CES 2022: Anker Introduces New Charging Solutions, Smart Home Accessories, and More
Popular charging accessory company Anker today is announcing two new charging solutions, starting with the new Anker 736 Charger, also known as the Nano II 100W. The Anker 736 features 100 watts of total charging power and is equipped with two USB-C ports and a USB-A port to allow for charging three devices simultaneously.
Anker says the 736 is the world's smallest 100-watt GaN wall charger that doesn't compromise on charging power, and it features PowerIQ 3.0 technology for optimized charging. GaN II technology delivers double the operating frequency of traditional GaN, along with an updated stacked design and an upgraded circuit board for maximum efficiency.
The Anker 736 will be priced at $79 and will be available starting in March.
Anker's second product announcement for CES is the Anker 535 Portable Power Station, also known as the PowerHouse 512Wh. As the name suggests, this is a rather large portable power station with a multiple of ports for powering all sorts of devices while camping, during power outages, and in other scenarios where you need to power a lot of devices while off the grid.
The power station features four AC outlets supporting up to 500 watts total, as well as a 60-watt USB-C port, three USB-A ports, one DC/cigarette lighter output port, and a light bar to help illuminate your surroundings. The unit can be charged from 0 to 80% in under two and a half hours.
The Anker 535 is priced at $499 and is available starting today.
Beyond those two charging solutions, Anker has several other product announcements today under its other brands.
The first is the AnkerWork B600 Video Bar, an all-in-one package that integrates a video camera, speakers, microphone array, and dimmable key light for video conferencing. The camera supports 2K video at 30 fps with auto focus and image enhancements, while AI-powered "VoiceRadar" technology helps provide clear audio in noisy environments. The B600 launches on January 25 and is priced at $219.99.
Anker's eufy brand has a couple of smart home product announcements although they aren't compatible with Apple's HomeKit ecosystem.

The second eufy announcement is the Security Garage-Control Cam, which offers not only remote control garage door access but also includes a camera to monitor what's going on in your garage in real time with 32GB of local storage.
