What customers say about "Key Specs"
Anker PowerCore 10000 Ultra-Compact Power Bank
  • This actually helps your phone battery last way longer because it automatically stops charging your device when the device is fully charged unlike a wall outlet that continuously charges.
  • Lots of battery for a very reasonable cost.
  • I get about 3 full charges before the PowerCore needs to be plugged back into the wall; more than enough time to go on a very long walk.
  • The capacity is enough to recharge my phone multiple times if needed, so I can't imagine going with one larger still.
  • Takes a few hours to fully charge the portable.
  • Will not charge an ear bud or other items that require a lower current.
  • Charge doesn't last long. E.g: Charges to 100%, take phone off of charger, phone goes to 50% in 6 minutes of actively using my phone (facebook, instagram, listening to music, safari with 100% brightness.)
Anker PowerCore 13000 2-Port Ultra-Portable Phone Charger Power Bank
  • This thing has lasted me much longer than 4 charges of a phone! I've even gotten two go pro charges off of the same charge! This truly is a life saver for me.
  • Capacity. This battery pack has a capacity of 10,400 mah, nearly enough to fully charge my HTC One M9 four times! And would give most tablets at least a full charge, maybe even two for some smaller tablets.
  • No buttons to push to turn it on - it charges as soon as you plug in your phone/tablet.
  • Can charge my Samsung S5 3-4 times and still have a little juice in the tank.
  • Long charge up time on device itself (understandable as it has a large capacity).
  • Needs a 2.4 amp charger to charge quickly which is not included.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Anker PowerCore 10000 Ultra-Compact Power Bank
  • Light weight (7 ounces or less than a decent solar charger for backpacking).
  • So small, can literally fit anywhere.
  • Lightweight, Small Size, and High Capacity. The travel pouch is particularly useful.
  • The build quality of both the battery housing and cable are exceptional.
  • Has a good weight that doesn't make it feel cheap or too heavy for it's size.
Anker PowerCore 13000 2-Port Ultra-Portable Phone Charger Power Bank
  • Great small form factor with a huge capacity.
  • Very premium feel with robust and durable build.
  • Feels like it is of quality build! I'm a huge fan of things that feel like they were built with quality in mind, and these battery pack fits the bill!
  • Slim profile, fairly light weight, curved with a nice exterior finish, allowing for easy storage in my pants pockets.
  • Sturdy build quality from a reputable brand with a good warranty.

What customers say about "Features"
Anker PowerCore 10000 Ultra-Compact Power Bank
  • Indicator lights will tell you the amount of charge remaining.
  • Power level LEDs do a good job indicating how full/empty it is.
  • The battery pack itself comes with the battery pack, micro USB cable, and a mesh drawstring pouch. The pouch is large enough hold the battery pack with a lightning and micro USB cable.
  • Came with a cable and a mesh bag. Great packaging, easy to open, well thought out.
  • The unit came well packaged and contains a small carry case with a USBMicro-USB cable for charging - very nice touch on both and makes it a complete package.
  • Didn't come with a wall AC adapter, and I don't have many spares lying around.
Anker PowerCore 13000 2-Port Ultra-Portable Phone Charger Power Bank
  • Charges multiple devices at max speed with its iQ feature.
  • Internal surge protector to ensure that your devices are safe.
  • Comes with a nice small carrying case that I keep it and a multi adapter charging cable from vaster in! Perfect compactness and portability.
  • This power pack has two 2.1amp usb ports, providing enough juice to charge the latest smartphones, and can even charge tablets without a problem!
  • Indicator shows how much battery is remaining, and how much it has charged while you're charging the battery from the wall.
  • Its charging cord is really abysmal. It failed within the first couple of weeks of usage.
  • No built-in flashlight - Funny how this added feature is almost expected on most battery packs.
