Anker debuted the B600 Video Bar at CES this year, an all-in-one videoconferencing gear that includes a speaker, light, microphone, and camera in one gadget. Although it has a hefty price tag ($220), Anker hasn’t skimped on the specifications, and the Video Bar comes with a long list of high-end components. The all-in-one webcam sits on top of your monitor or TV, just like any other camera. It has a 2K camera sensor with a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, an array of built-in speakers, and four microphones that use AI to block out surrounding noise while boosting your own speech.

The light bar on top of the webcam on Anker’s B600 Video Bar is undoubtedly the highlight for folks whose home illumination & webcam make them appear like they’re sitting in the early 2000s. A variety of sensors are used in the Anker’s new webcam lighting system to automatically alter the brightness and white balance. There’s even a real brightness dial up front that you can adjust manually.

The reliable iPhone accessory manufacturer has also unveiled the new $79 Nano II Charger, which the company claims is “the world’s smallest 100W Gallium Nitride wall charger.” In terms of size, the 100W power unit is far smaller than the ordinary fast chargers that come with practically every fast-charge capable gadget, and even smaller than the majority of the 65W bricks. This 2022 multi-device charger houses a single USB-A port and two USB-C ports.

The plug also has the third version of Anker’s PowerIQ technology, which allows it to work with a variety of proprietary standards including Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, Power Delivery, Apple Fast Charging, and Samsung Fast Charging without sacrificing safety.
