We live in tech world, it’s time to embrace it. We all have multiple products that we use in and out our homes. Seeing a that “Low Battery” notification is almost like a stab in the heart. Then we start panicking and turning off all the battery hogging features and dim the brightness until we start squinting. This is why we all need an external battery pack.
I bought the Anker Astro E3 after a frightening night last winter. My car battery went dead on the way home and my iPhone battery was dead. It was a snow storm and I was on a road with no street lights in the middle of deersville. I was scared out of my mind. I had to walk to find someone with a cell phone to call AAA. Never again! The very next day I went on Amazon and bought this from the Bestsellers External Battery list.
The Anker Astro E3 is a 10000mAh Lithium Polymer battery that charge an iPhone over four times, a large capacity phone like the Galaxy S5 two and a half times or most tablets at least once. Just look up the size of your device battery and do the math. I have the older model, you can see that one outlet is for Apple products and one for Androids. Ankers newest Generation of products has the PowerIQ technology the detects your device to deliver its fastest possible charge speed up to 3 amps. So plug in whatever product you want in whatever outlet.
It takes over a half a day to fully charge it and you’ll need your Wall Charger to do it. The newer products charge faster I believe. The Astro E3 is slim, sleek with a smartphone-like design featuring a 4-LED power meter. It is kind of heavy, weighing-in at 8.16 ounces. Most if not all Anker products come with 18-month warranty and friendly customer service (I had to email them once and they were very nice).
If you have a family or have many devices like me an external battery is a must have, toss those car chargers and get one. Trust me you need one. If not this one, the Anker brand is your go-to. Anker has the highest average review rating of any charging brand. One in three chargers sold on Amazon is from them and they have over 6 million customers. They are affordable too, you can get one for about $25.
