Review: Anker 60W 6-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ Technology

Last year I got a high tech road bike that has a Garmin cyclocomputer as well as front and rear safety lights that need to be recharged. Ditto for my wife and her bike. Thus I decided to have a dedicated charger for it. We travel with our bikes as evidenced by our trip to Newfoundland last year, so it has to be easy to pack as well and should be able to be used worldwide.

Enter the Anker 60W 6-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ Technology:


Above you can see the charger as well as the power cable it comes with. It also comes with an adhesive strip to allow you to stick the charger to a wall or under a cabinet. It measures 14.6 x 13.8 x 3.8 cm which means it takes up very little real estate. Yet it will still charge six devices.

If you need to use this somewhere other than North America, it can support 100-240V, though you’ll have to source your own cables or use an adapter. If you have a phone that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology, it will charge your phone at high speed. It feels very solidly built and I think it will hold up over repeated usage. When I tested it by charging all the cycling gear at the same time, it didn’t even get warm which implies that its ability to manage heat is great.

The best part about this charger is the price. I paid $40 CDN on Amazon which is great value for money in my mind. If you have a big family, or you need to charge a lot of devices, this is a must buy as far as I am concerned.
