If you’ve been on the search for a portable charger, now is the best time to snag one from Amazon. The retail giant just marked down the price of one of its most popular devices, the Anker PowerCore II 20000 Portable Charger.

For today only, the portable charger is 34 percent off its usual listed price as part of Amazon’s Deal of the Day promotion. While it typically goes for $60, you can snag one for just $40 today — but you’ll have to act fast to get in on the savings because this limited time deal ends Thursday, Oct. 10 at 12:00 a.m. PT.

The impressive battery on the portable gadget can quickly charge your devices on the go. It features 20,000 mAh — or milliamp hours — a unit for measuring the energy capacity of a battery. To put things in perspective, with this energy level, you can power an iPhone 8 more than 6.5 times or an iPad mini 2.5 times. Plus, the portable battery includes two USB ports so you can power up multiple devices at the same time — which is ideal for those moments when you’re stuck at the airport with a phone and tablet on the verge of dying and there’s no outlet in sight.

Compatible with iPhone, Samsung, and more devices, it uses Anker’s signature PowerIQ 2.0 technology to instantly recognize your devices and provide the fastest possible charge. Plus, it only requires five hours to fully recharge the battery, which can then last for up to a week.

At just 24 inches wide and 67 inches long, the compact yet powerful charger will neatly fit into your tote bag, backpack, or carry-on, making it a must-have travel accessory. It even comes with a convenient travel pouch for easy, organized packing.

It’s no wonder why the handy device has racked up nearly 900 perfect five star reviews on Amazon. Reviewers say the battery holds up on long-haul trips and is great for frequent flyers.

“Don’t hesitate and don't play around, this battery is light enough and has tons of capacity. I have the new iPhone X and while a great phone the battery life is something to be desired compared to my iPhone 7 Plus. Now I never have to worry since I carry a bag to work anyway and any time I travel.” one Amazon shopper wrote.

Another said, “I travel a lot for my job, so having a solid power bank a big plus. I'm often dealing with 20-30 hour travel times to get from the midwest US to Asia. This power bank keeps all of my devices charged for the entirety of the trip.”

You only have a few more hours to take advantage of Amazon’s Deal of the Day on this powerful portable charger. Head to Amazon to snag yours for 34 percent off now before the sale ends.
