You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

<p><a href="http://wrctr.co/1HM6I2f" target="_blank">D-Link DAP-1650 Wireless Range Extender</a></p><p class="image-container" style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://o.aolcdn.com/images/dar/5845cadfecd996e0372f/ce3835e1c0270950a13c6ac1d155b99aadc66bc4/aHR0cDovL28uYW9sY2RuLmNvbS9oc3Mvc3RvcmFnZS9taWRhcy80NDAyMzE0ZjZlNDQ2NmZlYmE5N2RhMGI1MjlhODc0OS8yMDIzNjIwMTMvMDEtYmVzdC1kZWFscy1kLWxpbmstZGFwLXdpcmVsZXNzLXJhbmdlLWV4dGVuZGVyLTYzMC5qcGc=" alt=""/></p><p><strong>Street Price: $90; MSRP: $120; Deal Price: $60</strong></p><p>This is the lowest price we've seen on this Wi-Fi extender. At $60, Newegg is beating the last low price offered by Amazon by $5. The deal includes free shipping.</p><p>The D-Link DAP-1650 is our runner-up pick in our guide on the <a href="http://wrctr.co/1MnE1vy" target="_blank">best Wi-Fi range extender</a>. David Murphy writes, "If our pick is sold out or unavailable, get the D-Link DAP-1650 ($85). Unlike our main pick, it can also be used as a wired access point, if you don't mind stringing Ethernet cable from your router to your extender. As an extender, its long-range performance isn't as good as our pick's, but it's great as an access point."</p><h3/><p><a href="http://wrctr.co/1HM7bBA" target="_blank">Apple iPad Air 2 64GB Wi-Fi Space Gray</a></p><p class="image-container" style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://o.aolcdn.com/images/dar/5845cadfecd996e0372f/f82c5a17ba099d18fdff7a9bf2b92c817d41a34e/aHR0cDovL28uYW9sY2RuLmNvbS9oc3Mvc3RvcmFnZS9taWRhcy84MDFmNzhjNGJjMTY5MDZlMmVlMzRmMmRmNjZmMmRlMC8yMDIzNjIwMTUvMDItYmVzdC1kZWFscy1pcGFkLWFpci0yLTY0Z2Itd2lmaS02MzAuanBn" alt=""/></p><p><strong>Street Price: $540; MSRP: $600; Deal Price: $475</strong></p><p>This is the lowest price we've seen on either the 64GB or 128GB versions of the iPad Air 2, and the sale covers a wide variety of <a href="http://wrctr.co/1JhwddX" target="_blank">colors and models</a>. The recent sales are in part due to a new model likely being released in October, but since that's a good 3 months away, they're still a great buy. The best price we've seen previously on the 64GB was $500. In order to get this deal today you need to be a My Best Buy member (not just an account holder). It's a <a href="http://wrctr.co/1Kn3p5d" target="_blank">relatively pain-free process</a> especially if you already have a Best Buy account, but you won't see this deal price without it.</p><p>The iPad Air 2 with TouchID is our pick for <a href="http://wrctr.co/1Gu6sEO" target="_blank">best tablet</a>. Chris Heinonen and Dan Frakes had this to say about it, "The iPad Air 2 is a fairly decent improvement upon last year's iPad Air in all the ways that matter: it's thinner, lighter, and faster, plus it has a better camera, faster Wi-Fi and LTE (if you use a cellular version), and the ability to log into your device using your thumbprint (TouchID) instead of a PIN."</p><h3/><p><a href="http://wrctr.co/1IgEOIG" target="_blank">Dell Ultrasharp U2415 24-inch LCD IPS Monitor</a></p><p class="image-container" style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://o.aolcdn.com/images/dar/5845cadfecd996e0372f/8db9840d986d6b816b891f3ce03f495750b1b6ce/aHR0cDovL28uYW9sY2RuLmNvbS9oc3Mvc3RvcmFnZS9taWRhcy83YTJkNzEzYzQ5ZGQyYWQ4MThmN2Y3YjlhYThhYzdkMy8yMDIzNjIwMTcvMDMtYmVzdC1kZWFscy1kZWxsLXVsdHJhc2hhcnAtdTI0MTUtMjQtaW5jaC1sY2QtaXBzLW1vbml0b3ItNjMwLmpwZw==" alt=""/></p><p><strong>Street Price: $300; MSRP: $400; Deal Price: $240 with code EMCAVNK23</strong></p><p>This is a match for the lowest price on this monitor. It matches a previous deal from Newegg using a similar code. The deal comes with free shipping, and it beats out the next best price (<a href="http://wrctr.co/1IoKKG3" target="_blank">Adorama</a>) by $60. You'll need to have a Newegg login to use code EMCAVNK23 during checkout.</p><p>Our article on <a href="http://wrctr.co/1gQGWRG" target="_blank">good 24-inch monitors</a> is set to Wait! status while we research new picks, but the Dell U2415 is a current finalist and will be in the updated guide. When I asked David Murphy about it, he said it's got great color accuracy and "all the tricks you'd find in a more expensive, bigger Dell monitor."</p><p>Nathan Edwards added that it "has a fantastic picture, a great ergonomic adjustable stand, and a bunch of USB 3 ports."</p><h3/><p><a href="http://wrctr.co/1HM84dd" target="_blank">Anker 36W 4-Port USB Wall Charger</a></p><p class="image-container" style="text-align:center;"><img src="https://o.aolcdn.com/images/dar/5845cadfecd996e0372f/8bdaee8fa7cec74e48ba6670eb9b87010d25f92f/aHR0cDovL28uYW9sY2RuLmNvbS9oc3Mvc3RvcmFnZS9taWRhcy81MTliOGJiZjVmNjMwNzZjMzZmOGM0YmVjNTFjNzBjMy8yMDIzNjIwMTgvMDQtYmVzdC1kZWFscy1hbmtlci0zNnctNC1wb3J0LXVzYi13YWxsLWNoYXJnZXItNjMwLmpwZw==" alt=""/></p><p><strong>Street Price: $20; MSRP: $30; Deal Price: $16 with code ANK20OFF</strong></p><p>This wall charger has gone on sale before, as low as $15 in the past with codes, but $16 is still a pretty good price. You can get free shipping with Prime. Just use code ANK20OFF at checkout to see the new price.</p><p>This is our main pick for the <a href="http://wrctr.co/1VBprEZ" target="_blank">best USB wall chargers</a>. Nick Guy said, "It's the most powerful charger that plugs directly into a wall outletsomething a plurality of our survey respondents wanted—letting you fast-charge up to three full-sized iPads at once or four at a slower rate It's also physically small compared to the competition, and it's quite affordable."</p><p><i>Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired.

"width": "640px", "height": "480px" } ], "articleBody": "This post was created in partnership with The Wirecutter, a list of the best technology to buy. Read their continuously updated list of deals at TheWirecutter.com.\n\nYou may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.\n \n\n \n \nD-Link DAP-1650 Wireless Range Extender\n\n\n\nStreet Price: $90; MSRP: $120; Deal Price: $60\n\nThis is the lowest price we've seen on this Wi-Fi extender. At $60, Newegg is beating the last low price offered by Amazon by $5. The deal includes free shipping.\n\nThe D-Link DAP-1650 is our runner-up pick in our guide on the best Wi-Fi range extender. David Murphy writes, "If our pick is sold out or unavailable, get the D-Link DAP-1650 ($85). Unlike our main pick, it can also be used as a wired access point, if you don't mind stringing Ethernet cable from your router to your extender. As an extender, its long-range performance isn't as good as our pick's, but it's great as an access point."\n\n\n\nApple iPad Air 2 64GB Wi-Fi Space Gray\n\n\n\nStreet Price: $540; MSRP: $600; Deal Price: $475\n\nThis is the lowest price we've seen on either the 64GB or 128GB versions of the iPad Air 2, and the sale covers a wide variety of colors and models. The recent sales are in part due to a new model likely being released in October, but since that's a good 3 months away, they're still a great buy. The best price we've seen previously on the 64GB was $500. In order to get this deal today you need to be a My Best Buy member (not just an account holder). It's a relatively pain-free process especially if you already have a Best Buy account, but you won't see this deal price without it.\n\nThe iPad Air 2 with TouchID is our pick for best tablet. Chris Heinonen and Dan Frakes had this to say about it, "The iPad Air 2 is a fairly decent improvement upon last year's iPad Air in all the ways that matter: it's thinner, lighter, and faster, plus it has a better camera, faster Wi-Fi and LTE (if you use a cellular version), and the ability to log into your device using your thumbprint (TouchID) instead of a PIN."\n\n\n\nDell Ultrasharp U2415 24-inch LCD IPS Monitor\n\n\n\nStreet Price: $300; MSRP: $400; Deal Price: $240 with code EMCAVNK23\n\nThis is a match for the lowest price on this monitor. It matches a previous deal from Newegg using a similar code. The deal comes with free shipping, and it beats out the next best price (Adorama) by $60. You'll need to have a Newegg login to use code EMCAVNK23 during checkout.\n\nOur article on good 24-inch monitors is set to Wait! status while we research new picks, but the Dell U2415 is a current finalist and will be in the updated guide. When I asked David Murphy about it, he said it's got great color accuracy and "all the tricks you'd find in a more expensive, bigger Dell monitor."\n\nNathan Edwards added that it "has a fantastic picture, a great ergonomic adjustable stand, and a bunch of USB 3 ports."\n\n\n\nAnker 36W 4-Port USB Wall Charger\n\n\n\nStreet Price: $20; MSRP: $30; Deal Price: $16 with code ANK20OFF\n\nThis wall charger has gone on sale before, as low as $15 in the past with codes, but $16 is still a pretty good price. You can get free shipping with Prime. Just use code ANK20OFF at checkout to see the new price.\n\nThis is our main pick for the best USB wall chargers. Nick Guy said, "It's the most powerful charger that plugs directly into a wall outletsomething a plurality of our survey respondents wanted—letting you fast-charge up to three full-sized iPads at once or four at a slower rate It's also physically small compared to the competition, and it's quite affordable."\n\nDeals change all the time, and some of these may have expired.
