Anker Innovations, one of our favorite gadget manufacturers has been working diligently to release new chargers and accessories for the new lineup of iPhones. Newly released are the PowerPort III Nano, PowerPort Atom III Slim, PowerPort III Duo, PowerCore 10000 PD Redux, PowerPort PD-2, USB-C to lightning cables, and the PowerWave+ wireless charging pad. Read on to learn more!
The new line of iPhone 11 compatible accessories feature chargers that are slimmer, lighter, more portable, and charge your devices faster than ever. Anker was kind enough to send a few samples for testing and we’re happy to report that they live up to the hype.
The PowerPort III Nano provides full speed charging for your iPhone 11 from a tiny 1-inch by 1-inch form factor. This 18W charger is much smaller than the standard iPhone 11 wall charger that comes in the box and even matches the size of the classic 5W iPhone chargers that used to come in the box. The PowerPort III Nano features a USB-C port and is universally compatible with any mobile device. It’s a simple, yet useful accessory for travelers.
The PowerPort Atom III Slim is the slimmest Power Delivery charger yet and features 30W charging speeds. Anker swapped out silicone with gallium nitride, which allowed them to reduce the size of the charger significantly to a credit card-sized rectangle, though 0.63 inches thick. With a folding plug, this powerful charger can not only charge an iPhone, but also larger devices like a MacBook, tablet, Nintendo Switch, and more. At 30W, the PowerPort Atom III Slim can fully charge a MacBook 12” in only 2 hours and retails for $34.99.
The PowerPort III Duo features two USB-C ports that each deliver 18W of charging power, allowing you to charge two iPhone 11s at the same time. This charger is perfect for the Apple loving family who wants to charge their devices together. The plug folds in for portability, which is a nice feature. The PowerPort III Duo is also universally compatible with mobile devices and retails for $29.99.
The PowerCore 10000 PD Redux is a powerful mobile power bank that’s built to charge the latest Apple iPhones and many other devices. With a fantastic size-to-power ratio, you’ve got two full iPhone charges in your pocket. The PowerCore 10000 PD Redux features a USB-C port and a USB-A port so you can charge two devices at the same time. It also comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable to recharge your power bank and a mesh bag for easy portability. With a capacity of 10,000 mAh and max power output of 18W, it’s the perfect modern power bank for mobility. It’s a fantastic power bank that has become my go-to charger when I’m traveling. The PowerCore 10000 PD Redux retails for $45.99.
The PowerPort PD 2 is perfect for those who want to charge their latest iPhone 11 at the same time as another older device that uses standard USB ports. The PowerPort PD 2 has one USB-C port and one USB-A port and has the ability to charge your devices at 18W for great versatility. The plug folds down for easy portability and the charger retails for $22.99.
Not the newest release, but still relevant and something I use every day, is the Anker PowerWave+ Pad. This wireless charging pad charges your iPhone at 7.5W while also charging your Apple Watch at the same time and is extremely convenient both for night table use as well as traveling. The PowerWave+ doesn’t come with a Watch charger, but you can easily install yours in the pad by coiling the cable inside the base and plugging in the USB jack. The PowerWave+ does include a quick charge wall charger and Powerline micro USB cable, so you just need to add your Apple Watch charging cable and you’re ready to charge. You can get yours for $59.99.
The best way to use all of these new chargers is with Anker’s new USB-C to Lightning charging cables. These Apple MFi Certified cables work well in conjunction with Anker’s new chargers and the latest iPhones. These cables can charge and sync your phone and are built to last 12x longer than other cables, which is why Anker is confident enough to provide a hassle-free lifetime warranty. These cables retail for $15.99 each.
Anker once again proved that they’re committed to their customers’ needs by releasing a ton of great accessories in conjunction with the release of the Apple iPhone 11 series. All of their products are built well and are made to last.
