Deal: This Is Your Ideal Wall Charger When Traveling

Anker's compact, high-powered charging strip is now below $20


Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Anker’s new PowerPort Strip 2 Mini is possibly the best wall charger for your travels — it offers two high-speed USB ports and two AC ports (uniquely on the sides), so pretty much all your devices are covered. More importantly, the plug is tiny, flat and angled at 45 degrees to keep other outlets open. Along with the longer-than-usual five foot cord, this means you can pretty much plug the PowerPort in anywhere — a life-saver in hotels, where outlets are often awkwardly positioned. For the next week, it’s at a new low of $19 (starting at some point today UPDATE: The deal started at 1pm EST on the 10th and goes through Sept. 17th).



For one more day it’s up to 55% off an array of classic Converse sneakers and Chuck Taylors at Nordstrom Rack. Note: Sizes vary widely.

TaoTronics Earbuds

They’re stealthier, sleeker AirPods, but at one-fifth the price. With Bluetooth 5.0 and 40 hours of playtime (with case), the ‘buds are a new low price of $32.39.

More sales of note:

  • Gap: It’s 45% off pretty much everything through Wednesday with the code CYBER.
  • Macy’s: It’s currently 70-85% off men’s clearance suiting.
