This is a very good product, holds a lot of charge and I'm giving 4 stars because it has a few minor, very minor annoyances.

Pros
- Small. (The diameter is about the same of a nickel and the length is about 2 AA batteries stacked on top of each other. See my images)
- Comes with a nice little bag that can hold the battery as well as a cable. (Note that it comes with a USB > Micro USB cable to charge the battery but you need to use your USB > X cable where X is the type of connector your phone or electronic device uses.
- Different colors. If you have a silver iPhone for example, you can get the silver battery. Same thing with the gold phone.
- Holds a decent amount of juice for its size. I had my iPhone 6 with 0 battery. I was able to charge it from 0 to 100% and the battery still had juice. I'll do more testing and update my review.

Cons
- The button to turn it on is hard to press, especially if you have your USB cable connected. It has its advantage because if you put it in a bag it won't accidentally turn on.. But it could be a little easier to press. So basically you need to turn the battery on and then plug the cable.
- There is no indicator of how much juice you have left. The competitor (Jackery® Mini Premium) has 4 lights to show the amount of battery left, but on the other hand it's square so it's harder to carry in your pocket and that's the reason I got the Anker®.
- It's a little heavier than you would expect. Maybe because it's small. But this is not a major issue.

I got this product for my mom since she replaced her old Nokia with an iPhone 4s.
Of course battery life differs drastically between those models. As a result the phone would run out of juice most of the time.
Pros:
-Compact in size. (9cms length 2.2cms width)
-Sturdy aluminum body. (Always a good thing inside a purse)
-Bright silver color. (Easier to locate in a purse)
-Charges in less than 2 hours using a USB wall charger.
-Fully charged the phone twice on a single charge with juice left.
-Handy accessories pouch and cable included. ( mini & micro USB + iPhone plug)
-Auto cut off feature if not in use.

Cons:
-None so far.

Now we no longer worry about my mom's phone running out of charge in case of emergencies.
Highly recommended!!

This is a very good product and serves a vital need to those who need to charge their device when away from a plug. The only thing that I initially missed in the directions was that you must press the button next to the USB slots before it will start charging.

The Anker Astro Mini is a nice small back-up power supply to keep your power-hungry iPhone running. I ran a test with my iPhone 5 to see just how much juice you could expect.

I drained my iPhone 5 down to 10%, then used the Astro mini to recharge it to 100%. The Astro still had some charge, so I drained my iPhone 5 down to 10% again, then used the Astro mini to recharge. This time I only got back to 40% charged before the Astro was done.
The way I look at it, you can get ~1.2 full iPhone 5 charges from one Astro charge. Not bad and just what I needed to keep running thru a long day.

I recharged the Astro from my computer USB port. It took ~ 6 hours to fully recharge (charging light turned off). It might charge a little faster with a plug-in charger, but you should plan on 6 hours (or overnight) to fully recharge.
The instructions are simple and the carrying bag is fine. There are a number of adapters for included charging cord. Unfortunately, the iPhone 5 “lightning” connector is not one of them. If the lightning connector was included, it would be a 5 star.

This charger is good for charging while travelling or in an emergency. I got one full charge out of it on my S3 while I was travelling. Make sure to charge it up fully before you travel and your phone also.The size was the selling point for me. I would have gotten the 6000mAh and I still might but I really like this one for the portability. I also realized that it is very sturdy. It feel from me by mistake onto a concrete surface and rolled about a meter down hill. Besides a few scratches it worked fine afterwards. I was surprised.

I bought a couple of these a while ago and now I'm picking up a couple more as gifts. Anyone who has a smartphone should have one.

I was thinking of ideas to protect these from water and debris in my pocket or backpack. The simplest idea I came up with was to pickup some rubber chair tips at the hardware. Size 7/8 to 1 inch. They fit perfectly and do a good job of protecting them. Anker hit a home run with this product. Five stars.

We bought 4 of these chargers for Christmas gifts. Three of the four were counterfeit products! One of them exploded in our daughter's room! Our concerns have been VERY well received by the Anker Service Team. They a first class, company focused on a quality product and exceptional customer service. Future products, bought by us, will be purchased directly from them.

I ordered my first Anker as I was going to a music festival, and knew that I would need it. Unfortunately, it didn't work. It didn't take any charge. The green light would come on indicating that it was fully charged, but when I plugged in my phone, it did not last longer than 30 seconds. I received a follow-up e-mail from Anker directly asking me about my purchase. I told them the issue that I had, and the circumstance that it had put me in. They had me test a few things, and determined that it was a faulty Astro. They immediately sent me a new one, and it works brilliantly. I love it! It charges your device in no time, and is very portable. I would just suggest making sure that your device works before heading out of town, or an event where it is needed. The Anker customer service was exceptional!!!

Love it! Initial charge time for my Anker Mini was a few hours. Once charged it worked exactly as described. I was concerned that it would be cumbersome to carry, but it is surprisingly light and a convenient size, and durably made. Included pouch is nifty and a major plus. In addition to the Anker Mini, I purchased the Innovative Digital 5" lightning cable to charge my iPhone 5. The mini lightning cable works great AND fits in Anker pouch! See Innovative Digital USB to Lightning compatible Cable (5 inch). I looked at other round mini chargers, but they did not have on/off switch. I don't yet know how long it will retain its charge, may update this review later. So far, very happy with this purchase. Fast delivery.

I bought it anyway and I've used it twice already. There's been two nights when I've forgotten to plug the charger into my Nexus 4 and I had class at 8AM the next morning. My phone was almost dead, but all I had to do was bring the Astro Mini with me. Carrying them both around while the phone is charging is easy. I put the charger in my back pocket and phone in the front pocket, while still connected. The spiraled cord is long enough to allow you to use the phone while the charger remains in the back pocket. It gives my phone a full charge in about 2 hours.
