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.
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...!!!
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?
From the get go, it was fully charged (I assumed, all fours blue LEDs lit) which was a nice plus. The packaging was extremely eco-friendly all being made of paper and a recyclable plastic bag that protected the actual Astro E5 battery unit. In the box was the Astro E5 power pack, a Micro-USB cable and a soft case to protect the glossy battery case.
Feature wise, it's a very large capacity battery pack. Managed to charge my iPad twice over from ~20% and Lumia 1020 from 0% all on a single charge. Extremely fast too, definitely no complaints with the PowerIQ technology in this. However, I have come across with an issue using thrid-party lightning cables with the pack; both ends of the cable got extremely hot and continued to drain power after the iPad was unplugged therefore running the battery pack to 0% without realizing. I have had no issues when using the official/genuine lightning cable though, so recommend using this. Charge time for the power pack itself was just over 6 hours from 0% (using a 2.1a charger), which is very acceptable considering the capacity.
Feature wise, I mentioned PowerIQ. This is the technology that Anker includes with this pack that will automatically shut off the charging process when the plugged-in device reaches 100% charge, to stop wastage in the Astro E5. Other features include a pretty useful white LED located between the USB ports for seeing the dark. A nice bonus indeedy! You can press the power button on the side of the Astro E5 to enable the battery pack/see what charge is remaining, holding down down this button for 5 seconds will enable the LED mentioned above.Read more ›
