Stuff that works – Anker USB chargers

Anker logoFriends and colleagues that have travelled with me in recent times will undoubtedly have noticed that I’m a great fan of Anker electronics components.

Anker is a relatively new brand, at least on these shores, having appeared in the UK about 3-4 years ago. Through a combination of good clean design, comprehensive well thought-out feature sets, high-quality build and competitive prices. I first bought a multi-port USB charger from Anker perhaps 2.5 years ago, and it is still in daily use now, having taken a battering from the teenagers in the meantime!

Since then, I’ve gone on to acquire a really good dual-port 2A charger for the car, an excellent 15000mAh battery pack (now replaced by this 16000mAh version), a 9-port USB3.0 hub and several other USB chargers.  Being a family of seven currently with at least a dozen mobile devices, we need the power!

So why the post? I just spotted this deal advertised on Amazon and thought it worth mentioning.  The latest 6-port 60W USB charger is now available for just £25.99 from Amazon UK, a discount from the RRP of £59.99 – in the US it’s available at an even better $35.99.  Both the black and white variants are available at that price.

Whilst I don’t have the 6-port version, we have three of the older 5-port models and really rate them highly.  One of the nice features is that they run off a standard AC power lead, so it’s really easy to grab an cheap alternative lead for international trips, rather than having to carry a converter.

So… Highly recommended, great quality and at a super price right now.
