Anker launched a new GaNPrime series portable power bank named ‘PowerCore 24K’ with an impressive capacity of 24,000mAh and 140W charging output that can charge a MacBook.
The power bank has three different ports, a typical USB-A slot that has a great legacy capable of 18W charging devices, and the main USB-C PD 3.1 port that can dish out 140W of power to a connected device and also accepts the same speeds when charging itself up from a wall adapter.
PowerCore also includes features from Anker’s set of new “GaNPrime” chargers introduced last month based on the high-powered GaN 3-based tech. GaNPrime chargers promise improvements in AC-to-DC conversion efficiency, more total power output, and better temperature sensing, all in a slightly smaller package.
The other chargers that Anker just released aren’t capable of PD 3.1, including the new Anker 747 GaNPrime, which is capable of 150W of charging; however, every single port can still only output 100W max.
One of the standout features of the PowerCore 24K is its smart display, which gives info like power draw for each connected device, how much power is left in the tank, and recharges time. The screen does draw 0.36W of power, so Anker recommends keeping it off when not in use, according to the product FAQs
The current price for the Anker PowerCore 24K is $149.99 and is now available on Amazon and directly from Anker.
