Xiaomi has introduced its massive 30,000mAh Mi Power Bank 3 which holds more backup power on the go. This is basically the higher capacity version of its 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank 3 which supports 2-way fast charging.
In China, it’s priced at CNY 169 (about RM101) and it comes with 2x USB-A ports, 1x USB-C and 1x microUSB port. The USB-C port supports 2-way charging while the microUSB port is only for input.
Similar to the 20,000mAh version, the 30,000mAh power bank supports up to 18W output and you can charge 3 devices at the same time via the two full-sized USB and the USB-C port. According to Xiaomi, this power bank has the capacity to charge the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Redmi K30 Pro 4.5 times or the latest iPhone SE 2020 10.5 times.
If you’re using the USB-C to Lightning cable, the power bank can support fast charging for the new iPhone models. An iPhone 11 which supports 18W USB-PD charging can be charged fully in 1 hour and 45 minutes with the 30,000mAh power bank.
