The Anker 757 Portable Power Station is displayed against a blue background.

It feels nearly impossible to survive without power today. Whether you want to charge your phone or tablet during a power outage or need a power station that can run an electric grill or coffee maker during a trip, having power whenever you want and wherever you go is a big priority for a lot of people. And right now Amazon has discounted select Anker power stations to keep you connected no matter what comes your way.

One of our favorite portable power stations of the year is Anker's 757 PowerHouse. Regularly $1,400, this 1,500-watt, 13-port portable power station is a great backup that is on sale for just $980 right now. It has a newer LiFePO4 battery that can last up to six times longer that the standard lithium-ion ones in some other models. That means this battery can run 3,000 cycles or more. It even comes with a five-year warranty. This power station recharges up to 80% in just one hour, or in 3.6 hours when using solar panels (sold separately). Whether you need to power a coffee maker other devices on a camping trip or just need backup for phones, CPAP machines and more power during a storm, the 757 is a good option.

If you're looking for something a little less pricey, Anker also has a $130 discount on the 535 portable power station, meaning you'll pay just $420 right now. This 500-watt powerstation can recharge to 80% in under 2.5 hours (4 with optional solar panels) and holds enough power to charge the average smartphone 40 times before it needs a recharge. It sports a LiFePO4 battery, just like the 757 and comes with a five-year warranty as well. It has nine ports and can power up to four AC devices simultaneously.

And while it's not a powerstation per se, the Anker 577 Thunderbolt Docking Station is discounted by $130 right now as well, and can help you connect everything imaginable with its 13-in-1 design. It's equipped to deliver fast-charging to multiple devices, supporting up to 85 watts of charging through the Thunderbolt upstream port. The USB-C power delivery port and the Thunderbolt downstream port support 18- and 15-watt fast charging, respectively. The USB-A 3.0 port on the front supports 7.5 watts for charging smaller devices like smartwatches or headphones. This docking station is compatible with Windows laptops and non-M1 MacBooks equipped with a Thunderbolt 3 or 4 port. Note that this device is not compatible with M1 MacBooks, Linux or Chrome OS laptops.
