Anker's Latest 'Prime' Lineup Includes Wall Chargers, Desktop Chargers, and Power Banks

Anker is introducing a number of new charging accessories in its higher-end Anker Prime lineup today, including multiple variants of wall chargers, desktop chargers, and power banks.


In the traditional wall charger category, Anker is launching two new options with GaN technology and folding prongs (U.S. versions only) to enable compact form factors. There's a 67-watt charger ($59.99 at Anker and Amazon) and a beefier 100-watt version ($84.99 at Anker and Amazon), with each one featuring a pair of USB-C ports and a USB-A port.

On each model, you can get the full 67 or 100 watts from either USB-C port, while the USB-A port can deliver up to 22.5 watts. Available power will, however, be divided among the ports if you have multiple accessories plugged in to charge.

Anker notes that the two models are each about half the size of their respective first-party Apple charger (67-watt and 96-watt) counterparts, while both products include the latest temperature control technology, insulated pins, and advanced chip technology for greater power efficiency.

If you need more charging power at a fixed location, the Anker Prime 240W GaN Desktop Charger ($199.99 at Anker and Amazon) offers three USB-C ports and a USB-A port. One of the USB-C ports can deliver up to 140 watts for the fastest possible charging of Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro models over Apple's USB-C to MagSafe cable. The other two USB-C ports can deliver up to 100 watts each while the USB-A port offers up to 22.5 watts of charging power.

For users who want a thin desktop charging option, the Anker Prime 6-in-1 Charging Station ($109.99 at Anker and Amazon) offers up to 140 watts of USB charging power across two USB-C and two USB-A ports, plus two additional power outlets, all in a package that's just 0.7 inches thick. A removable 5-foot cable gives you flexibility for placement, while the full 140-watt charging power can be routed through a single USB-C port for the fastest possible MacBook Pro charging. An integrated digital display also gives you a glanceable moment-by-moment look at the USB power draw.


For those who are looking for a combination of desktop and on-the-go charging with some of the latest bells and whistles, the Anker Prime Power Bank series pairs several portable power bank options with a wireless charging base that doubles as a desktop charger.

There are three Anker Prime power banks options coming in at 12,000 mAh at 130 watts for $89.99 (Anker and Amazon), 20,000 mAh at 200 watts for $129.99 (Anker and Amazon), and 27,650 mAh at 250 watts for $179.99 (Anker and Amazon). All three models support a new wireless charging base or can be recharged through their USB-C ports, and they all feature smart displays to provide information on current charge state, estimated time remaining or until full recharge, and current output wattage.

250-watt power bank and charging base

The 130-watt model supports 65-watt input and output with a pair of USB-C ports, while the 200-watt model supports up to 100 watts of input and output with two USB-C ports and a USB-A port. The 250-watt model supports a maximum of 140 watts input and output through a single port with a pair of USB-C ports and a USB-A port.

The 100W Charging Base can deliver 100 watts of charging power through its pogo-pin connector to recharge any of the new Anker Prime power banks, while three additional ports integrated into the side of the charging base can charge additional devices. There are two USB-C ports (one at 100 watts and one at 30 watts) and a USB-A port with up to 22.5 watts of charging power. As with the other chargers, the maximum 100-watt charging power will be divided among the various outputs based on what is connected.


The charging base sells for $69.99 on its own at Anker and Amazon or comes as part of a bundle with the 250-watt power bank model for $219.99, saving you $30 over purchasing the two items separately.

The 240W Desktop Charger and the 250W Power Bank are going up for pre-order, while the rest of the new products are launching today in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany with the exception of the 6-in-1 Charging Station, which is U.S.-only.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Apple Adds Support for Live Activities to Shazam

Apple today added support for Live Activities in Shazam, its free music discovery and identification app. Shazam's Live Activities keep the user updated when searching for music in the background, which is particularly useful when multitasking or identifying songs in other apps .

Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, and has been gradually bringing the app into closer alignment with ‌ Apple Music ‌ ever since, offering trials to the streaming service through the app and the ability to sync Shazams directly to ‌‌Apple Music‌‌. Shazam can be downloaded from the App Store for free . It can be accessed through the Control Center on ‌‌ iPhone ‌‌ and ‌‌ iPad ‌‌, through ‌ Siri ‌ commands, or on the Mac, as well as via widgets.

Review: Anker's Latest 3-in-1 Power Bank is a Versatile On-the-Go Powerhouse

Popular accessory brand Anker has just launched a new 10K version of its 3-in-1 power bank that offers up to 30 watts of charging power, a convenient display to quickly view exact charge status, an integrated USB-C cable for both input and output, and built-in folding prongs to recharge directly from a power outlet. I've recently been testing one of these Anker power banks out, and it has become a must-have accessory for my gear bag. Competitively priced at $44.99, the 10,000 mAh capacity means I can charge up my iPhone 15 Pro Max more than one and a half times while on the go, which is plenty for a long day out or even a weekend trip where easy access to power might be iffy. And the 30-watt charging speed means it'll charge my devices up quickly, meaning spending less time with my phone awkwardly tethered to a power bank while I'm out and about. A quick charge during a lunch or dinner is more than enough to keep my iPhone topped off for the remainder of the day. Th
