Being a device carrying a 13000mAh battery, it would be a shame not to sport a reverse charging feature so it could be used as a powerbank. The Power 5 was recently released and became the biggest battery smartphone in the world. As you can imagine, the humongous battery gives days of use but what happens when it is used as a powerbank? Let’s check it out in the video below.
The first half of the video shows the Power 5 powering 11 devices simultaneously. Of course, the power drawn by all 11 of them is enormous and it should deplete the Power 5 fast but it’s an indicator of what the device is capable of. The interesting part, though, is the second half of the video where a fully charged Power 5 is used to charge a totally discharged 10000mAh Xiaomi powerbank. In the end, the video shows a fully charged powerbank and the remaining battery on the Power 5 is 23%. There is a little problem there as the numbers don’t add up very well. The 77% of the 13000mAh battery equals to 10010mAh and taking into consideration that there is energy loss during charging, it should have consumed much more than that.
Regardless of all the above, the Ulefone Power 5 is the best big battery phone out there right now and has some additional features that come with it like the 5V/5A fast charge and wireless charging function, 21MP rear camera, 13MP front camera, face unlock support, and Android 8.1 Oreo. And it is now on sale for $279 on Aliexpress together with the Ulefone X notch smartphone that arrives on June 14th for $159.99.
