What's the difference between PowerCore+ and II?

Good morning everyone!

Apologies in advance if this simple question has already been answered, but what’s the difference between the Anker PowerCore+ and PowerCore II range?

The PowerCore+ focuses on USB-C charging (Macbooks, Nintendo Switch, etc).

The PowerCore II features Anker’s new Power IQ 2.0 technology which can adapt to Quick Charge-compatible devices while still being compatible with iPhones, iPads and Android devices.

Thanks Ryan @TechnicallyWell, the appearance of PowerCore+ also design with metal material, this is also different from PowerCore II.

Mostly.

There is Powercore II which isn’t IQ2

I can’t use Anker product names as meaningful

It says on the website that it is Power IQ 2.0 but it only has 10W output. Maybe that’s a limitation by the size of the 6700
