[Deal Alert] Get 20% off Xtorm's EU-friendly USB-C hubs and chargers with coupon code

Yesterday I reviewed some of Xtorm's USB-C products and came away pleased but not convinced by the prices. It then occurred to me that a little discount could go a long way in making these prices palatable so I reached out to Xtorm and got y'all a 20% coupon code discount. If you were interested in grabbing something from the company, this makes the products more competitive against other brands.

Xtorm makes EU-compatible (EU plug, 220V) hubs, chargers, and cables. The most interesting to me was the Vigor power hub since it marries one USB-C port, one USB QC 3.0 port, 4 regular 2.4A USB ports, and a Qi wireless charging pad on top.

[Deal Alert] Choetech and Tronsmart both have two packs of USB Type-A to Type-C cables on sale for $7.50 or less ($5-7 off)

If you've bought a new Android device in the past six months, chances are pretty good that it charges via USB Type-C. There are some nice advantages to the new charging standard (that I wish was more standardized) but there is also one fairly large disadvantage. USB Type-C cords cost a lot more than their MicroUSB brethren.
