Cheaper Anker 312 30W and 317 100W USB-C Chargers are now available
Anker has launched the 312 30W USB-C Charger and the 317 100W USB-C Charger. Both of the single-port gadgets are on the more affordable side of Anker’s range. The 312, which has launched in the US and EU, is a compact charging plug, with the pins on the US model folding flush with the charger’s body. The company claims this makes the gadget 30% smaller than competitor products. Anker suggests the device is suitable for charging the iPhone 14, Samsung S23, MacBook Air or iPad Pro.
The 317 100W charger, available in the US, can fully charge a MacBook Pro 16 2021 M1 Max in 80 minutes. PowerIQ 3.0 technology makes the gadget compatible with many products and it has the same foldable design as the 312. The charging plugs have a built-in MultiProtect system checking for issues such as over-voltage and overheating. Plus, both devices come with a 5 ft (~1.5 m) USB-C to USB-C cable, though you would need to supply a USB-C to lightning cable to charge Apple devices.
The 312 measures 1.05 x 0.95 x 0.40-in (~26.7 x 24.1 x 10.2 mm) and the 1.51 x 0.96 x 0.4-in (~38.4 x 24.4 x 10.2 mm). You can now buy the Anker 312 30W USB-C Charger at Amazon in the US and EU countries such as Germany for US$17.99 or €19.99; a 10% off coupon is currently offered in the US. The Anker 317 100W USB-C Charger retails for U$35.99 in the US. Both gadgets are available in black or white. It is unclear when these devices could reach other markets.
