PowerCore II 10000 Review
I have had a few PowerCore portable batteries from Anker over the years and I’ve always opted for the bigger battery so it would last me for a whole weekend when I was working away at a festival or similar event.
So when Anker offered me the opportunity to test and review the New Upgraded PowerCore II 10000 I jumped at the chance. The summer season is over and I’m covered for weekends and what I need now is something that fits in my pocket a bit better. I’ve got a few gigs coming up (Liam Gallagher and Kasabian) with my daughter so we will definitely need a juice boost during the evenings and this beaut looks ideal.
The device arrives in lovely brand new packaging, embossed with Anker products and the slogan “Charge Fast Live More” which is so true especially with this PowerCore where PowerIQ 2.0 has been upgraded to be multidirectional (I have no idea, but it works) allowing for faster input charging. So using a quick charge charger can have it fully topped up and ready to go again in 4 hours
One of the things I love most and always have about Anker is the gratitude they have for their customers. You always get a thank you from them before you’ve even opened the box.
In the Box

Happy Card (Worry Free 18 Month Warranty)
The new sleek textured design is pleasing on the eye and adds a nice bit of grip. I particularly like the LED Wheel. On previous models there were 4 blue LED’s but I will admit, I get a bit excited when I press the button and the LED’s light up in turn to show how much power is available. My daughters first reaction was “Ooooooh thats so cool”
When charging the PowerCore II 10000 the LED’s light up to show how much power is in there and then the other LED’s flash in turn around the wheel to show its charging. Did I say I love this new LED Wheel :-)?
This palm sized PowerCore packs enough juice to fully charge:
iPhone 7 3 times over
Galaxy S7 or S8 just over twice
iPad Mini just over once
I’ve drained the battery on this charging my iPhone 7 Plus and had just under 3 full charges out of it.
I’m not a tech guy, I just love gadgets and what they can do to make my life better. So of those of you that need to know the detail I’ve pulled this from Amazon (there are also a couple of limitations which you might want to be aware of too)
Ultra Compact - Fits in your hand, pocket or bag easily (Half the size of its big brothers )
Sleek Design - Textured and looks great
High Capacity - Packs enough power to get you through even the busiest of days
Upgraded PowerIQ 2.0 - Fast Charging
LED Wheel - Slick power information
I’m finding it very hard not to like this so will just say not fully compatible with all devices out there but I guess you could say that about so many products.
A fast charging power bank, ideal in size with enough power to get you through 1 or 2 days easily and ultra compact so no bulging pockets.
Great for every occasion when you are going to be away from the socket for a several hours but know you are going to use your phone/tablet loads.
