Black Friday 2023 is in full swing as we barrel towards the end of the year with enough deals to make your head spin. Thankfully, a lot of these deals started early this year, so chances are you already grabbed a new phone or tablet. 

However, maybe you forgot to grab a case or need a new set of headphones to pair with your new devices, but you already blew past your budget. The team here at Android Central put our collective heads together to find some of the best Black Friday deals for under $50. 

Some of these are simply incredible, and we aren't sure whether they'll be available through the weekend. Whether you're on the fence about getting a new charger or just want to see what's out there, we've got you covered.

Our favorite Black Friday deals under $50

Outside of a few oddballs, pretty much any new phone or tablet has ditched the headphone jack for good. Some companies include an adapter in the box, but at just $8, the UGREEN USB-C to 3.5mm Adapter is cheap enough to grab just to have an extra one.
