Anker’s New Chargers Work Faster, Draw Less Power

And can handle several devices at once

Several new chargers are on the way from Anker, claiming faster charging times despite using less overall energy in the process.

This new generation of Gallium Nitride (GaN) chargers uses an updated version of the technology, which Anker calls GaNPrime. In the press release, Anker's CEO of Innovations, Steven Yang, said, "GaNPrime represents a new era in charging. In addition to delivering a faster and safer charging experience, our new GaNPrime chargers offer significant savings in energy consumption, reinforcing Anker's commitment to a more sustainable future."

The new GaNPrime chargers maintain the compact design of other Anker chargers while also offering multiple ports for both USB-A and USB-C cables—even AC ports in some instances. The expectation is that this adaptability will reduce the need for using or purchasing multiple types of device chargers in the future.

But it's the improved energy efficiency of these new GaNPrime chargers that Anker is really focusing on. Unspecified "green tech" improvements to the base GaN system claims energy conservation at a smaller size when compared to silicon-based chargers. Each GaNPrime charger also utilizes smart charging that can both monitor temperature to avoid overheating and determine how best to route power when multiple devices are charging simultaneously.
