I want you to close your eyes and visualize your smartphone at 3% of a full charge. There's a tiny red sliver left in the little battery icon, and you're without a charger. The possibility of having to endure a bus ride home without your phone is very real.

Now I want you to close your eyes and visualize this scenario never happening again.

It might seem obvious, but the trick to keeping your smartphone juiced is to simply always have a charge within reach. Lucky for you, Amazon just slashed 60% off a massive portable charger from Anker, as well as 50% from a pack of three Anker Lightning cables.

Durable, reliable, and super-slim—what more could you ask for in a portable charger?

We've written about Anker's stellar portable chargers in the past, and there's a reason we keep coming back to them—simply put, they're the best option when you're on-the-go and your phone needs a pick-me-up. The enormously discounted Anker PowerCore 10400 has enough juice to charge your phone at least twice and is small enough to slip in your purse, backpack, or pocket—all for just $20 (60% off its usual price).
