Days before the iPhone 14 was unveiled, Anker debuted its newest line of charging accessories. Aside from its actual charging technology, Anker’s newest also has a striking style that sets it apart from the wide range of competing products on the market.
The lineup gained a new compact (extremely nano) charging option in addition to a few plant-based Lightning cords that we tested for you.

Anker USB-C GaN Charger 30W
The newest product from Anker, the Nano 3, can provide 30W of power. Anker is using GaN technology in its most recent product, which is housed in a form factor that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.
The new product 511 Charger (Nano 3), which can supply 30W of juice from a single USB-C connector, is claimed to be able to charge Apple’s newest iPhone14 far more quickly than the company’s options.
One of the more striking additions to the design factor is folding prongs, especially in light of how little the wall adapter is. It is quite useful for keeping an everyday carry in your backpack, is very small, and only lifts the build.
With its new Nano 3 chargers, Anker also adds some additional aesthetics that aren’t quite as functional. You may select which model goes with the rest of your apparel by choosing from one of five available hues. Available colors at launch are Aurora White, Lilac Purple, Misty Blue, Natural Green, and Phantom Black.
Although there isn’t quite a direct connection between the colors of the new GaN USB-C chargers and the colors of the iPhone 14, it appears that many of the same colors are included in both lineups. You may get a matching Anker accessory if you’re using one of the new purple iPhones from Apple or any other hue.

Anker USB-C to Lightning Cable
Plastics are a huge problem in today’s society. It has undoubtedly changed since its “wonder materials” reputation in the 1950s, with microparticles contaminating our water, biphenyl A, and its roots in petroleum extraction.
Anker has released a new line of USB-C cables that do away with the plastic outer sheath in favor of one made partially of plants as the industry starts investigating alternatives. To be clear, Anker’s new cables’ material isn’t entirely repeated here: Corn and sugarcane fibers will make up 40% of the new outer sheathing’s material composition.
Additionally, the inner sheaths protecting the individual wires running from a pin-in to pin-out are probably still made of plastic. And if you’re wondering what’s insulating those wires, it’s probably a rubber polymer made from petroleum.
The connector covers are also made entirely of plastic. However, these new cables represent a start in the right direction toward minimizing the potential effects of our e-consumption. If durability is a priority for you, the business claims its new cables can withstand 20,000 bends.
Both the 543 Type-C to Type-C cables and the 541 USB-C to lightning cable are available in 3- and 6-foot lengths and pastel shades of black, white, blue, and green. The Type-C cable can deliver up to 100W, whereas the Lightning cable can only offer 30W to devices. Inventory is available for direct purchase from Anker and will soon be accessible on Amazon.

Bonus: Anker 622 Magnetic Battery Pack
This Anker Magnetic Battery (MagGo) from Anker will be the best companion for the iPhone, which supports a MagSafe charger. The Anker 622 is designed for use and offers 5000mAh power and 7.5W capacity. Dolomite White, Interstellar Gray, Buds Green, Misty Blue, and Lilac Purple are just a few of the colors available
The foldable kickstand at the back enables it to be propped upright while charging through USB-C.
This portable charger is my regular backpack item when I travel. With the new iPhone 14 Pro, I usually play games and watch YouTube videos while on the go. Even though the new iPhone 14 battery is powerful, hefty tournaments necessitate a large battery for a semi-arid player. Although the game doesn’t have the most sophisticated graphics, it is well known for draining batteries because your screen and GPS are always on.
Apple has replaced its outdated Smart Battery Case with a magnetic battery pack with its iPhone 12/13 MagSafe technology, and happily, considering Apple’s high prices, some excellent alternatives are available.
With its Anker MagGo 622 Magnetic Battery, a reputable competitor to Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack, Anker has long been a source of high-quality mobile power solutions. It is compatible with all MagSafe iPhone models, including the new iPhone 14, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max.
The 5,000mAh battery in the Anker 622 should theoretically provide nearly twice the battery life of an iPhone 12 or 1.5 times the battery life of an iPhone 13. In practice, battery packs won’t even reach the maximum possible, particularly wireless ones.
With a whopping 5,000mAh, Anker outperforms Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack, which has just 1,460mAh. The battery level displayed with 5 LEDS and there in a power on button next to the USB C port of the charger.
However, battery capacities are more involved than a simple comparison. If you calculate the battery capacity differences across devices, Apple’s battery capacity is more like 3,000mAh, which is still less than Anker’s. We put all the battery packs and cases through a straightforward drain and charge procedure to obtain a more accurate comparison. We waited until the battery life on our test iPhone 13 Pro fell to 5% and then turned on the battery packs.
The Anker MagGo 622 Magnetic Battery recharged to 85% before discharging, earning it an 80% rating. Although MagSafe is undoubtedly more efficient than a non-magnetic Q1 charging pad due to its locked-in location, a significant amount of power (up to 50%) is lost through the whims of wireless charging inefficiency.
We also tested a battery case (the 4,800mAh Newdery Battery Case for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13), which scored 96% but has a different design than MagSafe-compatible battery packs and doesn’t wirelessly charge the phone even if it can itself.
The MagGo 622 is available in five light colors: Buds Green, Dolomite White, Interstellar Gray, Lilac Purple, and Misty Blue. It measures 10.5 x 6.6 x 1.3 cm. The only color available for Apple’s Battery Pack is white, which is not ideal if you want your battery pack to match your non-white phone. The 622 is lightweight (146g vs. 162g and 204g for the iPhone 12 and 13 Pro, respectively) and easily fits your back pocket.
Although generic covers can be bought elsewhere, we would have enjoyed a travel pouch or case to protect it if stored in a bag. The Apple MagSafe Battery Pack weighs 115g less in comparison.
