Even charge a trove of 5 power-hungry tablets all at once.

Compact and cable-chaos free.

About the size of a deck of playing cards (3.6 x 2.3 x 1.0in), place on your workstation, nightstand, or even the entryway desk - creating the perfect charging hub for your gear or the family's.Or, take it traveling; the unibody construction withstands bumping when stowed in your bag.

Powerful yet safe.

Using top-grade microchips and built-in fail-safes, we can ensure you receive full power and also full safety. We incorporated a unique port-level circuit protection system that shuts it down in the event of overvoltage, overcurrent, overheating or short circuits.

For optimal use.

• Please use your device’s original cable or a third-party certified one (such as MFi).
• Compatible with all Apple and Android smartphones, tablets (including the Nexus 7) and other USB-charged devices. The iPod nano, iPod Classic, HP TouchPad, LG G2, Asus tablets and some GPS and Bluetooth devices are not supported.

Customer Reviews

Eric O.
  • Fantastic product, fantastic price, fantastic service!
  • This product is exactly what I have been waiting for. The quality is very high, even including the cord. The USB connectors are sturdy and the power supply is ample for the charging of several smartphones and tablets. **One notice to consumers is this: There is a known issue regarding the the individual over-current protection on each of the USB ports. If an event occurs that causes over-current draw from a port, the internal fuse will protect the product and any attached devices. That is GREAT! The problem is that the fuse is irreversible damaged in the process. This is a good thing too, as that is typical for fuses. The manufacturer recognizes that once this occurs, the affected port is left unusable. An update has been made in the products design to instead use automatically resetting circuit breaker-type overload protection. If you have a the original revision of this product, which I do, then the company will accept your RMA of the deice and return to you an updated revision, free of charge. Now that is customer service!

  • really nice unit. I could have gotten an Apple charger ...
  • Really, really nice unit. I could have gotten an Apple charger for my iPad that was $20 and instead I got this for $25 and can charge two iPads and 2 phones. All the ports work and I like the 18 month warranty. I have 3 of these. I bought one and liked it so much I got two more, one for the office and one for traveling.I never give something 5 stars unless it really goes well beyond my expectations and this one got my coveted 5 stars.

  • Faster charging.
  • I have it near the bed, and charge everything with it. My iPhone has a battery case, and with the normal AC adapter it takes about 8 hours to charge the phone and the case. With this it only takes 5--6 hours.

  • Handy
  • These gadgets are great -- I have several for use at home, and it's especially good for travel given that hotels are often woefully short of available electrical outlets. I have also found it handy in airports for the same reason.

  • It also worked fine on a recent trip to Europe
  • The Anker has worked flawlessly for me to charge an iPad and a cell phone simultaneously. I tested it a couple of times with five devices without issue. It also worked fine on a recent trip to Europe, albeit with a power plug adapter.
