Introducing the Anker PowerCore Slim 5000mAh is not easy and it is a struggle to think of the perfect word to describe it. It is a product that is clearly designed for those who love Technology. The product is an alternative to Anker’s new PowerCore 5000! The obvious difference between the two is the size and shape as the non-slim 5000 is a cylinder and the slim is thin.
Firstly, the packaging is Anker’s traditional colours; white and blue. Both of which we love! The product slides out of the bottom of the package wrapped in a bag, which is a nice touch for keeping it clean. The device is well packaged and secure, including a travel pouch underneath the device once lifted out!
The included PowerCore Slim Travel Pouch can be seen alongside the Anker Welcome Guide, their customer service and feedback slip.
The Anker PowerCore 5000 Slim Product:
The product itself comes with a smooth rubberised and durable body. The product is really light to hold and looks of a high quality.
Secondly, the size comparison against the Anker PowerCore Edge shows the Slim being far smaller. One of the points I noted from the Edge Review was its weight. Both are fantastic but the Slim is far superior for portability. The battery size is smaller but fits nicely in your pocket next to your phone without any problem.
I bought the device for £20.00 on Amazon and this was reasonable for the quality Anker provide within their products. This is not as much as the PowerCore Edge costs but the Edge device is more suitable for long distance travelling.

In conclusion, my initial impressions were that the product had great potential. After a week of use and because of Pokemon I have used this endlessly and it works fantastic. Therefore I have no problems recommending this to anyone, especially those looking for a high quality portable charger. Most of all the device does not take long to charge and the PowerIQ feature helped to speed up the charging of my iPhone 6S faster than a normal USB charge!
The Anker PowerCore Slim 5000 is available on Amazon UK here – Due to demand it is worth being patient as the device is in and out of stock periodically.
