Slow Chargers Explained

Why does your smartphone charge faster from some chargers and slower from others? Using Android devices with Apple chargers is guaranteed to cause a long wait for a recharge.
The issue isn't just power output, it's compatibility. Though every mobile device is unique, standard chargers come hard-wired with just one charging protocol—preventing them from charging devices at max speed.

The Solution

Anker’s patented PowerIQ™ technology intelligently detects and adapts to your device's unique protocol for the fastest possible charge. PowerIQ™ combines with Anker's premium, durable design to create the world’s most advanced rapid chargers.

Conquering Cable Resistance

VoltageBoost™ is an Anker-exclusive technology that compensates for cable resistance by smoothing voltage output.
Other chargers have their speeds reduced by cable resistance. With the effects of cable resistance mitigated by VoltageBoost™,
your device receives its fastest possible charging speed, every single time.
