If the wireless charging craze is starting to get your attention, then now’s the time to take the leap. You can buy a great wireless charger for the price of a USB-C cable with the $17 Anker PowerWave.
Right now, Amazon is selling this fast wireless charger for a 35% discount. Anker is a leader in wireless charging technology, and a deal like this is kind of ludicrous. There are charging cables that cost more than $17, and since this charger works with Android and iOS devices, you’re making out like a bandit.
The PowerWave is clearly a bit different from your typical wireless charger. Instead of sitting flat, the PowerWave acts like a kickstand. You can effectively see your phone’s screen while it’s charging, which makes the PowerWave great for desktops, kitchen counters, and nightstands.
You don’t have to take off your phone case to use the PowerWave unless you’re using an abnormally thick case. And while the PowerWave isn’t Qi or Quick-Charge certified, it still provides a fast charge to your phone. It offers 10-watt high-speed charging for Galaxy phones, and 5-watt charging for iPhones. To put things in perspective a bit, the iPhone X comes with a 5 watt charging cable, and the Galaxy 9 comes with a 15-watt charging cable.
This is a good chance to get your hands on a neat wireless charging stand. But don’t wait too long, because good deals can’t last forever.
