Amazon Fire TV Stick was the most popular item purchased during Prime Day 2022

Amazon always boasts about how successful Prime Day was after the big sale event ends, and this year was no different. Amazon says this year’s event was “the biggest Prime Day” ever with “more than 300 million items” purchased and more Amazon devices sold than any other Prime Day. What was different, however, was not mentioning the top-selling item in Amazon’s US press release, as has been the case most years. Thankfully, the UK press release does mention the top-selling item as the 3rd-gen Fire TV Stick, so it’s probably safe to assume it was the top-selling item in the US and other regions as well.

Fire 7 Kids Tablet just dropped to $64.99 for Prime Day — New 2022 model’s first sale ever!

Prime Day is practically over, but Amazon has decided to kick off one last lightning deal on one of its devices and it’s for the all-new Fire 7 Kids tablet for $64.99. That’s 50% off its regular price of $109.99. This deal is noteworthy because this is the brand spanking new 2022 model that was just released a few weeks ago. The non-kids version of the new Fire 7 tablet didn’t get discounted at all for Prime Day this year, so this kids tablet is the only way to get the new hardware at any kind of discount. It’s worth noting that the Fire 8 Kids tablet is still available for $69.99 if you want a bigger screen with similar specs. As always, these tablets come with a 2-year worry-free guarantee and a free 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+.

Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor on sale for $41.99 — New Lowest Price Ever

Amazon has just put its Alexa-compatible Smart Air Quality Monitor on sale for $41.99 for Prime Day, which is 40% off the regular price of $69.99. This is a lightning deal, which means only a certain number of units are going to be available at this price before it sells out. This is only the second time the Amazon Air Quality Monitor has ever been on sale, with the first sale being $14 higher than the deal today. This air monitor was released this past November and can keep track of particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), humidity, and temperature. An LED on top shines green, yellow, and red to indicate the current air quality.

Ethernet Adapter w/ USB OTG Hub for Fire TV Sticks & Cubes on sale for $10.39 — This is the dongle to get!

On sale for Prime Day is the Smays Ethernet Adapter w/ built-in USB OTG Hub for $10.39. While this isn’t a particularly spectacular deal, I know a lot of you just picked up new Fire TV Sticks and Fire TV Cubes during Prime Day and this is easily the best accessory to get for your new or existing Fire TVs. This simple adapter adds a 100 Mbps Ethernet port and 3 full-sized USB-A ports to your Fire TV. It comes with a separate power cable so that it can power a Fire TV Stick while it’s being used. The Ethernet portion is great for a more stable network connection if you have a nearby router. The USB port allows you to expand your device’s internal storage, either for additional apps or for accessing external media, and lets you connect USB peripherals like mice, keyboards, gamepads, and more. The adapter is compatible with all Fire TV Stick models (Standard, Lite, 4K, and 4K Max) except for the original 1st-gen Fire TV Stick from 2014. It’s also compatible with all Fire TV Cube models and the 3rd-gen Fire TV pendant. That said, read this article to understand how external data access differs among Fire TV model, especially if you have a Fire TV Stick 4K. Amazon’s own Fire TV Ethernet adapter is fine, but its biggest flaw is that it doesn’t also pass data through its micro USB connection, so you can use it if you also want to connect something else to the Fire TV. This Smays adapter solves that in a single compact device and that’s why it’s my go-to recommendation for Fire TV Ethernet adapters.
