Nowadays, having an external battery is a must. Smartphones are becoming faster and more powerful, while battery life is decreasing. If you find that your phone’s battery is not the best and you don’t have the time to charge it, then an external battery is the best option.
Anker is a well-known company which produces some of the best external batteries on the market. Not only they last for a long time, they have special features that charge devices faster than the competition.
What we have here is the 10,000 mAh external battery by Anker. As you can see, the box is pretty simple and it comes with a wooden pattern. Once you open the box, you will be greeted with a USB cable, some information cards, a user service card, a case for the battery and of course, the 10,000 mAh battery itself.
The battery is not very big. It is as big as a 5″ smartphone and as thick as two modern smartphones. You will have no issues putting it on your jeans and carrying it arround. The battery is very simple, it has two USB ports at the bottom with IQ charging technology. On the right side there is the micro USB charging port which is used to charge the battery. You can use the provided USB cable to connect it to your computer, or you can use an AC adapter.
There is a button on the front which when pressed, it will show how much battery is left. There are 4 lights which indicate the battery level.. To charge the phone, simply connect the USB cable to the battery and the phone and that is it. Your phone will charge.
The battery takes 4 to 5 hours to fully charge from 0, and you can charge a smartphone like the Galaxy S6 up to 4 times.
Overall, Anker is a great external battery with an excellent price tag. There are other alternatives on the market but Anker really shows how dedicated they are to provide high-quality and long lasting batteries.
