iPhone 13 sees up to $224 Renewed Premium discounts

Amazon is now offering Apple’s previous-generation unlocked iPhone 13 in Renewed Premium condition starting at $658 for the 128GB capacity. Normally fetching $799, this is still one of the first times to save with today’s offering $141 in savings. This is $22 under our previous mention and a new all-time low, marking only the second discount we’ve seen since Apple released the newer 14 series devices. Multiple colors and storage capacities are available for this iPhone 13 deal, which we break down below.

The now previous-generation iPhone 13 arrives as an even better value thanks to the discount today, and comes powered by the A15 Bionic chip. Alongside notably improved battery life compared to predecessors, there’s also that same squared-off design as last time around to pair with the Super Retina XDR display with a smaller notch. There’s also an upgraded camera experience with its more recent Cinematic mode and improved sensors, too.

Satechi’s just-released Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub falls to all-time low

Satechi’s official Amazon storefront now offers its just-released Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub for $160. Normally fetching $200, you’re looking at an extension of the launch discount that was exclusive to Satechi’s official storefront and a 20% discount. This is matching the all-time low and only the second chance to save $40.

Sporting a 5-in-1 design, Satechi’s latest Thunderbolt 4 offering arrives with a compact design that really lets it live up to the slim naming scheme. The back of the device sports three full Thunderbolt 4 ports capable of driving a single 8K display or dual 4K monitors. Then on the front is the Thunderbolt 4 host connection that can dish out 60W of power to a connected MacBook, as well as a 10Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 port to connect any other peripherals. We break down what to expect from the experience further in our launch coverage.

Black Friday pricing returns on fitness-ready Beats Studio Buds

Amazon now offers the Beats Studio Buds in Moon Gray for $90. Typically fetching $150, you’re looking at a match of the Black Friday price as well as a return to the all-time low for the first time since. The $60 in savings haven’t been beaten before, and today’s offer is not only $10 under our previous mention, but also the same amount below what you’ll pay for other styles right now.

Beats Studio Buds arrived last summer and still stand as some of the brand’s latest workout companions. The true wireless form-factor makes these ideal for tagging along on workouts as well as your typical daily wear, with active noise cancellation joining the feature set on top of a transparency mode. Other notable inclusions like hey siri support, a compact charging case with USB-C that brings battery life up to 24 hours, and IPX4 water-resistance complete the package. Dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.

UGREEN’s 15W MagSafe Charger refuels your entire Apple kit

UGREEN’s official Amazon storefront is now offering its latest 15W 3-in-1 MagSafe Charging Stand for $100. Dropping lower than ever before, today’s offer is down from the usual $130 going rate and marking a new all-time low. This is $10 under our previous mention and still one of the first discounts so far.

Streamlining your workstation or nightstand, UGREEN’s latest MagSafe charging station arrives with a 3-in-1 design that can top off your entire Apple kit from one compact footprint. The 15W MagSafe pad is of course the star of the show, providing max power outputs to Apple’s latest iPhone 14 series as well as 12 and 13 handsets. Off to the side is a 5W Qi pad for AirPods, with the integrated Apple Watch charger rounding out the package.

New all-time low drops Philips Hue’s Gradient Ambiance Lightstrip to $102

Amazon currently offers the Philips Hue Gradient Ambiance Lightstrip for $102. Normally fetching $180, this is delivering a new all-time low at $78 off. It’s $6 below our previous holiday mention from last month, too, and the most affordable we’ve seen any of the brand’s addressable light strips.

As one of the more recent additions to the Philips Hue ecosystem that launched back in October, the Gradient Ambiance Lightstrip enters as a long-awaited option for bringing addressable RGB lighting into your space. It measures 6 feet in length and on top of pairing with the greater Hue ecosystem over Zigbee for Siri, Alexa, or Assistant integration, works by itself thanks to Bluetooth connectivity.
