Hello Anker Family,
I’m always curious to find out what people take with them when they leave their homes for the day.
I live in NJ and commute to NYC every day. Portable devices are a must for me.
I have my iPad Mini 3 and my Samsung Galaxy S5. And, of course, I have my Anker Astro E5 16750mAh to keep me powered all day.
What about you?
I’m the exception to the rule for sure. I am IT Director for a law firm and a diehard Blackberry (Passport) user for many years. We have multiple offices, so I travel quite a bit and also visit client sites. I travel with the following:
My BlackBerry Passport, iPad mini, and usually one of my Canon Digital Point and Shoot cameras. To keep them all powered, I pack the Anker PowerCore 20100, Anker PowerCore Edge (A1283), Anke PowerLine+ Lightning 3ft cable and even my Anker Wireless Bluetooth Speaker ( must have my music).
When I have my laptop, I have my Anker Wireless Ergonomic mouse
I love to travel when not working and the Anker Products go with me everywhere I go!
I’m never without my Anker Astro E1. I’ve lost count the amount of times that it’s had my back when my iPhone needs a quick juicing.
I pair it with the Anker braided lighting cable for constant power on the go.
The Astro is also fantastic for keeping my PS Vita charged up if I don’t wanna take the charger with me!
Astro3 - USB C cables and dont forget the soundbuds, I never leave home without any of these!
I take my Anker powercore, my removable batteries for my note 4 and whatever other accessories I think I’ll need.
I now travel everywhere with my Anker Powercore 5000 Slim / Anker Lightning cables or the 1000mAH Anker battery pack. Great for all travelling haha.
Despite working in IT I keep my tech to a minimum when leaving home for the day, just my iPhone 6s with Anker glass screen protector and SlimShell. The rest I can use at work!
True, I tend to carry the battery charger even though I charge most of my stuff from my work PC haha, working in IT has it’s perks
At a minimum, I keep a 5000 mAh battery, PowerDrive+ 2 and PowerLine+ (Kevlar reinforced) 6’ USB cable.
Since last Thanksgiving I have always had, at least one, Astro E7 26800 mAh with me, if not both. Since I go to Disneyland everyday and post to social media live from the park I always have to keep my phone powered-up. Before I got the Astro E7’s I was using a couple of Pro2 20000 mAh batteries. #Disney366
Always carry my PowerCore 10,000 and my Anker replaceable battery for my LG G3
PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C and assorted cables. You never know when you need to charge your device or coworkers especially when many of them play Pokemon GO.
PowerCore 5000, I have a few Anker power packs, but this one stay with me in my work bag
Depends on what I’m doing.
Out and about (fun or appointments) without the car. Obvious the phone but also my Z970 that’s converted into a podcast player, 2 Anker portable chargers, headphones, a AC and DC charger and charging cable. Sometimes the Note4 tablet.
For work just the 2 phones, I have access to everything else that I need in the car and at work.
Personally, I have multiple setups, depending on where I am going/what I am doing.
For School, I usually bring my iPad 3, Y700 (Lenovo), my Anker PowerCore 20100, and my iPhone 5S with an OtterBox Defender case.
When I am going out for a short amount of time, I usually bring my iPhone 5S, iPad Air 2, and a flash drive for my iPad/iPhone, then my Anker PowerCore 20100.
For a longer amount of time, I bring my Anker PowerCore 20100, and 10000, just in case my family members need a battery as well. I then pack my iPad Air 2, iPhone 5S, and my flash drive.
I bring my phone, my ASUS T100 tablet, sometimes my ASUS ROG G55, my hello Zolo 3000 mAh battery, my PowerCore 20100 battery, my SoundCore, a few flash drives, and lots and lots of cables lol.
Well it usually depends on how long I’m going to be away from home. But in almost all situations I bring my phone and in ear headphones with me.
I work in IT and in my backpack I carry multiple Anker products. We’re looking at a Anker Powercore 10000, 3ft. Powerline+ micro usb cable, 3ft. Powerline+ USB-C cable, and a 3-Port USB 3.0 and Ethernet Hub. This is in addition
to the normal stuff I carry like a portable hard drive, ethernet cable, bluetooth mouse, usb 3.0 SD card reader…
The Anker Powercore 10000 with quick charge has been such a lifesaver for me. Working at a major auction house in NYC, this has been essential for myself and my colleauges.
I recently upgraded my EDC battery from an older Anker 12,000 mAH to a PowerCore Speed 10000 to keep my Axon 7 and iPad Pro going strong. I took a pair with me on a 4-day trip and never had a battery problem. I also bring my USB-Serial dongle and 13" MacBook Air, because I’m an IT Guy and that’s what I need to sort out any issues I might come across with switches & firewall.
