Today I’ll be writing a review for the MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank. A second review for MOMAX after my MOMAX Q.Power TOUCH Power Bank review from a couple of weeks ago. This model is a wireless only compatible power bank, so has no USB-A or USB-C ports.
You get a 5000mAh capacity power bank, a 7.5W maximum charge, a kickstand and above all, a cool futuristic aesthetic look. The MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank has been designed primarily for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 devices, but I’m a rebel and I’m using on for my Samsung S20 FE, but it does mean I can’t judge all the features.
MOMAX advertise you’re able to utilise a special charging mode for low current devices below 60mA (e.g., AirPods Pro/Fitness Tracker, etc.)
MOMAX provides complete protection for you and your devices, it built-in overheat, over-charge, short-circuit and FOB protection.
So, is this power bank any good? Time to test it out!
Packaging and Contents.
The MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank comes packaged cardboard box, which features product images and specifications. The box measures 15.0cm x 11.5cm x 3.0cm and weighs 267G.
Inside the box you’ll find the following: 1x Power Bank, 1x User Guide.
MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank.
The MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank measures 10.3cm x 6.2cm x 1.6cm and weighs 174G. The outer materials are a mixture of both metals and plastics. You get a clear front casing which shows the inner gubbins of the power bank.
On the bottom area you’ll see the LED indicators lights, an Apple MFI certified Lightning port and the power button.
Personally, I would’ve liked MOMAX to supply a USB-A/Lightning cable, luckily, I had access to a cable to charge the power bank.
Charging and Use.
Charging takes around a couple of hours to complete a charge cycle and is indicated by the side LED lights. A full charge will provide power roughly for the following devices:
- iPhone 13/iPhone 13 Pro – 0.8 charges.
- iPhone 13 Pro Max/iPhone12 – 0.5 charges.
A quick press of the power switch shows the battery remaining level and status.
- 1x Red LED On: Wireless charging mode is on.
- 1x Green LED On: Fast charging is on.
- 4x White LED On: Battery Level >75%.
- 3x White LED On: Battery Level >50%.
- 2x White LED On: Battery Level >25%.
- 1x White LED On: Battery Level >10%.
- 1x White LED Flashing: Battery Level <10%.
If you’re using an iPhone 12 or 13, then you can take advantage of the pull-out kickstand, I tried with my Samsung, but my phone is chonky boi and toppled over. The stand does require some prising out to stay in position, I’m sure as it wears in it’ll be easier to use.
The magnet feature which sticks to the back of iPhones 12 and 13 does not work on my device either, so I can’t comment on the magnet.
To use the wireless power bank in a laid down position, press the power button to awake the power bank, then place down your device. A red LED will show to indicate a wireless charge is in progress.
The MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank features a special charge option for small powered 60mA items such as AirPods and fitness trackers for example. To activate this feature, you need to press the power button to activate the power bank, then press the power button again twice quickly in succession. The 4 LED’s will flash repeatedly to indicate correct operation. Remember to repeat the same process when finished to switch back to normal use.

The MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank is alright. I love the aesthetic look, but, although I didn’t have an iPhone 12 or 13 to test all the features, to not be able to charge at least one battery cycle is a bit piss poor if I’m being honest. From what I tested on my Samsung S2 FE the MOMAX Q.MAG POWER 5 Power Bank does charge wireless my device, but it’s incredibly slow. It’s a shame as visually, it’s a thing of beauty.
