Goal Zero's Sherpa 100 AC portable power bank drops to an all-time low of $225 ($75 off)

Whenever I'm shopping for accessories, I try to choose quality over quantity, always searching for one product to meet my needs while limiting bulk and clutter. Even still, I've somehow accumulated no less than half a dozen portable batteries, each chosen to top off a new device more quickly or to have access to just a bit more energy on lengthy camping trips. If you're in the same boat and you'd like one travel power bank to rule them all, you should check out Goal Zero's Sherpa 100 AC, which is currently available from Amazon for an all-time low of $224.96 after receiving a $74.99 price reduction.

And for Goal Zero, that time is now.

Apollo Max review: Graphene is finally more than science fiction, but don't buy this portable charger

Apollo Max review: Graphene is finally more than science fiction, but don't buy this portable charger

Graphene has been dangled in front of us for over a decade as a new, magical material capable of solving all our technical problems, while steadfastly staying out of consumer products. It's a materials science fact with the mythos of science fiction, but it's finally percolating down into stuff you can actually buy, like this portable charger/battery. Made by a Chinese company called Elecjet, the Apollo Max promises 37Wh (10,000mAh) of capacity, 100W charging, 60W discharging, and a 19 minute recharge time. Unfortunately, that last claim is just science fiction.

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

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.

RAVPower 20,100mAh USB-C 45W power bank review: It has issues

RAVPower 20,100mAh USB-C 45W power bank review: It has issues

There are a ton of cheap batteries out there to choose from, so when we do reviews for them here at Android Police, we tend to be pretty picky. USB-C is a must-have from our mobile-first perspective, and anything less than 30W of output is a bit of a snooze. Thankfully, 45W seems to be the new high-end standard going into 2019, and RAVPower's new 20,100mAh battery ostensibly delivers that now-essential level of power for a mere $60. That's $140 less than what Mophie is charging for its similarly-spec'd 26,000mah battery, and Android Police readers can even get an extra $9 off via our exclusive coupon.

Nimble portable/wireless chargers review: Eco-friendly designs, but high prices for such low specs

Nimble portable/wireless chargers review: Eco-friendly designs, but high prices for such low specs

Mophie is well known for both the quality of its products and the hefty price tag attached to them, so we were interested when we heard that a handful of its employees had splintered off to start a new, eco-mindful power accessory company called Nimble. With consumer cost-cutting recyclable packaging and a focus on renewable materials, we were curious to see if Nimble could disrupt the battery and charger status quo — a highly competitive market. Unfortunately, Nimble's specs and prices just can't beat the competition.
