  • Astro Pro 2 GEN 1 battery pack
  • Anker products are very well made and the Anker Astro Pro 2 generation (GEN) 1 battery pack is very elegant and extremely well-made.I opted to buy this first generation (GEN 1) lithium polymer battery pack rather than the second generation model (GEN 2) due to its ability to be directly charged from a solar panel (15-19V 1.3A = 24.7W maximum) for camping and field work. For this task, I use the 10 ft DC cable with a 5.5 x 2.5 mm male plug from the excellent Instapark Mercury 27W solar panel ($ 110.00) which directly plugs into the Astro Pro 2 GEN 1 battery pack. The long cable ensures that you can keep the battery out of the sun while it is being charged from the solar panel.http://www.amazon.com/Instapark%C2%AE-Mercury27-Portable-Automotive-Batteries/dp/B00EVFEBKU/ref=pd_sim_sbs_auto_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0EDR86J9Y5ZCG5TM8VSRI have been delighted with the results and very happy with this system. By contrast the Anker Astro Pro2 GEN 2, is only provided with an AC charger (DC 12V 2A (max)) and Anker unfortunately do not produce a car plug charger for this GEN 2 battery pack and therefore I would have to step down the solar voltage to 12V 2A (max) (e.g. the small and inexpensive ($ 19.00) PST-DC292 DC/DC converter from PowerStream not available from Amazon) and connect it via the unusual sized 4.3 x 1.65 mm input plug, which I have not been able to obtain!Thus I am delighted that the GEN 1 battery pack can be charged via this solar panel and I can then charge laptops via the multiple supplied plugs, or tablets and phones via the USB port (5V 2.0 A). REMEMBER THE PRESS THE CHARGE BUTTON ON THE BATTERY PACK TO INITIATE CHARGING VIA THIS USB PORT! Much better still is that the GEN 1 battery pack has a much higher (> 2.1 times) output (12V 4A, 16V 3.5A, 19V 3.0A) than the GEN 2 (5V 4.5A (max) = 22.4W). I therefore use the 12V 4A (48W) DC output by directly plugging in the 5.5 x 2.5mm male to female car plug (BixPower/BixNet) with a double (Anker: 5V 2.4A & 2.4A) ($ 10.00) or triple (Bolse ($ 15.00): 5V 2.4A, 1.5A & 1.5A; Voltmate ($ 20.00): 5V 2.4A, 2.4A & 1.5A) INTELLIGENT car plugs to USB charging ports.http://www.amazon.com/BiXPower-Cigarette-Socket-Connector-Adapter/dp/B007SP4KV0/ref=pd_sim_auto_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0ENN4B2T4TPWB3A0ZPX4http://www.amazon.com/Anker%C2%AE-Dual-Port-Charger-PowerIQ-Technology/dp/B00B8M4IMK/ref=sr_1_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1408113587&sr=1-2&keywords=anker+car+USB+chargerhttp://www.amazon.com/Charger-Provides-Maximum-Technology-Motorola/dp/B00GLIBGW6/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1408113434&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Bolse+car+USB+chargerhttp://www.amazon.com/Volmate%C2%AE-6-3A-31-5W-Tri-USB-Charger/dp/B00LIE9T5Y/ref=sr_1_3?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1408113525&sr=1-3&keywords=triple+car+USB+chargerThese Anker, Bolse and Voltmate USB charging devices can also be directly used from the 18V 1.5A solar panel via a 5.5 x 2.5 mm female to female car plug (Bix Power $ 10.00), since their input can range from 12V to 24V. Thus, for the extra money, the Anker Astro Pro 2 GEN 1 battery pack can charge more USB input devices than the GEN 2 battery pack, but also be charged from a moderately sized (27W) solar panel.http://www.amazon.com/BiXPower-Cigarette-Lighter-Connector-Adapter/dp/B008UCOYWA/ref=pd_sim_auto_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=0WB33XKYK2JXQJ0HCZ77To get the maximum life (500 recharges) out of the Anker GEN 1 battery pack it is a good idea to read the information regarding lithium ion/polymer batteries from Battery University since they should not be stored fully charged and never allowed to be fully depleted. Lithium polymer batteries are regarded to be safer that lithium ion batteries with respect to fire resulting from over-charging them. The Anker Astro Pro 2 is rated at 20,000 mAh or 74 Wh and is therefore well below the 100 Wh limit for taking on international flights (as carry-on items) (N.B. you cannot transport such large lithium ion or polymer batteries in checked baggage), and I put electrical tape over the input and output ports. You can check the IATA transport regulations from the web.One concern is that the input and output of the Anker GEN 1 battery pack are the same size (5.5 x 2.5mm) and therefore you could plug in a device to the wrong port. IF THIS HAPPENS YOU HAVE TO PLUG IT INTO THE WALL CHARGING SOCKET OR THE SOLAR PANEL TO RE-ACTIVATE IT. I label the input and output ports on the top since their labels are on the bottom of the battery pack and put electrical tape on the input port to prevent any confusion.In conclusion, I have been delighted with the Anker Astro Pro 2 GEN 1 battery pack due to its high capacity, elegant and well-made style, and which can be charged directly from a solar panel as well as having a very high output allowing it to charge many more USB dependent devices than the GEN 2 battery pack.

Customer FAQ

Q1.  Can I use USB cables other than those provided with my Anker external battery?
To ensure complete safety and best performance, we strongly recommend using your device’s original cable, a third-party certified cable (such as MFI) or our included cable.
Q2.  Does it work with the new iPhone 5s, 5c?
Yes. But the Apple connector is not included. Please use your device's original cable.
Q3.  Anker external batteries' efficiency.
ALL external batteries lose power due to voltage conversion and circuit resistance.

Approximately 20% of Astro 2nd Generation external battery’s total capacity is consumed, including power lost from circuit heat and voltage conversion within the external battery (approximately 6%) and the charging cable and your device (approximately 14%). This efficiency rate is 15% higher than the industry average of 35%.

Older Astro batteries have lose approximately 30%.

According to industrial standards, all external batteries are labeled based on their raw cells capacity not efficiency. Like others, we are following this standard.
Q4.  How long will the battery lasts while not in use?
Generally, most of our external batteries' static power consumption is lower than 100uA, which will take between 3.5 and 20 years to drain the battery completely.

However, the chemicals within the li-ion battery will gradually become less active over prolonged periods without use. Most will die in 2 years of inactivity.

To extend your battery's life:
1. Charge and recharge it at least once every 3-4 months.
2. Do not over-charge or over-discharge it. It is best to keep it charged between 5%-95%.
Q5.  Can Anker external batteries be used for international travel?
Yes. Be sure the USB adapter you bring with is compatible with the voltage of the country you will be traveling to. An adapter's voltage input is usually printed on the adapter.
Q6.  Can external batteries be taken on board airplanes?
Yes, all Anker external batteries can legally and safely be taken on board airplanes. Here are the relevant requirements:

Quoted from Federal transportation security rules (Effective January 1, 2008):
Lithium ion batteries (a.k.a.: rechargeable lithium, lithium polymer, LIPO, secondary lithium).
-Passengers may carry consumer-sized lithium ion batteries [no more than 8 grams of equivalent lithium content or 100 watt hours (wh) per battery]. This size covers AA, AAA, 9-volt, cell phone, PDA, camera, camcorder, Gameboy, and standard laptop computer batteries.
-Passengers can also bring two (2) larger lithium ion batteries (more than 8 grams, up to 25 grams of equivalent lithium content per battery) in their carry-on. This size covers larger extended-life laptop batteries. Most consumer lithium ion batteries are below this size.

Anker's largest external battery is currently the Anker Pro 20000mAh (74 wh) which is lower than the above 100 wh limit.
Q7.  What can I do if I lose the provided accessories?
Please check to see if you have extras or contact us via email at support@ianker.com for help.
Q8.  Anker external batteries' compatibility
Anker external batteries are compatible with Android and Apple smartphones and tablets except Asus devices ( Apple connectors are not included, please use your devices original cable).
Q9.  Can it be charged and charge other devices at the same time?
Yes, this battery can simultaneously charge and discharge. However, constant pass-through charging may affect the battery’s lifespan
Q10.  Do I need to press the power button when charging other devices?
Yes.
Q11.  Can it charge multiple devices simultaneously?
It can charge two devices simultaneously.
Q12.  Can it charge the Samsung Tab?
No.
Q13.  Is it compatible with Asus tablets?
No.

The max output of the 1st Gen Pro2 is 19V/3A so it looks like it may be a little low to charge your notebook.

19V limited to 3A?
I see in the specs tha this maxes out at 3.5A, but it also says 19V/3A.  My laptop is 19V / 3.42A, will it work?Also why doesn't the new version go to 19V, and maxes out at 12V?

The max amperage output depends on which voltage setting you're using the Pro at, at 19V it's 3A.

We decided to reduce the power output but concentrate on improving other aspects of the battery, ie more USB ports, power indicator, smaller and more efficient.

Since the output of Sony battery goes directly into the laptop via a proprietary system we can't guarantee a performance comparison.

The Astro Pro would go in via the DC charging port so efficiency levels may be quite different.

If you need any further help then give our customer service guys a shout at support@ianker and they'll be able to answer any questions you have.

The max output of the 1st Gen Pro2 is 19V/3A so if this is higher than or equal to the Surface's original charger then it'll work fine.

The list of adapters and outputs that are supplied with the Pro2 are listed on this page as well as our Amazon listings.

You'll need to confirm that the projector's input requirement does not go above 19V/3A as well as this is the max output of the 1st Gen Pro2. If it doesn't then you should be good to go!

19.5V/6.67A is a fairly high input and unfortunately we don't have an external battery that is capable of supplying that kind of power at the moment.

We are always looking to develop more market leading products though so keep your eyes on our Facebook or Twitter pages for new releases.

Unfortunately your link doesn't point to a specific device.

The max output of the 1st Gen Pro 2 is 19V/3A though so it'll charge pretty much anything with a lower input than that.

The output size of the Pro2's DC cable is 5.5*2.1mm so you'll need an adapter to fit that. They should be available online.

If the Pro2 doesn't already have the adapter you need included then unfortunately we don't manufacture the tip you need.
