Buy yourself a better phone and laptop charger with these Prime Day deals

From phones to laptops and beyond, USB-C Power Delivery chargers are simply the best.

Trying to keep all of your tech and toys charged day after day is no small challenge, but having a good Power Delivery charger to center your gear around is a godsend. Whether you need a newer, smaller charger for your phone since the new iPhones and Galaxy S21 don't include one in the box anymore, or you want to use one singular charger for both your laptop and phone — these are the USB-C charger deals that stand out the most right now.

Though Prime Day isn't live just yet, we're already beginning to see some excellent deals appearing on USB-C chargers and other products. Below we're gathering some of our favorites and you'll also find the best Prime Day USB-C Charger deals right here once they go live.

Making way for the new one

Anker PowerPort III Pod 65W PIQ 3.0 PPS Fast Charger

A couple of weeks ago, Anker announced a new Nano II 65W charger that's about 40% smaller than this one, and it also sells for $40. This still compact previous model is primed for a major discount on Prime Day, and it'll still fast-charge laptops and phones.

For you and your friends

UGREEN USB-C 65W 4-Port PD Charger | 20% off at Amazon

Keep it all together

RAVPower 65W 4-Port Desktop USB Charging Station | $17 off at Amazon

Ultra compact

Apple 20W USB-C Power Adapter

Amazon's offering a slight discount on the Apple 20W USB-C Power Adapter right now. While it's not a huge savings, you can't go wrong with this reliable option.

$17.98 at Amazon

Sleek and stylish

Anker PowerPort Atom III Slim 30W | $24 at Amazon

This slim, sophisticated-looking GaN charger can charge either a phone, tablet, or laptop while also fitting into low clearance outlets like between your nightstand and bed. It can also hide in a deck of playing cards if your coworkers tend to "borrow" your charger.

$23.99 at Amazon

Of course, once you grab a new charger, chances are you're going to need some new USB-C cables to reach between your phone and your new charger. If you're grabbing a cable specifically for charging, consider grabbing a long cable so you can run it from your wall charger halfway across your bed so you can charge while you scroll Insta in bed.

What to look for when buying a charger

There are a myriad of factors that go into picking the perfect charger, but if you need a short, sweet checklist before you buy, here's the one I use:

  • Does it have Power Delivery? Just because a charger has a Type-C port does not mean it's Power Delivery. If it's not, the most power that USB-C port can output safely is 15W, which makes it practically worthless. So check to be sure it's Power Delivery — and if it also supports PPS (Programmable Power Supply, a specialized classification within the Power Delivery spec), that's even better.
  • Does it use GaN chips? Gallium nitride is a newer semiconductor type that is smaller, more efficient, and generates less heat, three very, very good things for a charger. The best GaN chargers have come down in price over the last 18 months and Prime Day is a great time to catch one on sale. This isn't a dealbreaker unless you have small children in the house; if you do, GaN chargers are less likely to scald little fingers if your little one is poking around your desk.
  • What's the power distribution? If you're buying a single-port charger, this won't matter to you, but for multi-port chargers, you need to know what happens if you plug in multiple things. Some 90W two-port chargers will limit both ports to 45W when both in use, even if one device is an 18W phone and the other is a 65W laptop. These breakdowns are either shown in the photos of a listing or in the specs chart further down, but it's always there on a good charger.
  • Do the prongs fold up? Even if you don't plan to travel with this charger, folding plugs mean that when it's not in use, you're less likely to bend or break the plug when it's stuck in your electronics drawer or in a backpack. Some chargers also allow you to swap the prongs between US AC prongs and international configurations, so it's worth keeping an eye for if you're a frequent flier.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
