Aukey's B80 Bluetooth earbuds feature USB-C charging and aptX, and they're just $51 ($29 off) right now

Aukey manages to cram a lot of features into its Bluetooth earbuds relative to their prices. The company's B80 earbuds — big brother to the impressive B60 — pack Bluetooth 5.0, aptX support, and USB-C charging.

Satechi 75W dual USB-C PD charging hub hands-on: Great for the home, office, and travel

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 specZeroLemon 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.

Satechi launches 75W charging hub with two USB-C PD ports, plus more compact 30W travel charger

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.
