This review is from: [Upgraded Quality] Anker Astro E5 16000mAh Compact Portable Charger (2nd Generation, Premium Panasonic Battery Cells Inside, External Battery Power Bank) with PowerIQ Technology (Black) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
After seeing other reviews on the Amazon site I had high hopes for this product but am at this stage disappointed and annoyed that it doesn't work! After receiving the product today and charging it to the max the first issue was that the built in torch refused to work, although curiously it operated whilst it was attached to the USB cable whilst charging and then not at all once detached. However the main and most important problem is that it refuses to charge my IPhone 5. Just to make sure that wasn't a problem with either the phone or the cable supplied the same USB cable I used to attach the phone to the charger works perfectly when attached to a mains unit and the phone therefore charges without any issues. I can't help but notice that another recent reviewer has also had the same problem with his unit and an IPhone 5 so am concerned that the manufacturer has issues with the latest IPhones. Needless to say I will be contacting Anker to find out what, if any, solutions can be found to these problems...watch this space!
