I recently received a PowerCore 20100 which I think is amazing since it holds 8000 mAh more than my 2nd Gen Astro3 12000 mAh battery. However, the Anker PowerCore 5000 matches (if not more) this convenience in its size.
I work in a fast paced environment where my cell phone is used constantly and I can’t afford to be without it if it dies and needs to be tethered to a wall charger. Previously I was carrying either my Astro3 or the PowerCore 20100 in my pocket with my phone which is quite funny to watch when I need to run somewhere. Unless you’re one of those people who don’t mind your pocket swinging like it’s stuffed with a pound of sand! That’s where the benefit of the PowerCore 5000 comes in.
This thing is awesome. It weighs about the same as my phone (HTC M8) and is about the size of a small flashlight. I forget it’s in the pocket of my cargo shorts. My wife actually has commented that she’s going to take it because it’s so small, it’ll easily fit in her purse.
What you receive is the PowerCore 5000, a 2 ft micro-usb cable, and a pouch to carry everything in. The pouch is large enough to carry the PowerCore 5000, usb cable, and has decent enough space left over in case other items need to be carried. It comes with an 18 month warranty and lifetime technical support as well. It uses Anker’s PowerIQ which adapts the power output to match the optimum charging rate of device being charged. It does not have QuickCharge technology; however it outputs at up to 2A which allows for a quicker than normal charge over other batteries or adapters that use 1A or 1.5A.
Upon receiving it, I drained the battery and charged it to 100% using a 1.5A charger which took 3 hours 15 minutes. The speed that it will charge is based upon the adapter you use. Anker sells some pretty amazing USB wall chargers that would be a great purchase in addition to their batteries. I plan on purchasing their 3 port QuickCharge 3.0 wall charger at some point in the future. I then used the PowerCore 5000 to charge my HTC M8 from 17% to 100% which took 1 hour 45 minutes. I then charged it from 60% to 100% and then again from 24% to 44% before it was fully drained.
As with my other Anker products, the build quality is top notch. In fact, Anker continues to improve it’s products making subtle improvements that I’ve been able to notice with each product I’ve owned.
Overall, I am very happy with this product mainly from the small size and capacity that balances convenience and functionality over my larger batteries. Don’t get me wrong, they still have their place, but the PowerCore 5000 is a much better option for carrying in your pocket.
The battery has a 2 amp output which will charge most devices at full speed. Charging is limited to 1 amp and takes about 4 hours to fully charge. I would love to see Quickcharge 2.0 on this pack, but I'm sure that would only just raise the price. For the cost, this pack is a no brainer.
I came across this PowerCore 5,000 and the previous PowerCore 3,350, both for pretty much the same price, so I bought both for a comparison in size and power. I was more looking for something to keep comfortably in my pocket for when I need it the most.
The powercore 5,000:
This device is about as thick as a United States 50 cent piece and a bit shorter than a soda can. It holds about 2 charges for my iPhone X and charges it pretty quickly in comparison to a standard wall charger. I think the size of this one is a little big for the convenience of putting it in your pocket, but it would be nice for keeping in my car for that extra charge on the go.
The powercore 3,350:
This charger makes the difference in size with its thickness. It is between the thickness of a nickle and a quarter, but is only half an inch shorter than the powercore 5000. The 3,350 mAh can charge my iPhone X once from completely dead, which is about what I need from something this small. A big note is its 1 amp output, that charges as fast as a standard iPhone wall charger. It fits comfortably in my pocket which is exactly what I’m looking for in this.
What to buy:
The newer PowerCore 5000 is better in just about every way except size, it can charge more, it can charge faster, it even has 3 charge indicators to tell you how much charger is left. For the same price, you really can’t argue with that.
The reason I’d stick with the PowerCore 3350 is just it’s size. You can slip it into your pocket easily and its just all around more convenient.
They both have a quality, sturdy feeling build. The PowerCore 3350 has a more white-ish top which for most people isn’t a big problem.
