Amazon has the newly announced, Anker PowerPort Cube on sale today for just $19.54. That is about $10 off of its regular price – even though Amazon says it's $30 off, it's actually not. It's never been $49.99, but it is usually around $29. This is a great deal on this surge protector, and definitely a good time to pick it up.
This PowerPort Cube from Anker is a rather interesting product. It sports three USB ports with PowerIQ 2.0, and then three AC outlets. It's a cube, so you have an outlet on each side, and the top houses the three USB ports. This is actually a really good surge protector to pick up and use if you have a lot of gadgets that have large power bricks, that also cover other outlets. It's also great to travel with, since we all know hotels have very few available outlets near the bed or a desk in the room. This does have a five-foot long cable included, so you can use it pretty far from the outlet at home or at work, which is definitely nice. The three USB outlets here all use PowerIQ 2.0, which is Anker's proprietary fast charging standard. It will charge your smartphone at up to 2.4A. Which is pretty good, and on par with Samsung's Adaptive Fast Charge and Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
