While we were lukewarm about the Fusion 5000 PD, it’s producing 18W from a single 5000mAh cell is telling me Anker has solved the heating problem with that level, and yet not using GaN yet.
So if 18W from 5Ah, so 100W from 26.8W is simple linear.
I do think they’ll need to put GaN within because the more cells in one chassis the less the cooling per unit volume, but in the Fusion they did have the AC-DC conversion in the same chassis so I think they can make this product.
Also in UK this is overdue a discount, I’d expect it shortly.
That coming would be a sign of shifting stock before the 100W behemoth cometh.
My ask, and why I am posting it publically, before Anker releases the product is they make it:
- intelligent two or three USB-PD output ports, based on priorities so say you can get two 45W out.
- a two USB-PD and a 3rd Type A does then allow you to for example two 45W and 15W.
- I know Wattage out is easier to get than Wattage in so I am cool with 60W in and 100W out. I’ll forgive you this. You’re welcome.
Similarly I expect Anker can:
- take the current 20Ah 18W out to 30W out. May need GaN.
- 10W 18W to 30W. Won’t need GaN, simply it’s shape should be suffice.
What price you pay for these? I’d expect the future Powercore 26800 100W to be launched at $140-$150, then drop to around the $120 after a couple of months and the very rare $90 for the lucky fast action members. Anker attempt to launch at a much higher price as they’d bundle with a to-be 100W PD charger they’d be separately launching around $100 mark, but if they did they’d get immediate backlash on price.
June is 8 months after the 45W Powercore 26800 and is then 2 months after China began relaxing lockdown so factories and supply chains are close to healed.
Posting now allows me to be very wrong but publically so I am brought down!
