Industry grade materials, premium circuitry and a 92% efficient battery cell (up to 10% above the industry average) ensure complete reliability.

World Famous Warranty
At Anker, we believe in our products. That's why we back them all with an 18-month warranty and provide friendly, easy-to-reach support.

For Optimal Use:
• Use the included cable, your original cable or a third-party certified one (such as MFi).
• Compatible with Apple and Android smartphones, tablets (including the Nexus 7) and other USB-charged devices except for the iPod nano, iPod Classic, HP TouchPad, LG G2, Asus and some GPS and Bluetooth devices.
• Do not try to recharge the Astro E3 while it's charging a device, as this may reduce the battery's lifespan.

Anker® Astro3 10000mAh Dual 2A/5V USB Output & 9V/12V DC Output External Battery Pack Charger.

Edit Please note this is for the older version, NOT for the new E version (despite what the Amazon page says). Also I corrected my maths, as pointed out by Ms L Atkins. Thanks for that, I missed out some brackets!

So how many times can you charge your phone? This battery is 70% efficient (nothing is ever 100%). According to their website (ianker.com) use this formula.

Capacity of the External Battery * 70% / Capacity of the Mobile Phone

So for my phone, HTC One V (1500 mAh battery) - (10,000 * 0.7) / 1500 = 4.66, or 4 full charges from 0% to 100% & 1 more charge from 0% to 66%

In testing I achieved 4 full charges from 0% to 100%, & 1 more charge from 0% to 54% before the Astro 3 was totally flat.

It took 2 1/2 hours to fully charge my phone using the S USB slot. It took 3 hours to fully charge my phone using the I USB slot.
(Using the wall charger that came with my phone, it takes 1 1/2 hours to charge my phone from 0% to 100%)

2 USB slots can charge up to 2A (@5V). USB Slot I is for Apple devices, USB Slot S is for Samsung (read Android) devices. Both slots work for any USB device I have tried that is 5V.
This also has a DC out slot that is switchable between 9V & 12V.

Your device will only draw UP TO the Amps that it is designed for. In other words if your wall charger is 1A 5V, it is ok to use this external battery, your device will only draw 1A. The external battery itself can supply up to 2A depending on your device, just make sure its 5V.

I also tried charging my netbook, an EeePC (1000HE) made by Asus, with an 8400 mAh battery that lasts for around 7 hours.

I'm very satisfied about this external battery.
It is very handy during conferences or when I'm moving a lot during the day and I don't have the chance to connect my smartphone to a power source.
The 10000 mAh capacity is enough for at least 4 charges of my Nexus 5 and the output (3000 mA) is very fast: it is easily possible to use the smartphone with highly consuming applications, such as GPS navigation, and still charging it using this battery.
I highly recommend it.

I have several mobile devices and take two to three with me when I travel my iPhone, iPad, and/orkindle. I try to find outlets at airports to plug them in, but so do the rest of the travelers. Each device's battery has a different length of life, my iPad battery runs out more quickly, followed by my iPhone and then my kindle. By carrying all three, I hoped that using them one by one I would have a mobile device for my East to West Coast travels. Now, we have external battery chargers, and they are a life saver.

This zanier battery pack came well packaged, easy to open and encased in a strong plastic case. The battery has an on/off button and also has auto shut off. A blue LED indicates when the battery is turned on. While you are charging your device the LED is on. This battery pack is a very good size, small, light weight, and can be easily placed in a purse or pocket.

This battery charger is ideal for charging a smartphone to a full charge more quickly than others I have used, and my iPad much more slowly. . My iPhone is an older model, and the battery runs out more quickly. I keep this portable power bank with me fully charged to use when my iPhone needs re-charging. This battery uses Lithium Ion battery technology and carries a 10000mAh capacity. I keep this portable power bank in my purse with the charging cable, so that it is convenient for use at any time. The battery pack is white with a green strip on either end, quite attractive. You must provide your own able to fit your mobile devices. Note: I was provided this product to use and review.

I bought this to take on long cycling and camping trips, so that I could use my phone GPS and not have to worry about being left in the wilderness with a dead phone. It charges my smartphone about 3 times over and seems to do it just as quickly as plugging my phone into the mains. The battery is a bit longer and thicker than a phone and is lightweight enough to carry everywhere in my handbag, but still feels substantial and good quality.

The first one I had did go faulty after a few months -- it still worked fine to charge my phone, but took over 2 days plugged into the mains to fully charge up the battery pack itself. (Anker's website says it should take 6-7 hours!) The manufacturer replaced it straightaway when I e-mailed them, and I'm pretty confident this was just a fluke, as the product has a good warranty and seems well-made. Overall, I'm really happy with this and I can't imagine living with my power-sucking smartphone now without it!

Bought this when I got my new S4 as opposed to getting a new battery due to the high price. Couldn't be happier. Clever device that you can charge any USB device from. Comes with an array of adapters for most devices too! Pretty much lives in my bag and comes with me everywhere as an emergency device. Highly recommended.

Edit : I stopped carrying this around and I ended up only using this battery about 6/7 times for camping. Now I'm going camping again so I've tried charging the battery for 20 hours but its bust and won't take a charge, just stays with 1 blue light. Will have to buy a new one.
