Better Safe than Sorry - You Never Know
January 24, 2017
I was out of state and spent a lot of time out of the hotel charging areas. I had an iPhone 6, not suppose to be affected by the new IOS upgrade, but that proved to be wrong. It would go from 70% to 20% in seconds, then shut off. With this condition, if you plug it into a power source for as little as 10 seconds, it will return to the 70% level. The charger worked flawlessly, brought my phone back to life on several occasions, and since it is small, i could leave it in my pocket connected to the phone for a complete charge.
On one occasion, before I had this unit, my wife and I were waiting for an Uber Driver around 10p and the phone went dead, so we lost the ride. We had to rely on a regular taxi, at over twice the price. If I had this charger on that occasion, the savings would have paid for the unit.
I'm on an iPhone 7 now, and have had wonderful results with the battery life, however, if I know I'm going to out and about in an extended period of time, you'd better believe I'll have it with me. You Never Know!
The unit is now just shy of 2 years old and is done. I tried boosting the charge on my iPhone Xs, it was at 70%. I got it up to 82%, the Anker dropped to one flashing bar and got really hot. Looks like the end of the line. It was nice while it lasted.
