5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are utterly fantastic. Very light, exceedingly comfortable, and the sound quality is superb.

And for once, the enhanced 'superhuman hearing' actually works - i genuinely could hear footfalls much clearer in games.

Worth the money, without a doubt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, but check your car vents first!, 3 July 2016
Disclaimer: Review sample was kindly provided by Anker, all opinions contained within this review are my own.

The Anker Air Vent car mount is a device intended to hold your phone on the dash of your car, using
the vanes in your air vents as a mount point.

It does this by using a silicon 'claw' - stong enough to grip tight to the air vent, yet soft enough
so that it won't damage the vent.

This is where i ran into an issue - the claw was simply too large to fit in my air vent (Seat Ibiza).

I current use a Kenu Airfame, which does fit the vent, but i would have preferred the Anker to have
worked. The Anker unit sticks out a bit more from the vent, due to the fact you can angle the mount
to suit your viewing angle, and the Airfame does not.

The Anker Air Vent car mount is very well made - it doesn't feel cheap, and the phone clip is sturdy.
I was able to test in another car (Vauxhall Astra) and the mount fitted a lot better.

Pros:
well made
sturdy grip
adjustable angle on the mount

Cons:
Large silicon claw means it may not fit narrower vents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger, 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disclaimer: Review sample was kindly provided by Anker, all opinions contained within this review are my own.

Anker's portable charger range have always been top sellers, and this model is no different.

An unassuming device, it is simplicity itself to use. There is one micro-usb port, in order to charge the unit,
and two ports to provide power to your phone, tablet etc.

A button on the side will wake up the 4 blue LEDs, providing a clear indication of the current charge level,
and of course these light up when charging the unit itself.

Both charging ports can be used simultaneously, and there is sufficient capacity to charge most devices
at least once - most phones can be charged 3 or 4 times before it becomes an issue. Anker chargers
use PowerIQ, which delivers the charge at the maximum available for your device.

My charger has already found a great use - providing a mobile power supply my Raspberry Pi :)

Once again, another quality product from Anker

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace my ageing Buffalo LinkStation, and was recommended this by a friend. He was right - this is a seriously competent NAS box for the money.

The big selling point of this is the range of apps you can download for the Synology - media server, download station, ftp server, database server, webcam surveillance station - its an impressive list.

I paired this with a couple of WD 2TB drives, and this will keep me going for quite some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality speaker, 14 May 2016
Disclaimer: Review sample was kindly provided by Anker, all opinions contained within this review are my own.

The Anker Premium Bluetooth Speaker arrives in Anker's trademark tidy packaging - very little wasted space, and all recyclable materials.

Contained within the box:

- Speaker
- Carry case
- 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable
- USB to micro-USB charging cable
- instruction manual

The speaker is a rather handsome piece of kit. A clean and elegant design, its curved top and bottom with a soft felt-like base that won't mark or damage any surface you rest the speaker on. At 21x6x6cm its not too big, and has enough weight to feel pleasantly solid, without feeling excessively heavy. The piano black finish is ceratinly pretty, but shows up fingerprints very easily.

Turning on the unit via the top button, it emits a startup tone, which rather neatly shows off the quality of the bass. Slightly annoyingly, it also does this when you power it off, and there doesn't appear to be any way to turn it off.

Connection to a phone or MP3 player is simple. The speaker starts up automatically in pairing mode - simply search from the Bluetooth menu of your device for the speaker, and pair. The supplied 3.5mm cable is there for connecting up devices without Bluetooth.

For testing, I connected the speaker to my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, and ran through a number of different tracks.

The range of the speaker is impressive, with excellent bass and treble. Ramping up the volume caused no issues, with distortion only creeping in at maximum. Rock, dance, jazz and pop were handled with no fuss.

Bluetooth range seems good, with connection issues only showing up after 7 metres or so of separation, or if a number of objects were in the way.

Battery life is quoted as 8 hours, and at the moment its been running around 5 hours without issue.

The carry case is very good, and feels able to protect the speaker from bumps and minor drops. I would have liked to see some space in the case for the cables - it wouldn't take much, and would certainly be handy, especially for the audio cable.

Make no mistake, this is a quality speaker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for, 10 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been on the lookout for something like this for some time - my car is old enough to not have a bluetooth system built in, and I i wasn't looking to spend a lot of money to get the functionality. I have reviewed Anker products in the past, but this one I happily paid for myself :)

However, at £10, this is an absolute steal. Clarity in calls is great (i have a Seat Ibiza, so its not the quietest car!) and streaming music is an absolute breeze - no problems whatsoever using my Sony Z3 Compact and Google Play Music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the price point, 4 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Using an iPad mini for work on the go, i was in need of a reliable, inexpensive keyboard in order to maximise my productivity.
Having reviewed several of Anker's other products favourably, I thought I'd spend some of my own money and try their
Keyboard and Case.

The unit adds little weight, has a phenomenal battery life, and includes a solid case to protect the ipad from minor drops
and bumps.

Its very, very easy to type on, and I've found no issues with its operation.

The only minor niggle I have is there is no way to clip the case shut - even a velcro tab would have sufficed.

All in all, very happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute steal, 4 May 2015
Disclaimer: Review sample was kindly provided by Anker, all opinions contained within this review are my own.

Anker have once again been kind enough to send me another one of their products for review, this time a 4 port
usb charger for the car.

As always, exceedingly well packed - minimum of packaging, minimum of fuss and almost completely recyclable.

The charger itself is compact, and nicely finished with the aluminium top providing a robust feel to the product.

I've previously had issues with chargers not providing enough charge to power my phone - happy to report this
had no issues. Having 4 ports means i can charge my phone, my bluetooth headset, and still have 2 ports left
in case a passenger needs to charge something.

£11.99? Bargain.
