RAVPower is one of the most popular brands around when it comes to portable batteries and power-related accessories, and wouldn't you know it — you can get one of its battery banks at a great price this Black Friday!
The 20,100mAh Portable Charger is relatively compact, with a footprint not much larger than a phone, and it has a variety of ports for charging all of your things at once. You get two USB-C ports (one for power in and one for power out) and two USB-A ports, along with a power button on the top and a line of battery indicator lights.
A slim battery that can charge your phone four times
RAVPower's portable battery bank carries more than enough juice for most people's needs, able to charge most flagship phones from 0 to 100% at least four times. Of course, you can use the USB-C port to charge just about anything these days, and it has a USB-C input for charging, as well.
$49.99 24% off
Like many other battery manufacturers, RAVPower uses Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 tech for fast top-ups on supported devices, reaching up to 5V/3A for both input and output. RAVPower says that you can charge a device up to 80% from a dead battery in just 35 minutes using Quick Charge 3.0.
If you're already using both Quick Charge 3.0 ports and need to charge an additional device, the second USB-A port outputs up to 2.4A, though with all three output ports in use you'll max out at a collective 6A.
It's never a bad idea to keep a portable battery pack handy, and the RAVPower 20,100mAh Portable Charger is discounted through Black Friday to just $37.99, down from its usual $49.99. Grab it while it's cheap, and thank yourself later when you aren't going through half of your day with a dead phone.

Google confirms Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 are coming, but with few details
Google has confirmed it will have two more Pixels to launch in 2020, and they'll both have 5G. The Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 will come later to complement the standard Pixel 4a, and while we have a decent idea of what they'll be like through leaks, Google isn't spilling details.
Google Pixel 4a review: The best camera under $400 is a perfect 2020 phone
It turns out Google's "less is more" approach really fits well within the constraints of a less-expensive phone, and its strengths in software and camera processing stand out against less-refined competition. The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
Grab a great case for your Google Pixel 4a!
The Pixel 4a is a great phone for an even greater price, but it isn't the most flashy phone on the market. Thankfully, there are flashy, fashionable, and dependable cases out there you can grab to spice things up!
