Digital Camera World Verdict

While I am still so impressed with the Anker Prime 240W desktop charger, I really wanted to love it more. Firstly, it looks great and is something that I am happy to display on my desk, and secondly, the power output is enough to keep my laptop and all my other devices charged up simultaneously. However, a few things stopped me from being totally head over heels. The charger sits in an unsteady stand, and the hardwired power cable made placement in my desk setup harder than I would have liked.

I now have so many devices on my desk that keeping them all topped up with power is becoming a real nightmare. Down by my feet, I have a powerstrip fit to burst with several differently powered chargers for my MacBook, my phone, my cameras, my watch… you get the idea. This in turn leads to wires trailing up and down the back of my desk which I continually catch with my feet when I am fidgeting.
