Thread Details

The Anker Astro3 10000mAh external battery pack [amazon.com] is currently available for $39.99 with Free Super Saver shipping on Amazon from seller AnkerDirect.

Note that this is the multi-voltage Astro3 not the Astro3e. The difference is that the Astro3 has a 9/12 V output in addition to the regular USB outputs on the Astro3e. This allows it to charge a wider variety of devices.

According to camelcamelcamel, this is the lowest price it has ever been by $10.

That looks nice. I wonder how long it takes to charge.

I have the 3E. Works great so far.

Not sure how useful the extra voltages are, but good price for just the 5V USB charging.

If you do not need the different voltages, I recommend the 3e.

The biggest difference to me was that the 3e charges with a normal USB cable as opposed to the 3, which requires a barrel DC adapter. Just one more cable to carry around/lose.

Agree. I have the 3, but rarely have I ever needed the extra voltages. The extra adapter to charge the actual battery pack is annoying. Wish it was a regular USB.

In hindsight, I would definitely go 3E.

I agree that there are better options if you don't need 9V or 12V output.

However, if you do need the other voltages, this is the cheapest and smallest option I've found. The higher voltages are mainly useful if you want to power something that was originally intended to be plugged into the wall or a cigarette lighter. I'm planning to use this to power a cheap portable dual-screen DVD player that has no internal battery. It should provide enough juice to watch 1 or 2 movies for a typical player.

There are other external battery packs with 9V/12V output but they are usually intended to power laptops and so are much larger (and higher capacity) and cost at least three times as much.

I love the 10000mAh brick. took it on a trip abroad for a month recently where I charged and discharged it completely multiple times and it always worked as intended (phone was charged from dead to full atleast 3 times - htc amaze 4g) and tablet (lenovo android tablet) was charged from dead to full atleast 1+ charge. the best part is the 12v port which I used to charge my asus 900a netbook one time from dead.
