Anker’ Astro2 External Battery Released

The dual-port second gen Astro2 now includes a Smart Port that delivers maximum speed charges to any device

Anker, creator of reliable, affordable technology accessories and support devices, introduces the second generation Astro2 external battery, now available at Amazon.com. At $44.99, the Astro2 packs a high-capacity 9,000mAh battery that can charge two mobile devices simultaneously for an essential back-up in this battery-reliant multi-device world. The Astro2 joins the second gen Astro family as a compact addition to the recently released three-port Astro3. Similarly, the second generation Astro2 features the same single Smart Port that identifies the type of device that is plugged in and then adjusts to deliver its fastest charge speed. Not restricted solely to Apple or Android, this single Smart Port offers flexibility to deliver full-speed, fast charges to both iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The Astro2’s capacity charges most smartphones four to five times with a 3A charge output available between the two charging ports. Its high energy efficiency rate, 10 percent better than other external batteries, gives the Astro2 the ability to deliver up to an extra full charge for your smartphone, lasting longer between charges as the clear choice when shopping for a backup portable power supply. With the ability to plug in two devices, you can charge your phone and power up your friend or family member’s device at the same time. The second port offers maximum speed charging for Android phones and is also universally compatible with iPhones and other 5V USB-charging devices.

For those who desire even greater portability, never fear – we have an even smaller addition coming for you in the near future.”
