Wirecutter’s best deals: Save $60 on a Eufy RoboVac 11S

Mar 5, 2020 11:30 PM ET

Jabra’s Elite 85h Bluetooth headphones have also seen a hefty price drop.

Whether you’re jumping into the world of rechargeable batteries or just looking to add a few AAs to your setup, this is a nice deal for a four pack of one of our top picks. Typically priced around $12, this drop to $9 matches the low we’ve seen. All of our picks performed about the same in our testing, the Panasonic Eneloop is currently the least expensive if you want a four pack. We saw an especially good deal for an 8-pack last week, but if you only need a few, this is a worthwhile discount.

The Panasonic Eneloop AA Rechargeable Batteries are one of top brands we picked in our guide to the best rechargeable batteries. Wirecutter Staff Writer Sarah Witman wrote, “In our testing, three brands of AA rechargeable batteries—the AmazonBasics AA, Energizer Recharge Universal AA, and Panasonic Eneloop AA—performed about the same. They will keep your lights lit and your clickers clicking longer, can be recharged thousands of times over, and are widely available and inexpensive. We think you should get whichever one of the three is cheapest at the time of checkout.”

Jabra Elite 85h Bluetooth Headphones

Jabra Elite 85h Bluetooth Headphones

Street price: $240; deal price: $192

The Jabra Elite 85h in the titanium black finish is down to $192, a rare and exceptional deal on a pair of Bluetooth headphones we recommend. Along with their great sound and great design, these headphones have an intuitive set up and easily accessible controls, making them a great choice if you’re in the market for over-ear Bluetooth headphones. This price is better than deals we commonly see for this pick, so if you like the black color it comes in, don’t miss out on this deal.

The top pick in our guide to the best Bluetooth Wireless Headphones, the Jabra Elite 85h is the ideal combination of sound and design. Wirecutter Senior Staff Writer Lauren Dragan wrote, “There is an elegant simplicity to the design of the Jabra Elite 85h over-ear headphones, which may not sound like a big deal—unless you’re familiar with the myriad small annoyances present in most of the competition. Whereas other Bluetooth headphones can have confusing and fiddly buttons that often cause you to trigger the wrong task, the Elite 85h has straightforward controls and a painless pairing process across all device platforms. This pair works with Amazon, Apple, and Google’s digital assistants, too. The sound quality is great for both music and phone calls, the headphones fit comfortably, and the set features a 36-hour battery life. Plus, you get passable noise cancellation and a two-year warranty against rain damage.”

TaoTronics TT-BR009 Bluetooth Adapter

TaoTronics TT-BR009 Bluetooth Adapter

Street price: $24; deal price: $20 w/ on-page coupon

Whether you’re looking to finally use your expensive wired headphones with your phone over Bluetooth, or want a Bluetooth solution to connect your phone to an older car, this is a solid deal on our runner-up pick for best Bluetooth headphone adapter. The TT-BR009 sounds nearly as good as a wired connection, and has a battery that lasts nearly 15 hours. This is the first deal we’ve seen for this pick, so now is the time to buy; clip the on-page coupon to get the deal price.

As mentioned above, the TaoTronics TT-BR009 is the runner up in our guide to the best Bluetooth headphone adapter. R. Matthew Ward and Daniel Varghese wrote, “If our pick is sold out, the TaoTronics TT-BR009 is an excellent alternative. Its audio quality, ease of pairing, control options, and Bluetooth range are comparable to those of our top pick, and it has a much longer battery life (15 hours) and a slightly better microphone. However, because this adapter is mainly designed for use in a car, it doesn’t have a clip for securing to your clothes, and it relies on the older Micro-USB connection for charging, so we think our top pick is the better option.”

Eufy RoboVac 11S

Eufy RoboVac 11SStreet price: $220; deal price: $160

Down to $160 in both colors, this is a great deal on the Eufy RoboVac 11S, a budget robot vacuum we recommend. This affordable and efficient model was the quietest from our testing, and thanks to its slim profile it can fit under more furniture than the rest of our picks. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for the 11s, but deals under $160 rarely come about. Both colors being on sale isn’t very common, so if you’re in the market for a robot vacuum, take advantage of this deal while it lasts.

Considerably cheaper than our other picks, the Eufy RoboVac 11s is the budget pick in our guide to the best robot vacuum. Wirecutter Senior Staff Write Liam McCabe wrote, “The Eufy RoboVac 11S stands out as the quietest robot we’ve ever tested, as well as the shortest, so it may end up cleaning more of your home than other bots just because it fits beneath more stuff. It’s a good-enough cleaner for homes with bare floors and short rugs, and it can cost much less than the Roomba 600 series when it’s on sale. The RoboVac 11S was even the top pick in this guide for a couple of years. However, over time we’ve realized that, unlike the basic Roomba models, the 11S and other Eufy RoboVac bots are not durable, nor are they built to be repaired.”
