Xiaomi has launched Mi Power Bank 3 with 30000 mAh battery capacity in China. This is the biggest power bank made available by the company so far. Currently, Xiaomi sells power banks with capacities of 10000 and 20000 mAh starting at Rs. 799 in India.
The power bank in China is priced at CNY 170 (approximately Rs 1,800) and will go on sale online through JD.com 18 June onwards. It weighs 657.9 grams with dimensions 160.5×96.5×44 mm. Xiaomi claims that the power bank can charge iPhone SE (2020) 10.5 times and Mi 10 or Redmi K30 Pro 4.5 times. Furthermore, the 18W fast charging, the company claimed, can charge an iPhone 11 completely in just 1.45 hours.
The power bank has two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, and one Micro-USB port. The USB-A and USB-C ports deliver 18W fast charging to the connected smartphone. This should ensure that your phone gets topped up rather quickly. Mi Power Bank also has a special low power mode for devices such as Bluetooth headphones, smartwatches and fitness bands. The low power mode is turned on by pressing the power button twice. The power bank for itself supports 24W fast charging using the USB-C port. Xiaomi claims a charging time of 7.5h for the power bank when using Xiaomi’s proprietary 30W charger.
Xiaomi is expected to bring Mi Power Bank 3 to other markets, however, there has been no announcement so far. Power Banks have become essential with growing smartphone usage. People who don’t have access to a plug point throughout the day are most likely to carry a power bank. A power bank with a capacity of 30000 mAh could be a game-changer in the Indian market where it is hard to find to find a big power bank from a trusted brand.
