5 Amazon deals you won’t want to miss

Do you have any big plans for the weekend? Maybe a short trip or an outing with the kids? Perhaps you will just stay home or take care of some errands or chores.

Another option is to do some shopping, and as we all know Amazon is a great place to turn for that. No matter what you are looking for it’s probably available through the site, likely at an amazing price.

Of course there are millions of items to sort through, and unless your weekend is an incredibly long one, the time to see it all probably doesn’t exist. Therefore we have put together a list of some of the best deals you will find this weekend.

Power it all without taking up too much room

These days none of us are short on items we need to plug in to run or charge, though it’s not always easy finding places to do that. And even when you do, there may not be enough room for everyone.

Power strips have long been around, but the Anker PowerPort Cube provides the functionality without needing nearly as much room. It has three outlets as well as three USB ports, so you’ll have no trouble finding room for everything.

The compact device with high-speed charging has switch control and overload protection. Its cord is five-feet long, making it perfect for travel and home or office.

Big sound from one small device

For many of us, the idea of having a great sound system is more of a dream than a reality because, well, they are expensive to build and can take up some room. Except, that does not have to be the case.

The TaoTronics Sound Bar is just 25 inches long — so a little more than two feet — and it provides outstanding audio playback. Perfect for a smaller room, it is both wired and wireless, with the ability to pair via Bluetooth from up to 33 feet.

It can be set up in multiple ways, and it is quite easy to use and operate. The sound bar comes with a highly-sensitive remote control that displays its different modes via colored LED lights.

Light up your life (or at least your home)

Want to add something fresh to your home but don’t feel like spending a ton of money? There are all sorts of nice upgrades that break the bank, but adding some LED string lights would provide a nice look at a minimal cost.

Specifically, the TaoTronics LED string lights, all 66 feet of them, are a great way to go. All 200 of the LEDs within are dimmable and while perfect for festivals and holidays, add something unique to any home at any time.

The lights are waterproof, while the power adapter and controller are both safe for use inside or outside. They are eco-friendly and energy efficient, meaning they will not overheat even after long hours of usage.

Bring the ability to charge wherever you go

We have all been there, not anywhere near a place to charge our phone or tablet and worried about running out of juice. Battery packs come in handy, and this one is no different.

The Jackery Bolt 6000 mAh power bank has a built-in lightning cable for iPhones as well as a Micro USB charging cable for other devices. It will fully charge an iPhone 6, 7 or 8 within 1.5 hours, and will power up an iPhone 6 Plus, 7 Plus or 8 Plus within two.

The charger has a built-in certified battery cell that ensures safety, and comes with a 24-month product warranty.

A thermometer for all environments

Maybe it’s not important, but it’s certainly fun to know the temperature of where you are at. Whether it’s inside or outside, being able to take a look and understand the weather a bit better is something many of us would like to do.

With the ThermoPro TP63, you get a thermometer that works both inside and outside. It is wireless and digital, and along with temperature it also provides a humidity gauge.

The remote sensor is weatherproof, as well as rechargeable and cold-resistant. Its touchable backlight LCD screen displays the temperature along with trend arrows and high/low records, keeping you aware of what’s going on.
