I travel extensively for work and have tried all types of charging solutions, cables, batteries, etc. What I can say for sure is every ounce counts that goes into the bag. I keep my various cords and other kit in smaller bags for easy access and use but over the years I’ve steadily reduced what I carry on trips. To that end I’ve worked to acquire devices that use similar connectivity. With so many connected devices these days, I see new products popping up from random places but I want something built by a company I know and trust. So I put to you all, what’s in your perfect travel charger? Lets see if we can give our friends at Anker some ideas to help make the best charger ever.
Weight: under a pound for sure, less than 8oz ideal, even less amazing
Capacity: Enough to charge the newest tech devices twice to include a phone (iphone 7+, galaxy 8+, etc) and watch (iwatch, Samsung, etc) or fitbit/other connected device
Charging: Rapid charge of connected devices (Q3, etc) and rapid recharging of the battery
Ports: USB-C, Micro-USB, USB AND magnetic watch wireless connection
Form factor: Small as possible is great but something along a iphone standard or galaxy 6/7 would be good
Bonus: A digital display to show charge status, time til empty at current draw rate, time til full at charge rate.
A bigger bonus: allow the user pick the port that gets priority charging. Use case: my watch is at 30% but my phone is at 70, I want the watch to take priority charging to achieve a full charge ahead of phone.
So lets hear it, what would everyone’s dream list be for a perfect charging solution?
