In comes the Anker PowerCore Slim 5000. Not only does it meet my need for extra boost in power but is also a pleasure to carry around. Sure, I could carry my Anker 20100 with me but I like able to slip it in my pocket without the added weight. Therefore, I tend to grab the myCharge or MarWare battery when I head out the door with iPhone & GoPro. I've found that even with the 3000mAh capacity of the myCharge, my GoPro with LCD bacpac needs more thirst quenching power. I like to carry my GoPro Hero4 Black with LCD BacPac vs having to carry extra GoPro batteries. Therefore, it's more convenient to carry an extra battery pack in case I also need to charge my iPhone.
The Anker PowerCore Slim is exactly what I wanted in a battery pack. It's slim, super lightweight, and easy to carry. I can just put it in the included microfiber pouch with the microUSB charger, mini USB charging cable for my GoPro, my lightning adapter and I'm ready to go. I love that the battery weighs next to nothing. And the fact that you can set your iPhone on top of it while it's charging is a nice feature. Heck, you could even slip both the battery pack and iPhone into your back pocket without much bulk.
When my iPhone 6s was plugged into the Slim 5000, the phone automatically started charging. It continues to charge even after the iPhone was fully charged. I guess you could say that it tops it off. I can understand why this could be a nice feature but when I am charging my iPhone, I was to just charge it to 100%, unplug from power source and be done. The fact that the Slim 5000 features the IQ and VoltageBoost is nice. I like being able to plug my device in, know it's charging at it's optimal level and safely doing it.
I ran a couple of tests on the Slim 5000. First, I fully charged the battery pack to 100%.... until LED indicators shut off by itself. Meanwhile, I ran my iPhone 6s' battery down to 4%. I found that it took approximately an hour to get my iPhone battery to 100%. Then I plugged the Slim 5000 into my iPad Mini 2 to drain it's battery. After the battery on the Slim 5000 was fully drained, I charged it to 100% again. It took a little over 3 hours to reach 100%.
*** slim - mere 5" x 2.5" x. 4"
*** super lightweight - 4.2oz!
*** nice matte finish grip
*** features the IQ & VoltageBoost technology - which helps the battery determine how much power is needed to optimally charge your device and protect it
*** includes microfiber pouch & microUSB charging cable ..... which can also be used to charge your microUSB devices or the battery pack
*** has battery level indicator LED lights
*** won the RedDot Award for 2016
*** when Slim 5000 is fully charged, LED light indicators goes out
*** 3 LED battery level indicator - I would rather have 4 for (25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%) instead of the (33%, 66%, and 100%)
*** will continue to charge while plugged into your device - would love an auto shutoff when device is fully charged so I could save the rest of the power for later
Overall, I love this Slim 5000. It's perfect to throw in your back pocket, purse, backpack, etc for those times that you need a little more power for your gadgets. Just keep in mind that it isn't going to charge your iPad to full power nor charge your iPhone dozens of times. It is only 5000mAh. But it will charge your iPhone at least 1.5 times, enough until you get home. Being able to have 5000mAh in your pocket, backpack, etc. is great. I think it's a happy medium.... not too skimpy on power nor huge in weight due to extreme power (Marware & myCharge vs Anker 20100). I really love the design, simple but yet powerful. I kind of wondered why Anker didn't make the battery pack longer to match the size of the iPhone 6s but then again, maybe it's because they didn't want to cover the camera. In case you are charging your iPhone while you are using it. Good thinking Anker ;) . Even though I received this unit for review. I wouldn't hesitate on purchasing one neither. For $17.99 at the time of this review, it's a steal. I've seen these so called "lipstick" battery with a mere 2000mAh going for $20 in stores! So if you're looking for a 5000mAh battery pack, better snag one right now! I love Anker products. They have always been extremely reliable. I didn't care much for the 3 LED light indicators showing the battery levels to be 33%, 66%, and 100%. It would have been nice if Anker included a short Lightning cable. But other then that, it is another great product by Anker.
To Anker, if you were to make a USB type-C variant, using USB C instead of micro-B, I would totally buy it on the spot!
