Lenovo Vibe K5 Note - Slow battery charging issue

2016-08-08, 21:41 PM

I bought a new Lenovo Vibe K5 Note smartphone along with a powerbank - ADATA PV110 (Output 5V1A or 5V2.1A). 

While I charge my phone with original charger (Output 5.2V2A), everything is fine, charging takes around 1,5 to 2 hours. When I try to charge with the powerbank it takes the phone 6 or more hours to fully charge. I've measured the amperage with downloaded apk - it was around 0,4 A - more or less same as charging via USB connected to my laptop. I've tried charging while in Power Saving Mode and also while the phone was turned of, yet nothing helped. Other phones (Sony something) with my power bank plugged in charge pretty quickly (over 1A and more). 

 

So is there any way to make charging from power bank and my laptop quicker? Any kind of help appreciated :)

tried that, phone stile slow af. anyways I found a solution a few days back. it was the USB cable - I got now different one that charges several times faster. (what still bugs me is that even original Lenovo USB cable was slow when it was anywhere other than the original charger...)

I am no expert, but I can offer some advices... First, are you charging your phone via a charger or a laptop/powerbank/something like that? 

If it's a charger than také a look at the "boxy" thing (dunno what it's called) And look for an output amperage - the higher number the better. If There is eg 1.0A then charger is slow And you should get a new one. If There is number 2.1A or close then the problem is probably In your USB cable - which was my issue. Try using a different USB cable.

If you are charging via laptop, the problem is still probably the cable. If by power bank, again check the Amperage. 

To check how many Ampers are "Getting" to your phone (the actual amount is always smaller than what the charger says) you can get an app. I'm using an app called Ampere.

Hope it helps :)

Me too have the same problem, just the difference is Lenovo K5. It's taking more than 8 hours for 50% charging and it was working properly untill few days before as I have bought this new phone jus 3 months before. can anyone suggest me the possible ways to recover this issue...? Is this issue related with only the battery...? Can I get a new battery in the warranty period...?
