I recently spent two weeks abroad in Italy, France and Germany, and I brought the new Anker PowerPort Atom PD 2 gallium nitride (GaN) charger (around $ 55 via Amazon) to charge iPhone , iPad

Actually, I brought Two, along with the necessary plus adapters (I used Ceptics Type C 2-in-1 Travel Adapter Plugs – only $ 9.99 for three of them – as Worked perfectly in all three countries so I could charge my iPhone, iPad Pro and MacBook Air at the same time.

Anchor PowerPort Atom PD 2 gallium nitride (GaN) charger is billed as "Ultimate Travel Charger" and that's really just that. It's 15% smaller than Apple's stocked MacBook charger to charge 2 MacBooks at once. By replacing silicon for gallium nitride (GaN), Anker has created a higher efficiency charger that provides less heat, so that the charger shrinks less than ever. 60W output provides high-speed charging to virtually any USB-C and Lightning device. I appreciated the 18 month warranty and the Apple-esque foldable plug. With the plug folded, there is only a small 68 × 69 × 28 mm, 130 gram piece that evenly falls into the backpack's cable bag.

With Anker Intelligent Power Allocation, exclusive technology distributes the power between devices and provides high-speed speed charging up to 60W when a single device is connected. With just my iPhone XS Max plugged in with Anker 3ft USB C to Quick Cable (Apple MFi Certified) Powerline II cable, it is charged at 55% in just 30 minutes!

Everywhere I went, I congratulated myself for picking up these drawers before my trip. I spent a lot more on my iPhone, took pictures, signed up friends, family and travel companions, looked up local information, etc., so it was a big plus to be able to charge fast. I never ran out of juice throughout the trip, which I probably would have happened if I had saddled myself with slower non-GaN chargers.

So, having put these chargers and cables completely through their steps, I strongly recommend Anker PowerPort Atom PD 2 gallium nitride (GaN) charger, Anchor 3ft USB C for lightning cord (Apple MFi certified) Powerline II cables , Ankers Powerline II USB-C to USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 cables, and when traveling overseas, Ceptics

Gallium nitride (GaN) makes all the difference!
