Aukey is among our favorite brands when it comes to affordable and powerful chargers, but some evidence is mounting that legitimate reviews might not be enough for the company. A 7GB data leak on an unsecured Chinese server (spotted by SafetyDetectives) exposed a number of Amazon sellers offering customers free products in exchange for favorable reviews, and it looks like Aukey is one of the companies caught in the middle of this scheme. Amazon has taken action and removed almost all products sold by the company.

When Samsung launched its Galaxy S21 series, it was among the first manufacturers to follow in Apple's footsteps — like the Cupertino company, Samsung removed chargers from the box. The manufacturer explained the move was made for environmental reasons, saying that most people already have compatible chargers at home and wouldn't necessarily have to get yet another one. But what if you do want or need a new charger to go with your new Galaxy S21? We've got you covered with a fine selection.
I'm not here to kick dirt on the grave of old-school wired headphones. There was plenty to love about them, like affordability, solid sound quality, and a lack of charging. But wires have their own fair share of issues — just ask anyone who's had earbuds yanked out of their ears while passing by a door handle. Switching to Bluetooth headphones keeps things simple, and you don't have to spend a lot of money for a great experience. If you're ready to upgrade, Aukey has four excellent pairs of wireless earbuds on sale today to choose from at Amazon.
Nothing is more frustrating than misplacing your phone's charger. While you might be able to scrounge around the house to find a replacement, it probably doesn't have all the features you need. Every modern charger should support basics like USB-C and fast-charging, but if the only option you've found is an old Samsung adapter from the Galaxy S5 days, you'll be lucky if your phone finishes charging by the morning. Keeping a spare or two around is a must, and thankfully, you can grab Aukey's Minima USB-C charger for just $8 today at Amazon.
While some of us continue to mourn the loss of our precious headphone jack, there's a small bright spot of hope for those looking to leave dongles behind. True wireless earbuds are cheaper than they've ever been these days, making the switch to Bluetooth headphones cheap and easy without losing out on fancy features. You can grab a pair of Aukey's wireless earbuds with active noise-canceling built-in for just $20 from Amazon.
Want the convenience of listening to podcasts or taking calls with true wireless earbuds? Not looking to kill off the rest of your stimulus money to get them? Aukey and its subsidiary BCMASTER make $30 TWEs that do the job, but they're even better when you can snag them on discount at Amazon.
Bluetooth headphones can be pretty convenient, but most of them cost more than run-of-the-mill wired headsets. If you've been holding out on making the switch to true wireless buds, today might finally be the time. You can grab Aukey's excellent EP-T31 earbuds for just $26 after discounts and promo codes, marking the lowest price yet on Amazon for this particular pair.
While some Android phones still include headphone jacks in 2021, most of us have moved onto wireless headphones (whether by choice or by force). If you're looking for an extra set to throw in a gym bag, or you've finally given up on the fight for wires, Aukey has a huge selection of wireless earbuds to pick from as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day.
If you're on the lookout for a pair of versatile true wireless buds that work well both when exercising, commuting, and working, search no more. Aukey's praised EP-T10 are on sale, down to just $20 instead of their $50 MSRP.
Are you an Amazon Prime member? Would you rather carry a smaller wall charger than you are right now? Can't compromise on speed? You should probably grab Aukey's 20W Minima USB-C charger right now for an insanely low price.
