Few portable battery chargers are powerful enough to charge the Nintendo Switch while you play it. RavPower’s 26,800 mAh power bank is one of them, and it’s now cheaper than ever for Polygon readers. It’s normally $75.99, but you can pick one up at RAVPower for $49.39 with the offer code RP35TVG at checkout.

If you like to play the Switch in handheld mode, you’re probably keenly aware of how quickly its battery depletes. This power bank from RavPower lets you keep going far longer than usual, and unless you’re really trying to make its 26,800 mAh capacity last, you don’t need to make the usual on-the-go compromises to save battery life, like dimming the screen’s brightness or enabling airplane mode.

Of course, this power bank can charge other devices, including phones and tablets. Its power delivery capability will come in handy for powering laptops while you use them, as long as they charge via USB-C, like newer MacBooks, Chromebooks and Windows laptops.
