Amazon is trying to sweeten the deal for potential Prime members. Today, the online retailer is offering a free AmazonBasics 5600mAh external battery pack when select non-Prime customers begin a 30-day trial. You’ll want to be sure that you’re using an account that has not had Prime associated with it before to grab this offer.

  2. Within 72 hours you’ll receive an e-mail code and directions for redeeming the battery pack.
