- Anker makes some of our favorite well-priced, everyday tech accessories, and they’re even cheaper during its holiday sale, which runs through December 31.
- The sale includes staples like extra long charging cables and battery packs, but extends into speakers, portable projectors, and baby monitors.
- Although the sale runs through the end of the month, some items take between three and five days to ship, so factor that into your shopping.
- Anker’s holiday sale also involves a giveaway. Once the sale is over, Anker will pick 100 people at random and completely refund their order. Winners will be notified by January 4.
Holiday shopping for someone who loves tech can be tough. It’s easy to feel like you’re stuck between getting something really expensive or just giving up and getting them socks (which are still a great gift, by the way.)
Anker, one of our favorite tech accessory startups, just kicked off its holiday sale, which runs through December 31 and is full of fun, affordable gifts that everyone from your tech-obsessed cousin to your tech-adverse sibling will use and appreciate every day.
Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, Anker’s accessories include staples like long, durable charging cables that come in Lightning and USB-C versions, battery packs that pack a lot of power into a manageable size, and a multi-port USB charger that lets you charge five gadgets at the same time. Those accessories solve problems your giftee might not even realize they have, and all cost under $30.
This sale even includes gadgets from Anker’s subsidiaries, including SoundCore speakers and headphones, a Eufy baby monitor, and a Nebula portable projector. These gadgets are a pricier than Anker’s regular accessories, but they’re very reasonable compared to their competition.
You can shop Anker’s sale on your own, but we’ve saved you some time by cherry picking the best deals and organizing them by category below. Keep in mind that while this sale is running through the end of the month, some items ship between three and five days after they’re ordered, so you should take that into consideration if you’re planning on giving these items as gifts.
As an added incentive to check out the sale, anyone who places an order will automatically be entered into a contest, and 100 people will have their order fully refunded. Winners will be contacted by January 4, and the refund will be issued within 30 days.
We like Anker’s accessories enough to recommend them at their full price, but these discounts (and the potential to get them for free) make the company’s holiday sale one of the best we’ve seen.
