There’s definitely something to be said about the value of digitally detoxing while on vacation — but many times, turning off all your devices and living a Walden existence just isn’t feasible. Sometimes, it’s a matter of wanting to capture memories and gorgeous scenes by taking photographs on your smartphone; other times, it’s using your map app to guide you to a hard-to-find cultural site; or maybe you need to use your pocket translator to find out where the nearest bathroom is. No matter the reason, our phones and personal tech devices can be essential for turning our travels from a discombobulated experience to a smooth journey.
Just as crucial as packing all the devices you’ll use is making sure those items are charged up when you need them — which is how Anker portable chargers have become so popular among travelers and non-travelers alike. Thousands of Amazon shoppers rely on Anker power banks to keep their devices juiced up and right now, two different Anker portable chargers are 30 percent off — but only for today.

The Anker PowerCore II Ultra Slim Power Bank is, as the same suggests, a very thin portable charger that’s easy to slip into a carry-on, backpack, or even handbag and has enough power to give you multiple charges. This model also promises a super fast charging speed, able to juice up a Galaxy S7, for example, in 1.5 hours.
With over 1,000 perfect five-star reviews, customers are calling the power bank “ergonomic, powerful, fast, and cool,” with “lots of power” and a “great warranty from Anker.”

This portable charger comes with the added convenience factor of being wireless, which means no more tangled cords occupying an awkward amount of space in your small day pack.

Over 1,100 shoppers have given this wireless phone charger a 4.5-star rating, calling the battery pack “amazing,” the “best wireless charger I’ve ever used,” and “as always, an awesome product.” Customers vouch for the fast-charging capabilities and love that there’s “fast wireless charging finally affordable!”
Both of these Anker products are under $30, but only through the end of today. If you want to join the ranks of customers singing the praises of not just the portable chargers but also Anker as a brand, you’ll have to act fast on these Deal of the Day offers: the Anker PowerCore II Ultra Slim Power Bank and the Anker PowerWave Wireless Charger for 30 percent off each.
