Anker Party! - aka PowerExtend Strip 12 Review

Anker PowerExtend Strip 12:

You can visit the product page above for the specs, photos, and other details. I will describe quick pros and cons of that device PLUS pros/cons of some of the other Anker products in the photo/video below.

IT’S AN ANKER PARTY!!!

Video:

(Pardon the low volume; baby was sleeping in the next room.)

There are:
7 chargers (PowerExtend, PowerPort, PowerWave).
4 batteries
3 audio devices
2 video devices
14 cables
plus 2 easter egg products
TOTAL: 32 Anker products

I have another ~20 Anker products not shown (more eufycams, battery doorbell, scale, speakers, ~5 batteries, more cables).

PowerExtend Strip 12
Pros: 12 outlets! 1875W output!! 2x4000 Joules protection!!! Ok, in all likelihood, you probably don’t need to understand the watts and joules. Just know that this can handle a lot. The flat plug. The 3 lights by the power switch is pretty cool as they give you confidence that the PowerExtend is protecting your devices. The 6 outlets on each side are nicely spread out. It’s got this matte texture that is great, and it’s pretty to look at.
Cons: The plug could be flatter. It sticks out almost an inch. No USB ports is a huge disappointment. I can’t imagine buying a power strip these days without at least 2 USB ports.

Anker PowerPort Strip PD 2 mini
Pros: It’s mini. It has 2 outlets, 2 USB-A, and 1 USB-C PD (18W). Flat plug (identical to the one found on PowerExtend). Sturdy cord. Awesome for travelling.
Cons: Might not be enough outlets/plugs if you have many devices. Either travel light, or you’ll need another power strip.

Anker PowerPort Cube
Pros: 3 outlets and 3 USB-A ports. Great for travel. We have 3 of these.
Cons: No USB-C PD. The button to activate USB ports (why??). Few times, I forgot to press the button, and my device never got charged.

eufy 720p Video Baby Monitor
I did a quick review here:

Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 PD
Pros: 20000 is a lot of juice. 18W USB-C PD. Sleek matte exterior.
Cons: Maybe one more USB-A port would be nice? It’s quite bulky and heavy.

Soundcore Liberty Air 2
Pros: USB-C charging plus wireless charging. Yes, that is currently being charged by the PowerWave Pad in the photo/video. Sounds great. Secure fit thanks to the EarTips. Super long lasting battery life.
Cons: Connection setup is really wonky. The noise reduction technology is lacking, especially when comparing to active noise cancellation.

I’m annoyed that I still need all those micro-USB cables. The eufy products, PowerWave Pad, Soundcore Neo, and the older batteries all use micro-USB. I’ve replaced most of my older batteries with newer ones that use USB-C. I probably have like 7 USB-C batteries and 3 micro-USB batteries.
