    323 seems like a good charger (I bought the white). Would recommend

    • +6

      Will this go well with my Mazda 323?

      • +4


        ….of course it will.

      • If your Mazda 323 is an EV, then yes…

        • Who needs an EV when the good old cig lighter port works well lol.

    This isn't GaN but it's fine. Neat little charger. Have one already. Can just about keep a lower power M1 mac (13inch air/pro etc) charged/charging slowly while in general use (web browsing).

    Good price! Decent charger if your new phone didn't come with one!

        A marketing label used to convince buyers that it's worth buying

        • +1

          If you think it's a marketing label you have absolutely no idea what it is, or what you're talking about.

          Don't spread misinformation of you don't know.

            @SmoothCactus: If you think that a Chinese seller will hesitate at writing anything to make a sale, you are mistaken. Some of the Heymix chargers on Amazon have pictures of babies touching them, for example.

            On the topic of GaN MOSFETs themselves, what "GaN" refers to, go and watch this video by a popular EE. He found a non-GAN MOSFET in his "GaN" charger. Comparing just the MOSFETs revealed only a 2% efficiency gain.

            My point here is - consumers don't know whats in their products, but want "GaN" cause they've been told it's better. From an ozbargain "should I buy this charger" perspective, it's primarily a marketing term.

            Instead, it's better to focus on buying from a reputable brand. Anker seem to pass that test (and probably why they didn't write GaN on the box!)

      Costco one cheaper but slightly different product. Costco one is Max 20W on USB C, this one can be 33W if only USB C is used.

  • -1

    Only 20W on USB C is not a lot these days

    • -1

      It's 33W on USB C if USB A port not used.

      • It clearly says if you connect one usb c it’s 20W unless I misunderstood.

        • "High-Speed Charging: Equipped with a 33W USB-C Power Delivery port to charge phones, tablets, and more up to 3 times faster than with an original charger."

          • @amsaini15: I was a bit unsure of this one as well, but there is an image saying it can do a MacBook Air provided it is the only think on the USB C. Checked Anker's website and says the same thing.
            Anyone got one that can confirm?

            • +2

              @tjc589: Yes it can charge a MacBook Air - the USB-C port is rated for 20V, 1.65A (33W).

            • +1

              @tjc589: I have this charger, it's 33W for single USB C.

              20W & 12W if you charge using both ports simultaneously.

  • How do u know that?

    How about this one for $27.99?

    • Heymix, enough said.

      Having said that, I do own a Heymix USB-C to HDMI adapter and it works OK.

    • you'll get a lot of firey comments at heymix…

      There's also the HEYMIX 65W USB C 3-Port AU Plug Power Adapter - 45W/30W/25W/20W

      I need to get a new charger for my P8P - are heymix really that bad?

    • +1

      Heymix function fine but the coil whine is insane on the two charger models of theirs I tried, had them in the bedroom and office and they drove me insane. Anker are absolutely at least a tier above quality wise (usually). YMMV

    • Squints eyes:

      Not sure if trolling…

    • Just incase you're unaware, heymix only work until they don't. By which time your devices won't work either.

    Check out eBay as well. Anker 323 (33W) also sold in varying prices. Use eBay discount codes or your eBay plus membership $5 monthly discount code to save further.

  • I'm seeing some discussion about using this on laptops. It's insufficient for laptops, it can provide maybe half the power most laptops need. Trickle charging is not healthy for battery cells either and you're just negatively affecting your battery life with this idea.

    I don't understanding the justifications being made that you can charge your device if you're doing light work or not using it. Why would you go out of your way to spend money on a charger that won't even charge your device properly, while it's simultaneously going to drain your limited battery life?

    It can negotiate 20v 1.65A for 33W output on a single port, but some devices may not correctly negotiate that or maintain that if there isn't enough power.

    Additionally I'd be very surprised if this can thermally tolerate pumping out 33W sustained for longer than 1-2hr without throttling of some kind

    This is a good little charger, not for laptops…

    • +1

      I believe it’s totally fine for a MacBook Air m1, but your statement is probably right for other laptops, I wouldn’t know.

    • Yeah, most laptops will need ~65W.

    • +4

      Laptops have a BMS, so they never "trickle charge" (constant current charging at full voltage).

      The laptop BMS will do a bulk, constant current charge until the battery voltage reaches a set value (often 4.2V per cell), then switch to constant voltage, where it reduces the charge current over time to maintain that 4.2V. By the end of the charge, typically only a few hundred milliamps is flowing at most. After the current reduces to a value set in the BMS, it will stop charging, and allow the battery voltage to drop. Once it hits a set lower voltage, the BMS will maintain that lower voltage as a float charge.

      If the laptop power use exceeds what is supplied by the charger, some will be supplied by the battery. If the battery voltage drops below a certain value, the BMS will do another charge cycle. The specific thresholds depend on the programming of the BMS, the battery, the charger etc. This does not cause any problem for the battery, and the extra time spent at lower voltage will decrease wear a tiny bit.

      Laptop battery wear is mostly from normal charge discharge cycles, time spent at higher or lower voltages (at or near to 100% or 0% charge) and charging / discharging at high or low temperatures. Slow charging is perfectly fine, and reduces heating, which will slightly reduce wear.

      I suspect it is unlikely that many laptops would have an issue negotiating the needed voltage and current from a 33W charger. Certainly if the laptop is using most, or all of the charger output, then the battery won't charge. It would slowly discharge over time, which does not cause any issues, beyond the battery eventually running out, and the laptop throttling performance because it does not have enough power.

      The Anker 323 is rated at 86.29% average efficiency, so at 33W output, it's dissipating about 5W as heat. I doubt it will need to throttle the output unless it was in a very hot environment. I have one of these chargers and am curious, so I will stick it on my load tester overnight and see how it performs.

      And while of course a 33W charger is not really suited for higher end laptops, it's perfectly fine for normal use. I have a somewhat power hungry Inspiron 7610, and I'd usually use a larger charger, for faster charging while using the laptop (or if gaming / video editing), but the 323 is fine most of the time. I have a cable with a wattage display and IIRC, plugged in (so performance mode, full screen brightness) with a fully charged battery, doing normal stuff like web browsing, the 7610 uses 15W - 20W.

      In my case, the 323 is plugged in by the TV, with a long cable that reaches the couch. It is mostly used for phone charging, but my partner and I often sit on the couch with our laptops and charge them if needed. It's also nice and compact to grab as a second charger if we are away somewhere.

      Trickle charging is not healthy for battery cells either and you're just negatively affecting your battery life with this idea.


      Both LiFePO4 and LiPO batteries prefer slow charging. liPO prefer 1C and LiFePO4 0.5C is even better.

      Slow charging will extend your batteries' life span - fast charging will diminish their life span.

      • I like pd Fast charging, take off near 100% straight away. Pixel has adaptive charging, so as long as you have an alarm set it trickle charges over that time up to 100%. I'm not worried about either 🙄👍

        I assume the Anker will support this feature still.

    • +3

      Ok, I left the 323 on the load tester and it ran overnight at 20V, 1.65A with no issue.

      The charger itself never got more than mildly warm to the touch in a ~20 degree room.

      A quick and dirty sanity check gives a ~92% efficiency at full output. Which means it is dissipating about 3W as heat.

      I don't see a teardown the 323, but generally Anker gear is well made, and it's no surprise it can easily dissipate such a small heat load through the case and into the air without problems.

    Had an issue with this where, if you used both ports at the same time, the USB-C port would eventually stop working. You then had to power cycle the whole brick to get it going again.

    Good to check on here - grabbed one for $22.
    Still using a 18w pd charger from pixel 5 but pixel 8 now takes 30w.

    Got a $10 google store credit, the 30w adaptor is still $35 (but includes 1m cable).
    May get both, nothing else there to buy ($55 cases no thanks).

    Anker is reputable, as long as one port gives 33w (which it does, not keen on the multi adapters but probably handy having USB A).

    • Thanks for the reminder about the $10 credit. What case did you get for Pixel 8?

      • +1

        Yeah I picked up the genuine 30W charger as they are the best, $35 with $10 off, also grabbed the Anker for travel, was good for 22$.

        Case - Spigen rugged armour from progadgets eBay (can't go wrong, $25 or $20 with vouche, had the same one on my p5and p7)

          I had that case open in another tab, will pull the trigger thanks legend!

            @woodyroo: Do it, great cases, offer a lot of protection not to much bulk. Cheers

  • How would this compare to the Heymix 35W GaN charger for only $17.24?


    • 2W less and $5 more.
      I would prefer Anker though.
