The Premium High-Capacity Portable Charger
From ANKER, America's Leading USB Charging Brand
Faster and safer charging with our advanced technology
10 million+ happy users and counting
We integrate our smart-charging PowerIQ and current-stabilizing VoltageBoost technologies to get the fastest possible charge up to 2.4A per port (3A with USB-C).
With a capacity of 20100mAh, PowerCore+ can charge a typical phone 7 times without itself needing a recharge.
Despite its massive capacity, PowerCore+ can be fully recharged in 8 hours by a 2.4A charger and the included USB to USB-C cable. That's 20% faster than a typical charger of similar capacity.
PowerCore 20100 is one of the first portable chargers to utilize USB-C input and output. A reversible, high-power connection that recharges the 2015 MacBook and other USB-C devices up to 5V/3A.
For Optimal Use:
- Press the LED Power Wheel before connecting your device to activate USB-C output.
- Disconnect your USB-C device once it is fully charged. This will prevent the device from returning charge to PowerCore.
-Use the included cable, your original cable or a third-party-certified one (such as MFi).

- What's the output efficiency of the PowerCore+ 20100 Portable Charger?
- Approximately 30-40% of the Astro's battery capacity is unable to be used because of efficiency problems that affect all electronics devices. These include power lost from circuit heat and voltage conversions from the battery, the charging cable and your device. Your battery is able to supply 60%-70% power to other devices.
- Can the PowerCore+ 20100 Portable Charger charge other devices while it is being charged?
- No. It's actually very bad for the battery lifespan to allow this.

- When the PowerCore+ 20100 is charging a high-capacity device (such as the iPhone6, iPhone6 Plus , iPhone6S ,iPhone6 Plus, Nexus 6, BlackBerry 10 and iPad etc), the LED indicators will not turn off automatically. This is because when such devices are fully charged, their output current is higher than the minimum current(30-70mA) that can be detected by Anker batteries. Please rest assured there will be no harm done to your device and that it is not drawing a current.
When the PowerCore+ 20100 is being charged, the remaining power of the LED indicators will light steadily; while the next charging LED indicator will flash. And they will turn off when the PowerCore+ 20100 is fully charged.
- How long will the charge in a PowerCore+ 20100 Portable Charger last without being used?
- Generally, our external batteries' static power consumption is so low it would take between 20 and 36 months to drain completely.

To extend your powercore's life, please discharge and recharge it at least once every 4 months.

- Can the PowerCore+ 20100 Portable Charger be taken on board airplanes?
Yes, all external batteries with a capacity lower than 27027mAh (100 Watt Hours) can legally and safely be taken on board airplanes according to Federal transportation security rules:
In March 2017, the governments of the United States and the United Kindom issued orders restricting a variety of different electronics from carry-on baggage when traveling to the USA and UK. The ban is likely to result in difficulties carrying portable chargers from major airports in Africa and the Middle East (with more airports expecting restrictions soon). Therefore, we strongly recommend that you confirm with your airline or airport before traveling with portable chargers to ensure problem-free flying.
