Amazing! I got this product for my mom since she replaced her old Nokia with an iPhone 4s.Of course battery life differs drastically between those models. As a result the phone would run out of juice most of the time.Pros:-Compact in size. (9cms length 2.2cms width)-Sturdy aluminum body. (Always a good thing inside a purse)-Bright silver color. (Easier to locate in a purse)-Charges in less than 2 hours using a USB wall charger.-Fully charged the phone twice on a single charge with juice left.-Handy accessories pouch and cable included. ( mini & micro USB + iPhone plug)-Auto cut off feature if not in use.Cons:-None so far.Now we no longer worry about my mom’s phone running out of charge in case of emergencies.Highly recommended!!
Convenient small size. Nice back-up power for an iPhone The Anker Astro Mini is a nice small back-up power supply to keep your power-hungry iPhone running. I ran a test with my iPhone 5 to see just how much juice you could expect.I drained my iPhone 5 down to 10%, then used the Astro mini to recharge it to 100%. The Astro still had some charge, so I drained my iPhone 5 down to 10% again, then used the Astro mini to recharge. This time I only got back to 40% charged before the Astro was done.The way I look at it, you can get ~1.2 full iPhone 5 charges from one Astro charge. Not bad and just what I needed to keep running thru a long day.I recharged the Astro from my computer USB port. It took ~ 6 hours to fully recharge (charging light turned off). It might charge a little faster with a plug-in charger, but you should plan on 6 hours (or overnight) to fully recharge.The instructions are simple and the carrying bag is fine. There are a number of adapters for included charging cord. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5 “lightning” connector is not one of them. If the lightning connector was included, it would be a 5 star.
Good item, but don’t forget… This is a very good product and serves a vital need to those who need to charge their device when away from a plug. The only thing that I initially missed in the directions was that you must press the button next to the USB slots before it will start charging.
