Winter is coming. Actually, here in Michigan, winter seems to have been delayed, but guess who does not complain? This guy.
Remote Car Starter Installation Best Buy
But the cold will soon arrive here, that’s why you might want to consider finally installing a long distance car starter.
Like this: For a limited time, Best Buy has a Start System Compustar CS4202-S-Kit with Geek Squad installation for $ 249.99 (plus tax). Regular Price: $ 700!
First things first: This is not an eco-friendly addition to your vehicle. Quite the contrary: Let your car stand for 4-5 minutes while the heating (or cooling) may not be good for the planet.
That said, I do not know if the remote started representing any form of major contribution to 27 percent of greenhouse gases generated by transportation. I know that when I piled my family into a warm minivan when the cold wind was below 20, we were all much happier.
The Compustar Kit offers two-way communication, which means the remote LED will blink to confirm that your car has actually started. (I’ve used the one-way remote before, and trust me when I say it to find your car does not, in fact, start.)
Of particular interest: There is an optional module – DroneMobile, currently $ 150 installed – that adds smartphone control and GPS tracking.
All other features are listed on the Compustar product page. I am not an expert in this category, but it all looks pretty sweet to me – much better than the lower class beginners I have.
The big question here is whether this kit is compatible with your vehicle, and whether you will see any additional charges. My suggestion: Contact your local Best Buy first and speak with a car technician.
Bonus deal: Time for reruns, but at a significantly lower price!
The desktop charger is a very useful item to store on your desk, kitchen table, bedside table, anywhere. And if you have a device that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology, you should make sure your hub works.
Like this: For a limited time, Chuwi (via Amazon) has a four-port USB Hi-Dock USB charger costing $ 13.99, shipped free for Prime customers.
This air-powered hub offers two important features. First, it has one Quick Charge 3.0 port, which is clearly marked in orange. (The other three: smart 2.4A ports.) Secondly, all ports are protected by an open cover to make your phone stand! And you know I like anything that doubles. (It can actually hold two phones, one on either side.)
Side note: Does Fakespot report a lot of questionable reviews for this product? Yes. Does that mean it’s not a good product? No. I bought it myself; it works as advertised and I really like it – especially at this price.
Bonus deal 2: So help me, I’m a sucker for anything that lights up – like, say, a USB cable. For a limited time, and as long as inventory still exists, iOrange-E (via Amazon) has a 6-foot USB-C with an LED status indicator lit for $ 6.99. That’s after applying the 6449F5SV promo code upon checkout. (Tested and verified at 5 am PT.) Regular price: $ 12.
The C-Type Cable connector red-blinks when your device is charging, then turns green when fully charged. So not only super-cool, but also practical: you can know from across the room when charging is complete.
On top of that, these are braided and tangled wires. What’s not to like?
