When buying electronics product reputation is important. We all want to get the performance we expect. And to keep our expensive devices safe from harm. To that end I keep track of the best selling USB-C chargers on Amazon. These tend to be well reviewed and liked products. Which work for most people and their devices. It also shows us what kind of USB-C chargers others are using. And identifies hot, new products available.

Occasionally a good deal will bump a product into the top five. But was usually in the top ten before that. Anker, AUKEY, and RAVPower can also see new products hitting the top sellers list. Thanks to their brand reputation and marketing. And especially if given a special, introductory price. But less known brands have to earn consumer respect to make this.
