This review is from: Anker PowerCore+ Mini, 3350mAh Lipstick-Sized Portable Charger (3rd Generation, Premium Aluminum Power Bank), One of The Most Compact External Batteries (Wireless Phone Accessory) Friends, We are gathered here today to celebrate the life of our Anker PowerCore+. We received it in December with such joy however, it passed away by June. Our Anker was there every time our iPhone’s battery indicator hit below 10%. It was always there, ready to charge. For those seven months, it was one of the best friends a guy could ever have. And boy, did it charge until that fateful day during the last week in June. I noticed my phone was near dead and so I hooked up my trusty Anker and went about my day. When I looked at my phone about an hour later, I noticed it wasn’t charging. I thought that maybe it was the cable. It had to have been the cable. Please be the cable! So, I switched it out but it wasn’t. The Anker had no response… and neither did I. #sadface Anker is survived by his older brother (also a PowerCore+), who was purchased in September and is still going strong. We will probably purchase another one because, you know… $10 bucks. So what, right? Three stars because of battery life otherwise, four. UPDATE: Anker contacted me and replaced the PowerCore by sending me a new one. Added one star for customer service awesomeness.
