Samsung Battery Pack Type-C Review
Samsung OEM Battery Pack Type-C is a reliable unit that you can use to fast charge compatible smartphones while you’re on the go. The micro-USB cable allows you to connect any of your devices to the power bank for an effective charge, either using a fast charge or normal charge technology. With the small battery capacity, you can power up your most of your devices up to two times from 0 – 100%.
The Samsung Battery Pack Type-C has 5100mAh of power to provide up to two full charges from 0-100% on the majority of mobile devices. The USB-A output port enables you to charge USB compatible devices at standard speed, while the portable charger can also power up compatible devices using Fast Charge speed, which is 1.5x faster than traditional USB charging methods.
The power bank comes bundled with a micro-USB cable and micro-USB to USB-C adapter, allowing you to replenish a variety of devices at up to 2A speeds.
Fast Charging is compatible with the following smartphones: Samsung, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 4, and later versions of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note product line.
The USB-A port has a rating of 5V/2A on normal charge and 9V/1.67A on Fast Charge. It only takes 100 minutes to charge the Galaxy S8 on Fast Charge and 113 minutes on a basic charge. With the Galaxy S8+, it will take 101 minutes on Fast Charge and 120 minutes on normal charge just to refresh the battery.
It will take up to 200 minutes on 10W (basic charge) to replenish the battery pack, which has a rating of 5V/2A. It will also take 180 minutes to power up the device on 15W (Fast Charge), which has a rating of 9V/1,67A.
Pass-through charging enables you to charge your smartphone and the battery pack at the same time. Just hook up your phone to the power bank and both devices will begin charging.
The Samsung Battery Pack Type-C is 0.5” thick, 2.9” wide and 5.2” long, which is a perfect fit for your pocket or the palm of your hand. Weighing only 8.5 ounces, it’s very lightweight and convenient to carry around, mostly due to the not-so-bulky design. Due to its built, the device is more ideal to be used whenever you’re out-and-about.
Compared to the Samsung wireless portable charger, the 5100mAh battery pack is less than half the weight. But it also has half the capacity. So depending on your needs, you might prefer one or the other.
Compact and portable, this device is perfectly safe to take aboard on a flight with you. It only has 19Wh, which is way below the 100Wh limit set by the TSA.
Look and feel
The slim and stylish Samsung OEM Battery Pack Type-C is available in navy or silver and has a simple design that’s both handy and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It’s encased with a soft matte plastic case that makes it extremely easy to grip firmly in one hand, effectively reducing the risk of dropping it. Two rounded corners at the bottom provide a nice touch by giving it a more compact and durable build.
You can also find a built-in carrying strap sticking out at the top of the device, on a metal plate, that will make it comfortable enough to hold and carry around, either on your fingers or hand. On the left-hand side of the strap, you’ll find a USB-C port to charge the unit and a power button. Opposite of that, you’ll find a USB-A port you can use to charge your mobile device.
A unique LED battery level indicator in the form of a bar is located on the front of the device, near the left-hand side, just above the battery level button. If you press the power button while it’s not in use, the battery level indicator will illuminate, displaying how much battery power is left. When a smartphone is connected, the indicator LED will show the charging status.
Durability & build quality
The Samsung Battery Pack Type-C was built to withstand light drops on the ground. Though it’s not water-resistant, its casing is still constructed with high-quality materials, ensuring it remains sturdy throughout its life. So it’s not recommended to take it on a camping trip since the rain and dust/dirt can easily damage the internal system.
It also provides protection against overheating and overcurrent. These safety features will work well with the built-in lithium-polymer battery, providing a safe charging experience for your smartphone and the power bank itself.
The power bank has a full one-year warranty, which begins on the date of purchase, available in the United States. If the device has a manufacturing defect or needs to be replaced while it’s under warranty, Samsung will replace it at no extra cost to you. Defective parts and products must be returned to Samsung.
Even though it has a small capacity, Samsung Battery Pack Type-C is sufficient enough to charge your smartphones up to two times and can even rapidly charge compatible devices. This battery pack is great if you’re looking for something slim, stylish and small in size. It’s very easy to carry around, thanks to the built-in strap, making it suitable for you if you’re on the go a lot.
