APC (BE350G) 350VA Battery Backup/UPS for $30.
Good to protect a single computer, network gear, a DVR, or a fish tank's filter from a brief power outage.
If you are looking to protect more than one computer or have the battery last for more than 10 minutes, consider a UPS with a higher VA number.
Beware of some Ebay sellers offering cheaper versions of this, which could be older models with a lower battery lifespan than a new one.

TP-Link Smart Power Outlet Plug for $28.

This is the HS110 model that lets you turn on/off the power plug from your smartphone or tablet, and monitors the energy usage.
We have the HS100 model which works similarly, without the energy usage monitoring.
It works really well when there is a device you want to turn on/off from power, without physically unplugging it.

- Butane Stove $17 for Prime Members Only
Coleman Butane Instastart Stove for $17 for Amazon Prime members only.
Price is $26 for everyone else.
It is designed for camping.
It has mostly positive reviews, though some people say it is somewhat small and cheaply made.
Although it looks like a great value for the price, especially since other similar ones sell for about double this price.
Anker 2nd Generation Astro E5 16,750 Portable USB Battery Charger for $24.69 today.
Normally at least $30, though has sometimes been on sale for $25 over the last few months.
At 11 ounces (about 0.7 pounds), it may be a little too heavy to carry in a pocket, but can be very handy in a backpack or purse.
Anker has created portable battery chargers longer than most other companies, but there are a lot of other similar products (such as this one that now cost less.
Be sure to compare the weight of battery packs, since most are heavier than Anker products.
We have brought an older Anker Astro on several trips, and enjoy keeping our mobile devices charged at airports and in vehicles without worrying about finding a power outlet.

The Eve Mattress in Twin, in Queen, or in King size for $600, $680, and $760 respectively with free shipping.

- LG 55" OLED 1080p Curved HDTV for $1100 (expired)
LG (55EG9100) 55-inch 1080p OLED Curved Smart HDTV for $1100 with free delivery.
This is $200 less than normal.
OLED is a new screen technology that independently lights each pixel, allowing a sharper image than a regular LED-lit LCD screen.
OLED is similar to the old Plasma TVs, which can make each pixel perfectly black, something LED/LCD screens cannot do.
Unlike Plasma though, OLED screens consume very little energy.

- Ooma Telo Home Phone System with Handset $90
Ooma Telo Home Phone System for $90.
That is about normal price, but Amazon is also throwing in a HD2 handset for free (normally about $50).
Ooma gives home telephone service free for life, or at least how long Ooma stays in business.
Note that 911 emergency service is different than 911 on a normal phone.
Read their details on this.
- Mini 3D Printer for $200 (expired: price raised)
Saturday, August 20, 2016
- Thinkpad T450 14" Laptop for $500
It's a business-grade laptop computer.
We like the durability of Lenovo laptops, and this model can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM when installing two 8GB SO-DIMM DDR3 1600Mhz modules (about $62).
In our opinion, the Kindle is one of the best eBook readers on the market.
The design is simple and lightweight,
and consumes very little energy.
A single battery charge can last weeks.
Our favorite part is the true LCD screen, which does not have any backlighting.
Staring at anything with a backlight, like a computer screen, phone or tablet screen, or television is the same thing as staring at a light bulb.
These can cause eyestrain, a medical condition that can give headaches and effect eyesight, especially with prolonged use in low-light rooms.
The Kindle does not use a backlight.
Amazon has posted another set of deals on backpacks today, this time Osprey brand.
These are mostly school backpacks and daypacks, with sale prices ranging from $32 to $130.
Osprey makes good quality bags.

- Backpacks for $30 to $60
These backpacks are good for traveling and carrying to/from classes, and normally sell for about $5 to $15 more.
Silicon Power S55 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive for $47 tonight.
This uses a newer "TLC" memory cell type.
It is very fast, but not as reliable as a regular SSD.
While this one does have positive reviews, some have been known to fail after just a few months.
Other than for use as a temporary drive or spare computer, we recommend avoiding TLC-based drives for now.
Only available to those who pay for Amazon Prime, a $99/year membership.
- Inteset Universal Remote Control for Streaming Devices $20 with Prime (expired)
Only available with Amazon Prime today.
We bought this remote for $25 when on sale last year, and love it.
Works about as well as a $50+ Logitech remote.
For comparison, a Logitech Harmony Smart Control can control the same devices as the Inteset (8 devices instead of 4), but costs much more than the Inteset.
Granted the Logitech also includes an app, but these days, your mobile phone and tablet may give you the same home control features using a Simple Control app.
While more people switch from cable TV to streaming services, it is good to see a new affordable universal remote controls compatible with streaming devices.
They also just released an IR Repeater/Extender for $26, for controlling your devices behind a cabinet or wall.
- Deals Today for Prime Members
Today is their Prime Day, where hundreds of items are on sale for Amazon Prime members only.
is $99 per year, and has a free 1-month trial for new members.
Some deals worth mentioning, that are only available for Prime members.
Some deals are only available for 1-4 hours, and may expire soon after this posting.
Insta Pot IP-DUO60 6qt Pressure Cooker for $70 with Prime only.
We purchased it for the same price when it was on sale during Black Friday last year, and love it.
We call it our "kitchen robot" since healthy food can be made super easy.
Brown rice and potatoes cook in one-third the time, and soups taste incredible.
If you want to get more into healthy cooking, I cannot recommend anything better than this (except maybe the Bluetooth/App version which costs a bit more).
(Expired)Asus RT-N12 Wireless Router for $20.
Normally at least $28.
We had a more expensive Asus router (model RT-N66U) which broke in a month.
(Expired)TP-Link 5-Port Gigabit Managed Switch for $23.
Sometimes on sale for $25, normally sold for $30.
We have one, and it works fairly well.
Can log in to the switch with downloadable software, view network statistics, and do basic management features like forcing ports to certain speeds.
Gunnar Optiks Computer Glasses for $40 to $45.
We used one for a while, and it does help prevent eyestrain (headaches) when staring at a bright screen for long periods of time.
However it alone is not fully effective.
Only frequent breaks, eye exercises, low screen brightness and lots of ambient light can truly prevent eyestrain.
Kmashi 10,000mAh Portable Battery Charger for $11.
Weighs 0.6 pounds.
Reviews say it does not have pass-through charging, so it cannot charge your devices while its internal battery is charging.
This is a big downside, in our opinion.
- Prime Day
If you an Amazon Prime member, they are celebrating their annual Prime Day today.
These deals are exclusively for Prime members only, and they have sales in almost every category.
If today is anything like last year's Prime Day, it will be somewhat of a letdown.
Other than more Lightning Deals throughout the day, and a few promotions on gift cards, last year's Prime Day had only a couple deals worth noticing.
We will post deals throughout the day if we find any.

Amazon's Prime Day Tomorrow:
Amazon has been advertising their Prime day on their website, on TV, and through an email campaign.
Here is what we know about it:
It is only available for Amazon Prime members ($99/year fee).
There will be "100,000 deals exclusively for Prime members," according to their website.
They say it will be a full day of deals, "with new deals starting as often as every five minutes."
Last year's Prime day had a few good promotions but nothing that great, in our opinion.
It was like any other day shopping on Amazon, with more Lightning deals than normal but not huge discounts like there are around Black Friday and other times of the year.
There will definitely be deals, especially some dollar-back promotions like "buy $60 in a category, get a $20 Amazon gift card."
Amazon Kindles should be on sale, and a lot of Kindle Books are expected to have big savings.
Don't stay up late or go out of your way hoping to find incredible deals.
Check the deals on your schedule, and see what you like.
July to mid-August are the slowest online shopping days of the year.
Advertising is also cheap this time of year, since most Americans spend more time outdoors than shopping online.
Amazon is hoping to tap into the impulsive buyer crowd by creating a "Prime Day," but it sounds more like a marketing campaign to boost sales during a slow season.

- Lord of the Rings Trilogy on Blu-Ray $27
Normally about $85.
- 6000mAh Portable Battery Charger for $3 (expired: sold out)

On the final checkout page (before submitting your order), enter promo code 9GET2VDL to get $11.17 off of your order
Final price $3.
Free shipping with a $49+ order, or free with Prime membership.
The reviews are mixed, so this deal is a little risky.
People say it does not charge at 2-amps as advertised, so it could have trouble charging tablets.
Others say theirs stopped working soon after using it.
When traveling or relying on something to keep your phone charged, you probably want something reliable.
There have been some reliable 10,000mAh battery charger deals for about $11 to $15 over the last few months, and we recommend them over a cheap one that may brake soon after you buy it.
- 200-Pack of Tealight Candles for $10 (expired)
Free shipping with a $49+ order, or with Prime.
Normally at least $20.

- Cyberpower 1000VA UPS for $85
Cyberpower 1000VA UPS for $85 today.
A UPS protects sensitive equipment from power spikes, surges, and outages. Useful for protecting computers whose hard drives and circuits can be damaged by power fluctuations, for protecting a home theater system, and for protecting a fish tank's filter from a power outage that cause harm to fish.
We have a Cyberpower 1500VA UPS protecting the power of an expensive file server with 9 hard drives and a desktop computer since December of 2011. We rarely have any power issues, but feel comfortable knowing our sensitive computers are protected. It is still going strong after 4.5 years.
