PowerPort Atom Pd1 vs PowerPort C1

Hey guys I know we have been all hyped about the release of the PowerPort Atom Pd1 but in the latest Anker sales email they have a PowerPort C1 thAt also looks compact and has a USB port. I was wondering if the difference between them was the usb pd or other things or if they are the same. Thanks

The PowerPort Atom PD 1 supports Power Delivery while the PowerPort C 1 does not. Also, the Atom’s output is much higher, 30W vs 15W. Both are similar in size.


Thanks @joshuad11 so basically splurge the extra cash and get the faster one with pd and higher wattage! Rally appreciate the fast response!

Are we going to get the Atom in other countries?
Every photo shows a US adapter. #JustAsking

Hopefully a deal with the atom and new USB C to Lighting Cable.


You do need a device capable of the extra performance. USB PD is a negotiation of common voltage and current. That negotiation can chase to the bottom of one the device does not deem worthy. Or in other words - does not work. You need to confirm, from either detailed investigation, or a user review, it works for you. You could pay extra for a brick.

Anker is listing devices, these would be presumably devices verified working, check you have one of those devices.

Get the PowerPort Atom pd 1. Even though it’s a few dollars more expensive, I’m sure it will come in handy down the road
