Apple only started allowing third parties to make USB-C to Lightning cables a few months ago, but Anker’s already brought the fast-charging technology to their best cable: the PowerLine+ II.
The cable combines the best stuff from all of Anker’s premium charging cables, including a nylon-braided wrap, metal connectors, a 30,000 bend lifespan, and even a lifetime warranty if it somehow does ever break. And since it’s USB-C, it allows you to charge your iPhone at the fastest possible speeds from any USB-C PD charger: from 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes.
The 6′ version of the cable is already discounted from its usual $24 to $20 on Amazon (the 3′ is still priced at $22, for context), and a $3 clippable coupon makes it even cheaper.
Compared to the 2380, the new one is slightly faster (36 ppm vs. 32), uses less electricity, and has NFC for direct printing from compatible Android phones. All the basics that have made Brother printers a hit are still there too, including duplex printing, AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, relatively inexpensive and long lasting toner, and a complete lack of the carriage jams and destroyed paper you’ve come to expect from inkjet printers.
If you aren’t satisfied with your current printer (which is a pretty safe bet if it’s not a Brother), this is a great buy at $100.
If you own a Nintendo Switch or USB-C-powered laptop, a USB-C Power Delivery battery pack is a must. Anker has several models these days to choose from (including a small one that’s currently on sale), but none as unique as the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid.
First, the basics. It’s 19,000mAh, includes two PowerIQ USB charging ports, and a 27W USB-C port that can charge a 12″ MacBook at nearly full speed, or a MacBook Pro a bit slower. And unlike most of Anker’s competitors’ batteries, it also includes a 30W USB-C PD wall charger in the box that can recharge the battery in 3.5 hours, and double as an extra wall charger for your other gadgets.
That’s all well and good, but the PowerCore+ 19000 PD Hybrid has one more trick up its sleeve, one we haven’t seen on any other battery pack: It doubles as a USB data transfer hub. Just switch it into hub mode, and those USB-A charging ports become data ports that can transfer data between your PC and any connected USB hard drives and flash drives. That makes it the most comically large USB-C dongle in the world, but even so, that’s a handy skill, and means you’ll have one less thing to pack when you travel.
To get the deal, you’ll need to clip the $50 coupon to bring it down to $70, a match for the best price ever.
The key advantage of Ecobee’s smart thermostats has always been their ability to coordinate with wireless sensors to get a fuller picture of the temperature throughout your home, not just in the room that houses the thermostat itself.
This is especially helpful in houses with major temperature variations between levels. For example, if you have a bedroom in a finished attic, or a living area in a basement.
If you already have an Ecobee set up (and I know a lot of you do), then you can pick up an extra pair of sensors for just $59 on Amazon today, down from the usual $79.
Our readers have bought thousands of rechargeable batteries over the years, so it’s safe to assume you guys have some rolling around in the back of a drawer somewhere in your house. 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.
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.
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.
Today’s candy deal is no five pound bag of gummi bears, but it is a three pound bag of lollipops, and its discount is perhaps even more impressive.
Normally priced at $26, the bag of 240 Chupa Chups mini lollipops is marked down to $13 today, and a clippable 25% coupon brings it dow to $10. That works out to about $.04 per pop, if you’re doing the math. Just don’t eat them all at once.
If you’re not afraid to show off your green thumb, the ultimate gardening flex is a legitimate backyard greenhouse. This 6′ x 4′ option is easy to set up without any special tools, but its aluminum frame and built-in gutter system are still sturdy enough to protect your plants in rough weather.
So if you’re ready to give your plants a new home, the whole kit is marked down to $300 at Walmart, with free shipping.
Egg-shaped kamado grills offer excellent heat retention and control for slow-and-low smoking, as well as grilling, and this Char-Broil Kamander has never been cheaper than it is right now.
Its double walled steel construction won’t hold heat quite as well as the ceramic walls of a Big Green Egg, but at $274, it’s a whole lot cheaper, has a swing-out secondary cooking rack for a total of 469 square inches of cooking surface, and even has a built-in side table.
No matter what you need to carry around or store this summer, CleverMade has your back. In toady’s Gold Box, you can save on everything from collapsable hampers and reusable grocery totes, to insulated cooler bags and storage bins. A couple beach umbrellas are also, inexplicably, up for grabs, but don’t question a good thing. Just load up on all these cleverly made items from CleverMade before these deals are done tomorrow.
Somehow, it’s August already, and that means fall is just around the corner. If you’re responsible for clearing leaves from your yard, this Sun Joe cordless blower makes it easier for just $80 (with promo code KJBLWR). That’s $20 less than it sells for on Amazon.
It’s a 100 mph wind gust at your beck and call, just don’t let the power go to your head.
Only luddites use tape measures anymore. This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings of up to 131′, and includes several built-in area calculation functions, in case you’re a little rusty on your middle school geometry. And on either side, it even has built-in bubble levels, so you can be sure that you’re lined up accurately before you take any measurements.
Just clip the 5% coupon and use promo code IKRWDQV5 to get it for $18, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on one of these things.
Anker’s EufyCam home security system was a Kickstarter sensation, raising over $3,000,000. And now, the new version is available to all, and the two-camera starter kit is on sale for $240 today after clipping the $40 coupon and using promo code EUFYCM88 at checkout to save an extra $20.
These 1080p cameras are water resistant, support two-way intercom, include an audible alarm if someone tries to steal them, and most importantly, they run for a full year on a single battery charge, so you can set them up and forget about them.
Like most of these security systems, you can pay a nominal fee ($2.99 per camera) for Anker’s cloud DVR service, but the base station also comes with a 16GB microSD card that can save your recordings locally as well. Either way, you’ll still be able to get motion alerts and check in live from your phone for free.
If you happen to own any silver jewelry, flatware, or anything else that could use a little polishing, Goddard’s silver polishing cloths are the easiest way to bring them back to their original luster, provided they aren’t too far gone.
Here’s what cleaning expert Jolie Kerr had to say about them on The Inventory:
Goddard’s Silver polishing cloths are great for shining small or not-very-tarnished silver items quickly, and without needing water or household gloves. To use them, you simply rub the silver item vigorously with the polishing cloth, which will lift tarnish, and then buff it to a shine with a soft cloth. Silver polishing cloths are the thing you’ll want to use to shine up items that can’t be rinsed in water, like silver picture frames with photos in them. The cloth is treated with an anti-tarnishing agent that not only removes tarnish but also leaves a coating behind that will slow the rate of future tarnishing.
Get a two pack of Goddard’s cloths for $12 today on Amazon, an all-time low, and a small price to pay for restoring your silver.
Bag a new handbag—and a nice leather one, at that—from Amazon’s Gold Box. A selection of classy crossbody purses, along with a couple messenger bags and shoulder bags, are up for grabs for under $60. Just be sure to snag your new bag soon; these deals will only last one day.
Flint and Tinder doesn’t just make our readers’ favorite hoodie, though they do make that. They offer just about every kind of menswear under the sun, and it’s all made from premium materials, and 100% sourced and made in the USA.
Huckberry (the exclusive retailer of the brand) is currently running a wide-ranging “Last Few” sale on a bunch of different styles ranging from board shorts to underwear to henleys to hoodies (but not that hoodie, unfortunately). As you’d expect from a final clearance sale, some styles aren’t available in every size, but there’s enough variety here that you should be able to find something good.
Nothing leaves me feeling more zen than finding a good deal, and right now, a slew of apparel from Alo Yoga is on sale at HauteLook. Nama-save big on sports bras, tanks, leggings, and more that will have you looking stylish when you hit the mat. Just be sure to flow through this stock soon; this sale is just two days long, and the best stuff will likely sell out.
We might be approaching the last few weeks of summer, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still need shorts and button downs. You don’t have to pay full price on these summer essentials, though. Right now, you can stock up on shorts for between $12 and $27, during the Summer Short Sale, when you use the promo code SMSHORT. You can get long-sleeve and short-sleeve button downs for between $17 and $25 during the Button Down Blowout when you use the promo code BDB.
The weather’s warming up for most of the country (for now), so there’s never been a better time to shop this Sperry sale for men and women at HauteLook. Sperry makes plenty of styles for summer, including sandals and famed the brand’s boat shoes, so you’ll look the part whether you’re on land are at sea.
Update: The 3-pack and 85g sunscreen have gone up $1 (each) in price, while the 50g is still a blissful $8.
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 $16, 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.
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.
Sun’s out, sale’s out at Felix Gray. Right now, the brand that made a name for itself with their blue-light blocking computer glasses is taking 15% off a selection of sunglasses, which—you guessed it—also block blue light in addition to harmful UVA/UVBs. Eligible styles are marked on the site; just use promo code SUNSOUT to ensure you’re seeing that discount in your cart.
Therm-a-Rest is best known for its ultralight inflatable sleeping pads for backpackers, but if you’re car camping and not concerned about weight, you can indulge yourself with a little more padding.
The hilariously named Therm-a-Rest MondoKing 3D offers four inches of self-inflating padding, and should help you get a good night sleep outdoors all year round. Here’s what we had to say about it on The Inventory:
When a brand describes the pad as the biggest they’ve ever made, you know it is going to be good. The MondoKing uses completely vertical side walls so sleepers don’t lose space to the dreaded sloping effect. The pad itself is four inches thick which is absolutely gargantuan for a sleeping pad, but you won’t be sad about it when you’re dreaming throughout the night. Bonus: With an R-value of 11.4 (the standard rating for warmth), it is the warmest on the list.
It’d normally set you back $180, but Amazon just marked it down to $147, one of the first deals we’ve seen.
Summer is here, so get outside! But first, stock up on tons of apparel and gear from Eddie Bauer. Right now, the brand’s entire clearance section is an extra 60% off with promo code EBEXTRA60. Plenty of shirts, shorts, hats, shoes, and much more are up for grabs, and if you spend $49 or more, you’ll automatically get free shipping. Guaranteed, you’ll find anything you might need to enjoy the nice weather in style.
That Amazon gift card offer on Prime Day just wasn’t enticing enough for you, was it? If you’ve never bought an Amazon gift card on Amazon’s website before, you’re in luck. Yes, those of us who’ve picked up Amazon gift cards at the grocery store weren’t being dumb. Right now, when you buy $50 worth of Amazon gift cards, you’ll get a $15 credit to your Amazon account. It does not need to be one $50 gift card, you can get five $10 gift cards, 10 $5 gift cards, two $25 gift cards… you get the point. The gift cards just need to add up to $50 and need to be purchased in the same order.
In order to get your credit, you’ll need to use the promo code 19GIFTCARD or you can hit “apply code to your account” on the terms page for this promotion. The $15 credit will be applied to your account two to three days after the gift card or e-gift is sent. You can choose to set up an e-gift card delivery for a later date, it just needs to be sent by December 22, 2019.
If you didn’t buy enough years for $40 back on Black Friday or Prime Day, you can get the exact same price today on PlayStation Plus from eBay today in celebration of E3. If you own a PlayStation 4, or are planning to buy one soon, the only question is how many of these membership years you should buy, not whether you should buy them.

Pick up at least $100 worth of workout shirts, sweats, leggings, shoes, and more, and use promo code BTS25 at checkout to stack on the savings.

It’s hot outside, so be sure you’re staying hydrated in these sweltering temperatures with the Brita UltraMax Filtered Water Pitcher, now down to its lowest price ever at $28. This pitcher holds 18 cups of water, and features a spigot that makes pouring a cinch. Brita’s Longlast filter is included with the water dispenser, and it only needs to be changed every 6 months. Just be sure to drink up this deal before the price goes up.
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.
Reader-favorite Thermapens? Cheaper ThermoPops? The Smoke barbecue probe? The BlueDot? Even the laser-equipped (and hardly ever discounted) Thermapen IR? They’re all 15% off when you arrive at checkout.
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.
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.
If you’ve been looking for a way to make your backyard a little more colorful and interesting, look no further. You can get Honeywell LED Outdoor Color-Changing String Lights (24 feet) for only $30 on Amazon. To get that $20 off discount, you’ll just need to use the promo code DKQ2AZ8V at checkout. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
<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.
Right now, you can pick up The Banner Saga Bonus Edition Trilogy for just $20 on the Nintendo Switch. Normally priced at $30, it’s marked down to $10. PS4 or Xbox One owners can pick up the same trilogy for $6 more, which is still a great deal imo.
It may not feel like it, but the cold weather is fast approaching. Be ready when it arrives by stocking up on gear from The North Face for men, women, and kids. Loads of jackets, gloves, hats, and more are up for grabs for much less than usual at Nordstrom Rack. Come late fall, you’ll be glad you shopped this mid-summer blowout sale.
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.
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.
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.
One eyeshadow is good, but many eyeshadows are better—that’s where palettes come in. And right now, nine palettes from Stila Cosmetics are a steal at 30% off. Save big on pretty neutral-toned and ultra-saturated shadows, in addition to eyeshadow and illuminator duos and trios and an all-in-one color correcting set. This sale will only last for one day though, so pick out your perfect palette match before these prices are gone.
If you work out regularly, or uh, at all, you deserve a medal. Or just treat yourself to some new sneakers and/or activewear from Reebok. Right now, the sports-minded retailer is taking 40% off sitewide for their Back to School Sale with promo code SCHOOL. Chances are, you’ll make good use of these deeply discounted purchases for the entire school year (and many workouts) to come.
At the intersection of “cute” and “comfortable,” you will find Clarks. And right now, the footwear brand is kicking off a new season with an extra 30% off select sale items with promo code SALE30. Treat your feet to new sandals, loafers, slip-ons, and more from this shoo-in of a deal before it’s out for the summer.
Smart plugs are the atomic unit of smart home gear, and now you can grab TP-Link’s top-selling Kasa Smart Plug Lite (formerly called the Smart Plug Mini) for just $13, an all-time low.
These plugs won’t block the adjacent outlet, and work with your smartphone, Alexa, and Google Assistant anywhere you have an internet connection. Even if you only pull it out once per year to control holiday lights or something, it’s worth grabbing at this price.
Listen, there’s really no good way to sleep on a plane. But if you absolutely must get some upright shut-eye, you should be using the Cabeau Evolution for head and neck support. This memory foam travel pillow handily won our Co-Op, with readers shouting out its ability to hold its shape (even though it significantly shrinks in size when packed in its carrying case) and unique front clasps. And right now, it’s on sale in black for $30. Get yours today before this deal takes off; all your upcoming summer travel will be a dream.
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.
Normally $70, Amazon’s got it marked down to an all-time low $50 today. Just note that it’s only compatible with the latest iPad (currently on sale for $250), the new iPad Air, and the new iPad Mini; it won’t work with any iPad Pro or older iPad models.
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.
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.
Today’s $90 price (valid on all three versions) is up to $40 less than usual, and an all-time low.
If you like cold brew coffee, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Bizzy, Amazon’s #1 seller of cold brew beans, concentrates, and ready-to-drink coffee. They sent me some to try out recently, and it was incredibly smooth and tasty. In fact, I readily admit that I enjoyed it more than my typical Amazon Fresh DIY cold brew.
Now, they’re giving our readers 15% off anything on their Amazon storefront (fulfilled by Amazon) with promo code BZYGIZMO. I just bought two bottles of Bizzy concentrate for just $16 with the code and a 5% Subscribe & Save discount, which works out to just $.50 per cup if you follow Bizzy’s suggested ratios. That’s about the same cost as my cheapo DIY solution, and it’s tastier while not requiring me to wash any dishes afterwards. Everybody wins!
If you prefer to have a little more control over your coffee, the code will also work on Bizzy beans (both whole and coarse ground) in a variety of roasts.
Our readers have bought truckloads of Sunday Scaries CBD gummies, but today, you can save on their newest creation: Unicorn Jerky CBD Candy.
Each piece of Unicorn Jerky contains 10mg of calming CBD oil, the same as their gummies. At a starting price of $19 for a pack of 10 though (or $17 with promo code gizmodo10), it’s a less expensive way to get started.
The best part though? A dollar of every purchase goes towards The Trevor Project, which created and still operates the first national youth suicide hotline.
Most coolers are designed to be carried maybe 10 minutes away from the trunk of your car, but Kawartha’s Cooler Bag is just what you need to carry some beers and snacks deep into the woods on your next hike.
The Cooler Bag is actually a dry bag with a removable, insulated insert that can hold ice and food. Our resident outdoorsman Zach has been using it for awhile, and has nothing but good things to say:
During my first test of this bag, I managed to pack in 18 already cold beers and a few frozen steaks, with ice filling in any remaining space. Packing this much does mean some of your goods won’t fit inside the cooler insert (a 12-pack alone easily will), but if you can still close the outer bag using the roll top, everything still stays pretty cold. So after a 7 hour drive to the trailhead, it was another 1.5 mile hike into camp. Though there’s no convenient way to take that much weight into a secluded site, along with your own gear, this bag makes it bearable. Like a duffel, you can sling it over your shoulder, or carry it by the side handle, which is helpful in distributing the burden of your beer across different muscle groups.
For a limited time, you can use promo code KINJADB50 to get the whole setup for just $36 ($24 + $12 shipping, I know, I know), which would be a decent price for a good dry bag by itself, let alone one that can keep your drinks cold for hours.
The Nintendo Switch Lite differs from the standard model in a few ways:
- Smaller Screen
- Handheld Only, Non-Detachable Joy-Con, Longer Battery Life
- Costs $100 less
The handhelds will ship in a little more than a month on September 20.
How many sunglasses have you lost to a good time in the ocean or lake? The glasses fall off of your head and just sink to the bottom before you even get a chance to flail around and save them. Don’t worry about that issue anymore, you can now get off 50% off Floating Sunglasses from Waves when you use the promo code KINJAFS50. These Waves sunglasses have polarized lenses, 100% UVA + UVB protection, lightweight construction, and are made from an unsinkable plastic.
Since once-in-1,000-year heatwaves now seem to occur over large parts of the country every other Thursday or so, you need a water bottle that can keep your drink ice cold all day long, even in brutally hot conditions.
Waves Gear’s Forever Cold has been a popular option for years, because its double walled stainless steel construction can keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours straight, while still feeling comfortable to the touch on the outside. It’s certainly not the only water bottle like this, but it’s one of the few that goes the extra mile by including a double walled stainless steel cap as well. The plastic lid included with most steel bottles is, thermodynamically speaking, basically a gaping hole allowing environmental heat into your cold drink, and in my experience, the metal cap really does make a difference.
For a limited time, you can grab a 25 ounce Forever Cold in the color of your choice for $17, or a 34 ounce for $20. Just use promo code KINJAFC50 at checkout to save 50%.
