Prime Day has come and gone, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any good deals out there anymore. If you missed your chance to get some Anker charging accessories on the cheap during Amazon's self-created shopping event, you've now got another shot at it. Eight Anker products are up to 35% off as Amazon's deal of the day.

The deals all revolve around charging and cables, so there should be something great in the mix for everybody. Anker has its convenient 2-in-1 PowerCore Fusion 10000 on offer that doubles as a 20W charger and a 10,000mAh powerbank at the same time, and there's its Power Strip with two outlets and three USB ports. Then there are also more conventional products, like the 30W Anker Powerport Speed+ Duo charger with a USB-A and a USB-C port, the 60W PowerCore III Elite 25600mAh powerbank, and a 15W wireless USB-C charger. Amazon's also got our iPhone-wielding readers and friends covered with a three-pack of USB-A to Lighting cables and its 2-in-1 wireless charging station for the iPhone and Apple Watch.

You have all day to grab any of the products you're interested in, but I'd recommend buying them sooner rather than later. You never know if Amazon runs out of inventory. Pick your poison on Amazon's landing page or right here on our list:

Anker batteries, cables, and chargers are discounted on Amazon

The Verge 19 July, 2021 - 09:19am

Snag some for vacation or your next dorm room

If you buy something from a Verge link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Whether you’re gearing up for the back-to-school season or just looking for some extra charging kits to make your vacation go a little smoother, Anker’s latest discounts at Amazon might have what you’re looking for. There are a handful of products on sale, including a three-pack of iPhone cables (USB-A-to-Lightning) for $19.49 instead of $30, and a clever power strip with two outlets and three USB ports (two USB-A ports and one USB-C 18W PD port) for $26 instead of $36. There’s also a 15W Qi wireless charging pad available for $20 instead of $30, but it doesn’t include a power adapter.

The niftiest device that’s discounted today is Anker’s Powercore Fusion wall charger-meets-battery pack. The black-colored GaN charger with a 10,000mAh battery within costs $34.50 today instead of $46. With it, you can charge devices up to 20W via USB-C or up to 15W when you use that port and the USB-A simultaneously, whether you’re connected to the wall or using the Fusion as a battery pack. It probably won’t be powerful enough to charge your laptop while you use it (unless you use something like a Chromebook), but it seems great for smaller devices and accessories. Check out Dieter Bohn’s review right here.

Anker’s Powercore Fusion blends together the functionality of a wall charger with a portable battery tank. It’s not the most powerful option out there for its size, but it makes up for it in versatility.

Apple’s Siri Remote is included with the latest Apple TV 4K, but it’s also compatible with the 2017 model and the Apple TV HD. It has an iPod-style scroll wheel, a five-way click pad, touch controls, and more.

There are some other great deals happening today, even if their discounts are small:

Review: Anker's PowerWave Go 3-in-1 Stand Charges Your Apple Devices at Home and on the Go

MacRumors 19 July, 2021 - 08:00am

The PowerWave Go is made largely of gray plastic, but it looks nice and feels solid. The front of the main body is dominated by a depression which houses a slot for the rechargeable power bank that doubles as the phone charger portion of the device, as well as a spot for wirelessly charging an ‌AirPods‌ or AirPods Pro case.

One limitation worth noting is that Anker says the unit is not compatible with the iPhone 12 mini. I haven't had a chance to confirm with Anker the reason for this, but one possibility is that the smaller device say may prevent the charging coils from lining up properly in stand mode.

The whole docking station is powered through a single five-foot USB-C to USB-C cable and the 45-watt version of Anker's new ultra-compact Nano II GaN chargers, with both the charger and cable included in the box.

In this desktop mode, the PowerWave Go supplies up to 10 watts of charging power for a phone, although an ‌iPhone‌ will be limited to 7.5 watts due to Apple's limitations on non-MagSafe charging solutions. It will also supply 5 watts each to the ‌AirPods‌ charging spot and the USB-C port for the Apple Watch charger.

Since the Apple Watch charging module uses USB-C, you can also use it separately without the power bank or docking station, such as by connecting it directly to a USB-C power adapter or to a USB-C port on a computer.

The power bank holds up 10,000 mAh of charge at 3.7 volts for a total of 37 Wh of energy. That's enough to fully charge most ‌iPhone‌ models around two to four times. The power bank can also be charged directly over USB-C, so you don't need to have access to the PowerWave Go base to recharge it. And thanks to passthrough charging, you can also wirelessly charge your phone while recharging the power bank.

The PowerWave Go won't charge as quickly as the ‌MagSafe‌ Belkin charger, but I'm generally using it overnight so speed isn't really a factor and can actually be a detriment if too much heat is generated. The ‌MagSafe‌ aspect of the Belkin also means that support is limited to the iPhone 12 lineup at the moment, while the PowerWave Go can support a broader range of Qi-compatible devices.

The power bank on the PowerWave Go has a fairly bright blue light on its side that comes on whenever it's charging a device in either stand mode or portable mode. So for those who are sensitive to light at night, that's something to be aware of.

I definitely prefer the ‌AirPods‌ charging spot on the PowerWave Go over the Belkin one, at least for the ‌AirPods Pro‌ I use daily. It's super easy to just drop them into their spot on the PowerWave Go, while the Belkin has more of a slight depression on a flat surface and it takes longer than I'd like for the charging light to come on and confirm that I have the case positioned correctly. The Belkin setup does allow for larger devices like another phone to be charged in the ‌AirPods‌ spot, but it's at slower speeds and not something I've ever needed to use.

All of this convenience doesn't come cheaply, with the PowerWave Go priced at $179.99, which is $40 more than the Belkin dock when purchased through Apple. But with a quality build supporting a number of Apple devices, a removable high-capacity power bank with wireless charging, and Anker's excellent 45W wall charger also included, there's a lot of value in this package.

Review: Anker debuts new PowerWave Go 3-in-1, its most versatile charging stand yet

9to5Toys 19 July, 2021 - 06:25am

Today, Anker is expanding its stable of charging stations with a new 3-in-1 offering that can refuel all of the gear in your Apple setup. Entering with a desktop- and nightstand-friendly form-factor, the new Anker PowerWave Go delivers a unique design that lets you go from refueling gear at home to charging on-the-go thanks to a convertible 10,000mAh power bank with integrated Qi charger to go alongside the dock itself. Now we’re taking a hands-on look at the latest charger, so head below for all of the details and our thoughts.

Entering into the PowerWave stable, the latest release from Anker arrives with a unique 3-in-1 design. Unlike other charging stations from the brand, the new Anker PowerWave Go stands out by packing a convertible design that can go from refueling gear at home to on-the-go.

At the center of the experience is a 10,000mAh power bank, which is designed to pair with the included dock. It packs an integrated 10W Qi charging pad to complement its 18W USB-C output. There are some special charging connectors at the bottom that magnetically connect into the dock, which arrives with a secondary 5W Qi pad for refueling earbuds and a USB-C port. While you can plug in any USB-C cord into that last slot, it’s made to pair with the included Apple Watch charger for coverage in all three core aspects of an Apple setup.

Anker completes the package with the 45W version of its new Nano II GaN chargers, which we previously reviewed earlier in the year. This provides more than enough juice to power the entire package and all three of the devices it supports.

The new Anker PowerWave Go is now available for purchase via Amazon and directly from its own online storefront. Entering with a $179.99 price tag, the charging station certainly arrives at a premium to justify its unique feature set and design.

I’ve been using the latest charging station from Anker over the past week or so, and have been enjoying just how versatile the package is. Fitting for Anker’s most capable desktop charger, the new PowerWave Go certainly delivers about everything you could want from a package like this.

Alongside touting the usual Anker quality that we’ve come to know time and time again, the PowerWave Go has a pretty slick overall design that looks pretty sleek on your nightstand. My favorite aspect of it has to be all of the various combinations you can configure. There’s of course the full 3-in-1 station for use while you’re home, but while out and about the power bank’s charging selection definitely delivers a compelling experience. The Apple Watch charger being modular means you can snap it out and use it in your everyday carry.

The Anker PowerWave Go does plenty of things and all of them quite well. It’s about as flexible as you’ll find from the brand, or really any company for that matter, and delivers the most well-rounded package I’ve used. There are certainly better options out there for a dedicated on-the-go package or setup that exclusively lives at home, but you won’t find anything that can handle both use cases as well as Anker’s new release today.

Sure it’s pricy, but if you’re in the market for a setup that’s as capable for charging at the nightstand as it is for your everyday carry, the Anker PowerWave Go is certainly just that.

People rave about this charger in the reviews. “I really like this 2-in-1 power bank and charger!" one happy customer wrote. "I used to carry a pouch that had a power bank and 12-watt Apple charger.

MFi certification and strict quality testing ensure your Apple devices are charged safely, at their fastest possible speed, while a special design ensures the cables can handle more than 12,000 bends.

“I absolutely love these things. I don’t carry on about cables usually, but it’s truly amazing how fast they charge everything: the iPad, iPhone and Beats. I have, and I’m not kidding about this, literally gone through an incredible number of lightning cables. So many fail so quickly. I should have started with Anker.” a five-star reviewer wrote.
