HyperAir is the best fast wireless charger for Apple’s new iPhones, and it’s only $19.99 today

Whether you recently bought a new iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, or you’re preordering the hot new iPhone XR that just went up for pre-sale on Friday, you need a wireless charger. Trust us, it makes life so much easier. But not all wireless chargers are created equal and the good ones are often quite expensive. Our favorite model is the RAVPower HyperAir Fast Wireless Charger, which originally launched at $50. The price has since dropped to $40, which is a fantastic price for a reliable fast wireless charger made of sturdy aluminum instead of cheap plastic like rival models. But if you use the coupon code JVTZG3SQ at checkout, you’ll only pay $19.99!

Here’s more info from the product page:

  • RAVPower Redefines Fast Wireless Charging: our pioneering HyperAir technology delivers the fastest charging speeds for both iOS and Android devices, 7.5W compatible with iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus, and 10W for Samsung Galaxy S9, S8, S7 and Note 8. 2x faster than traditional 3.5W – 5W wireless chargers
  • Charge Up Safely: HyperAir features triple temperature controls disperse heat 15% faster and more effectively. And fail-safe circuitry prevents overcharging, over-current, over-voltage, overheating, and short circuit
  • Instantaneous Device Detection: Sharing the same fixed frequency program as iPhones, HyperAir accurately detects your iPhone and starts charging immediately
  • Note: Whether your iPhone is being standard charged, fast charged, or fully charged, the LED will stay orange and NOT turn green as iPhones do not send any signal to the wireless charger. Please do not place anything between your iPhone and charger, or it will stop working
  • Important Notice: Please do not place any metal or magnetic objects between your phone and charger, or the latter will not work. Equip your device with a Qi receiver if it’s not Qi-enabled out of the box. Does not charge through phone cases thicker than 0.12 in / 3 mm

Surprise sale slashes Echo Dot refurbs to just $29.99

The most popular smart speaker Amazon has ever made just dropped to within $5 of its lowest price ever in a surprise sale! With the brand new 3rd-gen Echo Dot now shipping, Amazon has decided to begin offering a big discount on last year’s model. The new one is a solid value at $50, but truth be told it doesn’t improve upon the experience from the second-gen model all that much. That’s why we definitely recommend taking advantage of Amazon’s current sale on the Certified Refurbished Echo Dot instead, which slashes the price to just $29.99. It’s not going to last long at this price, so grab one (or several) while you can.

Here are some key details from the product page:

There’s finally a way to keep beer and soda bottles fresh overnight, and it only costs $7.49

Sometimes I buy a bunch of craft beers for a get together and they always seem to come in those oversized bottles. Then at the end of the night, there are a bunch of half-full bottles left and I have no choice but to dump them out. At least that used to be the case until I came across Save Brands Silicone Rubber Beer Savers. They really couldn’t be simpler… they’re just silicone bottle caps. But they fit your bottles perfectly to keep your beer (or soda) fresh overnight in the bottle, and it’s only $7 and change for a 6-pack.

Here are the details from the product page:

  • Designed to help keep beer fresh and safe
  • Made of food-safe silicone
  • Fits most standard beer bottles and some larger styles
  • Dishwasher safe and reusable
  • Come in multi-colored sets of six (Blue, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Purple)
