Aukey’s mini charger, the Omnia 20W PD, isn’t much bigger than the 5W charger that used to be included with iPhones. Back in September of last year, we listed it as a deal at $12 with a CNET-exclusive coupon on Amazon, but now it’s $9.55 with an instant 25% coupon (just remember to check the box before checking out). By comparison, Apple’s 20W power adapter costs $18.

While the Aukey Omnia 20W PD is designed to be able to charge iPad Pro models and the new iPad Air, both of which feature USB-C charging, you’ll need a USB-C-to-Lightning cable to quick-charge iPhones and iPads with Lightning ports. The iPhone 11 Pro models and all the new iPhone 12 models include a USB-C-to-Lightning cable.

A USB-C-to-USB-C cable is required to quick-charge the iPad Pro and new iPad Air, as well as Android smartphones and tablets (it supports Quick Charge 2.0 for Android devices). PD stands for USB Power Delivery, which is the current gold standard for chargers.

Anker’s 18W Nano USB-C PD charger is on sale for about $15. It’s been out a while and is similar in size. Meanwhile, you can snag Aukey’s 18W USB-C model for a mere $7.79.
