Anchor launched a new $149.99 portable PowerCore 24K GaN charger with a large 24,000 mAh battery that you can take anywhere, which can be charged quickly with 140 W, but can also provide power at the same speed (through 9to5Toys). That’s powerful enough to charge a 16-inch MacBook Pro to 50 percent in 40 minutes, assuming you’re using the MagSafe to USB-C cable.

The PowerCore features the new Power Delivery 3.1 specification that can pump more than the previous maximum of 100W from a single USB-C port. Anker’s new battery bank can pump 140W of power from one of its two USB-C ports, and there’s also one USB-A port that can charge 18W.

PowerCore also includes features from Anker’s set of new “GaNPrime” chargers introduced last month based on the powerful GaN 3-based technology. GaNPrime chargers promise improvements in AC-to-DC conversion efficiency, more total power and better temperature sensing, all in a slightly smaller package.

The other chargers Anker just released aren’t PD 3.1 capable, including the new Anker 747 GaNPrime, which can charge 150W; however, each individual port can still output up to 100W.

A notable feature of the PowerCore 24K is the smart display, which provides information such as power consumption for each connected device, how much power is left in the tank and the charging time. The screen uses 0.36W of power, so Anker recommends turning it off when not in use, according to the product FAQ.

The Anker PowerCore 24K is now available on Amazon and direct from Anker for $149.99. It doesn’t come with a USB-C cable or AC charger in the box, so you’ll need to provide your own, and both should be PD 3.1 capable if you want to take full advantage of the PowerCore 24K’s 140W input/output.
