Q2.  What kind of USB charging cables should I use with this charger?
To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device's original cable or a third-party certified cables (such as MFI).
Q3.  What should I do if certain port/ports fail to work?
A. Please unplug the power cord from the back of the charger and any USB cables from the ports on the front.
B. After 15 minutes plug the power cord back in and try a different USB cable in the non-working port to see if the problem has been resolved.
C. Please email us at support@ianker.com during your 18-month warranty if your device appears to be defective or you need further help.
Q4.   What if the Anker 5-Port Desktop Charger is not charging my device(s)?
A. Check to ensure that your device is USB-powered with a power input of 5V and between 0 and 2.4A.
B. Check to ensure that the power cord isn’t broken, is connected to an active wall outlet and also firmly connected to the Anker 5-Port Desktop
Charger .
C. Use a different usb cable to double check. If the issue is our wall charger, please feel free to email us at support@ianker.com to claim the 18 months warranty.
Q5.  What if the Anker 5-port Wall Charger charges my device(s) slowly?
A. Check to ensure that the cable you are using to charge is the original cable that came with your device.
B. Check to ensure that the total input current required by your devices is not higher than 8A.
C. Please email us at support@ianker.com during your 18-month warranty if your device appears to be defective or you need further help.
Q6.  Why are my Samsung Galaxy S5, S4 and Note 3 devices charging slightly slower from this charger than the original charger that came with my device?
The heightened sensitivity of these devices to voltage input may in some cases slow their charging speed.
Q7.  My device charges at 1 Amp, will this charger’s 8 Amp output harm it?
No, the charger will only supply the maximum charge current allowed by your device up to 2.4 Amps from each port. That is to say, if you use a 2.4A charger with a device drawing 1A, it will only draw 1A.
Q8.  How can I find the same power cord if I lost the original one that came with the 40W charger?
It is a standard C7 cord, they're easily available online.
Q9.  When the charger is plugged into an outlet but has no devices plugged in, will it consume power? What is the standby power consumption?
The charger will consume almost no power in this state. Its standby power consumption is rated at ≤0.5W.
Q10.  Can I use this charger in other counties?
Yes, this charger is compatible with 100-240V. However, the plug is designed for the country it was originally shipped to. You may need to buy a universal Outlet Plug Adapter .

Not any faster than my 1A charger?
I just bought this for my wife so she could have a high speed charger. To test the charger, I plugged in my cell phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) which normally uses a 2A charger. My phone immeditaly warned me that this charge would be slow and I should connect to a different charger. Isn't this thing supposed to produce 2.4A??Could it be the cable I'm using (it was from my wife's 1A charger)??

It is very possible that the cable is slowing down the charing process so try a different cable first. Not everyone makes quality cables, I have had that same problem using different micro USB cables with my Anker batteries that I had purchased from Amazon. I was very happy when Anker finally began selling their own accessory cables because I have never had a problem with an Anker cable when it came with one of the Anker batteries I purchased. I bought a 5-pack of Anker 1 ft cables and use them for everything.  So again, try a different cable first, if you do not have any, order a set of Anker micro USB cales, they are well worth the investment.

Your phone actually gave you a message that charging would be slow? I've never had that happen. I support gherardini's suggestion that it is more likely the cable than the charger that's at fault. Not that the cable is bad ... you might be using a "data only" cable which looks physically identical but is not designed to support charging. That sounds like why the phone is giving you an error message.

We don't ship it with the three pin European plug but we do ship with the UK plug. Depending on where you order from the charger would be shipped with the plug appropriate for the country of sale.

The reason these devices don't work is their low power draw, you'll need to confirm that their power draw is higher than 0.05A and they should charge just fine.

I hope this helps but if you need any further info then our customer service team are ready and waiting to help.

Love this device.
If you are on the fence over getting this device to charge up to 5 of your devices, then I suggest you get it. The only thing that might have changed my mind about this device is I now learned Anker makes a 6 port version 60W version for about $10 more.  I see that the new 6 port charger also features an LED light for making sure the charger itself has power.In my family, I am the electronic's guru and therefore like the provider of all things charging and all things power.  When we travel, I don't leave home without this device.  This device charges everything fastI absolutely love the PowerIQ technology. Gone are the days of fighting over or being mindful of which port to connect your device to.  No longer do you accidentally plug into the wrong port on the charger and actually take your device off the charger hours later with it having less of a charge than when you set it to charge.  In our bedroom, we have USB chargers built into the duplex outlets, so we rarely need this device.  Of course when I am getting ready for a trip, and I need to charge my ANKER external batteries, iPads, tablets and phones, then this device comes to the rescue!  I now see that a cradle/stand is available for this charger, so might consider that for exclusive home use since the 2 ports in the wall are not going to cut it anymore.

Awesome review. I love mine. It has the place of honor on the top of the pile of charging spaghetti.

Especially for travel. No more trying to remember to take separate chargers for each device and then trying not to forget one of them in the hotel room (which I do on every trip). The 6-port probably won't do anything any better, but that doesn't mean I don't want one. The LED light is a personal preference. For travel it would be nice to be sure that the outlet isn't switched (how many times have I plugged stuff in to charge overnight to find the batteries dead in the morning).

Does it have Auto-cutoff ??
Does this product have auto-cutoff after full charge? i.e after a device is 100% charged, does it automatically puts it off, so that it prevents the device from over charging ? is it recommended for HTC One E8. If i plug my device to this charger overnight, will my device be damaged?

It is absolutely compatible with the HTC as well as any current phone or tablet. Your phone is designed not to "overcharge" or be damaged if you left it plugged in overnight. Follow the same usual charging procedures with the Anker charger as you would with the charger than came with your device.

Yes, but to be clear, I think this is more of a device configuration/feature than one of the battery. The batttery is designed to turn off its charging cycle if nothing is asking for a charge. But if the device that is attached to the battery does not turn off its charging cycle [and most modern devices do like the HTC], the battery doesn't know any difference of whether the device [phone/tablet/gps... whatever] is at 25% charge of 100% and keeping it there. So keep that in mind.

Yes, it will stop charging as soon as the attached device stops drawing power. It won't cause any damage at all to devices that are left plugged in overnight.

And yes, it'll work well with your phone.

As a wall charger it doesn't have an mAh rating. However, each port can output 2.4A (max) with a maximum of 8A shared between the ports.

Once you have more than 8A of devices plugged into the charger, how does it handle the distribution to each port? Does it drop everything down to equal distribution? Or do some ports get more than others?
