SPECIAL NOTICE – This item was just discontinued by Anker but a new better model is available. I will be amending this review for the new model this week as soon as one shows up to test. I don’t put up anything without testing it, even with Anker but I have no qualms ordering one. The new one looks like a hella upgrade, you can find it here https://amzn.to/34P1CTY I should be running this new one by the end of the week as an official item of the day, but let’s just say I do not expect to be disappointed. Anker has yet to disappoint me.
Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Anker 24W Dual USB Car Charger. To me this dual charger is the best bang for the buck you can get on the market today. First I love Anker, they are just a stand up company with a great warranty and very good support. They stand behind everything they make, all the time. And yea even with a 10 dollar product like this.
This little charger is 24 watts, most of this size and price range are 5-15 watts, simply put this thing charges fast, really fast. Compared to some of the other stuff we have used almost twice as fast for my wife’s iPhone 6 and my iPhone 7.
What I really like is it is so compact, it takes almost no space up and yet provides two ports. The top port gives you the fastest charging at 4.8 amps, the lower port charges at 2.4 amps and that still gives you a quicker charge that most 10 dollar 12vdc chargers.
Our view is we keep an Anker Astro E7 fully charged, if you use it plug it into the lower port to top it off. Given that power bank will charge an iPhone 10 times you are pretty bullet proof at that point.
Steven Harris and I both have the same view on cell phones.
- Rule One – You don’t let your cell phone go dead, in fact you keep it fully charged all the time. When you are home you plug it in, when you are in the car you plug it in, etc.
- Rule Two – Have multiple ways to charge your phone, especially in your vehicle.
- Rule Three – You don’t let your cell phone go dead, in fact you keep it fully charged all the time. When you are home you plug it in, when you are in the car you plug it in, etc.
Simple no? I also believe in buying quality and Anker gives you that and at 10 bucks, you should have one of these in every vehicle and one in your BOB, get home bag, travel bag, what ever you call your kit/kits of choice. So check out the Anker 24W Dual USB Car Charger and remember if you want the best back up battery pack on the market for your mobile devices in my opinion you just can’t beat the Anker Astro E7.
