Two travel-friendly USB chargers stood out from the pack this week, and they couldn’t be more different.

We recently asked you about your favorite USB charging hubs, but travel chargers are a different beast. Folding plugs, 100-240V support, and compact designs are of paramount importance here, so check out the rules below, and let us know what you keep in your travel bag.
With its 24 hour battery life, surprisingly good bass, and crystal clear sound quality, the Anker SoundCore has long been our readers’ favorite affordable Bluetooth speaker. But its run may be at an end, because Anker just upgraded it with IPX5 water resistance, and you can get the new model for $8 off today.
The Echo Dot is probably the best smart home device ever made, and if you’ve been waiting for a deal to scatter them all around your home, Amazon’s passing them out for just $40, today only. Father’s Day is on the horizon, and these make great gifts for nearly everyone.
Amazon usually sells certified refurbished Echo Dots for $5 less than new models, but for now at least, that discount has increased to $12. Refurbished Dots still carry the same warranty as new ones, so there’s really no downside to going this route if you want to sprinkle these around your home on a budget.
Update 5/13: These deals will go away come Mother’s Day, so take advantage while you still can.
If you got a fancy new TV for the holidays, this highly-rated AmazonBasics mount will hang it on the wall for $20. This particular model swings a full 180 degrees and can hold TVs anywhere from 22" to 55", so it should be sufficient for most of you.
Anker has continued its inexorable march towards producing anything that includes a battery with the gargantuan PowerHouse electric “generator,” and you can save $170 on yours for a limited time, the best price ever by $70.
If you want to cut the cord, but can’t abide earbuds, Sony’s popular on-ear MDRXB650BTs are on sale for $68 right now, an all-time low, and a match for Black Friday. These include NFC pairing, a built-in microphone, and 30 hours of battery life, and you even get your choice of three different colors.
