The Wait is Over For Wireless Wonderment

I’m not sure what you mean a world without a bunch of cables… You still have to have a cable to power the pad/stand. With this setup, I can’t use my old charger that has the power to charge these devices I have to use the over sized plug. That old charger and cable will get tossed in the retired tech box I purchased the new pad the other day and that’s what happened.

Plus that plug and transformer are freaking huge. The bottom of the transformer blocks the lower plug so it always has to be in the lower outlet and it sticks pretty far from the wall.

Other than that I like the pad and I will have a review for it soon. It seems faster than my older Anker charging pads.


Seem like good wireless chargers. I already own too many though

Nice new release!

Good for wireless charging :+1: I’m not there yet :neutral_face:

I love wireless charging

Thanks for the suggestion, for the reason of cost and also because we want to provide more matching and stable inputs, so we chose DC Power Cord.:innocent:


I love the freedom of wireless charging and hope it can be carried over to the battery line for mobile wireless charging!

Wireless portable charging has to suffer that wireless is 2/3rds the efficiency of wired.

So say a 10000mAh $20 Powercore becomes a $30 15000mAH Powercore.

Where it makes most sense is to charge something much smaller from something much bigger where in absolute terms the 1/3rd loss is small.

So say recharging wireless buds, or its case.

The tipping point is going to happen in 2020 as some phones become fully wireless, no physical ports, no USBC no headphones, eSim.

Then those phone buyers want wireless everything.

I’m steadily switching all my wireless stands and pads to usb-c as a substitute of getting man or woman power supply…

Me too - I fully expected this to be usb-c

We could have used our own PD charger and leave that DC adapter out.

That’s the convenience and simplicity of using USB-C PD. And one less Adapter to carry if you transport this device.

Even if Anker make it IQ3 input.

I agree, Anker is part of the problem too often, selling items with non-PD input. But see it from their PoV. That 24W charger from an OEM cost them in the region of $2-$3. If they made the pad have a PD or IQ3 port rather than a dumb 12V 2A port they’d have to add some voltage regulation and buck-boost converter, adding about $2-$3 to the cost so the net product price would be about the same and require a port from a PD charger. That per-port cost to us currently around the $15 level so we’d be roughly $15 worse off.

What is requires is us the consumers deciding to not buy it to force behaviour change, because cost is usually the first choice and then for same-cost then quality / reviewer ranking.

Totally agree.

I’m just tired of the slow response to USB-C worldwide. It’s been around for a few years and NOT yet universal, thanks in part by Apple’s slow Lightning port and the ancient use of Micro USB.

The less adapters we have to carry, the better.

5ft power cord

Why so short?

Come on @AnkerTechnical that’s a silly length of.cable. considering most units are at least 3ft high plus, you are stuck as to where you can place this.

I notice generally your leads are shorter than what others offer.

It’s because its 2A. You’d need thicker so more expensive cable. It would be, ohh, 1 pence more, possibly 2 pence more to manufacture.

You’re typing well enough.

It takes me a while, but between my right thumb, and left index, I’m not too bad, just a little slower!

I got two of these on the BoGo offer and the second actually came last week. I’m using this now heavily on my at home make shift work station.

Nice must give it a try

Would love to see these chargers in a dark blue color
