If your new Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P has just arrived, or is about to arrive, the first thing you’re probably going to need are a few extra USB-C cables so you can charge your Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P at work, in the car, or on the nightstand.
With the change to USB C, most microUSB cables are now obsolete (insofar as Nexus devices are concerned), and it’s rather unsurprising that we sold all the ones we had fairly quickly. Selling things far cheaper than the Google Store might have something to do with it …
Well, good news everyone! The USB-C cables are back in stock on the Ausdroid Shop, ready for y’all to snap up.
USB 2.0 to USB-C Cable – 1.0m – Black and White
- Reversible Type C connector (there’s no wrong way to plug it into a port).
- Reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
- Charge your phone from a USB power source including car chargers, wall plugs, power banks and even other laptops.
- Supports scalable power charging
MicroUSB to USB-C adaptor
If you’ve got a MicroUSB charger that you can’t bear to give up (like my one I’ve run through the dashboard of the car), one of these adaptor cables will let you use your favourite charger with your new Nexus phone.
We received a new shipment of these today, and they sell fast. Don’t miss out.
Quick Chargers for the car and office
- If you haven’t got a Quick Charger yet, now’s a good time; we’ve got them for the car and for the home/office.
- The Nexus 5X / Nexus 6P don’t support Quick Charge, but these chargers do provide a lot of juice to the new Nexus phones, charging them pretty damned fast.
You can grab the AUKey Dual USB Turbo Car Charger for $36.95, and my personal favourite, the AUKey 5-port USB Wall Charger for $57.95. If you’re a true gadgeteer, the latter is a great investment, putting out 4 x 2.4A ports and one QC 2.0 port.
These have both been really popular with new Nexus owners, and they sell quick.
Something fun to do? Grab some Cardboard
If you love showing off technology to others, what better way to do it (and look silly, too!) than with a Google I/O 2015 Cardboard VR headset. These too are selling like mad, and they’re a great way to make your family and friends sea-sick. Besides that, they’re good fun.
