EnergyQC 5000mAh Mini Portable Charger Review


I HAVE THE POWER! Well, the power to easily charge my phone on the go anyway, with the EnergyQC 5000mAh Mini Portable Charger.

Running out of phone battery whilst out and about can sometimes be a real pain. It’s even worse if you are not near a socket so that you can plug in. But help is at hand with a portable charger, and they are becoming more of a MUST HAVE ACCESSORY these days. But portable chargers / power banks can be big, bulky, heavy items and not the most practical in some situations, such as going for a run – you are essentially running along with a large battery in your hand or pocket. That’s where the EnergyQC 5000mAh Mini Portable Charger is different from the rest, it is a cylindrical charger that neatly fits into your hand, is lightweight and has enough charge to give your phone a top-up or a full charge.

The EnergyQC Mini Portable Charger is a lightweight portable charger that weighs approximately 99g. It measures 11×2.7×2.7cm. It is equipped with a 5000mAh rechargeable battery (2.4A output) which depending on your phone will give at least one full charge. It is available in Black or Rose Gold.

In the box:

  • EnergyQC 5000mAh Power Bank
  • USB Cable (USB-A to USB-C)
  • Manual

I have already mentioned that it is cylindrical in shape and 11cm in length, which makes it very easy and comfortable to hold. It has a circular LED petal display to indicate power remaining and charging – a circle divided up into quarters with each petal representing 25%. On the base of the charger is a USB type C input for charging the unit and a USB type A output for charging your phone or other devices. It is supplied with a USB-A to USB-C cable, but you can plug in your own USB-A cable with Micro-USB or other connector to charge different devices such as tablets, smartwatches, wireless earbuds etc.

Out of the box there will be charge in the portable charger, so you can use it straight out of the box. The first thing I did was to start charging my phone just to run down the battery in the charger. Once the charger was depleted, I could then give it a full charge. It doesn’t come with a wall plug but you can just use your phone charger (if USB-C or has a removable USB cable). It took just under 3 hours for it to fully charge – whilst charging, the indicator petal LEDS will blink on and off depending on how much charge it has and go solid when each part is complete (e.g. when charging up to 25% it will blink and go solid when it reaches 25% with the next petal blinking until it reaches 50% etc.). When fully charged all the four petals will be solid white lights. You can see how much charge is remaining in it by pressing the button in the centre of the petals.

How much charge you get out of the 5000mAh battery is going to depend on the device you are charging. For most people it will probably be their phone, especially when out and about. It can fully charge an iPhone 13 in 1.5 hours (90 minutes). I was using it with my Samsung Galaxy Note9 and it fully charged it in 2.5 hours (150 minutes) – my phone was still on, just with the screen saver so would have been quicker charging if the phone was switched off. Charging my phone from flat gave me one complete charge out of the EnergyQC portable charger.

Overall, the EnergyQC 5000mAh Mini Portable Charger is a great little emergency charger. It is extremely lightweight and the cylindrical shape makes it very easy and comfortable to use. It has enough power in it to give most phones at least one full charge, which is perfect for if your phone is running out of battery power whilst you are out – you can just give your phone a quick top up or a complete charge, and you can still use your phone whilst charging (although if doing this you might not get one full charge out of the power bank).

This is an excellent little charger for keeping in your pocket or bag and because of the shape and weight you won’t even known that you are carrying it around.

It will need to be recharged after every use so that you always have enough charge in it, but it seems to keep its charge well. After a full charge I left it for 2 nights and it didn’t seem to lose any charge.

As an emergency charger it is perfect. Enough charge to hopefully see you through the day. It is great for using when exercising as it can easily be held or slipped into a pocket or armband. Whilst there are more powerful chargers out there (EnergyQC also do them), they are bulkier, heavier and not as easy or comfortable to hold. If you want something lightweight, easy to use and comfortable to hold with enough power to give your phone a full charge then you can’t go wrong with the EnergyQC 5000mAh Mini Portable Charger.
