Default Nexus 5 charging

The nexus 5's charge has a 5.0v output (correct me if im wrong) so here the question is it ok to charge it with a 5.3v output powerbank?

Yes. Your phone regulates the current supplied to the battery so 5.3v will be fine.
You only risk damage of you go stupid voltages

Honestly, I'd personally play it safe and use the exact charging brick that the phone came with. Even in the Nexus 5 manual LG opposes of the use in using another charger other than the one the Nexus 5 comes with.

I used to use my wife's charger for he xperia z1s but I found that sometimes it would not charge even though it has the same specs so I would watch it and make sure it is charging correctly.
