Do You Know : You Can Use Your Infinix Hot Note X551 Phone As Power Bank?

Yes, you read that right! You can actually use your infinix hot note x551 android phone as power bank in charging other phones.

Yesterday, i was at Infinix office and we got talking about their devices. It was then, one of their staff did a practical based on the fact that he can use the infinix hot note phone in charging another android phone. Honestly, I wasn’t so surprised in regards the fact that an android phone can be used in charging another phone but i didn’t know the infinix hot note can actually do that.


As we already stated on the infinix hot note review post, the device comes backed with a 4000mAh battery and that didn’t disappoint. My hot note can stay four days without been charged and knowing that the device can be used as a power bank, just makes it better.

How Can I Actually Use The Infinix Hot Note X551 In Charging Other Phones?

Good question! But then, are you also aware that the infinix hot note phone boasts of fast charging ability? I mean, in about 20 mins of charge, your hot note can charge to a capacity of which you can use for over a day. The downside to this is, the fast charging ability is only incorporated in the charger that comes with the phone. Using a different phone’s charger won’t really charge the device faster than it’s original.

Having stated that, being able to use the infinix hot note device in charging other devices requires using the OTG cable. The full meaning for OTG is USB on the Go. OTG cable allows USB devices such as digital audio players or mobile phones to act as a host, allowing other USB devices like a USB flash drive, digital camera, mouse, or keyboard to be attached to them.


With the OTG cable, you can use the infinix hot note in charging other devices. Not just android devices but basically every mobile phone.

    • Nana, well, it depends on what you aim to achieve. If you don’t have a cogent reason as to why you want to root your phone, i don’t think you should root it.

  • Good evening engr Samuel Adeniyi. I mistakenly cancelled/deleted/disabled my infinix hot note inbuilt fast charging installation, since then, i had been experience serious slow charging functionality. Please sir,how can i restore my infinix hot note inbuilt fast charging installation?

    • Hello Muyiwa, the infinix hot note fast charging isn’t completely facilitated by the phone. But the charger instead. Use the default hot note charger and you should be fine.

  • Good day sir, im using a tecno 8H phone and i got an infinix charger for it with output of 2.0A the phone started charging fast like 4hrs charge can give me up to 80% all of a sudden it stopped charging fast like 4hrs wl give me 36% charge. Use d charger on other phones and it charges fast, use other chargers on it and slow charge. Ive used the charger for like 3weeks now. Tnks for ur advice in advance.

    • Cudi, Going by your explanation, i am guessing the battery is faulty. You should change it and hopefully, you should be fine.

  • Engr, thank you sir, what do you mean by default hot note charger? Since then i had been using BB charger, but the problem remain same, i still experience serious slow charging.
