You really get your money's worth for this product.

Battery works great, charges just as I would expect it to, and seems to hold a charge just fine after weeks of not being used.

It's great because I can charge my phone anytime I need to without having to find an electrical outlet.

I've done an extensive research on this product before buying it. I've also read many feedbacks here.

I purchased this item along with Anker's 1700 mAh battery for Droid Incredible.
Now, if you do simple math and consider this product to fully supply 5600 mAh to your battery you will see that I'm suppose to be able to fully charge my phone 3 times with this charger; 1700+1700+1700=5100 and the charger is still suppose to have 500 mAh left. That's after I fully charge the charger using the AC power adapter.
However, when my phone has a few percents of battery left and I connect this charger to it, it takes the charger 2 and at times 3 (out of 4) blue lights to charge up my phone. Be advised that before I do so I fully charge the charger using the power adapter supplied and while it's charging my phone I'm NOT using my phone.
When my phone discharges almost completely and it's time to charge it up again, the charger wouldn't provide the full charge because it has only 1-2 blue lights left after the previous charge. It doesn't make sense. How come simple math doesn't apply here? The charger can't even provide 2 full charging cycles. However, it take about 5-6 hours to fully charge it up. I don't understand this.
Besides, the charger came with no instructions. I mean, you don't have to have a PhD to figure out how it works, but at least some hints on how this device is suppose to work properly would've been appreciated.

By the time of writing this I have fully discharged the charger twice thinking that maybe it should take a few full (dis)charging cycles in order for it to perform at its advertised (5600mAh) level just like with many phone batteries but again there were no instructions with it so I don't know. Puzzled and disappointed.

I live on my Droid X2 phone. Charge it overnight and keep it on charger in the car and, when I remember, around the house (I am retired, so no workplace to charge it at).

Constant use for phone, text, email and internet - - the Droid doesn't last long when not on the charger despite power saving apps. So, I have taken to carrying a rechargeable battery pack.

My first one was a Radio Shack Enercell. It was a weak contender. Fully charged, it could only raise the phone battery 20% (e.g., 50% to 70%). I lived with it, until it died after 8 months (I will have to take that up with Radio Shack, later).

Today, I received this unit - - ordered after I read the positive reviews.
It came well charged, three out of four bars. I charged it for three hours, until all four bars lit solid and plugged it into my Droid which was at 40%. An hour or so later, the Droid was fully charged and, yet, the Anker still showed its four bars. Of course, I knew that it must have used some power to resuscitate the Droid.

However, I immediately plugged it in to my wife's LG Cosmo which was down to its three out of four bars and was due for a charging. To make this second event even more challenging, I turned on the flashlight function while the phone was charging.
Then, I began writing this review.

While the phone continues to charge, let me tell you a bit about the included cables and adapters. There are two cables, a 6 inch and a 24 inch (measurements are nominal) and seven adapters. The adapters include the male micro that is needed to charge the Anker and, coincidently, the Droid X2. The other adapters would be useful in charging a plethora of devices.

I bought this to take on a camping trip. It arrived 2 days before I left. I fully charged it and then charged all my phones and bluetooth headsets with it to at least fully cycle the battery once to increase its charge capacity. It worked flawlessly I was pretty amazed at how much charge it could hold. I fully charged it and packed it in my bag. The next day I used my phone until battery was around 10% late at night at the camp site. I took out the Astro fully charged. I connected the charger first and then pressed the button. It started to charge like it should. My phone must have gone to like 35% battery and then the charger just stopped working. Like if it had been bricked. No response. No lights would come on, nothing. I pressed the button for 5 seconds, which is the way to turn it off, and nothing. The only way I got it to work was to connect it to a friend's laptop for 2 seconds. And BAM! it sprung back to life! all lights turned on again showing that it was still almost full!.... and then after charging my phone again for a little while.. It stopped working AGAIN! This thing just bricks itself spontaneously. Rendered useless unless you have some other way of charging it at least for a second to bring it back to life.. so DON'T depend on this!!!

I might have a deffective unit... but still.. BUYER BEWARE before buying. It's one of those things that works sometimes and then doesn't work other times. After returning home I tried to reproduce the error.. I cannot do it. I pressed the button madly, connected it and disconnected it.. say, the kind of abuse it wouldl receive on a bumpy ride.. and nothing. Then, out of the blue.. It stops working.. as it is just laying on my desk! Therefore It can't be anything I did to it. It just STOPS WORKING and becomes a brick when it wants to.
