Mr Biddle is dead right, the Anker 5 port USB chargers we got while in the USA last month are awesome!



Charging and running all of the things!

As a side, the +port is a sweet gadget for Dell Venue 8 Pro users, allowing simultaneous charging and USB port use while also powering the USB device(s).

Thanks for the tip. That +port is also just what I need.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I have to say once again that the four that I bought in the States (kept two gave away two) are amazing devices. Completely silent. Charge anything I can find. Awesome.

Amazon should ship direct. It appears to when I add it to my cart. You might have to check who fulfills it.... Some Amazon sellers shop and some don't.

Still trying to find other options, but when fulfilled by Amazon I get "This item does not ship to Auckland, New Zealand."




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Ahh. You are right. It is the screen after address selection that rejects the address.

Actually, after some ducking and diving after clicking your link, I think I've sorted it out, thanks.

Hah there was no credit for discovery, just reaffirmation of his current fanboyism :-)

Thanks :-)

That is good. Glad to hear that there is no excess credit being given!

Glad to have recommended a product and for it to have worked out.
