Size and Aesthetics
The Anker Powerport Wireless 5 Charging Stand has a very simplistic stand design with a black colour throughout and the white Anker branding in the middle. The stand is a similar width to most smartphones, with a cradle that is secure but doesn’t stick out very far. It’s worth noting that the stand is pretty lightweight without much weighting on the rear end so be careful of knocking the stand over as this is a potential problem.
This product functions like a standard smartphone wireless charging stand.
The Anker Powerport Wireless 5 Charging Stand has a grippy rubberised base which helps keep it in position whereas the front has a matte finish, relying solely on the cradle to keep the phone in position. This can be potentially problematic however as your phone may still slide around on the stand.
This Anker wireless charger contains two transmitter coils one for portrait mode and one for landscape. The shape of the stand indicates where to place your Qi enabled phones when in portrait but landscape may take a bit of fiddling.
A small circular LED on the cradle of the stand lights up blue when your phone is charging correctly. This is subtle and shouldn’t be too bright for bedside charging.
The Anker Powerport Wireless 5 Charging Stand is reasonably priced for a well-made professional looking charger from a top brand. However, this is most likely due to the lack of fast charging capability.
