An iPad is just one of many things a good USB power bank will charge or power, and if you want an iPad with high capacity, fast charging capabilities and even a digital display, the Anker Power Bank is hard to beat.

Currently on sale on Amazon UK for £99.99 (was £139.99) (opens in new tab)not only does it offer 140W fast charging (we were told you should be able to charge up to 50% on one charge) 16 inch Macbook Pro in as little as 40 minutes), but the Power Bank can also be fully charged in 52 minutes. Considering the 24,000mAh battery capacity, that’s pretty impressive.

The device can also charge up to three devices simultaneously, so this can be a lifesaver if you carry lots of USB flavored kits with you.

We know how it is: You’ve been waiting to buy an iPad on Black Friday, but keep waiting in hopes of a better deal after the event.

Well, we’re into Cyber ​​Weekend right now – in fact, we’ll be entering Cyber ​​Monday soon – so if you haven’t made that purchase yet, now might be the time to hit the order button. You definitely don’t want to risk the best offers passing you by.

The good news is that all the deals listed above are still available. We’ll continue to look around and report if any other savings come up.

It’s currently a bit of a bottleneck on the more affordable end of the iPad range, with both 9th and 10th generation models being part of Apple’s product lineup.

So which one should you choose? The new 10th-gen model abandons the rather old bezels of its predecessor in favor of an all-screen design and 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, and gets a boost in speed thanks to the A14 Bionic chip.

The new chip has a 10.2-inch display and promises a 20 percent increase in CPU power and a 10 percent graphics increase compared to the previous 9th generation model, which includes the A13 Bionic chip.

In terms of connectivity, the iPad 10 gets a USB-C instead of a Lightning port and supports Wi-FI 6 for faster connectivity. The cellular models are 5G and the new iPad is compatible with a new Magic Keyboard Folio.

This all sounds great, but there is a trick. If you’re expecting the new iPad to be on par with its $329/369 predecessor, you’ll be disappointed. The entry-level 64GB WiFI model retails for $449 / £499, which we’re pretty sure needn’t mention that much more.

However, Black Friday dropped that price a bit: in the UK you can go to: It’s a lot to get the 10th-gen iPad for £469 (opens in new tab)and meYou can order it for $426 from Best Buy in the US. (opens in new tab).

We must say that there are also savings that can be achieved on the 9th generation model, which is still quite good – currently £309 on Amazon in the UK (opens in new tab) and Only $270 in the US at Best Buy (opens in new tab) – but the discount on the 10th generation (which just launched last month) might at least give you some food to think about.

A common complaint about iPads is that entry-level models don’t come with much storage (as little as 64GB) and you have to pay a lot more to get higher capacities. Fortunately, with an external SSD you can solve this problem to some extent – you can access the content there (samples, projects, etc.) using the Files app.

All but one of the iPads in Apple’s current lineup have a USB-C port (the 9th-gen 10.2-inch model is the outlier), so connecting a drive is as easy as plugging in a cable. There are plenty of SSD Cyber ​​saves available on Amazon US and Amazon UK – we found this Crucial X6 2TB USB-C model (with read speeds up to 800MB/s) at Amazon UK, from £211 starting price to just £106.99 (opens in new tab).

If you’re one of those people and you love the US, it’s worth stopping by the Walmart website where you can find deals on both the 2020 and 2022 cellular compatible iPad Airs.

The older model is a cheaper option – $569 (less than $679) gets you the 4th generation cellular iPad Air with 64GB of storage (opens in new tab). There’s an A14 Bionic chip hidden inside, so it’s definitely not droopy.

If you’re ready to spend another $100, 2022 iPad Air with 5th-gen M1-powered 64GB storage is yours for $669 ($749) (opens in new tab).
