At CES 2022, Anker had officially unveiled a new PowerStation with 512 Wh capacity and an output of just under 500 watts, and announced availability for later in the year. Now the time has finally come, as the Anker 535 PowerHouse and the matching Anker 625 solar panel are launching in Germany.
The Anker 535 PowerHouse in detail
With the Anker 535 PowerHouse, the manufacturer introduces its longest-lasting PowerStation to date. It comes with an impressive 512 watt-hour capacity and offers 500 watts of power. This makes the new device more than twice as powerful as the manufacturer’s 521 PowerHouse, which they introduced in April.
Another focus is on the extra-durable premium LiFePO4 batteries, which are rated at 3,000 charge cycles. According to the manufacturer, this extends the battery life by 6 times compared to the standard lithium-ion battery set. The drop-resistant unibody design enhances durability in the harshest environments, providing peace of mind at home, while camping outdoors or during emergencies.
The batteries can also be charged easily via USB-C using the included adapter. In less than 2.5 hours on the power, the battery can thus be charged to 80 percent.
Connectors and Features of the Anker 535
A total of seven ports are available on the Anker 535 to reliably charge various devices. Offered are a car charging port, a USB-C port, three USB-A ports and two sockets.
A maximum (combined) output of up to 500 watts is achieved. Devices can be charged with a maximum of 60 watts via USB Type-C. According to the manufacturer, the battery capacity is sufficient to power smartphones 40 times, drones up to 10 times and cameras 30 times. A TV set can be supplied with power for three hours, and a WLAN router for up to 38 hours.
Convenient for on the go, the Anker 535 PowerHouse also features an LED light bar on the front panel that provides additional illumination with a pleasant, warm light when camping.
The easy-to-read LED display shows remaining battery capacity, current input and output status, and estimated charge percentage. The power-saving mode automatically turns off the charging station once all devices are fully charged to provide smart efficiency and avoid wasting electricity unnecessarily.
Anchor 625: charging with solar energy
To match, there is also the Anker 625 solar panel, which is compatible with all of the manufacturer’s PowerStations. With the help of the manufacturer’s Suncast technology, the panel aligns itself with the sun to always achieve the maximum possible power.
The panel, which weighs around 5 kg, has an output of 100 watts and is said to be particularly durable and robust. It can also be folded compactly for easy transport and easily taken anywhere with the help of a handle. Two devices can be charged simultaneously on the panel itself: With a maximum of 12 watts via USB-A and 15 watts via USB-C.
The DC port on the back is used to connect to the manufacturer’s PowerStations. Under ideal conditions, the 535 PowerHouse is said to be fully charged again in 5.4 hours with a solar panel. The smaller Anker 521 PowerHouse, on the other hand, only needs 4.1 hours. A maximum of up to 23 percent of sunlight is converted into solar energy. At the same time, the 1446 x 525 x 45 mm solar panel works reliably at temperatures between -20 degrees Celsius and 60 degrees Celsius.
Prices and Availability
Both devices are available now directly from the manufacturer or from Amazon’s store. The Anker 535 PowerHouse has an MSRP of 699.99 euros and ships in 6-10 days. The Anker 625 solar panel, on the other hand, is available for immediate delivery and costs 349.99 euros. More info is available on the official product website.
