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 Item of the day the Anker Astro E7 26800mAh Portable 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 59.99 with free shipping on prime. It currently has over 840 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
- iPhone6s 10 times
- iPad Air 2.5 times
- iPad Mini 3 times
- Samsung S6 6.8 times
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 for your own needs.
Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop online you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.
P.S. – This is an encore item I featured very recently. I am featuring it today because in the wake of Harvey the need for back up cell phone power is pretty obvious. I highly recommend pairing this item up with the Anker 24W Dual USB Car Charger. By keeping these two items in your car and charging your phone with the second port you will always have plenty of power.
This solution is the one I personally rely on after evaluation of many different options.
