5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little gadget
Was going to go for a the bigger 10000mAh battery but thought I've give this a try first because it looked like a nice size and a good compromise.

Very happy with my purchase. The battery looks great, it's very small and comes with a nice little bag. As an iphone 5 user I knew I wasn't going to get an adapter included (it would be nice if Anker do in future)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic battery, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AnkerŪ Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Charger Lipstick-Sized External Battery Power Bank with PowerIQ™ Technology for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 3, Nexus 4, HTC One, One 2 (M8), MOTO G, Sony Xperia Z2, LG G3, G2 Mini, G Pro, most other Smartphones (Apple Adapters- 30 pin and Lightning, NOT Included) - Black (Electronics)
This is a brilliant little battery, it comfortably fits in a pocket (even alongside phone for pocket charging) and holds enough charge to bring my galaxy s3 to full from <20% twice on a single charge and it does it really fas, much faster than most wall chargers.

The only downside is that it can take ages to charge itself, but this is more to do with the capacity of the battery itself, rather than a charging problem.

Also: make sure to press the "go" button when plugging your phone in, it won't start charging by itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good size, reliable and does the job!, 25 July 2014

This is the first portable charger that I have bought (apart from the horrible battery chargers that were around in 2008!) and I'm really pleased with it. I don't have much to compare it to, but it seems to be useful for multiple charges - if only I could remember my lead as well! It's a great size, I can carry it around in my handbag without being too big. My only other comments would be that it takes a long time to charge back up (but then this makes sense when it can be used for multiple charges) and it gets very hot when charging!

Great phone charger. Not too big and charged my Samsung Galaxy S3 from 8% to 100% in 90 minutes and had charge left. Recommend it.

I rarely write product reviews for anything but I've had this about a year now and I'm very impressed. I travel a lot for work so I'm forever running out of phone battery.

I have one of the larger battery packs available (roughly the size of an external hard drive) for travelling but bought this for something more everyday.

It looks great, works fantastically and is very robust for the price! Unfortunately after having it nearly a year mine decided to give up, after much heavy use. I figured, it's just Ģ10 or so I'll buy another one - being always wary of spending ages trying to return things to companies whose service I expected to be awful.

But I figured I'd try so I emailed Anker with a warranty claim and within 48 hours a brand new one was sent out to me (via amazon dispatching with next day delivery). They didn't even want me to have to bother waiting while returning the old device, said just to dispose of it properly.

So all in all; it's solid, light, amazing capacity and charges fast plus, more unusually for little gadgets, comes with fantastic customer support!

Only 4/5 due to the fact you have no way of knowing how much power is left on it: A tiny LED scale on the side or similar would have worked wonders, but it's certainly not a dealbreaker.

Bought this product because I use my phone a lot and it keeps running out of charge. It worked twice and then packed up. Look elsewhere in my opinion!!!!

Have purchased a few of these for my family and friends

Pros
. Small
. Look great
. Powered via micro usb
. Great range of colours

Cons
. No way of telling how much juice is left – a 3 light indicator system would be a great enhancement
. Need to carry around the cable – Great if something could be intergraded into this device

This review is from: AnkerŪ Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Charger Lipstick-Sized External Battery Power Bank with PowerIQ™ Technology for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 3, Nexus 4, HTC One, One 2 (M8), MOTO G, Sony Xperia Z2, LG G3, G2 Mini, G Pro, most other Smartphones (Apple Adapters- 30 pin and Lightning, NOT Included) - Black (Electronics)
On the face of things when it arrived I was impressed by the build quality of the cylinder. Good solid metal construction without being overly heavy or big. It also came with a little pouch which is a nice touch. I wanted something that would last so thought great this is it.

Unfortunately like with many similar charging devices the weakness is not in the charger but the connector cables. The problem is the whole unit is not specifically designed for one phone or one ipod it is supplied with 3 or 4 cheap connectors which flex and break far more easily than if they were an integral part of the design(like normal house hold chargers). They are not designed to be transported and are weaker than the manufacturers cabling. I purchased the 2600mAh version and once fully charged it charged my battery on my phone fully. However after 2 or three outings the interchangeable connector would flex and no longer allow charge.

I was careful with this product and charged my S3 phone in a bag or pocket, however the connectors let it down and ruin what could be a great little charger.
