Digital Camera World Verdict

The Anker Prime 100W is a must-have, it's a charger that combines compactness with remarkable power, liberating you from the burden of lugging around hefty chargers, especially those chargers accompanied by separate power bricks. The size of this charger is truly eye-opening; it's incredibly lightweight and can effortlessly slip into a pocket or bag for taking anywhere. Despite its diminutive size, the charger delivers ample power through a single port, easily sustaining optimal performance for top-tier laptops throughout the day. With the added convenience of three ports, it efficiently charges all your devices with speed whenever the need arises.

More and more devices are no longer including chargers in the box now, and why would they when we already have so many plugs at home? The EU successfully argued that electrical waste alone was a good enough reason for devices sold in its territory to only charge via USB-C. Although, USB-C has naturally become the default way to charge across the world, with only Apple’s iPhone being the major holdout, for now anyway. Even camera manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon, with most companies switching to USB-C charging directly in-camera.

Despite all this, the chargers that do still come with products are often ugly, bulky, heavy, and slow at charging any other product with a higher charge capacity. Companies like Anker have been leading the charge (sorry) to improve chargers for the best part of the last decade, with chargers that both look a lot nicer than most in-box chargers, but also are smaller and faster. And now with Gallium Nitride technology, they can make chargers even smaller and faster than ever before.
