Anker USB-C Cables, Nebula Projector & More Discounted At Amazon – October 2018


Anker discounted a slew of items on Monday, and now it has discounted a few more products for the week. This includes some of its popular braided USB-C cables, as well as the Nebula Capsule projector, and a USB-C wall charger. So if you're in need of some new cables or a wall charger, now is definitely the time to pick one up, seeing as these will only be one sale for a limited time – through next week.

First up is the Nebula Capsule, which is a very small portable projector from Anker. Nebula is a sub-brand of Anker, and is where all of its projectors are housed. Nebula has already put out some pretty small projectors that work really well, and the Capsule is a crowd-favorite, coming in at the size of a soda can. Nebula does have a 360-degree speaker included here, so no matter where you are sitting in relation to the Capsule, you are going to get some great sounding audio. The Capsule can put out a picture up to 100-inches (measured diagonally), and it puts that out at 480p. Unfortunately, it is not HD of even full HD, but that's to be expected from a projector, and especially one at this size and price. The Capsule has a battery life of around four hours and it also runs on a customized version of Android 7.1. It's not quite Android TV, but many of your favorite Android apps are available. Unfortunately, there's no Chromecast support here either. The Nebula Capsule is normally priced at $349, however with the promo code CAPSULEV you can save about 24-percent off of the price, bringing it down to $264.90. That's a really good price for this portable projector, and it is also the lowest it has ever been.

When it comes to USB-C cables, Anker is discounting two-packs of its 3.3-foot and 6.6-foot long Nylon Braided cables here. These are available in black, silver and red. These are double braided cables, which makes them more expensive than the traditional USB-C cables, and that is because these are going to be more rugged than other cables out there. For instance, Anker guarantees that these can withstand over 5000 bends in its lifetime, before they break. That is especially important for those that have kids, and love to play with their charging cables, or even pets that like to chew on them. Anker also touts that these are some of the strongest cables out there, though we haven't tested that aspect of its nylon braided cables. We mostly stick with just using them to charge our smartphones and other devices. However, it's also important to note that these are compatible with fast and quick charge chargers. They will support up to 3A, so they can be used to charge your new Pixel 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, LG V40 ThinQ, or really any other USB-C device out there on the market. These are USB-A to USB-C cables, so you can use your existing charger with these here. You can pick up the 3.3-foot and 6.6-foot long cables using the links below. The 3.3-foot long 2-pack is typically priced at $8.99, but with the promo code ANKER322 you can save 20-percent, bringing the price down to $7.19. Meanwhile the 6.6-foot long 2-pack is typically priced at $9.99, and with the promo code ANKER333 you will also save 20-percent, bringing the price down to $8.09. Both of which are really good deals on new USB-C cables.

Finally, as part of this round of deals from Anker, there is the USB-C wall charger that is on sale. This USB-C wall charger does 60W, and it also supports USB-C PD. USB-C PD or Power Delivery, is an important feature, seeing as that is how many smartphone makers are doing "fast charging" now, since it is safer than just traditional USB charging. But it is also necessary to charge larger USB-C products like a laptop (like the Apple MacBook, Lenovo Yoga 900, Dell XPS 13, LG Gram and many more), as well as the Nintendo Switch. This means that you could effectively use the same charger for everything that uses USB-C in your home, which is pretty impressive to say the least. 60W is actually what Apple uses to charge its MacBooks, and Nintendo also uses that same speed for the Switch, so this could effectively replace those wall chargers, at a much lower price. Not to mention it can still charge your smartphone. Now, technically, this does not support Quick Charge 3.0, but with USB-C PD, you will still get fast charging, up to 3A. So depending on the device, you may get very fast charging, or slower fast charging. Unfortunately, the USB-C cables that Anker also has on sale today will not work with this wall charger, since those are USB-A to USB-C, and you would need some USB-C to USB-C cables here. Anker does sell some, so you'll want to pick up a few, since this does not come with a cable itself. The Anker PowerPort Speed 1 is normally priced at $39.99, which is a very good price in the first place, considering how much competing USB-C PD wall chargers go for. But with the promo code ANKERPD6 you can save 20-percent, and bring the price down to $31.99.
