Farewell, summer of 2019, you’ve been good to us, bringing some amazing pieces of technology. Now, it’s time to see what fall has in store for us and we do have a feeling that it’s going to be a pretty cool one. As a new season begins, let’s start by taking a look at some of September’s best tech bargains so far!
After some careful research, we managed to find some excellent tech picks, suitable for school, university, and even daily use. And you know what’s the best part about them? They all come with a price tag of under $50!
But enough with the chatter and let’s see what we have for you guys…
Some additional storage can never hurt, so we decided to start our list with the 256GB Ultra Dual Drive from SanDisk, perfect for those who joined the USB-Type-C-only club.
Perfect for transferring files between smartphones, tablets, as well as computers (yes, we’re looking at you, Macbook owners), the flash drive features a retractable design. To be more specific, this means that besides the regular USB Type-C connector, it also comes with the traditional USB connector, so you can use it with pretty much any PC.
In terms of speeds, you can enjoy up to 150MB/s, thanks to the 3.1 connectivity. And as a bonus, it can be used along with the SanDisk Memory Zone app for Android handsets, so you can easily manage and back up the content on your smartphone.
It looks like a sweet little gadget, don’t you think?
If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, it’s a real shame to not use this awesome feature. Plus, a lot of smartphone enthusiasts say that using this method instead of fast charging actually prolongs the battery’s lifespan!
Therefore, we picked the Ion Wireless Fast Charging Stand from the folks over at iOttie for two main reasons: the build quality, but also the looks. The soft feathered fabric that wraps the stand feels great, while the status indicator is great for easily checking if the phone is charging properly. It’s designed with a 65-degree tilt, so you can use your phone for viewing content while charging it.
As for how it refills your battery with juice, it has two Qi coils allowing charging in both portrait and landscape mode.
You can get it in two finishes, Ruby and Ash, but our recommendation would be to check out the latter, as it’s significantly more stylish!
You just can’t go wrong with an external battery and a 10000mAh power pack is more than enough for any kind of user, being able to charge most smartphones at least two and a half times. But with tons of models available right now, it can be a bit difficult to pick a good model.
Fortunately, we did the research and have one great suggestion: the Anker PowerCore 10000, one of the smallest and lightest external batteries with this capacity.
Thanks to Anker’s exclusive PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies, it’s able to deliver the fastest possible charge for any device, not just smartphones. It doesn’t support Qualcomm’s QuickCharge, but after testing it with a few devices, we were more than satisfied with the charging speeds.
But this is not everything, as it integrates Anker’s MultiProtect safety system as well, ensuring complete protection for your devices. Oh, and it’s available in some really nice colors, besides the classic Black, like Blue, Red, or White.
We know there are quite a lot of gamers around here, so we chose something for them as well!
The Logitech G430 Gaming Headset is now available for under $50 and it’s a great choice for anybody who’s looking forward to putting together a gaming setup on a tight budget.
The manufacturer needs no presentation at all, as its name is similar with great build quality, so let’s take a quick look at what this pair of headphones packs under the hood.
Obviously, the main feature is the DTS certification, which translates to X and Dolby 7.1 surround sound, for an immersive 360-degree sound field that basically lets you hear what you can’t see.
The folding microphone is able to reduce background noise, so your voice will be clear during intense gaming sessions, while the on-cable sound control unit provides quick audio adjustments.
You will surely be delighted with these as soon as you open the package and feel that soft sport cloth inside the ear cups!
Sticking to the gaming department, the last entry on our list is the Nimbus controller from SteelSeries, a name that is pretty much synonym with gaming at the pro level.
Compatible with both iOS and Android handsets, the Nimbus delivers a true console-like experience while gaming on your smartphone, thanks to the wireless connectivity, through Bluetooth 4.1.
Among its top features are the pressure-sensitive buttons and the ergonomic console layout – a great combination between PS4 and Xbox One layouts – as well as the stellar battery life, offering over 40 hours of nonstop gaming. Oh, and there’s that cool LED panel in the middle, showing your player status during multiplayer sessions!
Finally, since it’s a SteelSeries product, the build quality doesn’t disappoint, feeling great in hand even after using it for extended periods.
In a nutshell, if you’re looking forward to stepping up your mobile gaming, this is the controller to start with.
And this is pretty much it! Above you can find some of the best tech deals for September 2019. As promised, we selected just products with a price tag of under $50, as we wanted to prove that you can get some high-quality gadgets and accessories even without spending a fortune.
