It’s hard to imagine how we’d live our lives without all of the electronic devices we’ve come to depend upon. I’m talking about everything from mobile phones and phone chargers to portable computers, watches, tablets, headphones, earbuds, fitness and GPS trackers, eReaders.
It’s not only an adult thing. These days, kids have their own bevy of electronics and learning devices that need to be powered.
The challenge is more than staying powered while on the run. The trick is to keep electronic devices fully charged and ready to go. The more people in the household, the greater the challenge and potential for a big fat mess.
The best way to make sure you’re always powered up and ready to go is to make charging convenient—not necessarily expensive but well-thought-out.
Today, I thought I’d give you a quick tour of the phone charger and other charging gadgets I depend on and wouldn’t want to be without.
Portable power bank
Tired of running out of power and frantically searching for a place to charge? This Anker PowerCore 10000 external battery bank is one of the smallest and lightest 10000mAh portable chargers around. With this power bank, I can actually charge my iPhone from 0% to 100% more than three times before I need to recharge the battery. Compatible with iPhone, Samsung, and more.
Just plug your phone into it, and you’ll be charged up in no time flat. No more searching for a public electrical outlet in the conference room, restaurant, or airport anymore when you carry your own power.

Solar portable power bank
This Anker PowerCore Solar 20,000 18w has dual ports and flashlight. Enjoy massive capacity to power your phone for days on end with its 20,000 mAh cell capacity. And it’s super fast—faster than almost any other portable solar charger in its class.

Most mobile phones, tablets, and various other devices are USB-compatible. Compatible with iPhone Xs/Max/XR/X/8/7/Plus, iPad Pro/Air 2/Mini/iPod, Galaxy S9/S8/S7/Edge/Plus, Note, LG, HTC, and More!
Love this little thing because I can take it with me on the road. No more fighting over a precious outlet.
Household battery recharging kit
Panasonic’s Eneloop battery charger kit is fabulous. Just take a look. This starter kit comes with 16 rechargeable batteries that can be recharged up to 2,100 times!
I’ve never been a fan of rechargeable batteries until now. These are the batteries I need for remote control devices and all the other things around the house that require batteries. It’s convenient and works like a champ. This set makes a great gift, too.
I’ve had to learn the hard way about electronic devices and power surges. I only had to fry a computer one time to gain tremendous respect for that possibility. I insisted on a surge protector for charging devices at home and the office.
This Anker Power Strip Surge Protector has a 3-line 4000 Joule surge suppression rating which is more than adequate to protect your devices. Includes 12 outlets and 3 USB ports with flat plug and 6 ft cord. Now you have a reliable place to power up your phone charger and everything else!
Anker is so confident in this power strip, the company includes a worry-free 18-month warranty plus $50,000 insurance on connected equipment!
