Everything made in China is made to the buyers specification... Genpowers (Hyundai Chinese TAT) is low rate, cheap generic. People should look at the "Cobra" brand they are actually designed by a UK company (Hentons) not generic Chinese factory fodder. Also multi award winning garden machinery unlike these things.
Comment was deleted Think you missed my point mate I Was replying to the other chap who said it was Chinese tat I was implying everything electronic has it origins of manufacture in China ... Like I said I have one and think it's great Instead of me doing research ...perhaps a re read before wading into people ;)
Just had a quick go on mine seems fine and if careful with the edge guard you can avoid concrete steps etc.
This or a Manscape?
Wanted to go for this but none in stock near me 😞
Just collected the strimmer very nice bit of kit works great
If it was a spool would 100% buy . but blades are just not versatile enough imo ( Even slightly catching say my fence post normally breaks it for me ) Still an absolute bargain and hot if your a fan of blades Did you add it to your basket ? ( Free battery charger kit with selected Einhell tools, add product 257481. Discount applied at basket )
I have Belkin and aukey products. There's little difference in perceived quality, and Aukey wins
Can’t lie I’d get a Belkin more reputable brand.
Aukey one posted above nulls this deal
This may be an alternative at under £7. The brand is decent, I have quite a few Aukey products https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/aukey-pa-y25-20w-power-deliver-usb-c-mini-charger-ps698-delivered-at-mymemory-3941225
Not that makes a difference but Pixel 6 charges at slightly more than 20w this one provided. Also, I can't see any info this is a PPS charger. To get the max charge speed for your pixel you need a PPS charger delivering more than 20w. I think with this charger, you get 15 or 18w max when you charge your phone.

Getting a bit lower price again for this particular model. Use code HMMT32 : Lossless Fidelity The powerful 12mm / 0.36” speaker drivers deliver high-fidelity audio with deeper bass…
I also have these. I find them extremely annoying. The touch sensitivity is too much. It auto stops if you take one off to scratch your ear. I continually find my self having to reset and re-pair. Connectivity isn't the best either when in operation. The only good thing is they are a secure fit.
Battery lasts years if they are so terrible that you never use them
Terrible earphones. Had them, touch sensitive controls are just horrible, uncomfortable after few hours. Only good thing about it, its their battery life
Yes it'll work at upto 15w for the older chargers from other brands But for super fast charging you'll need the Oppo, oneplus or realme bricks.
Seller's description also says "The cable is compatible with all devices with a USB-C connector, such as the HTC 10, Google Pixel and 2017 Galaxy A range to name but a few". Personally I don't know how accurate that is. https://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=153845250638&category=123422&pm=1&ds=0&t=1600448301000&ver=0&cspheader=1
And just to add this cable will only be good for fast chargers on oppo, oneplus and realme. I've tested them upto 65W.
Thank you and you are absolutely right. I have added " Item description from the seller" in the main description above to avoid confusion and misgiving in some people's minds (highfive)
It'll be a standard 3A cable
Charger: Powering Laptops, Smartphones and Other Electric Devices
Chargers aren’t exciting, but underrate them at your peril. How often have you been stuck with a phone on one bar, with no way to replenish its charge? Has your laptop ever gone dead in the middle of a crucial document? Almost everyone relies on chargers to keep their devices going, and we consistently need to purchase replacement chargers for the phones, computers and gaming consoles we use.
This buyer’s guide introduces some of the most important types of chargers and will help you find the best deal when looking for the items you require.
Chargers: Battery, Wireless, USB
Chargers have been around as long as batteries have existed, but have become doubly important in everyday life since we started to use portable computers and mobile phones in large numbers.
Before the 1980s, computers and phones tended to run purely on AC mains current, with direct connections to their electricity supply. However, with the rise of laptops, tablets and mobile phones, this kind of power supply would no longer suffice. Instead, manufacturers began supplying AC chargers with their products – compact devices that could convert mains electricity into current to power the batteries in their devices.
In the past 10 years, standard chargers have become smaller and have been joined by smarter devices with the ability to charge various types of battery. At the same time, power banks have become popular, offering a jolt of charge that can be carried in handbags or pockets if required.
What hasn’t changed is that we rely on chargers to keep our communications and gaming devices going, and that looks likely to remain true for the foreseeable future.
How Do Chargers Work?
Briefly put, chargers turn mains electricity into a form of current that is appropriate for certain types of battery.
Most low-end chargers work on a continuous basis. They supply a certain level of charge constantly until the charger is unplugged or switched off. They often charge fairly quickly, but run the risk of over (or under) charging the devices they are connected to.
As you go up the price scale, you’ll find chargers with more subtlety. These chargers tend to use slower, more tightly controlled currents and feature feedback loops and sensors that precisely calibrate the level of charge they deliver. It all helps to ensure that fragile batteries receive optimal charging levels and avoid the damage caused by overcharging.
When charging goes wrong, the consequences can be deadly. For instance, there have been cases of mobile phones combusting when their batteries become superheated due to overcharging (although simple device failure is a more common issue).
This makes it really important to find a charger that is suited to the device you need to charge. You won’t be doing your laptop or smartphone any favours if you choose a cheaper charger that leads to long-term damage.
Looking at the Various Types of Charger
When you come to pick a charger, make sure you choose the right one for the job. Here are the major varieties available from HotUKDeals merchants:
Battery chargers – Rechargeable batteries can be found in many wireless devices. Perhaps most importantly, they are a key component of automobiles (hands up if you’ve left your headlights on at night and found your battery has been exhausted overnight). This makes it essential for all car owners to have a battery charger in their shed or boot. A 10-amp charger will generally be sufficient for most standard car batteries, and try to find a microprocessor controlled smart charger as well. There are many cheaper options on the market, but your car battery will thank you if you go for a higher-end device. You might want to think about choosing a waterproof charger as well – you never know when you could break down in inhospitable conditions.
Laptop chargers – Almost all laptops use rechargeable batteries, allowing them to be used wirelessly, wherever you need to get some work done. The precise charger required will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model – so always pick one that is certified as compatible with your computer. Universal chargers are also available (but double check that your manufacturer is listed in the specifications, as sometimes major laptop makers are excluded). These chargers could be extra-useful if you own or manage a range of laptops, and they tend to come with a selection of connectors as well.
Smartphone chargers – Again, all mobile phones need to have their batteries topped up regularly, but there’s 'no one size fits all' charging solution. While phones usually come with a charger included, it’s often a good idea to buy an additional charger when you purchase your phone, just to be on the safe side. You might also want to add a USB charger to your accessories collection. These handy devices let you use the charge on your laptop as a power source for smartphones.
iPhone Lightning Chargers – Having said that mobile phone users should think about getting a USB charger, this has to be qualified for Apple fans. Apple’s iPhones don’t use standard USB connections. Instead, you’ll need to get hold of a charger that uses the Lightning connector system, and specialist adapters are available to do the job.
Wireless chargers – In the past, battery chargers always involved cumbersome cables that needed to be wound around the plug when the charger wasn’t in use. However, that’s no longer the rule. Nowadays, you can pick up convenient wireless chargers for smartphones and other digital devices. However, most of these devices are only partially wireless. They still generally need to connect to the mains socket in some way. Where they do away with wires is the connection between the charger and the phone being charged. It’s not a total liberation from wires, but it’s a start. You should also be aware that wireless chargers tend to be slightly slower than conventional forms (although that’s really not such a big problem if you are charging overnight, like many of us do).

Tips for Using Chargers Safely
Picking and using the right charger can make or break your laptop or phone. That’s not an exaggeration. When you overcharge any device, it can lower its expected lifetime and pose a fire hazard, so try to avoid it all costs. Here are a few tips to help you make the right decision:
Check the device’s capacity. Every battery has a capacity measured in mAh. This will tend to increase with the size of the device, meaning that less powerful chargers will struggle to charge up Kindles or laptops. Make sure your charger’s capacity matches that of the device being charged.
Consider the weight. Chargers are meant to be portable. Go for models that won’t weigh you down unnecessarily (or think about combining a heavy duty charger with something more stripped down that you can take when you are out and about).
Outdoor solar chargers can be a great option if you need to take devices into the wilderness or just have a desire to make your digital life more sustainable, but they tend to be slightly slower than conventional models.
Be flexible with multiple charging. Not all chargers are designed to handle one device at a time. If you have many devices to keep topped up, go for a charger with multiple ports and enough juice to handle various batteries.
Think about opting for a battery pack. You don’t always need to rely on charging for long periods. Instead, you can find battery packs or power banks that contain large amounts of charge on small devices. They could be the ideal alternative (or supplement) to a mobile phone charger.

Thank you, I have bought one now. Amazing to have this in the bag for phone and Chromebook. (highfive)
I have the same Chromebook and just charged it using this Samsung 45W charger. Works fine and chargers in the same time as the original Acer charger.
I have an elitebook g6 from work and this samsung does charge it but battery has to be reset (some issue that shows laptop as charging even after cable pulled out) - so not using this charger for it. I also have a hp pavilion 14" 2021 and it works totally fine with it (no issues like the elitebook) I got it to charge s21 ultra and the hp pavilion so does the job for me (y) If your hp elitebook is newer than the g6 should hopefully be ok (as long as PD is supported) - hope that helps
Cheers Just received mine Date of manufacture: 2022-05-13 13 days from the factory in Vietnam to my house - super fast charging and super fast shipping (lol)
Managed to charge my S22 ultra from 18% to 79% in 30 minutes today with my Spigen 45w gan charger. Totally worth it for this timeframe
They do actively advertise this :) Looks like a solid bedside charger although does anyone know if the Apple Watch part would have enough room to accomodate a USB-C to USB-A converter?
Won't work with Samsung watch. Otherwise seem decent deal for the apple peoples.
Not bad... most are not fans of wireless charging though Model Number: A2598 + A2908 Power 3 Devices At Once Enjoy 7.5W max charging for iPhones, 10W max charging for Android phones, and 5W max charging for AirPods.
Off the top of my head I've got a £20 drone with a 720p camera they described as 1080p. I've had several woodworking router bits with profiles very different to the quoted measurements and set of 3 where one had a chipped carbide blade. Also cork coasters because the thickness was different. Oh and a pair of Vernier calipers with a 0.01mm resolution when a product with a 0.001mm resolution was pictured. Essentially if the product doesn't match the description/photo you are golden. If the cost to return (to China) which you refuse to pay upfront is such that they don't want the item back, after to knock back their offers of (predictably) £2 off, 50% off, the final offer will be "we refund you and there is no need to return the item"
Ordered at 13:30 on 24th Arrived at 11:30 on 25th Sounds like I won't have my batteries charged as soon as that but still a thumbs up from me
I don't understand all these brand boys. I have gear from different makes because some tools are better from different ranges...if I can get a brushless DeWalt multitool for the same price as a brushed Makita then I'll go with DeWalt. The entry level Makita combis aren't all that good for cutting holes as I have also learnt. I wouldn't say worst on the market
(poo) -kita honestly gotta be the worst tool brand on the market. My boss only buys this (poo) and he must replace a tool or battery once every 6 months due to it failing. Only today his multi-tool burned out :o He purchased a drill a month ago and it genuinely set on fire on first use trying to drill a hole through a joist with a 20mm hole cutter.. Hes had 18v hammer drills within 5 years and all 4 failed due to the switch on the side falling off when turning it anticlockwise to select drilling without hammer. This brand is probably the worst on the market

Wow, what a bargain. I always said the cables are overpriced for what they are. What a bargain. Tine will tell if they are good. I usually buy branded cables, chargers and power banks. I took a risk with the INIU. So far, my best cable is 100w Fasgear, followed by Nimaso 60w and 100w. But the Nimaso does not support video. There is a Ugreen 65w posted here, that will work with laptops too. In the comments on that deal, you'll see a comment for a iSmart/Ravpower 65w, for £15, that's even a better deal if you don't need PPS. Amazon basic 63w is a good deal at about £20 as well. If you don't need it for a laptop, you can go with Samsung 25w, £8.50, deal posted here, Samsung with 2 x usb ports 35w for £13.50, or Samsung 45w for about £20. Edit: this is the Ravpower and I think is a stunning price for what it is.
Had a mooch around - this also looks very good for the price point from UGREEN. Perhaps one for the birthday list :) https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B088CZ8CYG/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_DNEAKYTMV8V21GC3KDNV?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Not sure about the Xiaomi and fast charging as not had one but they def make a difference with the Pixel jumping from a dead phone to 80% in about 30mins on the black charger is pretty handy with two teenagers in the house that can't/don't remember to charge their phones - or playing on a dead switch that again they can't remember to charge (confused) That little black one was all I took last time I went away, was charging phone, laptop, camera, power bank etc all off it - had to use a little converter for a couple bits to go USB-C to Micro USB but I just made sure it all worked before I went
Thanks very much - It's a shame my phone one Xiaomi is still USB A - USB C, but I do think the changes are coming slowly but surely. I think I may get a USB C only plug at some point, if anything just to get the speed of charge on my phone, the Xiaomi one says it's 33W, but numerous people have never got even close to that number.
I've got these two (use with these cables, as my post above).. either of these can charge my HP laptop, chromebook, various google pixels and nintendo switches plus my microsoft surface (tho that needs a little pig tail converter and only on the 65w one) A lot easier than hauling a full charger for a laptop and I can charge my phone off it also https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08CDDSVN4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 and https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08PDGQSJB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Personally I have recently got Poco F3 but it has real problems with signal drop out on 4g. Updated to latest firmware still an issue fixed slightly but still present. I had the Mii fan edition 8Gb redmi note 10 pro and was a joy to use for a year and could not faulty it. If I could get it again I'd flog F3 on eBay
I came from a Pixel 3a to this, and I really miss the smaller size and camera quality of the pixel. The Samsung is great; has a fantastic screen and over 2days battery for me. But the camera isn't great compared to any old pixel phone. Its also very thick and heavy.
Shutter speed on mine is dreadful. I really miss my p40 lite!
Cheers I ordered 2 weeks ago at £45. So ordered another and will send this back as the other one Who ruffled your feathers.
This only does max 45W per port so will struggle charging most USB-C laptops. Better to stretch a bit to this instead (proper charger and already comes with International UK/EU adaptors): https://www.amazon.co.uk/MINIX-Universal-Charging-Delivery-Technology-Black/dp/B08CB22NT3/ref=sr_1_17?crid=1AMZP78B5U92F&keywords=minix&qid=1653301076&sprefix=minix,aps,72&sr=8-17 Minix are top quality and won't have the compatibility issue of cheaper makes like Anker/Ugreen etc... This was down to £46 last month in lightning deal, so maybe worth waiting, Went down to £42 on Prime day last year.
Samsungs as predatory as apple. Also I'm a bit stuck as I wanted to treat myself and that meant Samsung products... My heads down in shame!.
I think this is a better charger for extra £10 UGREEN 65W USB C Charger Plug 2-Port GaN Type C Fast Wall Power Adapter Compatible with Macbook Pro/Air, iPhone 13, iPad Air/Mini 6, Galaxy S22/S21, Pixel 6, Dell XPS, Asus Acer Laptop etc https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08CDDSVN4
Anyone found a decent GaN 140w charger for he 2021 macbook 16
Why does the remind me of a spaceship from Star Trek or something...
Bit large for a GaN charger I've got the Kuulaa one that is much smaller
These spent a long time hovering around the £17-18 mark. Unless you need one right now, I'd wait and see if it goes down again https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/product/B087S3HZ3P
i have slightly older version of these I think. When connected to my phone they show a rough battery scale in the notification bar thing at the top (Android). Like really rough as opposed to an actual percentage: full, 2/3, 1/3 sort of scale. When the battery gets low you get 3 or 4 voice prompts maybe 3 or 4 mins apart before it shuts off. Weirdly the right one always dies before the left in mine...
Anybody know how to check battery percentage on these? Other ones I have have light indicators to show power level. Can’t seem to find on thes
Been on the hunt for in-ear wireless headphones and call capacity for ages. Gutted I missed out ;(
Mine arrived yesterday. Great sound quality for the price and they look premium.
This is nonsense nowadays. It has been stated by manufacturers like Xiaomi who have 200w charging in 8 mins that whether it's 20w or 200w the degradation after 2 years is the same. May have been true in the past but technology has moved on.
5V @ 2A equates to 10W which technically is fast charging (at least compared to the USB standards and some Qi charging pads) but even 18W charging is considered relatively slow nowadays. The micro USB lead is a giveaway too - this is a fast charger from a bygone era. My advice is to buy chargers that support USB PD protocol as that's likely the future and used by Apple and Google on their phones.
I only said why is this called fast charger, I was not debating if slow charge is better than fast charge or the other way around. This is a slow charger, listed as fast charger. Not OP's fault, this is the site listing.
