Anker recently released a new high-powered, versatile charger that will likely make its way to the top of everyone’s must-have MacBook and iPad Pro accessories list. The 60W PowerPort+ 5 features one USB-C port with Power Delivery that is capable of pushing 29W (full speed) to Apple’s 12-inch MacBook and four standard USB ports for charging an iPhone, iPad and other devices at up to 2.4A per port. Here’s a look at how you can take advantage of all that power…
At $44 it’s about $5 less than Apple’s single-port USB-C Power Adapter, plus it packs more overall power and number of ports. Instead of toting around multiple chargers or adapters, MacBook owners can now refuel their laptop and other devices (sharing 31W) at the same time from a single charger. What’s more, if you pair it with a USB-C to Lightning cable, you should be able to quick-charge your 12.9-inch iPad Pro. We haven’t gotten our hands on a review unit yet, but we’ve had great experiences with other Anker products and it comes with an 18-month warranty.
Anker’s PowerPort 5+ is now available at Amazon for $43.99 Prime shipped.
If you’re looking to power your MacBook while on-the-go, Anker’s massive 20100mAh PowerCore+ Power Bank with USB-C is going to be your best bet.
