The five port charger is great value imho and essential in the modern home.

Won't affect many people, I know, but just for information: the PowerIQ™ smart ports on this charger need a minimum demand from the device before they power up. So a Pebble watch can't be charged by this charger -- the Pebble doesn't draw enough to kickstart the port.

That said, I have this charger and it's excellent.

Edit: dodgyd reports that his Pebble charges with this charger. See comments 18 & 19.

Anyone know if you can charge a nook hd on Anker 2nd gen astro E5 with power IQ

5 port charger is cracking - I have a 2nd Gen Astro3 which I wouldn't recommend, so no idea if the 5 would be a good option for someone like myself.

Excellent deals anyway

you'd need to get a USB to Nook cable - both the charger and Astros come only with usb to micro usb as standard

EDIT - or does the nook come with one anyway?! - just don't own a Nook so don't know!!

Tnx OP

These are great chargers, and save on lots of chargers hanging around the house and the service from Anker is exceptional.

Heat added at this price

Hi yes the cable comes with it but the problem seems it doesnt matter what travel charger i seen so far wont charge the nook i got an anker charger but it hasnt got the power IQ and after speaking to anker they reckon that is what makes the difference and so it will charge it.

Good to hear - as others have commented, Anker make really good quality and reliable products + excellent customer service.

Like OP, I have umpteen Anker things myself - charger, battery, tablet case, bluetooth speaker

Really pleased with mine

Great chargers. Have 3 of them. Very handy indeed.

Customer service is excellent. Sets Anker apart from the rest.

Don't need another one, but thanks for sharing OP

Thanks, just ordered my third a anker charger, first 2 have been "borrowed" by family members.

was waiting for the price to come down a bit (nearly bought the 25W version a few times.)

With some vouchers I had got it for the pricely sum of 99p. Bargain.

Nice work, heat added

Thanks OP been eyeing this up for a while and was hoping it may be a Black Friday deal but with the coupon I have taken the bait.

hi does it have on/off button . or just leave on ?
thx

As a pebble owner, that is very helpful. Thank you (although with 5 days battery life it hopefully won't be needed for that purpose!)

Neither charger nor External battery (remembering there are 2 completely different items here) have on/off buttons. They commence charging the 'client' device(s) once attached. They claim not to overcharge once a device's battery is full.

Personally, I never remember to unplug my 5 port charger from the mains......doesn't seem to do it any harm. I have a different version of the external battery if it is that you are interested -in.....on my external battery it closes down itself once full charge is achieved by the battery.

I'm a Pebble owner and I have the exact same PowerIQ charger right here and it's the only way I charge my Pebble. No problems at all.

Hm. That's weird. Perhaps it's only some of them, then? My Pebble is V2R2 hardware, with v2.8 firmware.
Edited by: "sylv" 26th Nov 2014

From previous deal threads on these IQ chargers , others have mentioned they consume zero (or as close to zero as can be measured) electricity when left plugged into the mains but with no devices connected. So they can be happily left plugged in at all times. Hope that helps.

I have the 25w one which has 2 iq ports. Its brilliant

Thanks Op. Heat.

This item I've never considered having before. But on the strength of all these positive reviews ive taken the plunge....

If anyone has a nook hd let me know cheers if you have a portable charger that charges it

Is there much difference in the 25w and 40w cause both got five star reviews?

Had to swap mine as some ports stopped charging all of a sudden; common fault apparently, customer services were ok and I didn't need to return the faulty one. The new one has been ok so far.

Same here.

Had a problem with mine making a high pitched noise when charging some phones. Got in touch with their customer service and they were pretty quick to send out another one.

Still gets a high pitched noise every now and again when I charge some phone though. HTC One M7 was one I had problem with on both chargers for example...

Unless I'm mistaken most of the reports of high pitched noise were only from the 25w version?

One of the main benefits I believe of the 40w version over the 25w is that any of the five ports can be used at the higher charge rate of upto 2.4A for items such as iPads, whereas on the 25w I think it's only the top two ports that can supply both 1.5A & 2.4A. Hope I've got those figures correct? Hope that helps those wonder whether to buy this or the 25w version.

I've got the 40W. Works great for charging the family devices. No longer are my walls plastered with cables hanging out of every socket. With the Anker I now have a USB octopus that lives next to my cabinet.

Both of mine charge my pebble no problem. These things are so useful, heat added.

Good price for the E5, it is higher capacity but physically same size as the E4 13000mAh. For those who need more, new models E6 (20800mAh) and E7 (25600mAh) were released earlier this week but not yet available in UK. These are same size but slightly bigger than the E5 and E6.

Missed this last time, bought 2 this time. Thank OP+heat

I have the white version of this (40W), and it charges my Nook HD+ no problem, or did you mean a portable battery?

+1 for Anker's excellent customer service - one of the ports stopped charging on my first unit, and they quickly replaced it with no fuss (and let me keep the original).

I have a Nook HD 7" and can confirm that the 'normal' 25W version of this charger will charge it (using the USB to proprietory Nook connector, obviously).

ahh. But the 13000mAh (E4) battery will not charge the Nook.
Edited by: "morfeus" 26th Nov 2014

@neiljw

Should be. Used it twice last time there was a code when placing two separate orders.

Think I misread your question but according to OP's initial post it does suggest the discount code will give 20% off both charger plus power bank.
