The Cheapskate Mystery Box, unboxed!

Gadgets
Hey everybody, Rick the Cheapskate Broida here. And, today, we are going to unbox the cheapskate mystery box. Now, for those of you who missed out, last week we did this kind of cool special thing where we raised money for the Hunger Project by selling $250 of these mystery boxes. Today, let's take a look at what is inside starting with. One of my very favorite items, it is a Cheapskate T shirt. I've never done one of these before. I'm kinda pretty excited and proud of it. So Cheapskate on the front and actually says Daily Steals on the back. If you missed out on this don't worry I think we'll probably try to offer just a straight up cheap skate T-shirt deal at some point down the road. But for now, it's only for the folks who bought the bucks. Next up we have the ACE TEAH pen, these are 3 in 1 pens that have a ball point, a stylus tip and a holder that you can pop up your phone or your tablet. I love, love, love these things. Really comfy pen too. All right, now Tomtop came through with a drone. We put a drone in the box, the real thing with a remote. You don't even have to use your phone to control this thing. So yeah, this S9, it has auto hover and it has headless mode and it's got a camera even and it's just kinda cool looking to boot. So there you go, happy flying. Next from the good folks at Tech Rabbit, we have something that everybody needs. It is a mobile power bank, a mobile charger. And this is a pretty high profile one. It's a Mophie Power Reserve, whoo. Next up from the good folks at Aukey, we have a little product that actually is very useful. It's a cigarette lighter USB adapter. So plug it into your cigarette lighter in your car, and you have two smart 2.4-amp USB ports to plug in all of your devices. Now we have, from the folks at Apeman, that's a cool company name, This is a Wi-Fi outlet. So, plug it in, pair it with your smartphone. Then plug in a lamp, or whatever, and you have an outlet that can be controlled wirelessly from anywhere, any time. It's smart. Next up is the Tacklife arc lighter. It's a lighter that doesn't use a flame. It uses a little, tiny, arc reactor thing that's not fire and it has No gas and no smell or anything you just charge it up and you'll have a lighter that kind of works forever. It's really really cool. from the good folks from Taotronics we have these Deimos bluetooth wireless ear buds, their like sport buds and really slick too, actually is a really nice pair. So, get out there and go exercise. Next up we have. My God, it's the wise cam. One of my all time favorite products of the year. And a little bit last year too. This is actually the second gen model. Its a wireless streaming video camera that you can set up in your house for security and what not. And it's actually just 20 bucks so if you missed out, it's a steal even if you just have to buy one. My gosh, one of my all time favorite products in the whole wide world. It's the phone loop. This is the thing that you put in your case, in between your case and your phone you're slipping your fingers behind and now you're much less likely to drop your phone, and it says just like the t-shirt, cheap skate and proud of it. And yes, indeed we are. Audiobooks.com came through for us with two free, completely free, obligation free audiobooks with that redemption code, and finally stacks social gave us this excellent game it's called next up hero, I think it's a platformer ANd lots of great reviews so lots of fun. Enjoy. And there you have it. That is the chief skate mystery box. The first of many more are to come. Hope you'll enjoy everything that you got and I will see you next time. [SOUND]
