With Christmas just a few weeks away, today is a great time to look for reasonably-priced yet thoughtful gifts for friends and family. For those looking for something useful, smartphone accessories from Tronsmart and Aukey might be great choices.
These two brands may not be well known in Malaysia, but in the US they are among the best brands for chargers and power banks. Obviously they do not have the luxury of Chinese companies like Xiaomi offering solid power bank options, but the two brands hold up pretty well in their offerings.
Both Aukey and Tronsmart offer Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 certified chargers and power banks, with backwards compatibility to Quick Charge 2.0 and 1.0. This standard also applies to non-Qualcomm powered smartphones, so either way you’re looking at solid fast charging performance from these products.
For example, this QC 3.0 charger from Tronsmart is available for 30% off its RM89 retail price, and comes with a USB-C cable in the box. For those who have multiple products to charge at home, the Aukey PA-T14 at RM94.05 has three QC 3.0 ports, while the PA-T15 wall charger has five for those who really need them, and is priced at RM132.05.
Meanwhile, Aukey and Tronsmart both also have QC 3.0-certified car chargers, which are really useful for those who are always on the move. Aukey’s CC-T37 car charger has two QC 3.0 ports, and is available for 24% off its RM99 RRP.
Finally, Aukey and Tronsmart QC 3.0 power banks are also available this 12/12. Tronsmart’s Presto PBT10 10,000mAh power bank (RM132.05) uses lithium-polymer battery cells in a surprisingly compact body, while the Presto 6A 10,400mAh power bank (RM132.05) has a standard USB-out port, as well as a USB-C in/out port and includes a USB-C cable.
Aukey’s power bank offerings are also rather unique. For example, the PB-T11 Ultra (RM207.96) power bank is a massive 30,000mAh unit, and comes with two USB output ports, a micro USB input port, and a Lightning input port; the pack also comes with freebies including a USB fan, USB LED light, and a carry pouch. The smaller PB-T10 power bank (RM167.55) has a similar port layout, but has a lower battery capacity at 20,000mAh.
These accessories come with 18-24 months of international warranty, which is longer than the usual 6-12 months offered by other popular brands. Check out the official Tronsmart and Aukey brand stores for the full range of products available.
