How does this battery receive its own charge? Does it come with a plug and lead to plug into a wall socket? 17 Dec 2013
It comes with a usb lead which is the same as a blackberry lead and then you have to get (if you havent already got) a three pin plug with the usb attachment. Any more question will be happy to answer Nick
Can I continue to use my phone while it is plugged into this charger or do I have to wait before the phone is charged up? 8 Mar 2014
You can use your phone while it is plugged like on a regular charger.
Hello , Can you charge the battery while at the same time you charge a smartphone/tablet etc ??? Thanks 21 Mar 2015
The instructions that come with the Anker says "Do not try to charge and discharge the Astro 3 at the same time as this may reduce the battery lifespan. So even though it is possible they indicate it should not be done unless you want to reduce the useful life of the Anker Astro 3.
does this have a smart port like if the port gives 3amps but you phones rating is 2.5 will it only give it 2.5 or will it give it 3amp's 27 Oct 2014
It has 2 x standard 1 amp plus 1 x Smart (for fastest charging) . The newest generation has 3 smart ports (Power IQ System)
Yes, you can get 4 amp output if you only use the battery to charge one device.
The Anker solar panel can charge any device, as long as you have the correct lead. This charges through micro usb (not mini micro usb btw!), so you should be fine :) Btw, great idea! Unlimited power!
Yes, they are Lithium Ion, Anker themselves mention this if you ask them about charging characteristics, memory effect, etc
It weighs 299 grams. Less that a third of a bag of sugar / weight of an average sized book.

Hi! I would like to buy this product for my iPad 3. Please can you tell me if the charger will charge my iPad 4 Apr 2014
According to the Anker website it will charge the iPad3. But as the iPad3 battery is almost 12,000mAh you would probably only get an 80-90% charge. Astro do a 20,000mAh Pro2 which would give you one full charge and maybe an extra 40-50%.
