Amazon’s Anker Deal of the Day Features Some Actual Deals

The Amazon website, with images of Anker accessories on discount.

Amazon is running another set of Anker deals today, and if you pay close attention, some of the discounts are worth your time. Top of the list is the Anker Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger, followed by a USB-C to Lightning Cable, and two power strips offered at their lower prices ever. But you can skip the other deals.

Anker makes good stuff, and you can trust the company’s cables and chargers. One of the best things about the company is its willingness to give you a lot of oomph in a small package.

Take the Anker Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger. It features 5 USB ports in a small brick, and together they deliver up to 51.5 watts of power. That should be enough to charge multiple phones and tablets at the same time. Typically you can expect to spend $30 on the charger, but today it’s down to a previously unseen low price of $22.

A charging block for a cheap price.

The Anker Quick Charge 3.0 includes 5 USB ports to charge many of your devices at once. Together the ports deliver 51.5 watts of power, and should be enough to handle your phones and tablets, even simultaneously.

If what you need is a specific cable and you’re an Apple fan, Anker’s USB-C to Lightning Cable is a good choice. It supports Power Delivery, so if you pair it with an Apple 18W, 29W, 30W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter and a new enough iPhone (8 and up), you’ll get blazing fast charging speeds. Usually, the cable goes for $32, but you can grab it today for $20. That’s stupid cheap for an MFi certified cable that supports Power Delivery.

If you need a better cable for your Apple devices that deliver fast speeds, Anker's USB-C to Lighting cable will do the trick---provided you have the right charging block.

If what you need is something more traditional, you may want to look at Anker’s power strips today. You can pick from two options. The first may seem like a typical six-outlet power strip at first glance, but it also has two USB-A ports and one Power Delivery USB-C port. You can grab it for $35 today, which is much lower than it’s usual $50 asking price, and the lowest price we’ve seen.

A Power Strip with Power Delivery

Sure power strips are a dime a dozen, but how many do you have that includes a USB-C port that supports power delivery? Plug this in with your iPhone cable and you'll charge it up in no time.

The second power strip may suit you if you need more outlets—this one has 12. But what you gain in outlets you lose in USB-C charging; this one has three USB-A ports and no USB-C. Still, at $23, it’s $3 cheaper than the lowest we’ve seen and $12 cheaper than its usual price.

More Outlets and USB-A ports

If you need to plug in all the things, then getting a strip with 12 outlets is a good start. An even better option is picking up this Anker strip that also has 3 USB-A ports.

Anker has other cables and chargers up for grabs today, but you can probably skip them, or at least hold off for now. The USB-C to USB-A cable’s “deal of the day” price ($15) has been the usual asking price since December. And the USB C Power Strip is cheaper than usual, but we’ve seen it go for $25 before, and it likely will again. If you need one, today’s a good day to grab it, but if budget is an issue, you can wait, knowing it’ll likely drop this price in the future.

You can see all of the Anker deals at Amazon’s site.
