Batteries in your mobile devices are still disappointing, but at least the technology in chargers continues to advance rapidly so you can quickly charge your gear when you find an outlet. Anker’s new GaNPrime chargers now promise up to 150W of power from a relatively small pack, giving you enough power to charge multiple devices at faster speeds.
Anker announced last week that it has teamed up with two companies, infineon as well as Navitasto help develop a new line of higher power gallium nitride chargers capable of delivering up to 15 watts (total). Chargers will have increased efficiency while maintaining a compact form factor for easy portability.
Anker calls its new technology GaNPrime, and it includes the next generation of the company’s proprietary fast charging standard: PowerIQ 4.0, which provides up to 1W single-device charging speeds over USB-C, as well as dynamic power distribution to ensure that devices with The lowest battery level gets higher priority when several are connected to the charger at the same time. If your laptop battery is fine, but your smartphone is on the verge of dying, PowerIQ 4.0 will make sure your phone charges at maximum speed while limiting the laptop’s power.
A week after revealing the partnerships behind the technology behind the new gallium nitride fast chargers, Anker has unveiled its GaNPrime charger line with multiple options that balance power output, portability and affordability for a variety of devices.
Charger Anker 747 (GaNPrime 150 W)
The flagship of Anker’s new GaNPrime range is the 747 Charger, which, as far as we can tell, has nothing to do with the iconic jet other than its name. 747 is available today for $110 and Anker boasts that it is 38% smaller than Apple 140W MacBook Pro Charger for $99, including three USB-C ports and an additional USB-A port. However, each USB-C port on the Anker 747 has a maximum power output of 100W, while Apple’s USB-C PD 3.1 compliant MacBook Charger can deliver a full 140W through its single USB-C port. .
Anker’s latest and greatest model is still not powerful enough to keep a more powerful gaming laptop running while the battery is charging. At the moment ‘World’s smallest’ 240W GaN charger is still pretty powerful, and that’s assuming you have a USB-C PD 3.1 compliant laptop that can handle that much power over USB-C. Anker’s new GaNPrime chargers offer the ability to simultaneously charge a pair of low-power laptops via USB-C, or a laptop and a device like the Nintendo Switch, without having to pack multiple power banks while traveling.
Anker 735 and 737 Charger (GaNPrime 65W and 120W)
For those who want even less footprint, the new Anker 735 and 737 GaNPrime chargers reduce the size of the 747, yet each has two USB-C ports and one USB-A port. The cheaper $60 Anker 735 has a maximum power output of 65W, while the $95 Anker 737 can go up to 120W, with up to 100W through one of its USB-C ports.
Anker 615 USB Power Extender (GaNPrime 65W)
For those who want the flexibility to charge USB devices, as well as other devices with suitable charging cables that require access to an AC outlet, the $70 Anker 615 is a universal power strip with a removable silicone sleeve to reveal a longer power strip hidden inside. – Ideal for placing the charger on the bedside table in a hotel room when the nearest AC outlet is hidden behind the bed. The Anker 615 offers two USB-C ports, one USB-A port, and a couple of AC outlets, but USB-C power output is limited to 65W.
External battery Anker 733 (GaNPrime PowerCore 65 W)
The $100 Anker 733 power supply delivers similar power to the Anker 735 with a maximum output of 65W through two USB-C ports and one USB-A port, but that’s only when plugged into a wall outlet. As the name suggests, the Anker 733 Power Bank also comes with a built-in 10,000mAh rechargeable battery, but when charging devices on battery power alone, the output is reduced to 30W.
Charging station Anker 727 (GaNPrime 100 W)
The $95 Anker 727 Charging Station takes the same approach as the Anker 615 USB Extender, with two AC outlets connecting a pair of USC-C ports, but doubles the old-school USB-A ports to two for legacy devices. Unlike a power strip, the Anker 727 provides a full 100W charge and can be boosted up to 100W when needed via a single USB-C port. Anker also boasts that the 727 is much thinner than most power strips, but not so thin that you can’t power devices relying on a traditional AC plug.
