As with the other chargers we tested, this Anker model featured folding prongs that tuck away within its body for ultimate portability and eco-cred. Plus, being made from recycled plastics earned it our approval as well. However, please be aware that significant power supply brands (like Anker) often update specs on their chargers or change product names without notice, so it is wise to double-check both before making your decision.
