Anker introduced a new potent-but-weenie little GaN charger to it lineup Wednesday, the Anker 47W Nano 3. It packs more power than the company’s 30W Nano chargers, adds a most-welcome second USB-C port and comes in three colors.

And it also comes with a 15% off launch discount — $34 instead of the regular $40, a savings of $6.

Anker 47W Nano 3 GaN charger

It’s nice that the new Nano packs a little more juice than the 30W Nano, but its top new feature is the second USB-C port, making two instead of one. So you can power up two devices at once with the tiny wall charger featuring gallium nitride (GaN) technology.

GaN packs more into less space, resulting in smaller charger that pack real power and charge safely.

The charger gives up to 45W of power to one device, which is good for larger devices like MacBooks. If you charge two devices at once, one port provides 27W and the other offers 20W, according to Anker. That will certainly cover your iPad and iPhone, too.

Like its predecessors, the adapter features a folding plug for easy transport. A similar option to this Nano would be the 40W, dual USB-C port version Anker shipped in late 2021.

You can get this Nano in white, black or blue colors. The launch promo knocks $6 off the regular price of $39.99.
