The Anker PowerPort Atom III is getting its first price drop ever, today.

It's dropping from $39.99 to $30.99 over on Amazon. That is when you use the promo code ANKERD62 at checkout.

And that means that this is also the lowest price it has ever been.

The PowerPort Atom III is the latest GaN charger from Anker. The company has been using GaN or Gallium Nitride for its chargers, over the past year or so. One of the main advantages to using GaN over Silicon is the size.

This charger can charge at 60W, so comparing it to another 60W USB-C PD charger like the MacBook Pro's charger, we can see that it is about 35-percent smaller. And that's no small feat. It also means that it's going to be great for taking on the go with you, as it'll take up less space in your bag.

Since this is able to charge at up to 60W, that means that it can charge your laptop and smartphone. Most, actually basically none, smartphones are able to charge at 60W. So the good thing here is that it is able to still charge your smartphone quickly, without damaging it. Thanks to backwards compatibility. It will be able to charge at around 18W for most phones.

The only downside is that while this is 60W and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus does support 45W charging, it won't on this particular wall charger. You see Samsung is using a little known technology called Programmable Power Supply or PPS, in addition to Power Delivery. Which this charger does not have, unfortunately. PPS does make it safer to charge at faster speeds, so good thing Samsung is using it, but unfortunately most PD chargers don't use that just yet.
