Anker has launched the 521 Power Strip, which you can use to charge six devices simultaneously. The gadget has three USB-A outlets and two 12 W USB-A ports. Plus, a 30 W USB-C port can charge an iPhone 13 in less than half the time needed when using a standard 5 W charger. Anker suggests that you could use the gadget to declutter a desk, dorm or hotel room.

Anker has released the 521 Power Strip that lets you charge up to six devices at once. The company suggests that the gadget could be handy in a dorm or hotel room, or to declutter your desk. At the back of the 521 Power Strip are three AC outlets, with two 12 W USB-A ports and a 30 W USB-C port located on the front of the gadget.

The USB-C port is capable of high-speed charging; for example, you could charge an iPhone 13 in 90 minutes, more than twice as fast as with the original 5 W charger. When all three USB ports are in use, the power output reduces to 10 W shared across the USB-A outlets and 20 W for the USB-C port.

ActiveShield technology monitors the device’s temperature to ensure the power strip doesn’t overheat; Anker claims that the 521 Power Strip would take around one million readings overnight. The eight-point safety system also includes protection from overvoltage and surges, and LED lights on the gadget indicate when the defence is in place.

The compact device measures 4.56 x 1.96-in (~11.6 x 5.0 cm), weighs 10.4 oz (~294.8 g) and comes with a 5 ft (~1.5 m) extension cord. You can now buy the Anker 521 Power Strip for US$39.99 in black or white.
