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 .

LG G3 supported on Anker 40W 5-Port?
Simple question as above- I am getting a slow charge on my G3, and when I put a USB inline amp/watt meter, I see the current draw starts at 1.4 Amps, then drops to approx 0.8 Amps after about 3 seconds-and stays there.Yet the offical charger works at 1.65 Amps. I am guessing the auto negotiation is not working properly between the Anker and the G3?Funny thing is, my "old"  25W Anker 5-port charger (without IQ tech), DOES pump out 1.3 Amps, when the G3 is plugged into the Android port?Can you confirm please?Thankscabs

Can you advise that this happens with all the ports on the 40W charger? Have you tried with different cables too?

Please give our customer service guys a shout at and they'll help you further.

Absolutely love it
I purchased this unit back in September and it's been working wonderfully since. I loved the set of cables and will definitely purchase some more 3ft cables from Anker soon. I'm an absolute Anker junkie and will trust their products blindly. Their customer service is top notch! If you have multiple devices at home, this unit is definitely for you!

Reliability issues
I want to purchase one of these units, particularly to simplify life when travelling but there are so many reports of failed ports (leading to "countlless" replacements in your own words) that I doubt the wisdom of buying one. I don't want to go through the hassle of having to replace one or, even worse, ending up far from home with a charger that doesn't charge. Can you give me some comfort/confidence? What is the problem and when will reliable units be avilable (in the UK)?

The latest version of the 5 port charger has no problem at all with dead ports. There is no stock remaining of the earlier versions which could occasionally experience dead ports so any purchases made through AnkerDirect will be the latest version.

We'd wholeheartedly recommend this charger to anyone.

Hi Pauls! I personally own this device (the 5 port version) and it's FANTASTIC. I've only ever had to use 4 ports at once, but the results were amazing. Fully charges both me and my wife's Galaxy SIII's in under two hours. We have it next to the couch and absolutely love it. We purchased the one with the 5 USB cables (1 x 6ft, 1 x 3ft and 3 x 1ft). The cables are superb and I'm glad to see that Anker is now selling USB cables as well. Personally, my favorites are the 3ft cable and will definitely be purchasing more soon.Now, regarding reliability with Anker products. I own several of them and have purchased countless more as gifts. I had all three office laptos (Lenovo E520) fitted with Anker replacement batteries and we love them. Below you can see my Amazon order screenshots so that you know that I'm for real.  As you can see, I've become quite the Anker junkie, I'm going to have to start charging royalties! Now, out of all of these purchases, I had one fail on me, the Astro 6000mAh battery that I purchased in Februrary. But customer support was fantastic, I reported my issue on a Monday and had a brand new, working unit in my hands by Friday that same week. Not only did they send me a replacement in faith, they paid for the replacement shipping for my defective unit. You don't get that kind of customer service just anywhere. Keep in mind though, the only authorized retailer for Anker products is Amazon, so I'd recommend sticking with them for your purchases (make sure the seller is AnkerDirect, my first purchase of an Anker product was through a third party, luckily, I never needed customer service on it). I hope that my post helps you decide on trusting one of the best aftermarket accesory companies out there.  Cheers!

Quote From Stormaggedon: Maybe it's the problem is happening due to Anker's website redesign.

3 ports failure
I recently purchased an Anker 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology from a retail store in my country (not a formal Anker shop).After 2 months of use, 3 of the USB ports no longer work correctly and do not charge my devices. This is unacceptable and terribly disappointing as I had expected better qualiy from Anker after researching on the Internet. When i contacted customer service, they declined my warranty claim citing that I did not purchase the product directly from them, and that their CRM system did not allow for a warranty exchange because of this, etc. To me, this is missing the point that a premium product such as the 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology SHOULD NOT HAVE 60% OF ITS CAPACITY FAIL IN LESS THAN 2 MONTHS OF LIGHT USAGE. I only used it to charge two HPs and 1 tablet at any one time max, and 3 ports shorted out rapidly (less than two months). I would appreciate if Anker addressed this issue directly rather than looking for TECHNICAL POINTS UPON WHICH THEY CAN VOID AND DECLINE A WARRANTY CLAIM ON A CLEARLY DEFECTIVE PRODUCT. Anker can hide between all the T&Cs and disclaimers they have, but at the end of the day consumers only remember IF A PRODUCT WAS GOOD, and HOW A COMPANY TREATED US WHEN THEIR PRODUCT WENT TO THE CRAPPER.  Think big and act wisely, Anker. This is extremely disappointing.

Before you get yourself too excited and disparage a company with a bunch of caps lock, send Anker's support an e-mail message to, let them know what's going on, and let them show you how they stand behind their products. good luck.

Do you think I did not do that? Read my post, did you miss the part where I wrote "When i contacted customer service, they declined my warranty claim citing that I did not purchase the product directly from them, and that their CRM system did not allow for a warranty exchange because of this, etc. ?I already emailed their support and escalated the issue to a supervisor. Their replies were the same.A) Quoting me the T&Cs of your warranty, i.e. hiding behind legalese.B) Hiding behind your resellers, and the resellers of your resellers, etc.C) Hiding behind the "constraints" of your CRM systems  
Reply Report as spam Nov 10, 2014 at 10:45 AM
Yep, you're right, sorry. Once the caps lock started, i just skipped to the end.... But if you purchased it from outside of their reseller lines, which you said, how is Anker to know that what you have is a genuine Anker product? How do *you* know that you have a genuine Anker product? Maybe your experience with this charger is due to the less than genuine parts that some Chinese manufacturer is putting into a black plastic case and slapping Anker's name on because Anker stands for quality? Maybe... But you expect Anker to stand behind it. If you want protections for the items you buy, don't be cheap, try to save on the retail cost and buy from someone not selling you genuine merchandise.

We're sorry that you are so disappointed.

We would never attempt to hide behind our Ts & Cs and we would certainly never arbitrarily decline a replacement for one customer when we have already replaced countless others.

On this occasion we're currently in the process of discussing the problem and will be back in touch with you soon, we will do all we can to make it up to you.

KYC, I feel your pain, but you need to understand that the red tape is there for a reason. Anker can't vouch for a reseller that doesn't honor their conditions. I can tell you right now that when my product failed I had a replacement in my hands within the same business week that I reported it. I stand behind this company all the way and hope that you will give them a second chance (and make any future purchases through Amazon). Did you speak to the person/company who sold you the product? If they were the original purchasers they could have made the return for you and you wouldn't have this issue. Good luck

I hope we can get an update if anything happenes KYC.
