Top Customer Reviews
Arrived on time, well packaged, and great price. I am now never going to have the excuse that my phone battery ran out whilst out of the house. Would definitely recommend.
I have topped up phone already 4 times and the battery still shows three quarters full.
I purchased this model about 6 months ago and love it. It has been round the world, survived and has kept my nexus 5 powered waiting at airport lounges and on flights watching movies as well as in my work bag, proving power to my devices without having to take a wall charger and scrabble for an outlet.
What it was reduced a few days ago to under £14 on amazon as well as stating that it was the 3rd generation, I sprang to order another. On arrival, I found it was the same, 2nd generation and contacted amazon support. To their credit, they refunded me and asked me to order a replacement, promising me it would be the 3rd generation. I am dismayed, having received the replacement today, only to find it is the 2nd generation!
What I feel potential buyers should consider before buying this:
Unfortunately, amazon cannot send the correct item, despite two attempts in one week.
Other than this, if you are looking for a portable usb power bank, this has plenty of reserve power to recharge, as a benchmark, my nexus 5 over 8 times and keeps its own charge for around 3 months to boot! I've taken a picture against my nexus to give you a better idea of size.
Would I buy it again, or recommend it to my friends /family:

EDITED 9/12/15: Anker took the initiative themselves to contact me on the back of this review. They offered to make up for the issue by sending a replacement. Although I haven't had the chance to test the newer replacement, honestly, their excellent customer service alone has converted me to buying their products in the future without hesitation. Well done. Who else takes the time to pre-emptively contact customers?
As is seemingly the requirement these days, smartphones have sadly underpowered batteries - gone are the days of mobile phones going 4 days without looking at a plug socket!!!
I have in the past made the mistake of buying those cheap "e B a y" specials, quoting phenomenal figures like 18000mAh, and then struggling to charge anything at all. Thankfully, I'm not one of those "once bitten, twice shy" types and I carried on looking for a portable battery charger that would actually be worth buying - Thats when I first found Anker. I have purchased a number of their products and I have to say, they have impressed every time. The quality and performance is second to none and the Customer Service is unsurpassed in any realm of retail.
I Have previously bought other Anker devices (such as gen2 Astro 3 12000mAh battery (for £35.99) 18 month ago), and on occasion like this received samples to test, and I have to say the same theme of quality Continues throughout albeit now at lower prices.
The packaging is avery stylish minimalist, brown cardboard box with a printed sleeve. Clearly Anker arent into overpackaging, thats a good thing, and getting into the box is no problem with no need to destroy the box. Inside is the battery, micro-USB charging cable, a little black carry bag and the "instructions". All very neatly packed and protected.
The Battery itself is so very obviously well made, a premium quality product, with a good heft given the batteries.Read more ›
The item itself is chunky, not too heavy and gives an impresson of solidity and quality. It just looks ... an attractive bit of kit. It arrived (I would guess) about 80% charged and it took about 45 mins to charge fully, when connected to a USB port on my PC.
I am delighted with this unit - it seems to do exactly what it says on the tin! The tiny gripe? The two connectors supplied (one Apple 30 pin adapter, one Samsung ditto) look a bit flimsy (and Samsung is misspelled!). Not a worry for me, as I'm an Apple user and would use the USB connectors supplied with their products.
Review edited 19/9/13 and this added:
I charged the Anker Astro E5 fully and plugged it into my iPad2, which had only 1% battery capacity left. These were the results:
After 1 hour - 34%.
After 2 hours - 63%.
After 3 hours - 88%.
100% capacity was reached after a fraction under 4 hours (about 3hr 55min). There were still two lights showing on the unit, indicating 25-50% charge remaining.
Frankly, I think that is superb performance! Delighted with the product...!!!
