    Labor Day is nearing, which usually spells good deals across every category of tech. But in the meantime, there’s a smattering of savings worth recalling from throughout the week. From Amazon devices on the cheap, to exclusive Anker power bank discounts, and a small, but decent eBay coupon, here are the best deals of the week.

    The best portable charger that you can stow anywhere is the Anker PowerCore Slim 5,000, and for Verge readers, it’s now $23.99 on Amazon with offer code VERGESL5. Seen in the photo above, it’s slim, as the name suggests, yet with a 5,000mAh capacity, this model has enough power to refill your smartphone from the brink of death. 

    Speed and capacity are important considerations when selecting a power bank, and if you need more of both at the expense of a pocket-friendly design, the Anker PowerCore Speed 10,000 is the better option. Regularly $39.99, this model is down to $29.99 with offer code VERGEQC6.

    The Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 PD multiplies the capacity and charging speed, and with USB Power Delivery, it’s able to keep all of your devices — including larger, more powerful ones like a laptop with USB-C or a Nintendo Switch — running and charging at top speed simultaneously. Usually $99, Verge readers can save 25 percent on this model with offer code VERGEPD5.

    eBay is hosting a sale that takes 10 percent off select items that cost over $25 with the promo code justsave10 used at checkout. The maximum discount is $50, but that’s good enough to save on a purchase until the sale ends on Sunday night.

    You can find many of the products eligible for the discount at eBay’s landing page, though there’s certainly more inventory that honors the discount than is listed.

    Last up, Amazon has back to school deals on much of its product offering.
