Charges the iPhone 6 times and large-capacity phones like the Galaxy S4 almost 4 times with the industry's highest combined charge output of 4A among three charging ports. One Smart Port (5V / 2.4A max) offers truly maximum speed charges to ANY device, including the iPad or even the Samsung Galaxy Tab. 2 additional ports charge Android smartphones at full speed.

High energy efficiency rate, 10% above previous generation Astros and many current standard alternatives, gives you up to an extra full charge for your smartphone. Sturdy construction and matte finish withstands bumps and drops. Grade A cells and premium chips ensure reliability.

A "shake" starts a charge or displays the remaining power level. The ultra-low power consumption (100, 000 shakes consumes less than 1%) Smart LED display, designed with 10 LEDs, balances accuracy and aesthetics.

Input: 5V / 1.5A; Use a 1.5A adapter (not included) with the included USB cable for fastest charging time (9 hours).

Package contents: Anker 2nd Generation Astro3 External Battery, Micro USB cable, travel pouch, instruction manual.

Junk

All of these so called Power Banks will only damage your expensive device battery. You ask how?
Well after using these for a while(a week or so), your device battery will never be the same. It will not hold the juice as it should and will be depleted much faster. Just use the old fashion electric outlet.

Please explain further. I'm looking for something like this for weekend camping trips where and when I'll be away from electrical outlets.

Is the issue just with charging at high currents to force a rapid charge or is it that these shouldn't be used at all?

I can not exactly back up why what dabir has stated.  I can state that I bought a pair of =16px2600Mah Flash Chargers back in November of 2013 and had to use them finally around Valentine's Day for an all day event.  I tried it out a couple of days earlier, to make sure they worked.  Re-charged them and then when V-Day arrived, I again used them on my cellphone.  At that time, my extended battery for the phone was going easily 10 hours on moderate usage (email/Facebook/minor apps) and still having decent charge when I'd get home at night.  After using the Flash Chargers, I've noticed my phone draining a great deal faster.  Why?  I honestly can't explain it, but I do know it was directly linked to using those chargers for a short period.  I made sure that those would be compatible with my cellphone before I bought them.  (Note: All chargers will not work with all electronics, as some have noted that the voltage can be different.  One good example is that the chargers I bought would not be compatible with my Nexus7 tablet.)

Has anyone figured out why?

As far as those who really want them, my advice is this...if you want it, get it.  But use them sparingly.  I think they are nifty things, but I also think the tech is just not 100% there yet.  Good luck to those who venture on.

  Anker's stuff is top-notch.  Especially their new IQ stuff (which it looks like these might have gotten an upgrade for).  Charges at the same rate as wall plugs - no difference.  I have about 5 different anker chargers, 4 ipads, and 2 iphones, and a few random android devices. never any issues.  As far as the other junk, yes, watch out.  Especially anything that promises 'flash charging', etc. - I had one of those quadfire chargers actually spark and burn.

I have the Anker and love it, but my current favorite is this guy...currently a few bucks cheaper on Amazon. Really helps to keep the tablets going on 10+ hour flights to Europe. What I like about this model is that it is longer and thinner...doesn't look like you're carrying around a little brick. Almost looks like a phone (the silver one anyways). http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EU80CZ6/ref=wms_ohs_produc...
