The right time to buy: Some of the best deals on Amazon

Of all the websites that have a rabbit hole kind of vibe, Amazon ranks near the top.

Honestly, it's easy to check it out for one thing and, next thing you know, you've spent the last 45 minutes browsing and buying things you never realized you needed.

But you did. You did need them.

The good news is you can find pretty much anything on the site, but the trick is getting the best price possible.

With that in mind, here are five items with a great coolness:deal ratio that you may want to look into.

A fast wireless charger

There are few things more stressful than watching our phone's battery slowly drain away, but while chargers are great, cables can get a bit clunky. Or lost. They also get lost.

That's where the RAVPower 7.5 W Fast Wireless Charger comes in.

No matter what phone you are using, as long as you have Qi charging capabilities, this will get the job done -- quickly. The RAVPower 7.5 W charges your phone fully in less than three hours, while its HyperAir feature prevents overheating, overcharging and short-circuiting.

It can be yours for just $35.99.


An easy-to-use drone

Few things seem to be as much fun as drones. As toys for adults (which also have a practical purpose), they can be a bit intimidating.

They don't have to be.

The Holy Stone HS160 Shadow FPV RC Drone is meant for kids and beginners, which means it's a great gift for the technologically-savvy member of your family.

Complete with a 720P HD Wi-Fi Camera that boasts a live video feed, the drone also has altitude hold, one key start, foldable arms and a bonus battery.

The cost of this one? $99.99.


A security doorbell

You can never really keep your home too safe these days, and part of that means knowing who is at your front door when the bell rings.

That's why smart doorbells are great, with the Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell being one of the best -- and most stylish.

Ring can see and hear whoever is at the door, while allowing you to talk to them, from a phone, tablet or computer. It will also send you instant alerts when someone presses the button or triggers the built-in motion sensors. Oh, it also has infrared night vision so you can see people at night.

Can you put a price on security? Well, Ring will run you just $132.


Headphones meant for sport

Exercising is a great thing to do, but it's infinitely more enjoyable while listening to some of your favorite tunes. The problem is, most good headphones are not meant for the sporting world.

These are.

The Anker SoundBuds Surge Bluetooth Headphones are meant to be on the go.

They are lightweight, and there is nothing in the way of cords to connect to your device. Designed to fit comfortably and snugly in your ears, they are also water resistant, so sweat will not be a problem.

The cost? Just $18.99.


Keep that new iPhone safe

You couldn't wait to get your hands on the newest iPhone, the X. Sure, you spent a good amount of money on it, but the thing is amazing so it was totally worth it.

Just don't drop it.

Dropping is one of the leading causes of death among cellphones. Really, if you've never dropped one before, chances are you've never held one. In some ways, it's only a matter of time.

The mere thought of losing your iPhone X to any kind of fall is probably enough to make you want to scream, which is why it is imperative you protect it with a case.

Like, for instance, the JETech Case, which is a clear shock-absorption bumper cover that will keep your phone safe while allowing to remain stunning to look at.

Its raised bezels will protect the screen and camera, while the case is also scratch resistant, has UV resistance and is anti-yellow.

Keeping your iPhone safe will run you $3.99.
