Anker 100w GAN Charger Review: A Must-Have for Concert Photographers

As a photographer, I always try to find gear that can minimize the weight I have to carry, be it for a concert or during travels. Recently I found out about the Anker 100w GaN Charger and have been using it consistently as my primary charger, carrying it everywhere I go.

Below are some of the reasons I’ve decided to stick to the Anker charger:

Charging Speed

The Anker 100W GaN Charger is incredibly fast when it comes to charging speed. It has two USB-C ports, allowing me to charge my MacBook Air and Sony A7R V simultaneously, and both devices charge quickly. The charger supports USB Power Delivery 3.0 PPS (programmable power standard) and Quick Charge 3.0, making it compatible with a wide range of devices. I’ve found that it can charge my MacBook from 0 to 80% in under an hour, which is impressive, and I can also use it to charge my power bank or extra camera batteries without having to worry too much about the time to do so.


This charger is compact and light, which makes it very easy for me to just leave one always in my backpack or camera bag at all times, this way I know I always have an emergency charger wherever I go and it doesn’t create any significant impact on space or weight.


In the past, I’ve had issues charging my camera or even my Macbook, either due to cables not being compatible or the charger itself. Thankfully the Anker 100W GaN is compatible with both, and I can use it with the same cable, as long as it allows the correct charging speed for each device.

Build Quality

As with most products I’ve used in the past from Ankder, the charger build quality is great, it feels solid and has a certain premium finish to it. I’ve been using it for a while and it has been quite reliable and still looks good. It also has a compact design which makes it easy to put on different plugs and angles without too much hassle.

User Experience

Overall, my experience with the Anker 100W GaN Charger has been excellent. It’s easy to use, the charger’s power delivery is smooth and consistent, and I’ve had no issues with overheating or any other problems. The fact that it’s so compact and lightweight means I can take it with me wherever I go, which is a big plus for a concert photographer like myself.


In conclusion, the Anker 100W GaN Charger is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a reliable, efficient, and compact charger. Its charging speed, portability, compatibility, build quality, and user experience all make it a standout product in its class. Whether you’re a concert photographer like myself or just someone who needs a reliable charger for your daily devices, the Anker 100W GaN Charger is worth considering.

Additional Tips

  • The charger’s USB-C ports are capable of delivering up to 100W, but this is only true when charging a single device. When charging multiple devices, the power output will be reduced.
  • The charger’s build quality is excellent, but it’s still important to handle it with care to ensure it lasts for a long time.
