The new $99.95 battery and charger from Anker is available from the online Apple Store and will be in Apple retail locations at the end of the week.
The PowerCore Fusion is designed to serve as both a power adapter and a battery pack for the iPhone, iPad, and MacBooks. There’s a 30W USB-C charger for charging an iPad Pro or a MacBook with a standard USB-C cable, or fast charging an iPhone with a USB-C to Lightning cable.
There’s also a 12W USB-A port that can be used to charge iPhones, iPads, and other accessories with traditional USB-A cables.
A plug at the back of the PowerCore Fusion lets it plug into the wall like any traditional power adapter, but there’s also an included 5,000mAh battery so it can be used to provide additional power for your iPhone when you’re on the go.
According to Apple, the PowerCore Fusion’s 5000mAh battery adds approximately 23 extra hours of battery life to the iPhone. When used in battery mode, the plug on the PowerCore Fusion collapses down so its similar in size to a standard USB-C power brick.
You can get the PowerCore Fusion in either black or white, and both versions have Anker’s standard battery level ring on the front. If you press it, you’ll see LED dots corresponding to the available charge level.
Anker sells other PowerCore Fusion devices on Amazon, but the version Apple is offering is the company’s only model that has a USB-C port.
Anker’s PowerCore Fusion Power Delivery Battery and Charger is available today from the Apple online store with orders set to start delivering on Friday.
