17% discount on its 18W USB-C PD Charger, down from an already reasonable £10.79 to just £8.99.
Apple has traditionally been a Scrooge with the chargers it includes in the box with its iPhones. Even the latest
iPhone 11 still ships with a puny 5W charger. Luckily, the
iPhone 11 Pro at last comes with a proper 18W charger.
So if you own an iPhone 11 or model previous to this, here’s an excellent way to buy a trustworthy 18W charger to power-up your device much faster.
Apple’s own 18W charger costs a whopping £29.

15% off the standard price.
There are USB-C to USB-C cables (which can handle charging at up to 60W) from 1m to 2m, at
offers of up to 20% off. The 1m USB-C to USB-C cable costs £5.95 (15% off) and the 2m version is 20% off at £6.39.

Ugreen’s biggest discount is 31% off its 4-port USB hub, although this is still USB-A only, not USB-C. It’s
