If you own one of those new computers that can charge via USB-C, then you know the charging convenience it brings, as it frees you from the massive power bricks that usually accompanied our laptops. I mean, if you’ve lugged around a laptop for over a decade, you can definitely appreciate that you can now power it using a small hub like Anker’s PowerPort+ 5.
A five-port USB hub, it comes with one USB-C charging port and four standard USB ports, allowing you to charge a MacBook or a Chrome Pixel while juicing up the rest of your mobile gadgets. Whether you’re working from home, out of a hotel, or in a Starbucks somewhere, this thing lets you charge all your devices from just a single outlet.
The Anker PowerPort+ 5 can charge USB-C laptops at a full 29W, a whopping two times the speed of conventional USB-C chargers. Do note, Macbook fast-charging won’t work if you combine it with the Multiport Adapter, so you’ll have to be directly connected to get the best results. All four standard USB ports come with Anker’s PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies, so it should provide the fastest charge possible for any mobile device. It comes with advanced features to protect your gadgets, too, including surge protection, short-circuit protection, over-current protection, and temperature control, so everything you charge on the hub should be safe.
Available now, the Anker PowerPort+ 5 is priced at $37.39.
