If you were waiting, or looking for the definite charger for your smart phones and devices, you have not looked at the wrong place. The Anker 40w 5-Port Charger with PowerIQ is now officially in TechGarage. What makes it more compelling is that we have brought in the 3 pin versions that fits right into your Malaysian socket, as compared to the 2 pin ones.
What makes us so excited about the Anker 40W 5-port charger?
First and foremost, it is the PowerIQ technology from Anker, which auto detects your device and the power it needs. Meaning, if you are charging your iPad, there is no need for a special iPad slot. The 5-port charger auto detects this and sends out 2.4A, ensuring your iPad gets charged at the same speed as the original iPad charger.
In this sense, Anker has solved the issue that has plagued many chargers (and power banks as well). Most of the time, it would only be geared towards either Apple or Android. Or for lower end chargers, they only charge at 1A maximum. Not brilliant, and it takes forever.
But through some brilliant engineering, the Anker 40W 5-port family charger is now capable of being the all in one charger you need, especially on trips where you get a headache on how to reduce weight, while accommodating for the various USB chargers. Even worse, as you sometimes happen to forget about it and leave it thousands of kilometres behind. I know, it has happened to me too. Sigh. Especially with my DSLR charger, the AA battery charger, the iPad charger and the various other USB chargers I would need to lug around.
But from now on, the Anker 40W charger would be all I would need. And perhaps all you would need as well. Do consider the possibilities 🙂
p/s : And that’s why we say Anker is the best power bank you can find in Malaysia. Most don’t come with something similar 🙂
By the way, to help you, here are recent reviews from the various websites gave the Anker 40W 5-Port Charger a glowing report card
“TheÂ Anker IQ 40W 5V / 8A 5-Port Family-Size USB power supplydoes what it says, quickly charging 5 USB devices simultaneously. It looks nice and very Apple-like. Thereâ€™s really very little downside here and at a few bucks more than Appleâ€™s single USB port adapter, it really is a no brainer if you need to charge a lot of devices at once.“Â Sean Weintraub, 9to5Mac.com, from their article, “Anker IQ 40W 5-port smart USB adapter is the last power source youâ€™ll everÂ need”
“I like it so much that the Anker 40W is my full-time charger at home too; it removes a lot of clutter from my kitchen counter.”Â Jason D. O. Grady, ZDNet.com, from their article, “Anker Power IQ 40W 5-port desktop charger (Verdict: Essential)”
“Anker calls it the worldâ€™s most powerful 5-port USB charger, and it probably is. Itâ€™s great for keeping every kind of USB constantly plugged in for a quick charge of one or many devices. Itâ€™s super convenient to not worry about finding the charger that came with your iPad or iPhone or Android. Really, the only thing the Anker 5-port is missing (other than a better name) is a way to make it a more permanent solution, like a mounting system or stand.” Scott Schaen, ChipChick.com
