Deal: Anker’s huge PowerCore+ 26800 packs plenty of juice for $42
Amazon’s Prime Day
might be right around the corner, but Anker did not want to wait until
then to issue an enticing discount to its PowerCore+ 26800 portable
charger.As the name implies, the PowerCore+ 26800 is a huge 26,800 mAh
external battery pack that features three USB ports. Do not be deterred
by the lack of support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge – each USB port
supports Anker’s proprietary PowerIQ and VoltageBoost, so you will get
the maximum output without fear of overheating, overcharging, and
everything in between.
Thanks to its capacity, the PowerCore+ 26800 promises to charge
your phone over six times and your tablet at least two times. The size
is something you will need to contend with, though the external battery
includes a travel pouch if you want to throw it in a bag.
The size also brings up the issue of charging, since it will take
a long time for the PowerCore+ 26800 to get back to 100 percent when
fully drained. Luckily, the external battery features two microUSB ports
that folks have stated charge the PowerCore+ 26800 from empty to full
in just under seven hours. In other words, this is an external battery
you will want to charge overnight.
The best part about the battery is its $41.99 price tag, a
great price for a battery with such capacity. This deal is not
permanent – it is set to expire a few hours past midnight tomorrow
morning. If you play tons of Pokemon Go or are usually found out and
about, and you do not mind the size, the PowerCore+ 26800 is a solid
external battery option from a reputable company.
