Anker 2nd Gen Astro Pro 15000mAh Triple-Port External Battery with PowerIQ™ Technology

78APIPADMNI2-02USA

Product Description

Tablet & phone compatibility? Universal max-speed charging? Power-packed & portable? The reinvented Astro Pro has it all.

Compatibility maximized.

Not all charging ports are created equal. Standard ports only communicate effectively with particular devices, like Apple OR Android, often limiting their recharge rate. But with PowerIQ™ technology, each port intelligently identifies your device to speak its unique charging language. So plug in any brand or model and enjoy compatibility that doesn’t limit your charging speed.

Up your power.

15000mAh of power keep you and your gear going, and going - and going. Add 700% more battery life to an iPhone, 400% to your large-capacity phone (like a Galaxy S4), or 100-200% to your tablet (depending on its battery capacity) - all away from an outlet. What's more, the added energy efficiency gives you 10% more usable power than the previous generation and many standard alternatives.

Brilliant display.

Interacting with the all-new aluminum-cased beauty couldn't be easier. The LCD simplifies everything - displaying the remaining power (with precision down to the percent), output, input and voltage selection.

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.

Yes, all Anker external batteries including the 2nd Gen Astro Pro 15000mAh external battery can legally and safely be taken on board airplanes. Here are the relevant requirements:

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 Pro2 20000mAh (74 wh) which is lower than the above 100 wh limit.
Q15.  What should I do if the 2nd Gen Astro Pro 15000mAh external battery can not be charged?

Solar Charging
Can I charge this device with a 12V - 26W solar panel?At present I use my solar panel to power a car-style 2.1A USB charger which in turn charges a 14KMah battery. However if the voltage changes (e.g. the sun is behind the clouds for a while) I have to re-insert the USB cable on the battery before charging resumes.Will this device trickle charge (take in any power it can get) or does it strictly require a constant 12V - 2A input?I'm sure the connector will fit and my solar panel is powerful enough.Best wishes

Smaller version coming soon?
Any chance we'll see a smaller (perhaps 6" x 3") version of the Anker 2nd Gen Astro Pro? Same thickness, features, screen etc as the existing ones, but in a size that would compliment Galaxy Note / Iphone 6 phablets. Would also be good to charge off USB instead of requiring a separate exterlan charger.

no 12v output
Hey Guys,My Astro Pro Series has worked fine for a couple of months on 12v, but now I can only get 9v and USB output.  Is there an internal reset to get 12 volts back?Please advise

The max output of this battery is 12V/1.5A.

You'll need to confirm if this is higher or equal to your laptop's original charger by checking it for the output in V/A.

If that's the case do I need to buy extra cable that will fit the dc coupler of the camera? The dc coupler of the G5 takes 1.75mm x 4.75mm dc plug.

Straight 12v power supply
I see that teh info says this external battery will talk intelligently to a device being charged such as a phone but I simply want to use it as a 12v supply power to some electronic instruments that do not have their own battery and are therefore not being charged. Can it be used to do that (power rather than charge) or will it be confused by not being able to identify the item being connected?

As long as there is a consistent power draw over 0.05A from the device that you're trying to power then it'll work no problem at all.

It is compatible with the LG G2. I don't know what the net weight would be for the package. I would assume about a pound

Unfortunately it isn't compatible wit the LG G2, the G2 has unusual charging technology and isn't compatible with a large number of chargers or external batteries.

Net weight is 13.6 ounces.

Can you charge via micro USB?
I've had the 15000mAh Astro E5 for a while now, and one of the things that's great is as well as charging from a wall plug, I can also charge from the fast charge port on my laptop or by using the USB charge hub to save on power outlets needed; is this possible with this version?

The 2nd Gen Astro Pros all come with their own AC charger as they're just too high capacity to be able to receive a charge from 5V chargers.

USB port max voltage
My device requires a 9VDC/3000mA and doesn't charge via USB, but rather the other type. Does the Anker product's USB port provide 9VDC, assuming I can find a USB to barrel(??) connector? I'm assuming the Anker's 9VDC/2A won't be powerful enough for my device

The 2nd Gen Pro will output the 9V DC power but it won't do the 3A.

Take a look at the 1st Gen Pro2 (max output 19V/3A), that'll be able to charge your device. You may need an adapter for the DC output cable though.

Since the device I want to charge is 9VDV, will the 12V min of the 1st Gen Pro2 damage my device?
