Anker has become a household name in the world of electronic accessories by selling well-made, reliable, and cost-efficient products. Whether you’re using an Anker portable battery, 3D printer, docking station, or one of their Eufy or Soundcore devices, Anker’s offerings never fail to impress us. Here are some of the products they were showing this week in Vegas.

Anker 551 USB-C Hub (8-in-1 Tablet Stand)

The 551 USB-C Hub 8-in-1 USB-C hub is perfect for those who need extra ports while on the go.

There is also an integrated adjustable tablet stand for easy viewing or typing. At just $99.99, we think this might be the next “must-have” tablet accessory.

Anker 647 Charging Station

I love Anker’s charging stations and use one in several locations in my home. The new Anker 647 can charge up to four devices simultaneously.

This accessory offers three AC outlets, two retractable USB-C cables, a USB-C port, and a USB-A port. We love the flexibility of the charger and are excited to have a cleaner desk, thanks to the retractable cables!

The 647 features an intuitive LED indicator light and supports fast charging protocols like Power Delivery 2.0/3.0 and Quick Charge 3.0/4.0+. You’ll get 60W maximum per USB-C port or 100W shared.

The 647 Charging Station will be available in March for $89.99.

Anker 675 USB-C Docking Station (12-in-1, Monitor Stand with Wireless Charging)

There are 12 different ports on the Anker 675: two HDMI ports, two Mini DisplayPort 1x ports, four USB 3.0 type A ports, one USB 3.2 type C port with Power Delivery support up to 100W, one Gigabit Ethernet port, one SD card reader port, and one MicroSD card reader port.

ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4

That means this one docking station more than compensates for the fact that companies like Apple have stripped too many ports from laptops to make them thinner and lighter.

And as if that weren’t enough, this monitor stand saves space, provides extra storage, and features wireless charging, so you can keep your phone and AirPods fully charged while you work.

I especially love the fact that this Docking Station is device agnostic, which means it will work with your current computer and any new computer you may purchase in the next few years.

I don’t know about you, but I want one of these for my home and office desks! At $249, we think this is well-priced and will quickly become a staple for many desktops!

AnkerMake M5 3D Printer

We wrote about the AnkerMake M5 3D Printer last year, and now they are finally available! The M5 promises print speeds up to five times faster using a dual extruder system.

High-accuracy stepper motors provide precise control over the size and shape of your model prints, and the built-in AI camera lets you monitor your progress. The printer has a large build volume and an intuitive touchscreen interface.

Whether you are an experienced 3D printer or looking to dip your toe into 3D printing creativity, this $799 device may be just right.

AnkerWork M650 Wireless Microphone

I reviewed the AnkerWork B600 Video Bar and loved it. I still use it as my main video conferencing solution. And if the B600 is any indication, Anker’s new AnkerWork M650 Wireless Microphone is likely the next.

This wireless microphone system from AnkerWork offers studio-quality sound at an affordable price. Offering long-range connectivity, you can be as far as 200 feet away from the capture device and still have crystal-clear audio capture.

The system even has five interchangeable microphone capsules to tailor your recording setup. We are intrigued by the design and look forward to learning more when the $249 system is released in March.
