Samsung subsidiary Harman is mostly known for its audio brands like Harman Kardon and JBL, but today, the company has announced that it's broadening its horizon with a new brand focused on sustainable and environment-friendly charging products — InfinityLab.
Do you really need another power brick with your next phone? Google, following in the footsteps of Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi, thinks that you don't. The company has announced that the Pixel 5a, just announced (and reviewed!) today, is the last Pixel phone that will come with a charger in the box.
Hey Amazon, y'all doin' alright? Over the last few months you've kicked off almost every single budget mobile accessory brand for alleged review manipulation, and now Anker is the cheese which stands alone. For example: it's the only one that's getting its very own "Prime Day Favorites" highlighted section on Amazon's subsidiary and sister site, Woot.com.
There are countless options for picking up charging gear for all of your mobile devices these days — or at least, there were — but Anker has always been among the top of the pack. The company has been a mainstay for third-party AC adapters, battery packs, cables, and more for years now. If you're looking to keep powered up both at home and on the go, it's your lucky day. Anker has a wide selection of power banks and chargers on sale as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day, perfect for hitting the road this summer.
If you're picking up a new charger for your phone, tablet, or anything else, there's a pretty good chance it's from Anker. The company has been a leader in offering affordable wall chargers, USB cables, and battery packs, all with improved quality over whatever your phone's manufacturer included (or didn't include) in the box. Today, Anker is introducing a new generation of its GaN technology along with a refreshed lineup of its Nano chargers.

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.
When it comes to chargers, smaller usually means less powerful, but that's not always the case. RAVPower is offering a 2-pack of some pretty small 20W fast chargers with USB-C ports for $17.89 after two coupons, making this a pretty good deal if you need a couple of extra chargers around.
In a new post on Chinese social media network Weibo, Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun unveiled the brand's new device's packaging, mentioning it's particularly light and thin. Even though it may seem particularly odd for a CEO to post about a new phone's box rather than the device itself, there's actually an underlying explanation for that: The main reason why the packaging is thin and light is because it's been stripped out of the customary charger that usually comes with the handset.
Chargers are some of the most essential accessories you can spend money on, and right now, Amazon is offering some great deals on power products from Anker. Everything from car chargers to power banks is on sale, with options starting at just $12.59 — up to 41% off normal prices.
Christmas is coming up, and before all the gifts are open, there's one thing you should remember: Most of those snazzy new gadgets need to be charged. But before you toss a five dollar Amazon special in little Billy's stocking to go with his new Nintendo Switch, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Although the dark days of dangerous and out of spec chargers are mostly past us, we still think it's worth throwing a few extra bucks at a known-good charger. To help your purchasing decision, we took a look at a handful of different models from Aukey's current charger lineup, from 18W to 100W and $15 to $50.
