Anker launches new 30W USB-C Nano 3 charger and bio-based charging cables
Popular accessory brand Anker today announced a pair of charging accessories, led by a new 511 Nano 3 USB-C charger using the company’s latest GaN technology. The Nano 3 packs 30 watts of charging power into a package only slightly larger than Apple’s meager 5-watt USB-A charger and 70% smaller than Apple’s 30-watt USB-C charger.
Equipped with foldable pins for portability and travel protection, the Nano 3 is available in five colors: black, white, blue, green and purple. It also includes Anker’s ActiveShield 2.0 technology to intelligently monitor temperature and adjust charging output to prevent overheating. With support for PowerIQ 3.0 and Programmable Power Supply (PPS), it offers optimized fast charging to a range of devices.
The Anker Nano 3 Charger launches today on Amazon with a regular price of $22.99 in the US, but there’s a 10% introductory discount until September 19.
Complementing the Nano 3, Anker is also releasing new eco-friendly USB-C to Lightning and color-matched USB-C to USB-C cables in 3ft and 6ft lengths.
Built to withstand over 20,000 bends in the lab, the new Anker 541 Lightning and 543 USB-C cables boast an industry-first eco-friendly design with cable exteriors made from 40% bio-based materials derived from plants like corn and sugar cane. A color-matched cable sleeve made of the same material also helps keep the cable tidy. Finally, the cables use 90% less plastic in their packaging with a pulp-based inner tray and 100% recyclable wrapping paper with soy ink printing.
The 541 USB-C to Lightning cable is MFi-certified, and when paired with a powerful enough charger like the Nano 3, it can charge an iPhone 13 from 0-50% in 30 minutes. The 543 USB-C to USB-C cable features E-Marker chips to enable communication between connected devices and chargers and supports up to 100 watts of charging power.
The new bio-based cables are also launching today with the 541 Lightning versions priced at $18.99 for a 3ft cable and $21.99 for a 6ft cable and the 543 USB-C versions priced at 16 $.99 (3 feet) and $19.99 (6 feet).
Anker will also sell bundles of the Nano 3 with the matching 6-foot USB-C to Lightning cable for $37.99, but only in white and purple.
