Top Tech Deals

iClever 10,000mAh Solar Battery Pack, $15 with code ICSOLAR2

$15 is a pretty good price for a 10,000mAh battery pack. It’s absolutely insane for one with a solar panel and 12-LED flashlight array. Obviously, that little solar panel won’t recharge the battery very quickly, but it can trickle charge it while you’re outdoors, so it’s nice to have.

$25 off any $150 electronics order with code ITSELECTRIC25 | $40 off any $250 electronics order with code ITSELECTRIC40

If you’re in the market for a TV, computer, graphics card, camera, smartphone, drone, speaker system, or pretty much anything else that could be broadly considered “electronic,” Jet’s taking $25 off basically any $150 electronic order with promo code ITSELECTRIC25, or $40 off any $250 order with code ITSELECTRIC40. As far as we know, there aren’t any restrictions as long as you can find the item on through this page.

If you’re planning on fleeing the country taking a trip overseas anytime soon, you’ll want to pack this universal outlet adapter, which can convert an AC outlet, and includes four USB ports too for your mobile devices.

The new 10.5″ iPad Pro might just be the best device Apple’s ever made, and Staples is taking $50 off both the 64GB and 256GB models today, the biggest discount we’ve seen so far. Seriously, run to an Apple Store and just play with it for a second. The animations on the screen are so buttery smooth it doesn’t seem like it should be possible.

Netgear Nighthawk R6700, $75 after $20 coupon

If your home network has more holes than Swiss cheese, Netgear’s Nighthawk R6700 features beamforming, USB ports, and up to 1750 Mbps maximum throughput, meaning it’s more than enough router for most homes. You can save an additional $20 off the already-solid price of $95 by clipping the coupon, bringing it down to just $75.

Cowin Bluetooth Floating Speaker, $35 with code HU5ZAXYA

We see deals on water-resistant Bluetooth speakers all the time, but not many of them are actually buoyant. Cowin’s IPX7-rated speaker can bob along with you in the pool or baththub, all while blasting your tunes from a 10W driver and displaying an LED light show on the top.

TP-Link N300 Range Extender, $15 with code 5OFF855RE | TP-Link AC2300 Router, $140 with code 30OFFC2300

If your current home network isn’t quite up to snuff, a pair of Amazon promo codes can go a long way towards fixing that today.



First up, this inexpensive range extender won’t be a cure-all for your range woes, but if you have one corner of your house that just doesn’t get a strong signal, it might be all you need. Use promo code 5OFF855RE to get it for just $15.

If you want to go whole-hog and replace your router, this powerful TP-Link AC2300 model is $30 off with promo code 30OFFC2300. This deal seems a little misleading, because it was the same price ($140) a few days ago without a promo code, but that’s an all-time low price regardless.

Philips Hue White Starter Kit, $54 for Prime members at checkout.

Update: Prime members can now save an extra 10% on this at checkout, bringing it down to $54.



If you like the idea of Philips Hue’s automation features, but don’t particularly care about exotic and colorful lighting concepts, you can pick up the Hue White starter kit for $60 today, about $10 less than usual. That gets you two soft white bulbs and a Bridge that lets you control them from your phone, or with voice assistants like Siri and Alexa.

Already have a Bridge? You can also get the bulbs by themselves for $27, about $3 less than usual.

The standalone Hue Motion Sensor is also $8 off right now, if opening an app on your phone or yelling at Alexa is too much work.

If you already have a Philips Hue Bridge, you can pick up individual White and Color bulbs for $7 off today on Amazon. They were a few bucks cheaper on Prime Day, but otherwise, this is the best deal we’ve seen on the third generation bulbs, which feature more vivid greens and blues.

Update: The Philips Hue BR30 flood light bulb is also marked down to $45, an all-time low.

There aren’t a ton of Bluetooth headphones that also include noise cancelling, and at $170, Sony’s h.Ear over-ears are some of the most affordable we’ve seen.


These headphones have all the features you’d expect in a good pair of Bluetooth headphones these days: NFC pairing, 20+ hour battery life, and even Hi-Res audio compatibility. But the secret sauce here is noise cancellation, powered by dual microphones and a chip that selects the best cancelation mode based on your surroundings. $170’s still a pretty penny, but it’s the best price we’ve ever seen on these.

There are precious few battery packs out there with USB-C power delivery, and this 30,000mAh model from Aukey is one of the most affordable we’ve seen.


In addition to the two standard USB output ports, the USB-C port works as both an input and high-speed output port that can charge a 12″ MacBook at full speed, or charge your Nintendo Switch’s battery level while playing it at full brightness. It’s pretty huge, but 30,000mAh should be enough juice to get power your devices for hours or days on end. Just be sure to use promo code AUPOWER1 at checkout to get it for $54.

Aukey 3-Pack USB-C Cables, $9 with code XUOO3DFQ | 5-Pack, $14

Until such a time that USB-C ports are ubiquitous and have completely replaced old-style USB ports, you’ll need some A-to-C cables to manage the transition. Get three for $9 with promo code XUOO3DFQ, or five of varying lengths for $14, no code required.

You know those cool 360 videos you’ve seen on YouTube, or even in a VR headset? All you need to make your own is the Samsung Gear 360, and it can be yours for an all-time low $110 today.

Even if you don’t have access to a helicopter or speed boat to capture truly jaw-dropping video, you could easily plop this thing into the middle of a party or get-together, and relive the whole thing in 360 degrees later. I wish I’d had one for my wedding.

Here’s a sample of what you can capture from the Gear 360. On desktop (Chrome only), you should be able to click and drag around, and on mobile, your phone’s accelerometer should be able to rotate the video within the YouTube app.

Mpow basically invented the $20 Bluetooth earbud market, and now that paltry sum can get you a set over wireless over-ears too.

1 Year NordVPN, $48 with code VIP70 | 2 Year Plan, $72 with code 2YSpecial2017

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.

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

Update: Sold out



It’s hard to get excited about a tape measure, but this one looks cool as hell. The eTape16 works just like a regular 16′ tape measure, but a digital display on the top gives you an easy read-out of your current distance, converts fractions to decimals and imperial units to metric, and will even store a few measurements in memory so you don’t have to write them down.

The best feature though? With the touch of a button, you can start your measurement from the back of the tape measure, meaning you won’t have to bend it around corners when measuring tight spaces. That’s worth the (all-time low) $20 price tag on its own.

Coca-Cola is killing off Coke Zero next month and replacing it with…something. It’s a decision that rivals Nintendo’s premature beheading of the NES Classic for sheer stupidity, but you still can and should buy Coke Zero in bulk, before it disappears from shelves for good.

Maybe “Coke Zero Sugar” will be as good as they say, and our beloved Coke Zero formula will be seldom mourned. But this seems unlikely, since Coke Zero is a perfect miracle beverage. Luckily, Jet still has 35-pack cases available for $14, with bulk discounts available when you buy more (we are stockpiling, after all), plus 15% off for new customers with code SAVE15, and free shipping on orders over $35. Who knows, it could even turn into an eBay goldmine.

Ivation Portable Shower, $25 with code XWWRU9KQ

Whether you’re washing your dog or rinsing sand off your feet, there are times where you could really use a hose, but don’t have one available. For just $25 though, this battery-powered portable shower turns any bucket of water into an easily-controlled stream of water. It even recharges over USB!

6-Pack Eclipse Glasses, $8 with code ECLIPSE6

Update: As some of you have noted, you should be careful with these, and make sure they’re marked with the ISO 12312-2 label when you receive them. If they are ISO and CE certified as the Amazon page claims, they’re fine, but given the fact that some counterfeits have been reported elsewhere on Amazon, it’s worth double checking once you receive them.



The solar eclipse is less than a month away, and if you want to see it without melting your eyeballs, you can pick up a 6-pack of ISO and CE-certified safety glasses for just $8 today on Amazon.

I know it’s summer and blankets aren’t at the top of your mind, but Qbedding’s microplush fleece blankets are seriously popular, and they’re all on sale today.



These blankets boast a 380 grams per square meter weight, which is significantly higher than the average 250 you’d see on most fleece blankets. That means they’re warmer, softer, and less prone to shedding. And if that doesn’t convince you, maybe the 4.6 star review average from over 1600 customers will.

For a limited time, promo code 7T7VDU33 will take 10% off any size and any color sold by Qbedding, Inc. and fulfilled by Amazon, so pick your favorite, and bundle up.

Yi 1080p Home Security Camera, $48 with code X3GITOIK

Our readers have bought thousands of Yi’s home security cameras, but today, you can save $12 on the new 1080p model.



Yi now offers an online cloud DVR service that will store seven days of motion detection footage for free, 15 days worth of motion detection footage for $100/year for five cameras, or $100/year per camera to store 15 days worth of all the footage the camera shoots, whether it detected motion or not. That said, you can choose for forego the cloud service altogether, and just store your clips locally on a microSD card. The camera also has two-way intercom and live broadcast built in, so you can check in on your house any time you want.

Just be sure to use promo code X3GITOIK at checkout to save $12.

OxyLED Smart Fridge Light, $10 with code OXN03DPM

OxyLED has been selling stick-anywhere LED lights in every shape and size for years, but this model might be the coolest one yet.



Functionally, it’s a motion-sensing battery powered-light like many of OxyLED’s others, but the design is 100% new. Instead of sticking the whole thing to a surface with adhesive, this two-piece setup includes a base that attaches with magnets or adhesive, and a separate light module that nests magnetically inside, allowing you to point it in any direction you want.

That means you can remove the light from the base at any time to charge it, or even to use it as a portable flashlight. Just be sure to use promo code OXYLDN03 at checkout to save $5.

Thermos’ stainless steel vacuum-insulated can coolers have been a huge hit with our readers over the years, and today, you can get a 4-pack for just $24. Individually, these never get cheaper than about $8, so this is a great deal if you don’t mind sharing. They’re even color-coded, so you won’t catch any cooties by grabbing your friend’s drink. You may recall this deal from Prime Day, but today’s price is actually $1 cheaper.

Sugru is right up there with binder clips and the Raspberry Pi in Lifehacker’s pantheon of must-have gear, and you can stock up today with eight black and white packs from Amazon for just $12, the best price Amazon’s ever listed.

You might not have an immediate need for a pack of multicolored Sharpies, but they’re great to keep stocked in your home office, and Amazon’s currently selling a 24-pack of ultra fine tips for $10, which is about as cheap as you’ll ever see them.

Update: Back in stock, if you missed out yesterday.



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 Go is Amazon’s top-selling egg cooker, and carries a truly stellar 4.5 star review average from nearly 4,000 customers, so get it while it’s on sale for its best price in months.

Naipo Memory Foam Lumbar Pillow, $9 with code NPLD26HF

As a rule, most seats you spend time in during the day don’t have enough lumbar support, but that’s easy to fix with this $9 cushion.

Top Lifestyle Deals

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but it’s pretty hot outside! Luckily, Amazon’s coming to the rescue with a big one-day sale on Intex inflatables for your pool, your local river, or whatever body of water you can find.



You could blow up your own family wading pool for under $20, grab a bottle of champagne and make like Johnny Football on an inflatable swan for $14, or or tube down your nearest river for the same price.

There are over a dozen inflatables available in this sale, and with the exception of an inflatable playhouse, they all cost under $20 today. This deal is only available today though, so stock up while the sun’s shining.

Gap Polo Shirt, $6 with codes EXTRA and SHIP

We don’t often post deals on individual articles of clothing, but why not buy a Gap polo shirt for $6 with free shipping. It’s not even, like, infected with lice or anything, to the best of our knowledge. Just use codes EXTRA to get the discount, and SHIP for free shipping.

Magicfly Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor, $16 with code UMNPC5LC

Think your blood pressure’s been higher than usual this year, for some unknown reason? Keep an eye on it with this $16 cuff, which can store your last 90 readings in memory to help you keep track of changes over time.

Nike runs 20% discounts on their clearance section with some regularity, but discounts on full-priced items are much less common. Save 20% on nearly everything they sell that’s not already on sale (see all the exclusions here) with promo code 20BTS on orders over $100, plus free shipping when you sign up for a free account.

TriggerPoint’s GRID foam rollers are the most popular on the market, and Amazon just discounted the 13″ extra firm model to $21. That’s an all-time low, so limber up your buying muscles, and go get it.

While not quite as small as some of our favorite minimalist wallets, the new Swift Wallet is well-built and has a ton of features, and you can get it for about $70 by preordering.



First, let’s talk cards. The Swift Wallet features four RFID-protected card slots (each of which can hold about three cards comfortably, an exterior coin/card pocket that’s purposely notRFID-protected for contactless payment cards, and a few small interior pockets for business cards.

The Swift’s claim to fame though is its unique cash slot. Your bills sit behind the card holders on either side of the wallet’s interior, meaning you can swipe a thumb up the middle of the wallet to slide bills out with ease.

I know Kickstarter projects can occasionally go pear-shaped, but the team behind Swift has successfully delivered on three previous wallet Kickstarters, and they sent me a demo unit to check out as well, so I don’t think you have much to worry about here.

Philips OneBlade Pro, $66 | With two extra blades, $81 after $10 coupon

The Philips OneBlade is the shaver of choice for our entire staff (except Jillian), and one of the most popular products we’ve ever listed, but Philips recently raised the bar with the release of the OneBlade Pro, and Amazon’s running one of the first discounts we’ve seen on it to date.

First, let’s talk about what’s unchanged from the original OneBlade. The Pro still uses the same blades which last for four months (or most likely longer, if you aren’t using it every day), it still works in any direction, you can still use it with or without shaving cream, and it’s still water resistant, so you can use it in the shower without fear.



The biggest difference you’ll notice out of the box is the Pro’s adjustable 14-length comb, compared to the three static combs included with the standard OneBlade. That gives you more flexibility to groom your beard just so, and makes it a lot easier to achieve a smooth fade, if that’s what you’re going for. It’s also fewer parts to keep track of.

The other big difference is the battery. It’s lithium-ion this time around, so it lasts twice as long as the original OneBlade (90 minutes vs. 45), recharges eight times as fast (one hour vs. eight), and the built-in LED screen now shows you how much juice you have left, so you’ll know whether you need to pack your charger for trips.

Are these upgrades worth the standard $80 price tag, compared to the original’s $35? Personaly, I don’t think so. But as a happy OneBlade owner, I’m awfully tempted to upgrade for $66, especially since that would get me an extra blade which would normally cost around $15.

Update: For $15 more (the price of one replacement blade), you can get a bundle that includes two extra blades. Just be sure to clip the $10 coupon on the product page.

Dorco Pace 7 + 10 Cartridges, $14 with code KINJA724A

Dorco, the best deal in razor blades, is offering an insane discount on their seven-blade (yes, seven) Pace 7 razors today. Just use promo code KINJA724A at checkout, and you’ll get the handle and 10 cartridges for just $14, plus free shipping. Your stubble won’t stand a chance.

Zappos is basically a one-stop shoe destination already, but right now, they’re having an actual sale, something they haven’t done in years. Grab discounted shoes from Cole Haan, Brooks, Nike, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, and more for men and women. And, if you’re part of their rewards program, get 3x the points on the over 40,000 items on sale.

33% off Smartwool socks with code SMARTWOOL

Smartwool easily socked it to the competition when it came to finding out what your favorite everyday socks are, and with good reason: they’re kind of awesome. The downside to their awesomeness is they’re on the pricey side. But right now, use the code SMARTWOOL and get 33% off any three pairs of Smartwool socks on Just add your three favorites to the cart, enter the code, and get ready for warm feet.

Note: This deal was briefly available last week, but now it’s here for real.

If you’ve never checked out Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, what are you even doing on Kinja Deals? The retailer puts thousands of fall and winter styles, plus Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives, on sale way before they go into the stores. Once the sale is over, you’ll only be able to get them for full price, so you’d better get on it. The sale lasts until August 6th.

Top Media Deals

Amazon’s running a rare mid-week Kindle ebook Gold Box, and the theme is “Award Winners,” which is a pretty good place to start looking for new summer reads.



Inside, you’ll find three dozen New York Times Best Sellers, National Book Award finalists & winners, and Pulitzer prize-winning titles, all marked down to $4 or less. I suggest reading your picks on a new pool float.

The Expanse was io9’s favorite TV show of 2016, and the book that inspired the first season is just $3 on Kindle right now.

Amazon always offers a free one-month trial of its Audible audiobook service, but for a limited time, they’re also tossing in an extra free book credit to sweeten the pot. That’s in addition to the book you normally get with the trial, and each credit is valid for any title in the Audible library. The best part? The books you choose are yours to keep, even if you cancel the trial before it renews.



Just note that this deal is only valid for new Audible members only.

Top Gaming Deals

Pandemic Legacy is a co-op board game that raises the stakes by adding permanent (actually permanent) changes to the board as you play, and it’s amazing. It also happens to be marked down to $35 on Amazon today, within a buck of an all-time low.

Note: The blue version is also on sale for $1 more. Both of these products are the same game, just with different color schemes, allowing you to keep two games going at once without getting confused.

Pyreis part fantasy RPG, part basketball, and all fun. $2 off its usual $20 isn’t a huge discount by any means, but if you were going to buy it for your PS4 anyway (and you should!), it’s a decent little deal considering the game is still brand new.

There have been a few deals on Catan lately, but $29 is about as low as it gets. Bug customer support enough, and they might even sell it to you for two bricks and a wheat.

As someone who paid $500 for an Xbox One on launch day—and that’s without any games—these deals make me want to cry a little bit. Get a 500GB Minecraft console bundle for $200, or a 1TB Battlefield 1 bundle for $240.

Humble’s new Saints Row Bundle features—you guessed it—a bunch of Saints Row games. But you’ll also find other Deep Silver titles scattered among the various tiers, including a few Homefront games, Mighty No. 9, Killer Is Dead, and more.

I imagine most of you have played at least one or two of Telltale’s choice-driven narrative games, but the newest Humble Bundle is a great excuse to try out more.



Just $1 gets you a lot of the studio’s earlier work, including the first season of The Walking Dead, paying more than the average unlocks the likes of Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands, while $15 gets you Batman and Minecraft: Story Mode. As always, a portion of the proceeds go to charity, so make the choice to buy this bundle; you won’t regret the consequences.
