Interesting to ask about travel. I used to travel a lot and then covid happened. haven’t done much travel since except some hiking trips a couple of hours away but nothing huge to make me think I qualify as a traveler. but I am also not home or just at work all the time usually I’m out with friends (i am the designated person to bring a portable charger or two and cables to charge everyone )
Short survey for me. We have an OLD macbook in the house, so I checked that initially. But on page two realized it was asking about devices and travel - I have a dell laptop for all my work trips, would never take the macbook. And don’t have any other apple devices anymore. So I went back and checked “none of the above” on page 1, and the survey was promptly over.
Feel like there is a disproportionate amount of design time and energy focused on apple users at Anker. They must make money doing it or it wouldn’t happen, but still seems like a lot. And aimed at relatively low power users as well.
Free product suggestion - a USB-C power supply, 2 ports, that can simultaneously provide 90W to my computer and 18-24W to my samsung phone. For extra credit, do one with three ports. I don’t need a USB-A port at all.
The closest you currently get is the 736 - which has an unnecessary USB-A port, and becomes a 45, 60 or 80W charger for my PC if two or more devices are plugged in. But even that one is sold out. There are a lot of people who really do want all the power at once.
An update to the 623 (Extension cord with outlets and a USB Charger) to include a 100W output that could work along with a 20W phone charging outlet would also be a good choice. There are lots of possibilities.
To quote Tim “The Toolman” Taylor - we want MORE POWER.
Fact is I have lots of legacy ports needs. A workaround is to use usbA from my Powercore which is what I’m doing when minimalist traveling, but for longer trips I still need usbA for plenty (watch, flashlight, glasses, etc).
I own plenty of usbA ports so I’m not really asking for them at a premium.
The Fossil smartwatch proprietary charging puck is USB-A, the Soundcore proprietary charging cable is USB-A. They’re the cause of my need, but I can get by either using their 2 port USB-A “mini” type chargers, or one of the others I’ve bought over the years, or their Powercore USB-A, so I certainly could get by just buying USBC exclusively.
@AnkerOfficial With the brand Anker and sister companies have built, we always expect a “bit” more from Anker… Typos… Typos are the last thing to be expected from Anker at this stage of branding and surveys…
