Singles Day 11.11 2019 Banggood Shopping Guide
Singles Day is coming up again! Soon it will be the 11th of the 11th. In China, it is “Singles Day” that day (“Guanggun Jie”, “bachelor day”). This holiday has gradually become one of the largest online shopping days, comparable to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And that means many discounts and offers at most major webshops. A good time to buy gadgets and electronics!
Singles Day: Discounts at Banggood
As a Chinese webshop, Banggood can of course not be left behind on Singles Day and the shop, therefore, has a big impact. I bought a lot of the hardware, electronics, and gadgets on this blog from Banggood. A number of those items have been considerably reduced in price during this event, so it is worth checking them out again. Below is a small selection of offers that may be of interest to you.
Baofeng UV-9R Plus Radio
This radio is one of the successors of the Baofeng UV-5R. Functionally there is little difference, it is mainly the appearance that is tinkered with. You can program it just like the UV-5R with a USB interface and the free CHIRP software. And of course, you can also use this as a cheap and simple 128-channel radio scanner. Baofeng is known for its excellent quality for an unprecedentedly low price, this offer adds to that.
Baofeng UV-9R Plus 10W Upgrade Version Two Way Radio VHF UHF Walkie Talkie for CB Ham
Sonoff Basic Smart Switch
Just like Baofeng, Sonoff is known for its good quality for an almost impossibly low price. To a large extent, they owe that reputation to the Sonoff Basic. That smart switch is good and very cheap. In addition, it is also hackable: you can easily put another firmware on it and integrate it into your DIY home automation project. But even without modifications, it is a good and usable device. And when you thought it couldn’t be cheaper, Banggood came up with this offer …
SONOFF® Basic 10A 2200W WIFI Wireless Smart Switch Remote Control Socket
Sonoff S26 Smart Plug
If you want a good and affordable smart switch but one that you can use straight out of the box, then the Sonoff S26 is more for you. This plug is easily plugged into the socket. Then just install the app and you can get started. The S26 is a compact and inexpensive version of the Sonoff S20 smart plug that was mentioned earlier on this blog. And just like the Sonoff S20 and Sonoff Basic, this switch is hackable: you can easily put an alternative firmware on it.
