Get a Ravpower mobile charger-router-media-hub for $34.99

Talk about a travel buddy: the Filehub offers just about everything the road warrior needs, all in a compact package.


Quick update regarding yesterday's headphones deal. Apparently the coupon code timed out late yesterday, but I contacted the vendor and it seems to be working again as of this morning. So if you're still interested in grabbing a set, you have another chance!

Moving you like to travel light? Of course you do! So wouldn't it be awesome if you could squeeze three or four essential travel tools into a single, streamlined gadget?

Asked and answered. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Sunvalleytek has the Ravpower Filehub mobile charger/router/media-hub for $34.99 shipped. That's after applying coupon code ESSWVFQ6 at checkout. Regular price: $59.99.

(Actually, if you're not an Amazon Prime subscriber, you may need to pad your cart by a penny to bag free shipping. Check out the Filler Item Finder if you need help finding items priced below a buck. There are lots!)

The Filehub performs three key duties. First, it's a 6,000mAh mobile charger, which is solid given its fairly diminutive dimensions and other capabilities. Second, it's a streaming media hub, able to wirelessly beam music, movies and the like from any SD card or USB drive. That's a huge plus for phone and tablet users who have limited internal space.

Finally, the Filehub handles all your networking needs: bridge, access point and router. And thanks to the aforementioned hub capabilities, you can use it as a network attached storage (NAS) server as well. That's some serious multifunction goodness right there.

I haven't tried the Filehub, but it earned a 4.6-star average rating from well over 100 buyers. And if you look elsewhere, you'll see similar praise for a lot of Ravpower's gear. At this price, this is pretty tough to pass up.

Bonus deal: From TV remotes to game-console controllers to the little clock on your wall, AA batteries remain a necessary evil -- and a costly one at that. But not today: EBL has a 16-pack of rechargeable NiMH 2,800mAh AA batteries for $25.99, shipped free with Prime. Regular price: $32.99. Considering that's about what you'd pay for the same number of disposable Duracells, this is pretty sweet. Alas, it's BYO charger.
