Update: Anker’s PowerDrive Speed+ 2 is now available to order on the Anker website. Here’s a link to the listing.
Anker’s lineup of car chargers is finally catching up with the latest charging technologies! Today, Anker is introducing PowerDrive Speed+ 2, the first of what is likely many PD car chargers to come. For example, we will probably be seeing PowerDrive II (in a white color like we saw at CES) within the next month or so, but regardless, today the focus is on PowerDrive Speed+ 2 with Power Delivery!
PowerDrive Speed+ 2 features one PowerIQ 2.0 port (it is unclear if this is the 18W or 19.5W version like in PowerDrive II 2 PD) and one Power Delivery port (30W output).
Here are some highlights from the Amazon listing:
One Charger, Any Device: Charge USB-C and standard USB phones and tablets, all from one travel-ready car charger.
Faster Than Fast: Power Delivery technology provides a blazing-fast charge to USB-C devices, while our flagship PowerIQ 2.0 technology pumps out full-speed charging for original USB.
Ultra-Compact: Smaller than a credit card, for unimpeded port access and the perfect fit in any vehicle.
Certified Safe: Anker’s MultiProtect safety system and full UL certification mean complete protection for you and your devices.
What You Get: PowerDrive II Car Charger, Welcome Guide, our worry-free 18-month warranty, and friendly customer service.
PowerDrive Speed+ 2 measures in at 2.6 x 1.4 x 1.4 inches. This is about the same size as PowerDrive Speed 2.
What do you think of PowerDrive Speed+ 2? Personally, I would like to see a version with two USB-C Power Delivery ports. Let us know all of your thoughts by dropping a reply down below!
It is nice to see, but I think I am more of a fan of Power Delivery for Wall Chargers (already offered by Anker).
While this has utility for many, I don’t think its for me. Good form factor though, I am sure many will enjoy.
Nice find! It will be nice to charge USB-C laptops in the car without a bulky inverter!
Hopefully Anker rolls out more of the wall chargers they showed off at CES sooner rather than later!
Also, with the standard price point (you are getting a PD and a Power IQ for $30, and the wall charger is exact same price) I hope to see a drop in wall charger price.
Ooh la la power delivery and power IQ 2.0, fancy.
I’m sure! Think I’m going to pick one up for our Sante Fe!
Yay I’m so happy Might be time for a new car charger now!
Yes, finally. I was literally just talking to my wife about this and how I need to get a new car charger that has USB c.
Wait you can charge your laptop with this? SWEEEEEEEEEEET
Nice find. Having a nice fast charge for my car would be nice but I already have several fast chargers (older models and not as fast) and several brands that came with tech gear I run in my vehicles.
I like the price and the promo cool makes a great deal. For me, I either want to replace my car chargers with a hub or have chargers that have multiple functions such as the ROAV chargers.
Anker is going all fancy on us
Yes! I’m in the road trip sometime and I really need this car charger to power my laptop…cos I usually work while traveling…
Did your wife allow you to buy one?
Not this time,because she allowed me to buy a new Anker battery pack with USB C. So for now I’ll just charge with that
Awesome, cant wait to pick up one of these for a USB C Battery pack killer combo from Anker!
I love this. I really like one full sized USB and one USB C. It is a good balance. And it means I do not have to buy new cables since I use a bunch of Anker USB to USB C
I still have no need for USB C so will stick with my PowerDrive Elite
