Last week ZMI/Xiaomi relaunched the Mi Pro Power Bank, throwing in a protective case, a cable that has both a USB Type-C and micro-USB head and giving it a new price. We thought that was the end of power banks from Xiaomi for the year, but we were wrong. The company has just released a second generation Mi power bank called the Mi Power 2.
Xiaomi says the Mi Power 2 uses a high density lithium polymer 10000mAh battery which is better than the previous type and the commonly used 18650 batteries but still retains the advantage of being easily moulded or shaped into thinner profiles.
The power bank also has the 2-way fast charge technology present in the Mi Power Bank Pro, allowing you to charge your phone quickly if it supports fast charge and also recharge the power bank quickly as well.
The Mi Power 2 is equipped with a Texas Instrument chip that provides 9 types of protection including temperature protection, input and output high voltage protection, short circuit protection, high current output protection, battery overcharge protection, and a reset function which lets you reset the circuit if the power bank doesn’t work by pushing the power button and returning it to working mode.
Mi Power 2 is made from a single piece of aluminium alloy with a 180° arc and an ergonomic design allowing it fit in your hands easily. Xiaomi has ditched the USB Type-C input port from the Mi Power Bank Pro and replaced it with a micro USB input port. You still have 4-LED lights to indicate the amount of charge left and a power button beside it. The 2nd gen Mi Power Bank comes in dark grey and silver colours and sells for just 79 Yuan ($12)
