Product Description

Color Name: Black

The all-new 2nd generation Anker® Astro3 recasts the possibilities of mobile power.

PowerIQ™: Compatibility maximized.
Not all charging ports are created equal. Standard ports only communicate effectively with particular devices, like Apple OR Android, often limiting their recharge rate. But with PowerIQ™ technology, each port intelligently identifies your device to speak its unique charging language. So plug in any brand or model and enjoy compatibility that doesn't limit your charging speed.

Packed with power.
We figure, the more power, the better. Packed with 12000mAh of juice, and featuring an energy efficiency rate 10% above previous generation Astros and many current standard alternatives, the new Astro3 charges the iPhone six times and large-capacity phones like the Galaxy S4 almost four times.

Double take.
Chic and minimalistic, the new Astro3 may feel reserved at first. But, a friendly "shake" reveals its warm inner light to display the power level or begin your charge. Generous, cool, and delightfully intuitive, the new Astro3 is perfect for your next adventure, or just the daily grind.

For optimal use.
• Please use the included cable(s), your device's original cable or a third-party certified one (such as MFi).
• Compatible with all Apple and Android smartphones, tablets (including the Nexus 7) and other USB-charged devices. The iPod nano, iPod Classic, HP TouchPad, LG G2, Asus tablets and some GPS and Bluetooth devices are not supported.
• The included Micro USB cable is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 3 and other Micro USB 3.0 devices. To connect, insert the cable's Micro USB tip into the larger of the two connection ports on your device.

The battery is compact and a bit heavy. It does the job of charging my phone on the go for the 3 hours i travel.
The build is sturdy and feels like premium materials. Although the matte finish is gorgeous looking, its a fingerprint magnet! Thankfully they include an perforated travel pouch that keeps the Anker safe and fingerprint free. And yes you can see the illuminated LED dial through the pouch quite clearly.
The "SMART" USB feature charges up my phone super fast! with (5V / 2.4A max) of charging power
Ankers LED light ring is a genius touch. The indicators for "battery percentage" and "charging" are simple and straightforward which can easily be activated by a little shake... yes I said "shake". there are no physical buttons on this device but a simple motion sensor that will activate the LED and the implied function.
Overall i'm quite happy with the purchase and the product. its sleek, modern and will power all the USB devices.

This was my first Anker product and I was impressed by the build quality. I had never heard of them so took a chance and I'm glad I did.

It has lots of capacity for charging phones and tablets. I used it to go cross country with my Galaxy S3 and Nexus 7. It charged both as fast as a wall adapter would and had no problem keeping both charged for my airport layovers and delays. No more hunting around in the airport for a wall socket.

I have the Anker Astro Pro 2 and I wanted something smaller that my kids can use to charge their ipods. The Asro Pro 2 has only one USB port. Although this has 12,000mAh in comparison to the Astro Pro2 20,000mAh, it's significantly smaller and lighter. I ended up using this more often for my own use because of it's size and because I can charge my iphone and ipad at the same time. It has three smart USB ports (the Black one has only one smart USB and two universal USB ports, not sure why they made it that way). The only downside in comparison to the Astro Pro 2, it takes longer to charge, but not a big issue, because overnight charging is what I do anyway. Overall very good product and highly recommended. I might have to buy another one now for the kids.

Received the product and it has charged up my iPad, iPod, Android phone. And it has a lot of power left over for more charging.
Good product for people on the go.

Thanks Sunni for the follow-up emails about the Anker product and warranty.

Bought this for a few nights of tent camping. I've tested it out with iPod touch, iPad and iPhone. Charges the touch about 10 times or iPad twice or iphone maybe 3 times I'd estimate. It takes a while to recharge (overnight at least) but it's fantastic. Does what you need it to do well. As a bonus, it uses a micro USB charger for charging itself...which many other electronics I have use anyway. I might buy one more...we have a lot of devices in this family.

The design of this thing is awesome. A very simple and clean look. It's pretty bulky, so you're going to want to keep in in a large pocket (think cargo shorts, large coat) or in a bag (messenger bag, purse, etc.). If you want something smaller, you need to get one with less capacity (less mAh).

I've used it a couple times since I got it 3 weeks ago and I was very happy to have it around. My phone's battery is on its way out, so this helps when I'm away from a plug for too long, but it should also come in handy when travelling. Essentially, it works exactly as advertised. Just remember that there is some energy loss when going from the power bank to your device, so the 12,000 mAh ends up being about 10,000 mAh, which is still a ton.

CONS: It only comes with a cable (no wall socket power adapter), but you probably already have one with your phone/tablet. It comes with a VERY tight fitting protective cloth case and it is somewhat difficult to use, however you can just leave it in the cloth case permanently to protect it and you can still see the power LED through the cloth case. Finally, the USB sockets/cable fit together very tightly as well and it takes a little force to plug/unplug, but this may also be a good thing since a tight connection would hold up better if it were bouncing round in a bag. All in all, the cons really aren't that bad.

Purchased this based on Amazon reviews and price. This is the first portable battery that I've used, so I don't have much to compare to. It does take a while to fully charge the unit, however, it appears to be the case with most brands of portable chargers, so that is not necessarily a negative for Anker. The unit functions well at recharging my iphone5, and it does so rather quickly. It can recharge the iphone5 maybe 3-4 times before requiring recharging.

Only recently however, I tried charging my ipad (ipad3), and while it does indicate that it is charging, it actually doesn't seem to be providing enough power. Not only was it not increasing battery % on the ipad, it was actually going down, until the it powered off!
From reading the specs and reviews, I was under the impression that this device should power the ipad adequately. However, I am dissapointed to learn it apparently does not.

So pretty good for iphone charging, disappointed by ipad charging, or lack thereof.
If I would have known before hand, I may have purchased a different brand unit.

ADDENDUM: The unit I had appeared discolored after a few charges. Being a battery, I wasn't so comfortable with the case being discolored (almost looking burnt). I contacted the company via email, and promptly got a replacement unit. So good customer service. Haven't yet tried the new unit. I would recommend emailing the company vs. calling (support by phone was less helpful).
