You forgot to charge your phone last night, and now you’re out for the entire day with just 30% battery. We’ve all been there: rationing phone usage in order to keep our devices online just in case of an emergency. It’s never a good feeling.
I’ve set myself up with a phone charger in my car, a wireless charger in my room and my office, and portable chargers depending on how much juice I need to get through my day. I always recommend a portable charger for those times when you need a backup and don’t want to worry about finding an outlet to charge your phone.
Right now, you can get a great portable magnetic charger made by Anker for just $42. It’s designed to work with MagSafe-compatible iPhone models, like the iPhone 12 or newer, and normally sells for $60.
This deal only applies to the misty blue and black versions of the portable charger. If you want it in black, you can still save money by applying a 30% coupon on the page. The interstellar gray model is now $45, but all the other models are full retail price.
You can prop this charger up on any surface with a versatile built-in foldable kickstand that keeps your phone upright for a comfortable viewing angle. With super-strong magnet snaps, the phone will snap magnetically into place to ensure alignment and efficient charge.
It’s both slim and compact: It’s only 0.5 inch thin, so you can attach it to the back of your phone and still take calls, selfies and more. This purchase comes with a 24-month warranty.
