Gone are the days when you had to carry a variety of chargers and cables in your bag. Thanks to the USB-C standard, you can use a single wall charger to power all of your devices, including your laptop. Unfortunately, most 60W ones are relatively bulky, but Choetech's is compact and as powerful as a standard MacBook Pro charger, and it's currently down to just $9 thanks to this deal. Read More
Charging devices can often be painful, but things have become much simpler thanks to USB-C cables. Indeed, you can now carry a single charger to fill up your phone, laptop, and accessories. However, to power up a computer at full speed, you'd need a wall charger with a relatively high wattage, which often tend to be bulky. Thankfully, RAVPower's 61W USB-C PD wall charger can deliver enough power to fill up a MacBook Pro, while remaining relatively small. Thanks to this deal, you can get it for just $25, which is $11 less than what it usually sells for. Read More

Having two USB-C phones and a MacBook Pro means I can use a single charger to power them all up. However, my laptop's wall charger is relatively bulky, and there are times when I'd rather not carry it around. Thankfully, I just found the perfect deal: RAVPower's small USB-C PD wall chargers are down to $29 and $30 on Amazon, depending on the number of ports. Read More

The USB Type-C marketplace is no longer the shitshow that it once was, though it still pays to be careful when buying a new charger or battery. Much of the time, this means having to pony up a bit extra for the properly rated offerings, but that's not always the case. Nekteck's 90W USB-C Power Delivery charger with built-in cable is certified by the USB-IF, and it's only $25.99 on Amazon. Read More
Anker had a Gold Box sale on Amazon yesterday with a variety of charging equipment being discounted, but an eagle-eyed commenter spotted an arguably better deal on another charger by Anker — a 50W USB-C charger for the princely sum of $22.
We would love for USB-C to be as ubiquitous as possible, and to avoid using USB-A and MicroUSB cables and ports, but the truth of the matter is that we're still in a transition phase where smartphones have adopted the standard, computers are moving in that direction, and accessories are still (generally) lagging behind. If you have multiple devices that can charge over USB-C, a hub that only provides one C port isn't ideal. But those with two ports or more are still a rarity.
Aukey had the PA-Y6, but it turned out to be not up to spec; ZeroLemon and Scoche have some options, but their low output makes them less ideal for charging laptops; and Anker just announced the 100W PowerPort Atom PD 4, but it's not yet available and should cost about $100 when it does come to market.

USB-C is becoming more and more ubiquitous these days, and while there's always a bit of confusion about compatibility, what's supported what isn't, and that new DRM-like authentication program, things have been mostly moving in the right direction. Options for chargers, cables, and other accessories are more varied now, and prices are dropping down.
However, if you own a few USB-C devices, you may have noticed something: multi-port chargers often have just one USB-C output, with the rest being USB-A. With the exception of Aukey's 36W dual USB-C PD, I can't find anything from Anker, Ravpower, or other known brands, despite doing this search every few weeks. Read More
Did you get a new gadget this Christmas? Maybe it was a new Android smartphone, a Chromebook, a smartwatch, some earphones, other miscellaneous accessories like a 360-degree camera, or even a new iPad Pro. If you're scratching your head trying to figure out what to charge those new gadgets with, without taking up every wall outlet in the house, then we have just the deals for you. Aukey has discounted several of its wall chargers on Amazon, dropping their price anywhere from $7 to $17. Read More
