Samsung has launched a new ‘Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack’ with a 5100mAh battery. Unlike most power banks, Samsung Portable Battery Pack is compatible with USB, Micro-USB, and USB Type-C devices, which includes smartphones and tablets.
The South-Korean company claims that this battery back will be sufficient for two full charges to smartphones. It is priced at $59.99 (roughly UGX. 218,220) and is available via Amazon and Samsung online store in the US.
The portable battery pack from Samsung will deliver ‘1.5x fast charging’ on compatible devices that use Samsung Fast Charge, which includes recent Galaxy smartphones like Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 4, and so on. Rest of the devices will be charged at regular charging speeds.
Interesting, the Samsung Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack and the smartphone can be charged simultaneously with the ‘pass-through’ charging functionality. It simply means that you can plug-in and charge the battery pack while charging your smartphone through the battery pack.
The retail box of the Samsung Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack includes a battery pack, Micro-USB cable, and a Micro USB to USB Type-C adapter. It comes in two colours – Navy and Silver.
