We’ve got all of Thursday’s best discounts now up for grabs courtesy of our friends over at 9to5Toys. On tap this afternoon, Apple’s cellular 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro has called to a new all-time low at $299 off. That’s joined by Satechi’s new Duo Wireless Charging Stand, which is on sale for one of the very first times at $85. And last up, M2 MacBook owners looking to build out a workstation can score OWC’s latest Thunderbolt 4 hub at just $120. Hit the jump for all of the best deals and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Apple’s cellular 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro sees $299 discount to best price yet
Apple’s new M2 devices have been hogging much of the spotlight as of late, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something to be said for the previous-generation lineup, too. A shining example of this is the 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro, which still delivers a flagship experience that is now even more compelling thanks to a discount at Woot. Available through the end of the day, the Wi-Fi + Cellular 128GB capacity model now sells for $999.99. Prime members will lock-in free shipping, while those who aren’t subscribed will have a flat $6 delivery fee added to their order. This is down from the usual $1,299 going rate in order to deliver a new all-time low at $299 off. For comparison, the new M2 model currently goes for that price at Amazon right now, as well.
Even now that the new 2022 model has arrived, the now previous-generation iPad Pro still provides a compelling iPadOS experience centered around a Liquid Retina XDR display with 1,600 nits of peak brightness and ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate. That’s of course alongside an M1 chip to power the experience which is backed by Thunderbolt connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Apple Pencil support, and Face ID. So if the differences between the new M2 and older M1 models aren’t all that important, today’s discount is a notable way to bring home a flagship tablet for far less with the added perk of cellular connectivity.

Satechi’s new Duo Wireless Charging Stand provides portable iPhone 14 power
Satechi’s official Amazon storefront is now offering its new Duo Wireless Charger Stand and Power Bank for $85. Having just launched at the very end of last year, today’s offer lands at 20% off the usual $100 price tag. It’s still one of the very first chances to save, and comes within $5 of the all-time low set during a limited-time launch promotion.
Arriving as Satechi’s latest multi-device charger, the Duo Wireless Stand takes to refueling your gear while on-the-go with a built-in battery. Its 10,000mAh capacity is primed to handle topping off your iPhone 14 several times over, as well as giving some extra usage to AirPods and anything else that can plug in with a USB-C cable. We explore what to expect in a recent Tested with 9to5Toys review, too.

OWC’s latest Thunderbolt 4 hub complements your M2 Mac at $120
OWC’s official Amazon storefront currently offers its new Thunderbolt 4 Hub for $120. After just launching last fall, this is still one of the first discounts to date thanks to the drop from its usual $179 going rate. The $59 in savings today stack up to a new all-time low at $10 under our previous mention, too.
Delivering one of the more compact offerings on the market for a Thunderbolt 4 hub, this offering from OWC packs four ports which are accessible via the single TB4 cable that plugs into your Mac or other compatible device. There are notably three Thunderbolt 4 ports which gives you the flexibility to outfit your MacBook with whatever adapters or drives your setup calls for. It even has a 60W power passthrough for powering your device from that single cable, as well as a USB-A slot to round out the package. Our hands-on review offers a better idea of what to expect from the experience.
Twelve South’s new SurfacePad for iPhone 14 hits $45
Last month, we just took a hands-on look at one of the latest additions to Twelve South’s stable of iPhone accessories. The new SurfacePad for iPhone 14 impressed with its premium build and convenient design, and now the company is offering a rare chance to save. Celebrating our takeway that this is the best leather folio on the market (our words, not theirs), Twelve South is now taking $5 off for one of the very first times. The SurfacePad now sells for $45 when you drop down the menu to select any of the iPhone 14 series handsets. This is a rare markdown in any case and the second-best price we’ve seen so far, only being bested back over the holiday season. We break down what to expect in our hands-on review.
Arriving with a napa leather build, Twelve South’s SurfacePad manages to stand out from the competetion with a novel design that adheres right to the back of your device. There’s no bumper case or anything to actually add bulk to your handset, just the premium leather build which folds over your new iPhone 14. In the folio part are two card slots which can hold IDs, cash, and credit cards, all while providing some extra protection with a felt lining that keeps your screen safe. Throw in MagSafe support for taking advantage of Apple’s magnetic charging and mounting features, and it’s a compelling option for slimming down your everyday carry.
We break down what to expect from the full experience in our recent Tested with 9to5Toys review. Though not to spoil too much, I walked away quite favorably after daily driving the cover for a few weeks. It held up well to daily wear, and even after taking the case on and off plenty of times, the adhesive never lost its grip strength. It’s also just a gorgeous case, too! Feast your eyes on how well the Napa leather complements the stainless steel rails on the iPhone 14 Pro.
Anker’s GaNPrime PowerCore 65W power bank hits $70
Anker today courtesy of its official Amazon storefront is now discounting its lineup of recently-released GaNPrime chargers. Headlining all of the price cuts this time around, the new GaNPrime PowerCore 65W is a standout offer at $70. Normally fetching $100, you’re looking at 30% in savings alongside one of the first chances to save since its debut late last fall. This undercuts our previous mention by $10, and matches the all-time low set just once before.
Anker’s new GaNPrime PowerCore 65W arrives as a hybrid charger for your Apple set that combines a USB-C GaN wall adapter with a portable battery. Its 65W output can be spread over its dual USB-C ports, as well as a USB-A slot and leverages the built-in 10,000mAh internal battery to refuel away from home. I adore the built-in AC plug that also makes recharging a breeze. Our Tested with 9to5Toys review offers a closer look at what to expect.
