Finally, an excellent product that does what it says.

I rarely recommend products unless they perform particularly well. And I must say, having purchased these types of products before, I have always been letdown by poor design, sheer bulk and lack of performance. Not so with this great add on.
Well designed, It's simple to mount and dismount and I only use it when I need a charge on the go. The rest of the time it's left in my briefcase ready for the occasion I overrun on the phone, 3G mail or Facebook.
It arrived about 3 weeks ago and has been used as a backup supply around 10 times. It charges my iPhone5 Quickly and acts as an excellent speaker too. A full charge will take my phone battery to 100% and have some left over too. It's enough to get thru a weekend without a power cable.
Charging the product takes allot longer than the iPhone battery, so you'll need to leave it on charge overnight. If connected to your iPhone you needn't worry as it avoids continually charging once your phone is topped unto 100%. You'll be using a micro usb connector but you can still use your iPhone usb charger (for supply). I really think this item is great. It works and have recommended to friends, family and business associates too.
It could be lighter, and probably will be as battery technology develops. But for the here and now, It's great gadget to have in your bag, briefcase, rucksack or weekend case. Well done Anker.
