Product Description

Color: Black

A charging station for the palm or your hand.

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.

A shot to your phone.
When all you need is a boost the Astro Mini's got you covered. It holds enough juice to get you back into action without weighing you down. Add over a full charge to an iPhone, almost a full charge to your S5 or a full charge to most other phones.

Primo construction.
Each Astro Mini is built with dependability in mind. Premium chips, Samsung Grade A cells and a rugged aluminum shell ensure the highest possible performance and safety. Whether you're in the car, at a party or out on the trail, know you've got a battery that won't let you down.

For optimal use.
• To start a charge, first press the power button.
• Compatible with all Apple and Android smartphones, tablets (including the Nexus 7) and other USB-charged devices. The iPod nano, Asus tablets, the LG G2 and some GPS and Bluetooth devices are not supported.
• To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device's original cable, a third-party certified cable (such as MFI) or our included cable.
• 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.

Fits nicely in the purse or small carry on bag.

I use my phone a lot and I was always worried about my phone dying if I was going to be out all day, with this external battery, I no longer have to worry about that.

I bought both the silver one (as a gift) and a pink one for myself and we both LOVE IT.

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!!

I was excited to see such a great little product for such a low price. Yeah, it is not the most glamorous thing in the world, but I use it just like I would any other charger with the exception that I don't have to be near a wall outlet. I just toss this thing in my backpack. Cool stuff.

Update:

So, I had always had the problem of forgetting my cable at home. Also, my girl always wants to charge HER phone (an iPhone 5). I just found an awesome product that solves both of those problems, and doesn't cost too much more than this product.

It is called a Mana Mini: iSmooth Mana Mini 2600mAh Portable Power Bank - Retail Packaging - Black

If you are like me, then I recommend getting this product.

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.

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.

I purchased this item for camping, long airplane flights/layovers, and misc traveling/sightseeing tours. The only item or description that is lacking is the output. The output is 5V 1.0A. That may not matter to many people, but it is very important to me. This means that you can charge or top off pretty much any rechargeable cell phone/smart phone/rechargeable GPS...etc as they require 5V and up to 1.0A to charge them. If you own a tablet such as an iPad, this will NOT allow you to charge or top off your device's battery using this backup battery; as it requires about 2.0-2.1A to effectively charge a battery hungry iPad. That being said, it performs exactly as advertised. I can get almost 2 complete charges from this battery backup to my cell phone/MP3/iPod. It has "saved" me several times already, from having a dead battery. I was able to charge my phone while at concerts, plays, various sporting events, extended flights/layovers...;and most importantly it allows me to charge my GPS, cell phone and MP3/iPod in the back country while camping and backpacking (allows me to listen to music on the trail, use flashlight on phone, or watch movies at night).

I bought this product about six months ago, and was very pleased with it. The quality was great and it came with a travel bag and like 6 adapters for all the popular phone models. I showed my Dad and he wanted one (since he is a truck driver and on the road a lot), so I gave him mine and decided that I'll order myself a new one on my own time.

Well, after ordering from the same seller (and from the same Amazon page which indicates that it is the same item I purchased previously). I am extremely disappointed with the drop in quality. While Anker does offer my color varieties than previously, they exchanged the original travel bag with a small mesh bag, which doesn't feel the same and isn't large enough to hold the various adapters you may need plus the Astro mini itself. They also no longer include all the adapters for the popular phone models, so the only thing you get is a micro USB to charge the device (but you need an A/C wall convertor to charge it within a reasonable time).

I don't have a problem with needing a separate device to charge it via the wall, but removing all the adapters means you have to purchase a convertor for each type of phone which is a hassle (might not be rated to work) and will not fit in the travel bag. With my previous purchase, I've had at least separate occasions where I let my friends use my charger, because I knew that I had an adapter regardless of the phone. That is no longer the case, plus even if you bought the adapters, the travel bag isn't big enough to hold them, which hurts the portability of it.

I'm assuming the adapters aren't included because they assume you will have your original phone charger with you, and most phone chargers these days can detach via USB.
