There’s no denying the convenience — or day-saving potential — of a portable charger, especially when you’re out from sunrise to sunset. Regular readers will recognize Anker as the maker of many a Strategist-approved portable charger: David Pogue has raved about the brand’s chargers, as have Megababe founder Katie Sturino, comedian Jacqueline Novak, Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney, and Strategist writer Hilary Reid. While each of them use slightly different models, they all praised how slim and actually sleek-looking Anker’s portable chargers are — not to mention powerful. This PowerCore Slim 10000 PD, for instance, allows for up to two charges on an iPhone or a Google Pixel, and has (almost) enough juice to power up an 11-inch iPad Pro. It’s also USB-C compatible, so it’ll work with even the latest gadgets. And today, it’s just $30.
