Product Description

Charging recreated for our multi-device world.

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, two ports intelligently identify 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.

The all-in-one charger.
Three Standard charging ports charge most Android phones and iPhones with iOS 5 or later at full speed as well as many other devices. With five ports overall, you no longer have to choose between your devices or hunt for spare adapters.

Compact and cable-chaos free.
Create the perfect hub for your gear or the family's. About the size of a deck of playing cards, the charger fits nicely on a desk, nightstand, or countertop. Need to grab it and go? The unibody design slides easily into a bag or pocket.

Safety first.
Enjoy premium power but also peace of mind. Industrial-grade materials ensure reliability and durability, while fail-safes and regulators guard against shorts and surges. And for a little added safety, we had the design undergo strict testing to become UL Listed.

For optimal use.
Compatible with ALL phones, tablets and other USB-charged devices. The Asus Transformer and iPod Classic only charge in the Standard charging ports.
To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device's original cable or a third-party certified cable (such as MFI).

First the charger works great and does exactly what it states it does.

If you don't properly understand what each port allows in amperage you might think it's misleading when you plug the wrong device in the wrong port. The ports are labeled as for specific devices which they are not and are only indicative of the amps they put out. The instructions and back of the device clearly label what each port will do for you in terms of amps they will put out. The ports go as such

iPad 2.1 Amps - This is the highest output.
Samsung Tab 1.3 Amps - This is the second highest output.
iPad 2.1 Amps - Again the highest output.
iPhone 1 Amp - Lowest but common for most phones.
Android 1 AMP - Same as iPhone

It is important to understand what your device requires, for instance my note 2 can charge at 2 amps so the iPad port at 2.1 Amps is perfect. Because of how Amps work I do not need to worry about putting too much into my phone. When my phone request 2 Amps that is exactly what it gets, now if I plugged it into say the Android port at 1 Amp that is all I would get. Charging time would also be doubled since I am only giving my phone half of what it can use.

Also with this charger being rated at only 5 Amps max you can not plug into all 5 ports unless you are using devices all at 1 Amp. 2 iPads would put you at 4.2 so anything else would bring it over 5 Amps. If you used 1 iPad or device pulling over 2 Amps you could get 3 to 4 ports depending on Amps required.

2.0 out of 5 stars Android Device users - PAY ATTENTION ! December 30, 2013
Color Name:white|Verified Purchase
I don't normally write a lot of reviews but felt this one was needed to clear up some details for those of us who are heavy android users (I have 5+ devices in my house).

First, as others have said it does exactly what it says it does... it charges the SPECIFIED devices at the maximum listed rates for each port up to 5 amps total.

THE PROBLEM: OTHER devices may be limited on each port to 0.5 amps.

Personally, I think the description from Anker should be clearer. The only indications are in the manual's "FAQ" that comes with it which does say that your device "may charge slower" in a different port and over at Anker's site where they VERY vaguely talk about the difference between Apple/Android ports. See [...]

Port 1)
2.1 amps: iPad (50K ohm b/w data pins)
(An Android device may only get 0.5A "Charging USB" )

Port 2)
1.3 amps: Samsung Tab (0 ohm b/w data pins)
(Dedicated for an Android device which should get 1.3A "Charging AC" )

Port 3)
2.1 amps: iPad (50K ohm b/w data pins)
(An Android device may only get 0.5A "Charging USB" )

Port 4)
1.0 amps: iPhone (50K ohm b/w data pins)
(An Android device may only get 0.5A "Charging USB" )

Port 5)
1.0 amps: Android - (0 ohm b/w data pins)
(Dedicated for an Android device which should get 1.0A "Charging AC" )

See my spreadsheet about different devices in the different states on gDrive at.. [...]

LAYMAN'S EXPLANATION:
- If you plug ANY android device into a charger/port designed for an "Apple" product, that port may only charge the android device at a measly 0.5 amps (500ma) "USB Charging" vs. a charger/port designed for an "Android" product at max charge rate for the port/device (ie 1.

I can confirm that the five port Anker 25W 5V / 5A(Max) Model E150 USB adapter can simultaneously charge two tablets (iPad 3 and Nexus 7) and three smartphones. That feat suggests that 25W output may be close. I could not get two tablets and two smartphones to charge on a competitor's 20W 4-banger device. I'll take the Anker over the other guy's any day.

The device's 5 ports are really useful at airports and cafes where people would otherwise battle over wall socket rights. If you're a frequent traveler, you know what I mean. AC input is 100-240v 50-60Hz enabling worldwide electrical compatibility. The power cord is around 3 foot and uses a common appliance 2 wire connector to mate with the device. You can probably find a replacement cord that's longer or has a different plug for international use. To use worldwide, you'll need either a physical adapter or a different power cord. An EU version of the device is sold on amazon.de.

Testing note: I took some missteps in early testing. I initially used a Triplite multi-plug adapter to plug in the Anker. The fuse kept blowing. I assumed the Anker was doing so but it was actually the multi-plug adapter. Next I noticed the iPad would charge for seconds and then stop. Turns out the cheap iPhone USB cable I was using doesn't connect well in an Anker port but does connect ok with the Apple charger. Likely the cheap iPad 3 cable is out of spec, probably not the Anker(?). All other USB cables worked fine with the Anker. The lesson is it's easy to misjudge fault even with such a seemingly simple device.

Product works as promised as a charger, however emits a constant high-pitched electrical whining/buzzing noise regardless of whether devices are plugged in and charging or if the charger is empty.

Not being able to leave the charger plugged in due to the noise is a huge hassle and not worth it. Waiting to hear back from Anker customer service to see if I can get a replacement sent.

*EDIT\UPDATE*
Anker has great customer service and seemed to fix the issue in their newer revision of the product.
