A power bank is more than just a lifesaver for your phone. With more devices relying on USB power, Xiaomi has announced its largest power bank yet, with a gigantic 20,000mAh capacity.
The current 16,000mAh power bank which retails for RM89 is quite a heft at 350 grams and Xiaomi has managed to make the new 20,000mAh version lighter at only 338 grams. That’s even lighter than two of the latest 10,000mAh power bank that weighs 207 gram each.
The design is different from its current models as it uses polycarbonate materials instead of the usual metal, contributing to its massive weight reduction. To provide better grip, the power bank has a perforated texture on top which Xiaomi claims to be scratch resistant. Like the 16,000mAh version, there are two USB outputs, that pushes a maximum of 5.1V/3.6A combined. It is even capable of charging a USB Type-C enabled MacBook up to 1.2X. A 4-LED battery level indicator is retained at the top, while the power/status button has been shifted to the side.
Knowing that 20,000mAh will take almost eternity to charge up to full, it supports quick charge supporting 5V/2A, 9V/1.2A and 12V/1.5A. In just 3 hours, you would have gotten 11,000mAh charged, compared to its 10,000mAh power bank that does 5,000mAh in the same duration. Like all Mi Power Banks, it gets 9 layers of protection using Texas Instrument chips for safety and charging efficiency.
The 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank goes on sale in China for 149 CNY (about RM101.40) and it will be available on Single’s Day on 11th November. That’s bang for your buck considering the 10,000mAh Power Bank is going for 79CNY / RM59 (Mi Store Malaysia). It only comes in white and so far there’s no word of its availability outside of China.
