Doesn't seem to want to recharge itself,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anker 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank with PowerIQ Technology for iPhone 6 Plus 5S 5C 5 4S, iPad Air 2 Mini 3, Samsung Galaxy S6 S5 S4 Note Tab, Nexus, HTC, Motorola, Nokia, PS Vita, Gopro, more Phones and Tablets () (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Used it a three times on Apple iPhone 4S, and accomplished its mission completely. Eventually the unit was depleted of power to about 50% where two, blue lights were lit (no blinking). Plugged the Anker into the wall at about 21:00, and left it in overnight. It's now 09:00 the next morning, and the charge is between 50-75%. Twelve hours and it appears Anker charger does not charge itself directly from the mains in the wall. At least not very quickly. This might take a week...

I've got the same problem, do you know how to fix the problem?

Not being an electrician, I discovered that recharging doesn't work via a surge protector/multiple input device. It has to have its own dedicated line into the wall. Just avoid anything other than plugging in directly.

Same issue for me, I have tried using an Apple adapter and a generic one. Both work directly to charge my phone, but the unit will not take a charge...?
