Best Power Banks for LG G5

The LG G5 is truly one of the best smartphones that LG has made and some might say that it’s the phone that truly started to change the direction that they were going.

In a way, that’s true. When the G5 was released it had some of the best specs on the market that rivaled flagships such as Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones or HTC smartphones too.

Now we have LG creating some other awesome smartphones such as the LG G6, LG V20, and the LG V30 too.

Even though LG G5 never took the fully modular functionality, the use of a removable battery is a very awesome feature that is now no longer existing with many newer smartphones.

The battery capacity of the LG G5 isn’t’ the largest but it’s good enough at a 2,800mAh capacity and when you add in the use of Quick Charge 3.0 then recharging the G5 actually becomes something that you can look forward to as you can charge the smartphone to its full power very quickly.

Since the LG G5 is actually quite small, and uses Quick Charge 3.0, using a power bank along with this small and fast charging smartphone is a great option. As you’re going to be able to charge your phone at a very fast rate while you’re on the move and use it at the same time.

That’s why we just wanted to go over the best power banks for the LG G5.

Anker PowerCore+ 10050pic-1-1

Anker has quite a few 10,000mAh power banks and for good reasons too, as they’re very good at creating power banks that have mid-range power capacities while still making the size of a Mini power bank.

That’s what this PowerCore+ 10050 portable charger is able to do as it has a length of only 3.7 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches and so you’re able to hold this power bank with no problems while you’re using your smartphone and charging it at the same time.

You can even place this Anker portable charger into your pocket and use it later on in your day.

When it comes to the power that this charger has, well, there’s quite a good amount. That’s because this PowerCore+ charger has a 10,050mAh power capacity and that’s enough to charge LG G5 to its full power at least twice.

Also, this charger uses a single USB port that features Quick Charge 3.0 port and therefore you’re able to charge your G5 at its max power.

Even though there are a lot of 10,000mAh power banks on the market that use more than just a single USB port, the use of single port means that you can make more use of the power capacity as it’s being used with a single device at all times.

Then there’s the recharging with this power bank and it’s also a really good part of the charger as the Micro-USB input port uses Quick Charge 3.0 and when you use a Quick Charge 3.0 USB wall charger to recharge it, you’re able to refill it to its max power within 3.5 hours.
