iProven DTR-1221A Thermometer

$6 $12

Buy now from Amazon

These days, it’s important to have an accurate thermometer on hand. Though the iProven DTR-1221A has been relegated to the notable competition section of our guide, we still think it’s a reliable oral or rectal thermometer pick. It doesn’t have a backlit screen and isn’t as easy to read as its replacement, but the readily available iProven delivers consistent results. It also provided faster reads than most of the competition, usually averaging about ten seconds or less.

1byone Digital Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna

$17 $25

Buy now from Amazon

Sometimes, you just want to catch The Masked Singer as it airs live. Simple and inexpensive, an indoor HDTV antenna will pull in dozens of free, over-the-air channels to help supplement your TV subscription services. Though the 1byone Digital Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna doesn’t offer as many features as our top pick (like a detachable cable or the ability to be easily relocated), it picked up almost as many channels. Plus, as our budget pick, it’s also significantly more affordable than the competition.

Anker PowerWave Pad 10W Max Qi Charger

$9 $12

Buy now from Amazon

The Anker PowerWave 10W Max is a slightly faster variant of our former budget pick (the PowerWave Pad) that offers 7.5W charging capabilities for iPhone models 8 and newer. It’s not perfect—its circular shape makes it a little more difficult to orient your phone into a charging position and you’ll need to provide your own QC 3.0 wall adapter to optimize speed—but it’s still a good model that’s available for an even better price than our current budget pick.
