Anker’s new Nano II 100W charger uses the company’s very own GaN (Gallium Nitride) II technology. The charger is also being touted to be 34% (!!) smaller than Apple’s 96-watt charger while offering the convenience of three USB ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously.
On the rear, the charger features two USB-C ports and one USB-A port and is capable of intelligently distributing power among the ports based on usage. This is done by using Anker’s PowerIQ 3.0 technology, which is the company’s proprietary fast-charging technology that intelligently identifies your device to deliver the fastest possible charge.
When either of the USB-C ports is used alone, it can deliver a full 100 watts of power, making it capable of charging most notebooks out there on the market that use the USB-C port for power delivery and charging.
The Anker 736 charger has a three-port setup, providing a variety of charging options depending on which ports are used. When both USB-C ports are used together, the top port will deliver 60 watts and the bottom port will deliver 40 watts.
By using the top USB-C port in combination with the USB-A port, the charger will deliver 80 watts and 18 watts, respectively. Similarly, when the bottom USB-C port and USB-A port are used together, the charger will provide a 60-watt and 22.5-watt split. When all three ports are used at the same time, the top USB-C port will deliver 45 watts, the bottom USB-C port will deliver 30 watts, and the USB-A port will deliver 18 watts.
For this review, we used the top port for charging a Huawei Matebook 14 and the bottom port to charge a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 simultaneously. In about an hour’s time, the Huawei Matebook 14 went from 33% to 100%, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 was able to go from 10% to full charge.
The Anker 736 Charger (Nano II 100W) is priced at AED 299. That price point is great for a device that offers three ports that can charge three devices at the same time, 100W charging for laptops, and a few bells and whistles. The Anker 736 Charger (Nano II 100W) thus comes across as highly recommended.
