This fully adjustable car mount is ideal for holding your Galaxy S20 or S20 Plus while you drive (but the S20 Ultra might be a bit too big and heavy). It supports Qi wireless charging at up to 15W and it comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter that can plug into the socket in your car and a USB-A to USB-C cable to connect it with. The coolest feature is the automatically closing arms which slide gently shut to hold your phone in place.
There are touch buttons on either side of the mount that light up green when it 8217;s plugged in and powered, and then turn blue when it 8217;s wirelessly charging your phone. A simple tap on either button opens the arms so you can remove your phone. Keep in mind that the mount needs power, so you 8217;ll want to start the car before putting your phone in, but it seems to retain enough charge to open the arms for a while after you 8217;ve turned the engine off. The mount ships with a standard dashboard or window suction cup, a CD player mount, and an air vent clip, so you can position it wherever you like.
It 8217;s always handy to have a spare cable or two, but not all cables are created equal. The Powerline II from Anker is a 3-foot USB-C to USB-C cable that can deliver up to 100W of power, supports speeds of up to 10Gbps for data transfer, and is USB-IF certified for safety. This should cover all your charging and data transfer needs and it comes with Anker 8217;s lifetime warranty, so you can get a replacement cable hassle-free if anything goes wrong with this one.
Whichever S20 model you go for, you 8217;ll get a 25W Samsung charger and cable in the box and it can charge your S20 or S20 Plus at top speed. However, if you bought the S20 Ultra you can charge a bit faster with the right kit. This charger offers the top charging speed your S20 Ultra allows, outputting up to 45W, and it comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable that can handle up to 45W. But before you buy it, consider that your S20 Ultra will only actually charge at the maximum speed when the battery is near empty and that it will slow down as the battery fills.
From zero to 100%, this charger will be a few minutes faster than the one that came in the box 8212; we 8217;re talking about around 10 minutes difference. But for the way most people charge (plugging in long before the battery is empty) the difference in speed is going to be negligible. Usually, we would recommend a cheaper fast charger, but Samsung requires PPS (Programmable Power Supply) support and most chargers don 8217;t have it. If you 8217;re determined to have the top speed for the S20 Ultra, then this is the charger you need. However, it 8217;s not going to be worth the price for most people, so this is a recommendation with some major caveats.
Anyone who suffers from battery anxiety will love this portable charger because it has a whopping 20,000mAh capacity. The USB-C port here supports the Power Delivery standard and can deliver up to 45W and there 8217;s also a USB-A port that can put out up to 18W. That means it will charge the Galaxy S20 and the S20 Plus at maximum speed, but it also supports the slightly more obscure PPS (Programmable Power Supply) standard, which means it can charge the S20 Ultra at full speed, too. It can handle charging two devices at once, and it supports pass-through charging as well, so you can charge it via the USB-C port and charge another device from the USB-A port simultaneously.
With 128GB of storage as standard, you get a decent amount of space whichever S20 you go for, but they all support expansion by up to 1TB via MicroSD card. Our recommended card here will double your storage, adding another 128GB and it 8217;s rated A2 for app performance, meaning it supports random read input-output access per second (IOPS) of 4,000 and write IOPS of 2,000. This makes it ideal for quickly opening apps and processing tasks. It also offers up to 160MB/s read speeds and up to 90MB/s write speeds. SanDisk offers this card at other sizes, including 256GB, 512GB, and even 1TB. Whichever capacity you decide on, it comes with a handy adapter for plugging in and transferring to and from your PC or laptop.
