Mobile charging product supplier Anker Innovations showcased the latest products in its multi-brand portfolio at its RE Charge product unveiling event in New York City in mid-June.
Consumers have expressed desires for ways to power their devices quickly, efficiently, and compactly, and a company spokesperson remarked that these devices are “competing for space in their chargers”, and in response, the company launched the Anker Prime premium high-speed, multi-port product series.
The Anker Prime series includes the new 67-, 100- and 250-watt USB-C chargers and the 250-watt ultra-high-capacity (+27,000 mAh) power bank featuring a 100w wireless charging base. They are due out in July, along with their pricing details. The Anker Reserve Power Bank was also unwrapped as a tool to meet outdoor charging needs (available now; $169.99). It includes a 60,000 mAh LiFeP04 battery, two USB-C ports, and two USB-A ports, as well as a standard XT 60 solar plug that is compatible with solar panels ranging from 10 to 24 volts. It further features a pop-up adjustable lantern and an integrated SOS button as added conveniences for campers.
Anker also announced the company’s foray into the home energy solutions business via one of its newest ventures: Anker SOLIX. Anker SOLIX was unveiled in New York around the same time as the Intersolar 2023 event in Germany, and it includes a line of solar home balcony solutions aimed at apartment dwellers as well as solar battery storage systems for the home. The company also announced a grouping of PowerHouse portable power stations that will now be part of the Anker Solix family.
The Anker SoundCore premium audio brand announced the company’s next generation of Liberty True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds, the Liberty 4 NC, which will begin shipping at the end of June 2023 and will start retailing at $99.99. They use an 11mm driver and feature Adaptive ANC 2.0 technology, which employs both in-ear and external sound sensors. They can therefore adjust their performance in response to the characteristics of the surrounding environment. Anker says they can block out up to 98.5 percent of external noise and can provide 10 hours of playtime and 50 hours of playtime with the wireless charging case.
