With Christmas around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to do two posts on the Amazon best selling cell phones and cell phone accessories. Keep in mind that this top 10 list is a moving target as Amazon updates the list hourly. That being said, this is a snapshot of the top 10 bestsellers as of November 12, 2010 (7:30 a.m.).
I was pleasantly surprised to see that most of the top 10 accessories are inexpensive. Only one item is over $50 and two items could potentially cost more than $30, but the the rest of the items you can purchase for $20 or less.
Without further adieu, here’s the first 5 cell phone accessories that made the the top 10 best seller list on Amazon.com in November, 2010 (remember this is just a snapshot in time).
Amazon Best Selling Cell Phone Accessory #1
The number one spot is occupied by the 5-Pack Premium Reusable LCD Screen Protector with Lint Cleaning Cloth for Apple iPhone 3G, 8GB, 16GB. This product will cost a whopping $1.00.
According to one reviewer, D. Lin, the Amazon purchased screen protectors worked better than the $15 package purchased from the Apple store. Read more Apple iPhone screen protector reviews here.
Amazon Best Selling Cell Phone Accessory #2
Number two is the Motorola P5 13 vehicle power adapter. You can purchase one of these for $4.55. They originally listed at $29.99. It has the micro USB rapid rate charger. Several reviewers commented that it works perfectly with their Droid and it also is much cheaper than the power adapters sold by Verizon.

Amazon Best Selling Cell Phone Accessory #3
The third item on the top 10 is the OtterBox Defender Case for iPhone 3G, 3G S. The prices vary for this product. As of this writing a refurbished OttorBox case goes for $9.99. There are also used ones for $18.49. That’s a great bargain considering the original list price was $49.99.
Out of over 300 customer reviews, 177 gave the OtterBox Defender case five stars and 70 gave it four stars. That’s a pretty good ratio. Check out what customers have to say if you’re thinking of purchasing one (be prepared, there are over 1,400 reviews). With the majority of the views reviews positive, one reviewer gave sage advice. D. Lin says, “One tip for installation on any of these protectors. Do it in the bathroom with the shower running. It takes all the dust out of the air, and you’ll have a installation without dust under the screen.”
Amazon Best Selling Cell Phone Accessory #4
Number four on the list is the Otterbox Defender Series Case for Apple iPhone 4G. At just under $30, you can save a little over 20% of the list price of $49.99. Before taking the price as gospel, read the Amazon fine print. “Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your shopping cart.” You’ll find this wording when you click on the “See price in cart” link.
See what folks are saying about the product.
Amazon Best Selling Cell Phone Accessory #5
The fifth item of the top ten is yet another inexpensive product. The invisible masque screen protector for iPhone 4 4G costs $7.95. It looks to me that folks are looking to protect their high-priced investments. After all, if you already spent money purchasing the iPhone, you might as well take care of it. Aside from the practicality of the product, it does make a great stocking stuffer.
Out of 285 customer reviews, 170 give this product 5 stars while 38 give it 4 stars. Check out the rest of the reviews for this product.
While the top five best-sellers are relatively inexpensive, with the exception of one product, you’ll find similar prices for top selling products on the bottom half of the top 10 Amazon cell phone/cell phone accessories best seller list.
