The most exciting product is this 25,00mAh battery pack with a freakin’ solar panel built in. Obviously, that little solar panel won’t recharge it very quickly, but it can add a little trickle of juice if you’re out on a camping trip, or at a tailgate. It also includes two regular USB ports, a USB-C port, and the ability to recharge it quickly by plugging in a USB-C and microUSB charger simultaneously. Get it for $38 with promo code WP2M4NLE.
Next up is a USB charging hub with a USB-C port. Unfortunately, that port doesn’t have Power Delivery, so it maxes out at 15W, but it’s still handy to have around. Use code A39DXT9S to get it for $19.
External hard drives are pretty fragile things, so if you’re a bit of a klutz, it might be worth springing for Silicon Power’s durable drives. The 2TB model is down to $65 today, which is the best price we’ve ever seen on a drive with IPX4 water resistance and military-grade shockproofing.
Anker’s original PowerLine Lightning cables were our readers’ favorites, and while they’ve been iterated on in the years since, the originals remain far nicer and stronger than Apple’s own cables. For a limited time, you can grab a 6' cable in any color you want for just $8.
The new Amazon Echo looks nicer than the original, but it doesn’t sound appreciably different, and the only notable feature it lacks is stereo pairing. If you can live without that, $60 is a terrific price for a refurb, if you can grab one before they’re gone forever.
If size trumps features in your hierarchy of new TV needs, here’s as good a deal as you’ll see.
This 75" RCA is the barest of barebones sets. While it does have 4K support, it lacks HDR, and even built-in smart apps. But you can always plug in a 4K-compatible streaming dongle for the same effect, and at just $900 (including the mandatory $50 freight shipping charge), it’s one of the cheapest 75" sets we’ve ever seen.
You can read all about quantum dots here, but the long and short of it that they’re the backbone of a backlighting technology that can produce OLED-quality images on a less expensive LCD panel.
Okay, so with that background out of the way, Samsung’s 2018 Q-series TVs utilize quantum dots to great effect. That Gizmodo review is about the 2017 model, but most of it will still apply to this set. Just note that to get the larger sizes, you’ll need to add the 55" to your cart, and select your size there.
You probably already have a pocket-sized battery pack that you can take with you anywhere, but it’s also worth owning a massive one for long plane rides, camping trips, and extended power outages. This one from RAVPower has 26,800mAh of power, enough for nearly six iPhone X charges, and it’s just $36 today with promo code 2HNSLWQX.
iOttie makes some of the most popular smartphone dash mounts out there, and you can grab the popular One Touch 3 for just $18 today, down from the usual $25. Featuring a telescoping arm, iOttie’s satisfying mounting mechanism (just press your phone into the cradle, and the arms snap shut), and one of the best suction cups in the business, it sure beats keeping your phone in your lap.
If you want to use a case to prevent scratches and protect from (short) drops, but don’t want to add much bulk to your iPhone, Vincoe’s UltraRaw iPhone cases are as unobtrusive as they come, at just .33mm thin. For a limited time, our readers can outfit their new (or old) iPhone for just $10 with promo code KINJADEALS, which is valid on any of their iPhone 7/8, 7+/8+, X, Xs, or Xs Max (these names, man) cases.
Do these TaoTronics noise-canceling Bluetooth over-ears sound as good as, say, Sony’s? I’ve tried both, and no, they don’t, but they’re really not bad! I wore them on a plane recently, and the noise cancelation made a tremendous difference.
Unsurprisingly, they’re significantly (significantly!) cheaper than name brand options at just $43 with promo code KINJAB21, and should still be able to block out a lot of the background noise around you.
The SoundCore 2 still includes dual drivers and that amazing 24 hour battery; the only real differences are a slightly tweaked design and the aforementioned water resistance. That means you can take it to the pool, the beach, or even the shower without fear.
Private Internet Access doesn’t do much in the way of discounting, but they offer exclusive pricing and packages just for our readers that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are your options, and what you’d pay if you bought the same plan elsewhere:
If you have some bare spaces on your walls at home, you can fill them with Vintage Book Art prints, just $10 each in today’s Gold Box. Each art print is layered atop an actual vintage dictionary page, meaning every single piece is completely unique. You don’t get to pick the words on your page, but you do get to pick the art that’s printed on top.
The leaves will start turning before you know it, which will provide about a week’s worth of happiness and Instagram likes before they all fall off and start molding in your yard. Today’s DEWALT sale at The Home Depot is here to help though with a $70 corded blower, plus bundles with other discounted yard tools. This is Home Depot’s deal of the day, so you can’t procrastinate like you do when it comes to actually getting yard work done.
It includes a base unit with a large screen to show you the two probes’ temperature, plus a wireless lanyard so you can leave the grill while still keeping an eye on your temperature. And of course, you can set a min/max temperature for each probe, and get an audible alarm if the smoker needs your attention.
I know packing cubes can seem redundant—they’re like luggage for your luggage—but trust me when I say that they make packing, unpacking, and repacking during a trip so much more pleasant, and can also help you squeeze more clothes into your carry-on.
In a small apartment, a laundry basket is an albatross that takes up far too much floor space, which is what makes this collapsible model so ingenious. When not in use, it folds up flat enough to squeeze it into the gap next to your washer and dryer, or you could just lean it against the wall in your closet. Today’s $22 price (with promo code VRMILNDRY20) is the best we’ve seen, so go ahead, reclaim a few square feet.
The best part about these lights is that when it comes time to recharge the light, the battery pack pops right out and plugs directly into any USB port to recharge. There are no cables to deal with, and no wasted AAs either. Get it for $13 today with promo code RXA8TA6N.
These $7 gloves (with promo code KRZC832Q) let you grab a hot pan out of the oven, pull meat right off a grill, or even turn logs in an active campfire without getting burned, like some kind of kitchen superhero. We’ve seen silicone barbecue gloves for less than this in the past, but these are rated for much higher temperatures, and should be more flexible as well.
ThermoWorks is best known for its industry-leading kitchen thermometers, but did you know they also make silicone trivets? They’re dishwasher safe, can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees, and can double as makeshift pot holders. Normally priced at $6, they’re marked down to under $4 today. There is $4 flat rate shipping through, so maybe buy several.

Prices vary by date and departure airport, but start at just $869 and include roundtrip airfare and your hotel stay. With some patience and flexibility with the dates there’s a strong deal out of most major airports. And while Waikiki is a good place to stay close to the action, it’s worth remembering that you’re just a 20-minute car ride away from bigger and better beaches.
I have to say, I don’t think pressure washers ever crossed my mind as a market Anker might compete in, but here we are. Its 2100 PSI and 1.78 gallons per minute specs should be more than enough power to clean your car or driveway, and its 35' power cable and 26' hose mean you probably won’t even need an extension cord to go with it.
Random acts of kindness are fun for everyone involved, and this one’s just too easy. For their Rose Festival, 1800-Flowers is giving you an extra dozen roses, along with a vase and candle, free with the purchase of your first dozen, all for $30 and shipped in a gift box. They’ve got several other offers too, so make someone, anyone, happy, and feel good about. Hell, give someone else a hug while you’re at.
Cooking eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, but I’d say the ability to make soft, medium, and hard boiled eggs, plus omelettes and poached eggs at the touch of a button is worth $15. The Dash is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.4 star review average from nearly 7,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price of the year.
Every new Firstleaf member gets an introductory delivery with three bottles of wine for just $15, plus $5 shipping. Considering that you aren’t locked in and can cancel any time, that’s a bargain. But it gets even better for our readers, as promo code Kinja will waive the $5 shipping charge, for a limited time. That’s three bottles of wine (all of mine had MSRPs over $20) for just $5 each shipped, with no commitment.
You can read more about the service in my review, but if you choose to remain a member (I did), every box thereafter includes six bottles for $80, plus $10 shipping.
This riser arrives fully assembled, and just sits on top of your existing desk. Put your monitor(s) on the top shelf, your keyboard and mouse on the bottom, and use its integrated spring system to raise the entire setup from a sitting to standing position within seconds. I own a very similar product from Varidesk (which was much more expensive, by the way), and I absolutely love it.
Backcountry’s fall apparel sale (which looks more like an all seasons sale to me) has a ton to offer from two outdoor favorites, Marmot and Prana, with nearly every item listed at 30% off or more. You’ll find sweaters, vests, dresses, beanies, base layers, jackets, and more to choose from. Even a rain jacket co-op favorite, the Precip Jacket, made it’s way into the sale.
Even the nicest smart watches look like butt compared to even an affordable Timex, and you can save an extra 20% on already-discounted sale styles (men | women) today with promo code AUTUMN20.
Not sure where to start? The reader-favorite Weekenders are always a safe bet.
What if your clothes could do more during the winter than just keeping body hit in. What if they actually generated heat of their own? That’s the promise of Flare, a new smart shirt from Blanc.
Flare is a stretchy, long sleeved shirt/pullover with three integrated carbon fiber heating pads - one on your belly, and two on your back. A zippered pocket features a USB port to power them; just plug in a USB power bank (one is included), and hold down the power button on the bottom of the shirt to fire it up.
About those heating pads. You can definitely tell that there’s something sewn into the fabric, but they’re remarkably thin and flexible. Wearing Flare is like wearing a shirt, not like wearing a tech product. You can even throw it in the washing machine like the rest of your clothes, as long as you take out the power bank first. You are encouraged to air dry it, however.
Winter is coming, but you can be prepared with these Zippo hand warmers. Unlike those disposable chemical hand warmers, Zippos lasts for either six or 12 hours depending on the model, and can be re-used by filling it with a small amount of lighter fluid. Plus, they just look really cool.
It might not have the name recognition or cool factor of a YETI, but this 55 quart Lifetime cooler is a lot cheaper at just $97 today, and keeps ice frozen for up to seven days. It just met that threshold in this YouTube test, even when it was left outside in the hot sun.

This credit is only available on the physical version, and it won’t be added to your account for about a month, but still, $10 is $10!
The Nintendo Switch has been around long enough that we’re starting to see certified refurbs hit the market en masse. This one’s available for $275, which is only a $25 discount, but it’s sold direct from Nintendo’s own eBay storefront, and includes the standard one-year warranty.
There’s a new Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Switch bundle on the way, and it includes a download code for the game, Smash-themed Joy-Con, and a unique Switch Dock with all of the original N64 game’s characters tastefully embossed on the front. It’s up for preorder now for $360 (and a clippable Amazon coupon saves you a whopping $3.60 - it’s better than nothing!), and comes out November 2, though the game won’t unlock until December 7.
Of all the themes you could choose for a Humble Bundle, “Overwhelmingly Positive,” meaning overwhelmingly positive Steam ratings, has to be near the top of the list. Pay what you want to get the likes of Subsurface Circular, SOMA, and Opus Magnum.
As always, the games are split among different price tiers, but $15 will unlock everything, including a $2 Humble Wallet credit for Humble Monthly members.
Magna-Tiles combine the creativity of LEGOs with the sheer tactile satisfaction of magnets. This 100-piece set is rarely discounted from its usual $120, but promo code KJTILES will bring it down to $110 today at Daily Steals. It’s a little early to be thinking about holiday shopping, but this would be a great gift for any kid.
The Harry Potter extended merchandise universe includes a surprisingly deep co-op deck building card game, and you can summon it to your front door for just $30 today, within about $1 of an all-time low price.

It would also make a great holiday gift for the Potterhead in your life.
