You can use SC8701 in application where you need to draw 5A. The current capacity will depend on the external FET which actually provides the power.
SC8701 has Integrated 10V , 2A Gate Driver to control the FETs.
I found the "5A (Max)" description on VBUS line in main board schematic.
And the external FETs have a capability of over 5A.
Thanks and best regards,
