    Wow, what powerful battery! This review is on Anker 15000 mAh black battery pack. This battery pack is a real powerhouse of energy and in my test results it performed extremely well in supplying a charging current to an iPad 3 and an iPad 2. It is also designed to allow you to charge two items at the same time. I also tested the battery pack charging and iPad 3 and an iPhone 4 simultaneously. It comes with connectors and other accessories that you need to make it more useful. I was also able to charge the battery and charge two devices at the same time using the battery while it was charging. (This is not recommended to do) You may need to use your original charging cables for some devices so take them with you if you need them.It is a great power resource to keep your USB recharged devices operating on those long work or school days or while you are traveling. This battery pack is a powerful source of power and many people like me are power users of their smart phones and tablets and need a battery like this. If you are constantly using your phone or tablet then you know that they will run out of power sometime during the day or evening. If you are not near an AC wall outlet with your charger or in your car with a charger what can you do? It is especially important to have some way to recharge if you are traveling in a plane, in the middle of a school classroom or on a bus or train. In addition many of the newer tablets are real power hungry devices and it takes a lot to recharge them.Here is a powerful battery pack with two USB ports. It can charge your tablet devices or charge your smart phone and if you want it can do both of them simultaneously. I charged two iPhones at the same time in my testing. One USB output is rated at 5 VDC and 2 Amps and the other is rated at 5 VDC and 1 Amp. The unit also has an LED flashlight in it for emergencies. It uses Lithium-Ion battery technology and carries a 15000 mAh capacity. It has five powerful high quality batteries rated at 3000 mAh each. This is a large sized battery pack and it weighs in weighs in at 10 3/4 ounces. This battery pack will fit easily into a brief case, back pack or a computer bag or a large purse. I have included a video of the batteries features and I hope it is helpful to you.When I test a battery I do an extensive set of tests that fully charges the battery and then I use it to charge devices and make sure that it is fully depleted when my tests are done. I time each test and document the results as the test progresses. I then calculate the mAh of capacity that the battery supplied and I then calculate its charging efficiency. This process takes from 3 hours to, in very large batteries, about a day for testing. I don’t take any short cuts or guess and every battery has these tests performed on it and documented. This is to assure that the battery is tested and it performs well. If a battery has performed poorly I then run the tests again to verify the results.What’s in the box?* The Anker 15000 mAh black battery pack* The battery pack comes with an instruction manual* The battery does not come with an AC wall charger. Use the Micro USB charging tip for charging the battery. You can use a computer USB 2.0 port to charge the battery pack but it is 15000 mAh and it will take between 27 to 30 hours. The manual states to use a 1.5 Amp USB wall charger and it will take 9 to 10 hours but I recommend using a 2.1 amp AC wall charger if you have one.* There is one charging cable for the battery pack or your smart devices. It is 27.5 inches long.* 4 various smart phone and device connectors like a Micro USB plug, a Mini USB plug, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 30 pin plug and an Apple 30 pin connector.* A nice carrying bagThis is a very good product and below I have listed its features and benefits as well as my test data for your review. Please take the time to quickly watch the video and if you have any questions send me a comment and I will try to help you.The Anker 15000 mAh battery pack features:* Powerful 15000 mAh capacity specification* The unit is compact in size and weighs in at 10 ¾ ounces this is the smallest size 15000 mAh battery pack available.* It is attractively designed in black plastic. The front has a push button for starting the charging of your device or to read out the battery’s charged capacity using LED lights.* It has LED lights that show the battery charge. When 1 LED is flashing the charge is 0 to 25%, 1 LED steady on means 25 to 50%, 2 LEDs on means 50 to 75%, 3 LEDs on means 75 to 99% and 4 LEDs on means 100%.* There is a built in LED flashlight you can turn on the flashlight by quickly pressing the on button twice and you can turn it off the same way.* I was able to charge an iPhone 4 and a second iPhone 4 simultaneously while charging the Anker battery pack. I am asked all of…

    Tips for the Non-Techies I love this charger but here are some tips for those who aren’t techies…#1: This does not come with a wall charger – BUT – if you have an iPad or similar device with a USB port, that will work just fine. Save the 10 bucks and don’t buy one separately.#2: You must push the power button to charge. I know, I know, it seems like a no brainer but I don’t have to push a power button on my wall plug so it doesn’t come naturally to me to think to push a power button to charge something.#3: To re-charge the Anker, you plug the connector into the small port on the side labeled ‘In’. I felt like an idiot for thinking I should plug into the USB slots in the front to re-charge the Anker but hey, the ‘In’ and ‘Out’ are the same slot on my iPad so why would I look for an ‘In’ and an ‘Out’ on the Anker?#4: The Anker comes pre-charged… mostly. I ordered this rush for a trip and didn’t have time to charge it before I left. It powered my iPad to 74% straight out of the box. Pretty awesome for last minute folks like myself.Once again, I’m sure this is low-level ‘no-duh’ info but I know there are a few non-techie folks who might appreciate knowing this stuff.

    Amazing Technology, long lasting charge! First I will state that Anker sent me this product to review for my honest personal opinion on the product.I received the Anker Astro E5 in the mail just in time for a scheduled meetup with Ingress friends. For those of you not familiar with this, it is an Android phone based game that combines augmented reality and geocaching. The game is VERY HEAVY on battery usage on the Samsung GS2. During these meetups, I usually end up switching a battery out or leaching off of someone elses battery pack. So when Anker offered this to me for testing, I was all over it.The pack came precharged about half way. As soon as I got it, I put it on to charge and it was fully charged within the 4 hour timeframe prior to the meetup. The device is charged using a micro USB port on the side. It did not come with a wall charger, which I found somewhat weird. What if I didn’t have a USB option to charge it with? It did come with a USB cable that had multiple options for connectors at the end. I only used the micro USB for my GS2 during my review time.The device is very well built. It has a very nice little LED flashlight which came in handy during the late night meetup while walking down the streets of town. The device shows it’s charge through 4 lights on the device. When they are fully lit, it has that much charge (think 25% per light). When I started, all 4 lights were lit. I will say that my use of the external pack is probably different from many. I believe it is meant to recharge your device when it gets low. I personally use it as battery for my phone. So Ingress was running on my phone the entire time that the meetup was going on. We walked around town for about 4 hours or more. Once the meetup was done and I got back to my car, I pulled the E5 out of my back pocket and noticed 2 things right off the bat. First thing I noticed, it was cool to the touch (or as cool as it could be expected after sitting in my back pocket on a warm night). Second thing I noticed, I still had 4 charged lights on the pack! HOLY COW!! After 4 hours of continuous use (on the 1A side) there was very little drainage of the E5! Very nice! It’s great to have a product that I don’t have to worry about if a backup power source is needed! No more need for my second battery pack!! WOOT WOOT!After this meetup, the E5 was stored in my car for almost a week. I checked it today prior to doing this review and it was still at 3 lights full!So now for the usual pros and cons of the review:Pros:Long lasting charge even after 4 hours of continuous useCharges both Android and Apple devices simultaneously. It has a dedicated USB port for each of the technologies. You can use both for Android devices, but the Apple port will charge faster and could possibly damage your device.LED Flashlight. Not a necessity, but it was really nice to have it as an option.LightweightMultiple connectors on the USB cable. Allows for only one USB cable to be carried and quick switching between differently connected devices.It charges the Lightning Adapter Apple products. I don’t have any of these personally. But I do know that it is the first Anker product that is built with that tech in mind.Cons:No wall charger. You are expected to have a USB charging option. I guess this makes sense since the device is for recharging USB devices anyway. But I just felt like a wall charger could have been useful, especially if my PC USB ports are currently charging my USB devices…Awkward to carry. I’d like to see a belt clip or something for these devices. Currently, it has to either go in my pocket or I have to carry it around. It may be different for you depending on your use.Overall, this product went above and beyond my expectations. Now, if I could just find a way to carry it around without having to hold it in my pocket, increasing the temperature around it…
