Anker has continued its inexorable march towards producing anything that includes a battery with the release of the new PowerHouse electric “generator,” and you can save $100 on yours for a limited time.

I put “generator” 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 compact PowerHouse (9.3 pounds).

I could see using this thing 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, you can save $100 with promo code ANKPower.

It’s a law of physics that your home never has enough power outlets, but you can fix that today with great deals on several Belkin surge protectors. Options range from a 12-outlet model designed for your home theater to the top-selling SurgePlus travel surge protector. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

You’re never too old for gummy vitamins, and Amazon’s taking an extra $3 off a variety of offerings from Vitafusion. Just find the vitamins you’re looking for, add them to your cart, and you’ll see the $3 discount at checkout.

We’ve seen several deals lately on Philips’ life-changing wake-up lights, but if you’re not among the 20,000+ Gawker media readers who have already pulled the trigger, the entry level model just dropped to its lowest price of the year.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, it will still nudge you awake with an audible beeping when it’s really time to get out of bed. It also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned this thing for over a year, and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm.

Whether you’re starting or expanding your collection, this is the best price Amazon’s ever offered on an 8-pack of Panasonic’s class-leading Eneloop AA rechargeable batteries.

You might also want to pick up some C and D spacers to get even more use out of your AAs.

The new DJI Phantom 4 sure looks impressive, but for $1000 less, you can pick up the still-completely-amazing Phantom 3 Standard today. You’ll lose out on features like the (finnicky) accident avoidance, indoor positioning, and 4K video, but the camera still boasts an impressive 2.7K resolution, and it’ll last over 20 minutes on a single charge. At $400, it probably won’t even eat up your entire tax refund.

It won’t show you your notifications or track your steps, but this simple Casio watch does include a solar panel on the face to keep its battery charged indefinitely. For $20, you could do a lot worse.

While slot toasters certainly aren’t as versatile as toaster ovens, few would argue that they aren’t far superior at actually toasting bread. So if you take your toast seriously, this 4-slice Cuisinart is a steal at $50, an all-time low. That gets you seven different shade settings, a bagel mode, dual-zone control, and more.

If you take your home theater audio seriously, these JBL 8" floorstanding speakers are on sale for $450 each today. That’s still quite a bit of money, especially since you’ll probably want to buy a pair, but they frequently sell for as much as $1,000 each, and they’ve never been this cheap before.

Because your teeth deserve the best, Amazon’s offering a $10 coupon on a variety of Philips Sonicare toothbrushes today, bringing starting prices down to just $30. Just note that the listed prices do not take the $10 discount into account; you won’t see the final price until checkout.

If you like the idea of a Logitech Harmony remote, but don’t care about bells and whistles, this Harmony 350 is only $32 right now on Amazon. You won’t get a touchscreen, smartphone app, or charging dock, but it can control the same 225,000+ devices as the rest of the line. We’ve seen it cheaper as a refurb, but this is the best price we’ve ever seen on a new one.

Our readers have bought thousands of UltraFire Cree LED mini flashlights, but if you’ve missed out so far, you can stock up for just $5 each today.

The Logitech G502 was your choice for best gaming mouse (though you don’t need to be a gamer to appreciate its benefits), and the upgraded Proteus Spectrum model (which includes fully adjustable backlighting) is on sale for an all-time low $70 today.

The marquee spec here is the DPI range of 200-12,000, adjustable on the fly. There are also five easily movable and removable weights, and 11 customizable buttons, along with the classic Logitech dual-mode scroll wheel. Mechanical microswitches and a braided cable are also nice touches.

The perfect grill for tailgating is marked down to its lowest price ever today on Amazon. All you have to do is set this up on any table, hook up a propane tank (including compact camping ones), and start cooking. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out.

Need some grilling accessories to go with it? This travel-friendly kit is also marked down to $20.

Sewing is one of those things everyone should at least try to learn, and this popular Singer sewing machine is marked down to just $96 today as part of a Gold Box deal.

The Singer 3232 includes 32 built in stitches, a fully automatic buttonhole mode, and typically sells for around $120. Today’s price is the lowest Amazon’s ever posted, so be sure to grab yours before this deal bursts at the seams.

If you can’t afford to outfit your entire kitchen with All-Clad gear, this 3-quart Cooks Standard saucepan uses the same Tri-ply technology of 18/10 stainless steel surrounding an aluminum core, and it can be yours for just $30, an all-time low.

Aruba is a great destination because it features both quality beaches to sit and do nothing on and a solid list of excursions for those who want to get out there. Travelzoo has rounded up a strong list of deals on lodging today, and while it’s always easier to pull the trigger on a trip where air is included, flying to the Bahamas is pretty low impact.

Aruba features everything from casinos and shopping to aloe farms, ruins, and amazing tide pools you’ll need an experienced all-wheel driver to get to. Eat the dutch pancakes, go to the butterfly garden, skip the bird sanctuary.

If you scurry over to BuyDig’s eBay storefront, you can score a pair of noise-cancelling Audio-Technica earbuds for under $30. For comparison’s sake, Amazon is selling this pair for $46.

Presto’s 3-stage electric knife sharpener is perfect for making your favorite knives feel new again, and today’s $30 deal is the best that Amazon’s ever offered. I know a lot of people are reflexively scared of these kinds of sharpeners, but this model has a 4.4 star average on nearly 1,000 reviews.

Microwave popcorn sucks, but we’ve got great deals on two different methods of popping your own kernels today. Buying popcorn in bulk is way cheaper than microwave packs, so these deals should pay for themselves over time.

For just $5, you’ll never have to fish a cable out from behind your desk again. Now that’s what I call a deal.

Anker PowerCore is your favorite line of USB battery packs, and two different models are on sale today on Amazon. The $21 PowerCore 13000 should be sufficient for most users, but the 26,800mAh model includes Quick Charge 2.0 output, and can recharge faster via an included Quick Charge 3.0 power brick.

TP-Link’s Archer C7 is The Wirecutter’s favorite router for most people, and Amazon will sell you one for just $82 today, the best price they’ve listed all year.

If you’ve been meaning to wall-mount your TV, you can save 50% on this articulating Cheetah mount on Amazon with promo code XPGXFOL7. This dual-arm mount is designed for 32"-65" TVs, which should be perfectly suitable for almost all of you. [Cheetah Mounts APDAM2B Articulating Dual Arm TV Wall Mount, $35 with code XPGXFOL7]

If you’re ready to take the plunge into LED lighting, this 6-pack of higly-rated TCP daylight bulbs is down to just $18 on Amazon right now, one of the best per-bulb prices we’ve ever seen. They aren’t dimmable, so you won’t want to put them in certain fixtures, but it’s a great bulk pack for filling out ceiling lights and lamps throughout your house.

Once you’ve got them, check to see if your local utility company offers rebates for purchasing LEDs. If so, it’s possible these could pay for themselves even quicker than they would otherwise.

If you prefer a warmer bulb, the equivalent soft white pack is just a couple bucks more.

This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. And no, these aren’t the sugar free ones.

For a limited time, Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off dozens of “box top” cereals and snacks through their Prime Pantry program. You can find all of the eligible items here; just be sure to clip the coupon on the product pages, and note that the prices listed are before the discount, which won’t be applied until checkout.

If Prime Pantry’s $6 per delivery fee is scaring you off, all you have to do is add five of these select items (including several of the aforementioned box top snacks) to your box to enjoy free shipping. And if that weren’t enough, if you have a Prime Pantry no-rush shipping credit in your account, that’ll stack with this deal, giving you an extra $6 off.
