Amazon's recent Anker device sale offers a great opportunity to get a charging brick for your new iPhone. A few accessories from Anker are included in the sale, including the Nano 20W charger with lavender grey color. This is a $5 discount and a price drop of $15. The standard white Anker Nano charger comes with a foldable connector for $12.

These bricks can be used as a substitute for Apple's 20W charger ($19), which is heavier and more expensive. They both support fast charging iPhones with the correct USB-C-to Lightning cable. They also work with other USB C devices such as other smartphones, wearables, and even the Nintendo Switch (just remember that they do not support charge-and play in TV mode for the latter).

Anker's portable battery packs have been a favorite of ours, and this sale includes two. The 10,000mAh PowerCore Slim costs $28 and charges an iPhone 12 to 50% in just 30 minutes. You can charge older devices with the included 18W USB C and 10W USB A ports. The deal includes only the battery pack, but Anker also offers a 10,000mAh, 18W PowerCore Slim bundle for $30. This is 25 percent off the normal price. If you don't have to worry about finding the right brick to charge the battery, this bundle is for you. The PowerPort III Nano charger included with the bundle will fully charge the battery pack within 4.5 hours.

These are just a few of the most popular gadgets on sale. There are a few wireless chargers on sale, including one magnetic PowerWave disk that looks like Apple's MagSafe charger. You can also get a 2-pack of three-foot MFi-certified Powerline+ II USB–C to Lightning cables for $20. That is 46 percent off the normal price.
