Amazon is currently offering the official Google 30W USB-C Charger for $20.32 with free shipping for Prime members or in orders over $25. Normally selling for $25, today’s offer amounts to a new all-time low at cents under our previous mention and nearly $5 in savings. This is still one of the first price cuts overall, as well. Google’s official 30W charger was designed to deliver improved refuel times to its latest 6 and 6 Pro smartphones. The compact wall adapter will let you take full advantage of either handset’s top charging rates and comes backed with an official Google seal of approval attached. Our in-depth hands-on review details exactly how the charger stacks up and how it compares to third-party alternatives. Head below for more.
As far as more affordable alternatives go, ditching the first-party seal of approval is a great way to save some extra cash. While you’ll have to supply your own cable, this 27W Spigen USB-C Charger at $18 will deliver much of the same experience to your Pixel 6 series smartphone without the Google premium attached. We found it to deliver a similar all-around charging experience to the 30W offering at notably less.
Earlier in the week we went hands-on with Anker’s just-released accessory. Entering the GaNPrime lineup, the new 65W USB-C power bank delivers a versatile way to refuel iPhone and even MacBooks when out and about. We called it the Swiss Army knife of chargers in our Tested with 9to5Toys review, as well.
