A portable charger is a godsend for anyone whose phone battery always seems to be teetering on the edge of depletion. For iPhone users, Anker’s 521 Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger can provide much-needed on-the-go power. The charger works with the iPhone 12 series and above, and uses Apple’s MagSafe technology to snap to the back of your device (just be sure that your phone case is also MagSafe-compatible). It can provide a full extra battery charge, or up to 17 additional hours of video-playback time — and you can recharge the charger itself with the same USB-C cable you use to charge your MacBook or iPad. The Anker 521 comes in five different colors, and two of them — green and purple — are currently on sale for $38. That’s a delicious 31 percent discount for an extra serving of juice.
