All of today’s pre-weekend deals kick off with popular Anker PowerExtend power strips from $16. That’s alongside a pair of Amazon’s 60W USB-C cables for $6 and this ongoing Motorola Edge+ discount. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Anker PowerExtend power strips from $16

Anker is closing out the work week by discounting a selection of its popular power strips, wall taps, and surge protectors. Via its official Amazon storefront, pricing starts at $16. Our favorite of the batch this time around is the Anker PowerExtend USB-C Plug 3 Cube at $22. Down from $30, this is a new all-time low of 27% off while beating the previous discount by $3.

Sporting a compact build that plugs right into the wall, this is a notable way to streamline the bedside table or desk setup with three full AC outlets. That’s alongside a pair of 2.4A USB-A ports with the real star of the show being a 30W USB-C output. 

Save 50% on a pair of Amazon’s 60W USB-C cables

Woot is offering the 2-pack of 6-foot Amazon Basics 60W Fast Charging USB-C Cables for $6. This is 50% below the regular $12 price tag on Amazon and the lowest total we can find. The two-pack is currently on sale for $8.50 there, which is the lowest we have seen it go for.

An affordable opportunity to score a couple of extra charging cables, you’re looking at six-foot lengths that will work great with MacBook, Chromebook, Galaxy devices, and just about any other USB-C gear. Amazon says they support “fast charging up to 60W (20V/3A)” and transfer speeds up to 480MB/s with a typical USB-C jack on both ends. 

Motorola Edge+ was just revealed and is already $100 off

After being revealed earlier in the week, the new Motorola Edge+ smartphone is now seeing its first discount courtesy of Amazon. Dropping the unlocked Cosmos Blue 512GB model in price for the first time, you can score the Android smartphone for $900. That’s down from the usual $1,000 price tag in order to deliver a new all-time low at $100 off. Motorola’s all-new smartphone arrives with some of the most flagship-caliber specs we’ve seen from the brand in quite some time.

Everything for the new Motorola Edge+ is centered around a 6.7-inch 1080p 144Hz display that’s powered by the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC – a first for Motorola. If the 512GB of storage wasn’t already an eye-catcher, there’s also 12GB of RAM to pair with the 4,800mAh battery. 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, and an included charger in the box round out the package with three years of security updates. All of the other details await in our launch coverage.

SanDisk 64GB Ultra microSDXC down to $9

If you’re looking for a simple and solid microSD option to add some additional storage to your setup, Amazon is now offering the 64GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card for $9. Regularly closer to the $13 range like at B&H where it is on sale for over $11, today’s deal is within cents of the Amazon all-time low and the best price we can find. While this 120MB/s option is quite as new as the latest 130MB/s options from Samsung we reviewed, it is slightly less expensive and comes from a major player in the storage game. It is a solid option for Android phones and Nintendo Switch, among other things and makes for an affordable pocket-sized option.

JBL’s waterproof Xtreme 3 Bluetooth Speaker is $60 off

Amazon is currently offering the JBL Xtreme 3 Portable Bluetooth Speakers for $320. Normally retailing for $380, this $60 in savings marks the lowest price we’ve tracked these speakers for since around August 2021. Refurbished versions of this speaker have gone for less from Woot, however. Boasting 15 hours of battery life, the Xtreme 3 speaker is designed to keep the party going. Don’t believe me? The strap has a built-in bottle opener. You can connect to this speaker over Bluetooth or a 3.5mm aux cable. You’ll have two woofers and tweeters for “dynamic, immersive sound with deep bass and plenty of detail.” The Xtreme 3 is also IP67 waterproof and dustproof rated, so you can take it anywhere.
