Top Tech Deals

Ankers reader-favorite PowerCore battery packs run the gamut from tiny tubes that fit into your pocket to massive blocks of energy that can power your devices for days at a time. Todays exclusive deal focuses very clearly on the latter.

The PowerCore+ 26800 is one of the few battery packs on the market with USB-C Power Delivery up to 27W. That means it can charge a 12" MacBook at nearly full speed, a Nintendo Switch at full power while youre playing Zelda on a plane, or an iPad Pro significantly faster than the charger it came with (if you have a USB-C to Lightning cable).

Power Delivery works both ways too, so you can actually recharge the entire battery pack in just 4.5 hours with the included 27W USB-C wall charger, compared to over 11 hours with a standard 2A USB charger. When youre trying to juice up before a flight, every minute counts.

The PowerCore+ also includes two high speed standard USB ports that you can use simultaneously, which is good, because this thing has enough power to share. We had a hands on with the pack when it launched back in April, and you can see our impressions here.

This battery cost $100 at launch, and has been selling for $110 as of late. Our exclusive $88 deal is the first promo code theyve ever offered on this pack, and an all-time low price, so if its been on your wish list, dont hesitate.

If you still listen to audio through your computers built-in speakers, this deals for you. Its a small, USB-powered sound bar designed just for computers (though I could also see using it with, like, a bedroom TV). Just plug in the USB port for power and the 3.5mm jack for audio, and boom: Instant audio upgrade. You can even plug in the microphone jack to use it for conference calls and the like.

Update: The charging stand pictured above has sold out, but heres a regular Qi pad for $10 with promo code 66JC3HUC.

You might have heard vague rumblings yesterday about some new phones that support Qi wireless charging, so whether youre buying your first charging pad, or youve enjoyed the feature for years, this $15 Qi stand is a great deal. Unlike most Qi pads, this one has three charging coils, so it should line up with any phone, and it also doubles as a stand.

The new iPhones finally support Quick Charge! Well, they support quick charging...if you have a USB-C Power Delivery charger and a USB-C to Lightning cable.

These Aukey USB-C wall chargers will charge your iPhone 8 or X faster, as well as your Nintendo Switch, your MacBook, your iPad Pro, and more. The 27W model is only $18, compared to $49 for the 29W charger Apple ships with the 12" MacBook. The $28 46W charger doesnt have a close analog from Apple, but they charge $69 for a 61W charger designed for 13" MacBook Pros.

The going rate for a 2TB external these days is usually around $80, and rarely dips below $70. So when you can get one for $60, you should jump at the opportunity, especially if you need the extra space for your Xbox One or PS4.

$12 is a great price for any 4-port, 34W USB travel charger, but its especially noteworthy for one that includes detachable EU and UK plug adapters. Now you can keep your phone running when you travel abroad for vacation and/or flee the country.

Amazons entry-level Fire 7 tablet isnt exactly a powerhouse, but its great for kids, or anyone that just wants a cheap portable screen to watch videos on planes or in cars, especially since it includes a microSD card slot for expandable storage. Its a bargain at its usual $50, but Prime members can get one today for just $35 (discount shown at checkout).

Amazon is also taking $25 off the Fire HD 8 for Prime members now, which is probably the better choice for most of you. An extra $20 gets you a bigger, sharper screen, 50% more battery life, stereo speakers, and double the storage.

Update: As pointed out by Brandon in our Kinja Deals Community Facebook group, you can buy up to four by buying one of each color, skirting the one-per-account limit.

Amazon usually sells certified refurbished Echo Dots for $5 less than new models, but for now at least, that discount has increased to $12. Refurbished Dots still carry the same warranty as new ones, so theres really no downside to going this route if you want to sprinkle these around your home on a budget.

There have been a lot of deals lately on Apples W1-equipped Beats headphones, but $110 for a pair of BeatsX is within $10 of an all-time low, and a fantastic deal for iPhone owners that want an AirPods-like pairing experience on a budget.

From Gizmodo:

The Beats X are the third product from Beats (and the fourth from all of Apple) to use the new W1 Bluetooth chipset. This Apple-designed chipset should allow for better battery life. It also makes pairing with an Apple device a total snapas long as your iPhone runs iOS 10.1 or higher. All I had to do to pair was turn the Beats X and bring them near my phone. A Connect button instantly popped up and I was offmusic ready to be heard wirelessly.

While mesh routers have broken through in 2016, the Wirecutter-recommendedTP-Link Archer C7 though is one of the best traditional routers you can get, and itll only cost you $70 today, a match for Black Friday, and the best price weve seen.

I present, for your consideration, these magnetic hooks. They hold 40 pounds if theyre stuck to something upside down, or 15 pounds if theyre on a wall or something. They cost $10 for a 4-pack. I dont really know what else to say about them, but thats definitely a good price!

One of your very favorite water bottles is offering a very rare deep discount. Buy one or more Wide Mouth Hydro Flask water bottles and receive 50% off a tumbler.

Do you still use a tape measure, like some kind of caveman? This laser distance measurer takes instant distance readings of up to 164, and includes several built-in calculation functions, in case your middle school geometry skills are a little rusty.

Its the cheapest Amazon price for a 24-pack of Ultra Fine Point Sharpies weve ever seen. So stock up your home office or craft supply box while the deal lasts.

Im typically an espresso fan (because, efficiency), but I could see having $35 Hamilton Beach 12-cup Coffee Maker on hand for special occasions when guests are staying over. Plus, its Amazons best-selling coffee machine with nearly a 5-star rating.

Normally slapped with a $45 price tag, this coffee maker allows you to schedule brew times and set the flavor intensity (from regular to bold) to customize your cup to exact specifications.

This Wine Aerator and Decanter Pump takes a simple bottle of wine and turns it into a mini wine fountain dispensing perfectly aerated wine straight into your mouth glass. You place the telescopic rod into your wine bottle (or spirit or whatever liquid you wish), push a button and then 6 seconds later, it spouts out the dispenser like magic.

This product normally retails for $39, but you can get yours for just $20 with promo code LLFCRZT4, but I really dont think you can put a price on class like this.

Update: This deal is back again, if you missed the Gold Box over the weekend.

Weve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.

It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today, Amazons selling this well-reviewed FoodSaver FM2435 starter kit for $89, or about $30 less than usual, and an all-time low. There are cheaper FoodSaver models out there, but the 2435 justifies its cost with a retractable vacuum sealing hose, allowing it to vacuum seal specially designed zipper bags, in addition to the usual heat-seal bags.
