Digital Camera World Verdict

The Anker Nano is a very cute power bank, with a color to suit nearly everyone. The built-in USB-C cable is also a lifesaver as I can never find a cable when I really need one, using it as a carry handle is also a nice touch and the connection feels secure enough to do so, and will hopefully survive long-term use. The capacity is a little small to get the battery down to this pocketable size, although it will give your phone around two recharges. The additional USB outputs are appreciated for a battery emergency, but will just drain this power bank's small tank even quicker.

Anker has reinvented its Nano range as a new series of products encompassing chargers and power banks of all sizes, and as the name hints at, the connecting theme of the new Nano series is that all these devices are small. Why the new line? Well, the iPhone 15 is just around the corner, and by all accounts the new generation of iPhones will finally make the jump to USB-C, so you best believe Anker will be ready to offer some new charging solutions to Apple upgraders.

The new Anker Nano series also has a new fun and colorful design to it, with a nod to the more colorful iPhone 14 models, and while we have seen all the elements of this new Anker Nano 30W power bank before in its other devices, it has been redesigned to fit the new Nano branding. So the new Nano power bank might look good, but does it still nail the basics?
