1. Why do you use Anker products?
I started using Anker products in 2012. Needed a reliable portable battery because my smartphone would keep running out of power. I use Anker products today for the same reason. In my experience, they are more reliable or at least as reliable as established “big name” brands.
2. What’s your favorite Anker product and why？
This keeps changing as I buy different products and as my needs change. For today, it is the Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 PD. I have 4 of these.
3. What benefits have you gotten from using Anker products？
Batteries/cables: saved my ass several times when I forgot to charge the phone overnight.
Earbuds: affordable wireless earbuds saved me lots of money.
4. What problems have you had while using Anker products or other electrical products and how have you solved those problems?
I had 2 defective batteries. Remember the ones where if you shook it, the battery powered on? I had purchased 2 of them, and both eventually died. The first one died within the warranty period, so Anker replaced that with a different SKU. The second one died recently (4 years after purchase). I use it as a paperweight.
5. Have you ever used an Anker product in an unusual situation？
Not me. But my wife did. About 4-5 years ago, she was about to go into surgery (she’s an anesthesiologist). The surgeon typically uses his iPhone to play music during surgery, but his iPhone was low on power. My wife casually whipped out her Anker battery and handed it to him. The best part of this story: another colleague in the OR turned to my wife and said, “Your husband got that for you?” Everyone at that office knew me as the gadget guy / tech support.
