Deal Details

Picked up one of these babies in silver to match with my macbook air and iphone.
Pretty good price in my opinion. Had it in cart for a few days and it dropped $4 today.

Pretty great reviews and looks very solid. Can't wait to test it out.

it's a decent deal and will prob FP.

the problem is this battery only has 0.8A output. most phones nowadays come with 1.0A chargers. this battery will still charge but at a slower rate, provided nothing power-intensive is being used (big screen, GPS, etc.).

i'd have gotten one as if it were < $10 (i'm buying another anker product and the discounts can't be stacked!). i'll just pay $4 more to get a full 1.0A battery from another reputable brand.
Do you have a link?

I got a similar charger for $24. It was 11000 mAh though. Charged my phone over 4 times before it said charge me.

This Anker battery pack is actually a full 1.0A output

The 0.8 is the input charge

It is kind of confusing but if you look at the back specs, it says 1.0 A
If it were 0.8 output otherwise I don't think it can charge an iphone 5 or a galaxy s3

Too bad I missed the 7.99 Rav power deal but I think this deal is the best battery pack for a while and isn't dead yet.

The rav power jumped back to 19.99 and is 400 mAh less than this and is $4 more expensive.

For the cost and power rating, this anker one is a good buy

1A must be what the computer kicks out because it says not charging on the mini but its really just a trickle.

Where there be affordable 2A power banks?

Yeah tablets use a lot more power and need at least 1.5 or 2.

This is the cheapest >2A I can find

Isn't all Anker battery genetic batteries from China? Same genetic batteries on ebay.
I'm using anker slim line 3000mah battery with built in micro usb port and loving it.
But found same battery for cheaper on ebay.

I don't have the Anker but I do have the RavPower mentioned in this thread. With a full charge it was able to charge a 1500mAh phone battery most of the way (93%). I have my doubts that the Anker could fully charge (0-100%) most smart phone batteries more than once, much less twice.

I'm seeing $19.99. I have this. It works well. I have successfully recharged my iPhone 5 with this (going from less than 20% battery to 100% battery). Supposedly this little charger has enough juice to recharge your iPhone twice. I have not tested this yet. This little unit is coming with me on my trip to Japan next month. Will come in handy on the long 10 hour flight.

:Thinks twice: I'm planning on getting an iPad Mini Retina in a week or so. Perhaps I should buy another one of these just for the Mini?
It is good to use, but it seems that the price is high than I bought, Also , the working time of the above is not meet my need .
