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.

iClever BoostCube USB Travel Charger

Street price: $11; MSRP: $30; deal price: $8 with code GYD97P5N

While not a huge sale, it's a few bucks off and at $8, an affordable price if you want to stock up on a few to keep in your car or luggage. Use the code GYD97P5N at the final step of checkout to get this price.

The iClever BoostCube USB is our travel pick in our multiport USB wall charger guide. Nick Guy said, "Only a little bigger than Apple's own iPad charger, iClever's wall adapter has twice the ports and twice the power at half the price."

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Quadcopter

Street price: $770; MSRP: $1000; deal price: $740

While we expect even better deals to show up since DJI is releasing the Phantom 4 soon, and the street price on the Phantom 3 Advanced has dropped to $770, we think $740 is an excellent price for a drone of this quality.

The DJI Phantom 3 Advanced is our pick for the best drone for aerial photographers and videographers. Mike Perlman and Eric Hansen said, "We believe that the Advanced is the best choice for most people—that is, those who have no need to produce 4K video, who lack computer hardware that can handle editing that format, or who don't have demanding shooting schedules that require constant battery swaps."

Sony XBA-H1 Headphones

Street price: $150; MSRP: $150; deal price: $130

This isn't the best price we've seen; these headphones once sold for around $90. However, it's been over a year since they were that cheap. You'll still save $20 off the street price with this deal, which is the first sale we've seen in ages.

The Sony XBA-H1 is the step-up pick in our guide on the best $100 in-ear headphones. Lauren Dragan said, "The Sonys sound fantastic. No one frequency is overly peaked. The highs are clear and delicate with tremendous detail. The lows are full and pack a punch without muddying up or overpowering anything else. The mids sound authentic and precise. The result? Your music sounds better than ever."

Google Nexus 6P 32GB Smartphone

Street price: $500; MSRP: $500; deal price: $450 + $50 Gift Card

This deal has been around for a bit in a couple of different forms. We've seen the phone's price drop to $425 and we've seen the gift card bonus as high as $75. The current deal isn't as good as either of those, but it's still one of the best we've seen. However, with all the 6P deals recently, you'll want to consider whether you'll use that Newegg gift card anytime soon versus just waiting for a lower price.

The Nexus 6P is the phablet pick in our guide on the best Android phones. Ryan Whitwam said, "It's our favorite Android phone of any we've used this year. The 6P runs pure Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sports a top-of-the-line 1440p Super AMOLED screen, and has an attractive unibody aluminum frame. On the back is one of the best cameras available on a smartphone, along with a Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner that's even faster and more accurate than the one on the Galaxy S6."
