Get a week’s worth of phone power with the SuperTank high-speed charger

SuperTank portable charger

Portable chargers are a dime a dozen nowadays, and while they’re great to have when you’re on the move, they’re all fairly similar in terms of design. That’s because these handy devices utilize pretty simple technology: A portable charger, or “power bank,” is essentially little more than an external battery that you use to power up your phone or other mobile device when it’s running low.

Zendure, maker of the new SuperTank portable charger, hopes to shake things up a bit. Its innovative new power bank is large and fast enough to charge up even large devices like laptops (and do it quickly). There is obviously a demand for it: The SuperTank’s massively successful Indiegogo crowdfunding drive has raised more than half a million dollars so far, a whopping 1,845 percent of its original funding goal.

The SuperTank portable charger is a high-capacity power bank, capable of storage an impressive 27,000mAh of power – enough to charge up your smartphone multiple times over or juice up larger items like laptops – but what really sets this unit apart from others is its speed. The SuperTank’s four USB ports put out between 15 and 100 watts, meaning this charger can power up a MacBook Pro to 100 percent within an hour and a half via USB-C Power Delivery.

The SuperTank features four total connections for your devices: Two USB-A and two USB-C ports. These outputs let you power up multiple devices (up to two laptops and two mobile devices) simultaneously. The generous capacity means you’ve got more than enough energy with which to do it, too, with 27,000mAh providing about a whole week’s worth of usage before the SuperTank itself needs a recharge.

Although the initial Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign ended on March 6, you can still take advantage of early adopter pricing on the SuperTank (and its smaller sibling, the SuperPort 4). These discounts let you take 33 percent off the price of a SuperTank high-speed charger, bringing the price for one unit down to just $99 and saving you $50 off of its launch price of $149. You can save a little more by bundling it with the SuperPort 4, a smaller charger designed as a pocket-friendly companion to the SuperTank. As always, though, it pays to exercise caution when participating in a crowdfunded venture.

Don’t wait for the Pixel Watch, get this $140 smartwatch instead
Mobvoi TicWatch E3 seen from the top down.

Prime Day 2022 has provided a great opportunity for anyone waiting to get a smartwatch with Google’s long-awaited WearOS 3 software in the near future without having to spend a fortune. The Mobvoi TicWatch E3 usually costs $200 but is available for $140 at the moment, and that's a seriously tempting price.

Google announced WearOS 3 in 2021, and the software brings a new design, new features, smoother animations, better battery life, and faster overall performance. But we’re still waiting for it to arrive on a smartwatch that’s not the $400 Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, and while we’re pleased the Montblanc Summit 3 smartwatch has been announced with it as standard, it costs $1,300. Sure, you could wait for the Google Pixel Watch, but there’s no official release date for it yet, and it’s expected to cost about the same as the Galaxy Watch and Apple Watch.

"Alexa, how's my vision?"

Amazon recently announced that for Prime Day, it's discounting the Echo Frames, the company's smart glasses wearable, to just $100. In addition, you'll be able to get a prescription-ready version of these glasses or a shades variant for only $20 more. Seeing that the original price of these frames starts at $250, it seems like a great deal. The real question is if they are worth even $100 of your hard-earned cash.

Which Amazon Echo should you buy on Prime Day 2022? 
Echo Show 15 with base.

There was a time when it was easy to choose which Amazon Echo device to buy because there wasn’t much of a selection. These days, Amazon has an entire stable of devices ready to respond and carry out your commands. That makes things a bit trickier for those who are looking to pick up their first (or add another) Echo device among Prime Day Amazon Echo deals. You can also review some of the best deals year round.

We’ve tested and tried each Echo device to find the best of the lot. This year, we think it’s the Echo Show 10. With its high-quality 360-degree speaker, a large screen, and the ability to pan around the room to double as a security camera or video conferencing dynamo, it’s a great all-around choice. Even so, depending on how you want to use an Echo Show and how much space you have, there’s certainly a case to be made for other Echo devices.
