With an extra charger, you never have to worry about the Ayaneo 2 running out of juice in the middle of a gaming session. Here are your best options.
Handhelds or portable gaming devices have always been around, but the last couple of years have been pretty exciting with the launch of the Asus ROG Ally, the Steam Deck, and other alternatives. As the space gets crowded, the Ayaneo 2 sticks out, mainly due to its crazy (good) specs. And with great specs, come great prices — the Ayaneo 2 starts at $1,099. Which means you better get it a good case and a screen protector.
This handheld gaming PC packs an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, an NVMe SSD for storage (512GB to 2TB), 16/32GB RAM options, and a 50.25Wh battery that promises 2-3 hours of gameplay on a single charge. This Windows device can be charged using any of its three USB-C ports. The Ayaneo 2 comes with a 65W charger in the box, but let’s look at some excellent alternatives you can buy.
Anker 735 GaNPrime 65W Charger
$40 $56 Save
With a peak output of 65W and three ports (two USB-C and one Type-A), the Anker 735 is the perfect replacement for your stock Ayaneo 2 charger. It’s roughly the size of a wireless earbuds case, has foldable prongs, and features GaN II technology.

Satechi 100W USB-C charger
This charging brick from Satechi features two USB-C PD ports and a USB-A port, for a combined output of 100W. This GaN charger looks pretty slick and is compact, too. Note that if you’re charging two devices using the USB-C ports, the power split is 60W/30W, not 45W/45W.

Recapping the best chargers for the Ayaneo 2
There’s a reason the Anker 735 is our top pick — it combines compactness, fast charging capabilities, and comes with Anker’s excellent build quality. If you want a charger that can fast charge your phone or laptop at the same time, we recommend the 100W Anker 736 charger.
Of course, you could just go for the most affordable option here, the 65W charger from PDUSBSZ, and it would do the job just as well. But if you feel like treating yourself, the Satechi 200W USB-C charger would be a great buy. It’s a great way to de-clutter your desk, plus it’s a fast-charging powerhouse.
You could also consider purchasing a docking station; not only can you charge your device while you game, it’s also convenient to connect all your peripherals and get rid of all the extra wires.
