Why you should buy the Anker PowerCore III Elite portable charger

As USB-C port-connected laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other devices become the norm, the advantages of easy-to-plug-in cables don’t overcome the basic need for a power source to plug into. Whether you want to power up your MacBook Air, make a presentation with your Dell XPS, check in with your iPad Pro, or recharge your iPhone, you still have to find an available electrical outlet or another power source to connect to your device. If you travel or even move around the office frequently the best answer may be to take your power with you. Portable USB-C-connected chargers such as Anker’s PowerCore III Elite Series are an extremely convenient solution for a backup power source if your laptop, tablet, or smartphone runs low during a meeting or remote working session away from a power plug. Anker portable chargers feature in Digital Trends’ best power banks for small business roundups for their compact design, energy storage capacity, and available ports.

The Prime Day deal for the Anker PowerCore III Elite 19200 mAh capacity charger provides up to 60 watts of charging power. You can plug in and charge three devices simultaneously, although the total output is limited to 60 watts. According to Anker, the PowerCore III Elite 19200 model can charge an iPhone 11 Pro four times, a 2020 iPad Pro 11-inch tablet 1.5 times, and a 2020 MacBook Air once. If you have access to a conventional power outlet you can also charge the Anker Power Bank at the same time one or more devices recharge via USB-C connections to the Anker.

If you frequently search airports, hotels, or coffee shops for outlets to charge your USB-C-connected devices, take advantage of this Prime Day 2 deal and pick up the Anker PowerCore Elite III 19200 portable charger for $88, a $22 discount from the typical $110 price. But don’t tarry, because this sale ends at midnight Pacific Time tonight!

Gear up for the Holidays: Anker hubs and docking stations for iPads and MacBooks
Anker USB Hub 541 for iPads

This content was produced in partnership with Anker.
It's tough to imagine a time when Black Friday wasn't a thing, but every year there's gear to shop and this year is no different, especially if you're looking for some of the best hubs and docking stations for Apple devices. More specifically, Anker is hosting some incredible deals on its hub and docking solutions for the Apple M Chipset iPad and Mac lineup. USB hubs, if you don't know, extend your device's connectivity to plug in both external gear and peripherals. A commonly used function, for example, is to extend the display to multiple external monitors for improved productivity. Of course, they do a lot more than that too, like allowing you to plug in a USB drive, wired mouse, or microSD card via compatible ports. Discover Anker's "designed for Apple" range and a host of fantastic deals for the holiday season -- they make great gifts too!

Apple’s MagSafe Leather Wallet for iPhone is 24% off for Black Friday
iPhone 12 magsafe leather wallet.

Black Friday deals are finally here, and it is time to kick the holiday shopping season off right. As we all know, the iPhone has a lot of great accessories, so any lover of the phone becomes pretty easy to shop for. Today, we're looking at the Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe, a beautiful accessory that saves pocket space and frankly just looks beautiful on an iPhone. The wallet, which usually costs $59, is $14 off and now only costs $45. That's nearly 25% off in savings and a perfect price point for a casual gift to family, friends, or even yourself!

Why you should buy the Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe
The Apple Leather Wallet magnetically attaches to the back of your iPhone (versions 12+) as a MagSafe accessory and holds two to three cards within. These cards are not only less likely to fall out whenever you pull out your phone to swipe and take photos but are also shielded to protect you from scammers. Stylishly made from European leather, the Apple Leather Wallet comes in nine colors, though only the Midnight Black, Golden Brown, and Umber varieties are currently on this massive sale. Coincidentally, these are also the colors that look the most like the traditional leather you probably picture in your head, so it's a big win for leather lovers!
