No I don’t think they’re listening, I think this is marketing dept here to cause more stuff to be sold. There is a little bit of trickle back I expect to product managers but I think it is tiny.
This is the first product this year which may benefit me, it has the 45W PD for my Lenono laptop and an 15W IQ2 which is probably good for most of my other gadgets, but its still not intelligent enough.
Suppose I wanted to buy a Powercore which output PD, I’d want to share the 60W output based on need, e.g. a nearly empty laptop gets priority, til it approaches full, 85% typically, then it demands less and the 2nd port can take more. I could then all day use the laptop, keep it going with the Powercore and plug in laptop+Powercore when I get near a socket, knowing the laptop will get the maximum possible charge then the Powercore will get maximum possible charge using whatever the laptop does not need, and if I wait long enough, say overnight, both are charged.
PIQ3 but done intelligently, with a total power budget and multiple ports, with some prioritization so devices get priority over Powercore, is then the nirvana.
If they are shipping USB-C buds too then I’m still needing something more like a 3 or 4-port (laptop / tablet, Powercore, buds, phone). I’d not need any Type A ports then, USB-C buds, laptop, Powercore.
As physical size seems a function of Wattage, I’d want a small version 45W total, say 2-3 ports, a medium 60W 2-3 ports and a larger 100W 4 ports. The one I’d buy would probably be the 60W. This latest product comes close.
And thanks for letting us know to not buying - in my case I not really bought anything expensive charger wise from Anker for some time as its been excessively mediocre, slow, disappointing for a few years. I bought their 60W PD $36 as I needed to urgently a few months ago, yippee-do.
