The portable Anker 521 PowerHouse is arguably the perfect power station for beginners or travelers who are in the market for a dependable but still portable energy storage that can be recharged via solar and does not break the bank thanks to a 20% discount on Amazon.

Mid-sized power stations are probably the sweet spot for many prospective buyers who would like to take their first steps into the world of these practical energy storages that can be extremely useful during power outages or on camping trips. Anker is undoubtedly one of the most notable brands in this particular segment, and one of its best bang-for-the-buck solar generator, the Anker 521, has now returned to its lowest sale price yet.

On Amazon, the Chinese company currently sells the Anker 521 PowerHouse with 256 Wh of capacity and two 200-watt AC outlets and a durable LiFePO4 battery pack for just US$199 including free shipping. This versatile power station originally carried a price tag of US$259, and according to the price tracker from Camelcamelcamel, this deal matches its steepest discount so far. Please note that the compatible solar panel for this power station, the Anker 625, has to be bought separately for currently US$239 on Amazon.

For further first-hand impressions of this power station, please refer to our thorough hands-on review of the Anker 521 PowerHouse. We for example liked the compact size and relatively low weight of this energy storage, which makes it incredibly versatile and practical on longer trips. We also tested the solar charging feature via the aforementioned Anker 625 panel, which worked flawlessly in our case. In conclusion, this power station deal for the Anker 521 is a decent choice for buyers who missed out on a previous deal for the slightly more powerful but also bulkier Anker PowerHouse II 400.
