What is the the difference between these 2 identical Anker products on Amazon?
The only discernible differences between the 2 products are the slight changes in physical appearance and product names (one is called Anker Premium and the other is called Anker Powerline+). Other than that, they are virtually & functionally the same.
PowerLine+ advertises 6000 bends, whereas the Premium Double-Braided Nylon advertise 5000 bends.
Odd, because Amazon advertises the Premium as the "newer model" when viewing the Powerline+. Why would the "newer model" have less advertised bends?
It is a newer model, but not the successor. PowerLine+ II is coming out soon.
Powerline II PLUS advertises 30,000 Bends. It is made from like stronger material and the wires inside are better quality so you do not lose charge from having a longer cable and so it supports they’re charging system.
Sight difference in look and quality
The Premium Double-Braided Nylon cable is just an upgrade for the Nylon Braided USB Cable, so it's hard to compare it with PowerLine+.They are a different series of products.
