Our friends at Thrifter are back again, this time with a slim portable battery that puts 10000mAh of power into your pocket for less!

We continue to demand more and more out of our phones these days, and that means battery life sometimes takes a hit. No one wants to sit attached to a wall all day to keep their phone charged, and luckily you don't have to. Aukey has recently released a new 10000mAh dual-USB portable power bank that is super slim, and right now you can pick one up for just $14.99 with coupon code AUKPBN51, a savings of $5. This power bank is 14mm thick, which is less than twice the thickness of a Google Pixel.

You can charge two devices at the same time using the cables of your choice, and at 10000mAh of capacity, you'll be able to charge most phones and tablets anywhere from 2 to 4 times per charge of the power bank. The side of it has four LEDs to show you how much power is left at a glance.

Anker discounts its most popular Bluetooth headphones & speakers in time for warmer weather

Our friends at Thrifter are back again, this time with some big savings on various Anker Bluetooth accessories!

Over the past few weeks, winter finally gave way to spring and it's now nice enough to enjoy workouts without being cooped up in the gym. This is the running season you should ditch those old earbuds and go wireless. I'm hesitant to spend crazy amounts on Bluetooth headphones to workout with since no matter what manufacturers say, profuse amounts of sweat and electronics don't mix.

That's where Anker's SoundsBuds come in handy. They are lightweight, feature Bluetooth 4.1 (perfect for Apple Watch!) and aren't outrageously priced. In fact, they are even less expensive today since coupon code ANKER233 drops the black, green and blue models down to $22.99 (Reg. $30). Thousands of Amazon reviewers rate them 3.8 out of 5 stars so you know they'll hold up well. For those of you who have problems with earbuds popping out during workouts, you could give Anker's SoundBuds NB10 a try while they are on sale for $29.99 (Reg. $40) using coupon code ANKER260.

If you're looking for some wireless tunes for an upcoming picnic or BBQ, Anker's SoundCore Bluetooth 4.0 speaker boasts 24-hours of play time and is on sale for $30.59 (Reg. 36+) when you enter coupon code ANKMAY77 during checkout. There's also the SoundCore nano option for $18.66 (Reg. $25) with coupon code KINANK66, which is the perfect size for traveling.

Remember, you need coupon code AUKECAR7 to get the discount here. Odds are it won't last long at this price, so be sure to act quickly if you want one!
