Goal Zero power banks on sale, including $60 off the Sherpa 100 AC and $360 off the monstrous Yeti 1400

There are a lot of external batteries/power banks/portable chargers out there, and often the experience can be summarized purely in specs. While there's always odd or unusual behavior to watch out for, you usually know what you're getting when rated outputs, features, and capacities are all listed. The Goal Zero Sherpa 100 AC Portable power Bank checks a whole lot of boxes if you're after a really high-end, airline-safe battery, and right now it's $60 off at multiple retailers, including Amazon, down to just $240 from its usual $300 price tag. The truly monstrous Goal Zero Yeti 1400 is also discounted by $360 to "just" $1,440.

Always-on display could come to the 7 Pro, but OnePlus wants to work on other features and fixes first

These days, OnePlus is known for engaging with its customers more than most smartphone manufacturers do, feeling out their interests when it comes to certain features. Just earlier today, the company published a series of responses related to customer feedback for the 7 Pro, covering a range of topics from the "ghost touch" issue to ongoing camera improvements, and even the potential its latest phone might pick up always-on display functionality — one of the most common requests.

Anker Powerhouse 200 review: A $350 USB-C battery pack the size of a lunchbox

There are an incredible number of choices when it comes to smaller capacity batteries, but the selection of big, camping-sized units thins out substantially especially if you want comparatively modern amenities like Type-C charging and output. Anker's new Powerhouse 200 fills a slightly smaller niche than its older Powerhouse 120,000, together with the addition of a more modern connector, but its $350 asking price is too much given the compatibility issues and feature set.

Zendure's SuperTank may be ugly, but it's the best and most powerful Type-C battery you can buy

Batteries, by design, shouldn't be an exciting subject. When we're talking about the brick you connect to a thousand-dollar smartphone which holds tremendous quantities of literally explosive chemical power, "exciting" isn't usually a word you want to hear. So I won't call Zendure's new SuperTank battery exciting, even though it can spit a massive 100W of power over USB Type-C, with almost perfect device compatibility, exceptional performance, and all at a very reasonable price.

This is the best battery we've ever reviewed at Android Police — and if I'm being honest, that's a little bit exciting.

Crowdfunded SuperTank battery promises 100W output over USB Type-C

I know, typically we avoid covering Kickstarter products, but once in a while a product catches our eye as kinda cool, or kinda luggage lookin'. This time it's the SuperTank, a slightly ridiculous name for a slightly ridiculous battery/portable charger/power bank/whatever. The monstrosity you see above spits a ridiculous 138W in total, with up to 100W of that over a single USB Type-C port. All that power comes pretty cheaply, too, with an $89 "Early Bird" price.
