Anker's Nano II USB-C Chargers Pack Up to 65W of Power in a Smaller Design

Anker today is introducing a new set of gallium nitride (GaN) USB-C chargers that offer fast charging speeds for mobile devices in a design that's smaller than ever. The new Nano II line is available in 30W, 45W, and 65W versions, and Anker says it has improved the chips and internal layout of its chargers to deliver greater efficiency while generating less heat.

The 30-watt charger measures in at just 31.5 mm by 30.4 mm and about 38 mm deep. (The UK versions of all three chargers are about 1.5 mm deeper due to their prong design.) It can fast-charge an iPhone or iPad, and even fully support the latest MacBook Air.

The 45-watt version offers a bit more power to be able to charge a wider variety of notebooks and other gadgets, and it measures 37.7 mm by 35 mm by about 41 mm. It also features foldable prongs to make it less likely to be damaged or to damage other items when tossed in together.

The 65-watt version can fully power devices all the way up to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and it too features foldable prongs. The charger measures 41.7 mm by 36 mm by about 44 mm.

All three chargers are available for preorder on Amazon and Anker.com for US customers, priced at $29.99, $35.99, and $39.99 respectively. Versions for UK and EU customers will be available at a later date.

I love my Anker gear but as they have succeeded with establishing themselves I've noticed how the prices have been ramping up.

Cool. Wish they put more ports on the larger charger though. An extra USB-C or USB-A port would be nice.

Perhaps due to the worldwide chip shortage? I am also going to guess they could make these cheaper if they made them bigger and took some short cuts.

My college has recently adopted a BYOD “bring-your-own-device“ policy for the film program that I teach in. The IT department’s “recommended device” list is really interesting. The Macs price-wise are on par for mid-range and slightly cheaper on the high end compared to recommended Windows based machines (you cannot bring the low-end options into our programme). Note the IT department, like many, is Windows focused so they know what they are looking for to meet required specs. We are not allowing students to build their own devices because NLEs tend to be very particular about hardware and I, for one, do not want to spend class time troubleshooting Windows Frankencomputers with students who are trying to save a few bucks on components that are “just as good“ as what is recommended.

Way too much time this last semester was spent troubleshooting problems with Windows GPU drivers and Adobe. Mac students were rightfully complaining about the amount of time I was spending helping the Windows students. And that is before the BYOD policy officially starts.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. Sorry I strayed off topic but to bring it back around the total cost of ownership is far too often ignored by people when making a purchase decision.

Agreed... that's one reason I always purchased 3rd-party chargers... more ports!

I've had a 5-port Anker on my desk for years. I charge all sorts of things with it.

The Air comes with 30W I don't imagine it would benefit you much upgrading to 65W! I didn't really see any speed increase when I used my Macbook Pro's 60W charger on the Air.
I use my 18watt iPhone usb-c charger for the MacBook air M1.. Slowly charging your battery is better, and I just do it overnight anyway with this notebook every few days...
