[NEW] Anker® Astro Slim2 4500mAh Ultra Slim Portable Power Bank Backup External Battery Charger with Hideaway Micro-USB for Android, USB Port for iPhones and other devices (Lightning Adapter for iPhone 5 not included)[Dual 5V 1A Output]

Our goal was simple: design a powerful battery that stacks up — literally.

Slimmer and stronger
At 10mm, Anker’s Astro Slim2 comes with enough power for 2-3 charges on most smartphones in a compact, easy-to-grip case. Stack it behind your device and enjoy instant, uninterrupted use. An LED column on the front of the battery lets you know just how much juice is left without diverting attention from your work. Our goal was to make the Slim2 seem as if it wasn’t even there.

Say goodbye to knots
Who doesn’t hate tangled cables? With an intuitively-sized micro USB cord for Android, the Slim2 allows you to carry your power all-in-one. We haven’t forgotten about Apple users, though: a USB port makes it possible for iPhones to charge via OEM wires. Free yourself from cords and get back to what’s most important: life.

No expense to speed
What’s better than a high-capacity battery that slides into your pocket on-the-go? One capable of providing your devices with simultaneous, full-speed charges. Both ports supply 1A of power with complete safety to your phones, so you can get back to a full bar in no time and make the most of your day.

    Beautifully styled, light weight and powerful battery pack that is ideal for smart phones! This is a beautiful product for anyone who travels or works long days. You can charge your smart phone while on the bus, train, and plane or in a meeting without looking for one of those hard to find wall plugs. This powerful battery pack can charge your smart phone multiple times or extend the use of your smart tablet. (Please see the details listed below in my test results)It is beautifully designed, extremely thin, small and portable. It uses Grade A power cells which will provide years of recharging capability, up to 500 plus times. The battery pack has the power storage of 4500 mAh. It has a standard USB port and a built in Micro USB cable that can both output 5VDC at 1 AMP each, simultaneously. It can charge two devices at the same time. My testing reveals that this battery pack is powerful and effective with the capability of outputting 3700 mAh of its charging capacity which is 82.2 percent of its rated capacity which is an excellent result.What I like is that the unit is priced well and it is so small and portable but can really carry a lot of power. It easily fits into your purse, briefcase or pocket. Since it is only 0.42 inches thick it can easily slip into a jacket pocket for easy access. You could recharge most smart phones from 2 to 3 times with this power cell. The battery pack is about the same size as an iPhone 4. It weighs in at 4 1/8 ounces and it has a matte finish that helps you to grip it and it does not show fingerprints. I have included a video of this review and I hope it is helpful to you.Anker® Astro Slim2 included accessories:*12 inch charging cable with USB on one end and Micro USB on the other*Apple 30 pin to Micro USB adapter*Mini USB to Micro USB adapter*Instruction manual*18 month warranty*Built in 3.2 inch long Micro USB cable that is built into and stores on the battery packAnker® Astro Slim2 4500mAh features:* There are two power outputs and one is a USB port and it is rated at 5 VDC at 1.0 Amp and the other is a built-in Micro USB cable that is 3.2 inches long and rated at 5 VDC at 1 Amp.* You can charge two devices at the same time.* The battery pack has an automatic on feature to start the charging process for your device and it will automatically shut off when your device is fully charged.

    Finally A Portable Battery With Built-In Cable I think Anker finally hit the sweet spot in portable USB batteries with the Astro Slim2, and I’ve used my share of them. Of course, as an ultra-slim battery with just 4500mAh, this isn’t going to charge your tablet or jump start your car. What it will do, though, is give your precious cellphone that extra kick when you’re just about to beat that Angry Bird level and your battery is down to its last breath. It will do it in style, too.The Anker Slim2 is about the size of your typical new-gen cellphone; it is nearly identical in size and thickness to my Google LG Nexus 4. This means that it is just the perfect size to slip into the inside pocket of a suit or jean pocket. I can’t mention how many times I’ve had to leave my other portable batteries behind because they were just too bulky or awkwardly shaped, rendering them completely useless when I needed them most. There’s no need for a second thought with the Slim2; just slip it into a pocket and go. Forgot to bring a cable? No sweat; IT COMES WITH A BUILT-IN CABLE.Did I mention that it comes with a built-in cable?!Sorry for those in the proprietary cable camp (I’m looking at your, Apple), the built-in cable is Micro-USB only. Which means that, oh I don’t know, it will work with JUST ABOUT ANY Android cellphone in the market. When not in use, the cable tucks neatly into the battery charging port. If your device doesn’t have a Micro-USB charging port, Anker showed some love by including a USB output port as well so you can BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Cable). Anker threw in a Mini-USB and a 30-pin iPhone adapter too, just for kicks. Furthermore, the Slim2 has a 4-LED display that tells you how much battery is left so you’re never left wondering.This all sounds amazing, so you might be wondering why the 4-star. Well, I’m picky. There are 2 short-comings with the Slim2:1) The unit comes with a charging USB cable but no USB-to-A/C adapter. I know, I know, all the cool kids are doing it and leaving the adapter out, but it just feels a bit incomplete without one. It isn’t really a huge deal as I usually have a laptop around, but I have found myself hunting around the house for a place to charge it once in a while. You know what would be cool? If Anker figured out how to include a built-in A/C prongs or USB charging plug (one can dream, right?)2) The Slim2 doesn’t have a built-in LED flashlight. I know you’re looking at me like I’m crazy now, but if you’ve ever used any of the other Anker portable batteries before, you would know how ingenious that LED light is when Anker first introduced it. It is icing on the cake, to be sure, but the flashlight function really comes in handy, especially when you’re carrying the battery around anyway. I guess you can always use the flashlight mode on your now fully charged cellphone, but where’s the fun in that?As I get older, my reviews tend to get longer so I’m sure you’ve pretty much just scrolled to the end here without reading the rest. Well, this is my summary; buy the Anker Slim2. You’ll love it and take it with you everywhere. Your cellphone will thank you.
