Anker is a name that comes up a lot in conversations about reasonably priced, exceptionally well-specced mobile accessories, some of which are occasionally available at substantial discounts as part of limited-time Amazon promotions.
One such comprehensive sale includes half a dozen different products you can pair with your Android handset or iPhone, the cheapest of which are up for grabs for 25 percent less than usual. That particular markdown applies to the ultra-affordable 10,400 mAh Anker PowerCore external battery pack and the slightly costlier PowerWave 7.5 fast wireless charging stand.
Both smartphone charging accessories are available at lower than ever prices for 24 hours only, boasting some pretty great average customer review scores based on hundreds of mostly favorable shopper opinions. The battery capacity of the PowerCore on sale today is roughly equivalent to four times the size of the iPhone XS cell, mind you. At least in theory, that means a single full charge of this massive power bank should be enough to fill up your iPhone XS tank a grand total of four times. Meanwhile, the PowerWave is capable of delivering up to 7.5 watts of wireless juice to Qi-certified iPhones, boosting that number to 10W for compatible Androids.
Next on today’s list of bargain mobile peripherals, we have an Anker USB-C hub available at a 22 percent discount, as well as a USB-C power strip, SoundCore Pro+ Bluetooth speaker, and SoundBuds Sport Bluetooth headphones reduced in price by 20 percent each.
The Bluetooth speaker, while not exactly crazy affordable, looks like a rather compelling purchase with an impressive 25 watts of power, enhanced bass technology, a water-resistant design, and up to 18 hours of battery life. The wireless earbuds, meanwhile, are not “truly wireless”, with a cord designed to keep them together at all times and a decent list of features including IPX5 water protection certification, oversized 12mm audio drivers, and up to 6 hours of playtime between charges.
The USB-C hub comes with a single Type-C port, a USB-A charging port, and two USB-A data connectors, supporting both computers and mobile devices with a total power delivery of 60 watts. Finally, the USB-C power strip allows you to easily transform one AC outlet into a charging station for your “entire electronics arsenal”, sporting two 12W USB-A ports and a 30W USB-C connector.
