    This charger surprised me. I took with me to Greece (there were a lot of purchases made for this trip see other reviews lol) I had this and a Mycharge mini battery that plugs into the wall. I had my sister (world traveler like myself) and my aunt and mom (New to international travel) and I knew that while my sister and I knew to bring converters my mom and aunt would not. Charging it took forever! I was warned about this beforehand and did a little research to expedite this. There is a five port charger made by the same company and it has two special ports that decrease charging times significantly (was true to form). I used both religiously in Greece when we weren’t near a plug and didn’t want to lug around my adapter. I handed the Mycharge to my mom and aunt and they used it for about two days before I had to plug it in. The Anker charged two iPads and two iPhones for two days almost three before needing a recharge. Without the 5port the charging from zero to full took about a day, the port cut the time down to 8 hours or less. Now my sister wants one. Pros capacity (you can do 6-8 phones, 2 ipads, a computer with the appropriate usb all with ease), size (wasn’t too big but not small and it comes with this cute little accessory pouch), price (it was 49.99 and with the buy three accessories get 25% off it came to 38 bucks), even at full price it’s a steal for a 20k battery. Cons takes forever to charge (expected for such a large battery), buyin the other accessory is necessary (do not buy the combo pack for 100 buying the five port and the Anker battery was waaay cheaper and you get five frigging ports. You can’t charge it and have a device attached to it for charging (didn’t care as much because I got five friggin ports lol) Get it (and the five port) you will be glad you did especially for long car trips, travel and if you have as much tech as me and never enough USB ports.

    I thought I was making a huge mistake because the price was way lower than the rest like Mophie, Insignia (which I think is Best Buy’s genetic brand) , and the Samsung packs. Oddly enough this worked way better than I thought. I used to hold the sentiment that battery packs were stupid, but then we were going to Orlando, Florida and I knew my phone junkie self wouldn’t be able to find an outlet in the parks. So I bought this one knowing my phone’s battery was gonna bleed with all the video and photos I’d be shooting. I also thought in a worse case scenario if my SUV broke down along the way even though it is new I should keep a battery for emergency purposes. Like if a wreck occurred I couldn’t go back in the car expecting the battery to work. Anyway this worked awesome. Took a while to charge up which made me anxious bc I started charging it last minute but it lasted a long time. It didn’t discharge or die in the heat of Florida either like I thought it might bc it was cheap. I’ll be honest. I expected this thing to work for only like 2 Charges. But nah I’d charge my device, my brother would bring his back to 100%, and my cousin charged his. And it still had 3 out of its 4 lights active at the end of the day. It’s a smart buy.

    A life saver!

    Bought this portable charger as an emergency because my phone's battery died on me and I still needed to get an Uber home. Even though it saved me that day, I have found that it has become an essential part of my Tech kit. Sometimes you're just not at a Starbucks or your car breaks down and being able to charge your phone after extensive use of battery draining GPS services can help you have something less to worry about. This specific portable charger will last you for more than a couple of charges (7 charges according to the box). It has 4 indicator lights and I never get past the third light after fully charging my phone. Slowly losing charge after days of not using it, has not been an issue for me. The only cons for me are that the package did not include iPhone cables but I already had some with me and it does take a long time to fully charge.

    Heavy, but powerful - great for trips!

    I've been wanting an Anker for awhile now, and with an upcoming vacation trip to the West Coast, I decided it was an ideal time to buy one and test it out before taking it on a business trip. The unit worked really well - takes some time to charge (10 hours when you first get it), and it charges a LOT more slowly than my phone's turbo charger plugged into an outlet, but it works really well when you're out and about and your phone gets down to the dreaded red bar. It's heavy - not surprising since its a power bank - but something to consider. All in all, I'm really happy I bought it and I would for sure recommend it to anyone looking for a backup power supply when you're travelling.

    So Much Power

    I bought this for my daughter when she went to Spain in March. It's a little weighty but it is so powerful. It's about the size of a TV remote but a little heavier. Fits in her purse nicely. She never had a dead phone out there and a few of her friends were using it as well because their little chargers didn't cut it when you're out all day with no electricity around. She just used it in Orlando a couple of weeks ago at Universal Studios and Sea World. Works like a charm. Once fully charged she told me it charged her Iphone around 20 times! The charge on it lasts around 3 days before you have to charge it again. I've recommended this charger to many people.

    Awesome Charger

    Bought this to replace my $90 one that has been through better days. The only thing I do not like about this charger in comparison to my old one is that I can plug it into any outlet and it would charge up and charge my phone at the same time. This one does not. Although, I do get more charges out of this one in comparison to my old one. Charge time is also extremely slow for the brick itself. Charge times to the phone are fast. I like that it comes with a protection sleeve for transporting. This thing is heavy as well. Overall, good charger.

    Solid battery bank

    I bought this battery bank so I could have a faster, long-term option for keeping my devices supplied. I found this bank very useful. It does take quite a while to charge it up fully, but it works as advertised, fully charging my phone seven times before needing a recharge. The 2.1A port is good, not as fast as my 10W iPad charger. One thing to note is that the user needs to push the button on the side before the unit starts charging a phone, it will not just charge with a cable attached.

    I went threw 3 different chargers before purchasing this one that was cheaper then the rest, the main reason returning the other ones is some what false advertising being that they dont charge phones or get charged as fast as advised and this one charges decently fast and the only problem I have with this is it takes a long time to charge up and the last light doesn't ever stop blinking when charging it.
