You named the iOttie One Touch your favorite smartphone car mount last year, and today both the standard and XL models are marked down to $13 on Amazon.

Today’s Amazon Gold Box deal purports to be “travel accessories,” but really it’s just full of great deals on gear and gadgets you could use anyway.

It’s tough to beat a 1TB portable hard drive for $50, but if you double the price, you’ll get one with Wi-Fi, which allows mobile devices to access its contents. The $13 travel router can come in handy at conferences and hotel rooms with spotty Wi-Fi, and the $18 Bluetooth speakers come in multiple colors, and are cheap enough to buy on a lark.

That’s all just the beginning though, so check out the full list, and remember, these prices are only available today, or until sold out. [Amazon]

If your wiper blades are starting to streak, Amazon’s offering a pair of Bosch Insight Blades for just $22 today. All you have to do is pick the two you want, add them to your cart, and you’ll see the discount at checkout. You can even mix and match sizes, so you can almost certainly find a combination that will work for your car. [Two Bosch Insight Wiper Blades, $22]

Note: The discount will only work on blades shipped and sold by Amazon directly. No third party sellers.

From commenter NorthEast:

Two years ago, my Valvoline oil change place offered my these blades. I was skeptical, but knowing Bosch is a large supplier of the industry, I gave them a try. Never had a better blade. Been through 2 winters with them and they’re not torn and still perform like they did on day 1, two years ago. However; I am taking you guys up on this deal. Thanks for adverting this one!

Not only will these $9 work gloves protect your from blisters and splinters; they’ll actually deflect blades away from your skin with EN388 Level 5 cut resistance and Level 4 abrasion and tear strength resistance. That’s not to say you should go juggling chainsaws with them, but they can save you from nasty cuts while you prepare food or prune trees. [Ohuhu CE Level 5 Protection Cut Resistant Gloves, $9 with code EH3TFB32]

We post a lot of car charger deals, but I think this is the first one I’ve seen with a built-in convertible microUSB/Lightning cable, along with two additional USB ports. That’s perfect if you share a car with someone who uses a different kind of phone. [Bolse 3-Port (25W / 5A) Car Charger with Built-in 2-in-1 Lightning & Micro USB Cable, $13 with code ST76OSWR]

If you don’t own any of these little Cree LED flashlights, you really should. They’re unbelievably bright given their small size, feature a zoomable lens so you can focus the beam, work in heavy rain, and can run on a standard AA battery.

You might not have an immediate use in mind, but this is one of those buy once, use forever types of purchases. [Zoomable 700 Lumen CREE Q5 LED Flashlight, $6]

The humble Raspberry Pi has been inspiring clever hacks for years, and whether you’re new to the Pi or just want to upgrade your original model, we’ve found a great deal on the new (and much-improved) Raspberry Pi 2.

The $75 starter kit comes with the Pi and everything you need to get started with it, including (but not limited to):

  • A case
  • 8GB microSD card preloaded with NOOB
  • Power supply
  • HDMI cable
  • Wi-Fi dongle
  • Breadboard with jumper wires, resistors, and buttons
  • LED bulbs
  • 200 page user guide with starter projects

[Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (1GB) Ultimate Starter Kit, $75 with code JDLOT3QO]

If you need some inspiration, Lifehacker has written approximately 17 billion articles on the Pi, including a beginner’s guide, instructions to turn it into a retro gaming console, and a ton of other fun project ideas to get you started.

Whether you like to go camping in the deep wilderness or just want to feel like a badass every time you open your new shipment of kitchen sponges from Amazon, this highly-rated Gerber multitool is a fantastic deal. Today’s $8 price tag is an all-time low, and well below its usual $10-1$15 range. [Gerber Bear Grylls Multitool, $8]

Update: Code is having some issues, we’ll let you know when it gets resolved

This HooToo gadget is actually three devices in one:

  • Travel Router: Turn any ethernet jack you find into a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can still come in handy at certain hotels and conventions.
  • 10,400mAh USB Battery Pack: Keep your phone and tablet charged during a long day away from any power outlets.
  • File Hub: Transfer files and wirelessly stream content from an USB hard drive, or flash drive to all of your devices. Imagine loading a cheap flash drive up with movies for a long trip, instead of, say, buying an expensive iPad with more local storage.

All of those are ideal use cases for travelers, and since it’s an all-in-one solution, it’ll save space in your bag. [HooToo TripMate HT-TM05 Wireless Router for Travel 10400mAh External Battery Charger Power Bank, $44 with code URTP8HJW]

If you only need the travel router part of the equation, there’s a $13 model available today as part of a Gold Box deal. [TP-LINK TL-WR702N Wireless N150 Travel Router, Nano Size, $13]

Motion-sensing LED night lights have been the surprise hit of 2015 here on Kinja Deals, and we’ve got another great deal on one of the most popular models today.

$10 gets you a single OxyLED T-02 motion sensing light with promo code Y9T7C747. If you need more than one (they work great in closets and cabinets too, not just hallways), you can save more by buying in bulk. Just use the correct promo code:

  • One for $10 with code Y9T7C747
  • Two for $19 with code W9H6NJY9
  • Three for $27 with code T2H9JE2L

Just add however many you want into your cart, and add the code at checkout for your discount. [OxyLED T-02 DIY Stick-on Anywhere 10-LED Wireless Motion Sensing Light]

Samsung’s 850 EVO SSD is the most popular SSD on the market, and the beefy 1TB model dropped over $40 overnight down to $336, an all-time low on Amazon. [Samsung 850 EVO 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD, $336]

I can’t say I’d ever heard of this particular electric can opener before today, but it has solid reviews, and is priced at $10 less than it’s previous low, and about $20 under its usual price. It’s also available in multiple colors. [Chef’s Star Smooth Edge Automatic Can Opener, $15]

Nobody knows for sure if the Twin Peaks reboot will happen, or if it will be any good without David Lynch if it does. <Sigh> At least we have the original, marked down to within a few pennies of its all time low price today. [Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, $75]

Now that The Witcher 3 has a glowing Kirk Hamilton review under its belt, I’d say it’s officially safe to preorder if you haven’t already. It’s not a huge discount, but Amazon is selling PS4 digital downloads for $54 today, which is the best deal you’re likely to see on the console version between now and May 19. [Preorder The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [Digital Code], $54]

We see plenty of bundle deals on the Xbox One, but if your objective is to spend the smallest amount of money possible, this deal is tough to beat. No tax for most. [Xbox One Halo: The Master Chief Collection Bundle, $300]

Depending on your priorities, Dell’s bundle that we mentioned yesterday might be a better bet. Just make sure you see the $100 promo gift card in your cart when you check out. [Xbox One + 3 Games + $100 Promo Gift Card, $380]

Monoprice is offering another 10% off sitewide sale, and the belle of the ball is definitely the Monoprice Crystal Pro 28” 4K monitor for $400 with code PREM10. That’s one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for a 60Hz 4K display, and a great buy if your computer can support it. I did a lot of personal research into this monitor a few months back, and was one discount away from pulling the trigger before a deal on a Dell alternative caught my eye. [Monoprice CrystalPro 28” 4K Monitor, $400 with code PREM10]

The same PREM10 promo code will work sitewide, so if you need any cables, speakers, keyboards, action cameras, or other peripherals, today’s a good day to stock up. [Monoprice]

If you’re in the market for a reliable portable hard drive, the ever-popular WD My Passport Ultra 2TB is back down to $80 right now, matching an all-time low. [Western Digital My Passport Ultra Black 2 TB, $80]

If you own an Android device, Amazon’s offering another one of their signature app deals today. This time around, you can get any or all of 38 different apps worth over $110 combined absolutely free. My favorites in the bunch are Star Command and Telltale’s Game of Thrones (Episode 1), but be sure to check out the full list. [Amazon’s FREE Android App Sale]

It’s a USB battery pack made of wood! That’s so cool! And $10 is a solid price for a 3,000mAh pack anyway, so you won’t even need to feel like you’re paying a premium for the looks. [Baytek Wooden 3,000mAh USB Battery Pack, $10 with code AP87DCFY]

There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about this external battery pack, except the price. $13 is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen for a ~10,000mAh pack. [Lumsing 10400mAh External Battery Pack, $13 with code EDMMYN8V]
