[Video] Here’s How to Recharge the Galaxy Note 5 On The Go
Samsung today posted a video showing how users of the new Galaxy Note 5 can recharge their device on the go.
According to the South Korean phone maker, what you really need to recharge your Galaxy Note 5 while away from a power outlet, is its new Battery Pack. Sold separately, the new 5200mAh Fast Charge Battery Pack is available in gold or silver.
With a universal USB port output, you can charge other mobile devices capable of charging via USB. The battery pack’s 5200mAh capacity can be recharged over and over. When fully powered, Samsung claims, the battery pack holds enough juice to charge most of the latest smartphones up to at least 1 ½ times.
The Samsung Battery Pack is pretty easy to use. To begin charging, plug in a USB charging cable like the included USB to Micro USB charging cable to the USB output port on the battery pack and connect the opposite end of your charging cable to your smartphone, tablet or other electronic device. Your device will immediately begin to charge.
For recharging the battery pack itself, plug a Micro USB charger into the Micro USB port of the battery pack.
While you can use the Battery Pack with most devices that can be charged via a USB port, its Fast Charge technology is compatible only with the following Samsung handsets: Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5.
Samsung says the Battery Pack allows you to charge your Fast Charge-compatible devices from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. Other devices will charge at up to a standard 2A speed.
