Xiaomi has added to their huge range of accessories with a new USB Type-C compatible Mi Powerbank Pro.
Xiaomi make some pretty good powerbanks, here at What Mobile we all own our very own 10,000 mAh Mi Powerbank. The Powerbank Pro will be made of aluminium like previous entries, with what seems to be that classy smooth finish we’re so used to. It’s of course portable with convenient sizing; 128.5 x 75 x 12.6mm. While only weighing in at 223 grams.
Xiaomi are boasting nine layers of circuit protection to ensure it won’t blow up while being charged. It’s also been upgraded to support fast charging, with a maximum wattage of 18W. With a device that supports fast charging, Xiaomi claims it can charge a device from 0% to 100% in three and a half hours. The much beloved last generation Mi Powerbank takes around seven hours to do so.
True to Xiaomi’s way of doing things, the Mi Powerbank Pro will be priced competitively low. It will retail in China for 149 Yuan, which equates to £16. Sounds about right. An international release hasn’t been confirmed but you can definitely get your hands on one when it goes on sale, through the magical Interwebz.
