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. That brand is Anker—and today only, Anker charging devices are on sale for up to 42 percent off as part of Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals shopping event.
The deal I’m particularly excited about is the Anker PowerCore 10000—one of the smallest, most lightweight power banks on the market that reliably provides up to three and a half charges to your iPhone or Android device while you’re on the go. Today only, the Anker PowerCore 10000 is 33 percent off on Amazon.
If I didn’t already own (and swear by) this gadget, I’d jump on this deal myself—so I guess I’ll just have to put this little dynamo under the Christmas tree instead. An Anker power bank is the perfect present 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.
I used to have to dip into coffee shops between meetings if I wanted to arrive with a fully powered phone—and in my worst moments, I’ve covertly borrowed electricity from public power outlets in airport terminals, retail stores, supermarkets, and the foyers of offices that are not mine.
“First-world problem” as it may be, my life requires me to be constantly connected. My Anker has been going strong for more than a year, and honestly, I couldn’t live without it at this point.
Almost 10,000 five-star Amazon reviewers agree. “How much do I like (love?) this device?,” one wrote in an ode to Anker. “Enough to order a replacement immediately after losing my original one. My Anker PowerCore 10000 can charge my Pixel, my wife's iPhone and a few other devices on a single charge...I never worry as long as I have it with me. And, it's small enough to fit in my pocket.”
Anker Quick Charge Car Charger
Constantly in your car? There’s an Anker charging device that’s just for you—and it’s also part of Amazon’s big Anker sale. Today only, the Anker Quick Charge Car Charger is 42 percent off.
Hit the road with this double-USB device and it’ll charge two devices at once up to 80 percent in just 35 minutes. In other words, get in the car with two dead cell phones or a dead iPad, for instance, and get out of the car with an almost fully charged one.
Yes, this one also has thousands of rave reviews. One shopper called the device “the real deal, and wrote, “Once again, Anker ‘knocks it out if the park’ with this charger. I can confirm that this works flawlessly and will Quick Charge anything that you plug it in to. This is an excellent investment.”
The Anker fan club is coming out in droves for this charger, in fact. “Not only 5 stars for the product, but 5 stars for the company,” another shopper wrote after having an excellent experience with Anker’s customer service, which provided a replacement for an old charger for free. “Anker customer for life!”
Anker 100W 4-Port Type-C Charging Station
Traveling with a whole family’s worth of digital gadgets? Amazon’s Anker sale includes products that let you charge three or more devices at once, too.
The Anker 100W 4-Port Type-C Charging Station has the power two charge two laptops and two cell phones simultaneously—and it saves an hour of charging time compared to its peers.
“You're not going to realize how useful this power strip is until you don't have access to one on a regular basis,” advises one shopper. “It eliminates any headache of finding a charger or adapter, and/or having trouble only using every other receptacle for larger bulky transformers. The fairly long line makes it easy to plug in further away and locate the power strip right where you need it.”
This lightweight little wonder is 30 percent off today only.
Shop Amazon’s entire sale on Anker charging products right here—trust me, there’s something for every lifestyle. All of it is up to 42 percent today only. Treat yourself to the gift of modern convenience.
