Note – I am bringing these around today for two reasons. The first is about half the country just go a reminder as to how important back up power is. The second is both are on sale today, the huge 26,800mAh is 9% off but the smaller 20,000mAh unit which is still a beast is on sale for 21% off. Both are listed as “limited time deals”.
Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Items of the day are the Anker Astro E7 26800mAh Portable Charger and the slightly smaller Anker PowerCore 20000mAh Charger. I have tried a lot of back up power packs and this one is my current favorite. This product has a great value to price ratio, coming in at 65.99 with free shipping on prime. It currently has over 2,800 reviews on Amazon with 4.5 stars overall.
Frankly, Anker is just a stellar company, they build high quality products and back them with a great 18 month warranty, though I have never had the need to use said warranty. Next is the power capacity of this particular power pack, 26800mAhs is enough power to charge a
- iPhone11 10 times
- iPad Air 2.5 times
- iPad Mini 3 times
- Samsung S6 6.8 times
The smaller unit is also no slouch, it can provide enough power to…
- Provovide more than 5 charges for iPhone XS
- Almost 5 full charges for Samsung Galaxy S10,
- More than 4 charges for iPhone 11
- Over 2 and a half charges for iPad mini 5.
To put that in perspective I get an easy 24 hours of light use with my iPhone and it still has quite a bit of battery on it. And if you are in a grid down you minimize use to critical needs, that means this should keep your coms up with your iPhone for a good two weeks.
To me your phone is your lifeline. It brings you news, it lets you call for help, communicate with loved ones and more. While I have a generator and several battery banks in my home I am not always in my home. So I always keep one of these in my pack fully charged as a final back up on power needs. I recommend you consider the Anker Astro E7 26800mAh Portable Charger or the Anker PowerCore 20000mAh Charger for your own needs.

P.S. – I know a lot of you have purchased Anker Back Up Packs over the years based on my recommendation and tons of you paired them with this Anker Vehicle Charger. For charging phones, back up packs, laptops, you name it in your car, this thing can’t be beat and is still my top recommendation. It gives 24 watts of power compared to the 10-15 watts that most 12VDC car charges provide. But now Anker has a new charger for AC with a whopping 30 watts of power. If you charge your back up packs indoors or just want a really fast wall charger consider adding this to your kit of gear. How fast is it? Well it will fill up the PowerCore Anker Astro E7 26800mAh Portable Charger in 4.5 hours from a totally flat dead state. Folks that is enough power to fully charge an iPhone 6 times in 4.5 hours. I trust Anker because they have never let me down so I just ordered one of these myself.
