Despite the fact that we all use them on a daily basis, smartphone chargers usually aren’t high up on our priority list. Most of us just use the charger that comes with our smartphones when we buy them, but the included chargers can often deliver sub-par charging speeds. And if you happened to purchase a new iPhone in 2020, there’s a good chance that you didn’t even get a wall charger for the phone in the box.
In early October, Apple announced that its iPhone 12 series and Apple Watches would not arrive with a charging adapter. Apple’s reasoning for this is that they want to reach net-zero climate impact by 2030 and making these changes will help them to reach that goal. Although it is a noble concept, it doesn’t help consumers who need an adapter or a way to charge their devices.
Fortunately, if you’re not willing to pay Apple’s unreasonably high prices for an adapter that should have been included with the phone, there are plenty of third-party options. Cue in Aukey. Aukey is a leading innovator in power and charging technology. They invented the OmniaChip Chipset, OmniStack, and Dynamic Detect and they are also known for producing the world’s smallest PD chargers. They make chargers for both iPhone and Android smartphones and their products can be purchased directly from Amazon. On top of that, Aukey offers 30-day returns after purchase and a 24-month on all their products.
If you’re looking for a charger for your Android device or new iPhone, Aukey’s 2020 lineup is a great place to start.
