If I am to recommend you buy one thing from Amazon this Black Friday, it might have to be this Anker PowerCore 20100 Portable Charger, which saves my life (or my cell phone's, rather) weekly.

I was gifted this amazing little gadget by someone who has learned to expect my lack of cell phone battery life but refused to put up with it. Now, I am never stranded uptown after a meeting without direction or the ability to Lyft myself home. Or worse, stranded in some Parisian neighborhood after several hours of tasting (aka taking photos of) cheese.

The Anker PowerCore 20100 Portable Charger has enough power in its little frame (12.8 oz) to charge the iPhone 8 up to eight times over before it needs to be charged again. And with it comes a micro USB cable, travel pouch, and lightning cable, so you're set for wherever you are when you find your battery life low.

To buy:, $30 (originally $40)

For Black Friday this year, Amazon is offering these powerful portable chargers for $30, $10 off the original price. But if you're looking for an even sweeter steal, the similarly powerful and slim Ekrist Portable Charger is 75% off this Black Friday.
