Anker, a creator of reliable, affordable technology accessories, has introduced its second generation Astro2 external battery, which is now available for purchase on Amazon. Pulling no punches, the Astro2 packs a high-capacity 9,000mAh battery which can charge two mobile devices simultaneously. This device is an essential back-up in this battery-reliant, multi-device world which now relies on constant connectivity.
The Astro2 is a new addition to the Second Gen Astro family as a compact version of the recently released three-port Astro3. While smaller, the second gen Astro2 features the same single “Smart Port” used on the Astro3. This “Smart Port” identifies the type of device plugged in, and then adjusts to deliver the fastest charge speed possible. Neither restricted nor specific to just Apple or Android devices, the Smart Port is flexible, delivering full-speed fast charges to multiple devices.
Featuring a highly efficient energy rate, (10 percent better than other external batteries) the Astro2 can deliver up to an extra full charge for your smartphone. The second port offers the maximum charging speed available for Android phones, and is also universally compatible for both iDevices and other 5V USB-charging devices.
The minimalist matte black Astro2 presents an ultra-low power consumption Smart LED display which clearly indicates the available power level. Both smooth & button free, simply give the Astro2 a quick shake to activate the battery and LED power indicator. For the Astro 2, design, functionality and accuracy all come together to make the second gen Astro2 a welcomed companion to your mobile devices, offering a necessary boost whenever & wherever needed.
“Even with our Astro line of external batteries established as the top-selling external battery brand on Amazon, we continue to evolve and improve our product line by sticking to the basics of listening closely to our customers,” said Steven Yang, Anker Founder and Chairman. “We know people have different power needs but the same high standards for quality and design, and this Astro2 offers the same innovative design of our newest Astro3 but in a more compact package. For those who desire even greater portability, never fear – we have an even smaller addition coming for you in the near future.”
