  1. Unfortunately I can't find the charger. Your product link also points to a product with 2 ports and there is a review there that the charger does not do very well. Maybe there are problems and Anker has withdrawn?

    After a search on Amazon I found the charger, but it is also not available :-(

    1. Hello DF! That's right, but unfortunately I don't know why it is currently not available. One customer has problems with his Huawei P20 ... no idea whether it is due to the cable, the smartphone or the charger. So far, I can only say good things about the Anker chargers. They are probably just having delivery problems right now. A test device should arrive in a few days so I can take a closer look at the PowerPort Atom III myself with my Apple devices. Test report will follow!

        1. Of course! : D I have exactly the model (2017) ... but I can already tell you that the 60 watts are enough to slowly charge the device even during operation. My MacBook Pro charges with approx. 19,8 volts and a maximum of 2,65 amps - almost 53 watts. This is what the Anker device can do with its 60 watts!

          1. Also the 15 ″ model? I thought the 60 watts would be too little for that. Maintaining the charge level certainly works, but also recharging at the same time? I'm not sure about that: - /

          2. As soon as I have the PSU I'll give it a try. But I also have the 15 inch MBP with touch bar and two external hard drives without their own power supply attached. Each of them needs about 500 mA and still I don't get more than 53 watts of power. I think the only way you can do more is by rendering videos or running funny 3D movies until the processor glows. : D
            So you don't have to worry that the power supply won't do it.
