Electronics are getting smaller and smaller, and we all seem to have our own special portable tech gadgets that we never leave home without. You probably already have a smartphone with you just about everywhere you go, but if you’re in the market for some new portable tech, we’ve rounded up a handful of great palm-sized devices.
Below are our top 10 favorite portable tech deals going right now, from a pair of wireless headphones to a new smartwatch. Even better: All of these gadgets are currently on sale on Amazon at deep discounts of up to 81 percent off.
mosDART 16GB Flash Drive ($10)
There’s no such thing as having too much storage space. Long gone are the days when a 500MB hard drive was considered impressive. Digital storage continues to get smaller and more efficient, and SD cards and USB flash cards are wonderful things to have if you’re frequently moving data between devices or workstations. The mosDart 16GB Flash Drive is a stellar alternative to those easy-to-lose SD cards.
The mosDart 16GB Flash Drive can be yours for just $10 on Amazon after a 38 percent discount shaves $6 off the normal price.
Cube Item Finder ($25)
The one major drawback with portable tech is that these tiny gadgets can easily get lost. If you need some help keeping tabs on the small stuff, the Cube item finder is just the ticket. Compared to similar item finders like Tile, the Cube is a diminutive 1.5 inches long on all sides and is just 0.2 inches thick. Simply attach it to any of your gadgets use the Cube Tracker app to locate it virtually anywhere. Even without the app, you can still find nearby items by remotely making the Cube vibrate, flash, or ring.
The Cube item finder is available on Amazon for a $35 discount, bringing this handy tracking device down to just $25.
Most action cams are already pretty small but this palm-sized one from Nexgadget takes portability to the next level. Even more impressive than its size, however, is the Nexgadget camera’s recording capabilities: This action cam can shoot video in crispy 4K Ultra HD at 30 frames per second or in 1080p Full HD at 60fps, while its 170 wide-angle lens makes sure you’re not missing any of the action in front of you. The camera’s housing is waterproof, dust-proof, and shock-proof as well, and the camera comes with a variety of mounting kits so you can take it on all of your adventures.
You can score the Nexgadget 4K mini action cam for just $46 from Amazon for a savings of $84.
Need a light? Electric lighters like this one from Regality put a whole new spin on traditional designs. Fluid lighters can be messy and run out of fuel quickly (the famous Zippo, while an all-American classic, is notorious for this), not to mention that lighter fluid and butane canisters are an extra expense. The Regality lighter, on the other hand, uses an internal rechargeable battery to project a windproof electric arc instead of a flame. The design is environmentally friendly and delivers up to 300 lights on a single charge. When it needs more juice, simply plug it in and power it up via the included USB charging cable. No wicks, flints, fluid, or gases to fuss around with.
A 41 percent discount takes $14 off the price of the Regality lighter on Amazon, meaning you can have this unique device for just $20.
Pebble Time Smartwatch ($69)
This portable tech gadget isn’t something you put in your pocket – in fact, it’s something you can wear all day. The Pebble Time is an attractive and affordable entry-level smartwatch that syncs with your Android or iOS device and send notifications and incoming messages right to your wrist. The device’s built-in mic lets you reply without even pulling out your phone. The vibrant LED e-paper display is always on and is easy on the eyes. You can choose from thousands of downloadable watch faces to suit your style as well.
Pebble is no longer producing wearables (but worry not, Pebble fans — Rebble has you covered), so this is a solid chance to score a deal on one if prices on the other top smartwatches give you sticker shock. A new Pebble Time can be yours for as low as $69 on Amazon while supplies last, giving you a discount of $81.
A good pair of Bluetooth headphones is invaluable if you’re frequently on the move and don’t want to be without your music and other entertainment. But many pairs of wireless earbuds feature clunky receivers or housings that sit on your neck, making them too big to carry in your pocket. In contrast, the compact Senso Bluetooth headphones fit comfortably behind your ears without any unnecessary bulk.
These headphones feature a nano-coated surface that is resistant to sweat and water, making them a great choice for outdoors and sporting activities. The Senso wireless Bluetooth headphones are available on Amazon for $30, giving you a 82 percent savings of $140.
Power banks are great little devices to have with you when you’re out and about, allowing you to give your portable tech a power boost without having to hunt around for the nearest outlet or USB port. The Dofly mini power bank takes this portability to the next level with its pocket-friendly size and 3,400mAh internal battery. The included lanyard also does double duty as a handy Micro USB charging cable.
The pocket-sized Dofly mini power bank won’t fully charge your devices multiple times over, but the 3,400mAh battery is sufficient for full or near-full charges for most smartphones. This handy portable charger can be had for $12 on Amazon after a 67 percent discount of $24.
If the palm-sized Dofly charger whets your appetite for portable tech but you want something with a bit more juice, the Anker PowerCore is another excellent pocket-friendly power bank. Its 10,000mAh battery can charge your phone multiple times, but the PowerCore is barely larger in length and width than a credit card.
Anker’s proprietary PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technology optimizes charging speed for different devices, ensuring that you’re not waiting around too long for your gadgets to recharge when you need a boost in a pinch. A 48 percent discount of $24 knocks the Anker PowerCore down to just $26 on Amazon.
RIF6 Cube Portable Projector ($211)
When it comes to mini video projectors, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more portable than the Cube from RIF6. This little LED projector measures roughly 2 inches long on each side but can project an image as wide as 120 inches at 50 lumens. Multiple inputs include a MicroSD slot for stored media, along with an HDMI port for full 1080p HD support. The Cube also comes with a handy remote control, as well as a sturdy tripod, giving you virtually everything you need for an ultra-compact HD video setup.
A 19 percent discount drops the RIF6 Cube down to $211 on Amazon, providing a nice savings of $89.
Wireless speakers are arguably the most popular implementation of Bluetooth technology today, allowing you to take your music virtually anywhere. Most of these speakers won’t easily fit in your pocket, but the Omaker W4N is one exception. This tinycube packs a 12-hour battery life, delivering great sound for longer in a package that fits in the palm of your hand.
Measuring less than 1.9 inches on each side, the Omaker portable Bluetooth speaker can be your pocket party companion for just $16 after a 77 percent discount on Amazon.
