We recently reviewed the Anker 757 PowerHouse, a large 1229Wh portable power station. As you can see in the review, it is an amazing product, but it is a heavy power source that might not always be the best option. The Anker 555 PowerHouse brings some amazing specs in a smaller form factor. Let’s take a look.
Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology is the most significant improvement to hit mobile device chargers in recent years; it offers more efficient, faster-charging speeds in a smaller-sized charger than traditional silicone chargers. Anker was one of the first companies to incorporate GaN technology into their chargers; now, they’re the first to introduce a charger line that uses GaNPrime. Coupled with PowerIQ 4.0, Anker GaNPrime chargers will do something that, until now, no other GaN charger’s been able to do — dynamically adjust power distribution to release any extra power output from one USB port to the other devices being charged.
We recently reviewed the Anker 757 PowerHouse, which is their new portable power station. It is packed with features and super high quality. The Anker 625 Solar Panel is a 100W recharging solution that will keep the 757 powered up on the go or in emergencies. We were able to test it out in the hot Texas sun; let’s look at how that went.
Anker is well known for power and charging accessories; we have reviewed many of their products, and we’ve found their build quality and performance to be consistently good. The company has upped the ante by recently releasing the Anker 757 PowerHouse, cementing its place in the large-form power bank space. I’ve got a review unit; let’s check it out.
When Apple stopped including AC wall adapters with their products, it was a callous attempt to maximize profits further. At the same time, Apple also unlocked the creativity of companies that stepped in and filled the void. The new Anker 735 Charger (Nano II 65W) is one example of a third-party solution; this foldable wall charger has three ports and offers a maximum output of 65W!
The 3D printer world is an interesting place. Many commercially available printers start affordable but can quickly become a time and money suck as you add in all sorts of extras to improve the experience. Anker is jumping into the 3D market, making quite a splash with the Make M5 3D Printer; it will offer some jaw-dropping features right out of the box!
The AnkerWork B600 Video Bar packs a 2K video camera, a microphone array, stereo speakers, and a light into a small package for under $220. After trying more video cameras for Zoom calls than I would like to admit, I can honestly say that Anker is about to have a hit on its hands.
Anker was founded in 2011; since then, the company has become a powerhouse in the mobile accessory market and the world’s number one charging brand. We included a number of their new offerings in our 2021 Holiday Gift Guide, but I wanted to dig deeper into the Anker 633 Magnetic Wireless Charger (MagGo), a 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Station.
After spending countless hours scouring the latest press releases, sitting through virtual embargoed showcases on new products, planning to be in Vegas, and once again having to attend virtually, we’ve found that the best-laid plans don’t always work out. Even so, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most innovative and exciting tech that came out of CES while trying to stay away from products that won’t ship or become available in 2022. So, without further ado, we present Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2022 Awards!
Anker has quickly become one of our favorite mobile device accessory companies; several of us use their chargers and other products all of the time. Anker’s announcements for CES include everything from new wall adapters to portable power stations to video conferencing bars and more. Here’s a look at a few that we have to look forward to in the new year.
The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro True Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds are meant to provide immersive sound with touch controls, customizable HearID active noise cancelation that monitors outside ambient noise without putting too much pressure on your inner ears, and so much more. Most importantly, they are supposed to be comfortable to wear for hours on end while sounding fantastic. Can these TWE live up to the hype?
We’ve tested several Eufy robotic vacuums in my house, and the one thing my wife and I agree on is that the Eufy RoboVac X8 is the best we’ve tested so far. The combination of twin-turbine technology and iPath laser navigation makes the X8 an excellent choice for your next robotic vacuum.
Are you looking for a great pair of true wireless earbuds? If so, you’re going to love the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro! They hit the sweet spot in size, features, and price! These flagship earbuds feature HearID active noise cancellation that automatically monitors outside ambient noise levels in real-time and in-ear pressure to tailor noise cancellation to match the situation. Add coaxial drivers, an ergonomic design, IPX4 water resistance, up to 32 =-hours battery life with the charging case, and a price well under $200, and you’ll see why the Liberty 3 Pro earbuds look like a winner!
You might feel like you have charger plugs all over the place, but do you have one in your travel kit exactly when you need it? And is it powerful enough to cover all your smartphone charging needs? Admit it; you’re not 100% sure now. It’s ok; the folks at Anker have your back with their new Anker Nano Pro plug.
Earbuds seem to keep getting better, and with the addition of active noise cancellation, they can allow users to just disappear in their audio. The Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro with targeted active noise cancellation fits the bill. Great sounding with long battery life and plenty of features make these a perfect option for any situation.
Earlier this year, Anker announced the limited edition Anker Nebula Capsule II R2-D2 version of their popular Nebula Capsule II smart mini projector to positive reception in this galaxy. We were able to get our hands on one of the 1000 units, and while it might become a collectible in the years to come, it’s also an excellent smart portable projector that you can enjoy right now.
I used to think that if we had a winter power outage lasting a week or more, Kev and I would be adequately prepared. We’d have plenty of drinking water on hand, piles of cut wood for the fireplace, our food would be safe (because, winter), and portable battery packs would power our electronics. Earlier this year, we got to find out just how unprepared we actually were when Texas got slammed with one winter storm after another, causing a massive power crisis. What would have made a huge difference for us during this disaster? The Anker PowerHouse II 800.
Eufy Security has just announced a host of new outdoor cameras, many of which offer 8GB on-device storage. The new devices include the eufy Security SoloCam E20 & SoloCam E40, the eufy Security SoloCam L20 & SoloCam L40, the solar-powered eufy Security SoloCam S40, and the eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro. Read on to see the details on these new security cameras and what they have to offer.
Inspired by Star Wars, Anker has announced that their Nebula Capsule II Star Wars R2-D2 Limited Edition Smart Mini Projector is now available for purchase. With only 1000 units available for sale, the Capsule II Star Wars projector may share similar specs to Nebula’s stock model, but there are two distinct differences. First, it will have a limited edition design resembling R2D2 — one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars saga. And second, the start-up sound for this Capsule II will sound like R2-D2 as well.
If working through the pandemic has meant that you’ve been at home more than usual, then you’ve likely run into challenges that have made you wish for equipment upgrades. One of my biggest pain points has been virtual conference calls. Having to do so many virtual meetings in the past year has exposed how insufficient my iMac’s built-in webcam has always been. If you’ve felt let-down by your video conferencing set-up, then the new AnkerWork PowerConf C300 Webcam and the PowerConf S500 Conference Speaker might be of interest.
Who doesn’t love walking into a freshly vacuumed room that they didn’t have to clean themselves? I’ve been enjoying that with the Eufy RoboVac G30 Hybrid. Not only can it handle the daily morning vacuuming of my approximately 10′ x 14′ office, but it can even mop it for me — when I want it to.
