PowerCore Slim 5000 by Anker

I’m glad to have this added to my collection of Anker portable chargers. As an Ingress player you can never have too many.
The exterior of the PowerCore makes it feel like a high-end product. Mate finish on the back and a quality rubber on the front makes it stand out. It’s only a bit thicker that the iPhone 6 and they both fit nicely in your hand or pocket.

It comes in handy when you don’t have a backpack to carry a larger battery but still want the extra juice.
It holds the same amount of power as the Anker PowerCore 5000 but in a smaller and much nicer package.
I recharged my iPhone 6 twice from 20% to 100% and still had a bit of juice left.
The Power IQ technology charged the phone much faster than the usual charger though I didn’t measure the time.

Overall this feels like the best Anker product I’ve ever used and it will definitely be in my pocket from now on.
The PowerCore Slim 5000 comes in a nice tray-like box with an micro-USB cable and travel pouch.

Oh, and if you are thinking to give Pokemon GO a try, you will surely need the extra power from a portable charger to get you through the day.
