Update: Prime Day 2021 is done and dusted, so the deals below are no longer valid. Check out our ZDNet Recommends hub for a better look at the latest deals available — including roundups of the best products for businesses and professionals.
Who doesn’t like a good deal? I’m all for saving money, so for me,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 2021 — tens of thousands — and distilled them down into a handful of the best.
Deals come and go over the two days, and I’ll be updating this post with fresh deals, so 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).
This is a 10W wireless charger with built-in 256GB of storage to allow you to backup your photos and other data.

At 50% off, this is a great deal, and offers peace of mind in the event of your phone being lost, stolen, or broken.
Don’t need that much backup space? There are 64GB and 128GB versions also available, but the 128GB is only a dollar cheaper than the 256GB version.
