Anker makes a lot of chargers and power banks. Now it adds a new hybrid to the lineup. The new Anker 3-in-1 Power Bank Fusion powers gadgets like iPhone on the go, or uses a built-in USB-C cable and a USB-C port to power devices when plugged in.

The device packs a 5000mAh battery with 22.5W output as a power bank. And when you plug it in with its folding prongs, it outputs 30W to attached devices even as it recharges its own battery.

On the device you’ll find the built-in USB-C cable plus a USB-C port on top. So that’s a 2-in-1 design for juicing up two devices at once. And it’s a 3-in-1 when you plug it in to charge the device itself while you charge other gadgets.

And Anker 3-in-1 Power Bank Fusion lets you know how it’s battery is doing. An LED display states the current battery capacity as a percentage of full.

Fusion features:

  • 3-in-1 charging lets you transition between devices (includes USB-C port, an integrated USB-C cable and a foldable AC plug).
  • Built-in USB-C cable
  • Two-way fast charging: Plug in for a 30W charge to power your devices quickly, or switch to battery mode for a consistent 22.5W charge.
  • Power bank recharging options: an AC plug or the built-in USB-C cable

Here’s what comes in the box: the power bank/wall charger (30W, built-in USB-C cable), welcome guide and an 18-month warranty.

Power Bank Fusion comes with a launch discount. That’s not unusual for Anker. So you can buy the $40 for $33.99 while the discount lasts. And that’s in effect at Anker as well as Amazon.

Where to buy: Anker or Amazon

It’s similar to the Belkin BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger 25W + Power Bank 5K, another charger/battery combination.
