If you’re planning on fleeing the country taking a trip overseas anytime soon, you’ll want to pack this universal outlet adapter, which can convert a UK/EU/US/AUS AC outlet into any other type of outlet, and includes four USB ports for your mobile devices too. I just used this exact model on a trip to France and…
Anker’s reader-favorite PowerLine charging cables have blossomed into an entire line of different products, and it hasn’t always been clear which one was the best:
Solar USB chargers are great for camping trips, but they can also give you peace of mind if you’re ever stuck in a situation without electricity for any extended period. Two different models from Aukey are on sale today (a 28W model and a 21W model), just be sure to note the promo codes.
Update 6/12/2018: Jackery no longer makes the Jewel, but Nomad now has a similar product. Its cable is braided, and includes a silicone cable tie, and more importantly, the battery has over six times the capacity. But at $50, it’s also significantly more expensive.
Anker’s PowerPort line of multi-port USB chargers are our readers’ favorites, and this model is one of the few that includes USB-C Power Delivery, which outputs up to 30W to power devices like the new MacBooks, or even a Nintendo Switch. It normally sells for $54, but Anker’s knocked that down to $37 today, and a $5…
Smart outlet switches are the atomic unit of smart home gear, and you can add two more to your collection today for just $35. Just like the iconic WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone or Alexa, or set schedules to toggle them automatically.
USB-C Power Delivery is the future, and you can add it to your car with this $15 charger (with promo code AUKEYCY7). In addition to a regular USB port, you get a 27W USB-C port that can charge a MacBook or Nintendo Switch at nearly full speed. If your laptops run off of USB-C anyway, this is a much sleeker solution…
There are precious few battery packs out there with USB-C power delivery, and this 26,500mAh model from Aukey is one of the biggest and most affordable we’ve seen.
We’ve seen USB battery packs that can jump start a car, and we’ve seen USB battery packs that can charge MacBooks and Nintendo Switches, but this is the first we’ve found that can do both.
Update: Code is working now, if you were having trouble earlier.
Anker makes smart plugs now, because Anker makes everything, and the compact model is down to an all-time low $18 today with promo code DGY8TLE6, while supplies last.
RAVPower’s newest battery pack is very similar to the reader-favorite Anker PowerCore Fusion, but with double the battery capacity (10,000mAh vs. 5,000mAh). For a battery pack that plugs directly into an AC outlet, that does mean that it might be more susceptible to falling out of worn out, loose-fitting outlets, but…
Before you flee the country and/or go on your next international trip, be sure to pick up this universal plug adapter for $10 with code ABCDE555. It’ll turn basically any outlet in the world into any other outlet type, and also includes a USB port so you can plug your phone straight in.
RAVPower’s HyperAir Qi charging pad is one of the few models out there to support 7.5W iPhone charging (iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X only), and you can save $10 on it today with promo code NEWRP034.
Portable battery packs with USB ports are a dime-a-dozen, but your options are a lot more limited if you need a portable AC outlet. The Jackery PowerBar though is a great option at a solid price.
The long-awaited release of Qi-compatible iPhones has led to an explosion in popularity for wireless charging pads, so it’s no surprise that Anker’s most popular model would join our Bestsellers club.
There aren’t a ton of 60W USB-C Power Delivery wall chargers out there, let alone those with two extra standard USB ports, but this one from Aukey is just $40 today with promo code AUKEYPY2. With enough power for a phone, a tablet, and a MacBook Pro or Nintendo Switch, it’s highly likely this is the only charger you…
The vast majority of USB-C Power Delivery-capable battery packs top out at 30W of output, which is great for a 12" MacBook or a Nintendo Switch, but is a little underpowered for, say, a MacBook Pro.
It’s time to purge your life of vile microUSB cables. This Anker PowerCore 13,000mAh battery pack replaces the standard microUSB input with a USB-C port, and also includes a USB-C cable for recharging. That’s literally the only difference between this and a standard PowerCore—the USB-C port is only for recharging the…
If you’re making the switch to rechargeable batteries, the best place to start is the Eneloop Power Pack. With eight AAs, two AAAs, two C and D spacers, and a charger, it has everything you need to fit most battery-powered electronics you have in your house.
