AmazonBasics 6-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip

— $8, was $11

This 6-foot-long power cord comes with multiple outlets and surge protection. This means that no matter how much the voltage fluctuates or spikes, your plugged-in electronics will always be safe. There’s a built-in power switch as well making it easy to monitor all your devices attached to the power strip. You can also easily cut power to all your devices at once if you need to conserve energy. There’s also a surge protected LED indicator that lets you know when to replace it. Your LED indicator will light up when your devices are protected and when you see the light fade and go out, you’ll know it’s time to replace it.

The design isn’t bulky either. You can easily slide your power strip in tight corners or place it on an isolated area on your desk. The 6-foot power cord allows you to place your gadget in spots far away from a wall socket as well. If you’re still on the fence of purchasing this power strip, you’ll be happy to know that this gadget has over 22,000 ratings on Amazon, making it one of the most popular power strips currently available. It’s also lighter than most other power strips, weighing in below a pound so you can also easily carry your power strip around if you desire.

With multiple outlets, surge protection, and a compact design, it’ll be hard to find a better Prime Day power strip deal than this. Get ready for the holiday season now and plug all your Christmas lights into the AmazonBasics 6-Outlet Power Strip. Buy it now before stocks run out.

Want to level up your stargazing game? Right now is an interesting time to get into the hobby, with incredible images from the VLT Survey Telescope being released and new rockets being launched every few months. This Celestron StarSense Explorer DX telescope isn't going to give you views of planets in other solar systems, but it has a bunch of cool features to help new astronomers get excited about space. As part of Prime Day telescope deals, this Celestron is discounted from $470 to just $320. Grab it before Prime Big Deal Days are over.

Why you should buy the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX telescope during Prime Day
The biggest feature of the Celestron StarSense Explorer DX that makes it great for beginners is the ability to hook it up to your smartphone. Connecting your phone lets you use the app to get a guided tour of the sky. Just point the telescope up in the sky (on a clear night) and connect the app. Using StarSense technology, the telescope figures out exactly what it's looking at. It knows where you are in the world, what time it is, and what it's looking at. From there it can point you in the direction of interesting things to look at based on your location and time. This is great for people just starting out in the world of stargazing.

Prime Day in October: Get a pack of 12 AA rechargeable batteries for $18
AmazonsBasics AA batteries being inserted into a game controller.

As much as we try to avoid it, sometimes, you just have to buy those pesky household items you never want to spend money on. But if you're lucky, you can take advantage of some excellent discounts, like Prime Day deals, which provide the perfect opportunity to stock up. Amazon's Prime Day Big Deal Days event makes those discounts even sweeter. While we are close to an AA-battery-free world, it hasn't happened yet. Fortunately, we have a rechargeable option to spend less money and throw fewer batteries into landfills. Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Amazon Basic rechargeable batteries for just $18, thanks to a 10% discount on Prime Day. This deal will likely only stick around during the sale, so if your battery drawer is running low, grab them as soon as possible.

Why you should buy Amazon AA rechargeable batteries during the Prime Day Big Deal Days sale
Of course, there's not much I can tell you about batteries that you don't already know. These Amazon Basics brand AAs have a 2,000 mAh storage capacity. That's lower than a traditional alkaline battery, but it has enough power to last for a good three to four hours of continuous use. Then the rechargeable factor comes in. You can recharge these batteries about 1,000 times before they die out. Think about how many batteries it will save you -- and how much money. Let's do some quick napkin math. 1,000 recharges... alkaline batteries cost around one-third the price of a rechargeable... factor in the difference in storage capacity... It could be as much as $300 in savings over a single battery's lifetime. A lot less waste too.

Logitech C270 -- $24, was $30

In our roundup of the best Logitech webcams, we picked the Logitech C270 for students on a tight budget.

The webcam also comes with an adjustable universal clip that should allow it to attach to any monitor or laptop, though you can also fold it and use it as a stand.
