Hey Anker fans,
We had our first meetup right here in our Seattle-area home, and we had a great time with those who attended. We showcased a ton of products, had a meeting with one of our charging product managers, Gary, and even played an Anker version of Jeopardy!
We met up with our fans near our Bellevue offices, in which we would happily spend the evening talking products, thoughts for the future, and just getting to know one another.
We started it off with introductions and a little history of Anker. As you probably know, we used to be a laptop battery company before growing to what we are now. We even brought one of these first-edition batteries with us!
A couple highlights from this portion included PowerPort Atom PD 4 and PowerHouse 200. The fans were quite excited about the PowerPort Atom PD 4 because they had been looking for a 2-port Power Delivery charger from us for quite some time. The PowerHouse 200 was something that hadn’t been seen up-close before by many of the fans as well, so they were happy to be able to see its dimensions and features up close.
We then called up Gary, one of our Anker charging product managers, who filled us in on the latest thoughts regarding wireless charging. He explained how, despite it not being as fast as cable charging now, it would become the way we charge our phones in the future. This sparked a discussion regarding the future of wireless technology, and why we think it’s worth investing in now.
From here, we moved on to play Anker trivia. Four teams were pit against one another, answering questions about Anker products, Anker, and tech in general in a Jeopardy-like format. The winners each received an Infini Pro. Suffice it to say, it wasn’t close. Xin and David both hit it out of the park, fortifying their reputations as true Anker fans.
From here, we dipped back into a showcase of some new Soundcore products. We showed Infini Pro, Rave, Rave Mini, Icon, and Icon Mini. Highlights from this portion included the Infini Pro, which we were able to demo for fans, and the Rave/Rave mini - there was some discussion regarding the beach/pool party/tailgating potential of these speakers and the amount of watts within each of them garnered a “wow” out of some fans.
Overall, the meetup went incredibly well and there was a feeling of inspiration from the staff. We were definitely excited to get to meet you all and we’re hoping to do another one very soon. Based on what you’ve seen here, what do you think we should include in future Anker meetups? Let us know in the comments below!
