As Black Friday deals continue trickling in early, more recent devices are going on sale for the first time or for new lows. One example is Amazon’s new Fire TV Stick 4K Max, which came out just a couple of months ago and is now on sale for $39.99 ($20 off) at Amazon and Best Buy.
The new flagship 4K streaming stick from Amazon is a lot like the last-gen model, but it packs better specs with Wi-Fi 6E support and 16GB of storage instead of 8GB while maintaining HDR support that includes HDR10 and HDR10 Plus. The last-gen model was one of our top recommendations for streaming devices, and the new model is just more of the same formula — a great streamer, especially if you want voice commands via Alexa. So if you want pretty much all the specs you can ask for in a stick-style streaming device that hides away behind your TV and comes with a good remote, the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max is a bargain right now.
The Storm 2 is a beefy power bank that holds up to 25,600mAh / 93.5Wh of juice, has two USB-C ports and one USB-A port, and can output 100W of power to charge even larger laptops. The smaller Storm 2 Slim is no slouch, however, as it packs 20,000mAh / 72Wh of power with just one less output port. Both have handy color LCDs to show you battery and output levels, and frankly, both look smashing. There’s a small part of me that looks at the Storm 2 and feels strangely compelled to pick it up and put it to my ear like it’s a certain iconic phone.
