What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Anker PowerCore+ 13400 with Quick Charge 3.0
  • Very happy with performance, charge capacity, charge times, and appearance of units. I'm hopeful that long term reliability will match initial performance.
  • High capacity is going to be a little heavy. I love my purchase! I bout a short lightning cable with it and they are perfect for my needs.
  • Big capacity with such a small form factor. And definitely get the powercore+ series.
  • Nice product. It is higher capacity than what I need, but it stores power for four months and I won't have to recharge it often.
  • That being said, this reliable and fast portable charger is a huge plus to my daily activities. It charges my cell phone about 5 times very fast. My cell phone does not recognize this charger as a fast charger, but its charging speed is surely comparable.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
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.
Anker PowerCore+ 13400 with Quick Charge 3.0
  • I feel this is a great compromise on size and power. I have 4 small size anker quick charge chargers (10,000MH) and 3 large chargers (20,000Mh and up). The small ones are great for a phone or tablet and fit in the pocket.
  • Quite a bit smaller and lighter than my older Astro 15k unit. Highly recommended!
  • I have a different Anker charger which is the size of a standard home t.v.remote control. Rectangular, which fits perfectly in my hand or back pocket. Would highly recommend any Anker product.
  • Its the perfect size to fit into my pocket while charging my phone.
  • This one still fits in my Jeans pocket, but barely. It really doesn't leave room for anyting else. The last one I had was a little more comfortable.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Anker PowerCore+ 13400 with Quick Charge 3.0
  • The metal apple like casing feels great and lets you know that you have a quality battery pack.
  • It's really solid construction with the aluminum casing.
  • Quick charge feature works great on my S7 edge, just like having it plugged in on the quick charger at home. Nice to have since I use my mobile hotspot quite frequently.
  • The fast charging feature has been amazing. The cord that comes with is great as well. This came right on time and has been very reliable and has not messed up.
  • I like that this Anker charger has a button for turning it on and checking charge status. I have to tap my other Anker battery and it often times doesn't work when you tap it the first time.
