Top customer reviews
As background, I've been an Anker customer for years. I cycle generally between an Astro E7 26800mAh and a PowerCore 20100, and I *generally* charge at home but sometimes find myself charging on a train, at a cafe, etc. I keep them in their cases and carry them in my bag, so I'm okay with the bulk that comes with large batteries. I would give both of these batteries—and all of the various wall-warts that I've got to go with them—five stars, and Anker's customer service department six stars if I could.
- The battery itself really does charge faster than its predecessors from my few hours of use. (Because I never charge on the go, I plan on always using both micro-USB chargers.) It charges just fine with only one plugged in, though.
- As always, "PowerIQ"—Anker's name for "USB Charging That Sucks Less"—works really well. That said, that's true with the entire Anker product line, so this isn't anything special.
- This model has 6A output. In almost every scenario, this will mean that you can have two power hungry beasts plugged in at all time at full speed *or* three power hungry beasts at almost-full speed (2A).
- Three beautiful, beautiful USB slots—something nice from my E7 that fell by the wayside for my other PowerCore.
- I know logically that this thing can't weigh more than the E7 and *probably* weighs less than the slightly-more-powerful PowerCore 20100. It's bulky in a weird way, though. It's really dense. That's a good thing by most counts, but its boxy design makes it also more cumbersome to hold or put in a pocket than the E7 or the PowerCore.
- For the bulk, it has lower capacity than its prettier predecessors. It's hard not to feel like that's a step backwards.
- Anker chargers continue not to support charging and using the battery at the same time (passthrough). Want to use your PowerCore II as a way to charge your devices while you charge it? Too bad.
- The micro-USBs are on the side of the device. Maybe this is something I'll just get used to, but it's straight-up less convenient than having it on the face.
- They have the normal, pretty "Anker" logo on one side and "ANKER" in big tacky lettering on the other side. It's literally ugly and feels like overbranding.
- The slightly-padded carrier case that comes with doesn't have openings for the side micro-USB connectors, so you have to at least partially take the device out of the case to charge. I get uneasy when I have a completely unprotected hunk of lithium battery around. Minor gripe, but gripe nonetheless.
- It doesn't support USB-C. Personally, I avoid USB-C like the plague, but other reviewers apparently take issue with this. Your mileage may vary.
It's fine. It's bulky and chunky and dense. It could probably be used as a personal defense item. Don't buy it just because you see "PowerCore II" and assume that there's some major upgrade. THIS IS A SIDEGRADE, NOT AN UPGRADE! If what's most important to you is quick-charging with two micro-USBs above all *AND* you need three ports, this is probably for you. If you want a larger-capacity, more-sleek, higher-capacity option, go with a PowerCore 20100. If you're in the Quick Charge ecosystem and willing to spend, consider going for the Anker PowerCore+ 26800, which can charge and be charged at QuickCharge speeds. And so on.
I'd give the device probably 3.5 stars, but Anker's stellar customer service compels me to round up to a 4. This would be the greatest charger on the market in 2015, but in 2016? I'm not as sure.
I feel like Anker is shooting themselves in the foot by marketing this as the PowerCore II, because as far as I can tell, it's not really worthy.
Happy Holidays, everyone.
EDIT - Five months later!
First, hat-tip to commenter Robert Danson for pointing out that the battery really shouldn't stay in the case during charging anyway. Heat + Batteries = bad, after all. (Read his reply for a better thought out explanation.)
I've been using this battery regularly for the last few months, and it's served me well. I think my section on "The Ugly" proved not to stand up to the test of time. I never see the tacky lettering, I don't use USB-C, and I've gotten used to the plugs being on the side (though I still don't love it).
The important thing is that its capacity has remained solid. It's a good amount of juice. I might be going crazy, but I'm pretty sure it charges slightly slower now than it did when I first bought it. This still makes it faster to charge than any of the other batteries I have, mind you. The blocky design continues to be my #1 grievance; my PowerCore 20100 continues to be my first choice whenever I need to take a large battery with me outside a bag.
The only bad thing I've discovered about the battery since my initial testing is its tendency to shut itself off with the connection of additional devices, requiring you to press the button. This sounds like a mild gripe, but I've woken up to two uncharged devices in the morning a few times (e.g., unplugging to check the time midway through the night, then re-plugging without pressing the on-button).
Summary: It's held up pretty well five months out with regular use, but remember to spam the on-button whenever you're plugging anything in. It's still a side-grade. Value-for-money wise, this is a steal, particularly when it goes on sale... but that can be said about most Anker products!
To try and assist - I've included several pictures. I've compared it to an Anker Astro E5 2nd Gen (16,750 mAh) and an Anker PowerCore Slim 5000mAh.
The device looks a lot smaller in real life than it does on the Amazon website. My brick has more of a teal colored usb ports - not blue as the picture suggests (I like it). The plastic is not glossy (which I prefer since the glossy batteries look terrible after awhile) and very solid - the device doesn't make any noises if I squeeze or try to warp it so it seems pretty solid. Call me whacked but I don't mind the Anker logo on the back or on the side - I don't know why it is getting marks for being ugly - I kind of like it. Like most of my Anker batteries, this thing is going to live in it's mesh case so... I was pleasantly surprised to see 2 Anker cables included (makes sense, I just assumed only one would come). Love the 20,000 mAh case marking!
Why did I get this? I wanted the ability to rapid charge a 20,000 mAh battery without having to use a special rapid charging brick. I already have the 6 port 60 watt Anker USB charger at my desk - so the idea that I just had to use what I already have to charge this fast - I was sold. Also Anker sent out an email offering $10 off the Amazon listing price with a special code ($38 is not bad!).
I've owned the original metal Powercore+ 26,800 that allowed rapid charging and that thing was a BEAST - super heavy, super large so no, I don't think this battery is too big or too heavy. None of my Android or Apple devices have USB C so I'm more than happy that this doesn't have USB C though I could see this being a problem for those who only have USB C. Anker has several USB C batteries so buy those if you need USB C.
Overall I'm very happy for this battery that only cost me $38. The ability to rapid charge without a special brick is why I bought this battery.
Dual input charging, which means it can go from completely dead to a full charge over night easily, which for me is essential.
Three solid USB ports that can quickly charge (note: not Quickcharge) power hungry devices.
Built to last, USB ports are spaced well to fit cables with a larger foot print.
Comes with two micro usb cables
The included cables are very short
Using both inputs to charge causes the device the get hot to the touch. You wouldn't want to cover this device while it is charging. This is only in the part that contains the circuitry, the actual cells themselves don't heat up at all.
The USB indicators do not accurately display the charge percentage (like other products) so when only the last LED is lit the battery will die very soon after that.
With some devices, when the device being charged has reached full capacity, the power bank stops sending power, and won't keep the device topped off. Not a huge deal, just somewhat annoying. Other Anker power banks have this issue as well.
Final notes: My complaints are nit picky and really shouldn't stop anyone from buying this device. If you want a solid device that works great and isn't made cheaply (or at least not too cheaply) then this is the power bank you want.
Sidenote: This power bank uses different cells than previously used models, and from what I understand there is more loss in the power conversion, in other words it isn't as efficient. Not a big deal, this keeps all my devices charged for a full day, but it is something people should be aware of.
