[Amazon.ca] RAVPower 65W 4-Port Charging station $59.99

I was fishing around for a charging brick for my new phone. Came across this deal. Looks to be decent. Has a 1m cord instead of plugging directly into the wall which I find very attractive, features two USB Type-C ports and two USB-A ports. Charges phones and mobile computers. Supports 65w charging though a single port. Has a bunch of protection features as well. I double checked the price history and this is the lowest price in Amazon history. All other chargers I was looking at did not have 4 ports and if they did there was no dedicated 65w port, or they were off brands which I've never heard of and still within the same price range.

Original Price: $211.82
Current Price: 59.99
Discount: $151.83 (72%)

Yeah, call me crazy but 72% off a good quality multi purpose charger is a good deal. We're only two months into the year champ, settle down.

How was this ever worth $200+? Just seems fishy to me.

Don't worry, I am sure it will be reported soon... apparently if the item isn't sold by Amazon and have a +1000 rating it can't be listed here, just had a great deal on earbuds deleted, someone reported it for that reason. Wasn't a shill post at all, this one, hmmm... possibly.

As another poster mentioned this "sale price" has been it's list price since January 4th.

Can't speak to value but I do like that the outputs are not at wall socket so it's somewhat unique.

Do you even know what you are looking at? This isn't just a rinky dink phone charger. The GaN properties are worth this price alone.

Does this thing buzz or whine? That's the biggest killer for me with aftermarket chargers.

No they are not. Bought a RavPower 45W USB C charger with "GaN properties" for $20.

bought the Ravpower GaN 90W 2x USB-C port for $37 2 months ago, I take that as my new watt/price metric to determine if it's a good deal or not.
Right now it is at $45 for 90W, so 2W/$1 which blows this one (1.08W/$1) away and I don't care for those USB-A ports as its just gonna take power away from the other ports.

Amazon USA lists it for $59 USD as their regular price then $43 after discount and coupon. Seems Amazon Canada is using Canadian Tire marketing strategy of grossly inflating the regular price.

Yeah, sure. You can buy 45w chargers with GaN for fairly cheap; but that's not what this is. This is essentially a charger that can simultaneously charge multiple devices; with a long lead cord. A super fancy pants charging brick coupled with a compact extension cord. 200 bucks seems ludicrous, but at this price it makes sense.

Not worth! Not a good price. You can get 65w GaN chargers around 30 bucks.

Buddy, if you like it and want it - go for it! We are not discussing if YOU should or not. We are sharing the feeling that it's not worth it for people who don't need it :D You know "Pulled the trigger, now have to figure out where to use it"-kind-of-deal.

I purchased it however returning probabably may I suggest Baseus BS-S915 as it's cheaper at $39, smaller and PD3.0 will super fast charge my S20 where this won't. It doesn't have a cord or extra USB A port however think it may be a better deal

Just an FYI, all these rav chargers work great...but the foldable prongs suck. If you're using your phone while it's plugged in, the power brick will easily fall outta the wall
