New power bank also wants to charge MacBooks › jojo Reviews

With the Portable Charger 347, Anker is now also selling its flagship power bank with a capacity of 40,000 mAh in Germany. The battery, which is available in black or white and starts at EUR 149.99, is designed so that you can also charge the battery of your notebook on the go.

The proud performance data is no coincidence. The battery, also marketed by Anker under the name PowerCore 40K, measures 16.7 x 8.5 x 4.6 centimeters and can rightly be described as a “briquette”, especially in the black version. In return, the manufacturer promises that the MacBook Air 2020 can be topped up to 2.3 times on a single battery charge, and the capacity of the Anker 347 charger is said to be nearly nine times enough to charge the iPhone 13.

The maximum output power via USB-C of 30 watts also enables the use of the fast charging function of the iPhone models. Measured by Anker with the iPhone 13, the smartphone can be charged more than half in just 28 minutes. In general, the newly available Anker battery has two USB-A and USB-C ports each, which can be used to power up to four devices at the same time.

Soft charging mode for headphones and the like

Incidentally, like most more expensive power bank models, the Anker Portable Charger 347 also has a “soft charging mode” for accessories with low power consumption. In this context, the manufacturer mentions devices such as AirPods and other headphones or earphones, as well as Bluetooth speakers, that can be charged at a lower power to avoid damaging or overcharging the integrated batteries. This reduced charge mode can be activated by pressing the power button on the battery twice.

The Anker 347 Powerbank (PowerCore 40K) is now available in Germany with the model number A1377. At the start of the sale you have to take into account slightly longer delivery times, currently five to six working days are given for shipping.
