How many times have you left home only to find out that your smartphone was almost out of battery? Well i don't know about you all but it has happened to me more than once and although i remember a time when we didn't have cellular phones (and not a care in the world) now these little devices have become part of our daily lives (for good or bad) and so most of us can't afford to have them run out of battery while on the road. That's also the main reason as to why i started testing battery packs (external batteries) a while back and i have to say that they have saved me from lots of trouble. Today's review is about one such device and more specifically the Slimtalk 3200mAh External Battery by Anker.
Anker is one of the world's premiere suppliers of environmentally friendly portable energy solutions for consumer electronics, including chargers/power packs, rechargeable batteries and other accessories. Our success is based on the three core values we live and work by every day: top quality, excellent service and affordable prices. High performance is top priority at Anker, whether the criteria is longevity, durability, safety or user friendliness...or all of the above. Our products are made with only the best quality components and production methods, and are tested continuously to make sure that quality is being maintained. Anker is deeply committed to providing each and every customer with the finest support and service, and backs it up with a 100% money back guarantee plus free online tech consulting. What's more, every Anker product comes with an 18-month hassle-free warranty. We believe there's no reason a customer should have to pay an exorbitant price for top quality, or give up quality and service to get an inexpensive price. We employ a variety of strategies, both in the front office and on the manufacturing floor, to bring our customers the best of both worlds: great quality and a great price. As a result, Anker has now served over 1 million happy customers around the globe.
The Anker Slimtalk External Battery features a 3200mAh lithium-ion battery that can be recharged 500 times over and should be sufficient to fully recharge most smartphones up to 3 times. What really makes the Slimtalk unique however is the built-in micro-USB cable which allows you to charge most devices without carrying an extra cable around and the built-in flashlight which we all know can come in handy in numerous occasions. Of course a battery capacity of 3200mAh is not much and certainly not the highest out there since there are battery packs out there with capacities up to 4 times over but even so for most people 3200mAh should be more than enough. Time however to place it under our magnifying glass and see what the Slimtalk external battery has to offer.
