Is that a Micro-USB to USB-C cable in the picture or do I need to finish this cup of coffee first?

Good catch.
Also, it looks like the picture is being re-used from the 30W version.

Btw, this is really exciting. ThinkPads typically need at least 45W, so this is a very handy tool to keep in the laptop bag.

Awesome! My Chromebook refuses to charge consistently with anything less than 45 watts.

Just some thoughts. No dual input, I would think that would be ideal for a charger this large… No PowerIQ 3.0- since they’re already making such a beast of a charger, they should have just thrown this on top right?

Also a question. What material is it made of? I can’t tell if it’s plastic or metal.

And that price is just scary…

The 3.3 hours recharge is the most impressive part.

I have owned the 6 hour recharge 26800 and it barely gets used as it’s big and heavy. My 10000 PD 18W 4 hour recharge is my item to carry in a bag, the 5000 Slim is in my jacket pocket right now.

This is properly the most powerful “mobile” battery with PD from Anker. This one is legal to carry in your backpack on plane.

I like this. I don’t have anything that needs that kind of charging but it would be nice to have if I ever get something that needs that kind of charge.

It wouldn’t make much sense to have dual USB-C PD ports when the first one is less than 100W! :thinking:

Not so obvious… PowerIQ 3.0 makes less sense at higher wattages. 45W charging is targeted at laptops, which would not benefit from PowerIQ 3.0.

Completely disagree on this point. Why not make a charger more universal?

There are several reasons. PowerIQ 3.0 violates USB-IF spec. A lack of USB-IF certification causes some people not to buy it. Those who do not own any PowerIQ 3.0 chargers would be better off with just PD. So far, PowerIQ 3.0 chargers seem to cost a bit more than those with just PD.
