Anker makes everything from robot vacuums to wireless earbuds, but portable chargers are the brand’s bread and butter. They’ve always been pretty reasonably priced, but right now, Amazon is offering discounts on some of the most popular Anker charging devices. Many of the best options are 20%-25% off.
Whether you need something compact to top off your iPhone during your train commute or you want a hefty charger capable of powering up a laptop during an outage, there’s probably an Anker charger that’s on sale right now that’ll check off that box. In fact, it’s worth picking up a few different Anker chargers for different situations. Read on for some of the best deals on Anker chargers that you can buy right now.
1. Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 PD
The PowerCore Slim 10000 is a great everyday option. It’s especially handy if you have USB-C devices, which are rapidly becoming the standard, save for a few holdouts (looking at you, Apple). The PowerCore has enough power to recharge most phones at least twice. Plus, you can use it to charge two devices at once; there’s a USB-A port and a USB-C port. One USB-C to USB-C cable is included, although you might need to add on a USB-C wall adapter to recharge the PowerCore itself, as one is not included.
2. Anker Power Bank PowerCore III Elite 25600
The PowerCore III Elite 25600 has plenty of power despite its compact size. It’s just over 7″ x 3″, meaning it’s just a little bigger than most smartphones. It weighs just over a pound, so while it may be bulky for a pocket, it won’t weigh your laptop bag down. It’s capable of recharging a MacBook Pro almost one and a half times and an iPhone nearly six times. It can be used to charge multiple devices at once; the unit has one USB-C port and two USB-A ports. The power bank also comes with a USB-C cable and a PowerPort III 65W Pod wall adapter (which alone retails for $40). Right now, it’s on sale for $130, down 20% from the $160 list price.
3. Anker PowerCore+ Mini
Anker modeled the PowerCore+ Mini after a tube of lipstick, making it one of the most convenient and portable options to keep in your sling bag or jeans’ pocket. It may not be ideal for, say, a power outage or a multi-day camping trip. But for daily use, it’ll top up most phones with enough juice for the day. The brand’s charging stats don’t cover the most recent phones, but for reference, the PowerCore+ Mini should power up an iPhone X and a Galaxy S9 to 80% capacity and 79%, respectively.
4. Anker Portable Power Station PowerHouse 200
Your emergency kit probably has enough water bottles, snacks and medical supplies. But do you have enough electricity? In an outage, the Anker PowerHouse 200 can help keep lights, mini fridges and CPAP machines going for hours. It provides 213Wh/57600 mAh of power, enough for 3-6 laptop charges, up to 31 phone charges and 2-5 hours of power for a mini fridge. Of course, it’s not just for emergencies. It’s a great travel buddy for outdoor excursions and camping trips. It weighs a modest 6 pounds and has a comfortable carrying strap to easily take it on the go. Right now, it’s $60 off, meaning you can buy this $230 power station for $170.
