EDIT 11/08/16: I was contacted by their customer service team the following day after writing this review. Their team was very pleasant to deal with and quick with their responses. Within a day or two, they've already sent out a replacement for the faulty PowerCore 20100 I purchased a couple of months ago! If all goes well, I'll be updating this review again! Great customer service from Anker!
EDiT 2/16/17: Anker's customer service is second to none! The replacement works as it should, but the wire would not charge the PowerCore. After contacting their customer service team again, they were happy to replace the faulty wire sent with the replacement PowerCore. Great company that cares about their customers. I just wish products nowadays lasted longer, but regardless, I'll be buying their products again.
Everyday, for 5 days in a row, I would allow my phone to drain as much as possible as you can see below....then the next morning I would charge my phone using only the Anker Powerbank until it was fully charged.
Here are the results!
*Charge #1 = 15% to 100% power in 1 hour 35 mins. (4 solid lights)
*Charge #2 = 20% to 100% power in 1 hour 30 mins. (3 solid lights)
*Charge #3 = 08% to 100% power in 1 hour 45 mins. (2 solid lights)
*Charge #4 = 03% to 100% power in 1 hour 50 mins. (1 solid light)
*Charge #5 = 20% to 100% power in 1 hour 25 mins. (1 Blinking light)
The next morning (on day 6), I tried recharging the phone again while the 1 remaining light on the Anker Power bank was still blinking .....
It basically went from 14% to 21% power before the Power bank ended up running completely dry.
So all in all I was able to get "5 Full Charges" from this one Power Bank with my Samsung Galaxy S7.
Hope this helps anyone who is undecided on pulling the trigger!
I bought this unit in March of 2017. I have not used it too may times. But, occasionally I have charged Iphone, Ipad, and some portable speakers. It would basically charge all of them with a single charge to the PowerCore. Very nice!
In May of 2018, I noted that when charging, the unit would get to the point where the last LED was blinking, but the lights would never turn off. Other than this, the ability to charge other devices seemed to be unchanged. However, this charging behavior made me wonder whether this was an indication of a potential failure beginning. Therefore I contacted Anker since I was still in their 18 month warranty period (just).
I have to say that working with them has been nothing but a pleasure! They responded to me the same day via email. Asked for a few other troubleshooting steps, and then sent me a new one after the extra steps did not resolve the issue. And......they let me keep the initial PowerCore which of course still works (for the time being)! Amazing.
I am extremely pleased with this company and will continue to do business with them. Highly recommended.
Update: Following this review I was contacted by Anker and they sent out two replacement batteries. The batteries worked well for 10 months then wouldn’t charge and we did in fact recharge with an Anker multi charging port (works great no problems) and Anker cable. Maybe these backup batteries only last a bit less than a year or so, though that’s not what I expect as a consumer. Otherwise, Anker puts sells solid speakers we own, among other Anker products. This is why I’m so disappointing about these backup chargers.

*** UPDATE ***
Anker did send me a replacement free of charge been using it for a week and have had no issues and works even better than the first one I had right out of the box. If I do not update this again then the product has lasted and does the job great. If this one also goes bad after a couple of months I will update. ~ week 2
It arrived quickly and the product box looked really nice. I opened it up and noticed that the portable charger was a bit bigger than what I anticipated. Inside the box was the portable charger, a usb cable, a carrying case for the portable charger, the warranty info and the manual. I immediately noticed the high quality of the charger. It feels solid in your hands and a bit heavier than I was expecting as well. There are some portable chargers that have extra stuff like a flashlight but this charger just sticks to the basic. There are two USB Ports where you can plug in your usb cable and then connect that to your device. Also, there is one micro usb port for charging the portable charger itself. Lastly, there are 4 LEDs on one side of the charger. These 4 LEDs represent how much juice is left in the portable charger. 4 LEDs means its at 100%. 3 LEDs mean 75% and so on. There is a button on the side of the charger as well. This button lights up the LEDs for you to know how much capacity is left. Anker uses their own technology to speed up the charging which is awesome. I did notice the devices I plugged in took The fact that you can charge two devices at the same time is pretty convenient as well. I have done this a few times and it works quite well.
There are a few reasons I took a star off. One of them is that charging the actual portable charger to its full capacity takes around 8 hours which is quite long. I understand the capacity is quite big but a power adapter for the charger itself could have been included. The other two reasons are weight and size. The weight and size are a little bit annoying to me as when I think of portable chargers I think of something you can put in your pocket and charge your phone at the same time. With the weight and size of this it is a bit difficult to do something specific like that. This is not a huge issue but it is just something I thought could be worth mentioning. I am aware now that anker and other companies offer smaller sized power banks. Overall, I am pretty happy with this purchase. I bought this last year and still can't notice any decrease in quality.
My first Anker 20100 Portable Charger died after 1 year - granted, I use it extremely often as I am a Pokemon Go player, so I was happy with the product. At that time, I did not realize there was a warranty, so I purchased a second one (same model, different colour) as a replacement. This Anker 20100 only lasted a few months before it died. Both chargers had the same symptoms: The charger is charged (2-4 lights on), when I plug it in it charges the phone for only a few seconds and then the charger turns off. I contacted Anker support and they were amazing, with few questions asked they sent two replacements within days. I was happily an Anker customer and ready to give a 5 star review because they stand by their products and I was hoping all would be well with the replacements. On day 1, one of the replacements had the exact same issue so it is unusable. I reached out this morning to see if there is a different product I can get instead because 3 portable chargers with the same problem is definitely a pattern of a larger issue. Overall: I would suggest purchasing an Anker product because of their great customer service, but I would not recommend this particular portable charger because I had 3 stop working within a year and a half.
Thanks to Anker, their exceptionally excellent customer service, and their client appreciation...I am a very happy customer. Great products, excellent quality, and excellent service. I highly recommend any Anker product, as Anker does stand behind their products and quality.
It is heavy but I don't mind it! I got used to it for my frequent travels. I will be looking in to the newer, smaller portable battery though!
