Anker products have always impressed me and the PowerCore II Slim 10000mAh is no exception. It’s a 10,000mAh rated power bank that has been resized to the approximate size of a larger-screened mobile phone like the iPhone 6/6S and about twice as thick. The power bank measures in at 2.6” x 5.39” x 0.61”. This makes it convenient to piggy-back the phone on top of the power bank to used as a stacked unit. One face of the power bank is rubberized (silicone) to be grippy so there’s no slippage of the phone on the power bank while using it in this stacked configuration. Of course, you do not need to use it in this manner and you can just use it as a normal power bank with no stacking involved.
The power bank’s capacity measures 10,000mAh. That’s about 3 charges for iPhone 7 or 2 charges for Galaxy S7. Expect multiple full charges for other phones and devices.
The power bank is able to charge Apple, Android and Quick Charge devices at their fastest possible speed. Yes, the power bank is Quick Charge capable for both charging the device (power bank to device) as well as charging the power bank itself (wall charger to power bank). A Quick Charge capable charger is required for the latter for the increased charge speed.
For recharging the power bank itself, the recharge times are:
Using 5V/1A Charger: 10 Hours
Using 5V/2A Charger: 5 Hours 40 Minutes
Using a Quick Charge Charger: 4 Hours
The package includes:
PowerCore II Slim 10000 portable charger
60cm Micro-USB Cable (no Apple Lightning cable is included)
Worry-free 18-month warranty and friendly customer service
The packaging is Anker’s evironmentally-friendly, blue/black/white signature Anker-fare.
The power bank performs as advertised and is a pleasure to use. The blue LED indicators which show the charge level of the battery, as well as how much the power bank has been charged, each show a 25% per LED capacity. Fit and finish is impeccable and quality is top-notch with a very robust design and feel.
Typical Anker quality, this power bank will serve you very well for all your charging needs.
