Anker 523 Charger (47 W, Nano 3) with dual USB-C ports is now available
The Anker 523 Charger (47 W, Nano 3) has arrived in the US. The gadget has two USB-C ports which, when in single use, have a maximum output of 45 W. This allows you to fast charge devices like a MacBook Air. When simultaneously charging two devices, the USB-C ports output 27 W and 20 W each. These lower charging powers suit gadgets like the iPhone 14, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra or iPad.
Anker’s ActiveShield 2.0 technology takes over 3 million temperature readings daily, enabling safety features like overtemperature protection. The company claims that the gadget is more compact than competitor products, thanks in part to the use of gallium nitride (GaN) in place of silicon. The portable device has foldable pins, measures 1.36 x 1.36 x 2.05-in (~345 x 345 x 52.1 mm), and weighs around 0.8 oz (~22.7 g).
You can buy the Anker 523 Charger (47 W, Nano 3) in the US for US$39.99. The gadget is available in Arctic White, Black Ice and Glacier Blue and comes with an 18-month warranty. An EU version is already available in Germany and the Netherlands for €39.99 (~US$42); it is unclear when the device will launch in other European markets such as the UK and the Netherlands.
