Anker Powercore II Ultra Compact 10000mAh Power IQ 2.0 portable charger 22.65 (Retail: 89.99)

The Anker Powercore II Ultra compact is on sale at Amazon for $22.65.. The slim was on sale yesterday and I missed it but hopefully this is smaller and better?

Anyone can compare? I have the regular powercore 20000mAh charger with 2 ports and have been using it for over a year. Works great but too big... Hoping this is nice small slim square size to put in my pocket and charges my phone even faster so I don't need to keep it plugged in. Don't forget their cables which imo are even better. Mainly starting being a fan from the cable and now chargers. Been using the same PowerLine II wire and already got it replaced easily.

Lol, retail price of $89.99. Look, Ankers good, but they just randomly picked a high number to make it look like they are offering a big ass discount. Lame. Don't believe that BS.

Debating on this 10,000 Powercore or the Speed Series with QC 3.0.

https://www.amazon.com/Upgraded-A...0000+speed


Is Anker's new (and proprietary) IQ 2.0 charging technology 100% safe and reliable? From my understanding, it charges at near the same rate as QC 3.0, however, I have a Note 8 and it has QC 2.0 and I just feel better buying the older Speed batteries since it has an actual charging certification standard and is backwards compatible with QC 3.0.

I'm also weary about Anker proprietary charging tech when a lot of their other products (chargers and such) have quality issues.

I have had no issues whatsoever with my old model 20000mAh power core after abusing it. I got it during the beginning of Pokémon go hype so you can imagine how much I abused it. Never wasn't charging a phone or recharging the pack. still running strong today! The usbs seem to be great too aside from the old school first lighting cable they make,)m use the powerline with the stronger quality wire!

That's the old Power IQ. Anker has their new IQ 2.0 to compete with QC 3.0 (much faster charging). I just feel safer with an actual industry standard (QC) than with one company's proprietary charging tech.

I love these. I don't own this model but got several of the older series ones same size and they are just fantastic. I'm tempted to get a few of these now.

What's wrong with IQ 2.0? I can't use QC, so it doesn't help me.
I have plenty of older Anker battery packs and they're good enough for my usage.

QC3.0 is a Qualcomm proprietary standard and they charge a royalty if you advertise your product with it. PowerIQ charges just as fast, and it can't hurt your phone because the phone chip is the controller of the charging rate. I like watching Emily explain charging. https://youtu.be/mpQIDeu1DCE

Since it's proprietary it's also illegal to copy it. Saying PowerIQ 3.0 is the same as QC3.0 is misleading. I don't know if the end result is the same, but they are not identical technology with a different name.

And thank you for the video. Best tech video ever.
