Nubia, of Red Magic fame, just teased an image of a phone charging on Weibo. In it, the device claims to be topping itself up at a ridiculous 80W speed. That's a pretty impressive number, and faster than anything else we've seen or heard of in a phone before, but it also raises some concerns. It claims to be doing this via USB PD, according to the image provided, but if it is, it's breaking the Power Delivery spec to do it.
Whether you travel a lot or simply want to avoid multiplying the number of wall chargers, getting one with several outlets can be a good idea. If you're looking for a reliable one with USB-C compatibility, you're in luck, as Aukey's 36W USB-C PD wall charger is down to $19 with this deal.
