Today's daily deals for Friday, August 18 include some truly random back to school picks like an Radeon RX 6800 GPU (almost RTX 3080 equivalent) for $429, a Secretlab Titan EVO gaming chair promo, a 2TB PS5 SSD for only $86, WiFi RGB LED light bulbs for only $3.55 apiece, and more.
Silicon Power 2TB PS5 SSD with Heatsink for $85.97
The Silicon Power XS70 SSD with a preinstalled robust aluminum heatsink costs well under $100. The aluminum heatsink is still slim enough to fit in the PS5 without obstruction. It boasts transfer speeds of up to 7300MB/s read and 6800MB/s write, comfortably faster than the 5500MB/s minimum recommended requirement. It actually performs a little better than the Crucial P5 Plus, the original WD Black SN850, and the Samsung 980 Pro, although that won't make a difference in your PS5.

The Radeon RX 6800 is only about 5%-10% slower than an NVIDIA RTX 4070. At its current deal price, it's a whopping $170 cheaper than an RTX 4070.

Buy a Secretlab Titan Evo Gaming Chair, Get a Free Secretlab SKINS
It's no secret that we love our Secretlab gaming chairs. We've consistently rated them as the best high-end gaming chair on the market, as well as the best gaming chair for "big and tall" gamers. Of all the gaming chairs we covered in our "Budget to Best" roundup video earlier this year, Akeem considered the Secretlab Titan Evo to be the most comfortable.
From now until August 23, Secretlab is offering a Free Secretlab SKINS when you purchase a select Titan Evo gaming chair (which starts at $629). Redeeming the free SKINS is simple. Place an order for your Titan EVO and you'll receive an email with the redemption code within 5 days after it ships out. Secretlab SKINS are upholstered covers that completely change the look of your chair. They are a great way to redesign your space without having to shell big bucks on yet another gaming chair. They normally retail for $169 apiece so getting a free one is a pretty generous offering considering Secretlab chairs are rarely discounted.
Xbox Series S Gilded Hunter Console Bundle for $249.99
Best Buy is offering $50 off an Xbox Series S console. It's currently the best deal right now on the disc-less current generation console. As an added bonus, this is the Gilded Hunter edition which includes nine in-game cosmetics and virtual currency for Fortnite, Rocket League, and Fall Guys. If you play any of those three games, the extras are just icing on the cake.
LEGO Icons Back to The Future Delorean Time Machine for $160
Amazon is currently offering the LEGO Icons Back to The Future Time Machine (Delorean) 10300 building kit for $160, a $40 price drop from its $200 MSRP. This is basically a 3-in-1 kit. You get to choose which type of Delorean time machine you want to build. Each movie from the Back to the Future Trilogy had a different car design, and the instructions and part materials allow you to build any of those three (but you can only build one at a time). The Delorean from the first movie features the lightning rod and plutonium chamber. The Delorean from the second movie has fold-down hover conversion tires as well as a Mr Fusion energy reactor. The Delorean from the third movie has stylish whitewall tires and a hood mounted circuit board.
Anker Transformers Optimus Prime Edition 10,000mAh Power Bank and 65W Wall Charger Hybrid for $69.99
Amazon is offering a really cool Anker Transformers: Optimus Prime themed 10,000mAh Power Bank and 65W Wall Charger Hybrid for $69.99 after a $30 coupon that you can clip on the product page. If you're looking for an all-in-one solution for both when you're at home and when you roll out, and you want it in an attractive design, this is most definitely the device you're looking for.
The Anker device itself is certainly more than meets the eye. This is a power bank and wall charger in one. What that means is that there's a 10,000mAh battery pack to charge your mobile devices on the go. However, it can also transform into a fast charging AC adapter with its built-in retractable plug so you can switch to using grid power whenever it's available.
ADDTAM 3-Outlet Power Strip with 4 USB Ports for $10.89
Amazon is offering an ADDTAM 3-Outlet 4-Port Power Strip for only $10.89 after a 36% off coupon code "GUEN5FQ8". The power strip has three AC outlets and four USB ports. There are two USB Type-C ports and two USB Type-A ports. The USB Type-C ports can charge at 5V/3A (15W) and the USB Type-A ports can charge at 5V/2.4A (12W) with a max of 22.5W at any given moment. The extension cord is about 5 feet long, which should be enough cordage to get this closer to your desktop. The plug head is flat so it won't stick out and it is angled by 45 degrees so it won't block your other outlet. What's rare about this little strip compared to others is that it is easily wall or desk mountable. Instead of using annoying keyholes on the back of the strip, this one has screw mounts on either side of it. A final note, this strip is ETL and FCC certified and conforms to the UL standard.
