Anker's Nano 3 30W USB-C Charger price dropped to $14.

Anker's official Amazon store now offers the Nano 3 USB-C 30W GaN Charger for$14. That's $9 below the regular going rate of $23 and a new all-time low. Earlier in the spring, we saw the price drop to $16—a former Amazon low—and now it's down another $2. Today's offer only applies to the Aurora White style, as other styles cost around $16. We also previously covered this issue in the Tested with 9to5Toys review.

Anker's new GaN charger is called the Nano 3 and is available in one of five color options. Launched alongside the iPhone 14 series, the power adapter has several matching designs that can deliver 30W of power to the latest Apple devices and a host of other gadgets through a single USB-C port. We still like this feature on the iPhone 15, as well as any of the more recent Android smartphones, all of which no longer come with an AC adapter in the box.

It has a collapsible plug that can easily be thrown into your everyday bag, and comes with other features like Anker ActiveShield technology to protect against overheating while maximizing your MacBook's charging capacity and more.
