Not hard.

 

You know the word Anus? Remove the "us" part, put that in front of "k-uh-er" and you have "ayne-k-uh-er" Anker

 

I know that seemed silly, but it was the best I could do. Google is of no help here.

Same way you pronounce anchor, like a boat anchor.

There's a Twitter post by linus talking about Anker or something

It's like saying "ankle", but only after downing a bottle of vodka and while you have a potato in your mouth.

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

Excuse me a moment whilst I go and test this theory!

Definitely take that claim with a grain of salt, but I'd otherwise vouch for Anker being great.

 

I own a few Anker products and they're pretty reliable all things considered.

The only cables and USB hubs I own that haven't fallen apart or even started to wear out after four years of straight use. I don't see myself switching away from Anker anytime soon.

That was to emphasize the sound of that particular part. It sounds how it looks, Anker. But English isn't everyones first language so they don't quite grasp that concept. Also your use of emojies is excessive.

Hey Everyone!

 

Yep we're officially Anker's charging partner here at Linus Tech Tips. There would have been some sort of official announcement this year, but due to certain events it got a bit messy and it was a slow roll out.

 

Let me know if there are questions. 

 

Thanks! :)
