HDTV bias lights are nothing new to our readers, but with three length options, 15 color modes, a color-changing fade setting, and two different control inputs, Luminoodle is probably the most polished option out there.
For a limited time, you can choose from all three lengths (there’s a guide to help you pick on the product page) for 25% off with promo code M89UHFGT. If you aren’t familiar, these ease eyestrain when watching TV at night, improve your TV’s perceived contrast, and just look really cool. Needless to say, this would make for a creative holiday gift as well.
For a limited time, Amazon’s offering BOGO 50% off 80 different Nerf guns and accessories, as long as they’re both shipped and sold by Amazon.com directly. So what are you still doing here?
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerCore battery packs run the gamut from tiny tubes that fit into your pocket to massive blocks of energy that can power your devices for days at a time. Today’s deal focuses very clearly on the latter.
The PowerCore+ 26800 is one of the few battery packs on the market with USB-C Power Delivery up to 27W. That means it can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, a Nintendo Switch at full power while you’re playing Zelda on a plane, or an iPad Pro significantly faster than the charger it came with (if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable).
Power Delivery works both ways too, so you can actually recharge the entire battery pack in just 4.5 hours with the included 27W USB-C wall charger, compared to over 11 hours with a standard 2A USB charger. When you’re trying to juice up before a flight, every minute counts.
The PowerCore+ also includes two high speed standard USB ports that you can use simultaneously, which is good, because this thing has enough power to share. We had a hands on with the pack when it launched back in April, and you can see our impressions here.
This battery almost always sells for $110, and $87 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
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 to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017, or this link to get three years for $99 with code 3ydeal. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!
The Logitech Harmony Hub is one of the best Alexa-compatible accessories out there, and it basically comes with a free Echo Dot right now.
If you aren’t familiar, the Harmony Hub is a little puck that blasts out RF signals like a TV remote to control all of your devices (Logitech’s database has nearly 300,000; it’s pretty comprehensive). Normally, this would work with a Harmony remote to control devices that are hidden behind cabinet doors, but it’ll also work with just your voice if you own an Alexa device.
So, for example, you could say “Alexa, turn on the TV” to turn on your TV, change to the correct input, turn on your cable box, or whatever else you programmed it to do. The same holds true for your smartphone; just open the Harmony app, and you’ll have full control over your entire home theater.
The Harmony Hub costs about $90 on Amazon (though it’s sometimes bundled with a barebones remote for about $70), but right now, that same amount of money will get you the Hub and an Echo Dot to control it. Or, if you already have all the Echoes you need, just give the Dot away as a holiday gift, and keep the Hub for yourself.
The ultimate gift for the person who has everything is 25% off for the first time ever today with promo code JXRW4K5Q.
Power Practical’s Sparkr is a 400 lumen flashlight, an LED camping lantern, and a badass plasma lighter all rolled into one. I suspect you’re most interested in the third item on that list, so let’s dive in:
Just press one button, and an electric arc forms on the backside of of the flashlight that can light small items on fire, even in the wind. This spark is created with the same battery that powers the light, so unlike a traditional lighter, there’s no butane required. That makes it handy for camping, backyard s’mores nights, or just lighting candles around the house. Plus, it’s just cool as hell, nobody denies this.
Having the proper footwear is the difference between spending the day working and spending the day in the Emergency Room. If you’ve been living dangerously lately, why not invest in a pair of work boots that won’t have you fighting for workers’ comp? Amazon is marking down work and safety boots to under $100, but it’s today only, so you should probably get to work.
At $8 per month for Prime members, Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot for new members by offering three months for just $1, for a limited time.
This is one of the best deals they’ve ever offered on the service, so if you haven’t signed up for Music Unlimited before, what’s $.33 per month to try it out?
Update: Calphalon roasting pan is already sold out, but they still have good deals on other kitchen essentials.
Thanksgiving is next Thursday so if you’re in need of cooking tools to get the job done, Amazon is here to help you out today. The stand out product in this Gold Box is the Calphalon Roasting Pan with rack. Normally selling for around $70, this pan is just $29 after you clip the coupon.
Giant plugs that cover up half the outlets on your power strip should be outlawed, but until that day arrives, these short extension cords will have to do. $14 gets you a pack of 10, which should be enough for even the most advanced home theater setups.
