Most 8,000mAh portable battery chargers sell for around $20, and Monoprice is selling theirs today for $11.69.
Charges up to 2 devices at once.
Has 2-amp total output, so it can charge 2 phones or 1 tablet.
- Amcrest Surveillance Camera $51 (expired)
Amcrest IP2M-841W (White color) Surveillance Camera with Remote-Controlled Pan/Tilt for $51 currently.
This white-color model has been rarely priced under $60, but the black model has been on sale for $41 to $50 a few times over the last few weeks.
We like the white model, because it matches the color of our walls, hiding the camera more than the black does.
The software has a lot of features, including controlling the pan & tilt from a phone, and 2-way communication.
It does take a while to figure out all the settings, since the documentation is fairly poor and the software has a lot of menus.
So, this is more of a camera for hackers who want to tweak settings to their liking, versus a Nest or Arlo camera which are a lot easier.
We had one 3-year old Amcrest IP2M-841W that died recently, so keep in mind, there are a lot of cheap surveillance cameras priced about the same.
Shop around before buying.
We still like the Amcrest brand because of the tweakable settings and ability to store images and videos on a private FTP server, but the camera's build quality will not be better than many other China-made cameras.
3-Pack TP-Link HS100 Wifi Smart Plugs for $33.25 ($11.10 each) when applying coupon code SMARTNGY3 in the cart.
Normally $15 each or $27 for 2.
We have one connected to a surveillance camera that sometimes drops off Wifi, and needs to be power cycled.
Rather than climb a ladder to unplug and plug in the camera's power cable, the TP-Link app can cycle the power from a smartphone.
Other people use a Wifi smart plug to boil water in an electric kettle or make toast at a certain time in the morning.
- TCL 65" 4K TV with HDR and Roku for $720
Electronic Express, a popular online electronics retailer that sells on Rakuten, Newegg, and eBay, is selling a TCL 65-inch 4K TV with HDR and Roku for $720.
To get the deal, add one to the cart for $820.
Sign-in to an account (do not checkout as a guest), and start the checkout.
On the page which asks for a credit card number, apply coupon code EE100 to get $100 off.
TCL makes great quality TVs with stunning HDR, at a cheaper price than others.
Our 55-inch TCL 55S405 has been a great upgrade from a 1080p since we bought it 15 months ago.
It's still priced at $350, same price we bought it for, and still an excellent value compared to other similar 55-inch TVs.
Even though the 65-inch is a better TV, the 55-inch may be a better value for most people.
