Hi, Anker fans!
As many of you know, we spent last week in fabulous Las Vegas, at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES is an annual trade show that’s been going on for 50 years. It’s a place that gives over 4,000 companies like ours a massive annual platform to demonstrate the most exciting new releases and cutting-edge technology to over 17,000 attendees. Needless to say, we’re always very excited when this time of the year rolls around.
Now, as we’re coming back down off of our convention high, we want to fill you in on this year’s goings-on!
Preparing the Anker Space
2018 was our first year having a full booth at CES, but we were incredibly happy to be able to fill the space with remarkable technology to demonstrate to attendees.
Welcoming Guests and Media
We were absolutely blown away by the turnout from the very beginning, featuring folks from every corner of the industry, including media outlets from around the nation and abroad!
From our major rebranding effort as Anker Innovations, to establishing several all-new brands (including our newest addition to the family, Soundcore audio), we had a lot to tell about the past year’s accomplishments.
Featured Products and Highlights
First up was ZOLO Liberty+. Our first pair of total-wireless earphones reached an unprecedented $2.8 million on Kickstarter. Compact and lightweight, with robust water resistance and incredible battery life, Liberty+ is one of our proudest achievements of 2017.
2.Anker PowerHouse 200
Our original PowerHouse combined the power of a portable generator with the clean, silent operation and convenience of PowerCore. We’ve now made PowerHouse more accessible than ever before, with a slimmed-down version designed for maximum portability. The ultimate power source for camping trips, power outages, emergencies, and more, PowerHouse 200 is making quite a name for itself. It was even honored with two media awards at CES, from Gear Patrol and 9to5Toys.
The soda-can sized smart projector with immersive sound and crisp, high-contrast video. Capsule launched on Indiegogo last fall, receiving over $1.2 million in support, and became the most popular crowdfunding projector project of all time. Capsule is now available for purchase on Amazon, so everyone can experience Capsule for themselves, and forever redefine their portable entertainment.
And that was just the beginning! Other highlights included:
Our Soundcore Smart Neckband, a noise-canceling Bluetooth headset featuring industry-leading directional microphone technology and long-lasting battery life, being honored by CES with the 2018 Innovation Award.
Introducing the world to Roav VIVA, the smart charger that brings Amazon Alexa into your car. Techlicious came by to get a close look, and ended up giving VIVA a spot on their top picks of CES list!
Showcasing our newest wireless chargers (from left to right):
A wireless charging pad that delivers 7.5 W of charging power to Apple devices, and automatically detects Samsung devices to adjust up to 10 W of charging power for ideal speeds.
A 10 W charging pad specially designed for Android devices.
A stand version of PowerWave 7.5 (the first charger in the picture).
A charging pad which provides a 7.5 W charge to two devices simultaneously.
Displaying our portable Power Delivery innovations, as we endeavor to create a comprehensive range of products that take full advantage of Power Delivery technology, while retaining a compact and portable design.
All in all, we had an amazing time at this year’s show.
We’d like to express our appreciation to everyone who came out to see us, and most of all, we’d like to thank you, Anker fans. Without your steadfast support since Day 1, none of this would ever have been possible. With your help, we hope to reach ever greater milestones in 2018—and beyond.
