expiredAmazon’s Gold Box all time lows on Electric razors, trimmers, Bluetooth sous vide cookers and clothing

Amazon has a wide variety of home goods and clothing at all-time low prices today in its Gold Box Deal of the Day. To start off: 50% off Reebok Men’s and Women”s Training Clothing and the 60% + off 3 pages of  U.S. Polo each offer significant savings.

Your best bet is Men’s Thermal Warmup Pants for $30 (Reg. $60) to get back into jogging before it warms up or women’s tees starting at $12.50.

Remington also offers up to 30% off grooming products as another Deal of the Day. Standouts for us are a foil shaver for $30 (Reg. $45) and a mustache trimmer for $22 (Reg. $35).

Want a one-way ticket to the dog house? Pick up the Remington Hair Removal System for $299.99 (Reg. $400) and wrap it up for Valentine’s day guys.

For slightly better or perhaps worse Valentine’s results, hook your significant other up with the Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker for $139 shipped (Reg. $180). It’s a lot of money but maybe he/she will stop burning your dinners now. Amirite?

Seriously though, this thing is pretty cool. It hooks up to your iPhone or Android Device and stirs and cooks your soups and other liquid food remotely and tells you when it is ready to consume. Full feature list:

Update (4/14 12:45pm): On-The-Go has launched its IndieGoGo campaign, if you’re interested in grabbing one they’ve got a number of different pledge options.

If you’re an avid follower of 9to5Toys (and we know that you are), you’re well aware of our love of battery packs, USB drives, MFi certification and all around gadgetry. It’s always interesting when companies set out to pair these things together, with varying degrees of success.

We’ve spotted something new today though, fittingly named On The Go, which aims to combine storage, charging, streaming, device tracking and more into a small package. The multi-functional connectivity on this thing is impressive, from iPhone to Android to Mac, it has everything covered… expand full story

Sometimes it is hard to be definitive on “Best of” products. On car chargers, it now isn’t. I’ve been using the Aukey Quad-port car charger for a few weeks and it is the most powerful, most solid, has the most ports and is one of the smallest I’ve tried. It also holds up well after multiple insertions and removals and it looks as good as a car charger is going to get. It also has a chip inside that not only knows how much charge to deliver to each port, but it also knows when the charge is complete and will shut down.

We’re talking no-brainer territory here.

Even if you have USB ports in your car, they likely don’t quick charge iPhone 6s s and iPads. This one does. Up to 4 of them at a time via the 48W/9.6A total output.

Amazon is currently offering the Aukey Quad-port car charger for $16.99 with free Prime shipping. That’s 66% off!

Oh, and as sad as it is for me, I’ll send this slightly used demo unit to someone who shares 9to5toys/this post on social media or signs up for our newsletter (US only).

Battery Charger Stories September 23, 2014

Yesterday, it was revealed that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be charged faster (in some cases as fast as 2 hours to full) using a 2.1A AC charger like the one that comes with the iPad. Curiously, Apple has only included the typical  5W 1A iPhone charger that it traditionally has with its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus meaning that your iPhone charge times coming from much smaller iPhones are going to go through the roof.

Not to worry! The 9to5Toys team will get you updated to 2.1A USB ports across the board with the best products/deals we could find for a wide range of 2.1A USB needs… expand full story
