Review: Anker Metal Suitcase

Anker recently sent me a metal suitcase. Although I was expecting this media drop of some Anker products, I did not expect them to be inside a metal suitcase. With so many products to support my devices, no wonder it says “One Day with Anker”.

BTW, I love Anker products. I bought their USB-C cable and I also have the Anker PowerCore Jump Starter mini for my car. It is a life-saver on a few occasions. That is another story.

On the back of the suitcase, it says “Charge Everything Faster”.

I am going to introduce every products in the suitcase. Check out this unboxing video, which I show you the content one at a time, if you haven’t.

BTW, the suitcase even comes with a booklet with all the information about the products.

Here is the list of products in the suitcase.

And I believe this is the star of all the products I received.

Here is a simple navigation menu for your usage:

Here are the Anker products.

Can’t see clearly. I will lay them out properly.

I will start with the most interesting one (base on my opinion) and I will try to provide a link for each one to the official product site.

PowerExpand Elite 13-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 Dock

I like their packaging. It is very subtle and the focus is on the product when you open up the box. This is the Anker PowerExpand Elite 13-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 Dock.

Nowadays, laptops come with very little ports. Some might have just 2 USB-C ports. In order to work efficiently, this PowerExpand Elite 13-in-1 Thunderbolt 3 Dock can really help.

It is not very big in size but it has a lot of ports.

Here are the ports.

And highlights on this product.
