Anker Direct fulfilled by Amazon has Anker Premium Aluminum Powercore+ series on sale $50% Off. Condition is new.

Model A1311 claims "Qualcomm 3.0 with PowerIQ" charging technology
Input: Use your original cable or similar to charge Galaxy 10 Plus and below at its fastest possible speed. Use a converter tip or common A to micro fast cable to refill the bank from the original wall charger.

Advertised specs:
QC Output: 5-6V ⎓ 3A / 6-9V ⎓ 2A / 9-12V ⎓ 1.5A 18W max

Input: Quick Charge 3.0: 5-7V 2.1A,7-9V 1.6A,9-12V 1.25A 15 watts max
claimed recharge time: "a full recharge is completed in only a couple of hours"

Size: 3.7 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches Weight: 236g 8.32oz

Cells: 3 x LG 18650

My take: Never tried it. Price is excellent for premium Powercore+ series but still higher than some QC chargers with comparable or better specs. Aluminum case offers high degree of safety but can scratch and dent. 18 watt QC output charges Samsung at fastest possible speed using original cable without the need for power delivery. Best for 10 Plus and older. Defaults to PowerIQ for non QC phones. Max Input re-fill charge rate of 15 watts is a bit slower than models offering 18 watt refill. 450 five star reviews. 45 critical suggest that a small number of units may require exchange for failing to perform as expected. Good time to buy a bank with many hitting all time lows. Alternatives available with similar or better specs but not with the claimed build quality of PoweCore+ note: supports fast charging on dual charging mode phones like Samsung but has no power delivery for PD only phones.

While I'm not familiar with the power core plus moniker and I understand that this is an 18 watt PD charger with QC 3.0, it's still $2/maH vs $1/maH (aka the "standard" for purchasing the power banks of yesteryear). A little too rich for my blood but I appreciate your detailed list listing the pros of this particular power bank. Thanks OP

I have this power bank. It's a nice quality item. I like that it's aluminum and not that coated "rubber" that gets sticky after a couple years.

I just bought the 20,000 mAh with power delivery for $39.99. Much faster charger

The texture of aluminum is good, but the disadvantage is that it will scratch with loptop

Where does it say it supports PD? As far as I can tell this is QC only

yeah, not sure where you are getting that information but this definitely does not support power delivery, as there are no type c ports on it. The only output is over type A.

Sadly I saw 18 watt and since my only USB-C charger is 18 watt I falsely took that to mean PD. My bad. I think the deal is worse now minus PD for the price-to-maH ratio

Clearly while skimming the deal I played myself by seeing 18 watt and equivocating that to my 18 watt PD charger. My mistake. So then doesn't that make this deal even more lackluster?

Don't waste your money. I bought this on a previous deal. It takes forever to charge and the power drains easily, even when not being used. I have a handful of other cheaper battery chargers that I bought off SD that work twice as good as this one.

It absolutely does support devices which have a USB Type C port. This charges Samsung Galaxy S10 S9 S8 S7 S6 , Note9 models and more.

It charges these at the fastest possible rate using Quick Charge the native fast charge technology built in to many Android and other devices.

It supports devices equipped with QC 3.0 and 2.0 fast charge technology.

This is a current model.

It delivers 18 watts of power from three premium Li-ion cells rated at 10050 mAh. Other 18 watt 10k mAh devices do not have "more power".

Saving $5 or $6 on a much lower build quality is a value judgment you are entitled to make. PowerCore+ series is built from top quality components and employs Anker's most advanced controller including over voltage over current high temperature protection and voltage regulation. Offered at 50% off which is hard to beat and it comes with Anker support which is bar none.

Thank you for sharing. If you will post your charger voltages and the amperage rating for each voltage then I will be happy to compare it against the battery specification to see if this is not the problem. The same charger might fast charge other batteries or devices and not work well here because of a mismatch.

Your battery should not be dissipating charge at a rapid rate when not in use. The battery must deliver its rated power. Anker will replace power banks found not to meet advertised specifications.

An often over-looked explanation for poor performance on battery packs is storing them full or empty. Li-Ion batteries must be stored at 40-50% capacity when not in use to prevent chemical self destruction. Leaving in a car or in the sun will also damage them.

Ad Copy:
Here is what appears under the photo on the Amazon page when you scroll down:
"Super-Speed Recharge"
"Thanks to Quick Charge 3.0 input. Using a compatible charger ensures a full recharge is completed in only a couple of hours.

This contrasts with the four hour recharge claimed in the text.

It comes with a pouch, I never take it out of it. Cables can stick out while charging.
