Providing wireless music streaming, unbeatable battery life and pleasurable sound, the new Galaxy S20 family as well as the Samsung Galaxy Buds were unveiled. This rival of Apple’s all-winning AirPods could be the ideal choice for Samsung phone owners. In a few markets, Samsung is offering free Galaxy Bud + with Galaxy S20 Plus or S20 Ultra pre-order. If you go for the regular S20 or skip the deal, the Galaxy Buds + are still worth considering and offer a big upgrade compared to the basic USB-C AKG headphones included in the box.

Fiora Wireless Car Charger

The Fiora is a fully adjustable car mount to hold your Galaxy S20 or S20 Plus while driving though the S20 Ultra can be a bit bigger and heavier. It supports Kiwi wireless charging up to 15W and it comes with a Quick Charge 3.0 adapter that can be plugged into your car socket and connected to a USB-to-USB cable to connect to it. The great feature is the automatically closed arms that gently close to keep your phone in place. Touch the buttons on either side of the mount light when plugged in and powered up and turn blue when your phone is wirelessly charged. A simple tap on both buttons opens the arms so you can move your phone. Remember the power of the mount is needed, so you’ll want to start the car before your phone enters the standard mount ships with a standard dashboard or window suction cup, a CD player mount and an air vent clip.

Cluvax USB-C Fast Charger Kit

Charge your S-20 up to four times faster with the Cluvix USB Quick Charger Kit – sitting at home or in your car. The company promises to charge from zero to 55% within 30 minutes. It is recognized for supporting the output of 5V-3A, 9V-2A and 12v-1.5A when it automatically identifies which device you own for proper charging speed. The car charger sports a compact design and is compatible with multiple voltages with 100- to 240-volt 50 / 60HZ input for international travel. It comes with a powerful 3.3-foot USB-C power cord.

Spigen camera lens screen protector

While it’s not uncommon for mobile phone owners to protect their body screens and screen protectors, Spigen also provides a way to protect the camera lenses of your Galaxy S20 device so that your shots are always at their best. The camera lens protectors come in a two-pack of premium tempered glass and are designed for an unspoken flat description without any raised bezels. An extra anti-fingerprint coating helps keep the lens smog-free. This is consistent with all Spezian cases.

Anchor Powerline II only

It is always easy to supply an extra or two of its extras, but not all wires are made equal. The Anchor Powerline II is a three-foot USB-C to USB-C cable that can deliver power up to 100 W, supports speeds up to 10 Gbps for data transfer, and is USB-IF certified for protection. It should cover all your charging and data transfer requirements and it comes with a lifetime warranty on the anchor, so if something goes wrong you can get a replacement cable hassle-free.

Samsung 45W wall charger

Whichever S20 model you go for, you will find 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 gives maximum charging speed by your S20 Ultra, gives output up to 45W and it comes with USB-C to USB-C cable which can handle up to 45W. But before you buy it consider that your S20 Ultra will only charge at maximum speed when the battery is near empty and it slows down as soon as the battery is full. Normally, we would offer a cheap fast charger, but Samsung needs PPS (programmable power supply) support, which most chargers do not have. If you are determined to achieve top speed of S20 Ultra, this is the charger you need. But it will not be like the price for most people.

Anyone suffering from battery anxiety will love this portable charger as it has an impressive 20,000 mAh capacity.

This means it will charge the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus at maximum speeds, but it also supports the somewhat obscure PPS (programmable power supply) standard, which means it can also charge the S20 Ultra at full speed. It can handle charging two devices at once and it also supports pass-through charging, so you can charge it via USB-C port and charge another device from USB port at the same time.
