OneHandUnboxing: Anker Astro3 10,000mAh portable charger #Accessories (recorded on Nokia Lumia 920)

| May 7, 2013 | 10 Replies


Hey guys, this is a quick look at a couple of things that arrived in the post today that I picked up at Amazon. They’re both portable chargers, one is the trusty Nokia DC-16 charging stick. I’ve already got one and loved it so much (fast charging is ACE) that I’ve got another.

The one I’ve unboxed is the Anker Astro3 10,000mAh portable charger. I’ve never heard of it until now, it was just something I stumbled across when looking for another DC-16 and I thought it might be worth a try. Always useful when travelling to have a portable charger with me (useful when swapping batteries either isn’t possible or is inconvenient – e.g. whilst filming a video or using it as a hotspot. You kinda don’t want to turn the device off). As an example, I’ll be bringing this to London next week :).

Amazon Link: I picked this up for £26.99 Anker® Astro3E Mobile Battery Pack 10000mAh External Battery Pack High Capacity Power Bank Charger (Dual 5V 3A USB Output)

This is the biggest capacity portable charger I’ve owned so far (you might have seen my other ones from Proporta, the 3,500 packs in white/black, the mini charging one and the tiny one that fits into a wallet). For 10,000mAh it’s much smaller than I expected (though larger than the ones I’ve previously owned).

It has two USB ports, and is charged through a MicroUSB port. With two USB ports, you can charge two different devices at the same time.

It’s supplied with a coiled old phone style cable which has exchangeable heads (microUSB, miniUSB, old iThangs and old Nokia pin chargers).

You also get a padded mesh carrier pack.

There are some pictures below and a one handed, handheld (no tripod) unboxing filmed on the Nokia Lumia 920.

    Hey Jay,
    How’s the charging speed? like how much time does it take for a full charge for 920?
    Please do let me know, planning to get one for myself.

    • I’ll find out for you. The DC-16 charges back up super fast. Prob within the hour from flat, 20-30 minutes from half charge.

      I’ll see how the Anker 10,000mah one does for you. 🙂

      • I’m constantly surprised how fast the Dc16 charges up my 920, only wish it was slightly larger in capacity

        That’s really fast!
        and that would be really helpful, thanks!

    To charge the new gen Lumia’s quickly, just use a charger that has an output of atleast 1.3A. The new proporta 7k mAh charges at 2.1A…
