Charge Your Android Devices at Full Capacity Using the Anker® 25W 5-Port USB Charger




Introduction: Charge Your Android Devices at Full Capacity Using the Anker® 25W 5-Port USB Charger

About: I'm a former engineer student who fell in love with economics and is currently pursuing my bachelors. But the engineer in me will never die!

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.

    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...

    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.
