" ...  I've ordered many portable chargers and this rates right at the top. ... Just a combination of fast charging, small size and enough power to charge a couple of devices.  ...  "
comment
" ...  You need one cord to recharge the device ... another to charge your phone from the device. ... Customer service recommended that I use the cord I use to charge my phone. ... Is it just me: I thought the purpose of a portable charger was so I didn't have to carry around my phone charger and cord.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Very fast charging using the 3rd gen iPad Pro USBC 18 watt charger. ... Gives me multiple charges on my iPhone X and about an extra 50% on my 3rd gen12.9 iPad Pro. ... Can also charge both devices at the same time.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This not only provides Power Delivery, but it will also charge with Power Delivery making a quick top-off very easy to do. ... I should be getting 2.9 charges from a full battery (10,000 / 3,430), but I fell like I get more like 2 at most.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have nothing but positive things to say about Anker as a company, and this portable charger is the best I've ever had. ... It charges the new Samsung Galaxy s10+ at an extremely fast rate. ... You can't go wrong with this charger or this company.  ...  "

" ...  Only difference between those generations are the charging cable you’ll need. ... If you have the older iPad Pros, you’ll need to buy Apple’s Lightning to USB-C cable (or Anker’s, as they will have their own by the end of February, I believe). ... For iPhones, you will need the USB-C to lightning cable that I mentioned earlier for the iPad Pro 1st and 2nd generation.  ...  "
