We tested Anker’s new chargers and cables, with very small sizes but great charging powerand with the latest technologies incorporated to take care of the battery of your Apple devices.
We all take care of our iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks by using cases and covers that keep them looking pristine. Just as important as taking care of it on the outside is doing it on the inside, and for this It is essential to use certified chargers that have the necessary protection measures to avoid overloads and excessive heating of our device.. And we cannot forget the cables, which are also important both for making the most of the chargers’ performance and for the safety of our devices. With these Anker chargers and cables we won’t have a single problem because they have the most advanced security technologies.
Anker 511 Nano 3
The perfect charger for iPhone and iPad is this tiny Anker Nano 3. With such a small size, however, it has a charging power of 30W, which allows you to not only recharge your iPhone with fast charging, but also has more than enough power to recharge your 12.9-inch iPad Pro, even a MacBook Air. The official charger for Apple’s most affordable laptop packs that same 30W wattage, and is more than twice as big as Anker’s Nano 3. In order to have this size, it uses GaN technology, which allows it to reduce size without overheating problems. It does not stop at this, it also includes ActiveShield 2.0 technology that continuously monitors the temperature to avoid problems.
It is also available in various colors so that you can combine it to your liking, including the new purple color of the iPhone 14 Pro. Of course, it is not only compatible with Apple products, but also with other devices such as Samsung, being able to take advantage of the Super Fast Charge of the korean brand Smaller and more powerful than the official Apple charger, and all for the same price, since you can buy it on Amazon for only €24.99 (link).
Anker 541 USB-C to Lightning (Bio-Based)
The perfect complement to a charger like the Nano 3 is a USB-C to Lightning cable that supports the Power Delivery protocol, otherwise you won’t be able to take advantage of the charger’s features. Anker has created the first cable made with biological materials derived from plants, such as sugar cane or corn. By using these materials for the cable sheath, the use of plastics is reduced, a trend that luckily is increasingly being taken seriously by manufacturers, and that is great news.
The fact that it is made with these materials does not mean giving up durability. The cable has been subjected to the most demanding tests and Anker assures that it will resist up to 20,000 folds. I have not been able to verify it, but the cable impresses with great resistance, the materials have a great touch, and during these weeks I have subjected it to the most demanding tests (the hands of my children) and I believe that Anker’s promise will be fulfilled without problems . Available in two lengths (0.9m and 1.8m) and has an elastic strap to keep it up, a detail that I personally attach importance to. Of course it has MFi certification, and It is priced at €24.99 (1.8m) and €19.99 (0.9m) on Amazon (link), in any of the five colors available, the same as the Nano 3 charger.
Anker 737 GaNPrime 120W
If you are looking for a charger for all your devices, the new Anker 737 is what you need. With a power of 120W, it is the perfect charger to recharge your laptop, iPhone and iPad. It has three charging ports, two USB-C and one USB-A. The maximum charging power is 120W that is distributed among the three ports. In the event that we use only one of the USB-C ports, the maximum power will be 100W, and if we use only USB-A, it will be 22.5W. These are numbers that ensure that you will be able to recharge the most demanding Apple laptops, such as the 2021 MacBook Pro 16″.
The power should not scare you to recharge other devices that require less power, because PowerIQ 4.0 technology makes the charger know at all times the charging power that the device connected to it needs, and adjusts it to achieve the most efficient recharge. You can use it to recharge your MacBook Pro, your iPhone, your Apple Watch or your AirPods, without worrying about a thing. Of course it also has ActiveShield 2.0 protection to prevent overheating. Its price is much lower than the most similar Apple charger in power (but with a single USB-C port). You can buy it on Amazon for €94.99 (link)
Anker 765 USB-C to USB-C 140W
With such powerful chargers it is very important to use quality cables, and the perfect complement is the Anker 765 cable that supports charging powers of up to 140W, perfect for any device that comes to mind thanks to its compatibility with Power Delivery 3.1. Made of braided nylon and with reinforced connectors, it is tested to withstand more than 35,000 bends. It is available in two sizes (0.90 and 1.80 meters) with a price of €29.99 (link) and from €32.99 (link) respectively on Amazon.
After years of using Anker cable chargers, this is always the brand I recommend to anyone looking for quality chargers at good prices. Not only do they deliver what they promise in terms of power, but they give you peace of mind knowing that they include the necessary technologies to take care of your devices while they recharge. The new Anker Nano 3 is the perfect everyday charger for your iPhone or iPad, even for your MacBook Air, with a size that allows you to take it anywhere. Secondly the Anker 737 charger is a perfect all-in-one, with enough power to recharge up to 3 devices simultaneously, and that you can even use with your laptop. Together with them, Anker cables are highly recommended for performance and resistance. Curious about the new cable made with materials derived from plants, which has pleasantly surprised me in terms of resistance.
