Anker GaNPrime High Watt Chargers Launched: 120W 737 Charger for £90 & 65W 735 Charger for £55

Sharing is caring!

I love high-watt multi-port chargers, it makes life so much easier having one charger that can charge multiple devices at the same time, including laptops.

I recently reviewed the 200W Ugreen Nexode, which is the most powerful charger on the market, but it is a bit big and very much designed for the desktop.

If you want something more compact and perhaps travel-friendly, then Anker has launched some new GaN chargers with additional features, which they are branding as GaNPrime.

These range from 65W up to 150W but at the moment, only two models are launching in the UK, the 65W and 120W models.

Disappointingly, the US get the more interesting products. The Anker 733 Power Bank is a combination charger and power bank. Then the Anker 727 Charging Station is both a high watt charger and also socket extension with two plug sockets.

Update: The press release failed to mention that the Anker 737 Power Bank was launching in the UK, and it looks pretty good with a massic 140W output from a single port and 24,000mAh battery capacity.

Press Release

Anker today unveiled its new generation of Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology, GaNPrime. Combining the latest in GaN technology with Anker's own proprietary features, GaNPrime allows for a safer, faster and more sustainable charging experience.

“GaNPrime represents a new era in charging,” said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations. “In addition to delivering a faster and safer charging experience, our new GaNPrime chargers offer significant savings in energy consumption, reinforcing Anker's commitment to a more sustainable future.”

GaNPrime Explained

GaN, or Gallium Nitride, is a compound found in modern satellites and radar. In 2018, Anker pioneered the application of this material in charging devices to develop smaller, lighter chargers. GaNPrime features the latest in GaN technology adding to it:

·       Green Tech: Through Anker's innovative application of GaN technology, GaNPrime chargers are smaller and consume less energy compared to silicone-based chargers2

·       PowerIQ™ 4.0: When charging multiple devices at once, PowerIQ 4.0 intelligently detects the power needs of each connected device, automatically adjusting power distribution to reduce overall charging time by up to 1 hour. 

·       ActiveShield™ 2.0: Intelligently monitors temperature and adjusts power output to prevent overheating and safeguard connected devices. Compared to previous generations, ActiveShield 2.0 has an increased temperature detection frequency of 76%. 

·       Compact Architecture Design: Featuring Anker's proprietary mini-transformer technology, GaNPrime products are up to 53% smaller compared to silicon laptop chargers, and thanks to its increased power output, a single GaNPrime device can easily charge up to 4 or even 6 devices at the same time, depending on the charger. It is the perfect companion for those on the go. 

GaNPrime and USB-C Make Charging More Sustainable

The benefits of GaNPrime don't end with device charging. Perhaps the most exciting benefit of GaNPrime is its increased power efficiency. With each charge, consumers save on average more than 7% in energy consumption compared to legacy silicon chargers. To put it in context, if everyone in the United States used the 150W GaNPrime charger for a year, we could save up to 796 million kilowatt-hours. That would be enough energy to power the entire state of Hawaii for one month.

Additionally, as one of the first consumer technology leaders to advocate for the universal adoption of USB-C, Anker is committed to designing products that are compatible with a vast range of devices. Because a single GaNPrime charger and USB-C cable can be used to power over 1,000 different mobile devices, this eliminates the need to own multiple chargers and substantially reduces the amount of e-waste created by older or proprietary device chargers.
