Top quality battery, purported to use NCR18650BF 18650 cells that represent the current creme of the crop in terms of rechargeable cells today. While it wont outclass a Qualcomm QC2.0/3.0 charger, the circuitry pushes roughly around 2A, a safe (but not the fastest) output that delivers, for most modern phones, a 1% increase in capacity per minute. That's really solid in my book and will perform considerably better than any other budget battery sold in a big-box or chain electronics store.

Input is rated at 1A, which isnt the best, but at this price, and given its Panasonic cell, can you complain?! In short, performance, build and price is outstanding. I hold these in higher regard than my Xiaomi, Belkin and Aukey batteries and it remains my daily driver.

One last thing- my friend in the USA has notified me that there are several generations of this product available. Based on product images and comparing the dimensions between my friend's and my battery, I can say with some confidence that the ones sold in Canada should be the Gen 3 model.

Small and compact, the design is quite pretty. However, on the functional side of things, this mini-power bank has some quirks. It only discharges about 2/3 of it's stated capacity and sometimes pauses (requires to be unplugged/plugged-in again to continue discharge).

Disappointing considering I'm a big fan of their other products. Just bought a much larger powerbank by them and it works like a charm. Perhaps I just got a lemon from the line.
Not worth me sending back since I live in a very remote area. Will probably convert into an artsy paperweight/sculpture or something.

**Update**
A rep from Anker contacted me and we discussed the problem. Apparently a slightly lower yield (discharge) is expected due to the heat/voltage conversion and the charging cable, however it should still put out a solid 2,000mAh. The pausing issue doesn't seem to be a common thing though so it could just be a lemon. They're sending me a larger replacement. I'll update the review again when it arrives. Awesome customer service! - Super happy!

***Update***
Got the replacement which works great. Super happy. Fantastic customer service. Thanks Anker!

Last year we bought a pair of these power packs for Christmas presents. Both units worked at first but by March were completely dead. At that stage the return period had expired and we thought we were out of luck.

Happily I can report that Anker, despite having no obligation to replace the two power packs did just that! Anker's customer service is second to none and we are delighted with how well the new power packs work! Any company can have a glitch in their product but Anker dealt with it with gracious courtesy. The customer is #1. I've returned merchandise before (who hasn't?) to other manufacturers and have often had to deal with snarky customer service reps ("Are you sure you're not just an idiot, sir?"). Not the case with Anker. Immediately, their position was that they had sold a defective product, they were terribly sorry, and what can they do for me.

Once we received the new packs we put them through the paces. The packs charge quickly and have no trouble fully charging a drained iPhone 4, Galaxy S4, or a Galaxy Note 3.

Well done, Anker.

A great product and great customer service.

Great item! Purchased this for my mother's birthday as a practical gift she can keep in her purse, just in case her phone or point-and-shoot camera runs out of battery power.

It is a bit larger than lipstick, and has a little weight to it, but with all the useless stuff I'm sure you'd find in a purse nowadays, the weight should be a non-issue.

I haven't had a chance to see how well it holds a charge, and how quickly it charges her iPhone 5 (or how many times), but she's pretty good at charging her phone every night, so I'm not sure any of that matters. The truth is, my dad will probably get ahold of it and use it for himself. I should've gotten the pink one ;)

Anker is a trusted brand, and I'm sure anyone that opts for this, that has the intention of using this as an emergency external power supply for a single device, will not be disappointed.

Just got this in the mail and was really glad to see that this does indeed have the new IQ technology even though product description doesn't mention it. The carrying pouch that it comes with feels like it's very high quality, and the charging stick feels very well-made too. I don't use lipstick (as a guy) but it does seem a bit 'bigger' than any lipstick I imagined.

Can't really rate the charge or wear-and-tear yet, but it seems to work so far (quite an instant charge connection once I turned it on). I like the fact that even though the 'on/off' button is pressed in as 'on,' when the plug isn't in then it automatically shuts off, while it turns back on right as I plug it back in to my phone (which means no power drain hopefully). No fear at all of accidentally pressing the button while it's in my bag. Looking forward to replacing another external battery I have that's actually much bigger but with the same charge capacity.
