Anker 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh External Battery with PowerIQ™ Technology

78APIPADMNI2-02USA

Product Description

The next generation Astro E3. Refined to power the mobile, connected life even better.

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.

Grab-n-go ready.

With the importance of staying connected ever increasing, eliminate low-battery fear with the grab-n-go Astro E3. Power your iPhone 4+ times, a large-capacity phone like the Galaxy S4 more than twice, or a tablet once (depending on your model).

Simple, reliable power.

Designed to be functional and efficient - nothing else. At 0.59in thin, the E3 comes ready to serve as an unobtrusive, lightweight solution to your daily power needs. And, increasing the new Astro E3's recharge rate from 1.5A to 2A, we've reduced the recharge time 25% to just 6 hours (with a 2A adapter).

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.

Q7.  What's the output efficiency of the 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh external battery?
The efficiency of this battery is around 70%-80%. The internal circuit board is 92% efficient, accounting for power lost through circuit heat and voltage conversion, which is up to 5% above the industry average. Energy is also lost within the charging cable and the device being charged (approximately 15-20%). Additionally, the efficiency can be affected by the cable length and the age of the device being charged.
Q8.  Can the 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh external battery charge other devices while it is being charged?

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, please discharge and recharge it at least once every 4 months.
Q14.  Can the 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh external battery be used for international travel?
Yes. Please be sure that the USB AC adapter is compatible with the voltage of the country you're travelling to. The input voltage of an adapter is usually labeled on the adapter.

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.
Q16.  What should I do if the 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh external battery can not be charged?
Please try a different AC adapter and Micro USB cable to see if that helps. Email us at support@ianker.com during your 18-month warranty period if this doesn't fix the issue.
Q17.  What should I do if the 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh external battery can not charge other devices?
Please try a different charging cable between the Astro and your device. Email us at support@ianker.com during your 18-month warranty period if this doesn't fix the issue.

Wire Gauge in Supplied Cable
Hi, I just bought one of these for my wife's tablet (I've had a first gen E3 for a year and it's still going strong). Can you tell me what the wire gauge(s) are in the USB cable you provide?  Is it 28/24 AWG, or something less (i.e. thinner)? I'd like to make sure I can charge my phone at its fast rate if needed, but that requires at least a 24 AWG cable. Thanks

The battery output won't exceed the cable's ability.What device does she have?

She's got a Dell Venue 7 (Android) tablet, but I'm thinking about charging my phone off it, and in order to have it charge at its fastest I need a cable that's at least 24AWG on the charge side. I've used thinner cables with my 1st gen E3 and seen a big different in charge rate. I'm ust trying to figure out if I need to get another cable to keep with her E3 or if we can use the same one.

Her tablet will pull 10W or 2A from the battery leaving you with 1A left for your phone. Stock cables will work, both from the phone and the one that comes with this should do just fine. Personally, I buy spares to I don't have to carry that cable with for the different devices and Anker's or Amazon cables are of great quality & durability.If you phone needs more than 1A, with the two devices plugged in, they both won't charge at full speed obviously.

Please make sure that the charger you're using can output at least 5V/1.5A. If it isn't that powerful then the Astro may charge slowly or not at all.

Anker Recharging Issues/Questions
Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my post. I just bought this product and had concerns with recharging the power bank. I plug in the power bank to charge overnight (12 hours) and it tends to stay at the same circle power range or only rises to the next power circle (25% more). How do I get the optimal charging conditions? Im using the usb/micro usb cable the anker came with and a usb wall adapter. And when I plug in the power bank does the circle need to keep blinking to signify its charging? Or does it only need to blink 3 times then stop? Im afraid my device's recharging capabilities are slow or defective. Thank you.

The leds will blink indicating the charging process. See if you can find another AC adapter preferably a 2A one for fastest charging.

Please make sure that the wall charger you're using can output at least 5V/1.5A, if it can't then you may find the Astro charges slowly or never reaches 100%.

What's the Difference ?
Can you please tell me the difference between Anker 2nd Gen Astro2 9000mAh External Battery Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology and Anker 2nd Gen Astro E3 10000mAh External Battery with PowerIQ™ Technology? I'm aware of 1000mAh battery difference. Thank you !!

The main difference really is the form factor, size and weight and the Astro2 can output a total of 3.5A rather than the E3's 3.0A.

You'll need to make sure you're using a charger that can output 5V/1.5A to get the Astro charging.

The LEDs will all switch off when the Astro is successfully fully charged.
