This case is not comparable to other cases for charging earphones. Turn it over and it will become a Qi charging station for your phone!


Angry! We made it through Friday, everyone. And just a note: I have Monday off, although newsletter subscribers receive their deal email as usual. (You subscribe to the Cheapskate newsletter, right? If not, there is a registration field at the bottom of this post!)

I couldn't decide on a deal or two today, so I'll give you five!

To update: The Qi charging pad seems to have expired, but the other offers are still in effect!

Many modern true wireless earphones are in a charging case that can be charged wirelessly simply by placing it on a Qi charging pad. The HolyHigh EA2 True Wireless earphones are in a case that is itself a Qi charging pillow! It's true: flip it over and place your phone on it to charge wirelessly on the go.

In a way, it feels like you're buying a portable Qi power bank that happens to have earbuds in it. And this power bank is charged via USB-C and also has a USB-A output. If you only use it to power the earphones, the 5,000 mAh battery can add up to a whopping 240 hours of play, according to HolyHigh.

The earphones themselves: tube design, noise-isolating earplugs, IPX5-certified, sweat-proof and waterproof. I'm listening to them right now. The sound quality is reasonable considering the price, maybe a bit flat overall, lacking in details, but it's definitely good enough for the gym. As with all such earphones, it is important to get a good inner ear seal.

Speaking of price: only $ 33.49 if you cut off the $ 5 on-page coupon and then apply the coupon code TYDZD2RD at checkout. That's less than what you'd pay for countless earphones that don't have a versatile charging case.


In recent years, SimpliSafe has become synonymous with home improvement security. It is also known to offer one of the cheapest monitored security systems you can get.

For a limited time, it's even cheaper: This five-part kit, originally $ 250, has never been so cheap. It contains the base station (with siren), a keyboard, a motion sensor, an input sensor and a key fob. You will also receive a garden sign and window stickers and can expand the system with additional sensors, a panic button, cameras, etc.

Monitoring is optional. Prices start at 50 cents a day.

Will Apple eventually abolish the Lightning port? Maybe – but not yet. Until then, you may want to stock up on cables. This pack of 4 contains two 3-foot and two 6-foot treadmills – the previous one is, in my opinion, good for in-car use if you don't want the power cord to be overcharged.

These cables are not only MFi certified, but also braided and are covered by a lifetime guarantee. What's not to like?

I am more and more in love with LED light strips, be it as backlighting for your TV or just to upgrade your decor. Govee's 16.4 footer is ridiculously affordable and drops to $ 14.53 if you cut out the 5% discount coupon on page.

The bar is completely remote controlled. (Some support Wi-Fi, only FYI, which enables app and voice controls, but not this one.) It lets you adjust brightness and color, set custom scenes, and so on. Definitely worth a look if you haven't tried this kind of "mood lighting" yet.


Here's the problem with a lot of Qi charging pads: they come without a plug. Sure, you can use an extra one that you have lying around, but unless it's a QuickCharge connector (QC connector), the battery won't charge quickly through the pad.

This is one of the reasons why I really like this Seenda pad: it has a built-in power plug. There are also two Type A USB ports right next to it, so you can use it to charge other devices while charging your phone. Practically!

The pad is usually sold for $ 20, which is reasonable, but the price drops to $ 14 with the promo code 30SEENDA57, To update: This code only works with the seller ZYH Shop.

I wish you a nice weekend and see you on Tuesday!
