1. Fast Charge Compatible - The smaller 12,000mAh model has a maximum charging output of 65W on each USB-C port which means it can charge two devices simultaneously at up to 65W fast charging. While the larger 27,650mAh can charge an M2 MacBook Pro 16-inch to 50 percent in just 28 minutes. The two USB-C and one USB-A port on the larger power bank can max out at 250W in total.

2. Rapid Rechargeable - The 12,000mAh can also take an input of 65W. Anker says it takes 45 minutes to charge from 0 to 100 percent with the 65W charger. The larger 27,650mAh power bank can take a max input of 170W which replenishes the power bank from 0 to 100 in just 37 minutes.

4. Digital Display with Smart Monitoring - On each Anker Prime Power Bank is a color display that displays the current charge and several relevant metrics like input, output, and the like. Anker claims that it uses the Active Shield 2.0 which monitors the power bank's temperature 3,000,000 times per day.

5. Smart App - The larger 27,650mAh can be connected to your phone with the Anker App via Bluetooth. Where real-time stats are displayed. When misplaced, the app has a Find Device feature that helps locate the power bank. The app also allows granular controls for smarter charging that Anker says should extend the power bank's battery life.

Quick thoughts

In our experience, the two power banks helped us get through the day or days whenever we were on the go.

For everyday use, we prefer bringing the 130W power bank as it has enough juice to power my phone and even my laptop for emergencies. When traveling, especially abroad, the airline-approved 27,650mAh (250W) is more suitable as it can power more devices several times.

Both performed as well as advertised.

For those interested, the Anker Prime 12,000mAh (130W) is priced at PHP 7,355 but is currently discounted on the Anker Philippines website or just PHP 5,516.25. 

Meanwhile, the larger Anker Prime 27,650mAh (250W) is priced at just PHP 11,995.
