BELLEVUE, Wash., May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Anker, the global leader in charging technology, unveiled today the latest generation of its proprietary PowerIQ fast-charging chips: PowerIQ 3.0. These new chips make the USB-C ports on Anker's chargers and portable batteries compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and Power Delivery up to 100W, enabling them to charge virtually any USB-C device at its fastest possible speed.
The Anker PowerPort+ Atom III (Two Ports) is the first wall charger with PowerIQ 3.0. It can output a total of 60W via its USB-A and USB-C ports. Like other entries in the Atom series, it uses highly-efficient GaN (gallium nitride) semiconductors instead of silicon. This allows for a significantly reduced size compared to traditional chargers—15% smaller than a MacBook 60W stock charger.
"The fast-charging capability of mobile devices is now faster than ever thanks to USB-C, but the industry continues to get fragmented due to manufacturers choosing different fast-charging protocols for their products, which creates confusion," said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations. "With PowerIQ 3.0, the latest generation of Anker chargers and batteries can communicate with all of these protocols, allowing them to identify and fast-charge any device, from laptops and tablets to smartphones and even PD compatible gaming consoles like the Nintendo Switch™. From now on, consumers can rely on a single charger to charge virtually all of their devices fast."
The Anker PowerPort+ Atom III (Two Ports) is available now on Amazon.com for $42.99. More details on the entire lineup of PowerIQ 3.0 products will be announced in the coming weeks.
