Huawei P20

At the Grand Palace in Paris, Huawei officially announced the new generation of Huawei P20 series two months ago. The Huawei P series has always paid great attention to photography prowess, and this time Huawei P20 introduces five new photography features.

Currently in all the Android smartphone brands, Huawei may be doing the best with digital zoom. At the same time, Huawei P20 has the three new advantages with its battery: 3400mAh large capacity, intelligent power-saving technology, and super charging speed. When using the P20 original charger to charge the phone, the output voltage and current is about 4.5V/ 5A.

Huawei P20 Charging

Although Huawei P20 has smart energy-saving features and super-charge technology, there is no doubt that a portable charger is essential for those of us who lead a active lifestyle. When you want to buy a portable charger for Huawei P20, you may not know that the voltage and current “4.5V/5A” mentioned above matters. Why is it necessary to consider this? Let's go into that a little bit.

Q: Is every power bank compatible with every phone?

A: Unfortunately, no. If the output power of the power bank exceeds your battery's acceptable range, although the battery can also be charged, the battery life will be damaged greatly, and this could even damage the battery.

Specifically, a power bank is equivalent to a power supply, which has its own output voltage and current. The power bank voltage is preferably matched with the output voltage of the cell phone charger. Distinct output power differs the length of charging. In general, the lower the power is, the slower the charging speed.

Q: Does a power bank affect the life of the battery, especially for phones which can be super charged like Huawei P20?

A: Using any power bank can impact the lifespan of your battery. If you can use the official standard charger, then use a power bank only when necessary.  In fact, many experts have said that using the phone while charging it can be one of the biggest contributing factors to reduced battery life.

A good bank power is intelligent. Over-current protection, over-heat protection, over-voltage protection, etc. This is necessary to protect both the battery and the circuitry of your device.

A3TC can charge compatible devices at up to 5V, 3A (15W). General power banks have a relatively large range of charging configurations in order to adapt to most mobile phones. For example, Huawei's P20 battery is within this range. Here are some other key advantages of Zendure's A3TC portable charger:

  1. Durability: Zendure batteries originated from one of the most successful external battery projects on Kickstarter. Crush-proof composite material, dual-injection molding and a shock-absorbing central belt make Zendure portable chargers some of the most durable external batteries available.
