Anker PowerHouse, $330

Anker has continued its inexorable march toward producing anything that includes a battery with the gargantuan PowerHouse electric “generator,” and you can save $170 on yours for a limited time, the best price ever by $70.

“Generator” is in scare quotes because you can’t readily use the PowerHouse to generate electricity, unless you buy additional solar panels. Instead, it’s basically a gigantic lithium-ion battery that can power everything from mini-fridges to laptops to televisions to emergency medical equipment for hours on end.

There are a few similar products on the market, most notably Goal Zero’s Yeti 400, but those use heavy lead-acid batteries (the Yeti weighs 29 pounds), rather than lithium-ion like the 9.3-pound PowerHouse.

This thing could easily be used as an alternative to a noisy gas generator for tailgating, or you could just keep it charged and at the ready for power outages at home. It’s definitely an investment at its $500 list price, but for a limited time, it’s down to $330.

Roku Premiere+, $79

Roku’s Premiere+ is one of the only streaming boxes in town capable of playing HDR 4K video at 60 FPS, and at $79, it’s by far the cheapest. That’s the best price Amazon’s ever offered on this model, so if it’s been on your wish list, don’t hesitate.


Sonos Play:1, $180

We’ve seen bigger Sonos Play:1 deals before, but generally speaking, discounts are few and far between. The Play:1 is the smallest member of the Sonos family, but it still sounds fantastic, and you can even link two of them together as a stereo pair.


Jackery Bolt, $28 with code QLYMXNPX

USB battery packs are basically expensive paperweights if you don’t have a cable handy to actually plug them into your phone, but that’ll never be an issue with the Jackery Bolt, which includes built-in Lightning and microUSB cables, in addition to a USB port.


Eufy HomeVac, $104; Eufy HomeVac Duo, $90

Anker, purveyor of a lot of our reader-favorite charging gear, also makes really popular cordless vacuum cleaners (under their Eufy sub-brand), and both models are on sale today for the best prices we’ve seen in quit some time.

Most of you will probably want to opt for the HomeVac Duo, which runs for up to an hour on a charge and features a detachable hand vac for cleaning furniture, your car, and other hard-to-reach places. Today’s $90 deal is a solid $20 discount off what you’d normally pay.

If you place a premium on sheer vacuuming power, the newer HomeVac features stronger suction and a larger dust bin, though it lacks the Duo’s versatile two-in-one design. Still, it’s $26 less than usual.

WeMo Mini Smart Plug, $30

Not only is the new WeMo Mini Smart Plug smaller than the top-selling original so as to only cover one outlet, it’s also cheaper. You’ll almost always see it available for $35, but today on Amazon, it’s knocked down to $30.

Despite its diminutive size, this includes all the same features as the full-size WeMo Switch, including IFTTT support, Alexa compatibility, and an Away mode that will randomize your lights to deter ne’er-do-wells.
