'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

A reliable MagSafe battery pack is a must in your iPhone accessory collection because it not only gives you the battery boost you need when on the go but also eliminates the pesky wires that come with regular portable chargers. 

If you are in the market for a MagSafe battery pack or know someone whose phone's battery is always running low, you need the Anker 622 MagSafe Charger, and it's 18% off during Amazon's Big Spring Sale.

The charger is lightweight, thin, easy to carry, features a strong magnetic hold, and can give your phone a quick battery boost with a 5,000mAh cell capacity that provides up to 7.5W maximum power. 

As originally pointed out in ZDNET's review, the biggest perk is that Anker's 622 MagSafe Charger offers something Apple's doesn't -- a kickstand.

The kickstand allows you to comfortably prop your phone up for your viewing needs, including FaceTime calls, web browsing, and video streaming, while still getting a charge.

Despite featuring a kickstand that the Apple MagSafe charger lacks, it has a lower price point at $59, compared to the $100 cost of Apple's. Today, however, the Anker's 622 MagSafe Charger is an additional 18% off, putting the charger under $50, half the price of Apple's.

All of these features even granted the charger a place on ZDNET's best MagSafe battery packs list for the most versatile battery pack. The Amazon Big Spring Sale is only taking place for a limited time, so you may as well take advantage of the deal now.
