Aukey Direct via Amazon offers the Aukey 40W / 8A 5 Ports USB Desktop Charging Station Wall Charger with AlPower Tech for $9.99 Prime shipped, no coupon necessary.

NewEgg offers the Canon ImageCLASS LBP6200d Monochrome USB printer for $39.99 shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on any laser printer from a top tier manufacturer. This one is pretty bare bones with a USB interface and B&W printing but offers speedy duplex printing up to 26 ppm and high quality 2400 x 600 dpi. Amazon (where it is $60) reviewers give this 4/5 stars. Some features:

  • Space saving design will fit right on a desktop, reduce paper use with automatic two-sided printing right out of the box
  • Save time with print speeds of up to 26 pages per minute, first print in approx. 6 seconds
  • Efficient Energy Saver mode uses approximately 1.3 Watts, cutting energy usage and costs
  • The toner and drum are both combined into just one easy to replace Canon cartridge 126 to help improve image processing and precise character and overall image quality.

Replacement Toner cartridges for this one are also inexpensive starting at around $30. If you don’t already have one, you’ll need a USB A-B cable which starts at about $2.

Yesterday, it was revealed that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be charged faster (in some cases as fast as 2 hours to full) using a 2.1A AC charger like the one that comes with the iPad. Curiously, Apple has only included the typical  5W 1A iPhone charger that it traditionally has with its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus meaning that your iPhone charge times coming from much smaller iPhones are going to go through the roof.

Not to worry! The 9to5Toys team will get you updated to 2.1A USB ports across the board with the best products/deals we could find for a wide range of 2.1A USB needs… expand full story
