Between audio goodies, smart speakers, and computers, there are loads of great specials on Amazon Prime Day. But what if you’re looking to augment your existing smartphone? We take a look at some of the best smartphone accessories on special during this sales period.
There are plenty of great microSD card deals available on Amazon right now thanks to Prime Day, but this one might be the steepest discount of the bunch.
SanDisk has lopped $49 off the 128GB Extreme microSD card, selling it for just $20. In other words, this is a 71 percent discount off the original price. So if you need more storage for your smartphone, camera, Switch or other gadget, this is an affordable option.
Whether you’re a frequent flier or constantly on the road, a large power bank is one of the best smartphone accessories you can have. And this Anker power bank is a hefty one, offering 20,100mAh capacity.
The Anker PowerCore offers enough capacity to charge up a Galaxy S9 five times, with some juice left over. The only real downside is that it’s much slower than wired fast charging in most cases. It also lacks wireless charging functionality but then again, who cares when you have that much juice on tap?
Almost every smartphone needs a case to protect it from everyday dings and major drops, and Amazon has a selection of discounted covers on offer too.
The cases are largely restricted to the last few iPhone and Galaxy generations, ranging from the iPhone XS and Galaxy S10 to the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S8. So those with Huawei, LG, Motorola or Nokia phones might have to look elsewhere for cut-price covers.
USB cables are always nice to have around the place, allowing you to quickly transfer data, charge up your device, and more. Fortunately, accessory maker Anker is offering another special on Prime Day, giving you two USB-C cables at a discounted price.
These particular cables have a braided nylon exterior for durability, so hopefully your cable won’t stop working after a few months. The firm also says these cables are compatible with the major fast charging protocols.
Don’t have a smartphone holder for your car yet? Well, you can do much worse than this Tuff Tech holder, which has received a 51 percent discount.
The accessory fits into your cup holder and comes with an adjustable base/arm. Furthermore, the maker says it’s equipped with five magnets to ensure that your phone stays in place.
Sure, there are faster wireless charging pads out there, but the Belkin 5w pad is a pretty decent deal at $20.99. So what do you get for your cash? This pad offers five-watt charging speeds and the expected Qi compatibility, which means it’ll charge up everything from your recent iPhone to your Pixel 3 and Samsung phone.
Again, we’ve seen fast wireless charging emerge as a standard in recent years, but this might be a solid addition to your office desk or in an environment with plenty of Qi-enabled smartphones.
