Peripherals maker Anker produces a lot of gadgets to enhance the abilities of your laptop, smartphone or tablet – but which ones are best?

If there’s a gadget category where a peripheral could be made, the odds are that you can buy one with the Anker logo embossed on it are pretty damned high. The Chinese maker produces a lot of gear, but which are its best products?

It’s not 100% scientific, but it is interesting to see what users on the world’s biggest online retailer Amazon think in this regard, because folks are just as likely to snark and leave terrible reviews as they are positive ones.

Need I point out the infamous Hutzler Banana Slicer in this regard? Mind you, that’s not an Anker product, but probably only because there’s no real practical way to fit a USB C port to a Banana Slicer.

So which products rise above the rest in terms of general audience acclaim? Here’s what the collective wisdom of Amazon users as of 10th September 2020 reckoned, with rankings taking into account both the score and collective number of reviews.

Frankly, there’s a lot of 4.5/5 reviews of just about everything on Amazon, but keeping that review score consistent over thousands of reviews suggests a much stronger link to quality than a product that maybe has only 3 reviews.
