d definitely recommend springing for the leather model. A nylon-ish wallet is supposed to be thin. But a razor-thin leather wallet is a sheer delight to behold.

Preorders are live now at a 15% discount, with shipments expected next month.
