Anker 2nd Gen Astro E4 Black 13000 mAh External Battery with PowerIQ Technology 79AN13K2-BA
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Size easy to pack. Good solid weight. Includes a flashlight.

Cons: I charged this up and tested it with my Samsung S4, and it seemed to work pretty well. So, I topped it off again and took it on a camping trip. Oops. This time, I believe it managed to get my phone up to 80% or so the first day, but was already down to two LEDs. Further attempts to charge my phone were unsuccessful. Back home later, it would take a full charge, but could then no longer properly charge my phone.

Other Thoughts: The listing does not indicate what cells it contains, otherwise I'd be inclined to crack it open, and if the cells were not what was claimed, return it insisting on a replacement with an alternate brand that meets spec; looks like I'm out what I paid. I own several products of this type, and all the others (Rav___ and Fr___) have worked reliably, so this brand will go to my personal "Do Not Buy" list. The other lesson here is, ALWAYS TEST YOUR GEAR, especially if you may need to rely on it in a more serious situation.

FREMO P100 Plus 10400 mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Samsung Galaxy S6, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One (M9), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of power; has charged my Samsung S4 for days so far. Confidence-inspiring weight. Begins charging immediately when connected (their 5200mAH unit does not). Sturdy aluminum case

Cons: Does not include a flashlight. Shape is a little awkward for a pocket

Other Thoughts: Four eggs because I'm still testing, and can't speak to product longevity; and since some similar products have a flashlight, this one deserves a lower rating for not having one.
Apparently contains 10400 mAH of 3.7V cells. That's on the label, so not hidden, but since there are losses when that 3.7V is raised to 5.1V for the output, actual capacity may seem lower. This is basic electronics, not why there's one less egg.
As many days as this has kept my phone charged, I expect it will indeed take hours to charge. A typical phone charger outputs 1A; that's a ten-hour charge time from "empty," before accounting for reasonable losses; a 13 hour charge time would not be unreasonable. A PC's USB 2.0 port outputs 500mA, so double it.
I anticipate buying more of these for friends.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Allowed me to easily OC an X4 5350 to 2.4GHz; this RAM went right along with it (a set of DDR3-1866 could only let the APU hit 2.3GHz). Does not require inordinate voltage. Good price.

Cons: None found.

Other Thoughts: As usual, G.Skill has provided some excellent RAM. For the money, I got the kind of results I wanted. I'm going to put this in a Haswell system long term, but its performance with the little Athlon (on AM1H-ITX) demonstrated it can do what I want.
