As we enter back into the world, slowly but surely, you will most likely be spending more time outside your house — and as you’re taking photos in the park and scrolling Twitter and posting to Instagram and calling an Uber, your phone battery will inevitably start to get drained. Since you’re not tethered to a power outlet anymore, you could do with a portable charger, and this slim one comes from Anker, 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, and Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney. This PowerCore Slim 10000 allows for up to two charges on an iPhone or a Google Pixel, which should take you through the weekend, and it’s currently on sale for the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.
