As we wind down 2017, the 9to5Toys team is reviewing the year to see what stories and products were your favorites. Our Product of the Year was the DJI Spark Drone which our readers loved but at around $349/ea it wasn’t nearly our best seller.

What product sold the most units? Amazon is the only US vendor that allows us to see the most accurate stats and accounts for over 55% of our sales by number so we’re going to go with their data specifically….**drumroll**

Our biggest seller was the AUKEY ULTRA COMPACT USB Wall Charger w/ Dual Port 2.4A Output

That’s not a terribly exciting product but its popularity lends itself to how helpful it is, thanks to portability and an inexpensive price. Apple only includes a 1A charger with its incredibly popular iPhone line and most phone and tablet makers only include a single port on their default chargers.

This little plug, which is a smaller size than the default one that comes with most phones charges Apple and Android devices as fast as USB-A will allow – 2.4A at 5V. And it will charge two devices at a time at that speed. It allows you to charge your iPhone twice as fast and a friend or iPad gets powered up too! It gets great reviews, a two-year warranty and our readers kept coming back for more.

Aukey, in celebrating this achievement with us, is offering our readers a chance to pick it up today and tomorrow for just $8 with code AUXMAS06 at Amazon. “Throw away Apple’s adapter and add this to your tech arsenal”.

What else sold well? There were:

  • 3 gift cards in the top 10
  • 2 smart home plugs in the top 10
  • 37 of the top 100 products mentioned “Apple” in the product title
  • Anker had 16 products in the top 100 including #3, while Aukey had 8
  • Top Non-tech? A first aid kit came in at #21, #31 was a tool set, and #37 was Crest’s White Strips (our readers have great smiles!)

Below find the full top 100 sale items on Amazon for 9to5Toys in 2017:

Going back through the year, there have been a lot of important product introductions. Apple released its iPhone X, new LTE Apple Watches and the iconic $159 AirPods just recently began shipping without a lead time. Google, meanwhile, delivered its next-gen Pixel 2’s and a whole plethora of home products including the very inexpensive $29 Google Home Mini or $399 Max which we long considered for the product of the year.

However last year’s 2016 Product of the year was Amazon’s Echo Dot, which is the same class of speaker and doing two small smart speakers in a row is no fun. Speaking of Amazon, they released a whole new line of smart speakers this past year, including our favorite the $130 Echo Spot which goes on sale this week

There were a ton of other products we considered this year as well. There is probably nothing better for kids than the $240 Piper Computer kit which allows them to build a Minecraft Computer, or my personal favorite kids party gift: Snap Circuits which teaches beginning electronics. 

There are also honorable mentions which we should include, such as Anker’s Eufy Robo Vacs, which we found to offer stellar value and performance in our hands-on review.

But one product outshined them all this year… expand full story
