A few weeks after our last offer, MacRumors has again partnered with Anker to offer our readers up to 40 percent off eight of Anker's iPhone and iPad charging products. The savings target two lightning cables, a Qi-compatible wireless charger, a wall charger, a car charger, and three portable battery packs, two of which have high-capacity batteries and dual USB-C/USB-A support for the latest MacBooks.

As usual, Anker's discounts are offered on Amazon, so once you find an accessory that you're interested in you can add it to your cart, proceed to checkout, enter the relevant promo code into the Gift cards & promotional codes field, and then click "Apply." Discount prices in this article don't include taxes or shipping costs, but Amazon Prime subscribers can get the typical free two-day shipping on their orders.

Check out every Anker item on sale in the list below, and be sure to place orders this week as this sale is a bit shorter and will last from today, July 2, through Sunday, July 8. (Note that only one code can be used per order, so if you'd like to order more than one type of item, you'll need to place separate orders.)

I love Anker gear. The one time I strayed and bought a competitors USB-C cable that looked the same, it failed after just one week.

Shows you can get both quality and customer service without an Apple-esque price tag.

+1 for Anker gear. Have so many of their cables, chargers, wireless chargers, screen protectors etc. Even a couple of bluetooth speaker. Shame your discounts don't apply to the UK :(
I know that us over the pond cannot join in your competitions, but seeing as Anker sell a pile of stuff in Europe, would be nice if you took the time to arrange a similar deal for us Europeans.
Just saying ;)
(Have a look at the location of the first four people to reply - there are your "clicks" right there)

Could someone answer me if the car charger advertised would have enough juice to power a 12.9 iPad Pro and use it as a GPS simultaneously? I’ve got a nice Anker one now and it’s not enough power. Amazon answers isn’t helping for that SKU.

Same, the one time I strayed from Anker and purchased a "noname brand" pack of 5 6ft cables for the same cost of 1 Anker cable...…. the cables refused to charge at >1amp, 2 died within a week, 3rd one melted in my hand (left a burn mark that lasted for weeks) and smelled like burnt plastic... at that point I refused to use them any further. lol. You get what you pay for.

I have TONS of Anker products and use them every day for my MacBook, charging cables, batteries, and power supplies. I cannot recommend them enough. They stand behind their products too - the few times I've had problems, I didn't even have to ask - I was credited the payment I paid and shipped a new device free of charge. They even refunded me the difference on a product when they dropped the price on an item I bought the next day (AND sent me a free additional item).

Just another Anker fan here mentioning how awesome they are. And when you do have a problem (I am an IT manager, so the law of averages says I will have a problem with any brand we buy), they take care of you right away.

I love Anker stuff. I think I'm going to wait until they offer a smaller USB-C battery pack. I already own a couple of their batteries. I wish they would make a short USB-C PowerLine+ cable like they do for Lightning and USB Micro. I have a little Samsung SSD and wish the cable was shorter as I'm always trying to find ways to make my pack smaller and lighter. For instance I bought their PowerCore Fusion because it combines a dual-port USB charger and battery pack into one so I can have more space in my bag and some emergency backup power. It's one of my favorite things I've purchased from them. I also have their 10W Wireless Charger and it works really well too and only lights up for 10 seconds to indicate it's charging your device. I don't really recommend the one mentioned in this article because while it has a 12W charger, I think the pad itself is only like 5W which means you can't charge an iPhone at full wireless charging speed. I don't remember all the specifics but I did a bunch of research on it when I got my iPhone X.

Agree with Anker quality. Awaiting delivery of a combo wall charger.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but it’s a pity that the most portable of their battery packs here doesn’t have a USB-C port.
