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.

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.

The trend with external batteries is to make them smaller and more portable while packing in as much capacity as possible. The new second generation Anker Pro2 doesn't so much eschew that trend as it takes the capacity thing way to the extreme. This external battery has a whopping 20,000mAh capacity, which obviously impacts the size. Still, it's somewhat slim for having so much juice. Should you make the room?

Update: The coupon code has already expired. Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles.

Update 1/27/14 12:17pm PT: New code Y8WGAYUM (via SD) should work today for the same $4 off.

Another device, another charger. That's the way the story goes. I personally leave a USB charger hanging from at least one outlet near every resting place in my apartment, but if you happen to need all of your devices in roughly the same place, my system won't exactly meet your needs.

You don't need to have one of those super hefty extended battery phones to burn through juice with wanton disregard for the future. All you need is a big honking external battery, and we found just the thing on sale today. The Anker Astro E4 is a 13,000mAh rechargeable cell that is usually only $44. That's a good deal, but for the next few days, it's down to $36.99.

The Anker Astro E4 weighs under 11oz and can charge most smartphones 5-6 times without needing to juice up itself.
