Who are Anker?
Anker are a Hong Kong based company who specialise in portable power, mobile accessories such as cables, screen protectors and even Bluetooth keyboards for your tablets. Founded in 2011 by a man named Steven Yang, who worked as a senior engineer for Google, it now trades in over 70 countries and spanning 6 continents and quickly became a no. 1 branded seller across several online marketplaces.
Anker is a multinational team of techies. But don’t let that fool you, they’re customers too. They like to approach every detail from a user’s perspective to improve their technology, raise the bar, and make life easier. That means starting with affordable, high-quality gear and ending with 100% user satisfaction. With a worry-free guarantee that ensures you get quick, no-hassle service when you need it.
What sets Anker aside from their competition is that unlike many Chinese brands, they have adopted direct selling to the western market via regional webshops and marketplaces. They maintain subsidiaries in California, Germany, UK, Japan and China.
Their company mission goes as followed:
“At Anker, we can’t exactly help you unwind, but we can make your tech gear that much easier to enjoy and we do this with passion. Say goodbye to first world tech woes like oppressive low batteries and limited ports. Say hello to an easier, smarter life.”
So why Anker?
Raise your hand if you lose your cool whenever your smartphone battery goes dead half way through the day after a full night’s charge. Portable power is an ingenious approach to this decade long problem that smartphone users have had to suffer.
Anyone who has previously purchased a cheap charge bank and realised that it barely refills your phones battery after a full charge will know the frustration that this may cause. Whilst you may think initially it’s probably a better deal to get something that does exactly the same thing, but cheaper, you find that a lot of these cheap products don’t come with warranty, or work fine for the first couple of months, but soon after lose their power to perform like they did when it was first purchased (battery draining, constant recharging etc can and generally does affect rechargeable batteries). This is where Anker excel – they have a 30 day returns policy, as well as an 18 month guarantee on all of their products, which ensures maximum customer satisfaction.
Anker have a wide range of accessories that will keep you… ahem… accessorised for every occasion. Whether you’re planning on backpacking across a continent, or you’re simply going on a roadtrip where you know you’ll be snap happy, you need a product you can trust, and Anker have got you covered.
Such top-down excellence hasn’t gone unnoticed. The Anker Astro external battery has been voted #1 in class by thousands of online reviewers, praised by tech bloggers, and featured on TV networks across America, whilst their renowned customer service has made them a fan-favourite across the web.
