I’ve been a big fan of Anker products for a very long time, especially their battery packs. Amazon has some great deals going on right now, and these are some of my favorites that I personally own:
Anker PowerCore ($19.99)
It’s a 3350mAh portable charger (“Lipstick-Sized”) that will fit in your pocket and provide you with about 2 charges. I got this for my wife as well a while back since she is always on the go with work and often times does not have a place to plug in and charge. This has been working well even after 3 years.
Along with that I got this mini iPhone Lightening Cable (2-Pack $14.99) because I hate having a tangled mess with me, especially in my pocket:
Since I’ve been working from home often, I’ve had my laptop closed and connected to external monitors, one of which actually hangs off of this solid non-Anker Diamond Display Adapter ($44.36):
It connects to the laptop via USB, while the main monitor connects directly using an HDMI cable to the laptop, which leads me to my next Anker device:
Anker 7-Port USB 3.0 Data Hub with 36W Power Adapter ($35.99)
You’re going to need to connect all of your peripherals (Keyboard, Mouse, Monitors, Printers, Webcam, Mic), most likely via USB, so you will need some extra ports. The USB Hub works well, also has a charging port so you can connect your phone to it to charge.
Finally, if you’re a cheapskate like me who doesn’t want to shell out for Airpods but still wants the bluetooth wireless earbuds, these are my go to:
Anker Soundcore Life P2 True Wireless Earbuds ($49.99)
These work extremely well, sound great, don’t fall out, and consistently connect with my phone as soon as I take them out of the charging/holding case.
All of these items I’ve had for more than a year, and have put them through good use. They are still going strong which is a testament to the quality products Anker puts out.
