Today I would like to talk about the POWERCORE II PORTABLE CHARGER 10000mAh, I received it as a test product and I want to share with you my opinion and experience.
Comes in a small carton, blue and white, inside it is accompanied by a usb cable and user manual. Also comes with a well padded black protective case.
I like it to come in a small box, just the right size,I consider it a friendly act with nature.
The portable charger is 10000mAh. Matte black in my opinion.
One of the sides (back) is of silicon material and it has engraved in the whole of its body the word ANKER. This detail surprised me because of all the portable chargers this is the first one I see with that detail.
For my preference is very good that new design. Is attractive and innovative.
Its size is ideal to carry in your pocket … to take it with the phone in one hand. Is light weight and slim body.
The other side (forward) is of a solid material and also carries the word ANKER engraved in a smaller and discreet size.
Has small blue lights and they are the indicators of thepower level. Four lights on means 100% charge. Two lights means 50%. And finally, a light means 25%.
On its side you can see that it has recorded “10000mAh”.
On the other side (parallel) there is a round button, which when pressed shows the power level with the lights.
Has an input “imput” and next to an input usb IQ.
I have charged your battery in full to test how many loads it yields. I use the galaxy s7, and I have done very well 3 charges taking the phone with a 20% charge.
In my opinion … if your looking for a charger that is not a nuisance tranaportarlo and want greater battery capacity, this is that you need to have it !!!
Very nice review @Daiross !! Looks like a great battery pack. I am curious though as to “imput”
Looks like another Anker product on my wish list. Can never have too many power banks
Another great review, @Daiross!
Where else do you review your products?
Thanks @Daiross. It’s a good buying guide for PowerCore II Portable charger!
Awesome. I’ve been looking forward to this one
It’s currently unavailable.
Now if we could only find it.
In one of the FB postings it mentions stock back late May / early June so wait a couple of weeks.
I for one think Anker should shrink its product set, too many, confusing and they make each in smaller quantities so stock vanishes too easily.
I said this months ago. Also, why is the PD PowerCore+ out of stock…?
I know, its dumb at so many levels. My recommendation is to terminate product lines and focus on keeping a smaller product set in stock.
I could be wrong in this observation: it is the Lithium Polymer newer products which run of stock more easily, the older 18650 based Lithium seem to be kept better in stock.
I keep forgetting. We think the only power banks with the new batteries are the PowerCore II 10000 & 20000, correct? Also, what are your thoughts on the new batteries?
Not necessarily complete:
- Slim 5000
- Car starter
- II 20000
- II 10000
This is based on their shape. The square corner ones vs the rounded corner ones.
Also it does a disservice to Anker to use mAh, because the Voltage is higher on Li Poly. There is more actual energy (about 6%) in the II 10000 than the 10000.
So probably not the new PD PowerCore right?
The PD looks more like just a modified 26800. So that’s 4 wide 2 tall so 8 cells of 3400mAh 18650 = 27200 so they are playing safe calling it 26800. It is a 27W output.
The 26800 before it was 30W output made up of 3 ports each 3A max sharing 6A total, 5V. So they went backwards with USB-PD.
The input to the 26800 was 2x2A5V = 20A input but from the reviews is seems like the 26800 PD is only 15W input, again going backwards.
Or in other words, the PD is hardly a step forwards, more of sideways to slightly backward step. Where is gained is it took existing mature technology and modified it slightly to suit those wanting USB-PD. Oh and they charged about $23 more for it.
Caveat: I only know what Anker have written, I’ve not torn these apart.
Thoughts on the PowerCore II 20000
One downside might be the lack of IQ 2.0
