Anker, great brand, great customer service, great community, love the competition, giveaways, Bucks.
But back to basics: this is a technology.
Powerhouse can be so much more.
Powerhouse, because of its size, the size of its DC-DC input and DC-DC output, should be able to take any kind of input, and offer any kind of output.
Powerhouse should be able to offer an efficient recharge and discharge from anything to anything.
When combined with solar, any kind of input, then it can be recharged from any kind of solar panel.
Anker uses Sunpower solar panels, a good sweetspot of efficiency and cost.
Anker could offer more USB-C options, so instead of two 2A outputs, one >2A output, to recharge higher power items.
This is the future, it will become the de-facto for Apple and Qualcomm QuickCharge is converging into USB-PD
More USB-C input and output
USB-C input and output Powercore from the Mini upwards
USB-PD input and output from 10000mAh upwards. So a 15W input 10Ah, a 15W output 5Ah, a 30A input 20Ah, 60W output 20Ah, a 60W input 27Ah, a 100W output 27Ah.
USB-C input audio - Soundbuds, Soundcores
USB-C input torches
USB-C input and output converged torches and portable chargers
USB-C input and output portable charges from the “lipstick” upto 100Wh
Anything usb C, ANYTHINGGG
im too eager to switch to usb-c, let it be the norm!
Sound! I’m sure we’re not far off from this, but I cannot wait to be able to cover my home in speakers that all work together to pump out the same music harmoniously at an affordable cost. I have yet to get an Anker speaker, but it’s on the bucket list of products I’d like to own.
I think every power bank from now on should have USB-C.
If people are hesitant about the switch, they can buy one of the older models that are still very functional. Anker doesn’t usually stop selling products for a couple years after release.
How long does it take the solar panels to charge a phone
In “regular sunshine” a solar panel rated 21W will output about 5W so a typical phone at 12Wh will take 2.5 hours.
In perfect conditions, it takes less.
Given you can elect to use solar in perfect conditions, then nearer to 10W is possible than you are expecting nearer to a little over an hour.
Smaller solar panels will be more often incapable of recharging a phone.
@hunho.lee10 @TheCharneco @joshuad11 @nigelhealy We will make great effort to achieve your expectations!
How about Anker starts making Head-Up windshield Display!!
yeah something similar…Check this out!!
Is ROAV anker product or is it a third party anker supported product
A few days ago we revealed an automotive product from Anker called Roav. At the time, it seemed the Roav was an in-vehicle heads-up display that looked a lot like the Navdy. Today, Anker reached out with additional details. Roav, when it launches in...
Est. reading time: 1 minute
I don’t particularly drive and my last car I bought had lots of tech built-in so I didn’t particularly track this product, I know there was a beta and it then went quiet. Others will know more who signed up for the Roav HUD. They for sure launched a camera though!
Powercore 1300-c ,powercore 26800 pd USB c
USB-C has to explode in availability now in the next few months.
If you have multiple devices (phone, tablet / laptop, earbuds, charger, portable charger) then a USB-C to USB-C solution has a lot less cable bulk.
@joshuad11 for the link.
Does powercore 1300 c use usb c for input only? Says for MacBook and Nintendo switch witch use usb c.
Obviously you can use USB-C output via the right cable.
My criticism is about cable volume and performance.
An output port of this type
is a physically bigger cable than
Is bigger than this
What I’m seeking is “USB-C” everywhere so I can literally carry:
a BT earbuds with USB-C input
a Powerport with USB-C output like a Powerport2 or Powerport4 with most or all ports USB-C
a Powercore with USB-C input and USB-C output
just USB-C to USB-C cables.
Then just do this in the small to large options:
2 ports chargers
4 port chargers
5 port chargers
Portable chargers, a USB-C output lipstick
portable chargers, a USB-C 5000mAh
portable charges, a USB-C 10000mAh
portable chargers, a USB-C 20000mAh
portable chargers, a USB-C 26800mAh (technically: 100Wh limit)
There are performance limitations related to size but reasonable:
Powerport2 USB-C: 24W, so one or two USB-C output ports, if you used 1 port then it goes up to 24W.
Powerport4 USB-C: 40W, so two or three port USB-C output, 1 port it goes to 40W, 2 ports fight over 40W, etc.
Powerport5 USB-C: 40W, 2 or 3 or 4 USB-C, fight over 40W
Powercore lipstick: one port, realistically it is a 10W output
Powercore 10000mAh: a single output port in the 15W-20W region.
Powercore 20000mAh: dual ports, input 20W, outputs 40W.
Powercore 26800mAh (100Wh) : two or three ports, input 30W-60W, output combined 60W-100W, max per port 60W.
