Product review: Type-C / USB-C Input & Output Lumsing QC 3.0 13400 mAh High-Capacity Power Bank
♦ size: 3 7/8" x 3 1/8" x 7/8"
♦ weight: 9.3 oz
♦ number of ports: 2 (one Type A USB, one Type C USB)
♦ flashlight: yes, but it is not bright
♦ pass through charging: no (i.e. the battery can charge while being charged itself)
♦ cables: 1 micro USB cable
The external battery performed well using Nexus 5 on with micro USB and Nexus 6p with type C cable.
The type C port can be used both to charge the battery and to charge devices that can take type C cable. I am using this battery charger for Nexus 6p, and it is nice that I can carry only one cable, the type C cable. I can recharge the phone three times.
The battery can be charged either using micro USB cable ot type-C cable. I was curious which one will charge the battery faster. Type-C cable is a little faster.
Using micro USB cable the battery charger: 4.80V / 1.42A
Using type-C cable: 4.80V / 1.55A
Nexus 5 using micro USB cable: 4.97V / 1.12A using the Lumsing battery
Nexus 6p using type-C cable to type-C USB cable: 1.79A using the Lumsing battery
Nexus 6p using type-C cable to type-A USB cable: 2.20A using the Lumsing battery
For comparison, I use type-C to type-C cable and a wall charger: 2.13
I also tested to see if the battery supports pass-through charging (i.e. whether the battery can charge mobile devices while it is being charged). This battery does NOT supports charge through charging. It can not charge while being charged.
