The highlight of this line is the 240W desktop charger, Anker’s most powerful USB-C charger yet. 

Anker shared at the event that the multi-port charger is capable of charging two MacBook Pros, an iPhone, and an iPad at full power, while still having leftover power for another device.

The Anker Prime 250W Power Bank stands out from its predecessors with the addition of a wireless charging base. The wireless charging base is meant to eliminate the inconvenient moment when you go to use your power bank and realize it is not charged.
