Wedn: Aukey USB-C Wall Chargers and Mechanical Keyboards

And we conclude the Hump Day daily deals with some charging action at the Amazon USA Gold Box, there is an Aukey Sale featuring their various USB-C wall chargers, along with mechanical keyboards and bluetooth speakers. Aukey is a brand that is competing with Anker on the affordable but fairly good quality electronics and computer accessories.

Per the Amazon product page, I purchased this $32 mechanical keyboard a couple of years ago. This has blue switches, and I of course did not purchase it for gaming but for blog-post typing. It certainly makes a difference over conventional keyboards ~ if nothing else the clickety-clack of the mechanical keys is some sort of a stress relief 🙂 The product description explains how to change the keyboard lights. You can also turn them off completely. Just press the Fn button with other keys together while standing on your left leg and singing jazz 😉
