A 10000mAh External Battery – Power Bank for Samsung, Iphone and other mobile phones: Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger
Have you ever been out on your trip – exploring a new city, browsing a map on your mobile phone while you were hiking, trying to check if your plane is on time while at the airport – and running out on phone battery? We bet you did: everybody does and mobile phones seems to have an unique ability to drain their batteries in the very same moment we need it most.
A so called “power bank” AKA an external battery is a must have for every traveler, and this one seems to be one of the best external batteries on the market: it’s very small (smaller than a credit card!), long lasting (will charge an Iphone 6S or a Samsung S3 three times before being drained out) and lightweight, so it won’t add unnecessary weight on your travel backpack.
Let’s have a look at the key features:

And now let’s have a look at a couple product reviews on Amazon:

I’ve used Anker chargers for many years now, and currently have three different ones in my household. Considering how much capacity this charger has, it’s incredible how small it is. It works great overall, no issues noted with it so far.
I included photos of the three chargers I currently own. On the left is the older 10,000mAh charger, right is the newer 20,000mAh charger, this charger in the middle. This charger is much smaller in length and slightly smaller in width, but slightly thicker. It has the same profile as the 10,000mAh charger but significantly shorter.
I used this exclusively to charge my phone (LG G4, 3000mAh battery) for a few days to see the performance of the charger. I used it to charge my phone both without use and with use. The first charge was without use. It charged my phone from 5% battery up to 100% battery over the course of only 1 hour and 18 minutes, surprisingly fast (1.2% per min). The next charge I did was during typical use, bringing it from 14% to 90% in 1 hour and 13 minutes (1.05% per min), not too far off of the charging rate without use. The last charge was mainly while using the phone as a GPS in my car. That brought the phone from 6% up to 94% over the course of 1 hour 57 minutes (0.75% per min) before the charger was finished.
All things said, the charger worked amazingly well, much faster than the previous iteration of the 10,000mAh charger and much better than I expected. I used the charging cable that was included with the charger for this test, but have been using my own cables since then as I have much shorter cables that I prefer for some cases and much longer cables for others.
Also the 18 month warranty is another feature that keeps me purchasing Anker products.

I am a power bank junkie and no matter what brand I buy I always end up coming back to Anker batteries. Currently I own 8 different Akner batteries all the way up to the 20100mAh big boy. Recently my favorite battery bank was the Anker PowerCore+ 10050 battery until now. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the new PowerCore 10000mAh battery which is boasted to be smaller and lighter than other 10,000mAh batteries. Right off the bat as soon as I took it out of the packaging I had high hopes for this battery and it did not disappoint. I placed it next to the PowerCore+ 10050 and you can see it is slightly smaller length and thickness wise. You can also feel the difference in the weight which makes carrying it around in your pocket or bag a plus. As far as usage Anker claims it can charge an Apple iPhone 6s up to four times, and I can say that is wrong. They seriously under rated it which is a positive thing. The iPhone 6s has a 1,715mAh battery, similar to the iPhone 6 battery at 1,810mAh. I was able to charge my iPhone 6 solely off of this charger 5 1/2 times before it was completely drained. There were also no issues delivering the volts and amps needed to quickly charge my phone as fast as it could as you can see by the pics below. All in all this is an amazing battery bank and for the money a no brainier. It has taken the place of my primary EDC battery along with my 1m lightening cable. If you need a dependable battery for the go I highly recommend the Anker PowerCore 10000mAh battery.
Included in the packaging with the Anker PowerCore 10,000mAh is a Micro USB Cable (used for charging the battery as well as charging Android phones with Micro USB ports), and a mesh carrying case to keep it all safe.
