Happy Chinese New Year!

Dear Anker fans,

Due to the upcoming Chinese New Year and Spring Festival, we will be out of office from Feb 4th through Feb 11th. Expect limited communication from us here on the community board during this time.

It’s the year of the Pig, so we thought we’d share a legend of the pig and how it became a part of the Chinese Zodiac.

In the Chinese zodiac legend, the Jade Emperor had called for all animals to race to the heavenly gate - the first 12 would be a part of the Zodiac. As you can imagine, the Pig arrived in last place. Why he was last, however, has two sides:

  1. One side claims that the Pig had stopped for a nap on his way to the gate, and sauntered in at the very last second.

  2. The other side claims that, because of the Pigs’ clearly disadvantaged shape and lack of physical prowess, he was destined to come in last.

What do you think about the Pig? Did he sleep on the way there or was it just too much for him?

Let us know what you think happened to the pig in the comments below, and be sure to include an image of the pig for good measure.

Best wishes for the Year of the Pig,

The Anker Team


It is my belief the pig stopped for a nap. It ain’t easy lugging around those extra pounds of loin and bacon.

I think pig tried as hard as he/she could. Pig just couldn’t make it because he/she was carrying all of my bacon for me. Shout out for pig and the lovely bacon!

Enjoy your days off guys :+1:

I reckon he was last because he lost his piggy bank and spent ages looking for it. :wink:

It is my firm belief that the little piggy was meandering around the town.

First, the little piggy went to the market. Then the piggy had to swing by his house to get his Anker Power Bank.

Next, the little piggy had lunch. I believe he had roast beef. Then he had none.

Then… you guessed it…

The little piggy went… Wee, wee, wee, all the way home!

Happy New Year to all of the staff and friends of @Ankerofficial!!!


Happy new year!

I’m partial to the nap theory… :smile::pig:

Though there are vacations in China,
I started my RoboVac “Willi” to work today.

Still strolling around in the living.
Hope there will be no strike after I forced him.

(How many beeps indicate a strike?
Could not find it in the manual) :joy:


Thanks for teaching me something new! I like the nap theory. He got tired and took a break. I can relate.

The pig kept walking, however due to its weight and size reached late… But it never gave up. Happy Chinese New Year

I think the pig took a nap and told every other animal that they better not take his spot…
