Best Buy is offering 50% off the Anker PowerCore Fusion Charger [bestbuy.com] with built-in 5000 mAh lithium-ion battery. It is on sale for $40. The only other retailer I know that offers this is Apple for $80 [apple.com]. Amazon sells a new 18W version [amazon.com] that's smaller and $40, but it doesn't put out sufficient power for laptops and tablets like MacBook Air or iPad Pro, which both prefer 30W. An older 10,000 mAh version appears discontinued, but was available at B&H [bhphotovideo.com] and Adorama [adorama.com], but it only outputs 15W and does not provide Power Delivery. Another older model [amazon.com] remains available for $30 and offers 5,000 mAh and Micro USB input (in addition to standard wall charging).

Best Buy last offered this model on sale approximately in March 2020 for $40 and last week for $50.

Per the Anker marketing video on Apple's website [apple.com], this uses GaN technology.

From Mac Otakara YouTube video [youtu.be]:
- Input: standard wall outlet only. It cannot be charged with the USB-C nor USB-A ports that are only for output
- USB-C PD Power Delivery output when PLUGGED IN: 30W (15V/2A, 20V/1A), 27W (9V/3A), 15W (5V/3A)
- USB-C PD Power Delivery output with BATTERY: 15W (5V/3A)
- USB-A output (both plugged in and battery): 12W (5V/2.4A)

Reviews:
- The Verge [theverge.com] Anker's new USB-C charger / battery combo is amazing but awkward.
- KDML105 YouTube [youtu.be]
- Dwayne Mims YouTube [youtu.be]

From Best Buy [bestbuy.com]: Ensure rapid powerups using this Anker PowerCore Fusion Power Delivery battery and charger. The 5000 mAh capacity extends your iPhone battery life by up to 23 hours, while the 30W Power Delivery USB-C port and 12W PIQ USB-A port provide rapid charging speeds. This palm-sized Anker PowerCore Fusion Power Delivery battery and charger features a scratch-resistant coating to keep the exterior looking pristine.
- Designed for most USB-C laptops and devices with USB charging capability Including MacBook, iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, or other USB devices.
- 5000 mAh rechargeable battery Battery mode supplies up to 23 hours extra battery life for most smartphones.
- Ultimate two-in-one charger A hybrid high-capacity portable battery and dual-port wall charger in one sleek package.

A full 30W Power Delivery output is available in wall charger mode only.
- Foldable plug Enables maximum portability.
- LED indicator lights Provide at-a-glance battery information.

From Apple [apple.com]: Delivering two-in-one convenience, the Anker PowerCore Fusion Power Delivery efficiently combines a portable battery with a wall charger. In charger mode, the USB-C port can provide maximum 30W of power with PowerDelivery to charge a MacBook, iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, or other USB devices, while the USB-A port can provide 12W of power with Power IQ for easily charging your iOS or other USB devices. In battery mode, the PowerCore's built-in 5000 mAh battery can provide 23 hours extra battery life for your iPhone.

Why does this sound super expensive for what it is?
I have the older $30 model and I love it. Even I didn't grasp how useful it is to be charging your phone and having to go and when you unplug from the wall it's still charging. Unlike a battery back You only need your one cord to charge your device, no additional charger and USB cord needed and because the device plugs into the wall directly it charges at the fastest speed possible.

If you are on the wall with this concept, get it, it changes how you charge and recharge your phone on the go. If you are a heavy phone user the ability to charge your phone, drain the device, then go plug the device into the wall while using your phone untethered to anything and by the time you've drain your phone the device is charged again.
This thing is huge. Saw a pic of it next to an iPhone, and it was larger than the phone itself. Definitely think about where you can fit this before you buy it.

It has PD. That makes it really expensive AFAIK.

edit: NVM, I see other with PD for the same price.

Note for everybody looking at getting this for their iPhone:

The "PD" output on battery power appears to be 5 volt 3 amp, which will NOT fast charge an iPhone. It will charge the same speed as the USB A port would. It will only fast charge when plugged in.

Most other Type C phones, like Samsung Galaxy devices, can fast charge on 5v3amp ports. But not iPhone.

Make sure you buy it from a shop on their approved vendor list. I bought the 10000 mA one and it died. B&H wasn't on the list at the time and they wouldn't honor their warranty

Seems like they are now
