    Default higher ampere rating for nexus 5 ?

    Can i use a Sony CP-F10L power bank which has a max output of 3.6A to charge my nexus 5 ?
    Will there be any overheating problem and damage to the battery of my N5?

    You probably could, but I'd be worried about it overheating/getting damaged. If you still have the stock cable, use that instead. Not worth killing your battery so that it could save you a few minutes on charging times.

    It won't damage the phone, the charging circuit in the phone won't take more than it can use. As long as the phone says charging (AC) there isn't anything you can do to make it charge faster. If it says charging (USB) then the charger or cable isn't exactly compatible and will charge at a lower rate, but it will charge.

    As maxburn said, no, it will not compromise your phone or battery at all. UJ95x's comment is completely wrong.

    I'm with UJ95x here. Given the problems we encounter from time to time with phones even when we use them with a sensible degree of care, I see no reason at all to invite trouble by doing things in any way other than those recommended by the manufacturers.
