Anker, purveyor of your favorite battery packs, charging cables, and Bluetooth speakers, also makes some advanced LED desk lamps, and a pair of them are on sale today.

The standard Lumos lamp includes four different lighting temperatures for different times of the day, as well as five dimming modes, and even a USB charging port for your phone. We see a lot of deals on desk lamps, and $34 is a fantastic price for that feature set.

If only the best will do, the Lumos E1 is also on sale for an all-time low $59. Compared to the standard Lumos, the E1 includes brighter bulbs, an extra color temperature, an extra dimming level, and an extra charging port.

If you need a little extra motivation to start exercising, Amazon’s offering great prices on several Saucony running shoes for men and women, today only. Prices range from $72 to $96, which compares well to their ~$110-$150 price tags elsewhere on the web, so head over to Amazon to check out the full selection. [Saucony Running Shoes Gold Box]

Note: Several of these include multiple color options; click through to the product page to see them.

If you hurry, Amazon’s selling your undisputed favorite travel mug, the Contigo Autoseal West Loop, for as little as $13, one of the best prices we’ve ever seen, and a solid discount from its usual $18-$20. Just be sure to grab one before the deal cools off.

The compact Ninja Master Prep is one of the more versatile kitchen gadgets you can own, and it’s down to $30 today on Amazon, within $3 of its all-time low.

Want to mix up a frozen smoothie? Chop some onions? Puree a few tomatoes? The Ninja is designed for all of that, and includes two different-sized jars and blade sets to handle your disparate kitchen duties. You can’t say that about most blenders.

Despite the low price, the Ninja has a stellar 4.5 star review average on Amazon, which would be impressive for any inexpensive blender, let alone one as versatile as this.

If the power at your house can be a little spotty, this $20 APC backup UPS is designed specifically to keep your modem and router running for up to three hours on battery power, so you won’t have to lose touch with the world.

For $5 more, you can also get a version with USB ports for your mobile devices.

You probably spend at least a few hours a day in front of a keyboard, so you really should give mechanical key switches a try.

This Monoprice full-sized mechanical keyboard features versatile red switches, and is marked down to $40 today. That’s one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on any mechanical keyboard, and hovering near impulse purchase territory, if you still haven’t experienced one for yourself.

If you have any old SSDs or hard drives lying around, you can plug them into this docking station to access the contents over USB. If this is going to be a permanent fixture on your desk, it might even be worth buying an SSD just for it, to create an ultra-fast external drive.

If you still haven’t watched Firefly, or just want to own a physical copy for posterity, the complete Blu-ray is back down to $15, the best price of the year. Shiny!

If you want to try pulling in local HDTV channels over the air, this omni-directional antenna will only set you back $10. It’s unamplified, so you’ll need to live pretty close to the transmitters, but if you, this is a fantastic price.

This UtechSmart gaming mouse is perfect for MMO players (or even for general computing tasks), and you can pick it up from Amazon for just $34 today. That’s still a decent chunk of change, but it gets you a 16,400 DPI sensor, Omron switches, dynamic backlighting, and 18 programmable side buttons.

Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and you can score a refurb on eBay today for just $50.

Aukey has a penchant for making battery packs with features you didn’t realize you needed, and this 12,000mAh pack is no exception.

In addition to the requisite dual charging ports and built-in flashlight, the entire top surface of the battery pack is covered with a solar panel. Obviously, a panel that size isn’t going to charge a 12,000mAh battery very quickly, but it’s great for emergencies or camping trips where you just need to eke out a little more juice.

If you’re ready to step up to 4K, you won’t find a better deal than this 48" Samsung Smart TV for $500. For reference, that’s $100 less than its Black Friday pricing, and $200-$300 less than usual. In fact, it’s almost $180 cheaper than the 40" model of the same set.

This Xbox One deal doesn’t come with any extra games or controllers; you just get the standard Quantum Break white Xbox One bundle at a $70 discount. With that extra cash, you can buy whatever extras you want.

If you don’t already have a multi-port USB charger plugged in everywhere you spend a significant amount of time, there’s nothing stopping you today. Just use promo code VXMOQ74S at checkout to knock this 6-port model down to $12.

Note: The code only applies to the white model.

Unlike smartphone lens add-ons that require a special case or a specific phone model, Aukey’s 3-in-1 kit uses a clamp to attach to your device, which means it should work with virtually any smartphone. Once that clip’s in place, you get to choose from three different lenses: Fisheye, wide angle, and macro. Several of Amazon reviewers have uploaded sample photos and videos, and they look pretty great to my eyes, particularly the close-up macros.

Stick-anywhere LED lights from OxyLED have been incredibly popular over the last year, and you can score deals on two great ones today.

You never want to be in a situation where you need a solar and hand crank-powered weather radio with a flashlight and USB port for charging your phone, but when you can get one for $18, you probably should buy it just in case.
