    It does exactly what it says it does so make sure you understand the output for each port., September 1, 2013

    First the charger works great and does exactly what it states it does.

    If you don’t properly understand what each port allows in amperage you might think it’s misleading when you plug the wrong device in the wrong port. The ports are labeled as for specific devices which they are not and are only indicative of the amps they put out. The instructions and back of the device clearly label what each port will do for you in terms of amps they will put out. The ports go as such

    iPad 2.1 Amps – This is the highest output.
    Samsung Tab 1.3 Amps – This is the second highest output.
    iPad 2.1 Amps – Again the highest output.
    iPhone 1 Amp – Lowest but common for most phones.
    Android 1 AMP – Same as iPhone

    It is important to understand what your device requires, for instance my note 2 can charge at 2 amps so the iPad port at 2.1 Amps is perfect. Because of how Amps work I do not need to worry about putting too much into my phone. When my phone request 2 Amps that is exactly what it gets, now if I plugged it into say the Android port at 1 Amp that is all I would get. Charging time would also be doubled since I am only giving my phone half of what it can use.

    Also with this charger being rated at only 5 Amps max you can not plug into all 5 ports unless you are using devices all at 1 Amp. 2 iPads would put you at 4.2 so anything else would bring it over 5 Amps. If you used 1 iPad or device pulling over 2 Amps you could get 3 to 4 ports depending on Amps required.

    Android Device users – PAY ATTENTION !, December 30, 2013

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I don’t normally write a lot of reviews but felt this one was needed to clear up some details for those of us who are heavy android users (I have 5+ devices in my house).

    First, as others have said it does exactly what it says it does… it charges the SPECIFIED devices at the maximum listed rates for each port up to 5 amps total.

    THE PROBLEM: OTHER devices may be limited on each port to 0.5 amps.

    Personally, I think the description from Anker should be clearer. The only indications are in the manual’s “FAQ” that comes with it which does say that your device “may charge slower” in a different port and over at Anker’s site where they VERY vaguely talk about the difference between Apple/Android ports. See […]

    Port 1)
    2.1 amps: iPad (50K ohm b/w data pins)
    (An Android device may only get 0.5A “Charging USB” )

    Port 2)
    1.3 amps: Samsung Tab (0 ohm b/w data pins)
    (Dedicated for an Android device which should get 1.3A “Charging AC” )

    Port 3)
    2.1 amps: iPad (50K ohm b/w data pins)
    (An Android device may only get 0.5A “Charging USB” )

    Port 4)
    1.0 amps: iPhone (50K ohm b/w data pins)
    (An Android device may only get 0.5A “Charging USB” )

    Port 5)
    1.0 amps: Android – (0 ohm b/w data pins)
    (Dedicated for an Android device which should get 1.0A “Charging AC” )

    See my spreadsheet about different devices in the different states on gDrive at.. […]

    LAYMAN’S EXPLANATION:
    – If you plug ANY android device into a charger/port designed for an “Apple” product, that port may only charge the android device at a measly 0.5 amps (500ma) “USB Charging” vs. a charger/port designed for an “Android” product at max charge rate for the port/device (ie 1.0+ amps) “AC Charging”.
    See SETTINGS – BATTERY (or SETTINGS – ABOUT PHONE – STATUS – BATTERY) to verify for yourself while plugged in with a stock device/kernel.

    ANDROID DEVICE SUMMARY:
    – You are only guaranteed 2 full speed charging ports of 1.3A max and 1.0A max. The other 3 “apple” ports may be limited to 0.5A max for android devices (full charge rate for Apple or devices designed for Apple chargers).

    TECHNICAL EXPLANATION:
    – There are 4 pins on a typical USB charger: +5v, DC Return, and the two data pins D+ and D- .

    Android devices have 2 (6/16/14 Edit: 3 States) charging states:
    1) “AC Charging” (i.e. your typical android wall charger, sometimes called “Fast Charge”)
    Data pins are directly shorted together in the charger to tell the device what it should do. No data communication is possible to the device. It will charge at the maximum rate of either the charger or device, whichever is lower.

    2) “USB Charging” (i.e. plugged into your pc’s port)
    Data pins are NOT shorted (‘open’) and data communication is still possible with the device.

    6/16/14 Edit: 3) “Charging Wireless” (i.e. Nexus 5 on ‘Qi’ charger)

    Apple iPad/iPod/iPhone devices:
    I don’t own any, but I have picked up a few “Apple Compatible” chargers here or there and can say the following.
    1) The data pins are either NOT shorted or have a “specific” high value resistor, i.e. 50k ohm (appears as an “open”) across the data pins in the charger.
    This makes an apple charge port “appear” as “USB Charging” to many android devices and therefore the android device limits its charging to the typical maximum of 500ma/0.5a allowed by a pc’s USB port.

    NOTE:
    Fast Charge (AC) can be software enabled by some apps (requires root access) or at the “kernel” level by manufacturer or a modified “community” kernel (i.e. XDA-developers.com).

    See more background at […]
    (XDA-Developers Search for… Ramjet73 ‘s thread “[Tips and Tricks] OTG (USB Host Support) – Requires kernel support”, you will see my posts as “mpgrimm2” )

    1/31/14 EDIT:
    Anker apparently figured out their mistake with the above 5Amp charger not being as “universal” as everyone was led to believe and have a NEWER 5 Port 8amp “SMART” Charger that appears to remedy most of these issues. If only I had not wasted money on the 5Amp version.

    Anker® 40W 5V / 8A 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop/Travel USB Charger with 5-Foot Power Cord for iPad, iPhone, Samsung Tab, Android Devices and Virtually All USB-Charged Devices

    Five Banger Confirmed: iPad 3 + Nexus 7 + W8 Phone + Samsung S4 + iPhone 5, September 14, 2013
    By 
    Robert Salita “Software Developer” (CHI PAR PHX SYD PDX CLD NKC) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I can confirm that the five port Anker 25W 5V / 5A(Max) Model E150 USB adapter can simultaneously charge two tablets (iPad 3 and Nexus 7) and three smartphones. That feat suggests that 25W output may be close. I could not get two tablets and two smartphones to charge on a competitor’s 20W 4-banger device. I’ll take the Anker over the other guy’s any day.

    The device’s 5 ports are really useful at airports and cafes where people would otherwise battle over wall socket rights. If you’re a frequent traveler, you know what I mean. AC input is 100-240v 50-60Hz enabling worldwide electrical compatibility. The power cord is around 3 foot and uses a common appliance 2 wire connector to mate with the device. You can probably find a replacement cord that’s longer or has a different plug for international use. To use worldwide, you’ll need either a physical adapter or a different power cord. An EU version of the device is sold on amazon.de.

    Testing note: I took some missteps in early testing. I initially used a Triplite multi-plug adapter to plug in the Anker. The fuse kept blowing. I assumed the Anker was doing so but it was actually the multi-plug adapter. Next I noticed the iPad would charge for seconds and then stop. Turns out the cheap iPhone USB cable I was using doesn’t connect well in an Anker port but does connect ok with the Apple charger. Likely the cheap iPad 3 cable is out of spec, probably not the Anker(?). All other USB cables worked fine with the Anker. The lesson is it’s easy to misjudge fault even with such a seemingly simple device.
