2.0 out of 5 stars Seemed OK, but broke after two uses..., 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little larger than expected, but fine. Charged batteries as per the chart inside the packaging. rather flimsy construction, but all fine ...
HOWEVER - 2nd time I used it, one of the springs holding the tension on one of the four adjustable terminals (spring loaded, to accommodate different sized batteries) came away and is now rattling around inside the works, rendering the charger useless for charging anything other than two batteries at once! Returned to Amazon for a refund. Pity, but not very good quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely excellent!, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is heavy - but not stupidly so - it'd sit happily in a rucksack or carry case.
It is quite large - but again, not stupidly so - and it feels nice in the hand
It takes 12-13 hours to charge - but that's not SO much longer than overnight.
BUT...
This battery is phenomenal...! It charged my iPad Air 2 from 5% to 100% in a couple of hours, then charged a SanDisk Wireless Media Drive from about 20% to 100% in three hours. Then it charged my iPhone 5s from 10% to 100% AND its Anker battery cover from zero to 100% in three hours. And it still has a wee bitty charge (admittedly tiny) left in it...! Ideal for when you're on a weekend away and not sure about access to a power point / don't want to carry multiple chargers, or when your device needs a charge, but you want to use it away from a power point (e.g. iPad in bed to watch a video).

Seriously - these guys from Anker make excellent, practical, well thought-out kit. Their customer / after sales service is exemplary and their packaging and branding are environmentally friendly and eye-catching. Can't recommend these guys enough.

No - I don't own shares in Anker, but I wish I did. And they aren't paying me anything. I own about 10 of their products and each has been excellent. Highly recommended.

It's a little bit basic, but it does the job of sorting assorted cables, flash drives etc well. The lining is rather LOUD as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - as usual for Anker!, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No - I am not an Anker employee, or connected to the company in any way, other than as a customer!
There were not three but FOUR screen protectors in the pack, which contains clear instructions and all the kit you need. I followed the instructions to the letter and was then annoyed to see ONE speck of dust under the screen protector. OK - scrub that one! For the second try, I used a piece of blu-tac to hold the centre of the protector, COMPLETELY removed the film protecting the adhesice side (contrary to the instructions!) while holding my breath and positioned the screen protector perfectly. Then removed the blu-tac, removed the film protecting the other side and - voila - perfect ! I am sure it IS possible to do a perfect job following the instructions, but my way worked for me!

This is another excellent quality product from Anker at a very reasonable price. The protector is immaculate - you would not know it was there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb case!, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have spent a considerable time researching iPhone 5s cases, including getting at least one that was less than satisfactory. My criteria were:
- covers and secures the phone
- sensible compromise between high protection against bumps / breakage and a slim, non-bulky design
- value for money
- elegant, functional, unfussy design and appearance
- ease of use / access to functions, buttons etc
- preferably in a natural material (eg leather)
- preferably available in black, to match all my other tech kit

This looks to be a superb case. It is well packaged (box was a little bashed though) and on opening, there is the unmistakeable small of real (not fake) leather. The iPhone 5s fitted safely, easily and snugly into the case. There appears to be no danger of it accidentally coming loose. The corner sections that fix the phone in the case and the closure seem to be secure enough, with no danger that they will damage the bezel of the phone, as others have reported. Dunno if this is luck, or they got part of a bad batch. It is remarkably slim, neat and does not add bulk.

The entire phone is completely and securely covered, except for
- the sleep/wake button and a small part of the `top' of the phone not protected by the closure of the case
- the section to one side for the ring/silent switch & volume buttons
- the headphone socket and speaker on the `bottom' of the phone

So - you will have to open the case in order to charge the phone (this is not a problem for me) and to take the phone out of the case in order to access the SIM card tray (hopefully not a regular occurrence anyway). One potential drawback is that the hinge between the case and the cover for the screen looks a little flimsy and might (as it works and loosens over time - it is leather) compromise the security of the closure, but I will see how that goes over time.

So a very enthusiatic ***** for now, but will report back in a few weeks.

Update on 2nd September 2014 - case still looks superb and still doing a great job. The hinge remains secure and so the review remains ***** :-)

So says my elderly mother, for whom this was a Christmas present. Light, very warm and snug - she loves it...!

Edit - so much so, that she has asked me to get her another one for the country!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this because I found The Tain unbelievably tedious. I've got an English degree and love e.g. Beowulf, Gawain and the Green Knight, Piers Plowman etc, but The Tain left me cold. This was also the unanimous view of my book group. This does a good job of turning The Tain into something one might begin to appreciate as literature on its own merits. It is certainly not just for teenagers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is basically a good cover, similar to the one for the iPad Mini, but it loses one star for not being real leather (as the one for the iPad mini is) and one star for not having the elastic strap to slide your fingers into while reading, to make sure you don't drop it. Protects well, looks great (sleek, not too bulky), but is a little heavy as well.

Overall, good, but not great.
