Anker has been a leader in manufacturing mobile charging accessories for quite some time. Wall chargers, car chargers, portable batteries – you name 'em Anker makes them, and I'm willing to bet a lot of you own one or more of their devices. Today Anker is releasing a new gadget, and it's bigger and more powerful than anything they have ever made before. It's called the Anker Powerhouse and I've been testing one for the past week.
What It Is
The Powerhouse is a lithium-ion power bank with enormous capacity. What kind of capacity are we talking? Well, there are 36 individual batteries in the Powerhouse and each one is rated at 3,350mAh. Read More
You may have heard the name "Anker" a few times, but haven't really paid attention to what they make. Today is your chance to get acquainted because just about everything Anker makes is on sale via Amazon's gold box deal. There are external batteries, cables, car chargers, earbuds—allthethings.jpg, basically. Read More
Anker is running a pretty big campaign in celebration of their new Quick Charge 3.0 chargers with discounts on a ton of products and even smartphone giveaways. This isn't your typical deal alert: there are over a dozen different discounts for products across Amazon US and UK, with everything from chargers to battery packs to cables. The campaign is also running in Germany, and while there aren't any coupon codes for Amazon.de, the prices are comparable to the ones in the US and UK, so be sure to check the source link if you want to order something from inside continental Europe, too.

Wireless charging. It's like charging, but without wires. I didn't understand why it was such a big deal when the first devices came out with Qi charging compatibility. I mean, is it really that hard to plug in a cable to the bottom of your phone? Nah, it really isn't, but man, once you have had a device with wireless charging, it's hard to go back to one without it. It's just so incredibly convenient. Even more convenient than this.
The problem is, good quality wireless chargers are pretty pricey and I think of them as more of a luxury than a necessity. Read More
We have another good deal to share with you all today, this time on a Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger. The charger is an Anker branded unit on Amazon and the price is only $7.99 after entering the coupon code QPPAQPP5 at checkout. That's half off the normal retail price of $15.99 and every bit as good of a bargain as the last charger deal we posted.
The one unique feature the Anker model boasts is that the LED charger indicator changes colors depending on the output. When the light is blue it indicates 5V output and when it's green it indicates 9/12V output. Read More
The Anker 5-port USB charger is a way to take that cluster of chargers that's turning the power strip behind your sofa into a fire hazard and consolidate it down into something manageable. With enough ports to charge five devices at once, you're also freeing up much-needed power outlets.
Last year this hub was available for $16 on Amazon if you used a coupon code that dropped the price down from $20. Those of you who meander over to the device's page today may find that it's gone down a bit since then. That's right, now it's only $12. And no, you don't need to fumble with any promotional codes.

An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative. But today's Amazon Gold Box deal includes a battery that can actually start your car. How's that for flexibility? The Anker gadget (an economical brand name we've come to trust) is going for $59.99, $100 off the retail price.
Technically I suppose this is a car starter that can also charge your gadgets via two USB ports (1 and 2.1 amps, if you're wondering). Read More
Camping season is pretty much over for most of us, but that doesn't mean we've stopped leaving the comfort of our homes to venture into the great unknown. One thing we've got to be sure of is that our bevy of gadgets can survive between sessions with their charging cables. If you'd like to keep your phone, tablet, and assorted wearables alive and kicking, Amazon is offering a pretty sweet deal on the Anker Astro E5 15000mAh Dual USB Portable Charger. With coupon code AASTROE5, you can pick up this portable powerhouse for just $32.99 (plus tax and shipping).
Weighing in at 15,000 mAh, this battery should be enough to recharge most tablets at least twice, and several times for any phone. Read More
If you want to charge all the things in one spot, you're probably going to need more USB ports. Today we've come across an Anker 40W USB charging station rocking five of them. We previously pointed one of these out back at the beginning of this year, and this model is just like that one, only better. Rather than 25W, we're looking at 40.
Since this model spits out more juice, the price is slightly higher. Instead of $19.99, it's going for $25.99. But there's a way to bring that number right back down to 20 bucks. Just enter the coupon code 20DF7105 at checkout to knock $6 off the price. Read More
Around these parts, we like our gadgets. Unfortunately, accumulating a couple of them leaves us regularly in need of juice. Power outlets become scarce after stepping outside the house, which is why it's worth picking up an external battery pack or two. Currently you can get an Anker Astro E5 15,000mAh battery pack for $49.99 from Amazon, but with a coupon code, you can bring that down to $35.99.
This external battery comes with two USB ports (5V/2A and 5V/1A), so you can charge two devices at once. This could especially come in handy the next time the power goes out or two kids (for the sake of this example, ages 25 plus or minor 15 years) both throw a fit over dying devices in the backseat.
