Have you heard the news? Amazon’s annual Prime Day is just around the corner — but big savings are already underway for gadgets, games, toys and more.
Unlike last year, Prime Day didn’t take place during summer. But don’t let the delay fool you — the web’s biggest retailer has some surprises up its sleeve. Tap or click here to see some of the hottest deals available now.
To kick off Prime Day early, Amazon is offering some major discounts on electronic goods through its AmazonBasics label. If you’re in need of a new charging cable or power strip, you can save up to 40% without the wait. Here are some of our favorite picks.
Power all your devices without blowing a fuse
Surge protectors do more than just let us plug in all our gadgets at once. They can actually help prevent fires thanks to their built-in circuit breaker.
This 3-Outlet Surge Protector from Anker can power up to six gadgets thanks to its combination of outlets and USB ports (including USB-C). It also features a braided cord to prevent messy tangling.
Charge your phone without hugging the wall
If you own an iPhone, you already know how annoying it is to get a charge while sitting comfortably. Unless you’re right near a wall outlet, you’ll have to put your phone down and wait — and the same goes for wireless charging.
This six-foot-long Lightning to USB cable from AmazonBasics can stretch across your room and give you the freedom to use your phone more comfortably. It’s certified to work with iPhones and its plastic coating is good for up to 4,000 bends.
A more affordable way to charge
Of course, your Lightning cable won’t plug directly into a wall outlet. You need a USB adapter to get power, and this USB adapter from AmazonBasics has you covered for a fraction of the cost.
What’s more, you can also pick an adapter with up to six USB ports right on the product listing. There’s even an option for a black adapter — in case you’re tired of the one Apple shipped with your phone.
Portable power when you need it
Of course, you’re not always going to be near a wall outlet when your device needs juice. A wireless charging pack is the easiest way to keep your devices running even when you’re on the go.
Anker’s PowerCore power bank can charge up to two regular USB devices at once. You can also put any wireless-charging devices on top for a quick boost of power.
Get your devices ready for the morning with this wireless charging pad
If you’re going to bed, there’s no need to keep your device tethered to a wall. A wireless charging pad lets you set down your phone and forget about it. When morning comes, it’ll be fully charged and ready to go.
Anker’s PowerWave II charger supports a range of popular smart devices and headphones — along with fast-charging on gadgets like the Samsung Galaxy Note series.
Bonus: Save big on Apple’s newest 8th-generation iPad
Apple recently updated its 8th-generation iPad series with powerful A12 Bionic chips. This helps it process complex tasks like handwriting recognition, which comes standard in the latest version of iPadOS.
And now, you can get this new powerhouse of an iPad for around $300. That’s big savings on a device that will last you for several years. Plus, it’s compatible with many of the devices on this list.
