Amazon Lightning Deal: Anker Astro E5 15000mAh Battery Pack for $40

February 12, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Looking for a nice external battery pack to carry around with you when you need to charge your phone or tablet? Well Amazon has a lightning deal going on right now for the Anker Astro E5 15000mAh battery pack. But you’ll need to hurry. As there is only three and a half hours left to claim these, at least at the time of writing.

The Anker Astro E5 we’ve mentioned and recommended quite a few times. It’s available now for $39.99, which is a 60% savings off of it’s normal price. So it’s a great deal. It does have two USB ports so you can charge your phone and tablet at the same time, which is a pretty big deal. It also comes in both black and white and does have four LED lights that indicate how much battery is left on the battery pack.

With it being around 15,000mAh in size, you should be able to charge your phone at least 2-3 times or more, but that all depends on your phone. As we have some phones with batteries as small as 1800mAh, and some as large as 3500mAh in the G Flex and DROID Maxx. So it all depends on the size of your phone. It has a super-fast charge output of 5V/3A total, through both USB ports, which is quite good. Inside the box you’ll get the external battery, micro USB cable and a travel pouch. Which is nice to have, although I wish the microUSB cord was embedded inside the battery pack.

How many of you are going to be picking up one of these from Amazon today? Be sure to let us know if you’re able to get in before the Lightning deal is over with!
