Xiaomi has announced its latest power bank – the Mi Power Bank 2 – which will come with the same battery capacity as the one introduced in India earlier – 20,000mAh. But the Mi Power Bank 2 will also support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and two way fast charging technologies.
Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2 has been priced at CNY 149 (approx Rs 1500) which is quite close to the price of the 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank which is currently selling for Rs 1,450 in India. The Mi Power Bank 2 will go on sale in China on 19 December. The company has not yet announced an India launch date.
The Mi Power Bank 2 looks quite similar to the first variant except that it’s slightly narrower and thicker at 135.5 x 67.6 x 23.9 mm. It retains the surface bumps that was there in the first gen variant to ensure a good grip.
It makes use of high-density Li-polymer batteries. The single port power output on the Mi Power Bank 2 is 5V/2.4A – 9V/2A and 12V/1.5A. The dual port rating is unchanged at 5V/3.6A.
According to Xiaomi, the Mi Power Bank 2 can charge a Xiaomi Mi Max (which has a whopping 4850mAh battery) within 2.5 hours. It supports 18W charging and low-current discharging as well.
The Mi Power Bank 2 is available only in white colour.
