Top Tech Deals

RAVPower 2-in-1 Wall Charger and Power Bank | $21 | Amazon | Promo code kinja013
Advertisement

RAVPower’s newest battery pack is very similar to the reader-favorite Anker PowerCore Fusion, but with double the battery capacity (10,000mAh vs. 5,000mAh). For a battery pack that plugs directly into an AC outlet, that does mean that it might be more susceptible to falling out of worn out, loose-fitting outlets, but at $21, it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

Advertisement

The real appeal of these things is that you only have to take one charger with you when you travel. This can act as your wall charger at night, and your battery pack during the day, all without the need to futz with microUSB cables to recharge it.

Advertisement

If you missed it yesterday, here’s a 10,000mAh battery for just $9, albeit without AC outlet prongs.

Anker PowerCore Speed PD 20000 | $60 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERPD9
Advertisement

Update: Now just $60 with promo code ANKERPD9

Anker’s reader-favorite PowerCore battery packs run the gamut from tiny tubes that fit into your pocket to massive blocks of energy that can power your devices for days at a time. Today’s deal is quite firmly in the latter camp.

Advertisement

The PowerCore Speed 20000 is one of the few battery packs on the market with USB-C Power Delivery up to 22.5W. That means it can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, a Nintendo Switch at full power while you’re playing Zelda on a plane, or an iPad Pro significantly faster than the charger it came with (if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable).

Advertisement

Power Delivery works both ways too, so you can actually recharge the entire battery pack with the included 30W USB-C wall charger, which will refill it in a fraction of the time of a standard 2A USB charger.

We saw this thing at CES last week, and while its capacity is slightly smaller than the similarly equipped PowerCore+ 26800, it’s dramatically lighter, and probably the better choice for most travelers. They’ve marked it down to an all-time low $80 $60 today on Amazon, which is $10 $30 less than its launch price, and $20 $40 less than its regular going rate.

Sound bars are getting so good and affordable, there’s really no reason not to get one for all of your TVs, not just your main home theater. This 36" Samsung sound bar packs in 300W of total audio output, Bluetooth for connecting your phone, and even a wireless subwoofer for extra bass. If you’re still listening to your TV through its built-in speakers, needless to say, this would be a massive upgrade. This is a refurb, but it’s tough to argue with $85 shipped.


RAVPower 2-Pack USB-C Cables | $7 | Amazon | Promo code KINCB009
Advertisement

We see deals on USB 3.0 to USB-C cables fairly often, but discounts on straight C-to-C cables are comparatively rare. If you need a few to add to your collection, you can grab two (a 3' and a 6') today for just $7 with code KINCB009.

Advertisement

And if you missed it yesterday, you can still get a 3-pack of A-to-C cables for the same price as well.

Advertisement

Bluetooth Beanie | $9 | Amazon | Promo code MM7DR88W
Advertisement

In today’s edition of “Silly Things That Are Actually Kind of Useful,” we have a $9 beanie with tiny Bluetooth speakers built right in. I’m sure the sound quality isn’t amazing, but it should be adequate for listening to podcasts, or even some summery songs to make you feel less cold and miserable over the next month or so.

Advertisement

DotStone HDMI Switcher | $8 | Amazon | Promo code CF39SQ8C
Advertisement

The government should mandate that all TVs come with at least five HDMI ports. I see no downside to this. Until I become president though, this $8 HDMI switcher will have to do. It basically turns one port into two, switches between devices at the press of a button.

REIIE H9+ Backlit Mini Remote Keyboard and Touchpad | $10 | Amazon | Promo code 4GRBR85D
Advertisement

Little known fact: Entering your Netflix password on a TV with a game controller is technically considered torture under the Geneva Convention.

If you’re still subjecting yourself to this misery, do yourself a favor and pick up this $10 wireless keyboard/trackpad remote. It’s kind of ugly looking, but it’ll get the job done on your PS4, Xbox One, smart TV, or home theater PC. It’s even backlit!

Advertisement

Advertisement

The Fire TV Stick and the Echo Dot go great together. Both have Alexa support, and if you can’t find your remote, you can still use your voice to control playback via the Dot. Amazon’s currently selling a bundle with both of them for $70, which isn’t as cheap as you might see during major sale events, but it’s still a $20 savings compared to buying them separately at full price.

Advertisement

Aukey AudioLink Speaker | $72 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYSA6
Advertisement

SONOS pioneered the multi-room audio category, and now Alexa can do it too, but Aukey’s solution looks like a great, affordable alternative.

These AudioLink speakers feature dual 10W drivers and two passive subwoofers, so they should be plenty loud. They’re also IPX5 water resistant, so you could probably keep one outside. The real kicker though? They can run off a built-in battery for over seven hours on a charge, so you can rearrange them at will if you’re throwing a party.

Advertisement

They communicate with each other over a 5.8GHz Wi-Fi connection, so you won’t have to connect them to your home Wi-Fi or fiddle with a bunch of settings. If you live in a mansion, that could be a problem, but their ~100 foot range should be more than enough for most setups. Just use promo code AUKEYSA6 at checkout to save $18.

Seagate FireCuda 2TB | $85 | Amazon
Advertisement

Seagate’s FireCuda is one of the most popular PS4 replacement hard drives out there, mostly thanks to its built-in 8GB of flash storage that can speed up loading times, and you can get the 2TB model for just $85 today, or roughly $10 less than usual.

Advertisement

Aukey USB-C Hub | $33 | Amazon | Promo code AUKEYH60
Advertisement

USB-C is going to be really great once it’s everywhere, but until then, we’re confined to dongle purgatory. This $33 hub from Aukey turns one USB-C port into four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and even includes a pass-through 60W USB-C port for charging.

Advertisement
Anker PowerLine+ Nylon-Wrapped Lightning Cable | $8 | Amazon | Promo code ANKER888 | Red only

We see deals with some regularity on Anker’s 6' and 10' nylon-wrapped PowerLine+ Lightning cables, but today, you can upgrade your standard 3' cords for just $8 each. The PowerLine+ feels ridiculously nice in the hand, is way more durable than Apple’s first party cable, and comes with an 18 month warranty, so what’s not to love?

Advertisement

Note: The code is only valid on the red model.

Advertisement

VicTsing Bluetooth FM Transmitter | $13 | Amazon | With code LTF8BHJS
Advertisement

If you own an older vehicle, you probably don’t have Bluetooth. Hell, you might not even have an AUX jack. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stream music, podcasts, and phone calls wirelessly to your stereo.

Just plug this $13 transmitter (with code LTF8BHJS) into your car’s power outlet (it has two built-in USB ports so you can still charge your phone), find an empty radio station, connect your phone over Bluetooth, and stream away.

Advertisement

Qi Wireless Charging Stand | $16 | Amazon | Promo code U2DTPOJV
Advertisement

Whether you’re an iPhone owner who finally gets to enjoy wireless charging, or you’ve had it for years with your Android devices, this discounted Qi stand will charge and prop up your device. And with two charging coils built in, it’ll even work when you lay down your phone in landscape mode.

1 Year NordVPN, $48 with code VIP70
2 Year Plan, $79 with code 2YSpecial2017
3 Year Plan, $99 with code 3ydeal
Advertisement

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 to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Start brewing for 20% less thanks to this coupon from Amazon. The coupon applies to a whole bunch of Celestial tea flavors, most of which are sold in 6-packs, but Amazon is also offering some smaller quantities of holiday flavors and variety packs. Just remember it takes the 20% from your first order when you Subscribe & Save, but you can cancel at any time (even right after your first order ships), if you don’t want multiple shipments.

Similar to the best-selling Dash Egg Cooker, this Better Chef model can soft, medium, or hard boil seven eggs at once (compared to the Dash cooker’s six) and is selling at an all-time-low price today, just $13. So what are you waiting for?

Yi Dash Cam with Wi-Fi | $30 | Amazon | Promo code SDSV7MX8
Advertisement

Yi makes our readers’ favorite budget action cam, and now, they’ve brought that expertise to an extremely affordable dash cam.

Advertisement

$30 gets you the Yi Dash Cam today (with promo code SDSV7MX8), this model doesn’t support 1080/60 recording like another Yi dash cam we’ve seen (you’re stuck with 1080/30), but it does have Wi-Fi for easy offloading of clips onto your phone.

You can save $50 off this 12-piece stainless steel set or $25 off this nonstick set in today’s T-fal Gold Box. These are not your favorite All-Clad tri-ply pans, but I’m sure they get the job done for the occasional cook. If you’re not in the market for a new cookset, this ceramic nonstick square pan is a good $15 less than usual and has a impressive 4.4-star rating with over 3,000 reviews.

These sales will only last until the end of the day, or until the product sells out, so get them while you can.

Space Heaters | Home Depot
Advertisement

Depending on where you live, you probably have at least a couple more weeks of winter-y weather. If you could use a little more warmth in your house, pick up one of these discounted Lasko space heaters from Home Depot today.

These are all a good $10 - $20 lower than their Amazon prices, but these discounts will only last through the end of the day, so don’t wait too long.

On the one hand, deep fried foods are bad for you. On the other hand, you can make your own Super Bowl fried chicken wings and wow your guests so much they cheer and throw a vat of Gatorade on you. I know what I’m choosing.

This T-Fal deep fryer normally sells for around $90, so you can concentrate on the health of your wallet today, and worry about your arteries later.

Jack Links Snack Packs | $12 | Amazon | After $1 coupon

You know those little jerky snack packs that cost like $8 each at the airport Hudson News? You can get nine of them for $12 on Amazon today when you clip the $1 coupon. I’ll be on the lookout for deals on floss too.

AmazonBasics Packing Cube Set | $16 | Amazon | Black and Grey only
Advertisement

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four from AmazonBasics is only $16 today, or about $4-$6 less than usual. I have a set of these, and absolutely love them.

Advertisement

Advertisement

It’s worth having at least a small safe in your house for valuables and important documents, and this one from AmazonBasics is only $44 today, or about $9-$12 less than usual. Just like the safes you’d find in hotel rooms, this one uses a digital keypad for access, but you’ll also get a couple of backup keys if you forget the code, or if the battery dies.

JACKYLED 45 Piece Mini Screwdriver | $7 | Amazon | Promo code 84AE5BMG
Advertisement

This is hardly the first deal we’ve seen on a phone repair screwdriver kit, but it’s the first time we’ve ever seen one for just $7. That includes screwdriver heads for most major electronics products, plus a suction cup to help you remove screens, and some plastic tweezers too.

Contigo’s Autoseal West Loop travel mugs are a longtime reader favorite, but the similar SnapSeal Kenton is marked down to one of the best prices we’ve seen when you buy a 2-pack today on Amazon.

Advertisement

This deal gets you two mugs, one in Hunter Green, and the other in Gunmetal. Unlike the West Loop, the Kenton’s lid doesn’t open and close automatically, though many reviewers say it’s easier to clean. What sets the Kenton apart from other Contigo SnapSeal mugs is its cool-looking (and I would assume easier to grip) diamondized exterior, which looks great without harming the mug’s thermal properties: Your drinks will still stay cold for seven hours, or hot for a whopping 16.

Give a Larabars a try with this variety box, just $18 after the $6 off coupon. If you’re unfamiliar with Larabars, they’re gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegan bars, mostly made from dates. This brand has a bunch of interesting flavors, blueberry muffin is my personal favorite, and this variety box is a good option if you aren’t ready to commit to a big box of one flavor.

Seal the unused half of your fruits and veggies in these $6 silicone Food Huggers, and then rinse, and reuse over and over again. Sure, you could use plastic wrap to achieve the same thing, but you can’t always untangle plastic wrap to reuse a second time. The Food Huggers come in four sizes and can also be used as jar lids, small bowls, or jewelry holders. Today’s price is the lowest they’ve ever been, so squeeze in this deal before it’s gone.

This 6-piece stackable container set will keep your refrigerator and freezer presentable. It comes with special containers for cans, eggs, and then more generic shapes for everything else. This set normally bounces between $30 - $35, and today’s price is an all-time low.

If the thought of a $16 rice cooker isn’t enough to engage your salivary glands—and really, what’s more exciting than rice?—consider that it also includes a steaming tray that can cook your meats and vegetables simultaneously. That means dinner gets ready faster, and with less to clean up.

While they might not conform to the classic look of our favorite chef’s knives , this Cuisinart knife set is anything but dull (get it?). You can own the whole collection today for just $16, one of the best prices we’ve seen.

Don’t let the colors fool you, these knives are stainless steel, and extremely sharp. The set has a 4.6 star average on nearly 4,000 reviews, and while the colors might not seem like your thing, they do help you keep track and avoid cross-contaminating food while you use them.

Wi-Fi Endoscope | $20 | Amazon | Promo code 62BTEZQK
Advertisement

Update: The endoscope we wrote about yesterday sold out, but here’s a very similar product for just $1 more.

Advertisement

Look, I get it, you don’t think you need an endoscope. And you probably don’t! At least right now. But the day will come—it could be in a week, it could be in 10 years—where you need a snake-like camera to look down a drain, or in the recesses of a car engine, or inside your air conditioning ducts, and you’ll be glad you bought one for $19.

Dr. Meter’s Wi-Fi endoscope is a 720p camera with built-in LED headlights at the end of a five-meter, semi-rigid cable. At the other end of the cord is an included Wi-Fi module that that broadcasts live video to your phone or computer over, so you see what the camera sees. It also comes with three attachments (a hook, a magnet, and a mirror) that you can slip onto the end to peer around corners, or retrieve tiny items.

At this point, I feel like I should cover my bases and point out that this is not a medical device. Please, don’t put it inside you or anyone else. Otherwise, have fun. Thanks.

Amazon’s January fitness sales continue unabated today, with great prices on both an exercise bike and a rowing machine.

The bike is fairly barebones, utilizing a 40 pound flywheel and manual resistance system, rather than automated programs like you’d see at the gym. That said, it’s only $196 today, or about $50 less than usual.

Advertisement

The rowing machine is is even cheaper at $170 (an all-time low), and has a similarly spartan feature set, but it’s one of the best upper body workouts you can do at home.

A plain, long-sleeve t-shirt isn’t anything to get too excited about, but at $6, it’s worth grabbing it in a couple different colors. Uniqlo’s cotton items are always really, really soft and this tee worth it even at full price, but even more worth it when it’s on sale.

If your board game cabinet has been gathering dust lately, Amazon’s running a big one day sale on family games and puzzles from Ravensburger and Melissa & Doug, with options available for every age group.

This particular sale indexes more heavily on puzzles than board games than some previous sales we’ve seen, but the selection is expansive. Just let us know in the comments what you picked out!

As if Civilization VI and some DLC for $12 weren’t enough, Humble just added Owlboy as an early access title for this month’s Humble Monthly.

If you prefer to play your games on PC, it might just be the best deal in gaming.

So right now, you could conceivably pay $12, download your copies of Civ VI, Owlboy, and some Civ DLC, cancel your subscription before it renews, and those games would be yours to keep forever. I don’t recommend canceling, for the reasons mentioned above, but that’s a ton of value for just $12.
