Best Prime Day deals 2020: Cables, adaptors, chargers, and hubs
Who doesn’t like a good deal? I’m all for saving money, so for me, Amazon Prime Day is a good time to pick up those essentials (or bits of kit you need to boost productivity) while at the same spending less. And with more and more people now working and learning from home, it seems that there are never enough cables, chargers, adapter, and hubs to go around.
With that in mind, I’ve trawled through the unbelievable number of deals that are available over Prime Day 2020 — tens of thousands! — and distilled them down into a handful of the best.
Deals come and go over the Tuesday, Oct. 13 to Wednesday, Oct. 14 that Amazon Prime Day 2020 runs over (eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that’s two days), so I’ll be updating this post with fresh deals. Keep checking back.
Also, if you find a good deal I’ve missed, feel free to drop me a note (a Twitter DM probably gets the quickest response).
