I regularly use a Mi Power Bank 10400mAh, and a non-oem micro usb cable. I timed how long my Lenovo P2 took to charge on this - it went from 5% to 100% in about 3.5 hours, while I was still intermittently using the P2 for web browsing etc. I would call that a fast enough charge for my needs.
The other powerbanks I have (as well as the other non-Lenovo usb chargers which I have) are unable to charge the phone in under 7 hours (usually not reaching beyond 75% capacity within that timeframe), and I doubt that leaving it a few hours longer on these incorrect chargers will make much improvement.
I am about to buy another Mi Power Bank 10400mAh from ebay, just because it works pretty well for my needs. These work well enough for other smartphones also.
azhar75, 26 Sep 2017And that so-called "regular" charger will get full charge (from 10%) in 2 hours...?Yes using LG G2 charger works just fine

Annoymous, 25 Sep 2017Display good,battery performance beyond ur expections Yes P2 is the best phone on the market, just remember to clean cache once in a while and save over 1gb diskspace and lagging ui
Proud owner, 25 Sep 2017@Azhar my p2 is not fast charging when I use brand new MI power bank 2 10000mah with stock p2 ... moreP2 is adopting PROPRIETARY fast charge tech. Totally different than VOOC/Dash and Qualcomm Quick Charge. Hence, any 3rd party charger or powerbank will not be 100% compatible with P2.
However, using the Mi 10,000 Slim Pro Powerbank will finish around 45 minutes more than the stock Rocket Charger. This is pretty much similar to Qualcomm QC 2.0 rate (for 5.1K mAh capacity).

@azhar75 How to get rid of air bubble lining that is created at the edges due to the 2.5D nature?
Proud owner, 25 Sep 2017@Azhar my p2 is not fast charging when I use brand new MI power bank 2 10000mah with stock p2 ... moreFast charging only takes place with the stock adapter.... Any powerbank doesn't give you a high input...
Fast charging depends on both phone and the output of the adapter...

ToonToon, 23 Sep 2017Check the settings > System button. You can also use fingerprint sensor as a navigation button.I think it's still not as comfortable as normal keys. I wish I could change it's behavior like double tap the button for recent apps.
