The Anker PowerCore 10000mAh Portable Charger has arrived. Let the phones and tablets' batteries to drain. The test is about to start. Forget about electrical sockets. You are now the owner of a power brick...
How come this power charger fits in your pocket? It's as large as a credit card and as thick as 2 iPhones (iPhone7 for those precious about details). It weights close to nothing (180g or 6.35 oz) which means a lot of power, everywhere.
So far, so good.
A little black box full of power
The PowerCore charger was delivered in a nice box and, as usual with these products, was accompanied by a travel pouch, a micro-USB cable and the welcome and instructions booklets.
The charger is resistant and made of solid materials, which means it can be thrown into any purse or bag.
The level of power is shown by 4 little blue led-lights. There's a button on the side of the charger which function is to turn the energy indicator on. I'm not a big fan of devices that keep all lights always on like a Christmas tree, so I welcome the introduction of this very useful button. Switch it on only when needed.
And in my opinion...
Smart mobile devices (from all brands) are not very famous for staying charged for a long period of time (remember when you'd be charging your device once a week? Ok, twice if you were really a super power user). And so, chargers are becoming a 'must have'. Most often I don't carry one of these if I'm out and about for a couple of hours; I do however bring one when I leave home for the day, being it when I go to work or for leisure trips.
This PowerCore charger is a great companion for such trips. It's portable, powerful, lightweight and overall well made.
Anker team - here's a challenge. Keep it this light and compact and add a second USB port to charge 2 devices simultaneously. Challenge accepted? What? Is that what the PowerCore 13000mAh does?
Happy to report, that overall it's a big thumbs up for this Anker PowerCore 10000mAh Portable Charger.
DISCLAIMER: I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. Nonetheless, my review is fair and all words I'm writing express my honest opinion.
