" ...  Long time Anker user. ... Great high quality charger as always.  ...  "

" ...  This little 30W adapter charges up my iPad Pro much faster than the 18W adapter Apple includes with it, all while being $20 cheaper and smaller than Apple’s own 29W MacBook adapter.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Plenty of power for your phone, iPad, Nintendo Switch and on a laptop it can maintain (but not increase) your charge.  ...  "

" ...  It charges my 13” MacBook Pro no problem, also charging an attached iPhone.  ...  "

" ...  However, it charges fine when I'm using the laptop for web browsing and text editing.  ...  "

" ...  Anker battery backups and charging units are attractive, well designed, and work efficiently. ... An Anker product is like buying an insurance policy for your devices since Anker chargers and backups know what type of device is being charged and charge at a rate specifically for that particular unit. ... No overcharging, no charging at an incorrect rate, no problems at all. ... Electronic devices are getting more and more expensive and Anker ensures that the life of your devices are properly charged in a way that prolongs their life span.  ...  "

" ...  The power on this charger and it's smaller profile are a true positive step forward and miles ahead of apple! ... I'm looking forward to their next usb c charger.  ...  "

" ...  I think while trying to make a small portable charger they prioritized being able to advertise a smaller number rather than have the prongs fold and have it actually be more useful.  ...  "

" ...  Currently using other PD 30w items, I benefit greatly charging my nintendo switch, mac laptop, iphone, ipad, headphones, and more via USB-C. ... Think of it like a fat apple 5w adapter that has come with iPhones for the past several years.  ...  "

" ...  Love it when I’m traveling and don’t want to bring a series of chargers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  No, the biggest positive attribute of this charger is the fact that it will *never* fall out of a wall socket or airplane socket or train socket.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I travel nationally and internationally . ... YMMV, but this charger fits perfectly along with my kit of cables and international travel-brick in my Saddleback bag!  ...  "
comment
" ...  The prongs are sturdy and look like they can take being beat up in a travel bag on the road for long arduous stints, but they DO NOT FOLD. ... A bonus would be interchangeable prongs for international plugs (I use europlug and type G plug on planes to make it not fall out).  ...  "

comment
" ...  The build quality is OEM quality, feeling slightly more solid than the Apple chargers, plus I really like the matte finish because it won’t show scratches and smudges nearly as easily as the Apple chargers.  ...  "
