The Anker® 25W 5-Port Charger is an amazing charger! Unfortunately I it has some ports specific to iOS devices. Since I only own Android devices i could only charge them at full capacity on 2 of the 5 ports available, so I decided to fix that and here is how it was done!

Step 1: Open It!

After many tries I was able to find that the plastic part where the AC power connector is can be removed.

Just insert a really thin blade where the case meets the back sticker an force it open.

After that, just cut the white glue looking thing and pull the circuit out!

Step 2: Soldering!

Now that you have access to the circuit board let the soldering begin!

On picture number 2 you can clearly see that the Pins 2 and 3 of the Android specific ports are soldered together.

To make all the ports Android AC chargers you only have to solder all the other ports pins 2 and 3 together.

Step 3: Put It Back Together!

To put the charger back together just do the reverse of step one and use some superglue to keep it in place.

I hope that helped you! Let me know if you have any questions.

<p>It's kind of weird... What Android device do you have? Is far as I know and tested, android devices don't need any special connection on data lines (but Apple needs)... Just 5V and GND in correct place, and let the charging begin...</p>
<p>Te devices charge in USB mode. To take advantage of full speed charging it needs to have the data pins shortened. I have a Nexus 4, a 5 , a 7 and a 10 and all of them require the data pins shortened to charge at full capacity. Otherwise it charges on USB mode.</p>
