'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
This thing is so tiny, it's hard to believe that it's a charger.
The new Aukey Omnia Mini 20W PD is unbelievably small. It's a cube a little more than an inch square, packs a single USB-C power capable of outputting 20W of power. The port is compatible with both Power Delivery 3.0 and Quick Charge 2.0 standards, so you get the best of both worlds in a single package.

From the safety side of things, the Omnia Mini 20W PD features everything you'd expect from a quality charger -- overcharge protection, input and output overvoltage protection, and temperature control.
The size and power output of this charger would make it the perfect companion for the upcoming iPhone 12, which, if the rumors are true, won't ship with a charger at all. It's also a great charger for anything else that's happy to be powered from a 20W PD or QC charger.
And the size makes it perfect for travelers -- just don't lose it!
The MSRP of the Aukey Omnia Mini 20W PD is $19.99, but if you head over to here and sign up to be notified when it's released, you'll get a 35% discount.
