" ...  Build quality is very good and the output current and voltage is very stable, which I is not true of most other 3rd-party chargers. ... Having both USB-C and USB-A ports on this charger is very handy.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It charges MUCH faster than the standard iPhone charger using the USB-C connection, and having dual inputs is great if you need something else charged.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Great charger for quickly recharging devices with big batteries and that utilize PowerDelivery. ... I use it for quickly charging my Pixel and my portable battery pack with PD.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Maybe Apple didn't give me the USB-C charger, but the result is I bought a superior charger for less. ... Charges my iPhone XS very quickly. ... Also tops up my Anker batteries pretty fast too.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The charger was great for the first 31 days, but then it completely stopped working right after the return window ended. ... It was great while it worked for charging my pixel 2 xl and Fitbit.  ...  "

" ...  Fast charges a fully depleted iPhone 8, using the USB-C port and Apple's 1 meter USB-C to lightning cable, in a 1 hour 35 minutes which is impressive.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I recently purchased the Anker USB C Charger Port II UL certified 49.5W wall charger with foldable plug. ... The USB C port quickly recharges and powers my 2017 MacBook Pro 13" for 1/3 of the cost of the Apple power brick that came with the laptop.  ...  "
