A number of good USB-C chargers and cables are on sale today

Ars Technica

Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a handful of deals on worthwhile USB-C wall chargers, cables, and portable batteries over at Amazon. The retailer is running a one-day Gold Box sale on a variety of Anker chargers, for one, but we’ve also compiled a few other discounts on fast-charging USB-C accessories we’ve tested in the past.

These include

Aukey’s PB-Y13

, a slim 18W portable battery with a USB-C Power Delivery port—which is powerful enough to charge all recent iPhones and many Android phones at maximum speeds—alongside two USB-A ports. We’ve recommended it in our

guide to the best USB-C accessories

; it’s currently down to $19 from its usual $30 with the code “YHXP6UE6” at checkout. If you need a fast wall charger, meanwhile, the Dealmaster can vouch for

Aukey’s PA-D5

, which includes two USB-C PD ports, one of which can charge some (thinner) laptops at up to 60W, and uses

gallium nitride

(GaN) tech to put them both in a more-compact-than-usual package. It’s down to $25 from a typical street price of $40 when you clip the on-page coupon. Elsewhere, if you’re willing to pay for a higher-quality fast-charging cable, Anker’s six-foot

PowerLine III

and

PowerLine+ II

can reliably refill Android and iOS devices, respectively, and are both down to their lowest prices to date.

We have more recommended USB-C charger deals below, but first, a caveat: some smartphones are

already capable

of utilizing higher-power charging solutions than an 18W battery like the PB-Y13 can provide, and firms like Qualcomm are

working on solutions

that should reduce charging times even further. But for recent devices that can’t make use of all that power today, the deals below should still provide good value. And if you don’t need a new charger, we also have discounts on Lenovo ThinkPads, portable SSDs, and more. Have a look at the full rundown below.
