Review: Anker PowerCore+ 13400

Anker PowerCore+13400









  • It has a lot of Power Capacity that can last you for days.
  • Fast charging through each of the ports with 2.4 Amps and a Max Output of 4.8A.
  • A great design that uses 10 LED Power Capacity indicators to more accurately display power that's left


  • It's a large and heavy power bank that isn't ideal to carry around.

If you’ve read our review of the Anker PowerCore+ 10050 power bank, then you know that we liked that the charger was designed heavily on a purpose base.

The power capacity wasn’t exactly near the original power capacity, but everything else that followed matches the Output power capacity that you’d receive.

Its single port made sense along with Quick Charge and PoweriQ, it was a great power bank charger that has precision in nearly every way.

In this review, we’re reviewing Anker’s PowerCore+ 13,400mAh power bank charger. It has some very similar traits from the PowerCore+ 10,050mAh one but just with a few things added on and some taken away. However, to call it a degrade or upgrade is something that we’ll decide on this review.

Power Capacity:

When I reviewed the PowerCore+ 10,050 what was found was a somewhat poor conversion rate and as a result, the real power capacity that you’d receive was 7,000mAh. This time, with this high capacity power bank, you’d think that a simple experience awaits. That’s somewhat the case.

The power bank has a really good conversion rate during charging and you can expect a real power capacity of about 11,000mAh If you’re charging a single device.

As a result, you can expect 4 full charges for nearly all smartphones. As for charging a tablet from a single port, you can expect the charger to charge a tablet like an iPad 1.5 times.

That’s the power capacity that you can get by charging through a single port.

However, the power bank has two charging ports. If you’re using the two charging ports at the same time, you can expect the Output power capacity to be even lower than 11,000mAh.

Also, it comes down to just how fast your device is charging. The faster charging that is happening, the lower the capacity will be. However, based on the common usage of a power bank, this charger sits at about 11,000mAh of power capacity that you will most likely take advantage of.

Onto the charging options and speed, this power bank has two charging ports. Each of the USB ports features Anker’s PowerIQ tech, which means that both of the ports can charge at 5V/2.4A.

Anker PowerCore+13400 Offers some Very Powerful Charging

This where the power bank shines the most because it’s able to deliver a max standard charging speed with both of its ports at the same time.

This means that you can charge two iPads at a max charging of 2.4A because the total output capabilities of this charger are 4.8A. It’s also great for smartphones because smartphones will charge at their max speeds, except for Quick Charge compatible smartphones. Unlike its other version, the PowerCore+ 10,050mAh.

This PowerCore 13,400mAh power bank does not feature Quick Charge. Although that isn’t to say this power bank is worse and has slower charging. That’s not it at all because it can still provide a fast charging rate out of both of its ports.

You can connect an iPad to one port to charge as fast as possible and connect a smartphone to the other port and it will charge at its max speed if it’s not Quick Charge compatible (This is assuming that Quick Charge charging is the real max speed for Quick Charge compatible devices.)

Unlike its other version, the PowerCore+ 10,050mAh; this PowerCore 13,400mAh power bank does not feature Quick Charge. Although that isn’t to say this power bank is worse and has slower charging.

That’s not it at all because it can still provide a fast charging rate out of both of its ports.

You can connect an iPad to one port to charge as fast as possible and connect a smartphone to the other port and it will charge at its max speed if it’s not Quick Charge compatible (This is assuming that Quick Charge charging is the real max speed for Quick Charge compatible devices.)

There isn’t a limit to the charging speed this fast charging power bank has to offer. The usual case for chargers like these is for one port to be 1 Amp and the other 2.4A, but the PowerCore+ goes all the way and can provide max power to any two devices that are connected to its ports.


Input Charging

Unfortunately, the power bank does not recharge at Quick Charge speeds. The power bank is recharged through a Micro-USB input and can recharge 5V/2.0A speeds.

I highly recommend using a wall charger with an Output of 5V/2.0A or higher because the power bank will be able to recharge at its max speed by doing so. If the charger is charged at its max speed, then it will be able to recharge fully in about 5-6 hours.

If you recharge it with a wall charger that supplies 5V/1.0A charging speed, then you can expect a full recharge in 8-9 hours.

Size and Weight:

It’s got a similar shape but an overall bigger size than the PowerCore+ 10,050 power bank. It is 5.7 inches in length, a width of 4.3 inches and a thickness of 1.3 inches. The charger weighs nearly a full pound at 13 ounces, so it’s quite heavy.

We said that the PowerCore+ 10,050mAh charger can very well hold in the hands and used but in this case, with this 13,400mAh power bank it won’t be too easy. It’s larger and heavier than the other version. With that said, it’s best to opt for setting the power bank down and using, and this will especially be the case if you plan on charging two devices at the same time.

However, the power bank is still very much a portable charger because you can still carry it around in your hands but it won’t be the most comfortable experience; or you can place it into a bag and transport it with you.


Functional Components:

The design of the functional parts of the charger is very similar to the 10,050mAh PowerCore+, it’s just that this one has another charging port added.

You can find the USB charging Output ports on a side panel and the Micro-USB Input there as well. There’s a power button on the top of the power bank that has 10 LED power indicator lights.

The 10 LED power system to indicate power capacity is one the best ways to indicate power capacity because each of the lights is telling 10% of power is available.

If 7 lights are on that would mean the power bank is at 70% of the power. Rather than taking the traditional 4 light paths, this charger can give a more accurate way to tell the power capacity.

Structure and Material:

Just like its other traits, the PowerCore+ 13,400mAh power bank is built just like its other versions. Three main pieces make the body. A center body piece of Aluminium Alloy and two side panels that are made of plastic.

Under the large Aluminum alloy center is a plastic reinforcement layer that can take falls or anything that can cause shock to the power bank, and if that happens the reinforcement layer is what keeps the power bank more safe than one without it.


Of course, the PowerCore+ features Anker’s Multi-Protection system that has many safety protection protocols such as Over-Voltage Control, Over Current Control, Short Circuit Prevent, and Surge Protection.

However, the most useful tech and build quality aspect of this power bank and nearly all of the Anker’s power bank is the use of Panasonic battery cells.

It’s one of the reasons that the conversion of this charger is so good. Also, Panasonic battery cells can last long in the long-term with holding onto their original power capacity for a long amount of time.


It’s a highly reliable power bank if you plan on using both of the charging ports.

Don’t get me wrong, the power bank can do a very good job at providing an awesome charging experience with just a single port, but to rely on both of its charging ports will provide a better charging experience. This is because both of the USB charging Output ports can supply a 5V/2.4A amount of power and total power output can be 2.4A.

If you’re only using a single port, then you’re only taking advantage of half the potential that this charger can provide. With that said, if you do plan on only using a single device, that’s okay too because you’ll probably have more capacity as well but it might be better to go with the PowerCore + 10,050mAh version.

If you’re using the two charging ports, both of the devices will be able to charge at their max speed. It’ll be at its most reliable level if you plan on charging 2 iPads at the same time because then you can take advantage of that max output of 4.8A.

In terms of portability, it’s not portable enough to be carried with one hand and to use the device you’re charging comfortably. Of course, you can hold the charger in a single hand but it won’t be very long before holding it becomes cumbersome. So you’ll have to set it down if you want to rely on it comfortably.

The actual power capacity that you’ll be able to receive can fluctuate depending on the charging speed that you’re getting.

However, 11,000mAh of power is the base of where the power bank can supply the most amount of power.

The two charging ports can charge at a max standard charging speed of 2.4A and the Max Output of the power bank is 4.8A. So you’re always going to be getting fast charging to your devices regardless if you have one or two devices connected to the charger.


It’s a medium to slightly large power bank but what makes it seem large is the weight at 13 ounces; so it’s quite heavy. The functional parts are all easy to find and use. The 10 LED power indicators are really helpful to know what the power is in the charger.


3 main pieces make up the power bank’s structure: The Aluminum centerpiece, and two plastic side panels. There’s a plastic reinforcement layer under the large center body. It has Anker’s Multi Safety Protection system and makes great use of Panasonic battery cells.


It’s a reliable power bank no matter how you look at it but it’s most reliable when you take advantage of the two charging ports at the same time. This because the total output capabilities of the charger are 4.8A, which means that any two devices that you connect to it will charge at its max speed.

Specs of the Anker PowerCore+ 13400:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 13,400mAh             Output Capacity: 11,000mAh
  • Output:  Both Ports: 5V/2.4A    Max Output: 4.8A
  • Input: 5V / 2A, 9V / 2A via Micro USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 10 LED Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 5.7 x 1.4 x 4.3 inches
  • Weight: 13.8 Ounces


A higher capacity, an additional charging port, and a bigger size/weight are basically what comes with this power bank.

In comparison to its very comparative version, the PowerCore+ 10,050mAh power bank. Although this one does not have Quick Charge, it’s still very possible to charge nearly any device that you connect to it at a fast charging rate.

The capacity that you receive can fluctuate depending on the charging speed that you’re taking advantage of but overall it’s enough to last for a few days. Its larger size isn’t anything to worry about and it’s still very portable but to get the most value out of this power bank, you should use both of the charging ports.

Otherwise, take a look at other 1 port power banks that feature similar specs such as this one.
