Every day, the average American wastes upwards of 90 minutes waiting for their devices to charge. If that sounds like a made-up fact, well, that’s because it is. Nobody’s collecting that data.

Still, most of us do spend a good deal more time than we should waiting for our phones (or Bluetooth headphones) to charge up. Think of the things you could accomplish if you didn’t have to wait! Are you thinking of them? It’s so many things, right?

A fast charger can re-juice your mobile devices in much less time than the stock chargers they came with, and you don’t need to spend a ton to get one, either. LETSCOM’s 20W USB C charger costs $7.99 with a digital coupon, less than half of what Apple charges for its 20W USB C charger.

Just how fast is this charger? Well, it can bring a dead iPhone 12 back to more than 50% charge in a half hour, which is a pretty big deal. That means it’s also good enough to charge just about any other type of phone you could have (provided they use USB C), as well as power-hungry iPad Pros and Nintendo Switches.

It also claims to be powerful enough to charge a MacBook Pro, but I’m not sure I buy that; considering said MacBook comes with a 96W charger, you’re more likely to get a slow trickle of power if you plug it in here, especially if you’re using it while it charges. Still, considering how small this power brick is, $7.99 is a hell of a deal.
