Anker PowerCore II Slim 10000, $28 with code SLIMQUIK
The PowerCore II Slim appears to be the first PowerCore battery pack to include Anker’s new chipset, which delivers the fastest possible charging speeds to every USB device you own, including Quick Charge 3.0. That said, you’ll notice it’s not actually a Qualcomm-certified Quick Charge 3.0 product; it just replicates the tech on Anker’s own chip. That means less internal circuitry, and more room for battery, resulting in one of the thinnest 10,000-mAh battery packs ever made.
Aukey SoundTank Bluetooth speaker, $33 with code AUKEYSK3
If you demand a lot out of your Bluetooth speakers, this discounted Aukey SoundTank might be just what you’re looking for.
Very few Bluetooth speakers can run for 30 hours on a charge, never mind ones that cost $33. This model is also splash-proof, and features dual 5W drivers, meaning it should be loud enough for most occasions indoors or out. Just be sure to use promo code AUKEYSK3 at checkout to save $12.
If you want a Big Green Egg charcoal grill, but don’t want to cash in your 401(k) to buy one, this Char-Griller alternative is down to $270 on Amazon today. That’s the lowest price in months, and a great investment for meat lovers everywhere.
The Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker features a 306-square-inch cast-iron cooking surface (which is most similar to the $829 large Big Green Egg), and traps heat inside a heavily insulated stainless steel body. Our deal researcher, Corey, owns a BGE, and I asked him about it on Slack:
And I use my BGE for about 70% of meat meals.
Probably 90% during the warm months.
Best Father’s Day gift I’ll ever get.
Lana jokes that she’s the one who benefits most because I cook on it all the time.
Worth the price just for its ability to cook pizza, IMO.
But pork chops, lions, tenderloin are beyond incredible on it.
Obviously, this isn’t the “real thing,” but the consensus among Amazon reviewers is that it’s at least nearly as good, which sounds like a decent compromise considering it’s less than one-third of the price, and comes with a stable cart and folding shelves, both of which you’d need to buy separately with the Egg.
Cotton is one of the softest things you can sleep on, but it comes at a price. Amazon is thankfully helping you out there with its sale on 100 percent cotton, 1,000-thread-count sheets from EL&ES Bedding Collections. Grab a queen set for $71 or a king (and California king) for $79, with your choice from seven different colors. While you’re going to want to sleep on these sheets, don’t sleep on this deal because it ends today.
Joule White sous-vide circulator, $159 with code SOUSVIDETIME
Stainless steel model available for $20 more
Anova dominates the sales charts, but in many ways (raw heating power, looks, size, software quality), the Joule sous-vide circulator is actually the superior product, and Amazon’s running a rare $20 discount on it, for a limited time.
Promo code SOUSVIDETIME will take $20 off the original Joule white/stainless steel and the new all-white. The white model is $20 cheaper to begin with, the only difference being the absence of steel accents; performance should be identical.
If you don’t have any idea what the hell I’m talking about or why you might want to buy this, Lifehacker has a great sous-vide explainer here. Spoiler alert: It’s incredibly simple, and the results are fantastic.
