Whether you’re gearing up for the school season or just looking for some extra charging kits to make your vacation run a little smoother, Anker’s latest discounts at Amazon might have what you’re looking for. There are a handful of products for sale, including, a set of three iPhone cables (USB-A-to-Lightning) for $19.49 instead of $30, and a smart power strip with two sockets and three USB ports (two USB-A ports and one USB-C 18W PD port) for $26 instead of $36. There’s also a 15W Qi wireless charging pad available for $20 instead of $30, but it does not include a power adapter.
The most useful device discounted today is the Powercore Fusion wall charger-meets battery pack from Anker. The black-colored GaN charger with a 10,000 mAh battery costs $34.50 today instead of $46. This allows you to charge devices up to 20W via USB-C or up to 15W when you use that port and the USB-A at the same time, whether you’re plugged in or using the Fusion as a battery pack. It probably won’t be powerful enough to charge your laptop while you’re using it (unless you’re using something like a Chromebook), but it seems great for smaller devices and accessories.
