Haven’t read it yet but I take a guess at better prices, build quality and listening to customer feedback faster…

Looks good, my morning reading with a cup of coffee sorted :smile: :thumbsup:

FYI we have one Apple fan in family, and the Anker charger and cable metered faster and better than the official charger and cable.

Since I had my first Astro portable charger, I considered that Anker was an excellent brand, it sells quality and you are happy and satisfied because you know that you will have it working for a long time… :heart_eyes:

Congratulations Anker for this success, you deserve it! :muscle:
