Upgrade your phone this Prime Day with last-minute deals on accessories under $40

Prime Day isn’t over yet, and while many deals have sold out, there are still plenty of gems to be found if you know where to look. Everything is on sale from phone cases and pop sockets to mounts and microSD cards, but only these deals are worth your time, attention, and hard-earned cash.

PopSockets PopGrips and PopTops – 20% off

Wait! LET ME TALK!! Yes, crack all the silly jokes you want when you need a grip for your phone, but PopSockets have a legitimate, medical reason to use them: they help prevent RSIs (Repetitive Stress Injuries). Years of propping my phones up with my pinky made my left pinky absolutely hate me, and PopSockets allowed me to hold my phone in a less stressful position and avoid the permanent damage I had done to my hand. to aggravate.


There are dozens of PopGrips and PopTops on offer; Even some of their more expensive tops like the Deco line and licensed designs like Stitch get the discount. Mounts and stands are also included in the promotion alongside the weird but quirky PopThirst line of drink koozies.

Starting at $6 at Amazon

Samsung PRO Plus microSD Cards – 50% off

Fewer phones use microSD cards these days, but if yours does, this 256GB from Samsung has great read and write speeds, although they only advertise sequential write speeds, like when you’re recording 4K video on a freshly formatted card. The 128GB and 512GB cards were also 50% off, but they’re sold out, so grab the 256GB cards before they’re gone, too.

iOttie Easy One Touch Car Mounts – Up to 32% off

iOttie has been the most well-known and trusted car mount brand out there for almost a decade, and their best products always get Prime Day deals. While the MagSafe-compatible Velox series gets the most attention, the three mounts worth their deal price today are the Easy One Touch 5, Easy One Touch Wireless 2, and Auto Sense. The One Touch 5 doesn’t have wireless charging, but costs under $20, comes in many configurations including a cup holder, and should last for years.

The Easy One Touch Wireless 2 is designed for Google, which means it’s guaranteed to charge Pixel phones at 10W, although thick cases can interfere. The Wireless 2 is great for Pixels but not Samsung Galaxy for which you should snag the iOttie Auto Sense which has better Samsung support.

  • iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless 2 (Dash/Windshield): $34 at Amazon ($16 off)
  • iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless 2 (Air Vent + CD Slot): $37 at Amazon ($13 off)
  • iOttie Auto Sense: $45 at Amazon ($15 off)

Anker USB-C to USB-C Cable – Up to 40% off

USB-C cables might seem like a dime a dozen during Prime Day, but most will be dead before Black Friday because they don’t have the same steadfast quality as Anker. Anker’s PowerLine series was the gold standard in USB cables even before USB-C was introduced, and USB-C cables are worth every penny, especially today. The Powerline+ has been around for a few years, but it’s still a solid 60W cable for charging phones, tablets, and Chromebooks, while the Anker 333 2-pack offers two 100W cables for the price of one.

For my money, the cable that’s in my shopping cart right now is the Anker 643 Flow. Rated for 100W charging for laptops and power stations, this cable will charge any Power Delivery device you throw it at, and it’s available in seven colors and two lengths. Some configurations are already sold out, so grab them before they’re gone.

Spigen ArcField 15W Wireless Charger – 20% off

Please skip the $5 “15W” wireless charging pads out there; Most of them won’t charge the Pixel 6 at 15W, and none of them will charge Galaxy phones at that speed either. 15W for Pixel 6 requires EPP, and third-party chargers can only reach 10W for Samsung phones. Luckily for us, the Spigen ArcField does both, using the Power Delivery input instead of the outdated QuickCharge 2.0. No wall plug is provided, but you can use the same PD charger that you use with your phone or laptop.

Baseus 65W 3-Port Fast PD Power Adapter – 40% off

This is our favorite Galaxy S22 charger and our favorite Chromebook charger. So if you’re only looking at one charger today, make it this one. It has a handy chart to help you work out which ports you want to use for which device – C1 for laptops or the fastest-charging phone, C2 and A for slower-charging devices – and its foldable pins help it slim down even further to sit neatly in your gear bag.

Anker Nano II 65W Chargers – $15 off

Anker’s premium Nano II range has evolved from a trio of single-port chargers to a variety of multi-port options. Still, these two configurations of the Nano II 65W are the future-proof chargers you need. The Anker 715 Nano II is an ultra-portable wall charger that’s roughly the size of a golf ball and charges a device at up to 65W, including PPS charging for the Samsung Galaxy S21/S22 range. You can buy the larger Anker 726 Nano II for a few dollars more, which can charge one device at 65W, or split it up for 45W charging for laptops and 20W charging for phones.

Wolsco 10,000mAh 20W Pro Series Portable Charger – 67% off

This brand might sound different, but the charger itself is exactly like what RAVPower used to sell on Amazon, right down to the product slides in the listing. Believe it or not, that’s a good thing because this charger has performed quite well in the past. Just a note that the max power is 20W and if you have two devices connected they will have to share that 20W.

$10 at Amazon

Mophie Powerstation XXL Power Bank – 33% off

This large portable charger can charge up to three devices simultaneously, including 18W USB-C Power Delivery charging. The 20,000mAh capacity can keep the whole family’s phones charged and alive for the 9 hours you’re queuing for trips at Walt Disney World, although charging at 18W also means you’ll need longer to charge than our next performance bank

$40 at Amazon

HenHot 65W 20,000mAh Power Bank – 20% off

Not only is this beauty capable of charging laptops thanks to the 65W output, but 65W input means this power bank takes significantly less time to recharge compared to the Mophie XXL, while still being roughly the same size Has. There’s only one USB-C and one USB-A port, but they split the power to 45W/18W when both are in use, so you can keep your laptop and phone charged throughout the marathon of an upcoming convention day.

Brand Name Phone Cases – Starting at $5

(Even Samsung’s official cases are on sale!)

Phone cases can be the most annoying product to find on Prime Day because single phone deals become a game of digital whack-a-mole, but luckily there are a few ways to avoid the headache and get the good case deals to find. First, Amazon has a special Prime Day collection of cases from brands like Speck, Case-Mate, Pelican, Tech21, Zagg, and Samsung itself, with subsections for Galaxy phones, Pixel phones, and even Motorola phones.

Starting at $5 at Amazon But what if your phone isn’t included? Amazon’s search bar has a category in the dropdown called Prime Day just for today. You can click on this category and search for [phone name here] Case (or screen protector if you also need one of those). Here is an example of this search for Samsung Galaxy S22 cases. If you don’t know which cases are high quality, you can always compare them with our list of the best Galaxy S22 cases.

Are you looking for more?

While cases might not appeal to you if you’re waiting for the Pixel 6a next week or the Galaxy Z Fold4 next month, you never know when the cat will chew up another charger or a charger will never “disappear” in your kid’s room. to be seen again. Anker has quality options for both, and PopSockets are totally worth trying when they basically cost about the same as a large coffee.

If you’re looking for something bigger, like wireless earbuds or smartwatches, we’ve got you covered too.
