Anker has traditionally focused on Apple device users. The company produces accessories for MagSafe, a hub for iMac with M1 and other devices for “apple” fans. Unsurprisingly, the new power bank is also advertised with Apple in mind: Anker claims it’s a great way to recharge your MacBook on the go (although Dell, Samsung, and other laptops are also supported).

Using a MagSafe cable, a 16-inch MacBook Pro can be charged to 50% in just 40 minutes at 140W with Power Delivery 3.1. The technology is supported in both USB-C connectors, their capabilities are equivalent. There is also USB-A with a maximum power of 18W. To protect against overheating, ActiveShield 2.0 technology is provided.

Another feature of the PowerCore 24K is a really informative display. It shows the charge level in percent, the power used by each of the ports, as well as the time to fully discharge or charge. By the way, the maximum input power is also 140 W, so you won’t have to charge the power bank for half a day.

Anker PowerCore 24K was priced at $150 (≈9,100 rubles). It has already gone on sale in the US, and should soon reach AliExpress.
