Amazon Prime Day Highlight: Hot Discounted Accessories from Aukey

Aukey 16W Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

This Synopsis

If you’ve hunted for mobile accessories on Amazon, chances are that you’ve come across and/or used an offering from Aukey. Their sizable store is a result of devices with good value and that garner great reviews. So it makes sense that Aukey would want to go big for Amazon’s annual Prime Day event. So much so that we’re rounding up some of the best deals, with some help via promo codes through our collaboration with the manufacturer.

The Rundown

Aukey’s inventory covers a bunch of different electronic accessories, from chargers to headphones. We’ve reviewed a couple of these on The Synops, and will be for some others in the future, so stay tuned! Without further ado, here’s some particularly notable deals you’ll want to consider for Prime Day.

Latitude Bluetooth Earbud for $19

Aukey Latitude Wireless Earbuds
Affordable wireless earbuds that sport a solid build, water resistance,and aptX wireless audio codec.

Our synopsis of Aukey’s inexpensive Latitude earbuds was a mostly positive assessment. At about $25 retail, it’s apparent that you’re getting an essentially built Bluetooth earbud, but it’s a solid one at that. On the outside, everything is sturdy and the matte black, stealthy finish provides a non-cheap feel despite being plastic.

Its execution also punches above the price, namely the thorough water resistance (IPX4, as well as internal protection via nano-coating), healthy battery life, and aptX wireless audio support. The Latitude earbuds will drop to $19 ($6 off) only on Prime Day (July 16th), from 13:05-19:05 PDT.

Advantages

  • Lightweight and small footprint
  • Attractive finish
  • Reliable wireless connection
  • Decent battery life
  • Notable sound quality for price
  • Inexpensive

Disadvantages

  • Entirely plastic construction
  • Fit could be better
  • Basic ear tip selection (and no foam tips)
  • No vocal feedback for functions
  • Laid-back sound characteristic

SK-S1 16W Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $44

Aukey 16W Bluetooth Wireless Speaker
The SK-S1 is Aukey’s premium and powerful compact Bluetooth speaker, but still not at an expensive price.

The SK-S1 is another Aukey device we looked at recently. Despite being a tad more expensive than a budget Bluetooth speaker, we felt it was still a notable value. What more you get for your money is a premium build and stronger sound, from a dual driver system that outputs 16W of power. We found the audio of this small guy to punch well above its weight.

Otherwise, the SK-S1 functions like a typical Bluetooth speaker. Its 8-hour battery life and 33ft Bluetooth range are decent, and functionality was solid in our testing. The only noteworthy con is the lack of water resistance, which many of the competition have. For the event, the SK-S1 speaker drops to $44 ($16 off). See our synopsis for more details.

Advantages

  • Premium materials and quality build
  • Compact size
  • Easy to use
  • Strong dual 8W drivers and dual passive radiators
  • Great sound quality

Disadvantages

  • Battery life is average
  • Bluetooth range is average
  • Not water resistant
  • Not as full sounding as a 360-degree speaker

Graphite Wireless Qi Charging Pad for $19

Super slim wireless charger with premium and stylish construction.

Aukey attempted to make more out of a Qi wireless charger with the LC-C5. So much so that its design received iF Design and Red Dot Design awards. So what’s so special about it? It’s much slimmer than the competition and built with more premium materials. Specifically, we’re looking at a nice-feeling, soft, matte pad and silver metal surround.

We additionally have current tech, like a USB-C power port, temperature and overcharging safeguards, and wide smartphone compatibility. Aukey’s sale for the LC-C5 goes live on July 19th, from 7:30-13:30 PDT, where we’ll see a $10 drop from the normal $29 to $19.

Advantages

  • Premium construction and materials
  • Thin profile
  • Current USB-C port
  • Overheating/Overcharging protection

Disadvantages

  • Pricey for a wireless charger
  • No fast (10W) wireless charging

20,000 mAh Multi-Port Power Bank for $30

Aukey’s huge battery portable charger is affordable and flexible.

Portable power banks are a dime a dozen, but there’s not many that have as much capacity as Aukey’s PB-N36. This is a beastly pack that holds a whopping 20,000mAh battery and can handle various devices with a layout of dual-USB, Lightning, and microUSB ports. It also sports Aukey’s careful safeguards for over-current/heating/charging protection.

It’s important to note that there’s two variants of this charger, one with standard charging rates and the other with quick charging (QC 3.0) support. The latter will be on sale on July 19th, from 6:30-12:30 PDT, where we’ll see a $12 drop from its retail $42 to $30.

Advantages

  • Huge battery that lasts
  • Variety of outputs
  • Overheating/Overcharging protection
  • Relatively affordable

Disadvantages

  • Need to spend a little more for Quick Charge model
  • Sizable footprint for a portable charger
  • Older MicroUSB instead of USB-C
