" ...  Plenty of power after charging my hungry phone.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The wall adapter on the other hand charges the power bank extremely quickly, like 3 hours. ... The wall adapter is bigger than the iPhone wall adapter but has a normal USB-A and USB-C plug, which allows you to charge the iPhone and power bank at the same time. ... Given my interactions with Anker, if I need another power bank I will definitely go to the them in the future. ... Anker, thank you for actually caring about your customers.  ...  "

" ...  Does take some time to charge it from almost dead to full but definitely does a great job when charging other devices.  ...  "
comment
" ...  the best part if you use low power devices it can charge them too just by clicking the button two times it turns green letting you know it’s activated, overall I really recommend Anker!  ...  "
comment
" ...  For me it came down to this or a Jackery portable charger, to replace the Jackery I had. ... The Jackery was cheaper but I have owned Anker cables and they’re well made, so I went with this charger. ... Nothing wrong with Jackery, but this seems to hold more juice and charge a little faster. ... I also like the trickle charge for my wireless earbuds.  ...  "

" ...  It is relatively light and compact - easy to stash in my purse, but it would probably keep dragging my pants down if I tried to carry in my back pocket with my phone.  ...  "

comment
" ...  At $46, there are cheaper 10,000mAh, 18W USB-PD range competitors, although portability and quality win out here. ... This portable 1,000mAh, 18W USB-PD power bank has been no exception. ... FYI, if you don't want/need 18W USB-PD, their PowerCore 10000 Redux saves you $12 for effectively the same product minus USB-PD.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The new one has USB-C port and is similarly light and compact.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The PD port on such a small battery is great/helpful (if you have the right cable -- in my case USB-C to Lightning cables from Anker and Eastern Collective) that charge everything a bit faster - especially when the iPad needs some juice.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you use the USB C port it will charge your newer phones much faster.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The USB-C connection is convenient, as is the USB-A port for charging two devices. ... They claim it should fully charge in 4 hours on a MacBook Pro USB-C adapter.  ...  "

" ...  UPDATE (June 5, 2019): I've had the power bank for about a month when I noticed that when using specific cables and charges, there was a sound I believed to be the coil whine.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It is nice to start to have everything with just a C cable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Never had that happen before with any Anker product or cable so I hope it's a one-off thing and not a downgrade in quality.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I've used Anker power cables for years and I'm glad I took my brother-in-law's recommendation to get this one (he has an older model but was charging all of our devices in Bangkok).  ...  "
comment

comment
" ...  Also being able to charge the battery pack and the phone with the same cable means less to carry with me.  ...  "

comment
" ...  So, great costumer service, i contact them and they did not hesitate to send me a new replacement, and so far it has been working great, i only use it to charge my S9+ and havent had any issues with it, it charges my phone really fast, the only downside is that i was expecting to get at least 2 1/2 charges for my phone and it only charges it 2 times, but still thats great considering the size of this battery.  ...  "
