    I just wanna share some of these Anker products which I bought as accessories for my Apple devices. I believe you can only purchase them either direct from Anker or from Amazon.com. I do hope that some local resellers can offer them in the next few months. These are high-quality accessories that are more affordable than the leading brands. I have tested each of these products and can attest to their reliability and quality. What's best about Anker is that they include everything but the kitchen sink from cables to adapters and pouch/case for certain products. Customer service is superb as well, just drop them an email or drop 'em a question on their Facebook page.

    Here are some of the Anker products that I own or have personally tested:

    Anker® Astro Slim2 4500mAh Ultra-Slim Portable External Battery Charger Power Bank
    - this battery does come in handy to power my iPhone 5 which is quite a battery hog. I love how I can hold my iPhone and this external battery with one hand.

    Anker Astro Slim3 6000mAh Ultra-Slim Built-In-Cable Dual-Port Portable External Battery Backup Charger Power Bank
    - same as above, I usually bring this during long drives or flights. I even tried this to power up an external hard drive that couldn't draw power from my MacBook's USB port.

    Anker® 25W (5V/5A) 5-Port Wall Family-Sized Charger
    - I use this to free up space on our power strip, and it looks sleek on my computer table. Charging is way much faster than the Apple 5W power adapter. Compatible with iOS devices, bluetooth speaker, Kindle, external batteries/Powerbank, etc.

    Anker® 18W /3.6A Dual-Port Wall Charger
    - Great for traveling. I also stow one inside my backpack just in case I need a quick charge somewhere. I also bought extra to give away as gifts this Christmas.

    Anker® 24W / 2.4A + 2.4A (4.8A max) USB Car Charger
    - I use this car charger to power up my iPhone or iPad. Also perfect as a stocking stuffer.

    Anker® Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Built in Microphone
    - I use this for my FaceTime and Skype calls, speakerphone feature is really neat!

    Anker® Bluetooth Stereo Audio Music Receiver and Transmitter 2-In-1 Adapter
    - I use this adapter to allow Bluetooth connectivity on all of my old speakers and MP3 players, including my clock radio!


    Can't wait to try this one when it becomes available

    Bought this one in Amazon but unfortunately it broke after 1 week. Anker had Amazon refunded it coz it is already here in the Philippines.

    It was working for a week, i already set it up as the family charging station... But then it konked out. I sent them an email and asked for a full refund including freight... Their customer service is great!

    Asked them what to do with the defective product... Their reply...

    'I understand you are in Philippines and can not return the defective charger. It is OK, please recycle or dispose of it at your convenience.

    If there is anything else we may help with, please feel free to let us know, we will do our best.


    Thank you!'

    i bought the 5 port charger via a local online seller. Loved the fact that it is 5A. i previously bought a capdase not knowing it was just 2A. worked fine but one time one port seemed to be not working. Good thing it wasn't the port for the ipad. I just used the other remaining ports. Too bad there seems to be a number of defective units bought by philmug members.

    I love my Anker Powerbank; the only thing I didn't like was the power button that's easily depressed while in a bag. Many at times I would bring out the powerbank only to find out the LED flashlight has been ON the whole time.

    Bev with how many USB 3 ports we get it may be a hot seller.

    What items do you currently have on stock now? I'm looking for a way to charge my two USB devices through the cig lighter at the same time.
