As a person who travels frequently, runs around constantly, and is forever far away from a wall outlet, I can attest to the fact that a portable power bank is a life changer. Ever since I started carrying one in my purse everywhere I go, I haven’t had to deal with a dead iPhone. My power bank is one of the most convenient things I own, hands down.

Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that there are plenty of duds on the market. One brand, however, is the clear standout, and every single tech geek, fellow traveler, and all-around busy person I’ve spoken to agrees. Today on Amazon, one of Anker’s bestselling chargers and a ton more of the brand’s charging accessories more up to 45 percent off today.

The deal I’m particularly excited about is the Anker PowerCore 2000 Redux Portable Charger—one of the smallest, most lightweight power banks on the market that reliably provides up to five charges to your iPhone or Android device while you’re on the go. Right now, the Anker PowerCore 20100 Portable Charger is 32 percent off on Amazon. 

If I didn’t already own (and swear by) this gadget, I’d jump on this deal myself. An Anker power bank is perfect for anyone who uses their phone way too much to deal with being a slave to power outlets and just needs a full, on-demand charge—and fast. 

My Anker has been going strong for more than a year, and honestly, I couldn’t live without it at this point.

Amazon reviewers seem to agree. “What’s the the saying, good things come in small packages,” one fan wrote. “Easily placed in any pocket of your bag. Holds charge like no other power bank around. Charges my iPhone quickly and multiple times before needing to be recharged...I would and have recommended this.”

Always on the go, like me? Keep these durable nylon cables in your bag—they’re designed to stand up to wear and tear while keeping your lightning devices fully charged at all times. That includes iPhone 11, X, and more. It also juices up the iPad Pro first and second generation as well as AirPods.

The three-foot Anker cable charges each devices lightning fast too—up to 50 percent in just half and hour, and safely because the device is MFi certified.

Fans are fired up. “I’ve used a lot of charging cables from different brands and I seem to come back to Anker because they are solid,’ one wrote. “You can bend these over and over and they will not fray like many of my OEM Apple cables. I carry this cable in my jeans pocket and it can take the bending and jarring while I walk around.”

“I never thought a power strip could be a game changer, but this one is,” added another excited and clever shopper. “I was able to plug in 5 video game consoles, an external hard drive, a charger for game controllers, an Apple TV, a lightening charger, a Sonos sound bar, a Sonos sub and my Samsung TV. And it didn’t require playing Tetris to determine how the plugs could all fit.”

This lightweight little wonder is 36 percent off right now.
