Fast Charge, Multiple Ports

This Will Be Your Wall Charger for the Next Five Years


February 13, 2019 Tech By

Anker just announced its new line of USB-C of devices designed to quickly and easily charge your gadgets. The line includes the PowerHouse 200 ($400), a 200Wh/5,7600 mAh portable charging generator; the PowerCore Fusion 10000($46), a 2-in-1 hybrid wall charger that can be unplugged and used as a 10,000mAh portable power bank; and the PowerPort Atom PD 4 ($100), a really neat, 100-watt wall adapter with four ports.

The PowerPort Atom PD 4 is probably the most convenient as it can fast charge multiple devices, with two USB-C and two USB-A ports (both which are decked out with high-speed charging technology) at the same time. And it only takes up one wall outlet. With this one adapter, you can charge your USB-C laptop, wireless headphones, smartphone and smartwatch.

Now, $100 seems pretty steep considering that it’s a wall adapter — and it is steep. However, considering that most of our devices in the future will support USB-C and/or fast charging, this seems like an outlet-saving investment that’s pretty future-proof. At least for the next few years.
