Deal: Aukey Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Charger for $15.99 – 2/10/16

February 10, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Aukey has been releasing all sorts of new chargers, and hubs that support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology, as well as USB Type-C. Aukey has their own Quick Charge 3.0 charger now available, and actually it’s $10 off right now, and going for $25.99. Making it a fantastic price for having a somewhat future-proof wall charger. The best thing about Quick Charge 3.0 is the fact that it is backwards compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, Quick Charge 1.0 and regular conventional charging. Meaning that if you have a device that doesn’t support Quick Charge 3.0 (currently the only device available with Quick Charge 3.0 is the HTC One A9), you won’t harm your device by using this charger to charge your smartphone.

This is a single port USB charger here from Aukey. It’s a bit of a bigger wall charger than others around, and that’s due to the extra power needed for Quick Charge. However, it’s not so wide that it will cover up another outlet that it’s not using. Always a good thing. The design is pretty similar to their Quick Charge 2.0 turbo wall charger, which you can pick up here. This charger does not have USB Type-C, but it will work perfectly fine with a USB Type-A to Type-C cable, which every Nexus 6P came with. There’s no telling how long this sale will be going on for the Quick Charge 3.0 turbo wall charger, so you’ll want to pick it up as soon as possible.
