The Yi dual-port USB car charger drops to just $4.59 when you use the code YI459CAR during checkout at Amazon. This car charger was selling for as much as $13 until August, which is when it dropped to its current price of $9. Today's drop is a new low price and the best one we've seen.

One port has Quick Charge 3.0, which means a super fast charge if you have a smartphone that is compatible. The whole thing has an aluminum finish and is very lightweight. Compatible with any device that charges via USB and has built-in safeguards.

Not only does this car charger have two USB ports, but one of the ports has Quick Charge 3.0 tech. If you have a device that's compatible with QC 3.0, you'll be able to charge it super fast when plugged into that port. Of course, even if you don't, you'll still get recharge speeds as fast as possible for your device. Both ports are universally compatible with anything that's USB powered, including both Android and Apple smartphones. Charge two devices simultaneously so you can get wherever you're going with a full battery.

The design includes a premium aluminum finish. It is moderately sized and super lightweight so it's easy to travel with. The built-in safeguards protect your devices from over-heating, over charging, excessive current, and other potentially dangerous things like that.

The car charger comes with a one-year warranty, and users give it 4.1 stars out of 5 based on 50 reviews.

Need some other inexpensive charging options? Seneo's wireless charging stand is compatible with any Qi-enabled device, and right now it's on sale for less than $9. Without the code at that link it sells for $14, so you're saving a nice chunk on that one. If you're looking for something more portable, you can grab Anker's PowerCore Slim 5000mAh portable power bank while it's down to $16. That's almost half off what it normally sells for. In a similar vein, you could get a set of four rechargeable AA batteries on sale for $6 right now.
