UPDATE: Xiaomi 20,000mAh Power Bank and Mi Band Pulse official pricing revealed.
Apart from their new Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi Malaysia is bringing a couple of new accessories to our local market very soon. The first device as teased above is their new powerbank that packs a huge 20,000mAh capacity.
The new 20,000mAh powerbank is huge on power but it is considerably light at 338 grams. As a comparison, their 16,000 mAh powerbank weighs 350 grams while two 10,000mAh power banks weigh 414 grams combined. For better grip, the body uses polycarbonate with a perforated texture. There are 2x USB outputs that push a maximum of 5.1V/3.6A combined.
Replenishing this 20,000mAh brick is done quickly as it supports quick charge via 5V/2A, 9V/1.2A and 12V/1.5A. They reckon that you can charge up 11,000mAh in just 3 hours. In China, the 20,000mAh power bank is going for 149 CNY which is about RM90, but we reckon it will be priced higher when it gets here.
The 2nd device is their new updated Mi Band which now comes with a heart rate sensor. It looks the same as before but you’ll find an optical sensor underneath. Like the current version, it also tracks your steps, sleeping pattern and you can also use it to unlock your Mi smartphone when you’re within range. It is also IP67 resistant and this could probably last up to 30 days depending on your usage. The new Mi Band is priced at 99CNY which is about RM60.
With the Redmi Note 3 going on sale next week on 6 April, we are guessing that these 2 new products could go on sale on the same day as well. The Redmi Note 3 is priced at RM749 for the 2GB RAM + 16GB storage model, while the higher spec 3GB RAM + 32GB storage version is going for RM849. We’ll let you know once we have more details.
