LG G5 BCK-5100 Hybrid Battery Charger & Portable Battery review


Welcome to my review of the LG G5 BCK-5100 Hybrid Battery Charger & Portable Battery.

The LG G5 BCK-5100 is available and in stock from Clove Technology. It costs £39.99.

So what do you get in the box and why is this a hybrid charger.


Apart from a few leaflets you get the charging dock, a LG G5 battery and a plastic protective case for the spare battery to transport it in.

So unlike most current flagship phones none offer a user swappable battery like the G5. So with this kit, you can change the G5’s battery with the spare recharged one. This means rejuicing from 0% to 100% in seconds. The fastest quick charge ever!

The dock connects using the usb type C cable that came with your G5. Its annoying that a cable isn’t included especially at the price being charged. You place the battery inside and the led lights flash until all of them turn solid indicating a full battery.

But this is a hybrid charger meaning you can connect any USB cable and recharge another device. So in essence it doubles up as a portable battery charger as well.

The specifications are –

– Input : 5V, 1.8A (USB C type) 
– Output : 5V, 1A (USB A type)

If you have a LG G5 then this is a must have accessory. It is superb going from a flat battery to 100% in seconds and also having the ability to recharge another device.
