One of the things that almost everyone needs nowadays is more outlets. Another thing that people need is fast USB charging in their outlets. And if we’re making up some magical device here that has everything we need, we might as well give it great surge protection and let’s, for giggles, make it cost only $9.88 Prime shipped. 

Boom! This product actually exists. The CyberPower CSP600WSU Surge Protector 6-AC Outlet Swivel with 2 USB (2.1A) Charging Ports is again under $10 bucks at Amazon. Cyberpower is a great brand and they know their power/surge protection – this one gets 4.2/5 stars. The AC outlets swivel and the USB ports aren’t the wussy 1A ones but will actually quickly charge most devices at 2.1A.

I’m grabbing a few of these. See you at checkout.

expiredHome: Orange Chef Smart Food Scale $60 (Reg. $100), 3-Pack Remote Control Switch Plugs $13 (Reg. $20), more

The official Orange Chef Co. eBay store is offering its Orange Chef Prep Pad Smart Food Scale in silver for $59.98 shipped. That’s $90 below the original listing, 40% below the average listing/Amazon, and $25 under the best price we have ever offered.

Integrated with the free iOS Countertop app via Bluetooth 4.0, Prep Pad gives you real time nutritional breakdown of the calories, fat, protein and carbs in your diet (home cooked or packaged). The system is “carved from a single piece of aluminum” and includes a library of over 30,000 trackable food items (with the ability to add more). You’ll find more details in the demonstration video.

While it currently sits with a 3.4/5 star rating on Amazon, nearly half of those are 5 stars. Most of the critical reviews are based on what appear to be very particular complaints.

Etekcity via Amazon has the 3-Pack of Etekcity ZAP Wireless Remote Control Outlet Light Switch Plugs for $19.99, but using code HOME7OFF during checkout will drop your total down to $12.99. They will be shipped free for Prime members or with order of $35 or more. That’s about $7 below the regular listing and the current best price we can find.

By plugging one of these switches into your wall outlet and then an appliance into the switch, you’ll be able to turn that appliance on and off from up to 100-ft away (through walls, floors, etc) with the included remotes. It may not be as slick as the smart options available you’ll find on sale below, but it’s also a fraction of the price.

They are the best selling electric plugs on Amazon and have received a 4.4/5 star rating from 150 customers.
