When you’re on the go, your devices have to keep up with you. And until technologists give us batteries that last for days, we’ll have to keep ours charged throughout the day.
Ever-popular Anker has just upgraded its 4-in-1 USB-C Hub, and is releasing the new version with a 40% discount. I use my own USB-C hub to power my Macbook Pro or Google Pixel 2 (it fits both). The high-speed energy transfer means you’re getting the same quick charging you get from the factory hubs that show up with your USB-C devices. The three USB-A ports that accompany the hub are perfect for the rest of my devices — which are still powered through micro USB ports — like my headphones and e-reader. Anker also sells higher end USB-C hubs, like the 7-in-1 hub with 4K and microSD card support.
Anker’s new release joins it family of hubs, adapters and chargers, like the extremely highly-rated Astro E1 portable charger — mine’s always in my bag and has saved me countless times from evening battery fatigue. Likewise, I have two dual port wall chargers at home, for quick-access charging. At around $30, you'll want to stash one of these in your travel bags or even next to your bed.
