With the holidays fast approaching, our smartphones are more important than ever — keeping in constant contact with family, organizing trips and gatherings, and online shopping is only a taste of what we put our smartphones through. All of that means a big strain on your smartphone's battery. That's why portable chargers are so necessary, and what better time to pick one up than on Black Friday.
Make sure to carefully check out all of the deals below before making your Black Friday plans. If you're looking for a portable charger, chances are you'll find a deal you like here. Just make sure you research when, since some of the might be doorbusters on Black Thursday (aka Thanksgiving) and not the whole Black Friday weekend.
Amazon can be a tricky store to count on. You can snag these Black Friday deals right now, but many expire before Black Friday even begins. We'll continually update this section to make sure all offers are still good. That's a great deal.
Amazon is currently offering two portable chargers, both from Anker. You might want to consider going with the more expensive one — it has a larger battery, and while it normally costs $36 more than the other portable charger, it now costs less than $8 more. That's something to consider.
Best Buy is one of the best when it comes to Black Friday deals. Unfortunately, they only offer one discounted portable charger this holiday season, but we'll take what we can get. It's not like you're losing out, either — Best Buy is promoting Mophie Powerstations, a well-known brand.
- Mophie 5,200 mAh Powerstations for $10 each
While Walmart's deal isn't quite as cheap as Best Buy's, it still offers you some savings if you want extra options. On Black Friday, you'll find discounted Blackweb Power Banks in Walmart's stores, so long as inventory doesn't run out (it is Black Friday, after all).
- Blackweb 20K mAh Power Banks for $15 each
Costco's portable charger deal is a little weak, especially compared to the two stores above. That being said, a deal's a deal. If you happen to find yourself at Costco on Black Friday, or you just don't like the look of Best Buy or Walmart's specials, check out the Ubio Powerbanks Costco has to offer.
