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 😉

Still Good: Aukey USB-C 2-Slot Reader (SD, microSD) for $2

The new condition Aukey USB-C 2-Slot Card Reader that reads full size SD and microSD memory cards continues to be on sale for $2 at Amazon, sold by Aukey Direct with the order fulfilled by Amazon. This is an Add-On item, so you must needs place an order of $25+ in order to buy it. You can buy up to thirty of these.

I purchased it the last time I posted about it, and it just came in with today’s mail. I took it out of the packaging, picked up a random memory card, and connected it to a laptop. It worked! As expected, it feels like a $5 gadget in terms of construction and material, it’s definitely not going to be mistaken for a Sandisk Extreme Professional card reader 🙂

Here’s a flash-y close-up of the two card reader connectors:
