After extensive leaks, Galaxy S21 owners discovered what had long been rumored: Samsung has stopped including a charger in the box with its super-premium smartphones. While that does mean you may have to shell out some extra cash if you want to get the fastest charging speeds possible, it doesn't mean you have to shell out a lot of it — or that you have to be stuck with Samsung's rather limited official options. We've rounded up the best supported super fast chargers (>20W) for Samsung's new smartphones, from the simple and affordable to the decidedly-multiport-overkill; there should be a charger here for every S21.
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.
Samsung is preparing to launch its new lineup of Galaxy S21 devices early next year. We got a look at some of the first official renders today, and while they seem like solid upgrades so far, there's one key feature that may be left out in some markets: a charger.
Power banks are one of the most convenient ways to fill up our devices while on the go. Sadly, most of them barely exceed an output of 30W, but Elecjet's PowerPie can deliver up to 45W over USB-C, allowing it to quickly charge a phone or even power a laptop. The product traditionally sells for $49, but it's now down to just $39 thanks to this coupon code.
Anker is a frequent visitor of Amazon's Deal of the Day promotions, and it's back again with a variety of well-priced products. This time around, there are deals to be had on batteries and chargers for your every need.
Anker is involved in Amazon's Deal of the Day sales pretty frequently, and this time around, there are some decent deals to be had on USB-C chargers. Our favorite is a 65W charger with two USB-A ports, a 45W USB-C PD port, and international plugs for $34.99, $15 off the regular price.
Technical advances in gallium nitride (GaN) have enabled wall chargers to push more power while shrinking in size, and Anker's PowerPort Atom PD 2 is a great example of that. Despite only measuring about 3" in width and height, the Atom PD 2 is capable of outputting 60W of electricity, and now you can get it for $20 off its usual price.
