What customers say about "Key Specs"
Anker PowerCore 20100 Ultra High Capacity Power Bank
  • Power capacity to charge your phone throughout the week (6-7 times).
  • PowerIQ feature to automatically route power to the device plugged in.
  • Speed and Capacity- It charged my wife's Samsung 6 pretty quickly and holds 20000 mAh, enough for several charges of her phone and /or tablet.
  • Huge power reserve! No need to carry a charger with you on short trips, just carry this and be done.
  • Does not come with a power adapter.
  • Takes a long time to charge back up. Allow a few hours.
Anker PowerCore 26800 External Battery with Dual Input Port
  • This is a very large charger, but it packs a ton of power. This is perfect for being away from an electrical outlet for multiple days.
  • Anker does make smaller batteries that weigh less, have less power capacity, however are more suited for the portable on the go pocket-able types.
  • The storage capacity on this is excellent, at least that part I have been able to use so far.
  • This is a pretty unique battery: huge capacity, but no Qualcomm Quick Charge output and no USB-C Power delivery. However, you can charge this power bank VERY quickly using two 2A USB connections. That is a godsend.
  • The storage capacity of the portable charger was fantastic, for the time it was needed.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Anker PowerCore 20100 Ultra High Capacity Power Bank
  • It fits in a guy's back pocket. About an inch sticks out, but it still feels secure. Belt is recommended - the battery is heavy enough to pull down sweatpants.
  • It fits well in a water bottle pocket on the side of a backpack.
  • The charger itself is slippery and has no grip without the pouch.
  • Weight and Size- At over 3/4 of a pound (356g /12.56oz) it will be adding a bit to her already hefty purse and it is over 6" long (6.5 x 2.3 x 0.9 in) so not something to carry around in a shirt pocket or a small pocket of a purse or backpack.
  • It's heavy but it's a battery. To be expected but just be aware if you want to pack light while you're out and about this would add some weight.
Anker PowerCore 26800 External Battery with Dual Input Port
  • This is a rather large battery. I didn't read the dimensions when I bought it so I was surprised when it arrived.
  • Battery is not too heavy nor too large. Nice size. (Granted it could be added weight to a purse or pocket if carried all the time)
  • This battery is huge, it weighs in just over 1-pound or 17 ounces. And the dimensions of the battery are, 7-inches long, by 3.1-inches wide, and 0.9 inches deep.
  • Be aware that it is about the size of one of those giant Hershey bars and weights 2 or 3 pounds, so it isn't a purse or pocket charger.
  • Only thing I dont like is the size and weight. Not quite portable unless you have large pockets on your pants.

What customers say about "Features"
Anker PowerCore 20100 Ultra High Capacity Power Bank
  • PowerIQ feature to automatically route power to the device plugged in.
  • Accurate charging status and battery level LEDs.
  • Two USB ports to charge more than just one device.
  • Nice battery life indicator. This is helpful to know about how much longer you have before you need to recharge.
  • Fast charge. I've had 3-4 full charges and it has lasted over 4 days without having to recharge it. Long lasting battery, can charge two products at once and it comes with a nice storage bag.
  • he bag that comes with the battery feels slippery and I could not find a use for it.
  • The only complaint, which is a small one, is the USB cord that comes with this is like a lot of other cords that with any movement.
Anker PowerCore 26800 External Battery with Dual Input Port
  • It seems like every product I buy from them, has been a solid made unit with great features for the money.
  • Only thing I wish is that I could charge it and run it at the same time, but that seems to be a feature lacking on pretty much every battery I've ever used.
  • Very robust in terms of build quality in charging capacity. Charges relatively quickly when using both USB inputs (this is a great feature)
  • One of the best features of this battery is the 3A output if charging 2 or less devices. For me, this turned out to charge my phone in only an hour and a half - quicker than my wall chargers.
  • It has great capacity but the "IQ" feature that I purchased it for doesn't seem to work.
