The SoundBuds Slim are, as you might have gleaned from the name, far smaller than the originals. Heck, they look like a small set of wired earbuds; you might never guess there were batteries and Bluetooth radios in there. Despite the size, these buds are still rated for seven hours of battery life, and recharge fully in just 90 minutes.

If the power at your house can be a little spotty, this $41 APC backup UPS is designed specifically to keep your modem and router running on battery power, so you’ll never lose touch with the world. Today’s deal is an all-time low, so if you have any inkling that you might want this, I wouldn’t hesitate.
Inexpensive Wi-Fi security cameras have been around for awhile, but now, they pan and tilt too.
Today on Amazon, two different cameras are on sale for all-time low prices. Both pan and tilt via free smartphone apps, both include two-way intercom and night vision, and both will send you push notifications when they detect movement, and record to microSD cards. The biggest difference between them is that the ANNKE shoots 1080p, while the less expensive Yi is limited to 720p. You can’t go wrong either way, though.
$15 is a pretty good price for a 10,000mAh battery pack. It’s absolutely insane for one with a solar panel and 12-LED flashlight array. Obviously, that little solar panel won’t recharge the battery very quickly, but it can trickle charge it while you’re outdoors, so it’s nice to have.
4K monitors might be the new hotness, but QHD (2560×1440) is compatible with more computers, and still offers up enough resolution and screen real estate for just about everyone. This Lenovo model is only $150 today, and while it’s not IPS, it’s the best price we’ve ever seen on a non-refurbished QHD screen.
We’ve posted travel router deals before, but this is one of the smallest and least expensive we’ve seen to date.
If you aren’t familiar, this little box can take an ethernet connection and turn it into a private wireless network that multiple people can enjoy. You can also use it in bridge mode to re-broadcast an unsecured Wi-Fi signal with a password, and even plug in a flash drive and connect your mobile devices wirelessly to swap files. That really comes in handy if you’re on vacation, and your phone is running out of space to store photos.
The downside of a router this small is that it doesn’t have a built-in battery like some others we’ve seen, so you’ll either have to plug it into the wall or a USB battery pack with a microUSB cable.
An SSD is the best upgrade you can give your older computer, and Samsung’s 850 EVO line is the most popular one there is. A worldwide NAND shortage has reversed the previously inexorable downward price trend on these things over the past year or so, but today on Amazon, you can get a 500GB drive for $140, or 1TB for $300, the best prices Amazon’s listed in 2017.

Range extenders aren’t a cure-all for your home network, but if you have one or two spots in the house that just doesn’t get good reception, they’re an inexpensive way to fill in the gaps. This model from TP-Link has great reviews, and at $34 (after clipping the $10 coupon), it’s never been cheaper.

You know those cool 360 videos you’ve seen on YouTube, or even in a VR headset? All you need to make your own is the Samsung Gear 360, and it can be yours for an all-time low $82 today.
Even if you don’t have access to a helicopter or speed boat to capture truly jaw-dropping video, you could easily plop this thing into the middle of a party or get-together, and relive the whole thing in 360 degrees later. I wish I’d had one for my wedding.
We post a lot of deals on large USB battery packs, but more often than not, all you really need is a little bit of extra juice to get through a long day away from power outlets.
This 3350mAh RAVPower Luster battery is small enough to fit into pretty much any jeans pocket, and packs enough power to fully recharge an iPhone 7, or to give a significant boost to a larger phone. Get it for just $7 today with promo code KJAPB335.
Humble’s latest bundle features over 20 electronics and programming instructional books and magazines from Make:. As the publication’s name might suggest, most of these focus on teaching you how to make something, be it wearable electronics, Arduino inventions, or even drones. As always, you can name your own price, but the titles are spread across three different price tiers.
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 instead to get a special two year plan for $79 with code 2YSpecial2017. Lifehacker has recommended Nord in some previous guides, but if you have any firsthand experience with the service, sound off in the comments!

Iced coffee is a brilliant way to sell people ice for the price of coffee (which is mostly water to begin with). Cold brew on the other hand is a different process that results in less acidity, among other benefits, and you can do it yourself at home with this top-selling Takeya, now down to $18 on Amazon.
This non-coffee drinker bought one of these last year, and I’m absolutely in love with it. All you have to do is fill the basket with ground coffee, fill the container with water, and let it steep overnight in the fridge. The resulting coffee concentrate needs to be watered down, so one batch should last you several days.
Amazon’s listed slightly lower prices on a few occasions, but $18 is the best we’ve seen in several months, and ‘tis the season for cold coffee.
Hario’s popular V60 is a little work of art for your counter, and it makes damn good coffee too. Get it for an all-time low $11 on Amazon, before it sells out.
We’re living in a golden age of cleaning robots. This highly rated model from iLife is a vacuum and a mop for your hard floors. The water tank and mopping cloth are removable if you want to run it on carpets as well, so you can spend less time cleaning during the weekend, and more time watching football.
Dremels are best known for grinding things down, but they also make a 3D printer to build things up from scratch. The Dremel DigiLab 3D20 features 9.0 x 5.9 x 5.5 in build volume and solid reviews, and you can add it to your workshop for $499 today. That’s a decent chunk of change, but it’s a full $300 less than usual, and an all-time low.
Something seems off about Kindle edition cookbooks, but you can’t argue with these prices: Over 50 popular digital cookbooks are marked down to just a few bucks each today, including some of Mark Bittman’s essential How To Cook Everything titles, several slow cooker and pressure cooker-specific books, and of course, Will It Waffle?

Cuisinart’s Multiclad Pro cookware uses the same steel and aluminum triple-ply construction of All-Clad pans, but at $180 for a complete set, you can actually afford to buy them. That’s an all-time low for this collection, which rarely dips below $200. If you’re still using the $10 pans you bought when you moved into your first apartment, these are going to blow you away.

Typical leather belts aren’t ideal for outdoor adventuring, so if you want hold up your pants with something a little more rugged, we’ve got the first ever discount on Abl belts.
These belts are constructed from a firm elastic, which means you can adjust it to fit perfectly (and loosen it after a big meal), rather than conforming to the inch-apart holes that BIG BELT wants to foist upon us.
