Anker rolled out eight new chargers Tuesday, including a 240-watt USB-C charger and a 250-watt power bank for fast-charging multiple devices.
The company said its new high-speed, multi-port chargers take good advantage of gallium nitride, aka GaN, technology, referring to efficient power transfer, compact design and active heat reduction.

New Anker Prime chargers
The Anker Prime lineup‘s 240W GaN charger works well with high-performance laptops. The 250W power bank, which is also available in two lower-watt models, can include an optional 100W charging base.
The compact charging base lets you wirelessly charge the power bank and also works as a standalone charger.
In addition, the Anker Prime series includes a 100W charger and a 67W charger, as well as a compact 6-in-1 charging station.
“When you are on the road with a phone, a tablet, a smartwatch, headphones, and a laptop — how often have you had to make a choice about which product to keep powered on?” asked Steven Yang, CEO of Anker. “Our latest Anker Prime Series has taken a leap forward in delivering charging accessories that not only charge everything faster but also cater to the growing demands of today’s diverse devices.
“With the Anker Prime Series, Anker continues its mission to charge everything, anywhere, faster and all at once; empowering users with unrivaled power, portability and performance,” he added.
Anker Prime 240-watt GaN Desktop Charger
This is Anker’s most powerful USB-C charger ever, the company said. It provides three USB-C ports and one USB-A port. It can charge two MacBook Pros, an iPhone and an iPad simultaneously at high speed. But it’s only a touch bigger than the original single-port 140W laptop charger.
Anker Prime 250-watt Power Bank
With a 27,000mAh capacity and 250W of power output, the bank can charge an iPhone 14 almost five times on a single charge. Using the Anker app, you can optimize charging, monitor charging status and locate the bank using Bluetooth. The Anker Prime power bank is compatible with a wireless charging base. Or you can choose from 200W and 130W power banks.
Wireless 100-watt Charging Base
The Anker Prime 250W power bank also comes with a game-changing wireless 100W charging base. It can also serve as a 3-port, 100W charger. It works with the three power bank models. You can get it bundled with the 250W power bank or buy it separately.
Anker Prime 67-watt GaN Charger
The portable Anker Prime 67W charger packs three ports. It can easily power up a 15-inch MacBook Air. Anker said it’s 51% smaller than the original single-port 67W charger.
Anker Prime 100-watt GaN Charger
The charger’s three ports let you quickly charge a MacBook Pro and an iPad Pro. Notably, it is 45% smaller than Apple’s original single-port 96W charger. Both the 67W and 100W Anker Prime GaN chargers have been redesigned to sit compact and snug against an AC wall outlet.
Anker Prime 6-in-1 Charging Station
The upgraded charging station increases the previous model’s 100W to 140W. A new smart display lets you monitor device charging status. Using the device’s two AC outlets and 140W of plug-in power, you can juice up to four devices at once.
